TMWT Episode 008 – You Are Not the Problem: Externalization

Welcome to Thoughtful Mind with Tzvi: Personal Growth, Mental Health, and Interesting Ideas. We're a podcast where we explore ways we can heal from the past, grow in positivity in the future, and find some food for thought along the journey.

In this week's episode, we talk about a way to kick your problems out of your head, take back control, and rebuild your relationship with your struggles. We are going to use Externalization, a powerful technique used to create distance from ourselves and our problems.

To me, Externalization is the foundational concept and skill out of which all else in Narrative practice emerges” – Walter Bera
