Like much of our culture’s pop psychology quick fixes, Dr. Phil’s counsel can leave many people feeling confused and inadequate.

In his new book Talking Back to Dr. Phil, Alternatives to Mainstream Psychology, counselor, educator and attorney David Bedrick introduces a fresh approach to addressing our disturbing feelings and behaviors, and encourages a loved-based psychology rooted in the belief that there is profound meaning in our struggles, which can be healed when compassionately reframed.

Using examples from the television show Dr. Phil, the author illustrates mainstream psychology’s tendency to shame people into thinking something is wrong with them and debunks many standard protocols and “fixes.”

ON THIS SHOW YOU’LL LEARN/TAKE AWAYS

Through the lens of a love-based psychology, we learn to:

  • Embrace our authentic selves instead of attempting to ‘fix’ ourselves
  • View humanity’s deviations from ‘the norm’ as a reflection of nature’s diversity
  • Experience the power and intelligence of our feelings
  • Recognize the larger culture’s formative role in our individual suffering
  • Transform conflict into a catalyst for building sustainable relationships
  • Accept our greatest difficulties as our strongest allies
