The Hardcore Self Help Podcast with Duff the Psych

This is a podcast dedicated to answering your questions about mental health, anxiety, depression, relationships, sex, and life WITHOUT psychobabble BS. I am Dr. Robert Duff, a psychologist from Southern California, but I'm also a regular dude who legitimately wants to help out. I wrote the best selling books Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression and Hardcore Self Help: F**K Anxiety. Those are available at http://hardcoreselfhelp.com

In this episode, I do something a bit different. Earlier today (9/27/16) I gave a professional talk to a group of people about dementia. The point of my talk was to give them a thorough understanding of dementia in general and to describe some of the specific types that you might encounter. This episode is a little more straight forward and informational than my other shows, but if you are interested in sitting through a 1-hour crash course with me, I encourage you to have a listen!

Hello, friends! As always thank you for continuing to supply me with a wealth of super awesome, honest, and candid questions. Today is no exception. I cover three really great listener questions in depth. I need your feedback! What topics would you like me to cover in my future "deep dive" episodes? 

Here are the questions for this episode:

  • Should I be worried about the critical voice in my head and what can I do about my crippling anxiety?
  • How can I get over a break up when there is money involved?
  • Does this count as emotional abuse? What should I do about it?

As always you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com or on twitter at http://twitter.com/duffthepsych

I really enjoyed the variety of questions in this episode. Please keep sending me in such awesome questions because they keep the show fresh and interesting. This is your show too! 

I share a little secret about the Audible Trial in this episode, so head by http://audibletrial.com/duff to put it to good use. 

Here are the questions that I cover:

  • As a man, what can I do to better deal with my anorexic tendencies?
  • What should I do when I can't handle hearing the emotional burden from my friends because it drains me and gets me worked up?
  • Should I be worried about my 4-year-old's imaginary friends when there is a family history of schizophrenia?
