S05 E08 - Unorthodocs: A Different Approach to Wellbeing
Show Notes

In this episode we speak to Dr J. J. Kelly, of 'Unorthdocs Inc.', about how she has taught young people to have the skills to love themselves. 
We discuss J. J.'s use of dialectical behavioural therapy to help people build the skills they need to support themselves.  We touch on some of the unique approaches she uses in her own work, such as mentoring and a focus on values, and consider how these can be applied in schools.
