The last few years have been… a lot. When saccharine self-care advice doesn’t cut it, it’s time to get real and ask WTF happened, and were do we go from here? Dr. Christine B. Whelan offers sassy, truth-telling and research-based guidance for how to embrace the journey ahead with purpose, resilience … and sometimes a judiciously used obscenity when life doesn’t go according to plan. Dr. Whelan, a clinical professor in the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, has studied the self-improvement industry for nearly two decades. Your real-talk roadmap to the good life begins here!
