The Broken Brain

The Broken Brain is a fun and informative Podcast about Psychology, Mental Health, Treatment, and all things Brain-ey. 

The Broken Brain is hosted by Dwight, often co hosted by Mike (see profiles on The Team Page), and features information about principles of therapy, profiles intriguing research and programs, and interviews therapists from around the world. The Podcast debuted on August 3, 2014, and includes an hour(ish) weekly episode, along with frequent "Podcast Minis" (shorter episodes) as well. As of our second year we have begun broadcasting some of our recording onto the BrokenBrain Podcast YouTube channel.

Current Podcasts:

Kathleen Brennan lives and practices psychotherapy in Chicago. She is an expert in trauma, a survivor of the nonprofit world, and an excellent podcaster, with her show On The Blue Couch. 

Kathleen speaks with me today about the dynamic of Vicarious Trauma, the multiple ways that we can become traumatized through our own or other's exposure. The ACA has defined Vicarious Trauma as "compassion fatigue," or "the cost of caring," and although therapists are primed for this problem, it affects all of us in some way. Give our conversation a listen to learn some of those ways, and what to do about it.
