This week's podcast episode is a little different.I've been a member of an online book club called the Psychology Book Club for about four years and enjoyed many invigorating and eye-opening conversations as part of the group. At the beginning of the year, I took over organising the meetings, and this episode I wanted to share our latest conversation with you. The club is open to everyone and meets every other month through Skype to discuss a psychology-related book, so if you'd like to join us please come along (details on how to join below).This month's book was Getting Real: The Ten Truth Skills You Need to Live an Authentic Life by Susan Campbell Ph.D. In the conversation. Jake (my partner, who you might remember from previous podcasts) and I seemed to be the only ones around so we had an in-depth chat about the book and its ideas (please excuse the audio blips at the beginning - I think the recorder was still warming up!)As a quick summary, the 10 truth skills identified by Dr Campbell are:

  • Experiencing what is
  • Being transparent
  • Noticing your intent
  • Welcoming feedback
  • Asserting what you want and don't want
  • Taking back projections
  • Revising an earlier statement
  • Holding differences
  • Sharing mixed emotions
  • Embracing the silence

As I mention at the end of the podcast, the next book club is on 5th May at 3pm EST. We'll be talking about Six Pillars of Self Esteem by Nathaniel Branden. If you'd like to join us, please RSVP using the Facebook page link below.See you next week!
