The Biggest Mistake People Make When Seeking Therapy - Jonathan Shedler

Walk-Ins Welcome Episode #287
4

Bridget sits down with clinical psychologist Jonathan Shedler and they discuss the challenges of finding qualified therapists, the division between practicioners and researchers in the field and the effects of that division, the lack of public understanding about legitimate therapy credentials, and the danger of the trend towards brief, "evidence-based" therapies that ignore the time and relationship required for true psychological change. They cover therapy as a collaborative process of deep self-discovery, the importance of nuance over black-and-white thinking, Freud's lasting contributions to the field, the impact of online culture, the overuse of therapeutic language, why therapy should not be a place to seek validation and empathy, how we need a a renaissance of insight-oriented psychotherapy, what to look for when interviewing potential therapists and the most important question you should ask them.
