Welcome to the Therapy Café® Podcast, a new kind of podcast for therapists and other health care professionals where we have real, deep conversations about holistic mental wellness topics. This podcast is hosted by Dr. Kathleen Tallent, licensed psychologist, and Allison Stenson, business/marketing expert/ordained minister, and includes conversations with expert clinicians, researchers, and first-hand accounts of those with lived experience of mental illness to shed light on current issues and solutions. We strive to apply psychological research to solve real-world problems and "think outside the box" when it comes to mental health to help you bring about real, lasting change in your community. Topics include engaging underserved populations, reducing the stigma of mental illness, holistic approaches, and how to care for ourselves so we can show up for clients and be our authentic selves. We’ll be bringing you these conversations every week starting in 2021. Join us for Season 1, where we focus on First Responder Mental Wellness and how to develop cultural competence when working with firefighters, police officers, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), paramedics, 911 dispatchers, and other public safety personnel.
