session 156: Managing Loneliness

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.

Our favorite friendship researcher, Dr. Marisa G. Franco is back with us this week to chat about managing loneliness. Dr. Franco and I chatted about the 3 different types of loneliness, how to tell if we’re struggling with loneliness, and tips for overcoming loneliness.
