Many people remember where they were 17 years ago on September 11th.  The anniversary of the terrorist tragedy has prompted many tributes and tears and reminders to "never forget."  89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with a local psychologist and University of Michigan professor Dr. Robert Pasick, who was among those searching for family members and offering help in the aftermath of the attacks.


Many people have experienced shock and sadness following the suicides this week of popular fashion designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.  Even though we didn't know them personally, some people are struggling to process the deaths.  89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with Ann Arbor psychologist and lecturer at the University of Michigan Dr. Robert Pasick about what to do to cope, and the stigma of mental health issues.

This week on Art and Soul, I am joined by University of Michigan professor Dr. Robert Pasick, who holds a PhD in psychology from Harvard University.

Dr. Pasick has written six books with the latest one on self awareness.  It's called "Self Aware-A Guide for Success in Work and Life."

He talks about how well do we know ourselves, how well do we know other people, and how do we manage ourselves and our relationships, including intimacy and one-on-one relationships.
