On Addiction and Social Media with David Schiesher

CATEGORY: VIDEOS/PODCASTS

Today Currently Wearing Presents David Schiesher.

David is an American Clinical Social Worker practicing individual and couples therapy in Geneva.  His peaceful and calm energy transforms the atmosphere in his sessions and believe me, I know what I am talking about. He guided me through several challenging periods in my life: going through a divorce and dealing with an eating disorder.

What I like about his methods is that they make you realize the root of your problem. And once you can see it, you can heal. For me, it was revolutionary to start seeing my self-destructive behavior in a new light and let go of it.

I decided to divide this interview into two parts otherwise it would be too long. I mean, I love listening to podcasts and watch video interviews, but as a busy, working mother, my time is limited. 30-40 minutes is maximum.

In the first part, that you can listen to today, we discuss four methods that David uses in his practice and how to help a partner/ family member or a friend that suffers from an addiction.

In the second part, we will talk about intimate relationships: how to build one, nourish it and deal with issues that may (and will) arise along the way.

    social media is a big responsibity so to me we need to be responsible with what we put out there and what we absord as a person as well. we have to set limits and boundaries no matter what.

    RCA (root cause analysis), I agree that this is one of the best way solving many problems. Social media is quite addictive and without discipline and guidance, the effects could be worse. This is a very informative post.

    Cannot wait until part 2. I agree with him on the whole social media problem. I hate when I see kids who are so young and they have their own phone. There’s no reason for it. There are so many inappropriate things on the internet for them to see.
