  • How have children experienced this year's challenges, and how can we get better at talking with them about race and racism? Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith joins Forrest to explore trauma, resilience, and effective coping, and particularly the unique challenges experienced by young people and their parents.

  • On today’s episode of @beingwellpodcast, Forrest and I explore how we maintain contentment, calm, or inner peace, while still aiming high, pursuing good goals, and experiencing natural frustration and anger. We also take a look at some provocative questions, like is contentment even a good goal when there's so much injustice out in the world?

  • What can we do to achieve the ‘holy grail’ of personal growth – lasting change in our hearts, minds, and behaviors? How can we change the brain for good? That’s the focus of this episode: a full primer on the science of ‘positive neuroplasticity,’ including a lot of practical advice on how we can take control of our brain’s growth over time.

  • What are the consequences of growing up inside an abusive family, and what can we do as adults to heal old wounds? Today Forrest and I are joined by Pete Walker, a practicing therapist and expert in Complex PTSD.

  • What makes for a great team – whether personal or professional – and how can organizations and individuals create a more psychologically healthy environment? To help us answer that question, today Forrest and I are joined by one of the world’s leading scholars on what helps organizations learn and thrive: Dr. Amy Edmondson.
