Because I tend to just be an over worker, I love what I do.  There's a lot of need in the world. So it helped me be more present with myself and not let my mind be a runaway train.  Thoughts on Breathing Above all, I love the box breathing method. So It's a nice four-count holding and then releasing. So The reason I like it so much is that it's sustainable because sometimes if I make things too grand and too complex, I might stay with it for a while, but then fall off track. So Suggested Resources Book: The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation By Thich Nhat Hahn Book: Reset: Make the Most of Your Stress: Your 24-7 Plan for Well-Being By Dr. Kristen Lee App: Calm Bullying Story I think it was very commonplace, like in middle school, I was very keenly aware of the bullying that was happening. So I was that loud person that would stand up if I saw someone being hurt. Understanding the impact on one's life when these things happen, and how to help teach social-emotional skills and kindness are things that weren't necessarily present on the school bus in the 1980s. So Therefore, mindfulness would have helped me probably be a little bit more self-compassionate, and it would have helped me deal with that override of anxiety and fear that I was doing in those moments. So I love the exercise of thinking like, what would your past self say to yourself? Or what would you want your future self to say to the now. If I could look back I would say to myself, this is going to help you develop your empathy, this is going to help you be more mindful in how you show up and you contribute to the world. Don't internalize the messages of the meanness of the people, doing this kind of bullying that doesn't define you.  Worth The Risk Related Episodes Enjoy The Gift of the Present; Jennifer Ibbotson Rodriguez Move The Body, Heal The Mind; Dr. Jennifer Heisz Myung Sung: The Korean Art of Living Meditation with Dr. Jenelle Kim Special Offer Are you experiencing anxiety & stress?

You are getting sleeeepy and open to suggestion. But is that how hypnotism works? And does it really open up a portal to the unconscious mind? Hypnotism can be an effective therapeutic tool, and some scientists suggest replacing opioids with hypnosis for pain relief. And yet, the performance aspect of hypnotism often seems at odds with the idea of it being an effective treatment.  In our regular look at critical thinking, Skeptic Check, we ask what part of hypnotism is real and what is an illusion. Plus, we discuss how the swinging watch became hypnotism's irksome trademark.

How does it work?

Don't keep your observations to yourself – I think whether it's with a treatment team or your own consultation or your own therapy - these things can bring so much up in therapists because of their own stories, their own history and the just the intensity of what's happening in these systems.” – Katie Vernoy, LMFT Treatment teaming and avoiding isolation Educating about Parental Alienation Supporting the targeted parent to improve the relationship with the child Working with alienating parent to prepare for improvement in child's relationship with targeted parenting Co-parenting and conflict resolution Therapist communication with all members of the system   Our Generous Sponsors for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: GreenOak Accounting  At GreenOak Accounting, they believe that every private practice should be profitable.

The Practicalities of Mental Health and Gender Affirming Care for Trans Youth: An Interview with Jordan Held, LCSW Curt and Katie interview Jordan Held, LCSW, about gender affirming care, trans mental health, the practicalities of transition (as well as the different types of transition), specifics when working with trans youth, and the politicization of trans folks. We also explore culture and privilege related to transition. Transcripts for this episode will be available at mtsgpodcast.com! An Interview with Jordan Held, LCSW Jordan Held (he/him/his), LCSW is a Primary Therapist and Gender Specialist at Visions Adolescent Treatment Center. Prior to Visions, Jordan was a Therapist and Intake Coordinator at Children's Hospital Los Angeles in the Center for Trans Youth Health and Development, the largest trans youth health clinic in the USA. Jordan's mental health practice centers around creating a trauma-informed and healing-centered space for both adolescents and their families. Jordan's expertise is working with gender and sexual minority youth with complex histories of PTSD and trauma. Jordan speaks internationally about creating and supporting affirmative LGBTQ+ environments with an emphasis on informed consent and enhanced family communication. As a queer-identified, transgender man, Jordan brings an important dual perspective to his work as a mental health provider. Prior to social work, Jordan worked extensively in secondary school education, with a decade of experience teaching, coaching, and developing health and wellness curricula. Jordan's work focuses on gender violence prevention, diversity, equity, inclusion, and cultivating strength and belonging for teens. Jordan is on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the Laurel Foundation, JQ International, and Mental Health America of Los Angeles. Jordan is also a long-time facilitator at Transforming Family, a support group for gender-diverse youth and their family. Jordan holds a Master of Social Welfare degree from UCLA, a Master of Sports Leadership degree from Northeastern University, and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Connecticut. Jordan is an avid sneakerhead who self-cares by lifting heavy weights, going to the beach, loving his rescue dog, and embracing his gender euphoria!   In this podcast episode, we talk about trans mental health For Pride Month, we wanted to deepen our conversation on trans mental health and what therapists should know when working with trans individuals. What is gender-affirmative care? “Trans people are being used as political pawns.” – Jordan Held, LCSW The way that “gender affirming care” is being taken out of context What is actually happening, how it has been politicized The misinformation related to what is available to children who are exploring their gender (i.e., parental consent and youth care) The role of therapists versus the role of medical providers Discussion of gender norms Different types of transition for trans individuals Social transition (name, pronouns, clothes, haircut) Medical interventions that may start during puberty (i.e., puberty blockers, progesterone only birth control) Cross sex hormones and surgeries (which actually require a long process) States are very specific for what they require for gender care (as do insurance companies) Conversations in therapy for trans youth Gender journey Meeting the kids where they're at Lying to get what they need Letters and recommendations for surgery The gender dysphoria diagnosis and sorting that out from depression, anxiety, etc. Supporting trans youth with social transition and getting the support they need The concerns with maladaptive coping skills available online Positive resources for trans youth (scroll down to resources) Identity and impacts The Politicization of Trans Individuals “Shame on us as adults that we are so scared, we have so much fear over – let's be honest – what's in someone's pants, right? All of this has to do with the fear of something that we don't know. This fear… that somebody's genitals do not align what we think is in their pants. And as an adult talking to another adult, that's kind of gross, right? Like, why as adults do we care so much about what is in a kid's pants?” – Jordan Held, LCSW Jordan grew in privilege when he transitioned Legislation Schools removing conversations related to gender and sexuality Play and sports being withheld from trans kids Bias and how being trans is perceived The actual numbers of trans folks who want to play sports or want to use the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity Advice for trans kids and families where gender care is illegal, advice for therapists Age limits and laws that don't align with logic Culture, privilege, and being trans Increasing or decreasing privilege when one transitions Getting used to the changed dynamic within society based on external experience The complexity of the experience and the changing of the experience The concept of “passing” and how it taps into bias   Our Generous Sponsors for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: GreenOak Accounting  At GreenOak Accounting, they believe that every private practice should be profitable.

Katherine T. Kelly, Ph.D., M.S.P.H. is a licensed psychologist in her own psychotherapy and consulting practice in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She completed her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Southern Colorado (1992), and both her Master's (1995) and Doctorate in Counseling Psychology (1999) from Indiana State University. She also earned a Master of Science in Public Health degree (2000) from the University of Missouri-Columbia where she completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the university's Department of Family and Community Medicine. She has received specialized training from the Mind-Body Medical Institute of Harvard University, and has been trained in various holistic, natural health, and spiritual methods of healing. With 31+ years of direct clinical experience, Dr. Kelly doesn't just believe in helping others to heal; instead, her mission is to help them to evolve. Using her own integrative framework—the Soul Health Model (https://www.drkatherinetkelly.com/soul-health-model/)—Dr. Kelly approaches her work with clients from a psycho-spiritual perspective. She provides a uniquely progressive, yet down-to-earth approach to healing and is well-known in both the therapeutic and medical communities. She thrives as she helps clients to reach what she calls conscious evolution through a variety of self-designed methods. Her dedication to healing has been widely recognized as she was the recipient of the 2006 Provider of the Year Award by the regional Mental Health Association, and was nominated as an Incredible Woman for a local community television network, which spotlights role models to inspire young women to pursue their own passions. Dr. Kelly (http://www.amazon.com/Katherine-T.-Kelly-Ph.D.-M.S.P.H./e/B00CL1KNXA) has undergone her own ‘evolution', beginning her career as Coordinator of Alcohol and Drug Education at Indiana State University. She was later recruited to serve as the Director and Treatment Coordinator of a private traumatic brain injury program in the community. Following the completion of her training, she accepted a position as an Assistant Professor and Director of Behavioral Science in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at Wake Forest University. She later entered private practice and founded/owned Branches Holistic Health and Wellness Center. She realized she could make a greater impact elsewhere—so she left that adventure to make room for her other main passions — writing and speaking. Dr. Kelly has authored several academic publications and is an ongoing contributor to both local and national health and wellness magazines (See Articles (https://www.drkatherinetkelly.com/articles-archives/)). Her book Soul Health: Aligning with Spirit for Radiant Living: Revised 2nd Edition (https://www.drkatherinetkelly.com/soul-health/) (2018) has been featured on over 350 national radio shows (see Audio (https://www.drkatherinetkelly.com/audio/) link) and her most recent book, “The Recipe for Radiance: Mastering the Art and Soul of Self-Care” (https://www.drkatherinetkelly.com/recipe-for-radiance/) was published in 2019. She currently owns The Soul Health Center (http://soulhealthcenter.com/), a collective of health and wellness providers and launched Soul Health Essentials– The Oils of Evolution (https://soulhealthessentials.com/) essential oils company in early 2019. The very soul of healthcare has been fractured and that is you, the millions of healthcare workers who took the biggest and deepest hit from the COVID-19 pandemic. You've spent your careers helping others. Now it is time to find and reclaim your inner light on your own path to healing. ​

Podcast Summary A lot of the behavioral sciences can feel intimidating. However, it doesn't have to be. The Five Rules Podcast Series is our attempt at giving you an easy entry point into the complex and messy world of Behavioral Science. 5 Rules for Effective Customer Research That Make A Difference Customer research is an essential part of any organization's customer strategy. However, it requires more than emailing a customer survey out over seven years or so. Customer research requires a few things to be effective in driving the metrics that matter for your experiences.  This episode, with guest Sam Killip, Director of Customer Research from consumer research platform, Attest, which helps organizations understand their customers. Attest's global online consumer platform taps into hundreds of thousands of consumers around the globe.  Killip says their clients survey consumers to understand consumers' views and what they're doing, thinking, and feeling to feed into their customer strategy. With her help, we devised a list of five rules for making these efforts effective.  Key Ideas to Improve your Customer Experience The 5 Rules for Effective Customer Research That Make a Difference include: 1. Define the right method. 2. Get under the skin of the customer. 3. Cast your net wide. 4. Respect the respondents. 5. Do them little and often rather than large-scale. Here are a few key moments in the discussion: 03:09  Killip explain a little background about Attest and how she came to her position there after a long career in law before joining the team. 05:04  We share the first rule, Define the right method, and discuss why survey answers are not always the best way to understand why customers do what they do.  08:55  We introduce the second rule, Get under the skin of the customer, and why mom and pop shop owners knew this one from day one, and how larger companies can gain that same understanding. 14:36  When talking about rule number three, Cast your net wide, Tillip explains how you can get into trouble when you make too many assumptions about your who your customers are. 20:18  As we move into the second to last rule, Respect the respondents, we focus on appreciation for the people who provide the customer voice and the essential nature of keeping them engaged with the project. 23:49  We cover the last rule, Do them little and often rather than large-scale, and why this one is essential to keeping your finger on the pulse of the customer sentiment.

Hitler, Stalin, and Mao ruled through violence, fear, and ideology. But in recent decades a new breed of media-savvy strongmen has been redesigning authoritarian rule for a more sophisticated, globally connected world. In place of overt, mass repression, rulers such as Vladimir Putin, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Viktor Orbán control their citizens by distorting information and simulating democratic procedures. Like spin doctors in democracies, they spin the news to engineer support. Uncovering this new brand of authoritarianism, Sergei Guriev and Daniel Treisman explain the rise of such “spin dictators,” describing how they emerge and operate, the new threats they pose, and how democracies should respond. Spin Dictators traces how leaders such as Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew and Peru's Alberto Fujimori pioneered less violent, more covert, and more effective methods of monopolizing power. They cultivated an image of competence, concealed censorship, and used democratic institutions to undermine democracy, all while increasing international engagement for financial and reputational benefits. The book reveals why most of today's authoritarians are spin dictators—and how they differ from the remaining “fear dictators” such as Kim Jong-un and Bashar al-Assad. Spin Dictators: The Changing Face of Tyranny in the 21st Century (Princeton UP, 2022) is aimed at a general audience, synthesizing a vast amount of qualitative and quantitative research by the authors and many other scholars. The book is highly readable, with a great mix of anecdotes and examples along with plain-English explanations of academic research findings. However, it also provides an excellent overview of contemporary global authoritarianism for academics. Almost every claim in the book has an endnote reference to the original research for those who want to follow up. The endnotes mean that despite its moderately intimidating 340-page heft, the main text is a very approachable 219 pages. Daniel Treisman is a professor of political science at the University of California, Los Angeles and a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research. His research focuses on Russian politics and economics as well as comparative political economy, including in particular the analysis of democratization, the politics of authoritarian states, political decentralization, and corruption. In 2021-22, he was a visiting fellow at Stanford University's Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences and he was recently named a 2022 Andrew Carnegie Fellow. A graduate of Oxford University (B.A. Hons.) and Harvard University (Ph.D. 1995), he has published five books and numerous articles in leading political science and economics journals including The American Political Science Review and The American Economic Review, as well as in public affairs journals such as Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy.

What separates good marketing from great marketing? Marketing is much more than promoting ones' products. It is the science behind influencing people into making a specific decision. And even though we believe we make most of our decisions consciously; our subconscious is consistently being influenced by marketing “nudges”: specific subtle actions that shift your decision-making. That's what we explored in today's conversation with our great guest, and host of the Nudge Podcast, Phill Agnew. Some of this conversation's #GoldenBoulders are:

Have you ever put your success down to a lucky break? Or it's just because you know people in high places? Or even, somebody somewhere made a mistake that's landed you with a new opportunity? If so, you may be suffering from Imposter Syndrome. It's that niggling feeling of inadequacy or self doubt you get when you feel you might be out of your depth, despite other people having confidence in you. It's a common problem. The International Journal of Behavioral Science says that 70% of people experience it at some point in their lives.In a recent live show on LinkedIn, the leadership experts at Trilogy Effect sat down to discuss what's driving this trend and provide some practical tips and advice for people with Imposter Syndrome. Mary Beth Sawicki explains, “It is common, and honestly, I'd be surprised if the number wasn't higher than 70 per cent. Given today's fast-paced environment and the ever-changing landscape that we're all navigating, it's hard not to feel self doubt or uncertainty about what you've been tasked with. Yet, when we do a 360-review exercise, for example, most of our clients see that their peers tend to see them as more competent, more effective than they see themselves.”Heather Marasse says, “Feeling like an imposter isn't necessarily always a bad thing. It can be a clue that you're growing as a business leader. As soon as we move beyond our comfort zone, there is a part of us, our ego, that wants to pull us back and have us continue running old patterns, because that has been our success formula throughout our forming years. Getting beyond this can feel awkward but it's important to step beyond our usual patterns to continue to develop our leadership skills.” Wendy Appel advises, “If you are feeling like an imposter because you've taken on something new, just remember that this is your growing edge and it's normal and natural. Think about these feelings as an opportunity to grow. You are embarking on something new, and nobody starts out being perfect at something. You'll grow into your new role.” In this audio recording of the Live show, you'll learn about:What Imposter Syndrome is and how to recognize it in you. How to manage your feelings to make the most of feeling like an imposter.How knowing your Enneagram type will help you navigate your way through it. Resources:Free Leadership Guidebook: Be Your Best as a Leader By Using the EnneagramHow to use the Enneagram to Become A Better LeaderIs your career at a tipping point?Win a free Enneagram Type Discovery Session Please subscribe to the Being Human Is Good for Business Podcast on iTunes, Google Podcasts, iHeart Radio (links below) or wherever you get your podcasts.

If you're planning for retirement, longevity is on your mind. From a financial perspective, you're looking to ensure that your money will last. No one precisely knows their life expectancy, but research is indicating that some choices we make can influence our longevity - and the quality of life in those years. Heathy eating and exercising are two obvious examples. And a new study highlights another dimension associated with longer longevity - your psychological well-being. The study found people with high levels of psychological well-being lived between 5 and 8 years longer. Our guest shares with us the findings of that study and practical steps you can take to increase your psychological well-being. Dr, Jennifer Boylan joins us from Colorado. __________________________ Bio Jennifer Morozink Boylan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver. Her research focuses on health disparities, psychological factors that influence physical health, and biological mechanisms that link the social environment to disease processes. As a health psychologist, her research addresses the ways in which psychological factors engender resilience and protect against health risks associated with disadvantaged social status. This work utilizes multiple methodologies, including national longitudinal survey data, biological assessments of cardiovascular and metabolic risk factors, and laboratory assessments of emotion regulation and physiological reactivity and recovery to stress. Jennifer earned her Ph.D. and M.S. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Biological Psychology, and a B.A. in Psychology at Illinois Wesleyan University. __________________________ For More on Dr. Jennifer Boylan Four Keys to Well-Being That May Help You Live Longer Psychological well-being, education, and mortality. _________________________ Podcast Episodes You May Like Breaking the Age Code – Dr. Becca Levy Retire Happy – Dr. Catherine Sanderson Successful Aging – Daniel Levitin The Mind-Body Connection and The Rabbit Effect – Kelli Harding __________________________ Wise Quotes On Well-Being & Longevity  "In our study, we compared these effects of psychological well-being with two other factors. One was education. The survival benefits of psychological well-being were comparable differences in life expectancy, between someone who had a college degree compared to someone who had less than a high school education. Now the survival benefits of high psychological well-being were not quite as big as the differences in life expectancy between someone who has never smoked versus a current smoker. That difference is about 10 years, but our study was one of the first to report these associations between psychological well-being and life expectancy, which I think is really helpful for conveying just how important psychological well-being can be for how long we live." On How to Increase Your Psychological Well-Being "There are a lot of ways, backed by scientific research, to increase your psychological well-being. These can include things like connecting with other people and then nurturing high quality social relationships, writing about your goals in life, being authentic with your core values, volunteering and engaging with your community. You want to seek out positive experiences, even small ones in daily life and try to savor those. And over time, all of those experiences can increase your psychological well-being. I think it's also important to note that some activities that increase our psychological well-being might not always feel good or enjoyable in the short term. It takes a lot of work and effort to strive to achieve your goals, to make the most of your talents and to work to make the world a better place. But those activities also increase your psychological well-being and can be good for your physical health and how long you live.

In this podcast episode, we talk about how the media often portrays mental health We invited our friend Danah Davis Williams to join us to talk about mental health in the media. What does the media get wrong when portraying mental health and therapy? Inaccurate portrayals of diagnoses Manipulative or unethical therapists The problems with “guilty pleasures” that include inaccurate or harmful portrayals “I really feel that one of the ways that we can see more authentic representation is to have more diversity and more people with mental health background in storytelling, in the writers' rooms, or becoming creators themselves – because people write what they know.” – Danah Davis Williams, LMFT The opportunities for therapists to be creators and consultants Translating clinical work into consulting and creating Vulnerability when sharing journey as a therapist Using skills from practice building to create opportunities as a creator The process of consultation for scripts and what to consider when providing feedback Ethical thoughts related to representations How to build a network and consulting business How the storytellers look at mental health and healing “What I've had multiple times is a filmmaker or studio coming to me, and they're looking for the silver bullet. They have a character that has had some trauma or struggling with a specific diagnosis or relational conflict or what have you. And they want to know, what's the silver bullet, one- or two-page scene that we can include? (And sometimes not even that.) What's the five second dialogue that we can include that shows that they have worked on their mental health, they have recovered, and they are thriving? And it's like, it doesn't work that way.” – Danah Davis Williams, LMFT The silver bullet that “heals” the client Inaccurate portrayals of therapy or healing and the impact on clients Ethics to consider (especially given you're not acting within your profession with an ethical code) The challenges of unscripted shows Shows that get it right when it comes to mental health and treatment This is us – Toby Comprehensive and realistic, tapping into lived experience within actors and/or writers The attempts to portray diversity and the experience of marginalized communities and their interaction in the mental health system Diversifying Media and the Portrayals of Mental Health and Therapy Ava Duvernay's Array program Michael B Jordan hiring students and mentoring the next generation Decreasing stigma for folks who have not typically sought mental health services How to advocate for accurate mental health portrayals in the media Calling things out on social media that are good and things that are done poorly (or are harmful) Content creation about shows you watch (like blogs, articles, etc.) Discussing content in sessions to help process what folks are viewing or their own experience Not watching or purchasing tickets to content that is harmful (not reinforcing “guilty pleasures”)       Our Generous Sponsors for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: GreenOak Accounting  At GreenOak Accounting, they believe that every private practice should be profitable.
