The Reluctant Therapist: Balancing the need for news with our mental health

In an effort to stay informed many of us may be consuming more news than our mind can process. As the 24/7 news cycle has grown, so have the incidents of anxiety, depression and panic in the general public. Host Elizabeth Barrett welcomes journalism professor Kim Bisheff. In addition to her teaching, she is an award-winning author and expert on the spread of misinformation through social networks. Barrett and Bisheff tackle a question increasingly on our minds: How do we protect our mental health and well-being in an age of over-stimulation?

Elizabeth Barrett is a wife, mother, licensed marriage-family therapist, educator, eavesdropper, emotion worker, and mental health consultant. She uses all of these skills to address the subjects that we all struggle with in this conversation with the Reluctant Therapist.
