    Don't Go It Alone: Mental Health Needs Company

    PART OF A SPECIAL 6-WEEK SERIES | Our communities can help us live “the good life.” But what about the people that tick us off? How do we form more resilient relationships that make us healthier and more connected? We discuss these things with Dr. Curt Thompson, psychiatrist and author of The Soul of Shame. He says that repairing broken relationships can actually usher us into a *greater* connection with others than we had previously.

Shame and spirituality

I’ve listened to several of these presentations. This one gets an A++. I learned so much from this relatively short lecture . So often shame is connected at the hip with guilt. Finally I can discern unequivocally their differences, it’s effects on creativity and the way it obstructs the connections and growth between us and another. Thank you!

Keep it up!

Been listening to these for a number of years now, very helpful.

Just finished “Considering a Career during COVID-19.” Great topic, I appreciated the back-and-forth, occasionally picking daisies. Felt like sitting in a room with 2 professors who were happy to answer real questions.

Bad Audio

These conversations deserve to be heard, but the audio is poor. Perhaps the events themselves could be recorded a bit better.
