Please let me know how I can obtain a hard copy of the segment "Philosophy as Therapy" that aired on "To the Best of Our Knowledge" on Sunday morning, June 7, 2015. Thank you!

Anne Strainchamps expressed surprise that someone might receive therapy from a philosopher. As a licensed therapist I can tell you that most of what we do is based in philosophy. A therapist is a trip guide in a person's trip through life. Most of us are required to study philosophy to become therapists.

This is not a new concept.
