This podcast series, “To Hell and Back,” is focused on the nature of hellish experiences in life, how people get into them, and to present and discuss tools for coping with hell and getting out. The various podcasts will move back and forth between different varieties of hell in life, and different tools for coping. The tools will be drawn from dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), from other treatments, and from other life experiences.

Grateful you’re back!
I appreciate your podcast very much and I’m so grateful to see you are back! I miss
listening to you🙏🤗
Useful both professionally and personally
As clinician interning at a fully adherent DBT clinic, Dr. Swenson’s podcast is incredibly useful both personally and professionally. Dr. Swenson’s ability to explain DBT and the various DBT skills is second to none. He artfully takes deceptively simple skills, such as the skill of “Observation”, and explores them in great depth while weaving in personal and clinical stories that highlight the utility of the skill. He also uses humor and personal self disclosure to drive home what are at times abstract ideas and concepts.
My only gripe with Dr. Swenson’s work is that there isn’t more of it! The “DVD” section of his website is empty, and I am hoping he has plans to produce recorded seminars at some point.
Useful and inspiring
As a DBT therapist, I have loved this podcast. I have also recommended it to family and clients. Charlie has a gift for bringing the skills to life with good stories. I am grateful for this work.
