Goldberg's weekly program makes us proud of the mental health profession

'translating' important and at times difficult concepts into common-day
language. And she does it in a friendly and down-to-earth
manner. We have recommended her program to our mental health
counseling students; their reactions have been most positive. A
benefit for the general public, regardless of ethnic background or
economic status. We only lament that she is not yet on national

psychologist. Dr. David Trueman really was an effective
guest. He offered practical, insightful information.
Actually, I picked up a tip or two." "Every time your guest referred to the victim he always

because I believe you are one of the few professionals."

interesting to hear different views about depression."
"I finally got to watch the show
and it is really terrific. Tonight's show was on depression, and
it covered all the bases in 1/2 an hour, including meds, psychotherapy,
causes, incidence, etc. One really new fact was that 40 % of women
on oral contraceptives experience depression as a side effect.
This is something I have been coming across frequently in my clinical
psychology practice, but wasn't aware of this statistic. Try to

more 'I saw you on television!' phone calls than I have received
following appearances on national television. Simply stated, this
wonderful show has a regular following that continues."

interviewed before the camera. Patients and colleagues viewed the
program where I was a guest and commented about the high quality and
informative nature of the show. I also received a number of
inquiries from community members regarding the show."

rave reviews from many people who watch."

topic at hand is of benefit and interest to the community we all
serve. She focused particularly on the manner in which an ordinary
person of my age was able to train for and carry out such a physically
demanding activity (bicycling around the world) as an example of
successful 'active aging.' She also asked me, as a psychologist,
for insights into how we managed to handle stress under difficult
conditions. The mental, emotional, and social skills which were
required for such an undertaking, and the benefits of ongoing exercise
and good nutrition as one ages, were the themes she explored with me,
