    Episode 58: Nurturing Adult Friendships, with Dr. Andrea Bonior

    I enjoyed a lively conversation today with Dr. Andrea Bonior, a licensed Clinical Psychologist and faculty member of Georgetown University. Dr. Bonior spoke with me today about nurturing adult friendships, and the importance of friendships to both physical and emotional health and well-being.  She talked about many aspects of friendships, including:
    picking and maintaining the right friends for your personality
    recognizing when friendships are healthy versus unhealthy
    how life events can challenge friendships and how to face these challenges
    recognizing the normal ebbs and flows of friendships
    differences between males and females on making and maintaining friendships
    frindships and social media
    simple suggestions for nurturing existing friendships
    Dr. Bonior recently launched her own psychology podcast called Baggage Check: Mental Health Talk and Advice, which premiered November 1st.  Baggage Check is about getting real regarding mental health and making listeners part of the conversation. She’s written several books on topics of psychology, including THE FRIENDSHIP FIX about topics related to Adult Friendships.
    Dr. Bonior is a frequent commentator in media outlets such as NPR, CNN, The Today Show, The NY Times, and the Washington Post, and her Psychology Today blog has been read more than 25 million times. She speaks to audiences large and small about work-life balance and mental and emotional health.

Interesting and thought-provoking

I’ve never really been into podcasts (I never really thought of myself as an auditory learner) but thought I’d give this one a try. I haven’t listened to all the episodes yet, but I am impressed by the variety of guests and topics that are featured. I like how there are practitioners in the community of Hawai’i as well as creative individuals such as scholars and writers in the continent. It’s interesting to listen to, both as a consumer of therapy services and a student.

Excellent podcast

I’ve listened to a number of Mind Tricks Radio episodes and have to say that I enjoyed every one of them. The guests and Dr. Kaplan speak in terms that anyone can understand and cover topics that I think most of us can relate to. Also, Dr. Kaplan is a great interviewer - he asks smart questions and it feels like you’re simply listening into a casual conversation between two people who really know their stuff. Highly recommend.

Smart and interesting

Really enjoyed the recent interview with Dr. Zucker. Her information about panic attacks was highly useful and compelling.
