Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Author Mark Borg Jr., PhD. Many of us encounter the same challenges over and over, even when our circumstances change. Perhaps we find ourselves having similar relationship problems with every partner we choose, feeling isolated no matter who we are surrounded by, or internalizing a sense of failure no matter how many successes we accumulate. If ‘crazy' is doing the same thing while expecting different results, it seems that many of us are unwittingly engaging in crazy behavior. Of course, most of us do not want to admit to our own craziness. But, what if, by confronting and understanding our unhelpful behavior, we can learn how to embrace healthy and fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others? Offering relatable case studies and revealing exercises for self-reflection, Mark Borg Jr. PhD helps us recover the lost parts of ourselves so that we can embrace new levels of self-acceptance and a deeper connection with others. Borg, a psychoanalyst practicing in NYC and a community and clinical psychologist, is a supervisor at the William Alanson White Institute. Kathryn also interviews Author Lorene Cary MA. From cherished memories of weekends she spent as a child with her indulgent Nana to the reality of the year she spent ‘ladysitting' her now frail grandmother, Lorene Cary journeys through stories of their time together and five generations of their African American family. Brilliantly weaving a narrative of her complicated yet transformative relationship with Nana?a fierce, stubborn, and independent woman, who managed a business until she was 100?Cary looks at Nana’s impulse to control people and fate, from the early death of her mother and oppression in the Jim Crow South to living on her own in her NJ home. Cary, a senior lecturer at U Penn, author of two memoirs and three novels, has written for Time and Newsweek and been featured in O, the Oprah Magazine.
