Hosts Dr. Janelle S. Peifer, Ph.D., and Brandon Kyle Goodman interview the In Treatment showrunner’s assistant David Sigurani and get into week 2. In Dr. Brooke’s second week with her new patients we start to see how difficult it is to open the box of deeper issues that make her patients uncomfortable. The hosts unpack why some patients avoid triggering topics in therapy and the risk of pushing patients to go deeper when some issues are locked away for a reason. This podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.
