A podcast is a great medium for someone who likes to listen, who may have a hard time concentrating on printed text, and who loves to learn. Some of my clients have stated they don’t know what a podcast is, or how to listen to one. If this describes you see if this article helps.

Here are some of the podcasts I have found helpful. Please remember that these may be emotionally triggering. If you find something is too upsetting to listen to, turn it off. 


Therapy Chat

Therapy Chat is a podcast hosted by Laura Reagan, LCSW, who covers a wide range of issues.  The content is very strong and her interviewing style is understated and easy to listen to.   You can scroll through her list (she has over 150 podcasts) and likely will find something that you find useful—when going down the list of podcasts you will see a tiny “i” in a talk bubble on the right—click on that, and you can find a description of the podcast.


Relationships Alive

Relationships Alive also has an extensive library of podcasts on mental health issues, hosted by thoughtful interviewer Neil Sattin and featuring an impressive range of experts in the field. I often direct people to two podcasts in particular, so they can understand Richard Schwartz, the founder of Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS). This is one of the therapy modalities which I use in my practice, and both of these are excellent and thorough interviews for anyone wanting to learn more.

Beyond Surviving

Rachel Grant is a coach who has a podcast called "Beyond Surviving" on childhood sexual abuse.  This podcast is best listened to from the start and consecutively. There are many interesting topics and the content is not explicit or triggering. As the name of the series implies, the focus is on hope and survival.
