Everything is Psychological
About This Show
Every time I tell someone I am a psychologist there are questions about what we do. What people find out is that everything is psychological. There isn't an aspect of ones life that isn't affected by our thoughts and emotions. This show's goal is to educate everyone on what psychology is all about, and how it can improve each of our lives. Join me for in depth discussions of psychological concepts and theories, and for interviews with the psychologists that are practicing the start of the art of the field right now.

The 3 O's of Mindfulness - Episode 21
May 16 16
In this episode we continue our discussion of mindfulness. We start to delve into the details of how to begin the practice of mindfulness. This practice enables us to become more aware of our experiences, our feelings, and our thoughts. If we want to make changes for ourselves we must first become aware of the things we need to change. Increasing awareness is our first step to change. Mindfulness will help us with this. Dan Siegel (www.mindsight.com) suggests we engage in a process of observance, objectivity, and openness. We observe our feelings and thoughts, we are objective about them, and then we are open to them. This will decrease our anxiety and our struggle to make them different. Acceptance eases our tension, and makes flexibility more available. In this episode we also talk about the need for development as therapists. Scott Miller (www.scottdmiller.com) has great research on why we should engage in continuous development of our skills. As always be awesome by being you.
