Thoughts on Record: Podcast of the Ottawa Institute of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
At the moment there is no more talked about neurotransmitter than dopamine. Our collective obsession with dopamine has led to a huge amount of content generated around so-called “dopamine fasts”, how to leverage dopamine for motivation, worries about dopamine-driven addiction to devices, pornography, food etc. In addition, there is a tremendous amount of confusion and misunderstanding around what dopamine actually does within the brain, especially with respect to the experience of pleasure. Professor, psychiatrist and author, Dr. Daniel Z. Lieberman, joins us for a discussion of the major themes explored in his and Michale E. Long's book, The Molecule of More. In this conversation we cover: why Dr. Lieberman wanted to write this bookwhat dopamine is, its function in the brain and the structures that regulate its functiona comparison of the dopamine system with neurotransmitter systems that are thought to be more related to "here and now" psychological experiences (e.g., serotonin, oxytocin, endorphins etc.)the neurobiology & genetics of “dopamine-driven” personalities vs. more “here and now” personalities/temperaments and the benefit of having a diversity of personalities in society, the workplace, a relationship etc. how the information and/or goals pointed to by dopamine can be integrated into one's values to generate actionable wisdom, especially around long-term goals the connection between dopamine and mental disorders with a special focus on ADHD, including the effective treatment of ADHD with compounds that promote the release of dopamine within the brainthe potential for our society to create challenges with attention & concentration given the infinite potential for dopamine-driven distractionhow we can learn to be a responsible steward of our dopamine system in a world where there is increasingly unlimited access to food, sex, pornography, information, news, visual stimulation (YouTube, TikTok etc.)how to create a sense of future & achievement without falling prey to immediate gratificationDr. Lieberman's view of so-called "dopamine fasting" and his own self-compassionate journey with respect to managing various pulls related to dopamine whether “healthy” psychological processes can become addictions through the lens of dopamine (e.g., entrepreneurship, starting companies, forming/beginning relationships)the fascinating relationship between testosterone & dopamine Bio: Daniel Z. Lieberman, MD is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University, where he has earned awards for both teaching and research. He studied the Great Books at St. John's College and attended medical school at New York University. He is the coauthor of the international bestseller The Molecule of More, which has been translated into 20 languages, and the author of the recently published, Spellbound: Modern Science, Ancient Magic, and the Hidden Potential of the Unconscious Mind.

In the Market with Janet Parshall
Throughout the ages, there have been many misconceptions about mental illness –a lack of understanding and knowledge about serious illness, even among Christians. Today our guest, a Christian and a psychiatrist, will share accounts from the Old and New Testament, showing that: Serious mental illness - severe depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia - was likely present and relatively common in biblical times, displaying symptoms and issues similar to what we’re familiar with in the present day. He will also share why some instances of demon-possession and exorcisms as described in the Bible could be better explained as untreated mental illness. Join us for a fascinating conversation.
Why do people commit sex crimes? We often hear that they're not really motivated by sex and, instead, that they're about power and control. However, it's more complex than that, and understanding that complexity is key to preventing these crimes from happening in the first place. So let's talk about. This is the first episode in a two-part series on the psychology of sexual offending and what we can do to stop it. Today, we'll focus on the why question. In the next show, we'll focus on prevention. I am joined by Dr. Michael Seto, a registered clinical and forensic psychologist and a research director with the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group. He is also a Professor in Psychiatry at the University of Ottawa. Michael has published extensively on the subject of sexual offending, which includes the books Pedophilia and Sexual Offending Against Children and Internet Sex Offending. Some of the topics we discuss include: How common is sexual offending? What are some of the common challenges in studying sexual offending? How does sexual violence relate to sex, power, and control? What is the Motivation-Facilitation Model, and how can it help us to understand the psychology behind sex crimes? How is sexual fantasy related to sexual offending? How common is it for sex offenders to reoffend? And can we predict who is most likely to do so? Make sure to follow Michael on Twitter @MCSeto and learn more about his research here.

Crime Stories with Nancy Grace
Five friends set out from South Carolina to Mexico. Latavia "Tay" McGee , a mom of 6, wanted a tummy tuck. The surgical procedure to remove abdominal fat was scheduled with a doctor in Matamoros, just across the US/Mexico border. One of the friends stayed behind in a Brownsville, Texas hotel room. The woman didn't have the proper documentation to cross the border. The four Americans traveled to Matamoros from Brownsville in a rented white minivan. Shortly after they crossed the border, the mini van were fired. Reportedly rival drug cartels mistook the friends for Haitian drug smugglers. Two of the friends died in the attack. The other two were held captive for days in a remote region of the Gulf coast.

Diverse Thinking Different Learning
Many parents hesitate to jump to a medication treatment for their child's ADHD and ask about alternatives to medication. On this podcast, we have talked about different medication options but also behavioral therapies, mindfulness, and classroom accommodations, but today we're talking about an empirically supported non-medication treatment for ADHD and the results look very promising. Today's guest is Dr. Sandra Loo who researches Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation and its impact on ADHD symptoms in children ages 7-12 at UCLA. In today's episode, she describes what Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (TNS) is and how it works to generate brain activity. She also shares the benefits of the treatment and provides updates on how the study is going. It is a very exciting advance in non-medication treatment alternatives for children and you can reach out to Dr. Loo through the links below to participate in the study as well. Show Notes: [2:44] - The work Dr. Loo is doing with this new treatment is exciting and hopeful. [4:06] - Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation is the first FDA cleared treatment of ADHD of kids ages 7-12 years old. It's a mild stimulation that generates brain activity. Dr. Loo describes the process. [5:15] - After about 4 weeks of nightly stimulation, Dr. Loo has seen improvement in ADHD symptoms. [7:18] - Children on the older side of the 7-12 age range tend to feel comfortable putting the device on themselves. Dr. Loo explains what it might feel like for a child to wear. [9:16] - This isn't medication and results are slower than medication treatment. [10:22] - Improvements show the greatest results in inattention. [11:35] - Dr. Loo is also working on predictors that will help determine what treatment would be best for individual children. [13:08] - One observation from parents is that ADHD symptoms are better and that their child is less emotionally dysregulated. [15:45] - After 4 weeks in the study, they found that stopping the treatment did see an increase in the symptoms again. [17:37] - There are other goals for this treatment that are still being researched. [18:15] - There have not been any adverse side effects of this treatment and everyone responds differently. [20:47] - What are the comparisons to more common medication treatment results? [23:33] - All presentations of ADHD are welcome to participate in this study. [25:23] - Dr. Loo shares how to get more information and who to contact to participate, all of which are linked below. [30:26] - This is a multi-site study, also available in Washington.
