Session 201: Vetting Your Relationship Advice

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
Dr. Donna Oriowo, M.Ed, MSW, CST joins me again this week to discuss the rise in self proclaimed "relationship experts" and why we should be careful in selecting who we listen to. We chatted about who gets the privilege of amassing large platforms to "teach" Black women about what they need to do to be in relationships, why these teachings are often dangerous and damaging, how to disconnect our sense of worth from our relationship status, and why you are the only one who can ever be an expert on your relationship.
