The Roots of the Book with Sarah Cassidy

Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 5 Episode 24 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here. 

P-Soupers, we're continuing our chat with Dr Sarah Cassidy who is an educational, child and adolescent psychologist. She's also the co-author of an extraordinary book, Tired of Anxiety, A Kid's Guide to Befriending Difficult Thoughts and Feelings and Living Your Life Anyway.

In this episode we learn about the behavioural roots of the book - you'll hear how Sarah discovered relational frame theory (RFT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) - and how she's using ACT to support her staff, using a training protocol developed by me and my mate, Paul Flaxman #flaxybabes #flaxintosh. We also hear Sarah's views on labels and her song choice.

People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun to help you glow to work a bit more often.

Another first for Season 5 is that I'm adding a transcript, wherever possible. There is a caveat - this transcript is largely generated by Artificial Intelligence, I have corrected many errors but I won't have captured them all! You can find the transcript by clicking on the three dots at the bottom left of the box below and selecting transcript.

You'll also find the shownotes, including all the useful links by clicking on Notes in the box below.
