14 Feb Being Well Podcast: Integration: How to Solve Most of Your Problems
On today’s episode of the Being Well Podcast, Forrest and I discuss the fundamental strategies that allow us to become aware of and integrate all parts of ourselves – those we want to celebrate and expand, and those we’d like to heal and change to help us solve most of our problems.
We explore a lot of big ideas on this show, and alongside them a lot of specific tactics and frameworks that can support people in growing and changing for the better. This includes everything from how to get the most out of therapy, how to deal with traumatic experiences, and how to manage a variety of psychological conditions and individual tendencies. There’s a question that underlies all of these domains: how does personal healing actually work?
