Relationships with Dr. Rebecca Jankovich

Thursday: 5:34am and 7:34am

Relationships with Dr. Rebecca Jankovich airs Thursdays during Morning Edition at 5:34am and 7:34.

Dr. Jankovich has been working as a psychologist since 1974. She works with a range of problems including relationships, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, grief, trauma, and struggles with life transitions. Rebecca practices what she preaches to not burn out by leaving the office to ride equine races with her horses, and travel the world.

When a long marriage comes to an end the wife comes to therapy to talk about why she stayed so long.

End of life issues are disturbing to consider.  Dr. Jankovich says a book by Dr. Atul Gawande can help.

Dr. Jankovich shares some ideas from Atul Gawande's book, "Being Mortal:  Medicine and What Matters in the End."
