Harry Potter and the Two Therapists

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-5pvde-bced13

Welcome back to Through the Eyes of a Therapist Podcast!  This season is all about pop-culture and the unique view of shows, books, and movies through a therapist’s point of view!  

In this episode we have returning guest/co-host, Elisa D.  She is an LMSW who specializes in childhood trauma and works with victims of crime.  This lens allows her to talk with me about Harry Potter’s early childhood experiences.  We cover complex trauma, resilience, early childhood development, and adverse experiences.  

As mentioned in the episode: if you have had any bad experiences with Snape-like teachers, we want to hear about them!  Please write to hello@throughtheeyesofatherapist.org

I will be going on maternity leave in a couple of weeks, but will still be publishing episodes at least once per month!  Thank you for your patience with me and this child who is due in mid-September 2019!

See you for the next episode about 13 Reasons Why!
