Americans are genuinely hurting, and they are looking for someone to speak to them and for them. In this episode of the Outrage Overload podcast, we speak with psychotherapist and author Phyllis Leavitt.
We discuss her new book, “America in Therapy” in which she describes the anger and division in American society, the importance of listening and understanding different perspectives, and the need for mental health education and awareness. Leavitt emphasizes the role of therapy in promoting healthy relationships and explores how these principles can be applied on a larger scale to heal the divides in our country.
Leavitt offers insights into the root causes of our country’s problems and provides practical advice on how we can heal the divides.
If you’re looking for a way to understand the challenges facing America and what you can do to help, this episode is for you.
