Session 62: Lessons from the Red Table

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

This week’s episode was inspired by one of my new favorite things to watch online, Red Table Talk. The episodes feature Jada Pinkett Smith, along with her mother and daughter for refreshingly honest conversations from an intergenerational perspective. You should definitely check it out! My favorite episode so far has been the one that featured a conversation between Jada and Gabrielle Union about this weird tension that existed between them for years. This conversation highlighted an issue that I think comes up for a lot of us, what happens when we’re intimidated in some way? I shared 3 questions to help you figure this out for yourself and also answered a couple of On the Porch questions about dealing with a new psychiatric diagnosis and how to handle conflict with friends.
