The Friendship Fix
We all need friends. Friends contribute to our physical, social and psychological well-being, but relationships with friends can get complicated. In this show, Dr. Andrea Bonior, psychologist and author of The Friendship Fix: The Complete Guide to Choosing, Losing and Keeping Up with Your Friends, speaks candidly about women and their friendships. She considers the changes that life circumstances make on our friendships from the twenty-eight year old professional who looks around to find all of her friends getting married to the newly divorced baby-boomer who looks around to find all of her friends still married.

In the back and forth with host, Suzanne Phillips, Dr. Bonior takes on the questions like—How do we make friends at any age? How do we determine if a friendship is toxic? Can men and women really be platonic friends? Has technology caused us to “hoard” friends instead of relate to them? If you have ever wondered about the how and why to the friendships you have or the friendships you want, you will not be disappointed.
