Shrink2Shrink's podcast

Like Siskel and Ebert with a psych twist.  Each month, 2 therapists use a movie (clips included) to explore the human condition. Using the movie characters and the content, two therapists discuss relationships, mental health and share insights that we can all use in our own lives and we learn from the movies!

Shrink2Shrink podcast – Like Siskel & Ebert, with a psychological twist!  


On this episode of @Shrink2Shrink we psychologically dismantle the 2015 movie Creed.  Here, our 2 shrinks Dr. Colleen Mullen and Courtney Calkins  discuss themes from the movie and explore what we can learn for our own lives using the themes of the film: family ties, what makes a family, and how Adonis Creed makes sense of being born to the incredible Apollo Creed – he never knew his father, but he has the same passion for boxing as his father.  We also explore how living with a legend in the family can be something that can open doors for us, but can also be something we want to keep hidden. Then, we get to reminisce about our love for the icon of Rocky Balboa as a cultural icon and the spark that the stories ignite in each one of us and why.  What is it about his achievements, his love of both boxing and Adrian (“Yo, Adrian!”) that inspire us?  Listen in as we examine love, relationships, loneliness, overcoming obstacles, resiliency and following your passions.


Next Shrink2Shrink podcast will examine the movie Zootopia
