Wanted: A self-help and peer approach to “Mental Health Recovery” that can be done by yourself or with peers, and that focuses on building your own positive personal strategies for daily growth and overcoming stress and trauma. My guest Mary Ellen Copeland PhD describes the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP).
In this hour, I share what I've learned about how to live a good life. I put my heart and soul into this in the hope it may inspire you in your life.
I really like this hour. My guests Katherine Douthit, PhD, LMHC and Tom Christiansen, LMHC work with elderly and dementia patients. I start out with what it's like for me to be 76 years old and we go on from there to talk about older persons from multiple perspectives including agist prejudices, and their needs for autonomy and love.
