The Martha Trowbridge Radio Hour focuses upon depression, trauma, complicated grief, betrayal, victimization, post-traumatic stress disorder, addictions, self-erosion, degradation, profound shame, perceived powerlessness, loneliness, and struggles with self-esteem and self-actualization.

The Crazy-Making Husband Radio Show speaks to women who suffer moderate to severe crazy-making at the hands of their husbands.

For women seeking to strengthen their resolve, and their lives, Woman, Empowered Radio Show offers expert advice on a wide range of topics, including entrepreneurship and politics.

Via classic American film, principally from the 1930’s and 1940’s, Magnificent Movies reconnects women with their enduring feminine needs.

Other programming includes Powerful Woman, Crushed Wife; and Wives At Risk A program series for military families is in pre-production.

Christian Contemplation examines emotional and mental agonies from an orthodox Christian perspective, offering wondrous spiritual inspirational programming.

 

Martha’s empathic, grounded inspiration for women in crisis has its roots in life-experience, psychology, and orthodox Christianity.  Underpinned by healthy, classic moral perspectives, her work is dedicated to ‘Purity Of Heart, And Purity Of Purpose’.  In their quest for authentic healing, she encourages women everywhere to join her in this commitment.

A graduate of Martin Wales Radio Show Mentoring Program, Martha holds an A.B. in The Classics [Greek and Latin] from Radcliffe College. Her graduate work includes creative writing at Radcliffe Seminars and at Emerson College; graduate work in business, and more than two decades of study in psychology.

Her collaboration commencing in 2004 with positive psychologist for women Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein provided her the opportunity to co-host [2007 – 2008] the weekly e-radio show “Happiness For Women Only” at InternetVoicesRadio.

Among Martha’s mentors are Dr. Michael Eigen, Editor, Psychoanalytic Review, and Dr. Don Nathanson, Executive Director of The Silvan S. Tomkins Institute. The considerable generosity and unflappable support of both these men encouraged her to persevere — via writing and radio programs — in mentoring suffering women.

Martha is particularly grateful for two years of study of the psychology of narcissism with Harvard Medical School Associate Professor Of Psychology Dr. Silvia Halperin [The Cambridge Hospital Department of Psychiatry], whose focus upon Kohutian self-psychology afforded Martha her model’s foundational organizing principles. She is also grateful to Dr. Nancy Brehm for her loving instruction on D. W. Winnicott.

Commencing in 1997, several years of study at PsyBC presented Martha with access to the brilliance of many leading psychologists, including Dr. Michael Eigen, Dr. Stan Tatkin, Dr. Otto Kernberg, and Dr. John Gottman.

Affect theory, self psychology, the psychology of women, D.W. Winnicott, object relations, cognitive therapy, the psychology of trauma, group therapy psychology and the principles of coaching materially inform her work. Affective neuroscience is her current area of study.

She is author of several works of inspiration, including the upcoming Wings Of God’s-Love: Soaring Forever Up And Away From Trauma And Depression.

As often as she can, Martha quilts, sews, gardens, cooks, writes fiction, reads, and writes song lyrics [ASCAP]. A strict environmentalist, she is a devotee of American Classic Films of the 1930’s and 1940’s.
