Thoughtful discussions dealing with the many aspects of personality, psychology, and inter-personal relationships.
Does a positive outlook positively affect memory?
A new study finds that people who are cheerful and content, what psychologists call "positive affect," are less likely to experience memory decline as they age.
Understanding the emotional impact of rejection
Being rejected hurts, not being accepted into a group, being turned down for a date, or being ditched by a friend.
Feeling guilty for feeling happy?
A lot of people feel overwhelmed by the news lately. The pandemic continues, the political landscape is polarized, wildfires rage on the West Coast. This kind of upsetting information can leave people feeling conflicted if they are otherwise having a good day. In their weekly conversation, WHYY’s Maiken Scott and psychologist Dan Gottlieb discuss these feelings, and how we can handle them.

Healthcare workers have witnessed so much suffering and tragedy, worked long hours, dealt with PPE shortages, and feared for their own safety.
Too much togetherness can be challenging for couples
Do you remember that old Turtles song that goes “you and me, and me and you”??
That sounds great when you’re newly in love, but during a pandemic all this togetherness can become very difficult to manage! Especially when you add all of this stress. How is this impacting relationships?

Very helpful, informative podcast.
insightful, spiritual and compassionate
Those three words best describe Dr Gottlieb and his Voices in the Family program. I used to listen religiously, but have moved out of the area. I thought I'd keep up through podcasts. I am disapointed how few are available.
Very informative and yet so sensitive to the topics discussed. Wonderful host with an amazing depth and attention to the topics. I just wish the archives were available for podcasting!
