Posted on May 22, 2018
Podcasters: Matt Bennett, Curt Mower, & Dr. Jerry Yager
It is too easy to see ourselves and those we work with as isolated individuals. When we look at any person in isolation, we miss not only the bigger picture but some of the most important drivers of behavior, mental, and medical health. In this episode, Matt, Curt, and Jerry examine the research on social networks and what it means for our services and ideas about self-care.
- How are the social networks of those you work with influencing their health and behaviors in negative ways?
- Could changing social networks improve the well-being of the people you work with? If so how can you approach this topic?
- How do we need to adjust our assumptions or strategies considering this research on social networks?
