Why can’t we be friends? Navigating friendships when you have different beliefs
Show Notes

Welcome to The Formulation Station: A Psychology Podcast with your co-hosts, Dr. Aimee Maxwell and Jessica Graham! On today’s episode, Aimee and Jess chat about the complexity of navigating friendships when you have different beliefs. On this episode, we explore how and when this may be problematic, and how to either maintain these friendships or end these relationships. Jess and Aimee highlight that this issue is a delicate balance between how much you value the friendships versus how much you value the opinion opposite. On therapy corner today, Aimee and Jess discuss their favourite treatment modalities and address their psych-successes and human moments for this past fortnight.
