Some of today’s most popular TV shows, books, TED Talks, and podcasts not only feature therapists, but also real-life therapy clients willing to share their stories. Therapists are also finding large audiences on social media. This has no doubt been part of the rising popularity of therapy, but it’s also led us to ask important questions about the role of us as therapists in larger societal conversations.

At this important juncture in the history of psychotherapy, a few therapists are leading the way into Hollywood and the media world and have learned important lessons along the way. In this recorded session, you’ll view a lively discussion on what’s happening in the media around therapy and how more therapists can take advantage of this newfound platform for their work. You’ll explore:

  • How media is changing therapy and how therapists can change the media
  • How to take therapy out of therapy room and make it accessible to the general public
  • How to normalize the therapeutic process by using media to make emotional health part of the national conversation
