In this episode hosted by the Gender Equity Working Group of the RANZCP, Dr Carol Silberberg and Associate Professor Samantha Loi discuss the challenges involved in balancing leadership roles with family commitments and provide their own experiences and advice about how to tackle these. Dr Andrew Amos is a Representative of the RANZCP's Gender Equity Working Group.Associate Professor Samantha Loi is a neuropsychiatrist, old age psychiatrist, principal research fellow at the University of Melbourne, mother, stepmother, partner and one of a very small group of women academic-psychiatrists at the RANZCP.  She has a h-index of 20, over 80 publications and has obtained lots of funding for various projects but unfortunately none for her personal use. Her clinical and work interests include dementia, ageing and death.    Associate Professor Loi is a keen advocate for lifting up other women and inspiring them to pursue an academic career and interest in research.Dr Carol Silberberg left her role in academic psychiatry to focus on conflict resolution and time management after having children. As a fitness junkie, she now stays fit by running after her children and does 10 000 steps a day as Director of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry at St Vincent's Melbourne, with specialist interests in eating disorders and diabetes. Coupled with her longstanding work with asylum seekers, she has been inspired to develop her leadership skills to be a stronger advocate for these populations. Dr Silberberg is passionate about improving family unfriendly practices and inequities that are widespread in medical workplaces. To unwind, she dabbles as a ceramicist, cellist, cook, and singer. In her spare time, she enjoys catching up on her backlog of emails and missed sleep.Resources   Spotify playlist for Should I stay or should I gohttps://open.spotify.com/playlist/7H4LnJ77f8xOkQmy4pjoyr?si=L5taYhdgTKipIte-QDrcjQDr Silberberg in the Storytellers of STEM podcast https://anchor.fm/storytellersofstemm/episodes/120---Carol-Silberberg-Consultation-Liaison-Psychiatry-e10n83pFeedback:If you have a topic suggestion or would like to participate in a future episode of Psych Matters, we'd love to hear from you.Please contact us by email at: psychmatters.feedback@ranzcp.orgDisclaimer:This podcast is provided to you for information purposes only and to provide a broad public understanding of various mental health topics.  The podcast may represent the views of the author and not necessarily the views of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists ('RANZCP').

Forensic psychiatrist, violence expert, Editor of "The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump” and World Mental Health Coalition President Dr. Bandy Lee joins Zerlina on the show to discuss her early warnings about Trump and the resulting backlash.Dr. Bandy Lee is a medical doctor, a forensic psychiatrist, and a world expert on violence who taught at Yale School of Medicine and Yale Law School for 17 years before transferring recently to Columbia and Harvard. She became known to the public by leading a group of mental health professional colleagues in breaking the silence about the immediate past U.S. president's dangerous psychology and publishing the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” (Macmillan, 2017 and 2019). The volume proceeded from an ethics conference she organized at Yale School of Medicine, which led to her consulting with over 50 members of the U.S. Congress. She is currently president of the World Mental Health Coalition, the largest professional organization to address the problem of dangerous leadership and its contribution to a ‘psychological pandemic.' During medical school, she obtained an additional divinity degree to expand her understanding of the human condition. Trained at Yale and Harvard Universities, she was chief resident at Massachusetts General Hospital and a research fellow at the National Institute of Mental Health.  At Yale Law School, she taught clinical courses covering the mental health aspects of asylum law, criminal justice, and veteran legal services.  Her clinical practice consists of psychiatric services at maximum-security prisons and in state hospitals, in addition to working as an expert witness for civil and criminal courts.  At Yale College, she was a popular professor who taught the Global Health Studies course, “Violence: Causes and Cures.” Most recently, she accepted the invitation to co-found an institute on violence prevention at Union Theological Seminary with multiple world experts in the field. She served as Director of Research for the Center for the Study of Violence (Harvard, U. Penn., N.Y.U., and Yale), co-founded Yale's Violence and Health Study Group at the MacMillan Center for International Studies, and has led an academic collaborators project for the World Health Organization's Violence Prevention Alliance, helping to translate scholarship into implementation and to support research in low- and middle-income countries.  She has consulted with governments on prison reform and community violence prevention, such as for France, Ireland, Alabama, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York.  She has also played a key role in initiating reforms at Rikers Island, a correctional facility in New York City known for extreme levels of violence. She authored what is considered the most comprehensive textbook on the subject to date, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures” (Wiley-Blackwell, 2019) and published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and chapters, 17 edited scholarly books and journal special issues, and over 300 op-eds in outlets such as the Guardian, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Independent, and Politico.  The World Mental Health Coalition is an educational organization that assembles mental health experts to collaborate with other disciplines for the betterment of public mental health and public safety.  It attempts to step in where the psychiatric establishment failed in societal leadership, or profited (as did the American Psychiatric Association) by protecting powerful political figures over the public. Her current goals center around educating the public on mental health matters so as to empower it through knowledge and enlightenment. She owes great debt to her maternal grandfather, Dr. Geun-Young Lee, a renowned physician who helped reconstruct South Korea after the war, and to her mother, Dr. Inmyung Lee, who continued to practice his philosophy in the United States, a country she adopted and loved for its historic ability to place principles above tribal factions and narrow self-interest.

The history of expertise in medicine and science led the field of psychotherapy to its beloved empirically supported treatments (ESTs). Psychiatrists were prescribing pills, and psychotherapists were offering best practices. But how did these best practices get their reputation, and what happens when clients and therapists alike believe uncertain truths about mental health treatment?

Dr Brown graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2003. She is a UK based Consultant Psychiatrist as well as being a qualified Functional Medicine Practitioner. She is a member of The British Society for Ecological Medicine, The Institute for Functional Medicine and The Royal College of Psychiatrists.  Dr Brown specialises in working within General Adult Psychiatry and has an endorsement in Liaison Psychiatry as well as a Master degree in Medical Laws and Ethics. Dr Brown has specialist experience of working within Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Teams. After completing Higher Specialist Training in 2011 she worked within community and inpatient psychiatric services before taking up her post with a Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team in 2016.  Dr Brown is an Educational Supervisor for core psychiatric trainees as well as being a Clinical Supervisor for both core and higher trainees in psychiatry. She has been involved in undergraduate teaching of medical students, service development with the introduction of skills training to her local NHS health board and has ongoing research involvement with a pilot study examining the effectiveness of the ketogenic diet on the symptoms of bipolar disorder. Dr Brown's main area of interest relates to the field of Metabolic Psychiatry. She is a Nutrition Network Advisor and recommends therapeutic carbohydrate restriction for the treatment of mental disorder. Other interests include food addiction and optimisation of gut health for the improvement of mental health. Dr Brown believes in holistic medical care and addressing root cause of illness. She believes there is a better way for the practice of psychiatry, that relies less on pharmaceuticals and more on addressing underlying metabolic and environmental causes of mental illness. Dr Brown has grown weary of the simplistic pharma-focussed standard psychiatric approach to patients and after improving her own health by implementing dietary strategies of paleo, then keto and ultimately a carnivore diet, Dr Brown is a passionate advocate for the beneficial impact of proper nutrition on overall health, with the aim of addressing the root cause of illness, not simply masking symptoms.  In July 2022 Dr Brown released her first book titled: “Metabolic Madness.” The subject of the book is the relationship between metabolic health and mental disorder and the book is designed to make the complex science behind this topic accessible to the everyday reader.  Find Dr. Brown on IG: @carnivoreshrink Timestamps: 00:00 Introduction 02:26 Mental health disorders on the rise 03:59 Nutrition's role in mental health 07:24 Mental crisis team 11:32 Foods problematic for mental health  12:38 Hospital food and mental health 14:15 Plant-based diet and mental health disorders 16:23 Physiology of mental health disorders; metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance; gut health 18:48 Screening for inflammation in mental health patients 20:18 Mental health improvements with diet 21:50 Having power to make change; metabolic psychiatry clinic 23:38 Having community support 25:04 Animal-based nutrition superior for mental health 27:45 Funding grassroots research for carnivore diet 28:19 Starting on the carnivore diet 31:49 Family and carnivore diet 35:01 Health benefits of carnivore diet 37:48 Restaurant scene in Edinburgh  39:10 Scottish guidelines 40:16 Low cholesterol, depression, violence 41:22 Insulin resistance contributing to chronic diseases 42:44 Medication side effects avoided with diet 44:04 How to wean off medications with improving diet 48:11 Financial incentive to change nutrition 50:19 Haggis 51:05 Book “Metabolic Madness” 53:16 Where to find Rachel  See open positions at Revero: https://jobs.lever.co/Revero/ Join Carnivore Diet for a free 30 day trial: https://carnivore.diet/join/ Book a Carnivore Coach: https://carnivore.diet/book-a-coach/ Carnivore Shirts: https://merch.carnivore.diet Subscribe to our Newsletter: https://carnivore.diet/subscribe/ . ‪#revero #shawnbaker #Carnivorediet #MeatHeals #HealthCreation   #humanfood #AnimalBased #ZeroCarb #DietCoach  #FatAdapted #Carnivore #sugarfree  ‪

Professor Tony Attwood has specialized in Autism Spectrum Disorders since he qualified as a clinical psychologist in England in 1975. He has written two books: Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome. Between the two, they've sold over 800,000 copies and have been translated into dozens of languages. He has been a keynote speaker at many Australian and International Conferences and he presents workshops and runs training courses for parents, professionals, and individuals with Asperger's syndrome all over the world. Today, Dr. Attwood helps us to better understand autistic traits in the gender-questioning teens we see today. We covered this topic in Episode 17 but felt there were things we missed and wanted to clarify. As Dr. Atwood informed us before we hit record, his expertise is in Autism, and he may not be as well versed in the intricacies of contemporary gender identity activism or the studies around gender dysphoria, transition, and desistance. But his knowledge of autism in children and teens is vast and he was engaging and lovely to speak to! We asked Dr. Attwood about special interests, or the fixations and narrow obsessions that are common in autism, we asked him about the difficulty with socializing and how immediate affirmation in an LGBT peer group might be experienced. We also delve into the vulnerabilities and strengths of autistic adolescents and how parents can best support their children when they make rigid or urgent demands. Dr. Attwood highlights the difficult position parents may be in when their child is highly distressed but rushing into a process he/she may not fully understand. We also explored the new world that has opened up to teens via computers and social media and the tricky landscape that complicates a normal adolescent search for identity.

Often, in those with autism, the age of emotional maturity does not match the chronological age. Professor Attwood describes what he believes to be the similarities between autism and gender. Autistic individuals seek affirmation and the transgender community offers affirmation but not at the level the autistic individual is seeking. Discovering a self-identity, regardless of gender, is a mechanism of realization utilized by Professor Attwood. Parents are expected to accept a child's different concept of self in autism and gender. From a psychological perspective, it seems that social transition creates a sort of pathway toward medical transition. With autism subtlety is rare. Professor Attwood shares the positive and negative physical and psychological advantages for teens who find acceptance online. In his group, Professor Attwood explores how the world is perceived by autistic individuals. The ratio of autistic boys to girls is two to one. One in three of those in eating disorder clinics have autism, gender-dysphoria, etc. What it means when diagnoses are changed from autism to ADHD+. Professor Attwood describes an example of when children have characteristics of autism but not the disability. Gender exploration can lead to a change of course and into a new persona. Professor Attwood doesn't see autism as a psychiatric condition. Psychiatrists may see autism as a treatable condition. People who are bad at emotional regulation become controlling over others. Professor Attwood is bilingual. He speaks neuro-typical speak to neurotypical people and autism-speak to the autistic parent. Wider Lens Renewal Retreat – Arizona 2022:...

Psychiatrists Discuss The State of Mental Health in the Black Community pt. 2 For season six, we are working to curate panels with expertise on specific topics. We are always trying to bring more, and we are truly delivering. This week, we are continuing an incredible discussion about mental health in the Black Community. Drs. Danielle Hairston, Kevin Simon and Amanda Calhoun are each highly prolific, dynamic writers, speakers and educators within this space. We were very fortunate that they took the time to answer questions and share their experiences as Black Psychiatrists. We start with a conversation about the burden Black physicians carry in contrast with our colleagues. We talk about experiences with patients, co-workers and supervisors. We talk about burnout and how it is manifested and overcome by those in medical training, and those that have graduated and are practicing. The views discussed in this episode MUST be taken in context and do not reflect upon our employers. How do we deal with burnout? How does the experience of Black medical students and physicians differ from our counterparts? How can we help our underrepresented patients navigate a health system that was not built for us? This episode features: Dr. Danielle Hairston a double-board certified Psychiatrist and the youngest Black, female residency program director in the US. (Dr. Hairston was my resident when I was a medical student at Howard University College of Medicine). She is also a young APA Black Caucus President and Black Psychiatrist of America Scientific Program Committee Chair and has written extensively about bias in Psychiatry. She has consulted with companies like Google, and Youtube.

Warning: In-depth talk about eating disorders, exercise addiction and references to suicide. Recent analysis from the Royal College of Psychiatrists has revealed that hospital admissions for people with eating disorders have risen 84% in the last five years - with boys and young men increasingly affected. Body dysmorphia is now thought to affect men and women in equal numbers. So why is there still a lack of resources and support groups to help men? This week, Media Storm hears from men who have been affected by bulimia, body dysmorphia and exercise addiction, about why they felt they couldn't seek help. We hear from a peer support group for men about how far we've come in tackling stigma - and how far there is to go. Plus, we dip into the rise of muscularity-orientated disordered eating, and hear how the 'big, strong, tough' masculinity stereotype affects the body image of men - especially for Black men. We're joined in the studio by writer and artist Scottee, to discuss the intersections of masculinity, class, and queerness, reclaiming fatness, and the impact of the Love Island legacy.

Have you ever been hypnotized? When you hear the word hypnosis, I'm willing to bet the first thing you think of is those stage performances where an audience member is instructed to do something ridiculous. But in reality, hypnosis is so much more than that, and it can truly benefit you in many ways. Whether you want to stress less, sleep better, manage pain, lose weight, overcome fears, or improve professional performance, hypnosis can help you do it. This week's Beyond Influential guest, Dr. David Spiegel is the expert when it comes to clinical hypnosis, and his mission is to help destigmatize hypnosis and show you how you can use the power of your own mind to heal and achieve. I wanted to have Dr. Spiegel on because this isn't pseudoscience; what we discuss today is backed by decades of scientific research and clinical experience. Dr. Spiegel has a laundry list of accomplishments and accolades, including degrees from Yale and Harvard Medical School. He is currently serving as Willson Professor and Associate Chair of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Director of the Center on Stress and Health, and Medical Director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, where he has been a member of the academic faculty since 1975. Dr. Spiegel has more than 40 years of clinical and research experience studying psycho-oncology, stress and health, pain control, sleep, hypnosis, and more. He has published thirteen books, over 400 scientific journal articles, and contributed over 170 book chapters on hypnosis, psychosocial oncology, stress physiology, trauma, and psychotherapy. His research has been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Aging, and several other organizations. He is Past President of the American College of Psychiatrists and the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis. He was also invited to speak on hypnosis at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2018.  On top of all of this, Dr. Spiegel is also the Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer at Reveri, which is an app designed to help you learn and use the proven techniques of self-hypnosis to experience the benefits of hypnosis quickly and conveniently.  On Ep. 182, we cover: Hypnosis: What it is & how it works Benefits of Hypnosis: How it can help with everything from reducing stress, anxiety, and depression to overcoming addiction, trauma, and phobias, to pain management, weight loss, better sleep, and improved focus Clinical vs. Stage Hypnosis: What's the difference?

Dr Az Hakeem, a Consultant Psychiatrist and Visiting Professor in Psychiatry & Applied Psychotherapy who ran a specialist gender dysphoria service in the NHS for twelve years, discusses gender dysphoria and the politicisation of this condition within what has become its own lobby. Discussing his involvement with the Clinical Advisory Network on Sex and Gender, a group of clinicians based in the UK and Ireland, calling for a greater understanding of the effects of sex and gender in healthcare, Hakeem notes how he and his colleagues are concerned about the current overthrow of reality by gender ideology, especially as children are being put on a trajectory of hormones and surgery. He also explores the theatre of organisational “support” offered by the medical community vituperating the Royal College of Psychiatrists that issues statements supporting “gender” treatments even rough it failed to ask its psychiatrist members and fellows within the College for their opinions on this subject. Hakeem maintains that most psychiatrists do not share the official mantra of the RCP. When asked where scientific evidence exists that demonstrates an enhancement of quality of life resulting from “gender affirming” surgeries or hormones, Hakeem answers, “There is no evidence,” elaborating how there are no follow-up studies on this demographic within the NHS, thus allowing the propagation of false narratives (eg. that those who are refused treatment will commit suicide) to bend pubic opinion on this subject.

Soumitra Pathare trained as a psychiatrist at Seth G S Medical College & KEM Hospital Mumbai and St Thomas' Hospital, London. He has a doctoral degree from VU University, Amsterdam and is a Member of The Royal College of Psychiatrists, United Kingdom.     Dr. Pathare is based in Pune, India and is the director of the Centre for Mental Health Law and Policy at the Indian Law Society.  His main area of work concentrates on mental health policy, legislation and human rights. Soumitra has worked as a consultant to many countries reforming their mental health policies and laws. As will be described in this interview, Dr. Pathare has been affiliated with the World Health Organization's commitment to equip and train mental health practitioners throughout the world about the importance of human rights.In this interview, Dr. Pathare will help to make the distinction between “civil or constitutional rights” and “human rights.”  In essence, human rights are those afforded all people. They are universal and inviolable and not dependent upon the country in which you live.    He will walk us through the establishment of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 and how, over the decades, there have been “elaborations” of that initial effort to focus on particular human needs (e.g., rights of children, rights of women, elimination of racism and discrimination, etc.).  It was only recently (2006), that the UN promoted the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) which is a landmark human rights treaty among countries around the world to protect the fundamental rights of all persons with disabilities.The World Health Organization (WHO) has created global initiative, called Quality Rights to transform the way mental health care is delivered and to change attitudes toward people with psychosocial, intellectual, and cognitive disabilities.  Their goal is to have all the countries in the world implement QR by 2030, but  the US hasn't even ratified the CPRD. Dr. Pathare will talk about how Quality Rights represents a movement away from a bio-medical approach to mental illness to a recovery approach which values the ability of people to make choices.  Further it is a movement away from a definition of wellness that is defined by “symptom reduction”  toward the ability to fully participate in community. Links to the studies discussed in the interviewAssertive community treatment for the severely mentally ill in West LambethTom Craig and Soumitra Pathare, Advances in Psychiatric Treatment (1997) vol 3, pp. 111-118.Public Education for Community Care:  A New Approach.The British journal of psychiatry:  the journal of medical science.  May 1996.  Pp. 441 – 447.Soumitra Pathare, Julian Leff, Geoffrey Wolff, Thomas K J Craig

AND SHE WAS WAS "RECALLED TO LIFE"**This phrase is from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.Suzanne took the antidepressant Paxil, a “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor,” (SSRI) for six years. These cause brain damage, but no doctor had ever warned her. When her psychiatrist finally transitioned her off the medication, she immediately began to have sexual dysfunction and other withdrawal symptoms. So he recommended restarting 10mg a day, a minimal dose.Noxious, menacing effects due to SSRIs occur frequently after the second or the third time that a patient stops or restarts them.  This is what happened to Suzanne.   While taking the 10mg of Paxil, Suzanne became paranoid, had violent verbal outbursts, and had her first involuntary movements (dystonia or possibly tardive dyskinesia). She became suicidal, had other violent thoughts, and fantasized about cutting herself.  These are well-known occasional effects of SSRIs.The doctors forcibly hospitalized her. Her family, having little understanding or other options, went along with it. She was soon hallucinating and repeatedly screaming nonsense words. She wanted to hurt the people around her and had to be physically restrained by hospital security personnel.So the doctors increased her Paxil to 30mg a day—triple the dosage that initially caused problems. Even though this made Suzanne worse, they also added Zyprexa, (an antipsychotic), Ativan (a sedative), and Ambien (a sleep drug). She says Zyprexa was horrible. It made her feel as if knives were stabbing all over her body. It also gave her thoughts that people were trying to kill her. She was held in a locked mental health facility similar to a prison and was threatened with increased medication dosage if she did not improve.Since these effects occurred suddenly after starting the drugs, she realized that they were to blame. Fortunately, she was allowed to keep her smartphone, although the staff repeatedly threatened to take it. Suzanne started studying 14 hours a day from inside her solitary prison-like cell. She first read in Dutch but later began using English on the Facebook group dedicated to her primary drug effect, “akathisia.”She found MISSD.CO, Woodymatters.com, MadinAmerica.com, and other websites dedicated to psychiatric medication disasters like hers. Suzanne was dumbfounded by Katinka Blackford-Newmann's story because her involuntary hospitalization in the EU was nearly identical to Suzanne's. When Suzanne explained akathisia and dystonia to her state-employed Dutch psychiatrists, they insisted that there was no such thing.

We all like to think that our psychiatrists are perfect paragons of virtue and that we are their only patients. But, deep down, we all know that isn't really true. Psychiatrists see multiple patients, have many responsibilities, and are human — just like the rest of us.  Join us as Dr. Nicole, a board certified psychiatrist, shares what behaviors get under her skin. We discuss how doctors don't know what “the pink triangle pill” is, how they don't all enjoy hugs, and why screaming at their staff doesn't improve your care.

He is the author of the popular book, "Mental Illness is an Asshole and other Observations," available from Amazon; signed copies are also available directly from the author.

After receiving her BS degree, she moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to enroll in the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed a residency in psychiatry at the University of Oklahoma in Tulsa. Since completing her residency training, Washington has spent most of her career caring for and being an advocate for those who are not typically consumers of mental health services, namely underserved communities, those with severe mental health conditions, and high performing professionals. Through her private practice, podcast, speaking, and writing, she seeks to provide education to decrease the stigma associated with psychiatric conditions. Find out more at DrNicolePsych.com.

Missdiagnosed: Uncovering the Truth Behind the Mental Health Industry

Did you know that mental illness was invented? First came the "discovery" of so-called brain diseases that were caused by a chemical imbalance for which there is no test to prove even exists... then came the marketing of the drugs to "treat" the disease. Mental illness was invented, as was the DSM, to give psychiatrists more credibility and, with the index of diagnosis codes, hundreds of ways to bill insurance for "treatment" of their patients. Psychiatrists do not get paid unless there is a diagnosis! Simply making an appointment is often seen as a sign of "mental illness" and it's the first step in getting you hooked into the machine -- dependent on artificial chemicals (drugs) that damage your brain and perpetuate your dependency on psychiatry.

“It was supposed to be my day off and I was having a full on dance party on the sports court… I had not downloaded the app so nobody could message me - and apparently Sixthman had been trying to find me… I walk into Sixthman headquarters and she [Sixthman Jen] just said ‘How do you feel about the pool deck at 11:30am?'… OF COURSE… but then it was a matter of rounding up the troops who all thought they had off that day”- Megan FarrellThe BoatCast's first artist interviewee, Meaghan Farrell returns to the podcast nearly two years to the date of her March 2020 interview. In that time, Meaghan had truly grown into her own - and owned every stage on TRB XXI. Meaghan retells the “behind the scenes” details on fateful day when Boaters were unable to get off the boat in the Bahamas due to weather conditions. Sixthman asked her to play the pool deck - and her response was an easy YES but rounding up the troops (several of which had just gone to bed in anticipation of a day off) was more of a challenge. She reflects that she had invested in a full band for The Boat and how her gut instincts paid off. She talks playing out on the road with fellow boaters such as: Red Wanting Blue, Tony Lucca, Will Hoge. Meaghan and The BoatCast discuss November's upcoming Texified Jam Fest and more!
