On this episode of The Dr. Tyna Show, I am delighted to interview my new friend Seerut K Chawla. Originally from India, Seerut is a Psychotherapist who lives in London. She's practiced in the NHS, and now runs her own private practice. She has a special interest in personal responsibility & resilience and now teaches that in an online membership. You can see why I adore her. I'm a huge fan and have followed her for some time on Instagram and we finally got to sit down for a candid conversation. The best part is that we don't live in the same echo chamber and don't agree on all things, but having interesting and thoughtful conversation with intelligent and emotionally mature people is the BEST. And we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I hope you enjoy this episode as well. As always, if you have any questions for the show please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In this episode, I talk to renowned neuroscientist Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett about emotions and the brain. She reveals what the true function of the brain is⎯and it's not for thinking. We also discuss the impact of past experiences on our cognition and what we can do to overcome our own detrimental patterns. Further into our discussion, Dr. Lisa challenges the traditionally held view that emotions are universal. In her own theory of constructed emotion, she argues that variability in emotional expression exists due to socialization and language differences. We also touch on the topics of hallucinogens, culture, education, relationships, and authoritarianism.BioDr. Lisa Feldman Barrett is among the top one percent most-cited scientists in the world for her revolutionary research in psychology and neuroscience. She is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University. She also holds appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, where she is Chief Science Officer for the Center for Law, Brain & Behavior.Her books include Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain and How Emotions are Made. She has published over 240 peer-reviewed, scientific papers appearing in Science, Nature Neuroscience, and other top journals. Dr. Barrett has been called “the most important affective scientist of our time”.Website: lisafeldmanbarrett.comTwitter: @LFeldmanBarrettTopics00:00:27 Lisa's interest in clinical psychology00:03:14 A biological approach to emotions00:05:32 Why do we have a neocortex? 00:14:01 The default mode network00:19:27 The brain is not for thinking00:22:48 The rise of authoritarianism during chaos00:29:52 Psychological entropy00:33:26 Predictions are based from past experiences 00:42:23 The mind-brain problem00:44:36 Relationships are reflexive00:50:02 Emotional expression isn't universal00:56:53 Why you shouldn't trust psychology textbooks 01:01:20 Reaching out to Paul Ekman 01:08:53 The theory of constructed emotion01:15:43 The role of socialization and language in emotions 01:20:13 The never-ending domain-general vs domain-specific debate in cognitive science

When you hear about influence, maybe you think of influential people or you immediately think of social media influencers. Have you considered, however, your own influence? To varying degrees we all have some level of influence over someone or something. You probably have more influence than you take credit for and acknowledge. So, how are you using your influential power and do you know when and how to activate it and get the most out of it?Evy Poumpouras, a former secret service agent, is sharing her own strategies of influence so that you can find creative ways to connect with people and stop getting steamrolled over. Having influence and knowing how to activate that influence is another ingredient for becoming unstoppable.

In this episode it's time to add another layer and look at how to effectively off balance people's perception of you and better adjust and navigate to the people and situations all around.You can use these strategies to get people to say yes, stay in the forefront of their mind, and connect in a more authentic way.Influential Terms:Priming: exposure to one stimulus influences how a person respondsReciprocity: exchange of something between two or more people where something is givenStereotype: widely held and oversimplified idea of a particular type of person or thingCommon Ground: opinions or interests shared by two or more peopleIf you didn't catch it the 1st time:1st Episode of Unstoppable, Be Confident As Hell: https://youtu.be/kZ7R1T2GCQA 2nd Episode of Unstoppable, Use Your Voice: https://youtu.be/_vG_OcS5QiA SHOW NOTES:Priming | Tips for priming people you need to influence [0:57]Pink Is Life | How to influence Evy into wearing pink on set [12:32]Do Something for Them | Evy explains the idea of reciprocity [14:35] Branding | The way you see yourself vs. the way others see you [24:08]Swag Bag | Lisa reveals what's inside Women Of Impact's Swag Bag [31:27]Common Ground | How to find common ground or create it [33:28]Influence in Action | Evy shows how all these strategies work [48:32]QUOTES:“This is not about manipulating people, this is about setting you up so that you understand people, understand behavior and put them in a space where they feel comfortable and feel connected to you.” Evy Poumpouras [6:34]“As long as you're not manipulating or as long as You just don't want this stuff to come off as disingenuous when you use influence techniques” Evy Poumpouras [41:35]“We are resistant to things we don't understand, we are negative towards things we don't know, and we really want to break down those barriers and find the threads that connect us.” Evy Poumpouras [46:25]“If you can just simplify people and find ways to connect and find that human element [...] how can I make you feel good about being with me and because I do that now I've influenced you to want to have a relationship with me.” Evy Poumpouras [48:12]

This week, in Dingess, West Virginia, the brutality is striking, when a woman's body is found, murdered, several times over, in a shallow grave, covered with twigs, but it's obvious that this was just the last stop, on a horrific ride. After rumors begin to swirl around this small town, the perpetrators of this heinous attack are brought to light, but their fingers are pointing in so many different directions, that it's hard to know who is telling the truth. One thing is for sure, and that's multiple people need to pay the price for what happened! Plus, an extra bonus short murder story, also from the backwoods of West Virginia, that is just as crazy as the main story! Along the way, we find out that just because the town is named after you, doesn't mean you aren't trash, that some people have the capacity to inflict absolute horrors upon others, and that we have the best audience in podcasting!!

The Impact of Quality Jobs (1:00) The definition of a coach is someone in a position of authority over others. They can be everything from CEOs, directors, and athletic coaches and are the primary factor of their workplace environment. Employees want three things: they want to know that they are valued, they want to know that the work they do has meaning, and they want great coaching. 89% of bosses believe employees quit because they want more money, while only 12% report leaving for that reason. 57% leave jobs to get away from their managers. 58% of people say they trust strangers more than they trust their own boss. Only a reported 15% of the global workforce is engaged with their jobs. Engagement means they like what they do because they're developing rich missions and purposes. Not to mention, people with great jobs have different life outcomes: Grow their business and inspire teams. Solve problems instead of creating them Volunteer for their communities. Better health, wellbeing, and quality of their personal life. Fostering Great Workplace Culture (4:45) When most CEOs and high-level leaders see that data, it leads them to ask what changes can they make to align their workplace culture with what their workforce wants to keep them engaged. The interesting part is Gallup's finding that the manager determines 70% of team engagement. Clever benefit packages, remote working possibilities, trip incentives, flexible hours, and cool gifts are great, but they don't change growth outcomes. What does is your ratio of great to lousy managers. If you have 30 managers, and of those managers, 30% are great, 20% are lousy, and 50% are mediocre, you'd reach about the national average of employee engagement in the US. Nothing could sustainably and authentically change the value of your organization more than improving that ratio. Great managers can maximize the potential of every team member they manage and deliver the best job and life imaginable for today's workforce. People want a coach, and they want a coach able to impact their life. The Perfect Coach (8:30) Several days ago, Ed was asked a question he had a lot of fun answering: if you could build the perfect coach in terms of a front-line leader in a business setting, what would that look like? First, there is no such thing as a perfect coach. The best kind of coach can recognize their flaws and continue to work on them while leveraging their strengths. Second, they are passionate about their opportunity to impact their peoples' days because they understand their workforce's experience at work will affect every area of their life- family, health, livelihood, etc. A great coach is value-based and purpose-driven. They align themselves completely with their singleness of purpose and communicate it to their workforce in their team's shared language. In doing so, they contribute to their team's overall psychological safety. Psychological safety does not necessarily mean being a soft leader. Ed's ideal coach would have a tireless work ethic, consistent focus on building resiliency, and would play to win in every aspect of their lives. They would set high standards they hold not just their teams accountable to, but themselves as well, and have the ability to take the journey alongside their team members. They understand people, what motivates them, their performance and leadership style, and building relationships. They are fun to work for, yet know when to push their people outside their comfort zone or pull back into encouragement and support. Everyone will know what the best coach stands for and what to expect daily: positive energy, positive attitudes, empathy, enthusiasm, directions, creativity, and resilience. Their team would understand they are in with them, not alongside them, and values commitment over interest, conviction over complacency, and winning over losing. An ideal coach is focused on the development of others and not only interested in talent. They do everything in their power to set their team up for success, will know what success means to them, and how to define victory. Becoming A High-Impact Coach (13:00) Ed believes a team is a direct reflection of their coach and whatever qualities their coach embodies. High-impact coaches inspire their team to achieve things they never thought possible and build a culture worth fighting for. Not only do high-impact coaches attract the top talent, develop and retain the top talent, and get them to fight for each other to win. The first step is identifying strengths and where you have gaps in your coaching. Additionally, take the Athletics of Business Assessment to see where you fall in victory-driven leadership. Some of the best athletic recruiters Ed had were current and former players because they could share their experiences and the differences they made in their lives. Looking back on the stories we tell from years ago, they are almost always shared moments and not about the games. Good coaching is a responsibility and an honor. But, to do it, you have to commit yourself to consistently working on your own game. If you want your people to have grit, you have to have grit. If you want them to have a positive attitude, you have to have a positive attitude. And you have to work every day to exceed your own standards. What you'll learn in this episode: What employees want in a job and why they often leave. What the perfect coach looks like. How to foster better workplace culture. How to become a better coach.

If you're looking to hear a slew of above average Sean Connery impressions...then we have the podcast for you! We take our first ever dive into the canon of Alfred Hitchcock with his late career masterpiece from 1964, Marnie. But first: this week's Blue Plate Special has us gobbling up the sumptuous new release Spencer before we take issue with both the meme-ification of film culture and the nonstop media coverage of and obsession with the Smith family. Upon eventually getting around to Marnie, we reflect on the place Hitchcock's filmography in not only the larger history of film but our own lives and how this film's leering brilliance plays into some of the director's most problematic aesthetic impulses.

Alison Gaylin joins Carol Fitzgerald to talk about her latest thriller, The Collective, which looks at a collision of grief, obsession, and rage amongst a group of women who have lost their children at the hands of murderers. Camille, who tragically lost her daughter, is approached by a woman who says, “I know who you are. I know how you feel.” From there, she senses a kinship with the people in The Collective. Camille tries to decide if the woman of The Collective are truly avenging angels or monsters. Alison shares how she researched this dark topic, including her view on the dark web. She talks about ramping up the tension, confessing to scaring herself a few times as she wrote. They also talk about monsters, both real and imagined. The ending is one that Carol did not see coming.

Only a small percentage of people who have attempted to be astronauts have succeeded. The training and physical requirements are extremely stringent. This is because billions of dollars and many lives are at stake for the smallest mistake. Another component is what motivates someone to put themselves at risk.

Many of us have experienced the damaging effects of religious indoctrination, and hearing the stories of others help us feel less alone and heal just a little bit more. In this episode, Amanda Rose shares how a cult forced her into intense modesty and purity culture as a child, how this has effected her sexuality as a woman, and how she is healing. May this sweet soul be a mirror revealing that you too have the power to love your body, feel safe in your sexuality, and feel whole, regardless how traumatic, sheltered, or confining the past may have been. Amanda spent her childhood on a family farm in Florida, where she was raised by a very loving and dysfunctional family. Think... "The Yearling" meets "The Waltons" meets "Cheaper By The Dozen" meets "Duck Dynasty"...and you've basically got it! When she was 12 years old, her family moved to Central America. That's where this hillbilly of a gal was plunged deep into a cult and was subjected to rigorous religious brainwashing. Psychological, spiritual, physical, and emotional abuse...she knows it all too well. Amanda sunk into a dark well of patriarchal purity culture and oppressive submission dogma to put it mildly. Her adolescent experiences in Central America and in the religious cult spun the narrative that women were not to be trusted, especially with men or in relationships. A woman's body was dangerous at best and property at worst, and sex was just to meet a mans "needs." Her journey out of that cult and through her healing path has been wild and crazy, but it's led her to where she is now. Today Amanda works with women who are ready for the initiation into their feminine radiance, and sovereign, embodied self leadership in the three arenas of: - sexuality and embodied sensuality - healing from trauma on a somatic and quantum level - rewilding your soul and reconnecting you to your wombspace This episode covers topics like: -saving sex until AFTER marriage -going from modesty culture being covered from head to toe to loving her body fully -what's it like to be indoctrinated into a cult in your teenage years -"safe sex" is more than just about physical protection, but emotional connection -spiritual abuse and oppression over women -the harmfulness of purity culture and conservative Christianity -how purity culture and submission teachings/dogma affects your marriages, honeymoons, and sex -what is sexual embodiment? -how can sexual embodiment help women heal that are coming out of purity culture? -the common thread between orgasm and worship Stay in touch with Amanda: Follow on IG: https://www.instagram.com/amandaarlenerose Join her group coaching container: https://www.mywombspace.com Learn more about Amanda's work: https://www.wholenessmirroring.com I hope you benefit from ENLIGHTENED, the podcast by me, Sophia Spallino, an audible experience that leaves you feeling at peace, encouraged, and in touch with your soul.

If you have to, snap yourself to remind yourself that there's always a different perspective. STANDOUT QUOTES “When it's hard, we can't tap out. We just can't say ‘Let's remove the difficult stimulus in our lives.' We have to learn to deal with it.” -Dr. Amber Selking [01:27] “That's really the power of diversity, that it brings different perspectives to the table. It allows us to see things more fully, more completely.” -Dr. Amber Selking [06:43] “Psychological flexibility allows us to not only know that there are different perspectives in any situation, but also see through the lens of others that there is more to the situation or moment or person than might be available to us from our own perspective.” -Dr. Amber Selking [07:59] “If we are psychologically rigid, we are unable to navigate and manage and go through and about those different life demands that we have, the desires that we have, the needs that we have.” -Dr. Amber Selking [08:35] Please get on iTunes to rate us and write a review for us!

Ready to take your brain health to the next level? Ready to be proactive, or even reverse, the signs of brain aging? Then this episode is definitely for you! We are fortunate to have “Amazon” John Easterling, Plant Medicine Formulator, with us again this week. He dives into the plant medicine treasures he's found in the Amazon Rainforest that beautifully support healthy brain function and help you ward off brain aging. ABOUT “AMAZON JOHN” EASTERLING Since 1976 John Easterling has been an explorer and treasure hunter in the Amazon Rainforest. It was there, after a personal health crisis, he was introduced to the traditional use of medicinal plants by the Indigenous People in Peru. Since then his passion for plant medicine has only accelerated. Easterling's original degree is in Environmental Studies, he founded the Amazon Herb Company in 1990 and serves on the board of the Amazon Center of Environmental Education and Research. Amazon John's 28 years of Plant Medicine experience have been profiled on TV and Radio including “Good Morning America” and “Fox and Friends”. His product formulations have sold over $100 million worldwide. John has been featured in two PBS documentaries, World News Report “Amazon John and Rainforest Medicines” and Jean Michel Cousteau's “Return to the Amazon.” Easterling believes the dramatic growth and interest in plant medicine is still in its early stages and will continue to significantly improve life experiences and healthy outcomes into the future.

It's a kind of inflammatory response from your brain to protect itself sometimes, developing this amyloid plaquing to seal off what it sees as an insult. Involvement of Candida in brain issues. Recent research showed was that people did not think before that the Candida could cross the blood brain barrier. Now they found that it actually can. It travels through your body doing that, looking for a place to reside where the biological terrain is right. If you introduce a lot of sugar and a lot of carbs into that terrain, they really love that. When these Candida cross that blood brain barrier, the brain recognizes that as an insult, and then you have this coating process. The brain will try to coat that to seal it off. Prevention Lifestyle and diet – low sugar, more green vegetables Probiotics after a course of antibiotics – maintain a diverse colony-forming units of probiotics.

Join Dr. Peter to go way below the surface and find the hidden meanings of obsessions, compulsions and OCD. Through poetry and quotes, he invites you into the painful, distressing, fearful and misunderstood world of those who suffer from OCD. He defines obsessions and compulsions, discusses the different types of each, and evaluates two conventional treatments and one alternative treatment for OCD. Most importantly, he discusses the deepest natural causes of OCD, which are almost always disregarded in conventional treatment, which focuses primarily on the symptoms. Lead-in OCD is not a disease that bothers; it is a disease that tortures. - Author: J.J. Keeler “It can look like still waters on the outside while a hurricane is swirling in your mind.” — Marcie Barber Phares Poetry or word picture (prayer of the scrupulous) Aditi Apr 2017 Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. OCD. That is what we are addressing today. Here is what OCD is like for Toni Neville -- she says: “It's like being controlled by a puppeteer. Every time you try and just walk away he pulls you back. Are you sure the stove is off and everything is unplugged? Back up we go. Are you sure your hands are as clean as they can get? Back ya go. Are you sure the doors are securely locked? Back down we go. How many people have touched this object? Wash your hands again.” Introduction We are together in this great adventure, this podcast, Interior Integration for Catholics, we are journeying together, and I am honored to be able to spend this time with you. I am Dr. Peter Malinoski, clinical psychologist and passionate Catholic and together, we are taking on the tough topics that matter to you. We bring the best of psychology and human formation and harmonize it with the perennial truths of the Catholic Faith. Interior Integration for Catholics is part of our broader outreach, Souls and Hearts bringing the best of psychology grounded in a Catholic worldview to you and the rest of the world through our website soulsandhearts.com Today, we are getting into obsessions and compulsions -- a really deep dive into what's really going on with these experiences. I know many of you were expecting me to discuss scrupulosity today -- And you know what? I was expecting I would be discussing scrupulosity well, but in order to have that discussion of scrupulosity be well-founded, we really need to get into understanding obsessions and compulsions first. I have to bring you up to speed on obessions and compulsions before we get into scrupulosity, and there is a lot to know The questions we will be covering about obsessions and compulsions. What are Obsession and Compulsions? Getting into definitions. Also What are the different types of obsessions and compulsions, the different forms that obsessions and compulsions can take What is the experience of OCD like? From those who have suffered it. Who suffers from obsessions and compulsions -- how common are they? Who is at risk? Why do obsessions and compulsions start and why do they keep going? How do we overcome obsessions and compulsions? How do we resolve them? What does the secular literature say are the best treatments" -- Medication and a particular kind of therapy called Exposure and Response Prevention Alternatives Can we find not just a descriptive diagnosis, but a proscriptive conceptualization that gives a direction for healing, resolving the obsessions and compulsions Not just symptom management. Definitions Obsessions DSM-5: Obsessions are defined by (1) and (2): Recurrent and persistent thoughts, urges, or impulses that are experienced, at some time during the disturbance, as intrusive and unwanted, and that in most individuals cause marked anxiety or distress. The individual attempts to ignore or suppress such thoughts, urges, or images, or to neutralize them with some other thought or action (i.e., by performing a compulsion). Not pleasurable Involuntary My compulsive thoughts aren't even thoughts, they're absolute certainties and obeying them isn't a choice. - Author: Paul Rudnick To resist a compulsion with willpower alone is to hold back an avalanche by melting the snow with a candle. It just keeps coming and coming and coming. - Author: David Adam Individual works to neutralize the obsession with another thought or a compulsion. From the International OCD Foundation: Obsessions are thoughts, images or impulses that occur over and over again and feel outside of the person's control. Individuals with OCD do not want to have these thoughts and find them disturbing. In most cases, people with OCD realize that these thoughts don't make any sense. Obsessions are typically accompanied by intense and uncomfortable feelings such as fear, disgust, doubt, or a feeling that things have to be done in a way that is “just right.” In the context of OCD, obsessions are time consuming and get in the way of important activities the person values.

Obsessions about your Sexual Orientation Obsessions about being embarrassed in a public situation Getting a non-communicable disease such as cancer Superstitious ideas such as unlucky numbers or certain colors Religious Obsessions (Scrupulosity) Concern with offending God Concerns about blasphemy Concerns about right and wrong, morality. Compulsions Definitions DSM-5 Compulsions are defined by (1) and (2): Repetitive behaviors (e.g., hand washing, ordering, checking) or mental acts (e.g., praying, counting, repeating words silently) that the individual feels driven to perform in response to an obsession or according to rules that must be applied rigidly. The behaviors or mental acts are aimed at preventing or reducing anxiety or distress, or preventing some dreaded event or situation; however, these behaviors or mental acts are not connected in a realistic way with what they are designed to neutralize or prevent, or are clearly excessive. Most people with OCD have both obsessions and compulsions. From the International OCD Foundation Compulsions are the second part of obsessive compulsive disorder. These are repetitive behaviors or thoughts that a person uses with the intention of neutralizing, counteracting, or making their obsessions go away. People with OCD realize this is only a temporary solution but without a better way to cope they rely on the compulsion as a temporary escape. Compulsions can also include avoiding situations that trigger obsessions. Compulsions are time consuming and get in the way of important activities the person values.

Repeatedly going back to check if you ran someone over DSM-5 Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Presence of obsessions, compulsions, or both: The obsessions or compulsions are time-consuming (e.g., take more than 1 hour per day) or cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. The obsessive-compulsive symptoms are not attributable to the physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication) or another medical condition. The disturbance is not better explained by the symptoms of another mental disorder Specify if: With good or fair insight: The individual recognizes that obsessive-compulsive disorder beliefs are definitely or probably not true or that they may or may not be true. With poor insight: The individual thinks obsessive-compulsive disorder beliefs are probably true. With absent insight/delusional beliefs: The individual is completely convinced that obsessive-compulsive disorder beliefs are true. 4% With Tic disorder up to 30% What is the experience of OCD Poem By Forti.no Quotes: “You lose time.

With OCD, it's like Doubt has its own control console.” — Josey Eloy Franco “Imagine all your worst thoughts as a soundtrack running through your mind 24/7, day after day.” — Adam Walker Cleveland “Picture standing in a room filled with flies and pouring a bottle of syrup over yourself. The flies constantly swarm about you, buzzing around your head and in your face. You swat and swat, but they keep coming. The flies are like obsessional thoughts — you can't stop them, you just have to fend them off. The swatting is like compulsions — you can't resist the urge to do it, even though you know it won't really keep the flies at bay more than for a brief moment.” — Cheryl Little Sutton “It's like you have two brains — a rational brain and an irrational brain. And they're constantly fighting.” — Emilie Ford Who 12 month prevalence is 1.2% with international prevalence rates from 1.1 to 1.8% NIH Women have a higher prevalence 1.8% than men 0.5%.

Streptococcal infection can precede the development of OCD symptoms in children Therapy Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) -- Developed originally in the 1970s Stanley Rachman's work a type of behavioral therapy that exposes the person to situations that provoke their obsessions causing distress, usually anxiety which leads to the urge to engage in the compulsion that gives them the temporary relief. The goal of ERP is to break the cycle of obsessions --> anxiety --> compulsion --> temporary relief. So you are exposed to you anxiety provoking stimulus, and have the obsession, but you prevent the compulsive response, and you don't get the temporary relief. Basic premise: As individuals confront their fears and no longer engage in their escape response, they will eventually reduce their anxiety. The goal is to habituate, or get used to the feelings of the obsessions, without having to engage in the compulsive behavior. This increases the capacity to handle discomfort and anxiety. Then one is no longer reinforced by the temporary anxiety relief that the compulsion provides. Patrick Carey writes that: Any behavior that engages with the obsession– e.g. asking for reassurance, avoidance, rumination– reinforces it. By preventing these behaviors, ERP teaches people that they can tolerate their distress without turning to compulsions. It thereby drains obsessions of their power. Division 12 of the APA Essence of therapy: Individuals with OCD repeatedly confront the thoughts, images, objects, and situations that make them anxious and/or start their obsessions in a systematic fashion, without performing compulsive behaviors that typically serve to reduce anxiety. Through this process, the individual learns that there is nothing to fear and the obsessions no longer cause distress. From the IOCDF : With ERP, the difference is that when you make the choice to confront your anxiety and obsessions you must also make a commitment to not give in and engage in the compulsive behavior. When you don't do the compulsive behaviors, over time you will actually feel a drop in your anxiety level. This natural drop in anxiety that happens when you stay “exposed” and “prevent” the compulsive “response” is called habituation. Instead, a person is forced to confront their obsessive thoughts relentlessly. The goal is to make the sufferer so accustomed to their obsessions that they no longer feel tempted to engage in soothing compulsions. Types of Exposure -- GoodTherapy.org article Imaginal Exposure: In this type of exposure, a person in therapy is asked to mentally confront the fear or situation by picturing it in one's mind. For example, a person with agoraphobia, a fear of crowded places, might imagine standing in a crowded mall. In Vivo Exposure: When using this type of exposure, a person is exposed to real-life objects and scenarios. For example, a person with a fear of flying might go to the airport and watch a plane take off. Virtual Reality Exposure: This type of exposure combines elements of both imaginal and in vivo exposure so that a person is placed in situations that appear real but are actually fabricated. For example, someone who has a fear of heights—acrophobia—might participate in a virtual simulation of climbing down a fire escape. Steven Pence, and colleagues in a 2010 article in the American Journal of Psychotherapy: "When exposures go wrong: Troubleshooting guidelines for managing difficult scenarios that arise in Exposure-based treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder The present article reviews five issues that occur in therapy but have been minimally discussed in the OCD treatment literature: 1) when clients fail to habituate to their anxiety -- they don't calm down2) when clients misjudge how much anxiety an exposure will actually cause3) when incidental exposures happen in session -- other fears in the fear hierarchy intrude. 4) when mental or covert rituals interfere with treatment -- covert compulsive behaviors5) when clients demonstrate exceptionally high anxiety sensitivity. Stacey Smith Counseling at stacysmithcounseling.com -- ERP failures Utilizing safety behaviors Not sitting with the anxiety until it dissipates -- distracting yourself Not working through all the irrational, unhelpful thoughts Not practicing often enough. ERP criticisms Can be really unpleasant for clients -- repeated exposures to terrifying stimuli -- can there be a better way? Concerns about safety and security Concerns about flooding with anxiety Ben Blum: Inside the Revolutionary Treatment That Could Change Psychotherapy Forever elemental.medium.com July 21, 2020 Robert Fox is haunted by a memory of a germophobic woman with OCD whom he met once while she was hospitalized. As part of her ERP therapy, the therapists took her into the bathroom and had her wipe her hands over the toilet and sink and then rub them through her hair. She wasn't permitted to shower until the next morning. Concerns about dropout rates. Dropout rate of 18.7% across 21 ERP studies with 1400 participants Clarissa Ong and colleagues in 2016 article in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders Dropout rate of 10% among youth for ERP in a 2019 meta-analysis by Carly Johnco and her colleagues in the Journal "Depression and Anxiety" 11 randomized trials I'm concerned that it doesn't go deep enough Not getting to root causes -- staying at the symptom level -- seeing symptoms as nonsensical One thing which I can't stress enough is that OCD is completely nonsensical and will not listen to reason. This is one of the most frightening things about having it. I knew that to anyone I told, there are Salvador Dali paintings that make more sense. - Author: Joe Wells What is the fear really about. Let's not just ignore it. Fear is a response to something. Tracing back layers, going back through grief and anger, all the way to shame. Shame episodes 37-49. Doesn't get to any spiritual issues Medication International OCD Foundation Drugs and dosages High doses are often needed for these drugs to work in most people. Research suggests that the following doses may be needed: fluvoxamine (Luvox®) – up to 300 mg/day fluoxetine (Prozac®) – 40-80 mg/day sertraline (Zoloft®) – up to 200 mg/day paroxetine (Paxil®) – 40-60 mg/day citalopram (Celexa®) – up to 40 mg/day* clomipramine (Anafranil®) – up to 250 mg/day escitalopram (Lexapro®) – up to 40 mg/day venlafaxine (Effexor®) – up to 375 mg/day How Do These Medications Work? From the International OCD Foundation. It remains unclear as to how these particular drugs help OCD. The good news is that after decades of research, we know how to treat patients, even though we do not know exactly why our treatments work. We do know that each of these medications affect a chemical in the brain called serotonin. Serotonin is used by the brain as a messenger. If your brain does not have enough serotonin, then the nerves in your brain might not be communicating right. Adding these medications to your body can help boost your serotonin and get your brain back on track. Discussion of conventional approaches Medication I am not a physician -- I'm a psychologist and I don't have prescription privileges I don't give advice on medication choices or on dosages or anything like that. If you think your medication is helping your OCD, I'm not going to argue with you about that -- I don't want to try to dissuade anyone from taking medication for psychological issues if they think it's helping them. Here's the thing, though. So much of your thinking about medication depends on what you see as the cause of the problem It makes sense to take medication if you think the obsessions and compulsions pop up because of chemical imbalances. You take the medication to restore the chemical balance and reduce the symptoms. So many of treatments for OCD treat the obsessions and compulsions as meaningless, as irrational, as just the random epiphenomena of consciousness, or just as nonsensical expressions of miswiring in the brain or just the effects of poorly balanced neurochemical in the brain. And so these approaches, like ERP that and medication that target the obsessions and compulsions for eradication, that seek to vanquish them result in multiple problems I think that is a major, major mistake. And here is what I want to emphasize. Obsessions and Compulsions are symptoms. They are symptoms. Obsessions and compulsions, as painful and as debilitating as they are for many people, those obsessions and compulsions are not the primary problem. They are the effects of the primary problem. Obsessions and compulsions happen late in the causal chain. I see meaning in every obsession and in every compulsion. I see a message in every obsession and compulsion. A cry for help, a signal of deeper distress. There are cases in which a psychological problem can be purely or primarily organic -- due to a medical condition -- for example due to head trauma that causes brain damage. Or a brain tumor on the pituitary gland that disrupts your whole endocrine system, resulting in mood swings. But, Most of the time, though, psychological symptoms have psychological causes. As a Catholic psychologist, I want to move much further back in the causal chain. I want to address and resolve the underlying issues that give rise to the obsessions in the first place.

Resist the urge to do your compulsive behavior The anxiety will fade You're not going to lose control or have a breakdown Practice Challenge Obsessive thoughts Thoughts are just thoughts Write down obsessive thoughts and compulsions Writing it all down will help you see just how repetitive your obsessions are. Writing down the same phrase or urge hundreds of times will help it lose its power. Writing thoughts down is much harder work than simply thinking them, so your obsessive thoughts are likely to disappear sooner. Challenge your obsessive thoughts. Use your worry period to challenge negative or intrusive thoughts by asking yourself What's the evidence that the thought is true? That it's not true? Have I confused a thought with a fact? Is there a more positive, realistic way of looking at the situation? What's the probability that what I'm scared of will actually happen? If the probability is low, what are some more likely outcomes? Is the thought helpful? How will obsessing about it help me and how will it hurt me? What would I say to a friend who had this thought? Create an OCD worry period. Rather than trying to suppress obsessions or compulsions, develop the habit of rescheduling them. Choose one or two 10-minute “worry periods” each day, time you can devote to obsessing. During your worry period, focus only on negative thoughts or urges. Don't try to correct them. At the end of the worry period, take a few calming breaths, let the obsessive thoughts go, and return to your normal activities. The rest of the day, however, is to be designated free of obsessions. When thoughts come into your head during the day, write them down and “postpone” them to your worry period. Create a tape of your OCD obsessions or intrusive thoughts. Focus on one specific thought or obsession and record it to a tape recorder or smartphone. Recount the obsessive phrase, sentence, or story exactly as it comes into your mind. Play the tape back to yourself, over and over for a 45-minute period each day, until listening to the obsession no longer causes you to feel highly distressed. By continuously confronting your worry or obsession you will gradually become less anxious. You can then repeat the exercise for a different obsession.

Manage Stress Quickly self-soothe and relieve anxiety symptoms by making use of one or more of your physical senses—sight, smell, hearing, touch, taste—or movement. You might try listening to a favorite piece of music, looking at a treasured photo, savoring a cup of tea, or stroking a pet. Practice relaxation techniques. Mindful meditation, yoga, deep breathing, and other relaxation techniques can help lower your overall stress and tension levels and help you manage your urges. For best results, try practicing a relaxation technique regularly. Lifestyle changes Exercise regularly Get enough sleep Avoid alcohol and nicotine Not sure this is going to work.

Internal family systems, or IFS, is a type of therapy that believes we are all made up of several parts or sub-personalities. It draws from structural, strategic, narrative, and Bowenian types of family therapy. The founder, Dr. Richard Schwartz, thought of the mind as an inner family and began applying techniques to individuals that he usually used with families. The underlying concept of this theory is that we all have several parts living within us that fulfill both healthy and unhealthy roles. Life events or trauma, however, can force us out of those healthy roles into extreme roles. The good news is that these internal roles are not static and can change with time and work. The goal of IFS therapy is to achieve balance within the internal system and to differentiate and elevate the self so it can be an effective leader in the system. Parts: Separate, independently operating personalities within us, each with own unique prominent needs, roles in our lives, emotions, body sensations, guiding beliefs and assumptions, typical thoughts, intentions, desires, attitudes, impulses, interpersonal style, and world view. Each part also has an image of God and also its own approach to sexuality. Robert Falconer calls them insiders. Robert Fox and Alessio Rizzo have done the most work with IFS to work with obsessions and compulsions. Sources IFS and Hope with OCD with Alessio Rizzo and Robert Fox -- Episode 102 of Tammy Sollenberger's podcast The One Inside -- September 17, 2021 Podcast IFS Talks: Hosts Aníbal Henriques & Tisha Shull A Talk with Robert Fox on OCD-types -- Robert Fox February 20, 2021 Robert Fox, IFS therapist with OCD Ben Blum: Inside the Revolutionary Treatment That Could Change Psychotherapy Forever elemental.medium.com July 21, 2020 https://elemental.medium.com/inside-the-revolutionary-treatment-that-could-change-psychotherapy-forever-8be035d54770 Robert Fox, a therapist in Woburn, Massachusetts, also wishes more people knew about IFS. Diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder at age 21 after a lifetime of unusual compulsions, he spent 23 years receiving the standard care: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure response prevention (ERP). Neither had much effect, especially ERP, which involved repeatedly exposing himself to things he was anxious about in the hopes of gradually habituating to them. “When you think about it, it's a very painful method of therapy,” he says. Fox discovered IFS in 2008. Before, he had always been encouraged to think of his compulsions as meaningless pathologies. Now, for the first time, they began making sense to him as the behavior of protectors who were trying to manage the underlying shame and fear of exiles. After two particularly powerful unburdenings, his symptoms abated by 95% and stayed that way. “[OCD] used to be almost like kryptonite around my neck when I would have serious flare-ups,” he says. “I feel a lot of freedom and peace and I really owe it to Dick [Schwartz] and the model.” Concerns about ERP ERP doesn't bring the curiosity -- why did this happen? Obsessions are not irrational and Compulsions are not meaningless Alessio Rizzo Conventional OCD diagnosis and treatment ERP and medication -- nothing points back to underlying causes. Alessio Rizzo: Evidence-based approaches for OCD that work -- they work by drawing a manager part into a role of suppressing OCD symptoms Needing to continue ERP. Causes: Fox Repressed anger. -- not a parent who could witness Intense shame that is dissociated Shame from childhood -- exiled Shame from the OCD itself. -- sarcasm from others, especially from his older brother. “OCD is like having a bully stuck inside your head and nobody else can see it.” — Krissy McDermott We hide what we are ashamed of -- not easy to treat. Fox on his treatment: Right. I didn't see it myself until one day I was out for a walk with my dog Gizmo around my block, walking around the block with him and I had been to all these lectures about shame and I was walking one day and all of a sudden it was like, it just came to me “Holy, Holy, Holy shit. I carry that shame.” And it was like a dark cloud that was overhead and just kind of followed me wherever I went. And it was actually not an awful thing to realize. That's what had been basically walking around on my back for so long. It was this deep shame. In agreement with how central I think shame is to OCD Obsessions and compulsions develop gradually and experiment with different ways of drawing attention away from the intensity of underlying experience. All happens in silence in the inner world. An obsession or compulsion distracts us from the pain of an exile. If I'm worrying about the gas in the lawnmower overflowing and blowing up the house -- takes me away from the shame of feeling inadequate at work. Needs to be powerful enough to hijack my mind So many layers of protectors -- takes time Alessio Rizzo Post dated March 3, 2021 entitled "IFS and OCD -- A Comparison Between CBT and IFS for OCD. https://www.therapywithalessio.com/articles/ifs-and-ocd-how-does-the-ifs-method-work-for-ocd In IFS, we use the language of parts to describe how we function. As a consequence, the OCD is considered a part of the person. This means that, even if the OCD seems quite a strong presence in the client's life, there is much more to a person than OCD. At this stage CBT and IFS might look similar because CBT also encourages clients to label the anxieties and the intrusive thoughts that form the OCD and not engage with them. The main difference between CBT and IFS is in how we relate to the OCD part. One of the foundational elements of IFS is that all parts are welcome, and, therefore, the OCD part is not dismissed or ignored, but it is respected. Respect does not mean that the client will believe the content of intrusive thoughts or that they will follow up on whatever behaviour the OCD wants. IFS gives us a way to make sure that there is enough safety and calm before offering respect to the OCD part. This might take a different amount of attempts depending on the severity of the OCD, and on the strength of the relationship between therapist and client. Healing OCD with IFS The main difference between CBT and IFS is in the definition of “cure” of OCD. CBT therapy has the ultimate goal of empowering the client to overcome OCD thoughts and anxieties by never engaging with them or by using exposure therapy to demonstrate that the OCD fears and obsessions have got no evidence to exist. IFS believes that healing is the result of the re-organisation of parts so that extreme behaviour is substituted by more functional ways of thinking and acting, and, above all, IFS aims at healing the traumatic events that have led to the development of OCD symptoms. The result of healing the trauma that fuels OCD is a spontaneous decrease of OCD anxieties and intrusive thoughts and, in my opinion, this form of healing is preferable to the one described by CBT. Using IFS language, the CBT approach aims at creating a new part in the system that is tasked with managing the OCD, while there is no attention paid to discovery and healing of the trauma that is fueling the OCD.Choosing the method that best suits you There is no way of saying what method works best for a person. Therapy outcomes depend on many factors and not only on the method used. Sometimes the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the biggest healing factor, and it is ultimately up to the client to find the best combination of therapist and method that can best suit them. Colleen West, LMFT LMFT December 20 post on her website colleenwest.com Treating OCD with Internal Family Systems Parts Work Just a word about treating OCD with IFS versus Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Treating obsessive and compulsive parts with IFS is diametrically opposed to treating it in the Exposure and Response Prevention, the most commonly recommended approach. IFS treats OCD parts as what they are--managers and fire fighters, they have jobs to do. If you can help the exiles underneath these protectors, there will be less need for the OCD behaviors. (This might be complicated if there are still constant stressors in the client's life, for which they need the protection.) IFS does work, and I have successfully treated people with full blown OCD who now have about 5% of their original symptoms only during moments of high stress, and they do not consider themselves OCD anymore. These clients have been helped by taking SSRIs as well, which I will say more about below.ERP works to suppress those same protectors that IFS seeks to understand/care for. It does "work", as people get a strategy for the thoughts that are driving them nuts, but the folks I know who have gone through this treatment find they have to do their 'homework' forever or the OCD comes back, and they always feel it threatening. In short, it is stressful, and the fight is never over.For anyone doing ERP, they have to commit fully to that approach, the homework is hours a day, and one cannot be halfhearted about it or it won't work. The good thing about ERP is that it gives people some control, which they strongly desire, because they feel so powerless.

No question is off-limits as we tackle topics including children's face masks and the long-term effects of wearing them. Many are asking, “if masking children is child abuse.” Today, we're thrilled to hear outspoken experts and advocates for your right to know the truth on today's show. We're talking about a dramatic increase in anxiety, depression, and learning disorders directly due to mandated mask-wearing. We have experts like Dr. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. He is an epidemiologist and biostatistician. He also serves on scientific advisory committees to the Department of Food and Drug Administration, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Plus, many more doctors weigh in.

Before we begin, we need to distinguish between a depressive mood and clinical depression. Despair is a common emotion. For example, if we plan to go hiking with our friends, and they tell us before we set out that they have to cancel, we may feel upset. Or, we may have secretly worked out for a month, in an effort to impress our friends, but they say they don't see any change, and we feel depressed as a result.We can see that feeling “depressed” is often associated with specific things; that is to say, feeling dejected is not random, but it is caused by a situation in your life. This depressive mood doesn't last long. When the tough situation is over, our depression usually wanes. Clinical depression, or major depression, is a mental illness that is very different from a depressive mood. We will discuss the symptoms and causes of clinical depression in part one. In this article, when we use the word “depression,” we are referring primarily to clinical depression, not to a depressive mood. The key character in this book is the counsellor, Heron, who mainly uses the Transactional Analysis method in counselling. Transactional Analysis is a psychoanalytic theory that helps to identify the ego state of the communicator as a basis for understanding behavior. In the story, Heron always focuses on Toad, valuing trust and communication as they are foundational to their work. Heron helps Toad identify the root of his problems and finds a way to help him rebuild a healthy life.
In a world of plentiful capital and compressed yields, activism and being the agent of one's returns is a way forward. Transformational activism in particular is centered around a deep commitment and trusting relationship between the investor and the company. This multi-dimensional approach forgoes short-term solutions like financial engineering and instead focuses on working with great leaders to put together the right people, resources, and strategies for long-term results. Few firms exemplify the value creation associated with shareholder engagement and activism better than ValueAct and today I'm joined by Mason Morfit, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of ValueAct Capital. Mason Morfit is a Partner, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of ValueAct Capital, a governance-oriented investment fund with over $14 billion in assets under management. ValueAct has a very highly concentrated portfolio and one of its partners has served on the Boards of Directors of 44 public companies over the life of this great activist fund. Mason himself has served as a director of Microsoft Corporation, Valeant, Bard, Immucor, and many other companies. In this episode, Mason and I discuss why he became interested in the psychological aspect of economics, how the activist investor landscape has shifted, the difference between transactional and transformational activism, the value of a learn-teach relationship, and so much more! Key Topics: The advantages of Mason's experience growing up as an outsider (2:30) What drew Mason to studying economics and psychology (3:48) Working in the health care group at Credit Suisse First Boston in the late 90s (5:37) Mason's introduction to activist investing (7:24) Activist investing in the time of the imperial CEO (9:42) How corporate scandals and Sarbanes-Oxley changed the landscape for ValueAct (10:44) 20 years of network and relationship building (12:54) The immense value of documentation and knowledge sharing (13:50) Defending against self-attribution bias (15:24) The inherent problems with a public company board (17:48) ValueAct's role in mitigating against bureaucratic biases (18:24) Integrating the work of board committees (19:37) Psychological paradigms that emerge based on corporate history (22:18) Shifting paradigms that no longer work (24:14) Differentiating between transactional and transformational activism (28:15) Finding opportunities in interesting times (30:36) ValueAct's mission (31:38) The key ingredients of ValueAct's successes (34:37) Creating a learn-teach relationship (35:46) How the learn-teach relationship helps with organizational diagnosis (37:44) Creating an environment that empowers truth (39:38) The changing Japanese corporate governance landscape (41:25) Olympus as a case study of ValueAct's expansion into Japan (43:31) ValueAct's unique approach to investing in the Japanese market (47:45) Why activism today is more relevant than ever before (49:53) Shifting opportunities for an activist investor (51:51) Creating 21st century global champions (54:04) The disproportionate reward of disruptors at the expense of incumbents (55:27) Mason's book recommendations (57:14) And much more!

This week, in Skamania, Washington, where a bloodbath is discovered, in a local home, on New Year's Day. There are several bodies, and several loose ends, including a missing teenager, and a sick grandpa, who is incapable of speech, and can't be relied upon as a witness. The scene is horrific, with the walls, bathed in blood, but the crime scene, and everything else in this case, are handled terribly, possibly because it was literally the Sheriff's first day on the job! Missing evidence, botched tests... So, was it a stranger, or a teen, murdering his whole family & committing necrophillia on his big sister? Either way, there are no good answers here! Along the way, we find out that Washington takes it's timber very seriously, that some people who don't have any friends, also have an awful lot of friends, and your first day on any job shouldn't include finding three dead bodies!!

This week, in Indialantic, Florida, two successful, and seemingly happy couples enjoy life & love. This doesn't last long, though, as problems, affairs, and tempers flare up & cause many problems, including an absolutely horrific & violent murder, that freaks this upscale area right out. But who did it? The Ex? A new lover? A stranger? A friend, who sees the death, through psychic visions & leads their family to the location of the body? It's a mess, with changing stories, many motives, and ridiculous excuses!! Along the way, we find out that a lot of murder happens in Florida, that seizures usually don't cause psychic visions, and that leading people to a body disposal site makes you look super guilty!!

This week, in Marion, Virginia, the unthinkably terrible murder of a local woman, leads to a man, who has done this kind of thing before. This exact kind of thing. In almost the exact same place. This time, it's much worse, though, as he gets to fulfill all the crazy fantasies that he built up in his head, since the last time. This is only the start, as death row prison escapes, and a near fleeing of the country, make this one of the weirdest things we can remember. In the end, will he get a last meal, or a life in prison? Along the way, we find out that some people only get worse over time, that maybe you shouldn't tattoo "Born To Die" on your arm, and that it looks very odd to execute Santa Claus!!
