    The Influence of Gender Expression and Race on Discrimination against Sexual Minorities - Ep. 22

    Steph_Anderson.jpg
    On Episode 22, Dr. Steph Anderson, researcher and lecturer at the Graduate Center of CUNY, discusses her research on the intersection of sexual and ethnic minority experience from her dissertation entitled "(Dis)Entangling Gender Expression and Race in Antigay Discrimination: An Intersectional Approach".

    Far on the forefront of research in this area, Steph's work leads to a conversation about the Gender Inversion Stereotype, Attributional Ambiguity, and:
    - The overlap, as well as separation, between one's sexual orientation and one's gender.
    - The fluidity and racialization of gender norms.
    - The unique challenges of LGBTQ persons of color in interpreting their experiences of discrimination.
    - The many ways that privilege and oppression can be expressed or experienced.

    Tune in if you want some answers, but are open to leaving with even more questions.

    Dr. Steph Anderson can be contacted at Steph.M.Anderson@gmail.com.

    Key Dilemmas in Psychotherapy - Ep. 21

    Alison_Crosthwait.jpeg
    In Episode 21, Martin speaks with Alison Crosthwait, Registered Therapist in Toronto, Canada, author of the blog The Good Therapists, and creator of the online course, Therapy School. Together they discuss some major dilemmas that can impact mental health and the practice of psychotherapy, such as:

    What happens when real life experience differs from what we're told it "should" be?

    Why might positive affirmations and quotes actually be dangerous?

    Is it possible to develop an "addiction" to therapy?

    Is assigning "Homework" in therapy useful? Or harmful?

    How much or how little is helpful for you to know about your therapist?

    Listen in and get in on the discussion.

    Psychotherapy has a Major Image Problem - Ep. 20

    Ryan_Howes.jpg
    Dr. Ryan Howes is a Board Certified Clinical Psychologist practicing in Pasadena, CA. When the profession of Psychotherapy takes a few rounds to the gut in Episode 20, how will he and Martin respond? Tune in for some sober responses to harsh criticisms and concerns about therapy expressed by readers of Dr. Howes' blog for Psychology Today called "In Therapy."

    Martin and Dr. Howes address questions such as: Is seeing a therapist just "paid friendship"? How common is it to develop romantic feelings (a.k.a. "erotic transference") for your therapist? Does therapy ever end well?

    Dr. Howes discusses the need for therapists to better market and promote the profession, including his inspiration to found National Psychotherapy Day and start the Moments of Meaning psychotherapy storytelling campaign.

    Bonus: Dr. Howes and Martin pay tribute to the cinematic accomplishments of the wildly underappreciated actor, Emilio Estevez.

    Psychiatric survivor Emily Sheera Cutler joins Martin on Episode 18 to discuss her repeated traumatization by healthcare providers. Strip searched, over-medicated, and confined against her will on the eve of her college graduation, Emily shares the experiences that have inspired the founding of Southern California Against Forced Treatment (SCAFT). She and Martin also discuss the lesser known (and darker) details of the widely championed piece of legislation known as The Murphy Bill, an unpleasant course of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and the delicate ways that language can lead people seeking mental health services to suffer violations of their civil rights.
