Forging Mettle podcast: stories of strength, courage and perseverance.
This week we (Rob & Tara) and talk with the first adventure psychologist. A term she coined and is now writing the book on the topic. We discuss ideas that fit well in the forge. Have we become too soft? How does adventure, fun, challenge and awe improve our wellbeing? What mode are you currently in? Surviving, coping or thriving? What is adventure psychology? Enjoy this very unique discussion with a lovely guest.
