The Lifehack Show Episode 6: On Friendship and Belonging

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Kyler Shumway, Doctor of Clinical Psychology and author of The Friendship Formula: How to Say Goodbye to Loneliness and Discover Deeper Connection. In his earlier years, Dr. Shumway was a target of bullying; he also found himself plagued with social anxiety, which he still battles today, yet also uses as an empowering guide to help others overcome social anxiety and form solid, lasting friendships within their own lives.

Dr. Shumway is an advocate for friendship and believes that: “… together, we can bring an end to the bullying problem by breaking the chain of suffering, daring to be different, and creating a world where everyone belongs.”
