In this episode I speak with Dr. Jaime A. Pineda. Dr. Pineda is Professor Emeritus of Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, and Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, where he spent 28 years impacting and inspiring generations of undergraduate and graduate students to take on hard questions in the neurobiology of the human mind. He is the author of many widely cited papers in animal and human cognitive and systems neuroscience, including Mirror Neuron Systems: The Role of Mirroring Processes in Social Cognition (one of the most cited and downloaded books in the field). For the last twenty years, Jaime became interested in spiritual matters as a bridge to a fuller understanding of the mind. This led him to explore Zen Buddhism, train with a master teacher, and develop his creative side. He has published two books of poetry (Quieting of a Mind; Dawning of a New Mind) focusing on mind-brain relationships with an emphasis on spirituality, mysticism, environmentalism, and social activism. Most recently, he published his autobiography (Piercing the Cloud: Encountering the Real Me), the story of his journey and bridging of science and spirituality. In this episode we discuss Jaime's experience of immigrating to the U.S. at 9 years old, and how this planted the seed for his scientific and spiritual endeavors to understand the “self;” how Jaime understands “self” and its role in human suffering; the “self” from a developmental/evolutionary perspective; “spiritual crises” and how to harness them for growth; the neurobiology of “self;” Jaime's tips for quieting the “monkey mind;” getting in touch with the larger, unconscious, and transcendent “self;” and the importance of self-love and being a loving parent to oneself.

"The role that an analyst plays is so important in terms of how people can be wounded, shamed and hurt in a variety of different ways. We need to be very thoughtful about our own residual psychopathology because no analyst is perfectly analyzed. It's a lifelong stretch that we are going through to try to figure out what is bothering us with a particular patient."    Episode Description: We begin by describing the nature of feeling 'stuck' in a clinical situation. We consider the contributions from both sides of the couch and the role that internal and actual consultants can play in reintroducing an analyzing perspective on an encounter. Glen presents composite examples of colleagues who came to him for consultation especially around difficulties with sexual boundaries with patients. He has noted the hunger for love and loneliness as common themes in these analysts' lives. We discuss changes in our field regarding the focus on symptoms and the use of Zoom and we conclude with a discussion of what he feels is a more nuanced understanding of the termination process.    Our Guest: Glen Gabbard, MD is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and a training and supervising analyst at the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies in Houston. He is the author or editor of 29 books, including Love and Hate in the Analytic Setting, Textbook of Psychoanalysis, Boundaries and Boundary Violations, and The Psychology of the Sopranos. He is also the author of 365 scientific papers. He was awarded the Sigourney Award in 2000 and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Sapienza University in Rome in 2021.

Saj Razvi returns to BFTA to share and discuss a mind-blowing audio recording of a ketamine-facilitated somatic therapy session. This session was from a recent training workshop with experienced trauma therapists, and Saj uses a somatic exercise-- staring into the client/participant's eyes- as a way to elicit a rapid and powerful transference reaction, with the psycholytic catalysts of ketamine and oxytocin already on board.  We hear Saj handle the mounting fear and dread of the emerging traumatic transference, then work through this with the therapist in training to find nervous system resolution and safety on the other side.  In the latter part of the episode Saj and Craig explore the challenges of recognizing and working with transference.Saj Razvi and the Psychedelic Somatic Institutehttps://www.psychedelicsomatic.orgPlease take the BFTA listeners poll--we really want your input!https://bit.ly/3eQ8DdyBFTA on Instagram. @backfromtheabysspodcasthttps://www.instagram.com/backfromtheabysspodcast/BFTA/ Dr. Hhttps://www.craigheacockmd.com/podcast-page/

In this episode, we discuss issues that were problems long before anyone ever heard of COVID-19: alcohol use disorder and opioid overdose. Both seem to have gotten worse during the pandemic. Alcohol sales rose during the early days of lockdown, and they've remained high. Laura J. Bierut, MD, the Alumni Endowed Professor of Psychiatry, says another issue is that with some people losing their jobs while millions more have worked from home, some of the guardrails that have kept people from drinking too much have just gone away. She expects the fallout from the pandemic, in terms of alcohol use, will continue being felt for years to come. And just as the pandemic has fueled alcohol problems, deaths from drug overdoses have continued to climb, with more than 107,000 overdose deaths reported in the U.S. during a recent 12-month period. One issue, according to Kevin Xu, MD, a resident in psychiatry and Evan S. Schwarz, MD, an associate professor of emergency medicine and director of the Division of Medical Toxicology, is that many who use opioids are not prescribed a drug that can reduce cravings and lower risk of future overdose. That drug, buprenorphine, is prescribed for only about half of the patients treated for opioid use disorder, and it's used even less frequently in people who use opioids along with other substances, such as cocaine, alcohol or methamphetamine. The podcast, “Show Me the Science,” is produced by the Office of Medical Public Affairs at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Dr. Isom explains that this approach pathologizes Blackness, as it's intended to, and directs interventions and treatment in ways that do harm and perpetuate racism by incorrectly explaining health disparities as individual and biological rather than rooted in the systemic racism that creates inequity, stress, barriers to access, poor treatment, and that intersects with many other social determinants of health. She further details how this approach of pathologizing Blackness is deficit focused and promotes a deficit-based ideology and approach to addressing health disparities and the overall well-being of Black people. We talk about how whiteness and Western/Eurocentricity shows up in mental health, including the DSM, and Dr. Isom shares how she navigates this in her clinical work. She also shares her thoughts on Black healing and joy. I hope this conversation inspires you to action. @drjessisommdmph (Twitter/IG/Clubhouse) https://www.linkedin.com/in/jessica-elizabeth-isom-12ba54a2 www.vision4equity.com

Episode 149 – Curt Thompson joins Stephanie to share in the experience of delighting in the glory of God through our eponymous series. They discuss the role of beauty in our identity—its creation and our awareness of it. They discuss the importance of crushing in our lives—how beauty often needs to be pulverized in order to attain its purpose, and how spice often delivers its best flavors and fragrance when heated and crushed. They ponder the importance to taste and see that the Lord is good—how sensing precedes our making sense of what we are sensing, and the importance of the five senses in our relationship with God and with one another. They dive into the cultural nuances of our brain formation and our mind transformation. They talk about shame, and desire, and delight, and beauty Curt invites us to experience Psalm 27:4 through the lens of delight in the glory of God: One thing I ask from the Lord,     this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord     all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord     and to seek him in his temple. (NIV, Biblica) Finally, Curt invites us to “practice for heaven” and to discover what it means and how to train our hearts and minds to become ready for the indescribable beauty of delight in the glory of God for all of eternity. MEET CURT THOMPSON Curt Thompson (MD, Wright State University) is a board-certified psychiatrist and the founder of Being Known, an organization that develops resources for hope and healing at the intersection of neuroscience and Christian spiritual formation. He is also the author of The Soul of Shame, The Soul of Desire, and Anatomy of the Soul. Inspired by deep compassion for others and informed from a Christian perspective, psychiatrist Curt Thompson shares fresh insights and practical applications for developing more authentic relationships and fully experiencing our deepest longing: to be known. With a considerable dose of warmth (and surprising measure of humor), Curt weaves together an understanding of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) and a Christian view of what it means to be human — to educate and encourage others as they seek to fulfill their intrinsic desire to feel known, valued and connected. He understands that deep, authentic relationships are essential to experiencing a healthier, more purposeful life — but the only way to realize this is to begin telling our stories more truly. Curt's unique insights about how the brain affects and processes relationships help people discover a fresh perspective and practical applications to foster healthy and vibrant lives, allowing them to get unstuck and move toward the next beautiful thing they're being called to make. Through his workshops, speaking engagements, books, organizational consulting, private clinical practice and other platforms, he helps people process their longings, grief, identity, purpose, perspective of God and perspective of humanity, inviting them to engage more authentically with their own stories and their relationships. Only then can they can feel truly known and connected and live into the meaningful reality they desire to create. Thompson is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and his main focus of clinical and research interest has been the integration of psychiatry, its associated disciplines, and Christian spiritual formation. He is actively engaged in learning and teaching as he supervises clinical employees and facilitates ongoing education groups for patients and colleagues. He also speaks frequently on the topic at workshops, conferences, and retreats. Serving as an elder at Washington Community Fellowship in Washington, DC, his duties have included preaching, teaching, and participation in the fellowship's healing prayer ministry. He and his wife, Phyllis, a licensed clinical social worker, are the parents of two children and reside in Arlington, Virginia.

Does this concept strike you as reserved for spiritual contemplatives? What if, instead, it proved the highly practical, deeply foundational perspective you need right now? Why does God's glory even matter in our day and age? How can we learn from Jesus to make His glory our true North and lifelong quest? What keeps us from fully stepping into this God-ordained purpose for our life? How do we kindle delight for God on a daily basis? And, once we have embraced God's glory as our heart's true delight, how can we then come alongside others? Join us to cultivate a sincere delight for God's glory, rooted in an honest, hard look at the depth of our need, and in the much deeper Reality of His grace. Trace the glory of God through Scripture and in your own life. Behold the exact radiance of God's glory, revealed in Jesus. Learn to see yourself as Christ does—through the lens of the Father's love at the cross. Jesus offers to overwhelm our deadly self-centeredness with His resurrection power. He carries us every step of the way, even as He calls us to true humility on the path to glory. Who has time to cultivate the delight that comes from pondering the glory of God? And yet, nothing could be more urgent today. Marthas and Marys, Peters and Johns—we are all invited to dare to dream of a lifestyle of God-centered delight. Nothing could be more practical.

Matthew Siegel, MD, Director of the Developmental Disorders Program, Maine Behavioral Health, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics of Tufts University and Faculty Scientist, MMC Research Institute His program provides a continuum of care for people with severe autism, including outpatient services providing a range of services, and a 12-bed inpatient unit that serves youth age 20 and under. Patients usually have a coexisting psychiatric disorders and exhibit unsafe behaviors. The inpatient stay is usually about 30-40 days. They also have a partial inpatient program for part of the day in addition to an in-home program for very young children. The new Glickman Lauder Center of Excellence in Autism and Developmental Disorders brings treatment under one roof. Highlights: • The number of these inpatient units has increased to about 15-18 across the country, though that's not enough by any means. (NCSA is developing this list and will place it on the NCSAutism.org website). Some are listed here. • A new clinical group is focused on developing best practices — they will provide a list of resources too. • Excellent work from multiple disciplines is needed to address severe behaviors, which have various roots. • The first few days in inpatient are devoted to observation, often stripping away medications, then building a plan including a behavior plan, speech, OT. • They are looking for a decrease in behaviors over time, not just reacting to the past 24 hours. They look for a lowering of intensity in behaviors, taking much data (it's an ABA-based program) and analyzing. People don't tend to go to zero, but safe enough to be discharged, with in-home services, usually funded by Medicaid. They work to transfer the behavior plan to them. About 1/3 of the patients do not return home but go to a group setting. A portion of patients are still not safe even after a comprehensive treatment program — they cannot live with parents and need a facility or residence staffed and able to handle those behaviors. • A dire lack of step-down options for those who need intensive care. In Maine, there was no change to reimbursement for 10 years, and after Covid there is an intensified staffing shorting. Now there are 2 places in the entire state, and they are full. And out of state, they are full too. Right now the system is entirely paralyzed. People can't get out of the hospital, and others can't get in. • The program had been spread across multiple sites, but now thanks to a large donation they have created The Glickman-Lauder Center, which also includes serving adults as outpatients. A very exciting step. They also do research and training. Having an excellent center does a lot to support research and training. • Research: How well is this population being attended to by the research community? They surveyed all the treatment studies over the past 20 years, and found the inclusion of people with severe autism has dropped dramatically; 2/3 of studies are not looking at severe autism. One could argue that those who are most severely affected should receive the most attention in research. • We can't let the desire to be inclusive to get in the way of attending to the needs of severe autism.

Regular blueberry consumption may reduce risk of dementia, study finds University of Cincinnati, May 11, 2022 Researchers found that adding blueberries to the daily diets of certain middle-aged populations may lower the chances of developing late-life dementia. The findings were recently published in the journal Nutrients.  Krikorian said his team has been conducting research on the benefits of berries for people with greater risk for Alzheimer's disease and dementia for several years.  The researchers enrolled 33 patients from around the Cincinnati area between the ages of 50-65 who were overweight, prediabetic and had noticed mild memory decline with aging. Krikorian said this population has an increased risk for late-life dementia and other common conditions.  Over a period of 12 weeks, the patients were asked to abstain from berry fruit consumption of any kind except for a daily packet of supplement powder to be mixed with water and consumed either with breakfast or dinner. Half of the participants received powders that contained the equivalent of one-half cup of whole blueberries, while the other half received a placebo.  Krikorian said those in the blueberry-treated group showed improvement on cognitive tasks that depend on executive control.   Patients in the blueberry group also had lower fasting insulin levels, meaning the participants had improved metabolic function and were able to more easily burn fat for energy.   Krikorian said the blueberry group displayed an additional mild degree of higher mitochondrial uncoupling, a cellular process that has been associated with greater longevity and reduced oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can lead to symptoms like fatigue and memory loss.  Regular exercise with dietary advice linked to better mobility in frail older people Yale University, May 11, 2022 A program of regular exercise along with expert dietary advice is linked to a reduction in mobility problems among frail older people living in the community, finds a trial published by The BMJ today. The combination of aerobic (walking), strength, flexibility, and balance exercises alongside personalized nutritional counseling reduced mobility disability by 22% over three years. Their findings are based on 1,519 men and women (average age 79 years) with physical frailty and sarcopenia (a combination of reduced physical function and low muscle mass) recruited from 16 clinical sites across 11 European countries between 2016 and 2019. Women in the intervention group lost less muscle strength (0.9 kg at 24 months) and less muscle mass (0.24 kg and 0.49 kg at 24 months and 36 months, respectively) than control women, but no significant group differences were seen in men.  Study: Side effects emerge after approval for many US Yale University, May 9, 2022  Almost one-third of new drugs approved by U.S. regulators over a decade ended up years later with warnings about unexpected, sometimes life-threatening side effects or complications, a newanalysis found. The results covered all 222 prescription drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over ten yers.  The 71 flagged drugs included top-sellers for treating depression, arthritis, infections and blood clots. Safety issues included risks for serious skin reactions, liver damage, cancer and even death. “The large percentage of problems was a surprise,” and they included side effects not seen during the review process, said Dr. Joseph Ross, the study's lead author at Yale University.”We know that safety concerns, new ones, are going to be identified once a drug is used in a wider population. That's just how it is,” Ross said.  While most safety concerns were not serious enough to prompt recalls, the findings raise questions about how thoroughly drugs are tested before approval The study counted black-box warnings for dozens of drugs; these involved serious problems including deaths or life-threatening conditions linked with the drugs. There were also dozens of alerts for less serious potential harms and three drug withdrawals because of the potential for death or other serious harm. Among the drugs with added warnings: Humira, used for arthritis and some other illnesses; Abilify, used for depression and other mental illness; and Pradaxa, a blood thinner. The withdrawn drugs and the reason: Bextra, an anti-inflammatory medicine, heart problems; Raptiva, a psoriasis drug, rare nervous system illness; and Zelnorm, a bowel illness drug, heart problems. Exercise during pregnancy may yield metabolic benefits in grandchildren Harvard University, May 11, 2022 If grandma liked working out, her pain may be your gain. It may seem unlikely, but recent research out of the Joslin Diabetes Center says it just might be the case. Laurie Goodyear, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, has found that a grandmother's exercise during pregnancy may make her grandchildren healthier metabolically, with less body fat, better insulin control and, in some, healthier bones. We are looking for epigenetic alterations in the DNA, because epigenetic alterations can be changed as rapidly as two generations. We analyze micro RNAs, some methylation situations in the F1 generation eggs and sperm to see what's going on. We are currently investigating how mothers' exercise affects their children's gametes. I'm confident in saying that women who are pregnant should try to be as physically active as they can, depending, of course, on the condition of their pregnancy. There's strong human data showing that exercise during pregnancy improves the mother's health; numerous animal studies showing improved first-generation health; and now we have evidence that maternal exercise will positively impact the health of the second generation. I'm not an obstetrician, and there are certainly conditions where a woman cannot perform exercise during pregnancy, but, when medically approved, being physically active is important—for the mother, the first generation, and now even the grandchildren. New Study Finds Simply Believing You Can Do Something To Improve It Is Linked With Higher Wellbeing University Of Southern Denmark And University Of Copenhagen, May 11, 2022 The number of people struggling with poor mental health and mental disorders has been rising around the world over the past few decades. Those who are struggling are increasingly facing difficulties accessing the kind of support they need – leaving many waiting months for help, if they even qualify for treatment. In our recent study, we asked 3,015 Danish adults to fill out a survey that asked questions about mental health – such as whether they believe they can do something to keep mentally healthy, whether they had done something in the past two weeks to support their mental health, and also whether they were currently struggling with a mental health problem. We then assessed their level of mental wellbeing using the Short Warwick–Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale, which is widely used by healthcare professionals and researchers to measure mental wellbeing. As you'd expect, we found that mental wellbeing was highest among those who had done things to improve their mental health compared with the other participants. Interestingly, however, we found that – whether or not our respondents had actually taken action to improve their mental wellbeing – people who believed they could do something to keep mentally healthy tended to have higher mental wellbeing than those who didn't have this belief. So while it's most beneficial to take steps to improve your mental health, even just believing that you can improve it is associated with better overall mental wellbeing.The effect of night shifts—gene expression fails to adapt to new sleep patterns McGill University (Quebec).  May 7, 2022  Have you ever considered that working night shifts may, in the long run, have an impact on your health? A team of researchers from the McGill University has discovered that genes regulating important biological processes are incapable of adapting to new sleeping and eating patterns and that most of them stay tuned to their daytime biological clock rhythms. “We now better understand the molecular changes that take place inside the human body when sleeping and eating behaviours are in sync with our biological clock. For example, we found that the expression of genes related to the immune system and metabolic processes did not adapt to the new behaviours,” says Dr. Boivin, a full professor at McGill University's Department of Psychiatry. It is known that the expression of many of these genes varies over the course of the day and night. Their repetitive rhythms are important for the regulation of many physiological and behavioural processes. “Almost 25% of the rhythmic genes lost their biological rhythm after our volunteers were exposed to our night shift simulation. 73% did not adapt to the night shift and stayed tuned to their daytime rhythm. And less than 3% partly adapted to the night shift schedule. “We think the molecular changes we observed potentially contribute to the development of health problems like diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases more frequently seen in night-shift workers on the long term,” explains Dr. Boivin.  Videos: 1. Will the Future Be Human? – Yuval Noah Harari (Start @ 2:13) 2. The Invention Of Whiteness.. (Start @ 0:28) 3. Jonathan Pie's Rant On Cultural Appropriation 4. Breakthrough deaths comprise increasing proportion of those who died from COVID-19 (5:44)
