Episode Description

Drawing upon her extensive three decades of clinical psychology experience, Dr. Beth Kurland delves into the human inclination to evade unpleasant emotions and the pressure to maintain a facade of constant happiness. Rather than succumbing to negative thoughts or attempting to ignore difficult emotions, she offers a fresh perspective in her book. By adopting six different vantage points, including the Anchor View for stability, the Child View for curiosity, the Audience View for gaining a wider perspective, the Compassionate Parent View for self-compassion, the Mirror View for accepting both strengths and flaws, and the Ocean View for embracing community, individuals can effectively shift their mindset when confronted with challenging emotions.

Women, Life and Science

Wednesday at 7 AM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

We are women, living a full life, have a professional career in science or in some form or another have been involved in the industry. We have stories to tell and knowledge to impart. We overcame challenges, uncertainties and continue to navigate the ever evolving professional and personal balance. We share in kindness and we share openly. We are grateful for many things. We have little regrets but easily forgive ourselves for our missteps. Women, Life and Science is the open forum for dialogue, knowledge presentations and story-telling.
