Dr. Susan Johnson joins us to talk about her pioneering work in Emotionally Focused Therapy.  EFT is a way to practice couples counseling that is overwhelmingly supported by scientific research. Dr. Johnson talks about attachment theory as the basis for EFT but also talks about some of the other frameworks she has drawn from.  She talks not only about how EFT works, but why it works, especially in a world that seems to be filled with divorce and where our very views of relationships appear to be changing at a rapid pace. She talks about working with couples in distress but also talks about how EFT has been shown to help with post traumatic stress disorder, parents of chronically ill children and with heart patients.

Human emotions are a tricky thing. Some of us are good with them, some of us are not, but few of us really understand them fully. Adrian Hall, MFT joins us to talk about what she calls, the Human Emotional System. As we grow up, she tells us, we learn about math, science, history and our biological systems, but no one teaches us about our emotions and this can cause problems for us later. Adrian discusses her practice of psychotherapy and how she works with people to do that learning now.

John and RJ sit down to discuss the status of the show and how they've really just been kind of lazy about the whole thing... well, maybe not entirely. This is actually a fun conversation about not only the status of the show but about what's it's like dealing with personal stress and working as a psychotherapist.
