Our aim at Connecte is to bring the science of Psychology to everyone. Why? Because it’s fascinating and oh so helpful! Psychology is the science of how that little machine in our head “the mind” works and how it connects to our body and everything around us. With our solid research backgrounds, keen curiosity about how people work and our experience in multiple domains of psychology including Clinical, Social, Health, Community and Positive Psychology our aim is to cut through the hype that’s out there to bring the best science-based principles to you.

So, once a month we will update our “picks” for you to explore what we think is great out there in psychology. Don’t forget to refresh once a month!
In her book “Maybe you should talk to someone”, Dr. Lori Gottlieb reflects on the process of therapy from her point of view and experiences as both the therapist and patient.
It is a candid memoir in which Gottlieb guides readers through her work exploring the inner lives of her patients as she simultaneously embarks on her own journey of self-discovery with her own therapist.
Beyond offering insight into the opposing experiences of the therapist and client, this book highlights the awesome commonality of the human condition. Whether you are a therapist, a client, someone who is curious, fearful or even skeptical of therapy or whether you are simply someone who loves to understand humans, it speaks to all!
I loved this podcast episode, Traumatology (PTSD) with Dr. Nicholas Barr, from the Ologies podcast. Host Alie Ward interviews trauma specialist Dr. Nicholas Barr, PhD, and picks his brain on all he knows about trauma. They discuss everything from what is trauma, how does it work in the brain, do treatments for trauma work, can practicing mindfulness help trauma, what can you do if you can’t afford treatment, and can you be affected by trauma you don't remember? This episode left me feeling not only more informed about trauma, but also more hopeful about our ability to treat trauma and inspired by the resiliency of humans.
