    EP14: Relationship Attachment Styles, Part 2

    Well, it's the so-called "cuffing season," which means folks may be feeling the pressure to find someone to snuggle up with or to lock things down with that cutie they've already found. It's a fitting time of year to wrap up our mini-series on attachment styles because Therapy Jeff and Sarah Rice are breaking down all the ways different attachment styles interact with one another. For example, what happens when two anxiously attached people get together? Fireworks! Maybe some inadvertent love bombing? Sarah and Jeff are breaking down the tendencies that can lead to stress or roadblocks in your relationship and offering ways you can address those issues to make sure your relationship is as strong and healthy as you want it to be!

    Jeff shares the story of his first kiss. It's very sweet. Got a good one, yourself? We'd love to hear it!

    Relationship Attachment Styles, Part 1

    Relationship Attachment Styles, Part 1

    Sarah Rice and Therapy Jeff are breaking down a topic that listeners have been asking for: relationship attachment styles. Attachment styles are established with our earliest relationships, so they can be deeply ingrained and take a lot of work to recognize and work through. Jeff tells us why the securely attached might seem boring, but really they're #goals. Sarah tells us what secure attachment has in common with The Four Agreements. They also outline dismissive/avoidant, anxious, and disorganized attachment styles. Then, they outline some useful ways to think about your own attachment style and how it interacts with the attachment style of your partner(s). Sarah and Jeff each suggest a few ways to work on becoming more secure in your own attachment style, and Sarah provides a delicious metaphor in the process.

    Home for the Holidays Survival Guide

    The holidays can be a really wonderful time to connect with the people you care about, but that doesn't mean they aren't also a really stressful time. Whether it's as simple as feeling like you have to wrap the presents exactly right, or the more complicated aspects of going home for the holidays, especially when home doesn't always feel like the safest place, Sarah and Therapy Jeff are sharing their best strategies for making it through the holidays, no matter what you're dealing with. Sarah talks about the importance of making your own traditions. Jeff shares what it was like the first time he decided he wasn't going home for the holidays. If you think you might need to skip out on the family celebrations this year, that's okay. And remember, you're not going to fix your childhood trauma over Thanksgiving dinner. The most important thing is that you take care of yourself, no matter the time of year.

    Understanding, Recognizing, and Dealing with Anxiety

    Understanding, Recognizing, and Dealing with Anxiety

    Sarah Rice and Therapy Jeff are talking about that old classic, anxiety. Jeff provides a useful explanation of the actual science behind how anxiety works in your brain and what you can do to help yourself work through it when it feels like anxiety is really taking over. Sarah breaks down the ways that physiological, cognitive, and emotional responses can feed and be fed by anxiety. Jeff has some strategies for recognizing early subtle signs of oncoming anxiety. Sarah talks about grounding as a really helpful way to manage anxiety in the moment. Jeff and Sarah trade their favorite grounding exercises, from doing semi-complicated mental math to five-finger breathing. Remember though, no matter how you get there, when it comes to anxiety, your main goal is to convince your brain that it's safe. This episode is chock full of great ways to think through and about anxiety.
    Sarah recommends Bruce D. Perry and Oprah Winfrey's book What Happened to You?: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing. The audiobook is especially good!

    Therapy Jeff and Sarah Rice are back, and they're answering even more of your sex-related questions. This week, they tackle tricky questions like:
    -How important is sexual chemistry?
    -Is it okay if my partner thinks about someone else when they m********e?
    -Are kinks a dealbreaker?
    -How do I talk to a potential partner about having an STI?
    -How to manage high and low desire discrepancies in a relationship?
    Hint: the answer is almost always, "it depends," and/or "just say the thing."
    Plus, Sarah tells us how she took some advice she and Jeff shared last week and applied it to her own relationship. There's also plenty of talk in this episode about what makes Halloween the sexiest holiday and why Jeff has wet dream envy. So, you know, it's a totally typical episode of This Changes Everything.
    Thank you all so much for your fun and thoughtful questions! We'll be doing this again sometime, so keep them coming.

I love it here!!

Came to this show because of Jeff, I wast that big on Sarah but she’s really grown on me. They have good chemistry. I just wish the episodes were longer 😭

Who’s show is this?

They are each great, but like steak and chocolate, they don’t mix.

Long-form podcasting works better for Jeff than his excellent but too-short TikToks. But I may go back to TikTok where he can at least finish a thought.
No one likes to be cut off when talking or experience vicarious cringe when it happens to others.

It just seems like they’re on two different shows.

Love Sarah, Jeff not so much

I’ve tried to love this show as a longtime fan of Sarah’s. As much as I love her on this podcast, I can’t get into Jeff. He seems so proud to be self-centered and he is very repetitive in the ‘advice’ he gives. The show as a whole doesn’t really dig deep into the topics it’s supposed to cover. It’s more like a very surface-level talk of defining terms most people nowadays understand and talking about boundaries every two seconds. The answer to every topic is to create boundaries. After listening to the first 13 episodes, I gave it a good try and decided it’s not for me.
