Hello, Jedi Counsel listeners! In this episode, we talked about some of our favorite moments from the Netflix series Queer Eye and how they map on to concepts in the field of psychology. We talked about advice given in the show that is consistent with principles of behavioral activation for depression, exposure for social anxiety, oppose-to-emotion action from dialectical behavior therapy, and acting “as if” and reframing unhelpful thoughts in cognitive-behavioral therapy. Overall, the show is sweet, heartwarming, and funny. We hope you enjoy our discussion of it – let us know what the show has meant to you!
