For our 100th episode, tune in for a review of favorite audience episodes and back stories about the evolution of Therapist Uncensored with co-hosts Ann Kelley and Sue Marriott.  This is a show hosted by 2 therapists who share the most usable science on attachment relationships psychotherapy and trauma.  It combines both host lead conversations and interviews with top experts in the the respective fields - neuroscience, therapists, academic researchers, musicians and pop-culture celebrities that share their wisdom about relationships.
What if we flipped the script and learned to see our body as a messenger that needs to be heard rather than an obstacle to be conquered when it comes to our relationship with food? When we take physiological perspective, we learn that the body has much to say not only about food but also emotional regulation and our basic human needs for attachment and defense.
Dive deeper into this new (to us) model of interpreting attachment science and discover how to apply it in your daily life.  Sue Marriott LCSW, CGP and Ann Kelley PhD have fun breaking down the last two episodes where Dr. Patricia Crittenden so generously shared her strategies of adaptation model, called the Dynamic Maturational Model (DMM).  Focus is on personal and clinical importance in this last of a 3-part series on the DMM.
A unique perspective in the treatment and assessment of attachment injuries, the DMM is explained in detail right here! Dr. Patricia Crittenden shares her model, the Dynamic Maturational Model of Attachment and Adaptation, and uses her rich international background to deepen our understanding of culture and context on self-survival strategies.

Want a totally free, no-hangover naturally produced cuddle-drug?Oxytocin provides a boost of the best bonding drug possible and is the natural love drug our bodies make at key relational moments such as child-birth, nursing, orgasm and falling in love.  In this episode we discuss how to create this moral molecule without even needing complicated human relationships by connecting mutually to our companion pets.  What's not to love about that?
The science of relaxing into love....this episode continues the exploration of Polyvagal Theory by bringing it to life through discussion and real-life examples.  Sue Marriott and Ann Kelley continue to break down one of the most important theories of our generation when it comes to trauma and psychological treatment.
We are excited to bring you Dr. Stephen Porges, the award-winning neuroscientist who proposed the Polyvagal Theory. This theory uses neuroscience and physiopsychology to explain mechanisms in the brain that create symptoms we call psychological disturbances. PVT has stimulated research & treatment emphasizing the importance of biology, the body, and behavioral regulation. It's not just for our brains, it's for our hearts!
Learn 3 distinct features that make one vulnerable to addiction and understand the varied dynamics through the lens of attachment with guests Brad Kennedy and Dr. Vanessa Kennedy. By getting curious about our behaviors and understanding why we do what we do, we can begin shifting our narrative from one of shame to one of compassion.
Have you ever just sat back and observed a small child as they learn something new?  There is this profound sense of awe and wonder with each new discovery they make.  Kids are naturally curious.  As adults, we tend to take what we know about the world for granted. But, through the eyes of a child, the world is an exciting mystery just waiting to be discovered!  What if we told you that it is possible to experience that childlike curiosity in your day-to-day life, starting right now? What if we also told you that curiosity is one of the most powerful relationship tools we have?  Curiosity is much more than a quest for knowledge and is not as simple as it seems.

Full disclosure I did not listen to this whole episode. I shut it off about 20 minutes because I was so frustrated with the way Dr. Brown defines complex trauma. It seems to me that he has a very high standard for what he calls complex trauma, particularly that it must come with all these severe comorbidities. Not only does this make no logical sense to me, it's incredibly frustrating as someone without those comorbidities who is still very much affected by childhood trauma. CPTSD is the only term available at this time to help people like me assert the validity of our particular type of trauma in the face of a culture that insists trauma must be related to some single horrendous event rather than a period of disruptive experiences in early childhood. It frustrates me to see Dr. Brown so callously take that away. I'm sure there is a way to discuss the intersection of CPTSD and other comorbidities and how attachment may come up without effectively invalidating a huge portion of CPTSD patients.

this is making me dizzy. to hear sophisticated conversations lacking the primal integer that obviously keeps the ball bouncing is truly heartbreaking. its easy... anything you don't know is difficult. therefore when any introduction has passed but the journey continues the choice is apparent. that is Choice. So publicly televising early initiations that for some have easily been set aside to focus on the Good. You now get an older version that is giving the option to choose again. consequently there is only so much a person can process when handling situations that initially has been avoided for a more advantageous manner. now you have practice on practice on practice of an overloaded society to choose with pressures of instant messaging or be determined incompetent. you shouldn't allow the opinions by societies managers to determine what most people overcome as a child and that is the basic survival traditions that are passed down with as much freedom as allowed. quick answer is Be Grateful you survived or that you are alive or you will just plant the seed of another's opportunity to choose death. thank you
