    There are some who get some of this training! I am in my third year of a psy.d program and am writing my clinical research project on the application of emotion focused work to adolescents in the context of the age of social media. Empathy, experiential, and moment-to-moment work is essential for the training of new psychologists in the digital 2.0 age. I liked how your conversation turned to the internal experience of early career/psychologists-in-training. Don’t you think the supervision process should include a self-exploration component? My program, for one, does not even offer health insurance to cover therapy costs. I think being a patient should be a requirement of the therapy training process! What are y’alls’ thoughts about smartphones and social networking sites’ effects on adolescent emotional development?

    This podcast saved me and helped me all of my feelings into words. I was doing this on my own I’m happy to hear I’ve been doing the right thing. I was in a dark place til I heard this.

    I noticed your page’s ranking in google’s search results is very low.
    You are loosing a lot of traffic. You need high PR backlinks to rank in top10.
    I know – buying them is too expensive. It is better
    to own them. I know how to do that, simply google it:
