This episode is an intro into Psychodrama with one of my favorite clinicians I’ve ever met, Stephanie Coker LCSW LCDC CDWF. Psychodrama is a therapeutic approach that allows the client to physically engage in the counseling process. Stephanie gives us a great introduction on what Psychodrama is, how her background in improv influenced her work, and the benefits of this approach.

I want you to think of the first word that comes to mind when you hear “addiction.” What was it? Junkie. Drunk. Bum. Waste. Pain.
Unless you have some personal history or an awareness of the community, usually the word “addiction” is followed by something negative. But, for some reason, we don’t have the same sentiments when it comes to other chronic diseases such as diabetes or cancer.
This episode is an introduction into the world of addiction and how it is perceived by society. Please know that we could spend multiple episodes on this topic alone so we this will definitely be something we come back to. In the meantime, please send me any questions you have in regards to addiction at ChubbyTherapyPod@gmail.com.
Also, this episode introduces my new segment called Analyze My Meme! Below is the first one:
I found this on social media and am asking you a huge favor to help me gather more pictures, memes, inspirational posts that you want me to therapeutically analyze. Email them to me with the subject line #AMM.
Great to be back, I hope you’re enjoying the new format and we have some special episodes coming up this month so stay tuned. And remember to feed your mental health!
