    Trauma and Codependency - Ep 616

    Trauma and Codependency - Ep 616

    Dr. Reedy explores the definition and origins of Codependency. He explains that the root of codependency is the way parents and other big people talk to and respond to the child. Codependency is a modern term that encompasses anxious attachment styles. He explains that codependency is NOT the cause of addiction in another but rather is at the core of all addictions. He teaches that healing codependency does not cure another person’s addiction but only resolves the codependency in the individual who is healing.

    Mindfulness and Psychotherapy - Ep 613

    Mindfulness and Psychotherapy - Ep 613

    Largely drawing from the book with the same name by Thich Nhat Hanh, Dr. Reedy explains mindfulness as a boarder idea than what people think of when considering mindfulness. He explains how therapy is a “talking mindfulness” practice. He explains several tenants on Buddhism including impermanence, non-duality, inter-being, and radical acceptance. He also clarifies that what Buddhists refer to as the concept of “non-attachment” is synonymous with the characteristic in psychology associated with a secure attachment.

    Attachment Theory in Therapy (Q&A) - Ep 612

    Attachment Theory in Therapy (Q&A) - Ep 612

    Dr. Reedy talks about how when we accept ourselves and are able to see who we are, we are able to move forward. Conversely, thinking of mental health in terms of being completely free of our issues is a breeding ground for denial. He talks about how guilt and shame are at the crux of so many of our dilemmas. He explains attachment theory and how it is thought of in the therapeutic relationship. He explains how we listen when we can and it is absolutely okay to set a boundary and remove ourselves from the conversation when we can’t listen to others.

    Technology Addiction - Ep 611

    Technology Addiction - Ep 611

    Dr. Reedy talks about the new epidemic in addiction: technology addiction. He covers some of the science behind game and technology design and how developers are using the most up-to-date and sophisticated science to hook their users. He explains how these designs, focused on dopamine and need for an individual’s sense of wellbeing, prey upon the chemical reaction when we experience a connection to others. He explains how nature-based therapy and mindfulness and starting early are keys in our fight against the ubiquitous issue of addiction to technology.

Warning: regular listening can improve your mental health.

Once you are on the path and journey of self discovery, there’s no going back. Brad Reedy is a wonderful guide. He is clear, direct, honest, vulnerable. He understands boundaries, how to explain them, and how to implement them. As we grow up in life, it’s important to shift your perspective- to engage with professionals, people, experiences, etc that change and challenge your viewpoint by a few degrees. It’s hard to change and grow- but it’s necessary! This podcast and his books are excellent resources for anyone- parents, young adults, and anyone with (or raising kids with) mental health issues. Let’s face it- we all need to do “the work”.

I’m learning how to be human and it’s helping me feel whole again.

The principles discussed in these podcasts and my practicing of them is healing. I’m a therapist by profession and I am seeing this improve my work in holding my clients emotions more effectively now. I have witnessed great healing in sessions by following the principles explained here. I can only hope this podcast helps its other listeners in the way it’s helped me.
