The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves. Did you know that there’s a form of therapy called play therapy where things like toys and games are incorporated into the work. And it’s not just for kids! For this conversation, I was joined by Althea Simpson, LCSW, MBA who shared how she uses play therapy with her clients. Althea and I chatted about how play therapy works, why it’s not just playing with toys in session, how it can be used with people of all ages, and the qualifications one should have to conduct play therapy.    Resources Mentioned Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast!   Where to Find Althea http://www.brighter-day.net Instagram: @altheasimpsonbiz Unicorn Life Play Therapy Facebook Group      Join Dr. Joy & Dr. Key at The Will to Be Well If you're looking for a therapist in your area, check out the directory at https://www.therapyforblackgirls.com/directory.

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves. Last week, Dr. Mishelle and I took a deep dive into this season of Queen Sugar and this week I have a special treat for all of you anxiously anticipating the finale tonight. I had a chance to chat with the one and only Tina Lifford who portrays Aunt Vi on the show and we had an amazing conversation. We chatted about the evolution of Aunt Vi's character and how her journey mimics that of so many of us. We also chatted about giving ourselves space and time to tap into our deepest desires and she shared more about the internal work she's done to allow her to really connect with Aunt Vi's story.

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves. This season of Queen Sugar has certainly provided us with lots of drama! In today's episode we're taking a deep dive into the highs and lows we've seen in some of our favorite characters from the show. For this conversation I was joined by Licensed Psychologist, Dr. Mishelle Rodriguez. Dr. Mishelle and I chatted about what kinds of things we might address if Nova came into therapy following the release of her book, the way that we have seen many of the characters deal with big emotions this season, our thoughts about Darla and Ralph Angel seemingly reconnecting and what we’d love to see as this season wraps up.  Support Our Sponsor Join me Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 8pm/7 Central for this year's airing of Black Girls Rock!

It's Back to School time so I wanted to dig into a topic this week to hopefully help stave off a few meltdowns for both you and your kids. In today’s episode, we’re talking about how we can work to better regulate our own emotions so that we can help our kids regulate theirs. For this conversation I was joined by Dr. Ann-Louise Lockhart and we discussed what co-regulation is, how it can be useful in strengthening your relationship with your kids, how we can make sure we have enough reserves to manage our own emotions, and the important distinction between discipline and punishment.   Resources Mentioned Magination Press Books Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast!

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves. We've spent much of this summer engaging in conversations about our friendships with other sisters, and one of the main questions many of you had was "How do I make friends as an adult," so that's what we're digging into today. For this conversation I was joined by Dr. Marisa Franco. Dr. Franco and I chatted about the most important aspects of making friends, the characteristics of a good friend, and what’s needed to really sustain friendships.

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves. Earlier this month we asked you what you thought the largest threat to friendships with other Black women was, and many of you said jealousy. So I wanted to dig a little deeper into where jealousy comes from and what we can do about it when it pops up in a friendship.   If you're looking for a therapist in your area, check out the directory at https://www.therapyforblackgirls.com/directory.

This is not a new episode of Therapy for Black Girls, but I wanted to introduce you to another podcast I think you'll enjoy. On the Secret Lives of Black Women, join close friends Charla Lauriston and Lauren Domino on their hunt for the ‘secrets’ that have helped black women flourish through the BS. They connect with guests over shared experiences by wading through everything from sex and self-care to rage and anxiety. Each conversation centers on creating a space for joy with some newfound besties while asking: how do the black women we admire stay incredibly phenomenal? The Secret Lives of Black Women is out NOW! Listen wherever you get your podcasts.

Makena Makandi Fighting depression one needs to let go the things that are dragging and causing you pain and guilt in your heart accepting who you are and believing in your self. Remain positive

Makena Makandi I think there is no specific solution to depression. I think it's more of a personalize solution based on what coping mechanism works best for you.

This is me. So very true. I'm glad I can identify this problem now. The "natural genius" is me. It's so easy to do things it feels like I didn't earn it.

I truly think that the competition and urge to be the perfect mom comes from 1. seeing our mothers do it all but never truly seeing the negative aspects of keeping up with doing it all, because you know we love to put in a front and break down in a closet/car or 2. If our mothers didn't do what we felt needed to be done as a parent we decide we are going to get it right, not realizing that what our parents did was the best They CLD do and in turn we overcompensate. And put on a Front. And break down in the closet/car lmao

Oh my gosh I was so overwhelmed with breastfeeding! Everything she said was spot on for me..stressed because the milk was not coming in, thinking my child was not getting enough and feeling like a complete and total failure. Thankfully the lactation nurse at my child's pediatrician offered suggestions and within a day of following her suggestion I got results. It was SUCH a relief. Thank you for sharing ALL of these thoughts that were very real for me. #representationmatters #weMUSTshareourstories
