Not for the faint of heart or sensitive spirit, Dr. Gary Bell's Absurd Psychology is about helping our lives in the insane world we exist today. It is a sarcastic, smart and witty view of the lives we cope with, including straight answers, real information and new perspectives to bring LIFE back to our existence. Dr. Bell brings deep insight, common sense and weaves general knowledge of how the brain is operating under various circumstances. Dr. Bell challenges us all to OWN our lives. How do we become change in an ever changing world? If anything, you might sound smarter to your friends. Everyone is an armchair therapist, but now you will know enough to be dangerous. No whining or caterwauling allowed! This is a search for essence, passion and meaning as we exist surrounded by mediocrity, insecurity and insignificance. Take your medication and listen. You might learn something.
Is Your Relationship Healthy?
Much of my professional career has involved speaking, writing, and interpreting research about how to handle relationships that have gone wrong: partnerships that are controlling or toxic, for instance, or where trust has been broken.
Responsibility: Our Lost Value
the word ‘responsibility’ and how often it gets confused with blame, which of course implies that someone or something is at fault for a given situation.
School Shooter Profile
It's hard to empathize with someone who carries out a school shooting. The brutality of their crimes is unspeakable. Whether the shootings were in Uvalde, Columbine, or Parkland, they have traumatized students and communities across the U.S.
Fear of Failure
Rejection is a bitter pill to swallow. And most of us have had a good dose of it.
The Rise of Self Esteem
Confidence in one's value as a human being is a precious psychological resource and generally a highly positive factor in life; it is correlated with achievement, good relationships, and satisfaction.
Anxiety: Living in Fear
Anxiety is both a mental and physical state of negative expectation.
My thinking has shifted since I’ve started listening to your podcast. Thank you for the work you put into millions of people. The people rating this podcast with negative reviews sound like the DRAMA narcissistic people you teach about in your lessons. It’s sad that people would come on here to deflect their insecurities when you’re sacrificing your time and sharing your talents with the world. Keep spreading the word and continue to shine regardless. God bless you!
I love your podcast, it's my go to first. I wish you would do more on healthy relationships and positive and negative people. I happen to love some negative people, and feel they get a very bad rap.
I have constant trouble loading these podcasts, and not sure why.
Waste of Time
Inaccurate, poorly researched, out of touch with modern psychological studies and developments in the field.
