Marriage, Family Therapist Holli Kenley Launches ‘Another Way Wednesday’ Podcast for Parents, Teens


Recovery expert, family therapist, and author Holli Kenley, M.A. MFT is co-hosting a dynamic weekly podcast entitled “Another Way Wednesday Series!”, archived on Jed Doherty’s blog.

The podcast series expands on Kenley’s 2015 educational novel Another Way (Loving Healing Press, 2015), which empowers teens with concrete strategies for making choices based on their worth and their unique levels of readiness.

With an inclusive, compassionate, and accountable approach, Another Way invites readers into the lives of three teenagers – Chloe, Amanda, and Tyrell – whose stories of love, heart-ache, friendship, and pressure to fit in illustrate the power of self-worth in its relationship to healthy decision-making.

Parents and guardians, teens, as well as youth leaders or counselors are the primary target audiences of the podcast series. As Jedlie’s blog puts it, “… This series offers parents a great tool to build those strong relationships, to have those important, ongoing, conversations about potentially life-changing choices.”

The podcast series consists of 9 shows, engaging listeners and encouraging them each Wednesday to begin living their lives “Another Way!” At the end of each podcast, an autographed copy of Another Way will be given away when one lucky listener is the first person to answer a specific podcast question with an email to [email protected]
