EP.197 The Self-Talk Workout with Dr. Rachel GoldSmith Turow, PhD, Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Mindfulness Teacher, Author

Self-talk matters, but what methods of building healthy self-talk actually work? 

In The Self-Talk Workout, Dr Rachel Goldsmith Turow, PhD, Psychologist and Mindfulness Teacher, shares evidence-based techniques to go from being your own worst critic to your own best friend.

Perhaps you want to be nicer to yourself but don’t really know how to get there.

Or maybe you’re someone who assumes self-criticism is a permanent part of your personality.

Rest assured you’re not alone-millions of people struggle with the toll that excessive self-criticism takes on their mind, energy levels, jobs, and relationships.

Problems with self-talk vary dramatically from one person to the next: they can appear as mild but persistent inner criticism, full-blown self-loathing, or the pain of internalised oppression or abuse.

After over twenty years of working with individuals, groups, and classes on self-criticism and related challenges, psychologist and mindfulness teacher Dr. Rachel Goldsmith Turow, PhD offers “the self-talk workout” and doable exercises that can help you replace self-criticism with self-kindness and self-encouragement.

Specific self-talk strategies such as “Spot the success”, and “Allowing all feelings, skilfully,” require just a few minutes a day.

These skills can be practiced individually to transform your self-talk, or you can choose to combine two or more exercises to enhance your self-talk workout.

In The Self-Talk Workout, Dr. Rachel Goldsmith Turow, PhD also shares examples from her own life and experiences as a psychotherapist.

Rachel Turow was born in San Francisco, California, and grew up in the Bay Area.

After completing a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Oregon, a clinical internship at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Dr. Turow worked as a supervising psychologist and research scientist at Rush University Medical Center.

Dr. Turow has adapted mindfulness-based treatment protocols for patients with post traumatic stress and depression, and has developed preventive programs to enhance students resilience and well-being.

Dr. Turow is a frequent speaker on topics relating to stress, trauma, mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy, and self-compassion.
