Socratic Questioning Examples: Podcast 053

This podcast is the narrated version of my article Socratic Questioning in Depression Therapy.

Here are three ways to cut through a client’s negative rumination and ask healing antidepressant questions.

In this episode I talk about:

  • Learning to live and love again
  • The change
  • Socratic questioning: Teaching by asking instead of telling
  • Socrates and the art of happy discovery
  • Does your idea apply in all contexts, and if not, why not?
  • “Is it possible…?”
  • Are there any other possible reasons?
  • What’s the evidence?
  • Fair and square
