Profs & Pints: Understanding Therapy
Profs and Pints presents: Understanding Therapy, a guide to how to find psychological help and get the most from it, with Jeremy Steglitz, clinical psychologist in Washington DC and former teaching fellow at Northwestern and Yale.

'Tis the season to wonder if therapy might be a good idea. With the holidays and winter approaching, its not uncommon for people to feel especially off. On the whole, anxiety and depression have been on the riseespecially among millennials in urban areas like DCwith burnout, financial stress, social media, loneliness, and even noise pollution being just a few contributing factors.

But finding a therapist in a place like metro Washington DC can be challenging. The process often brings up questions and concerns that aren't widely discussed outside a therapist's office, creating a catch-22 for those who have not found a therapist already. Regardless of whether you think you might benefit from therapy or you are just trying to guide someone you know who might need help, you'll benefit from this introductory talk about therapists and the therapy process.

Drawing from the research literature and his own experiences, Jeremy Steglitz will tackle many of the common questions that patients have, such as:  Is my therapist right for me? What am I supposed to share in therapy? How do I know if therapy is working? He will suggest ways to decide if a therapist is good fit, and demystify the types of psychotherapies out there, discussing whether it matters what type a patient chooses. He'll also talk about what a typical session looks like, and how to think about therapy success and when and how therapy should end.

You'll walk out a better-informed consumer, and better able to seek help for yourself or advise others on how to get it.  (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, save $2 with a student ID. Listed time is for doors. Talk starts 30 minutes later. Please allow yourself time to place any orders and get seated and settled in.)
