God Help Us

Jan 24, 2019

In this episode of God Help Us, I talk with clinical psychologist Ryan Mather about why we believe things that are not in our own best interest - Christianities that are patriarchal or homophobic, or voting in ways that don’t seem to benefit us at all. Ryan talks about attachment theory and psychological defenses as tools for understanding ourselves and others - and invites curiosity and compassion.

Ryan recommends two books by Dan Seigel: Parenting from the Inside Out and Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence as well as Nancy McWilliams’s work.
