Well developed short conversations on interesting things in psych

I though these were well developed and easy to listen to for mental health clinicians. I recommend these to my residents.

As a side note- if you look at the reviews, it’s pretty much 5 star or 1 star. I would take the 1 star reviews with a grain of salt.
