There's somebody living in your bathroom mirror--somebody who greets you rudely every morning, who criticizes you every time you fall short of perfect--somebody who may have been helpful to you at some point in your life but who may now be causing serious harm to your personal success and relationships. The Inner Critic is one of the inner selves that Hal and Sidra Stone have identified through decades of Voice Dialogue therapy; and it can be a very destructive voice unless we learn how to identify and deal with it. Here they tell us the differences between men and women in this regard; how to recognize and understand the Inner Critic; and most of all how to integrate it in a constructive, healing way. "If it's at your service instead of against you," says Sidra, "it gives you a tremendous amount of power." (hosted by Michael Toms)


Sidra & Hal Stone have taught together, both nationally and internationally on the subjects of Voice Dialogue, relationship and the selves, and the psychology of the aware ego.
