We’re very pleased to annouce our new podcast series Wise Counsel , hosted by David Van Nuys, Ph.D.

Each episode of Wise Counsel will feature an audio interview with one or more interesting people involved with mental health and wellness, either professionally as counselors, therapists, physicians or researchers, or personally, as patients or family members of patients.


In order to make it easy to listen to Wise Counsel and keep each episode straight, we have created a new Wise Counsel Weblog . Each entry in this new weblog will be devoted to a single podcast episode. Each entry will describe a podcast episode and also offer an embedded audio player so that you easily can listen to the podcast online. A comments section, located at the bottom of the weblog pages, enables anyone who wants to to comment on what they have heard.

Our first episode, featuring a conversation with Dr. John Drimmer of UCLA on Positive Psychology has been posted to the new Wise Counsel Weblog and is ready to be listened to now.
