    Bart and Susan: (Part 2) How does a couples therapist learn to with help feelings of inadequacy?

    A NOTE FROM JASON:  


    Hi Again- In this second half of our first couple clinical interview we finish up the interview with Bart and Susan.  On the surface, their challenge in moving their relationship forward is about money, time and work, however, as we get into the session we find that the question of managing feelings of inadequacy is really where the help is needed.

    Human Nurture - Ep 16 - PACT in Theory - Ed Tronick and Claudia Gold on Attachment

    Human Nurture - Ep 16 - PACT in Theory - Ed Tronick and Claudia Gold on Attachment

    We have arrived at the final episode of Season 1 of Human Nurture! 


    Not only is this the finale, it is also about attachment theory-- one of PACT's main ingredients -- and it features the renowned researcher Ed Tronick. 


    Ed joins us with his co-author Claudia Gold to discuss their recently released book, The Power of Discord. Ed and Claudia offer a take on attachment theory that focuses on growth through the process of mismatch, mess and repair. They look at this process through Claudia's clinical work and Ed's attachment research with care-givers and young children through the Still Face Experiment. 


    It is a heart-felt interview that touches on the current discord in our lives as COVID-19 spreads across our world and the murder of George Floyd reverberates through protests in our streets. We are also joined by the founder of PACT, Stan Tatkin, who provides us with his thoughts on the interview with Ed and Claudia, attachment theory and the overwhelming challenges of this moment in our lives.

    Episode 11 Addendum-- Stan Tatkin on Somatic Therapy and Rob Fisher Interview

    Episode 11 Addendum-- Stan Tatkin on Somatic Therapy and Rob Fisher Interview

    In April of 2020, Rob Fisher joined us for the Somatic Episode (Episode #11) and I rushed it out because it provided some much needed grounding as COVID-19 began spreading to the United States and we entered into those early days of sheltering in place.  Releasing the episode quickly meant that I was unable to get Stan Tatkin's take on the interview with Rob.  It is now June of 2020, I caught up with Stan and he provides his great sense of humor and wise PACT-context on the somatic interview with Rob Fisher.

    Human Nurture - Ep 15 - PACT in Theory - Marjorie Rand on Somatic Therapy

    Human Nurture - Ep 15 - PACT in Theory - Marjorie Rand on Somatic Therapy

    We are getting close to the end of this first season of the Human Nurture Podcast as we do our deep dive into the underlying elements of the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy.  This episode is a second look at somatic therapy as seen through the perspective of Marjorie Rand, a long time Integrative Body Psychotherapist. 


    Marjorie co-authored the book Body, Self and Soul with the founder of IBP, Jack Rosenberg and has extensive training in yoga, gestalt and somatic therapies.  The episode is a nice compliment to Episode 11 which featured Rob Fisher and also covers somatic therapy.  Marjorie offers great examples of how to bring the body into our work with couples through experiential interventions. She will make you a believer in the use of breath and connection to the body as a way to sustain ourselves and remain deeply engaged both inside and outside the consulting room.

Super engaging podcast

I am not a therapist however I found this podcast to be extremely interesting to listen to.

Excellent show, full of insight and wisdom

If you’re curious what a couples therapy session sounds like and what goes on behind the scenes, this is a great show to listen to. I’m not a therapist and find this fascinating. The couples are real, the issues are ones I can relate to. I highly recommend this podcast.

Ryry the therapist ,

Such a gift

This podcast is so helpful. To be able to hear directly from the elders the masters in the field of therapy is an utter joy and very supportive too deepening my competency as a therapist.
