Working: The "How Does a Psychotherapist Work?" Edition

This season on Working, we’re speaking to individuals employed in fields potentially imperiled by the Trump presidency. These are the stories of people doing difficult but important jobs—jobs that may get much more difficult and much more important in the years ahead.

Shane'a Thomas helps LGBTQ youth work through depression, anxiety, and other mental illness. She spoke to Jacob Brogan about a typical day of sessions, how she helps patients get what they want out of their therapy, and how the recent political climate is affecting her work.

Then, in a Slate Plus extra, Thomas tells us how she feels about armchair attempts to "diagnose" Donald Trump from afar. If you’re a member, enjoy bonus segments and interview transcripts from Working, plus other great podcast exclusives. Start your two-week free trial at slate.com/workingplus.
