What Would Dr.Meyers Do: Insights not Oversights or the WWDMD Podcast (2)

Have you ever wondered what clinicians and social workers are REALLY thinking and feeling as they help others navigate their lives? This podcast is all about learning: about the dynamics of a clinical case; the emotional journey of the clinician; and YOU. My guests and I will talk about our challenges, questions, and anxieties about the work as well as our own personal histories as we strive to understand others and ourselves. You will have the opportunity to be that fly on the wall - and - along the way, you will become more curious and gain more insight about YOU: why you do the things you do, feel the way you do, and move through life the way you do.
