S4 E17: Madelyn Rousku on Vulnerability as a Strength
Play • 19 min

Being vulnerable can be a precarious proposition. Too often, one could perceive it as a sign of weakness or, worse, used against us. Dr. Madelyn Rousku says it takes courage to be vulnerable because it takes us to a place we often don't want to go. But can displaying our vulnerability also be a source of strength?

Dr. Madelyn Rousku is a board-certified psychiatrist and serves as chief of psychiatry at the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, part of Meadows Behavioral Healthcare. She specializes in treating young adults who are experiencing a wide range of psychiatric concerns from substance use, eating issues, and mood and anxiety disorders to autism, sexual and gender identity, and more.
