In Episode 21, Martin speaks with Alison Crosthwait, Registered Therapist in Toronto, Canada, author of the blog The Good Therapists, and creator of the online course, Therapy School. Together they discuss some major dilemmas that can impact mental health and the practice of psychotherapy, such as:
What happens when real life experience differs from what we're told it "should" be?
Why might positive affirmations and quotes actually be dangerous?
Is it possible to develop an "addiction" to therapy?
Is assigning "Homework" in therapy useful? Or harmful?
How much or how little is helpful for you to know about your therapist?
Listen in and get in on the discussion.
