The Couch and the Screen: “Stutz” – Podcast

By Jason Clayden on November 29, 2023

In our November episode of our Couch and the Screen series, Nicholette is joined by her colleagues Angel Kramer and Laura McClure as they engage in a thought-provoking conversation on pop culture with guest Dr. Anisha Patel–Dunn. The episode centers around the Netflix documentary film “Stutz,” directed by Jonah Hill, which delves into the life of psychiatrist Dr. Phil Stutz. The podcast crew shares varied perspectives on the film, exploring its portrayal of therapy, the destigmatization of mental health, and the therapeutic relationship between Phil Stutz and Jonah Hill.

They highlight its impact on destigmatizing mental health for specific demographics while also critiquing elements such as boundary issues, therapeutic approach, and the origins of therapeutic techniques.
