You're listening to the Stoic Solutions Podcast - practical wisdom for everyday life. I'm Justin Vacula and this is episode 58 – Modern Stoicism and Online Communities with Donald Robertson. We talk about the appeal of Stoic Philosophy in modern times, the benefits of online communities, challenges associated with online discussion and moderation, dealing with insults, handling adversity, and modern Stoic resources including online training courses and larger events. Today's special guest Donald Robertson is a writer and trainer with over twenty years’ experience. He’s a specialist in teaching evidence-based psychological skills, and known as an expert on the relationship between modern cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and classical Greek and Roman philosophy. He was born in Scotland and worked as a psychotherapist for twenty years in London where he ran a training school for therapists before moving to Canada to focus on his writing and developing new online training courses. He is an experienced public speaker. His therapy practice specialised for many years in helping clients with social anxiety and self-confidence issues. His work, and that of his colleagues, has often featured in the media of different countries, including a recent article on the front cover of the Toronto Globe and Mail. -- Visit my website at stoicsolutionspodcast.com where you can connect with me on social media; find past episodes on many podcast platforms; and join my Discord chat server for interactive discussion.
