An entire show dedicated to breaking down and dealing with the unhelpful/critical thoughts we have about ourselves (cognitive distortions). Psychotherapist Catherine Drury guides us through seven different distortions with the help of chuckle-inducing examples from some of our favorite anxious/depressed folks from comedy television: Leslie Knope, Bojack Horseman, George Costanza, among others.
