Fresh on the heels of Hurricane Florence, our panel of Shrinks are discussing the psychology of natural disasters.

In this episode, our Shrinks discuss the public interest of disaster coverage in the media, a voyeuristic nature of watching others, and trauma that ensues after natural disasters.

  “Every now and then the world reminds us how miniscule and small we are.”

– Jonathan Hetterly, LPC

Being Human

In our Being Human segment, the Shrink Tank Podcast panelists discuss some of the latest findings on psychology in the news.

Common Sense Media has released a new study regarding social media use amongst teenagers. The report states that teenagers who are constantly checking social media say that it has a positive effect on their lives—including higher reports of confidence, fewer reports of loneliness and depression.

Our panel of Shrinks discusses this research and mental health and wellbeing in teens. Read the article that inspired the discussion here.
