Twice monthly, psychologist and therapist Jared DeFife, Ph.D. presents insightful interviews and stories about psychology, culture, and relationships from amazing experts with great stories to tell and meaningful wisdom to share. The School of Psych podcast is less about giving "5 simple tips for a great marriage" and more about people sharing deep and heartfelt stories like "what I learned about the psychology of fear from dangling off the ledge of 1,000 ft tall building" or "how I went from a reluctant bride to counseling couples as New York's 'Wedding Doctor'", and "how my journey to learn about unrequited love and romantic obsession began after becoming obsessed with someone who didn't love me back". Along the way, we'll learn about love, life, loss, fear, anger, joy, creativity, and happiness. Authors, sociologists, psychologists, journalists, therapists, artists, and more will be asked to dig deep into their own personal passions, triumphs, heartbreaks, failures, and eureka moments to help us learn more about who we are, what we think, and how we relate.

Live well & Live Thoughtfully

After dealing with many things dealing with the topic you two discussed really help me with my thoughts. I ordered Lisa’s book and I’m going to give it a read. I want to say thank you both for this podcast.... it’s an amazing start to recovering from such an event.

Thank you.

Fun Topics

I'm enjoying your podcast! The episode on superhero therapy was especailly powerful for me. My husband and kids are all about super heroes but I was never interested. Since listening to this episode I've announced to them my desire to watch all of the Marvel movies...have only finished Iron Man so far but am looking forward to the rest :). As a therapist I love to learn from other experts- the people you're interviewing seem to be off the beaten path- great stuff!

Thoughtful Interviews

Jared has a great energy, and his podcast is very well-produced. He makes the content so entertaining and informative that I stayed in my car to finish listening to the first episode for an extra 10 minutes after I got home. I can’t wait to hear the future episodes!
