hello,

This real play is like stepping into a therapy room with Dr. Diana Hill. Diana demonstrates how to view your problems as an interconnected network of biological, sociocultural, and psychological factors. The DSM is limited when it comes to looking at the complexity of human beings. It lacks individualization, tends to medicalize your problems, overemphasizes symptom reduction, and does not guide well which direction to go. Instead, you can explore the many factors that interact to create your problems so that you can intervene more effectively. Diana walks you through how to do this yourself.

Listen and Learn:

  • What does it mean to take a bio-psycho-social approach?
  • Why jumping off a phone book is different than stepping off a phone book
  • How you can use curiosity and network modeling to gain a better perspective on your problems
  • Biological factors that impact your mental health
  • 6 core psychological factors that may relate to your problem
  • How to use embody your “brave self”
  • The power of context in shaping our behaviors
  • The basics of network modeling
