Good & Bad Therapy. A conversation with Robert Rowland Smith

An audio version of this conversation is at my podcast, Talks and Thoughts, available via podcast feeds.

Therapies of various kinds are routinely in the news. And there is much to be said for the ease with which people talk about mental ill-health.

But psychotherapy, in particular, can also received critique. What works on the couch? How do different traditions and techniques foster change? And is all that can happen to us well viewed through the lens of trauma?

Clearly, there is trauma in the world and too much of it. But there are other ways of approaching suffering. Maybe we are at a moment when they might be brought into the conversation, too?
