A while back we wrote about three great therapy podcasts, and the Talking Therapy podcast was on our list. Hosts RJ Thomas and John Webber are therapists themselves. They offer a relaxed, conversational tone even when dealing with big names in the field like Susan Johnson. They approach the show as true students of the craft of therapy, making for some fascinating discussions even with lesser-known guests.
I loved the show long before they were kind enough to have me on as a guest. Some great episodes include the Sue Johnson one linked above, and the episode on treating self-injury with Angela Kahn. (She’s now Angela Caldwell, so I’m more than a little biased. But it really is a great listen.)
I’ll be back on in a future episode, trying to start a fight with John over a commonly-misunderstood statistic. He won’t take me up on the fight — he’s far too kind of a host — so we move on from there to talking about Emotional Support Animals and a number of other current issues in the world of psychotherapy.
We’re happy to report that not only is the Talking Therapy podcast back with these great new episodes, but that Ben Caldwell Labs is now an exclusive sponsor. Our agreement starts with the most recent episode, with Nicol Stolar-Peterson talking about therapists’ involvement with court systems. As John and RJ note in the show’s opening, the information here can help therapists understand when they’ve been “working without a net.” We make some common mistakes when setting up our policies and practices for clients’ legal issues, and Nicol is a great guide to identifying and resolving them.
Listen, like, and subscribe through iTunes, Stitcher, or your favorite podcast portal. And please do check out all the great stuff that we have to offer here at Ben Caldwell Labs. The Psychotherapy Notes blog is just the tip of the iceberg of what we do.
John and RJ, we’re proud to be on board. Keep up the great work!
