On Episode 18 of the Baltimore Annapolis Psychotherapy Podcast Laura Reagan, LCSW-C was privileged to have the opportunity to speak with someone who is sharp, self deprecating, and so dedicated to the field of psychology. Steven Brownlow, PhD, developed ADEPT Psychology and in this interview he explains what it is, how he came up with it, and how it helps psychotherapists and clients. Listen in for a fascinating conversation about how Dr. Brownlow developed his theory and how he coaches therapists in use of self in their work with clients.
You’ll hear a discussion of how emotions are built on the stress system of the body and why traumatic or deeply painful experiences in which we’re unable to regulate our emotions make us feel stuck. Dr. Brownlow describes the process by which micro-ruptures in relationship with caregivers can lead to a child’s belief that he or she is unworthy of love and how that affects our relationships over the lifespan.
He talks about why therapists can’t take people where they haven't been. He explains how therapists can change the world and explains research findings on what makes a great therapist. He talks about emotional processing in a way you never learned in school.
Dr. Brownlow discusses how he teaches therapists to use ADEPT Psychology to get out of their own way, and to get out of their clients’ way to deliver services effectively addressing the reason clients really show up in our offices. Listen in on this fascinating conversation!
