This week on the podcast we're chatting with licensed psychotherapist, podcast host, and writer Todd S. Baratz about all manner of things sexual and relational! We discuss:

• The pitfalls of toxic positivity

• The genesis and problematic nature of therapists who pathologize everything (don't worry; Todd doesn't do that)

• Things our society can do to shift toward a kinder, more empathetic way of being

• The pros and cons of using the word "healing" in a therapeutic context

• The challenges of maintaining healthy interpersonal and romantic relationships during a global pandemic

• Becoming comfortable with one's sexual preferences

Please excuse the thumping throughout, as Todd's pup was very excited and was overcome with a case of "happy tail" outside the room Todd was recording in!
