I was 16 years old when I finally got a starting position on my high school football team. It took all year of trying to convince my coach that I had what it took. My parents were on the stands brimming with pride, and I knew I was going to make them proud. The ball was kicked right to me, inches away from my fingertips, I fumbled it, got tackled, and then was benched the rest of the season. It was at this moment that I knew I would never be a high performance athlete. But, we are going to be talking about high performance excellence today. My guest today is Shelly Anderson, a High Performance consultant who has worked with some of the top champion athletes in the world. “You have to focus on your business regardless of what's going on in your personal life. You can't use that as an excuse of a lousy performance in your business.” IN THIS EPISODE High level athletes that Shelly has and does consult. Shelly's goal as a high level consultant. What health really looks like overall. Why making it as a professional athlete is a big deal. Specific traits that elite athletes have. The right amount of ego. Habits of elite level athletes that entrepreneurs can learn from. How to pull yourself out of a funk and compartmentalize. KPI and the importance of tracking without being too emotionally invested. Being honest about where you are. Value determination.

As we conclude this series on the global supply chain crisis, we would be remiss to not discuss a major disruption that impacts so many of us: technology. With increasingly higher demand for virtually everything in our ever-evolving digital universe, worldwide semiconductor shortages have affected the supply of so many sectors that rely upon them. But could there be opportunity in this disruption? Is there an end in sight? Or does our expedient world just need to learn how to slow themselves down? In the final chapter of this supply chain series on Disruptive Forces, Daniel Flax, Senior Research Analyst for the technology sector, chats with Anu Rajakumar to share his views on how many of the tech companies are addressing these slowdowns, what some of the infrastructure changes are in the pipeline and a few ways the impacted industries are getting creative in solving this major problem that we're facing across the globe.

What to Know When Providing Therapy for Elite Athletes Curt and Katie chat about the specific competence required to work with elite athletes. We explore how elite athletes present (including diagnosis) as well as what treatment looks like for elite athletes. We also talk about the training cycles and periodization, developmental stages, and identity formation for competitive athletes. We also look at what healthy training environments include and how athletes can take care of their own well-being. In this podcast episode we look at what therapists need to know about working with elite athletes For our second continuing education worthy podcast, we wanted to support therapists in understanding what they need to know (or know that they don't know) about working with elite athletes. The differences between being a fan and being competent to work with elite athletes The types of competence needed to support athletes who are at an elite level Sports psychology and other areas of specialty to support athletes The stringent criteria to be called a sports psychologist What diagnoses do athletes present with when they enter therapy? Not necessarily anxiety, but it can be anxiety related or unrelated to sport Diagnoses can be related to the sport due to body, substance, or changes in circumstances Diagnoses can also be related to other elements of their life and transitions What does treatment look like for elite athletes? High school and college athletes are most likely the clients we'll see The integral nature of their team and who is best to be included in the treatment team Logistics and scheduling due to games and practices, obtaining required consents Training schedules, food information is relevant to therapeutic work The different goals for elite athletes than for other folks who enjoy sports Looking at in the moment frustrations versus a desire to leave the sport Sports assessments to identify athletic coping skills Helping athletes to make decisions for themselves and identify when it's burnout and when it's a mismatch Understanding training cycles and the impact on athlete clients Specific language that athletes may use Periodization, micro, meso, and macro cycles in training The importance of planned growth and rest as well as peaking at the right time The focus of timing for everything How injuries or changes in schedule (like with covid) can impact this timing and what that means for athletes Developmental factors for young athletes The focus of training for younger children as well as the investment phase for youth Developing one's identity as an athlete What can positively impact and negatively impact the future commitment to sport Other developmental factors related to being a teen interacting with these developmental elements What a balanced life looks like for elite athletes Who athletes spend time with, share their life with The hobbies that complement the sport Understanding how maintenance impacts the rest of the schedule The factors that improve an athlete's well-being Myths related to the tangential benefits of being an elite athlete (i.e., I'll get college paid for) The importance of having a therapist who isn't just a “fan” The differences between team and individual sports The competency needed related to understanding the sport to understand all of the dynamics What good social systems around athletes have in common The understanding of how each person in the athlete's circle interacts with the goals The culture created within the team and with the people around the athlete Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka – a look at how they have been taking care of themselves The transition out of being an elite athlete Injury and unplanned retirement Planning for an intentional retirement Moving out of the athlete identity into something new Our Generous Sponsor for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: SuperBill Interested in making it easier for your clients to use their out-of-network-benefits for therapy?

Katie Vernoy 01:30 Once again, hop over to moderntherapistcommunity.com. For one CE once you've listened well. Curt Widhalm 01:37 Welcome back modern therapists. This is the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide. I'm Curt Widhalm with Katie Vernoy. And this is the podcast for therapists about the things that we do in our practice the clients that we see and considerations that we need to take into account. And this is another one of our deep dive continuing education eligible episodes. And you can find information about how to get your continuing education in the announcements before and at the end of the show, as well as in our show notes over at mtsgpodcast.com. Today, we are diving into the world of working with clients who are elite athletes. Katie Vernoy 02:22 Yay. Curt Widhalm 02:23 Now, this is something where the Olympics are going on right now. And this year's Olympics are a little bit weird. But I think it's important to frame kind of where we're coming from and the qualifications that we have as far as being able to talk about this to the level that we are and this being a very introductory level workshop as far as working with elite athletes. Katie I'm going to let you go first. What is your background and qualifications to be teaching other therapists about working with elite athletes? Katie Vernoy 02:57 Well, in fact, I don't have qualifications of that I've I've had my own forays into some sports and worked with some athletes. But I would say that I am here in the role of facilitator and interviewer and excited to learn more. How about you, Curt? Curt Widhalm 03:17 Thank you for asking. So in addition to being a therapist and podcast host, I am actually a USA track and field certified level two coach. And there are three levels of certification within USA Track and Fields. This is kind of the masters level of those three certifications. It is a and my particular area of coaching expertise here comes in endurance events, typically considered the 800 meter race and up through ultra marathon distances. So I have been doing this for several years I have competed regionally competitively. I've placed in a marathon before, it was a boutique one. So but I think that this brings us to kind of our first point is that a lot of us in the world are fans of sport. And a lot of us are going to have a lot of opinions about sports and about things that are going on with athletes. And this is one of those big reminders that you got to have the right competencies to work with specialized populations. And this is one where I think that we have the potential as a lot of people in this profession to let our fandum-ness get in the way of our own assessments of our abilities to accurately work with clients who come from these backgrounds. And that's going to be a really big common theme throughout the episode today is: are you competent to be able to work with this kind of a population? Because at the elite levels, we're not talking recreational people, you know, when I was running and competing myself, I still considered myself a very recreational runner. And I was running most weeks, 60 - 70 miles a week, some weeks, I'd be running up to 90 miles a week, and I tell a lot of my friends this and they go, I can't possibly conceive of what that means. And so these are the kinds of things where these are people whose schedules are filled with being the best physically performing that they can be. They're going to have schedules that are all over the place, they're going to be inconsistently available, they're going to have a lot of commands and demands that might come across as entitled, but the biggest priority of their life is being physically capable of performing. So this is where you have to be on your game, knowing the type of client that you're working with, and what it's going to take to work with this client successfully, in order to actually have good successful therapeutic treatments. Katie Vernoy 06:20 And when we were talking ahead of time, I think there's the clarification that there are folks where this is their specialty that you know, sports psychologists, folks that have gone through that extra training. And we can link to some of that in the show notes. So if you're wanting to pursue this as a career, that would be the way to go. Again, reiterating this as a entry level course to let you know what you don't know, really, to say, hey, refer out or get more training. I think it makes sense to talk about what are some of the basics of what would make someone competent to work with elite athletes or becoming a competent, quote unquote sports therapist, Curt Widhalm 06:58 The American Psychological Association division 47, is who outlines what a sports psychologist is. And they go so far as to say you really have to have the competencies to do this, to call yourself as a sports psychologist, you have to be trained in sports psychology. And they go so far as to have an FAQ on their page. As far as, hey, I've got an athletic background, I was super competitive in this. And now I'm a psychologist. Can I call myself a sports psychologist? And the APA's answer is basically, no. So. So what makes a competent sports psychologist is having a knowledge that encompasses and having a training that encompasses knowledge of the psychological skills of athletes, the well-being of athletes, and the systemic issues associated with sports organizations, and in the development and social aspects of sports participation. In other words, this is knowing all of the ins and outs of what it takes to be a participant in the sport, the developmental aspects of being able to approach sport, understanding the systemic pressures around them, and how to navigate them. And I think that that last piece of it is where this is a population where we can have a lot of opinions of how people handle things in normal, everyday life that just does not apply to the systemic issues in a sports world. And I think we'll talk about some people in stories throughout this episode today that kind of illustrate some of these points. And apropos to our last continuing education podcast, we won't be making any diagnostics of any of those people showing up in the media, but talking about what their experiences are, and what their descriptions and some of these media releases that they've had or interviews that they've done for other people. Katie Vernoy 09:06 So let's start with the treatment part just to kind of get that out of the way. Because it seems like that's the minimal piece that a lot of people will will interact with, but then there's like, what's the real deal? So starting with the kinds of diagnoses that athletes are usually going to present with. Curt Widhalm 09:27 Sure. So, most of the time, athletes are not going to be coming in with necessarily anxiety related issues. And while they might come in with, you know, having this block towards performance, a lot of times they're going to be referred for things like eating disorders, that especially for a lot of weight or image based sports, things like gymnastics, wrestling, crew as another example where weight is going to have a factor into, especially losing weight is going to have a factor into performance. This is sometimes where athletes can go too far and end up into disordered eating territory. Stress is obviously a very, very common one. While sometimes there is anxiety, it's not necessarily always about performance, it might be anxiety about maintaining a position on the team, or anxiety about managing other aspects of their life. There are also a tremendous number of substance use disorders that athletes end up presenting with, typically, you're gonna see this with alcohol. But by far, the most common diagnosis that you're gonna see with elite athletes is adjustment disorders. Katie Vernoy 10:47 Explain that a little bit more Curt Widhalm 10:48 There are a number of different aspects of changing in life that athletes are going to go through and a little bit we're going to talk about this as far as some of the developmental factors. But it helps to think that people don't just one day as adults magically appear as elite athletes. That this is something where many of them have been practicing and finely tuning themselves for years to be able to get to where they are, where they want to be. And along the way, comes bumps and bruises, injuries that prevent them from being able to perform, there comes a time in your life where developmentally you're, you're hoping for just a nice linear growth of your ability to continue to get better and better at something. And when you inevitably don't, there is a mental adjustment that goes along with understanding why you're not performing in the way that you are. There are adjustments of things happening outside of the sport, family issues, friend issues, school issues, at the very highest levels - media issues that end up needing to have an adjustment, or at the very end of people's careers, also adjusting to retirement and changes in identity from things that they have spent their whole life doing to now the absence of that thing completely. Katie Vernoy 12:20 Makes sense. I think one diagnosis that you didn't include here was PTSD. And I know for myself, I had people that I had people that were no longer elite athletes are not on that, that trajectory. But I'm even just thinking about, you know, huge amounts of women, gymnasts, who were sexually assaulted. I know that there are even kind of a parody of, you know, abusive coaches, those types of things. Is that Is that relevant here the PTSD diagnosis? Curt Widhalm 12:51 It is, but it's not. And I'll tell you why. Katie Vernoy 12:55 Okay. Curt Widhalm 12:57 A lot of our research on working with elite athletes does not consider former athletes or retired athletes as part of their research base. So we'll include our reference lists over in our show notes of some of the stuff that we're talking about here. But the the particular research is focused on people who are currently athletes, or people who are at the end of being in their athletic career potentially looking at transitioning out. And this does not discount what you're saying, as Yeah, that stuff does happen. But what you're talking about, in particular, is more of working with former athletes. So... Katie Vernoy 13:40 Sure, my mind's working with former athletes, but I'm thinking about like, the whole US Olympic gymnast gymnastics team, you know, like, I would imagine, there would be a lot of PTSD there around sexual assault. Curt Widhalm 13:51 I think we're going to come back to that point later in the episode because of some of the stuff that we're going to talk about in the middle of the episode. Katie Vernoy 14:00 All right. All right. I'll leave that there then. Okay, so you have someone come in, they might have one of these diagnoses, the fact that most likely it's adjustment disorder, and there's going to be a lot of stuff we talked about, that you've already previewed for me, which is really, really interesting. may seem like it's surprising that we're looking at just an adjustment disorder. So, okay. And then solo practitioners oftentimes work solo, it seems like there might need to be a treatment team here who is in that treatment team for athletes. Curt Widhalm 14:31 So think of what the world of somebody whose life revolves around athletics might include, and recognizing that realistically, most of our audience, well, while we would all love the LeBron Jameses to be our clients and the wonderful, you know, pride that you might have in working with them, realistically, the most common people that we're going to have coming from this world into our offices. are high school and college athletes operating at the highest levels of their performance. And while there might be, you know, some consent issues, as far as getting enough signed releases around to everybody, you have to consider the major important people in a athlete's life. And first and foremost is going to be their coach. Because at the end of the day, the coach's decision, as far as who plays, how they play, how often they play is going to be something that really ends up factoring into a lot of the individual decisions that your client is going to make. And it's understanding the coaches culture idea. And realistically, knowing that you're not going to be probably talking with a lot of coaches very often, of what the environment that they set up is. And so you're talking about, you know, women's gymnastics team here and some of the abusive situations that have happened since forever. It does start with the culture that the coach ends up bringing to a certain gym or a certain team type attitude, that is going to set up where your client is approaching their day to day job. Now, as I mentioned earlier, this is people who are very, very busy. So a lot of scheduling might end up taking place through parents, that having to work around schedules, and especially with a lot of athletics that take you know, multiple days out of the week. Baseball is an example where it wouldn't be unrealistic for a client to be having three or four baseball games in a week, scheduling is gonna change a lot. And when your client shows up to the office, it may be irregular, it may be done through communications with the parents. Particularly in those weight based sports - but also, I do see a lot of colleges appropriately, having nutritionists working with teams. So you might be working with nutritionists as well, in helping to understand where your client's food plans are going to go. And even that's going to be very dependent on the sport that they're talking about. We were talking before the show of the major differences in what happens with eating as an offensive lineman on the football team, versus what might be different with an endurance athlete who's running marathons. Katie Vernoy 17:31 Sure. Curt Widhalm 17:31 And then, because of the amount of time that athletics takes up, you may also be working with educators as far as what the role of education is taking, and particularly if you're working with athletes who might not be spending as much time in class or falling behind on their grades, and needing to be able to work with educators to keep them eligible as well. Katie Vernoy 17:58 So these are all people who have a lot of impact on the client. Who are part of their team, and, and thus should be part of the treatment team. The question that comes up for me here is really about identifying where, where the client fits in. And maybe this goes later too, but I just feel like there's they're oftentimes when we're working with some of these folks, they are, especially the ones who are not health professionals, you know, coaches, parents, that kind of stuff. They are not objective, they have very specific motives they have specific outcomes they are looking for, how do you manage a coach or a parent who is pushing for something that may not be in the best interest of the client? And or not what the client wants? I mean, I think there's, there's elements of this that maybe we talk about in the social systems, but I'm just curious on like, how do you develop the relationships with the this broad array of people that have very different perspectives on what might be best for the client? Curt Widhalm 19:01 And I think inherent in your question is a little bit of the naivete that we take, as a typical mental health professional Katie Vernoy 19:10 Yes. Curt Widhalm 19:12 That from a team approach, the end of the day, it's whether or not the team won. That that is, what the the goal of the team is and kind of that social environment is geared around how to get towards winning. And while what you're talking about may apply to kind of more of our garden variety recreational athletes or people who are happy to be on the team sort of things when we're talking about the elite athlete sort of things. This is a world that is built around winning and losing. Your role as a mental health professional in this is understanding the psychological skill of your client to be able to get back into that winning environment. And while you're talking about some more of that client choice into this aspect is, it's being able to really tease out with clients like this. That what is their in-the-moment sort of voice? Or is this a consideration of leaving the sport altogether? Oftentimes, when I've worked with college athletes, or I've read autobiographies or interviews with people, you know, Andre Agassi's book that he wrote back in the 90s, talks about one of his first dates with Steffi Graf, before they got married, and they sat down to dinner. And their first conversation was, I fucking hate tennis. And these are people who continued to play at in elite level for quite a while after that, and have remained a big part of the tennis world. That if you're working with an athlete who's considering what is best for them, it's got to be done through the competence lens of understanding what their role and what their identity is to the sport, and how they can come back to that. And the specialized training that goes into this is going to need to use quite a few different assessments that frankly, most therapists just don't end up getting trained in, unless they go through specialized training, I'm talking about things like you know, the athletic coping skills inventory, the ACSI-28, it's a psychology assessment that measures an athlete's psychological coping skills in seven different areas. There's the disc model that can be used not only with athletes, but also with coaches that looks at dominance, influence, steadiness and compliance. These are the kinds of assessments that should be a regular part of what you have at your disposal to help determine the scope of competence of the scope of practice that you're going to end up doing with an elite athlete. Beyond kind of the naivete of the where does the athlete fit into this? These are the kinds of things that help the athlete come to some of those decisions themselves. Katie Vernoy 22:17 That makes sense. I think the the thing that I am still trying to sort out and maybe maybe this is more of a clarifying question, does do these assessments, assess for this? But as I mentioned, I've worked with folks who were kind of on that elite path, and fell out. And a lot of the the ways they discussed it, were this was: I was good at it, I enjoyed it, I no longer enjoyed it. It was really my parents pushing me to do this, or my coach pushing me to do this. And I am so relieved that I'm no longer in it. And granted, this could be that they didn't have the right person at the right time saying the right thing. But I feel like there, there are folks that at many different stages fall out and say what was I doing? This wasn't good for me. It was never good for me, why didn't anybody help me? Why did people keep pushing me to try to do this thing? And so how do we does the assessment, sort those questions out to see what the influences are around them? Curt Widhalm 23:19 And those two are just a couple of the assessments that sports therapists and sports psychologists end up using. That part of being able to take into account some of the factors like burnout that you're talking about that is going to look at people as you're describing who have been so pushed beyond burnout, that they no longer want to be in the sport. You know, I've heard from again my world for it's more endurance, athletics sort of things is heard from division one athletes who run 5k 10k Cross Country type races that say, I never want to run a race again, that... And those are typically in sports, where the competition outside of you know, at that division one level is going to be participating in road races gather are professional, you know, sort of circuits that they can go and compete in, but they're not as popular of professional sports, the livelihoods in those sports are are going to be much smaller than compared to something like basketball or or football or something where there's the potential to make millions of dollars in in a career. It is a question that you can ask and help athletes kind of figure out what their involvement and what their continued desire to participate is. And it's helping them to accept and understand what that means as far as their ongoing participation in it. And I think that part of what I hear from some of the younger athletes who, whose parents do push them into kind of some of these training things is helping to understand training cycles and development, not only physically but also psychologically as well. Katie Vernoy 25:15 So let's let's move into that then because I think that's really helpful to give us a little bit more context. So what what the therapists need to understand about training then? Let's start there. Curt Widhalm 25:26 So, training does not have a linear progression to it. And longtime listeners of the show know that I'm a big fan of Scott Miller as far as his work towards development of therapist and therapeutic skills. In turn, Scott Miller's work is largely influenced and started by Anders Ericsson, who was one of the first people to look at development and expertise across a number of different fields. And both of them led to the whole big deliberate practice sort of movement. Katie Vernoy 26:02 Sure. Curt Widhalm 26:03 Now with psychological or conversational type skills. Those are things where we all experienced burnout, a lot of us take steps back, and you know, we come back after an appropriate time away, we come back and we start doing therapy better. Just because we are recharged correctly. It's understanding that we physically, in response to physical stressors, like practices and training, also go through very predictable periodization techniques, or have to use periodization techniques, in order to train at our best. You can't just go out and practice at 100% every single day, and expect to see the same kind of linear growth throughout a season. And this takes into account that there are different terminologies for different kinds of things, a workout might be a specific one hour set of activities that somebody does, a series of workouts across a week is called a micro cycle, a seven day period. And this is where, you know, you might hear this from your crossfitter friends or people at the gym, you know, today's an arm day, the next the next day is a back and chest day, the next day, never skip leg day, folks. But you know, it's being able to kind of cycle through all of the different parts of the body in a predictable and structured way to optimize the development of those muscles. Katie Vernoy 27:34 And that's a micro cycle. Curt Widhalm 27:35 That is a micro cycle across a week. So you've got your Monday workout, you've got your Tuesday workout. Katie Vernoy 27:40 Yes, Curt Widhalm 27:41 Typically, we're going to see about three weeks of growth. So three micro cycles of growth, of increasing strenuous activity from week to week, that then requires a larger rest day in response to it. And so we're looking at a month of four micro cycles. We call this a meso cycle. And so this is where you might see a buildup of, you know, three weeks of increasing workouts and then a week where you're still having your workouts, you're still going through a very intentional shorter microcycle that backs off allows for some recovery allows for more rest, and this is intentionally done. So that way just like us coming back from vacation, this is a little bit of a vacation that's built into a schedule for athletes to kind of rest and recover and build back in. Katie Vernoy 28:38 Okay, so we've got a microcycle, which is a week. Meso cycles, which are a month and that's, you know, increasing and then dropping off for a rest week. What's a motorcycle? Curt Widhalm 28:50 A motorcycle? A motorcycle is a two wheeled engine driven machine. I think what you're going for is a macro cycle. Katie Vernoy 29:03 No, I was going for motorcycle but what is a macrocycle? Curt Widhalm 29:08 A macro cycle is going to be how different meso cycles fit together. And this can range anything from a year to four years. As far as some training plans go. Katie Vernoy 29:19 That's pretty macro. Curt Widhalm 29:21 And this is talking about the people at the very highest levels of of sport. Olympic athletes are going to plan for years of how their training is going to fit together. Lower levels this is planning through a season or it might be planning through academic year for those like cross country and then distance running athletes who would have like a fall season and then a spring season. But oftentimes, athletes physically are going to peak at one to two times per year. That once you reach kind of your your peakness as far as a physical response, you're not going to hold on to that for months and months. Typically, at least in the endurance athlete community, you're gonna hold on to that for about three weeks. And then your body is naturally going to need a much longer sort of recovery time, this is where a lot of marathon training plans are going to sit between 20 and 24 weeks, it's going to be that your peak is on race day. You don't want in other sports, you don't want your athletes peaking, the third game of the season and then just kind of trying to hold on to that all season puts them at greater risk for injury. So understanding these cycles is important. Because the way that workouts are laid out physically, are going to have different responses to different kinds of workouts, and particularly for a population that when they feel that things aren't going well for them physically, where their response is going to be, I need to make up for that workout. I need to work out more in order to catch up. It's having an understanding of this on the therapeutic side of hey, where are you at in your in your cycle? Are you in week 13, you in week 15, because there's a difference between those that we have to understand is going to bring out different emotions. Because a lot of mesocycles, that month long thing are going to plan for overload, an intentional functional overload in that third week of the mezzo cycle. In other words, that's where you're going to be build build build. And it's going to be tiring, and it's going to be frustrating. And it's going to take up more of your time where you're gonna hear some of that burnout language. I don't know if I can do this, again, I don't... that helps the clients to be able to step back and understand there's an emotional reaction depending on where they're at in their cycle. Katie Vernoy 32:01 Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. I mean, to me, understanding, having the language and understanding what someone's microcycle is meso cycle is, macro cycle is, and whether they drive a motorcycle. Alright, so understanding the language, understanding what somebody's training cycles look like being able to have some sort of a prediction, or predictive ability, maybe, of how that part of the cycle is going to impact them is pretty important. So if they're at that build, build, build and burning out that makes sense. If they're on the rest week, or at the end of the rest week, maybe not so much. You know, maybe there's there's some different elements that are really important to consider. To me, in the the folks who I've worked with kind of peripherally. It seems like timing of injuries, even kind of the minor injuries that oftentimes get worked through or you only take a few days break, it seems like that could be really hard to navigate within these different cycles. Curt Widhalm 33:07 Yeah, and timing starts to become everything for some people. I have permission to share this. But I was told years ago by a former Olympic gymnast, that their plans for children revolved around being born in the correct years for the Olympics, that being, especially in women's gymnastics where you know, your career peak is going to typically fall somewhere between the ages of 16 and 24. That the difference between showing up as a 14 year old versus showing up as a 16 year old is a decision that your parents are making when they're making love to create you. Katie Vernoy 33:55 That's intense. Curt Widhalm 33:57 And so some of the pressures around this are, you know, your born in the right here, put if COVID happens in your Olympic year. Katie Vernoy 34:07 Oh, that is ridiculously sad. Curt Widhalm 34:10 So timing on some of this kind of stuff is that, hey, some of the injuries that show up is then helping to create and these are again, little tiny adjustment disorders. No, don't fit that workout in into your periodization you know, rest week or Recovery Week, that that is a recovery week to let your body recover. And it's and this is where having that understanding of at least knowing what the coach's training plans for training cycles are going to be. So that way you can help create the emotional support because if there's one thing that I know from back in my training days as well as the coaching that I have done, and then also the athletes that have come into my office, the number one thing that I end up working most with clients on is getting appropriate rest and recovery, that it's not just about stressing and working out more. But it's allowing for body and mind recovery, to be able to trust their training. Katie Vernoy 35:16 I think that's interesting, because I think that resonates probably with a lot of therapists is that most of the people we work with who are on the the more driven side or anxious side, we're also pushing for that rest. But I think we're pushing for different things. So what does rest actually look like for an elite athlete? Curt Widhalm 35:37 Depends on where in their cycle that they are. And so, for example, a lot of this is going to come down to active versus passive recovery. Passive recovery is just like, go lounge around, sit on the couch, kick up your feet and watch Netflix, which.. There is space for it, but a lot more of athletic. active recovery is going to be things like stretching, slow walks, being able to make sure that that is part of what their plan is, it's cross training appropriately. In a meso cycle, it might be making sure that in the build weeks, it's getting enough sleep, it's being able to remain hydrated enough, it's getting the appropriate sort of nutritional intake and caloric intake. It's not adding in a bunch of extra things into their recovery week, just because they have more time because their workout schedules are less. And if you're talking about macrocycles, former Olympian Bernard Lagat is a middle distance runner from Kenya competed for America, but would take typically the entire month of December off each year without running at all, in order to be able to prepare for the next year in his macro cycle. So it's being able to look at it not only as a here's a blanket plan, but it's here's a specific and catered plan to you and your sport. On a day by day on a week by week and a year by year sort of approach. Katie Vernoy 37:15 We're back at this year by year thing. I'm curious because we you mentioned stuff around kind of the developmental factors. And it seems like for the the clients that most of our folks would interact with, you know, high school and college athletes. There's a lot of just normal development that's happening during those critical years. But you're also suggesting that there is development that happens in the identity as an athlete. Curt Widhalm 37:44 Absolutely. And I think where you're talking about some of these parents that are pushing their kids into sports is the biggest goal for introducing a lot of sports to young kids. I'm talking kids ages five to 12 is going to be fun and recreation. And while there's going to be some kids who are good, some kids who are naturally a lot more athletically developed, may even have the the setup to become a bigger, stronger athlete later on. This particular developmental phase as far as their identity to athletics is to have fun, and to keep them in the sport. Now, you can't make a six year old into a major leaguer as a six year old, but you can definitely set them up on a path to hate baseball and not become a major leaguer at six years old. Katie Vernoy 38:38 Sure. Curt Widhalm 38:40 And so the developmental factors at that age are just around being able to have fun in relation to a sport becoming an area of interest. Now we're talking about the typically high schoolers, maybe post high school into college, but usually high schoolers. This phase is the investment phase into sports. This is where it needs for those people who are going into that elite caliber of athlete track. This is where the investment to get there really has its basis in most sports. And this is where it's going to be more time playing the game more time practicing more time traveling more time doing the extra things to fit in that create the basis for either being able to compete at the next level. It might be a traveling team. It might be an all star team. It might be you know, moving into the collegiate ranks, that people who don't make those same kinds of investments typically don't get. And it's not just playing well on the field. It's also doing all of the connecting with other coaches and getting your highlight reels up onto YouTube so that way they're shareable and getting you noticed by other people, that ends up taking up a bigger portion of your life. Now, I don't know if you remember being a teenager? Katie Vernoy 40:12 Are you saying something about my age, Curt? Curt Widhalm 40:15 I'm saying that for a lot of people who don't remember all of the other parts of being a teenager, there's also your social development, there's also wanting a girlfriend or a boyfriend or wanting to not have to, you know, train and perform every single day. And it's being able to help clarify what some of the internal goals are towards this kind of a pathway. I obviously did not become a professional athlete, I did not get offered any sort of collegiate, you know, hey, we're really wanting you to come out and be a star on our team. In fact, I got exactly one letter in the four sports that I played in high school, I got a letter from one university being like, if maybe you're kind of interested, you can come and try out as a walk on at our very teeny, tiny college. And I chose not to do that whatsoever. I'm fairly certain that they sent this letter out to everybody. Katie Vernoy 41:28 Got it. So that wasn't your your specific experience. Curt Widhalm 41:34 But looking back at my own specific experience, one of my high school classmates did play Major League Baseball. And so there is a little bit of a comparison here that the investment that he made into sports was much greater than mine, I pursued a lot of different interests. I was in clubs, I had jobs I had, I didn't have girlfriends. He did. But, but his development became more and more specified towards baseball, the older that we became, and it paid off for him and took a lot of extra training for him to do that. That was more and more sports specific. Katie Vernoy 42:24 Yeah - Yeah, I mean, my experience was more I was, I was performing elitely as a singer of all things. So I was spending tons and tons of time on singing and making sure that I could speak and sing at the right times, and, and all of that. So there was a little of that, that I experienced, I did not get a music scholarship, but I didn't want to continue to pursue music. So it wasn't a thing. But my dad actually was a an athlete on and was recruited for a football team. And I actually was born while he was there. And, and so that the stories were all around that, you know, really how his life was centered around being a football player. And, and so to me, it is a very, it's a center point of a, an identity. But I think there are other pieces that go into it. I wasn't just a singer, My dad wasn't just a football player, there were other things that went into that, and, and to me, and now neither of us are doing those things professionally. So it's not the same thing. But I think there is an element of how balanced can a life be when you're pursuing this higher, higher goal, because it seems like the amount of time it takes for, especially depending on the sport, but the amount of time it takes, and the focus and the the need to be on your game, even when you're not playing your game. Because of the impacts on your body. And when you need to show up and when you need to peak and all those things, it seems like it would be hard to have a balanced life. Curt Widhalm 44:03 And for those on that trajectory towards becoming an elite athlete, that you are working typically with teenagers or very young adults, to get them to be able to take a step back and looking at how the things in their life serve as a balance within what their primary identity goal as an athlete is. For instance, the people who you know, typically are elite college athletes tend to date other elite college athletes because their training cycles end up needing to be around people who a) understand it b) you know, kind of have their own thing to do that. But c), and maybe most importantly, aren't interfering with their own cycle, that there's exceptions to every relationship rule - everybody don't send us you know, complaints on that - but but this kind of a pairing is really where it's the day to day intricacies of it, of being able to find the hobbies that you can rest and relax with, but don't become so consuming that they become the side hustle that interferes with being able to go out and perform at the top of your game at the right point in your macro cycles. Katie Vernoy 45:25 So there really is kind of a curation of the people around you when you're that focused. Curt Widhalm 45:31 Yes. And this is, you know, really where the mentality and the pathway to get to some of these multi million paying jobs in those areas where there are those jobs, or the areas that don't necessarily have all of the, you know, flash and sizzle - the, you know, non revenue, sports and colleges, that that does end up having a lot of reliance on parents to pay for things. You know, a lot of, you know, division one college athletes get like five meals per week provided by the school as part of their educational allowance. Going back to offensive lineman, I was showing Katie a video - we'll link to this in the show notes - of an offensive lineman who may need four or 5000 calories a day, is not getting 5000 calories a day off of five meals a week from the school cafeteria. And, and so the food bills for these kinds of athletes end up becoming exorbitant. But it's also something where the video that we're gonna share shows that the relationship to not only foods but also to the people around you can be something that's greatly impactful and a consideration that we have to have with the kind of athlete and the kind of sport that we're working with. Because, in this video, for those of you who aren't going to go and watch it, he blends up grits, a couple of bananas, six scrambled eggs, peanut butter, and red Gatorade, I will forever die on the Hill that Gatorade flavors are only based on the color that they are, but blends it up, chugs it down. And this video went out on social media kind of went viral. And a couple of weeks later, he's like, I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of this. I do this a couple of times a day, in addition to all of these other giant meals that I eat. And so the maintenance of having a day to day life as an elite athlete has a lot of things beyond just what they're doing out on the field. But it's the things that they put themselves into, in order to continue to show up even when they don't want to. And what really ends up separating out the people that do show up every day who do continue to perform. And the people that you kind of keep bringing this question back to of like, well, you know, those who are considering maybe not, the difference in that grit is the ability to accept some of these roles that being in this particular sport for them end up having as a part of that sport society, Katie Vernoy 48:25 I hear you, I understand what you're saying. And I have this other element that I think about, which is folks who are talented, they enjoy the sport. But getting to college sports is critical, so they can afford to go to college. And there's this other element of I need to earn the money. And it becomes - it has a different flavor to it. And there's also a big push from the people around them. Like if you don't do this, you can't go to college, we can't afford it. Or this is how you're going to make your mark like it seems like and maybe it's both can be true that someone really wants to pursue this. And they're, they're leaning into it. And it's still hard and all those things, but that the people I'm talking about are people who do make it and it's sacrificing completely, not just to the sport and the talent they have around the sport and the skills they develop on the sport but also to the financial reward. Curt Widhalm 49:27 I will say from being around this community long enough talking with enough parents and athletes themselves. That is a myth. As far as college being paid for by sports that the number of available athletic scholarships for the vast majority of athletes who are participating in sports get there. They're paying more money to participate in sports, get these extra trainings and this kind of stuff than what their scholarships will actually end up paying out statistically. Katie Vernoy 50:00 That makes sense. I think there's another piece of getting into a good college and being able to up their ability to do those things. I mean, to me, it seems, it feels a little bit - this is the wrong word, but I can't think of a better one - mercenary. Like it feels like I have to do this like that who, ah, because of this end goal, I mean, is that just all a myth? Curt Widhalm 50:23 No. People do get into that mindset. And it's being able to help channel the mindset into when they eventually hit the reality of that not being what's actually true. Katie Vernoy 50:36 Got it. Curt Widhalm 50:37 And so, you know, this is where, you know, as much as I crap on CBT. This is where CBT really ends up working well with a lot of athletes as far as being able to look at some of those specific mindsets and challenge some of those ideas. And even beyond CBT, particularly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, ends up being something that really helps to balance out some of these concerns that you're bringing up with the realities of the environments that these kinds of clients are operating in, in their day to day life. Katie Vernoy 51:13 Are there cultural considerations here that we're not talking about yet? Curt Widhalm 51:17 There will be I think that those are going to depend not only on a, the particular client cultures that people are facing, whether it's race, gender, economic, but I think that there's also culture within individual sports that are going to be unique, and there's going to be a lot of intersectionality about, I'm acknowledging that. And that goes way beyond the scope of the introduction of these ideas today. And those are largely going to be dependent on first looking at it from the sport perspective first, and then all of those other intersectional identities. I mean, one of the major ongoing ones today is the role of trans athletes. And that's going to be pages and pages of an hours of discussion that I'm not qualified to be the one leading a discussion on that, nor am I, the one who would be the best for you to listen to on that. Katie Vernoy 52:18 I guess the other element of the the cultural aspects are also in how the system is set up around an athlete given some of their demographics. So let's, let's table the trans athletes conversation, because I think that is beyond the scope of this conversation. And I don't think we should shortchange that conversation. But I think there there are, are ways in which people are going to interact around sports, the sports they choose, but also the society and the system that builds up around them. And so to me, it feels like understanding that better would be helpful, because I think we're talking about kind of athletes in a vacuum almost to this point. Curt Widhalm 53:03 And it's looking at the ways that we even conceive of it. You know, if anybody is getting a phone call of, hey, this caliber of athletes wants to be your client, there's an excitement of like, I get to be a part of this world. And owning your own relationship to sports and athletics is a really key part of it, because you don't want to be, you know, fanboying or fangirling out to your clients in front of you, that's a easy way to have them quickly move on to somebody else. But it's also looking at the ways that they end up relating to, you know, any other even within their own sports, any other athlete and the way that that sport gets looked at differently. And when I was in high school, I played offensive and defensive line on in football. And so I have a particular appreciation for the unappreciated guys in the trenches, you know, your dad is a center I appreciate nobody is looking at the left guard being like, that is somebody that we want to you know, really go and hang out with everybody's looking at the quarterback, the the flashy, wide receivers those guys. And I've seen, you know, social media posts from some former offensive line people who are like, I'm more famous for how much weight I've lost since playing than anything that I did in my 10 year career as an athlete. Katie Vernoy 54:37 Yeah, well, yeah. And even talking earlier about how you were saying how, like, you know, after you retire, you know, the body size changes and depending on what sport you're in the body size changes. So I'm assuming as a football player, you were a little bit larger and then getting down to marathon size. My dad's a cyclist, so you know, you just go a totally different body shape and it's it's a very weird thing, but we're off topic, but so the system's around them. So it depends on the sport, it depends on how the team interacts. What are the different presentations on individual versus team? Curt Widhalm 55:11 So individual sports, you're out there all by yourself, you know, whether it's a one to one sports, something like boxing, wrestling, MMA you are out there, and it's you against somebody else. And there is no place to hide if you lose. Athletes coming from individual sports, or, you know, there's also, you know, individual sports like marathon running, where it's everybody's competing all at once. Athletes in individual sports tend to be less resilient, when it comes to not performing at their level of expectations. And this is because of unique protective factors in the team environment where you win as a team, you lose as a team, it might be one player's mistake out there that cost a game. But overall, the the positive athletic environments end up having a team identity first. And so there's a lot more of being able to relate well to other teammates that helps make athletes from team sports responds to things better, they're less likely to, you know, present with things like depression, or that depressive adjustment disorder type diagnostics, whereas individual athletes are putting themselves in a position to be evaluated and having to face the ownership and sometimes shame of not placing or performing as well as they individually felt that they could. Katie Vernoy 56:42 What about the the kind of hybrid sports so like, you know, a lot of I'm thinking gymnastics, I'm thinking the track team, like I had individual events when I was running track. And then I also did a relay. And so obviously, the relay is a team sport and or team event and you know, doing the 880 was individual. But when you have both of those elements within how you work, I'm thinking specifically of like gymnastics, you have the individual, and then you also have the team scores, how does that impact an athlete? Curt Widhalm 57:16 So and this is, again, another opportunity to gently point out the competency of knowing the sports that your athletes are participating in. You're specifically talking about gymnastics as a individual in a team thing, which is particular to Olympic Gymnastics, whereas at like collegiate gymnastics, it's about the team score. And that's where you'll see a lot more, you know, of that celebratory team aspects that goes along with collegiate gymnasts, as you might in comparison to seeing more of that individually focused Olympic gymnast thing. There's also entirely different scoring systems. But you do bring up a good point, as far as some of that hybrid aspect, I think that this speaks to what good social systems around athletes end up having in common. And a big piece of that is the opportunities for inclusion in a supportive training community. And one of the athletics that I did in high school was one of the things that you listed was track and field. And what I can say is that I did not contribute very often to the overall team score. I did once and that is forever my favorite day on the track team. Katie Vernoy 58:37 Nice. Curt Widhalm 58:39 And there were people on my team that carried us to second place in the state my senior year that I and I did not contribute to that team score whatsoever. Katie Vernoy 58:52 It sounds like we were similar high school athletes. Curt Widhalm 58:56 But that's that environment did is there was a lot of support, there was a lot of, hey, you're out there performing as an individual, your success is supported by the team that in comparison to you know, more of those individualized sports even, you know, as I'm looking back on it now, in comparison to other sports, like this - wrestling, cross country where there's an individual component and a team component. I think it's gonna vary depending on the sport some, Katie Vernoy 59:29 Okay Curt Widhalm 59:29 It's and maybe it's just because the other teams that I was on didn't place but it felt like, you know, in wrestling that the individual accolades mattered more than the team ones, whereas in track and field both seem to really come and maybe it was the environment that our particular track coaches had really set up well there. Katie Vernoy 59:50 Well, let's, let's get to a little bit more of of what these social systems should look like. Because it seems to me having a really nice supportive training community is one of them. What else should an athlete be looking at? What else should therapists be supporting their clients and accessing? Curt Widhalm 1:00:08 Exciting some research from Hendrickson at all hear that there are certain components of a successful athletic environment that share a unique number of features. And that first one is that supportive training community. The second one that they identified as having role models, in other words, people who've done this and done it well, and this is a community that is, you know, elite athletes that is largely based on, they're gonna listen to people who have been there and done that, where maybe, you know, a lot of coaches and stuff do come from their own high performance, athletic backgrounds themselves, Of hey, I can trust you, because you've done this. The third factor, and this is really where therapists can either get on board with this or get in the way of this is having the support of the sporting goals by the wider environment, you are part of the wider environment. Katie Vernoy 1:01:08 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 1:01:09 And if where you're not, you know, supportive of how this particular athlete fits into the team, then you're going to not make it. Other components that Hendrickson et al discuss is focusing on long term development rather than short term success. Where are you at in your cycle, you're outperforming you know, where you're at in your macro cycle, you need to back off, this is the goal of this particular workout or this particular race, it's not necessarily to win, it's for you to get this kind of a performance out of it. Katie Vernoy 1:01:43 That makes sense Curt Widhalm 1:01:44 Integration of factors outside of sports, such as school, family, other components to the environment, dating, relationships, those kinds of things. And a coherent organizational culture. And this is where, you know, I've heard from some of my clients before that, they knew that t

Those of you who have listened to the show, know that I am no big fan of “employer branding” because I believe it is generic and unrealistic. Often selling an image of unicorns & rainbows topped off with free lunch. To me, job advertisements feel like the car dealer who advertises a low price just to get you in the door only to sell you a lemon at the end of the day. We all understand that every company has its challenges. So why not paint an accurate picture of what the company REALLY is once you start working there? Simply sharing the good, bad & the ugly of your company is the first step to eliminating bad hires. It attracts the right people, repels those who don't align with the company values and eliminates the surprises that cause people to question their decision to join your company. Today we discuss: Employer branding: why & when How to brand in the most effective way Challenge today? Employer branding: Marketing and branding are not the same thing Purpose to employer brand strategy is different than consumer brand strategyTalent was the commodity and technology was differentiator That has switched People leaving companies in droves Not connecting with the right people Differentiation and purposeCareer decision is transactional Operating tactically Why is this important to the company? C-suite are talking about employer branding Approach without strategy causes more problems than it solves Rick's Nuggets Employer branding is strictly a top of funnel activityConvinced ourselves that EVERYONE need to be attracted to the brand Does nothing to ensure that the right person is being hired Top of funnel is a vanity metric How do we solve the problem? Understand the organization Gaps are? Foundation of the culture What the people strategy needs to align to Culture you have rather than the culture you need Strategy Reputation (what & why) Specific & tangible that aligns with the business Career catalyst (career path) , culture (sense of belonging, great place to work) & citizenship (impact you have on society, doing good) Expectation (how) Give & Get What the organization wants & needs in return Comfortable with what you have to give Adds more value, more authentic enables greater appreciation Uncover a clear proposition Things that repel most people attract the right people! Polarize your audience Experience Validate the claim & the experience Navy seals- Hell week. It has a specific reason in the experience Employee experience is more important than candidate experience Know exactly where to spend your time & resource Job AdvertisementStory right Needs to be a true preview on what to expect What keeps people “Dissuade people not to join” and you couldn't lie, what would you say? Rick's Nuggets Only need to see one person to fill one roleLess candidate flow is the new badge of honor! Key Takeaways that the Audience can plug into their business today! -Value: Get specific - Be clear on the talent you need to grow your company and what it takes to really thrive. This helps define the reputation you need as an employer and the proposition you have to offer to make it all worthwhile. Show Vulnerability - Tell a refreshingly honest story of where you are, where you're going, what's missing and left to build .. show people a very real picture where they can add value and find purpose in their work. Own the truth - Include the harsh realities and adversities of your employee experience - 99% of people may run for the hills, but the 1% of people who lean in will likely be the best candidates & employees for your company. Plus it'll save you a ton of admin and distraction from a blizzard of unqualified candidates. Finally word :- this strategic view of building and defining culture with a simple employer brand can never come too soon. Do it immediately.

Monica Hershaft is one interesting practitioner, and on a recent Phoenix trip, I had a chance to experience her very unique flavor of muscle testing and nutritional prescription. She is a bestselling author, motivational speaker and holistic health practitioner and nutritional consultant with Advanced Clinical Training Certification in NRT. After 10 years building one of the top-rated holistic health practices in Los Angeles, she developed ‘Treat the Source' a remote online program that helps those suffering from chronic symptoms who can't get a true diagnosis, to get their health and life back. Monica understands that just because your labs are normal, it doesn't mean you're not sick and she can explain why that happens and how to fix it! Too many legitimately sick people are being put on anti-depressants because the doctors can't figure out what's wrong with them and their labs are normal. Monica is here to tell you that you are not crazy and there are answers! Being plagued with her own mystery illness for 10+ years after participating in a popular detox program, Monica knows first-hand the frustration that chronic symptoms and an improper diagnosis can create for those struggling with their health. Having this personal experience has allowed Monica to not only heal her clients physically, but to understand them on a deep, personal level. Monica's conflict over incorporating animal protein and going Paleo in order to recover her health was the most difficult dilemma she had ever faced because she was born and raised Vegan. Her father is famed Animal Rights Activist, Founder, and Holocaust Survivor, Alex Hershaft. Her 10-year chronic, mystery illness finally resolved through a combination of adopting an altered Paleo style diet along with eliminating toxic overload because diet and nutrition alone was not enough to help restore immune function. This ethical crossroads was heartbreaking and riddled with doubt due to her upbringing and knowledge of the factory farming conditions. She will never consume animal protein that has been conventionally farmed, opting only for sourcing from grass fed, pasture raised Paleo-centric farms. Her father's many talks on the connection between animals being killed for food and their family's experience in the Holocaust, being transported in cattle cars to be killed in the camps, weighed heavily on her decision. Her father, Alex Hershaft, is well known all over the world for his Animal Rights organization and his many talks and videos about the connection between the Holocaust and the Vegan lifestyle. Monica was heartbroken that she was unable to recover her health as a Vegan. After working one on one with countless patients in her private practice located in Los Angeles, she realized it was time to create a program that could help more people on a wider scale and that led to the development of her online digital course "Treat the Source-The 3 Pillar Holistic Health Repair Program" to help people who are struggling with chronic symptoms and can't get a true diagnosis. This 12-week online program provides tips and tools as well as weekly actions and hacks to help them take their health back into their own hands no matter where they live. In this episode, you'll discover: -How a debilitating chronic "mystery" illness led to Monica's unique practice... -Breakdown of the evaluation and treatment Ben will receive... -First phase of treatment: muscle testing... -Body scan... -Reviewing the results of the two-part exam... -How to partake of Monica's expertise, even if you don't live in Phoenix... -And much more!

There are tremendous health benefits to strength training - including lowering inflammation, supporting hormones, mitochondrial function, metabolic health & immune health. But based on the messages and questions we received, a lot of women out there are intimidated by strength training. Erin wanted to bring on someone who could help, so she's chatting with Nora Matthew about how to approach strength training in a sustainable way - without burning out. Because the benefits of exercise only exist if you're not *overdoing* it, which kind of flies in the face of a lot of mainstream fitness advice. And unfortunately, burnout is a trend that both Erin and Nora have seen working with thousands of women. If you want to be working out more, but you're nervous about how to start…OR you are already exercising, but feeling burnt out & unsure of what you're doing wrong… this episode is for you! This conversation will help you get started (or slow down!) with confidence. Nora owns Her Strength Studio, a female focused strength training gym in upstate NY that primarily utilizes the modalities of kettlebell, barbell, and bodyweight for functional strength training. They offer small group personal training with each client following their own curated program based on their goals, exercise history, injuries and time commitment. Her Strength Studio also offers a selection of self-led online programs and remote personal training for those who are out of the area. In this episode: -Our opinions on the best types of exercise for women's health [5:34] -Nora's journey to strength training (as a former athlete and mom of 4!) [6:54] -The biggest problems in the fitness industry & how doing more isn't always better [10:54] -Considerations for intense workouts [16:20] -Exercise sustainability: when you're in it for the long haul [20:50] -The benefits of going to a coach for guidance [22:18] -Feeling sore post-workout: how to gauge good vs. not good [24:37] -Red flags that you're pushing too hard [31:27] -Why you should prioritize form/technique over intensity [32:46] -How to know when it's time to take time off – and why you should [33:51] -When to know it's time to push for more [36:47] -Specific benefits of resting between sets [39:40] -Where to get started if you're feeling intimidated by lifting weights [44:19] -Nora's tips for finding a coach [47:48] -At home exercise options [49:22] FOR OUR FULL LIST OF LINKS + RESOURCES, HEAD TO: https://www.thefunktionalnutritionist.com/podcast/192-sustainable-strength-training-nora-matthew

In continuing our discussion on the current global supply chain crisis, we've seen that companies have been considering onshoring many of their production centers in order to keep up with slowdowns in deliveries from international ports. Deglobalization was an issue even before the pandemic started, due to ongoing trade wars, but would that solve some of the issues that the crisis has presented? And what are the key ESG factors that come into play when managing with a workforce overseas? In the next chapter of this supply chain series on Disruptive Forces, Marco Spinar, Portfolio Manager for Emerging Market Equities, speaks with Anu Rajakumar to share his insights on how emerging countries are managing in the crisis, how companies with offshore labor are implementing best ESG practices and what the opportunities are across production hubs globally.

What Can Therapists Say About Celebrities? The ethics of public statements Curt and Katie chat about whether therapists should make public statements and diagnose public figures. This is our first continuing education eligible podcast, discussing the ethics of speaking out about the mental health of people in the public eye. We explore the origins of the Goldwater rule, a group of psychiatrists who purposefully broke it, and how masters level organizations address this concern. We also provide you with some ideas about how you can make this decision for yourself. In this podcast episode we look at the ethics of modern therapists diagnosing public figures For our first continuing education worthy podcast, we wanted to address something that is becoming more and more prevalent in our field: therapists speaking out about the mental health of public figures. What is the Goldwater Rule? The history of the Goldwater Rule The impact of DSM II (and the update to DSM III) The original intention of the rule versus the current interpretation of the Goldwater Rule Fears from the American Psychiatric Association that seems to have driven the development of (and on-going commitment to) this rule How the Goldwater Rule (and Similar Ethical Principles) Have Shifted Over Time Perspective from one of the original framers of the Goldwater Rule Moving from teleological to deontological interpretations How the internet and social media has changed the landscape The American Psychiatric Association expanding their commitment to the Goldwater Rule, stating reasons psychiatrists should not assess The Goldwater “Caveat” or “Principle” versus Goldwater “Rule” or even Goldwater “Doctrine” Beyond diagnosis to restricting any comment on the behavior or mental health of a public figure The stance on this ethic from American Psychological Association and the large Masters Level Organizations (AAMFT, ACA, NASW, and CAMFT, for example) The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump – the Public Diagnosis of an American President The group of psychiatrists who pushed back on the Goldwater Rule The Duty to Warn – does it apply here? What are the challenges of accurately diagnosing Trump? Where expertise is helpful (and how the public can water down diagnosis) Current Guidelines for Modern Therapists Whether diagnosis is required for a duty to warn The tactic of putting forward information without drawing conclusions (and why we don't like this strategy) Specific guidance from the professional organizations on what therapists can and cannot do Taking special care in how one decides what they say about an individual in public settings Using one's professional judgement and special care Cautions When Using Your Professional Judgment The potential harm of discussing diagnosis on social media Bias, cultural factors, and other information that could make an inaccurate or harmful diagnosis Mental health stigma and other concerns related to diagnostic language (ICD-10, DSM-V) Speaking outside of your professional expertise Questions to ask yourself before making a public statement Our Generous Sponsor for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: Buying Time LLC Buying Time is a full team of Virtual Assistants, with a wide variety of skill sets to support your business.

Curt Widhalm 01:28 Welcome back modern therapists. This is the Modern Therapist Survival Guide. I'm Curt Widhalm with Katie Vernoy. And this is our first continuing education eligible podcast and we're gonna go a little bit long format today. Today we're going to be exploring an ethical issue around therapists making public statements. And this is becoming what would seemingly be more and more prevalent as more and more of us have access to things like social media outlets. But the underpinnings of a lot of this debate starts back in the 1960s with little story about Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater. Now Barry Goldwater was running for president in the 1964 election. And for those of you American history buffs, you probably know, he did not win. And this, this is partially blamed on the way that the Lyndon Johnson campaign framed Barry Goldwater, in response to Fact Magazine presented a special issue that was titled The unconscious of a conservative a special issue on the mind of Barry Goldwater. This was in response to a play on the words of Barry Goldwater's book the conscience of a conservative so what fact magazine had done is they had sent out a survey to over 12,000, psychiatrists, of whom about 2400 responded, and this was asking these psychiatrist opinions of the mental health status of Senator Barry Goldwater. The results of the survey range a little bit all over the place. About 27% of the overall people responded, said that Mr. Goldwater was mentally fit, 23% said that they didn't know enough to make a judgement, and a whole lot said things like Mr. Goldwater is a megalomaniac, paranoid, grossly psychotic, and some even offered specific diagnoses, including schizophrenia and narcissistic personality disorder. Katie Vernoy 03:49 Oh, my goodness, that sounds pretty familiar. Curt Widhalm 03:54 Yeah, this has come up recently, in... Katie Vernoy 03:58 Just a little. Just a little bit. Curt Widhalm 04:01 And part of the point of today's episode is where some of this debate has been in the last several years as far as America, how the rules have gotten to where we are, and what this means for us at this point in time. Now, a lot has been said, and we will get into this a little bit later in the episode about some of the more recent publications and recent debates in the field, including books like The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump by Therapy Reimagined speaker Bandy X. Lee and some of her colleagues. We will be discussing her later, and kind of where our responses are as a profession and some recommendations at the end of the episode. So, getting back to Barry Goldwater, Katie Vernoy 04:50 Must we? I'm joking, I'm joking. Curt Widhalm 04:54 So Goldwater ended up suing fact magazine and the publishers for libel based on this and Goldwater ended up winning this. Now, in the cases, Goldwater was issued $1 as compensatory damages and $75,000 in punitory damages to the publisher of that magazine, Ralph Ginsberg. And this was upheld by United States Court of Appeals in the Second Circuit, and the Supreme Court's denied a petition to review it. So, Goldwater ended up prevailing, but at the time, feeling like they have a little egg on their face of all of these psychiatrists making public statements, the American Psychiatric Association said, this is something where this might erode the trust in our professionals, and therefore our profession. We can't have this. We have a sense of urgency that we need to address this, let's take nine years to make a rule. Katie Vernoy 06:03 Nine years for a very important role. Well at least, we can't say that they didn't think it out, take time to really consider. Curt Widhalm 06:11 I point out a little bit of the nine years because what happened at the time is, we were under the guidance of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association's Second edition. Now, this was during a building towards the DSM three, which was going to come out several years later in 1980. But for those of us who weren't practicing back in 1964, and answering questionnaires from Fact Magazine, there was a pretty fundamental difference between the DSM two and the DSM three. And that difference was the DSM two was largely based in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theory, which led to a lot of conjecture and potential bias in evaluating clients. With the DSM three helps move us towards today's DSMs is created more of behavioral checklist observations. And so what many of these psychiatrist were conjecturing about Mr. Goldwater is assumptions about his upbringing, assumptions about the relationships that he was having, and the underpinnings of wherever they're believed psychosis and megalomania, diagnostics and observations about him would be based out of. Katie Vernoy 07:40 so it really switched from being based in more of a clinician theoretical orientation to what we know more at this point with the DSM 3, 4, 5, 5TR that's coming out that it moves to more of observable and behavioral criteria. Am I hearing that right? Curt Widhalm 07:59 You are hearing that absolutely correct. And so what the DSM three allowed is, if somebody's not getting out of bed, that's a feature of depression. Katie Vernoy 08:12 Yes Curt Widhalm 08:13 Not based in whatever the DSM two criteria were before. Overall, as far as protecting, you know, diagnostics, making inter-rater diagnostics, a little bit more consistent. This is generally seen as a good thing. Katie Vernoy 08:29 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 08:31 But some of the debates in the 60s and 70s, and has continued today is in the APA's interpretations of the Goldwater principle - I'm emphasizing principle here at this point - is that there's some fear that if psychiatrists are making statements about political candidates, that if those candidates win, particularly executive offices within the US federal government, there may be fear that the federal government would reduce the reimbursement rates given to (particularly) psychiatrist for their services, under things like Medicare, and Medicaid. Katie Vernoy 09:16 So it was - there was money - money was talking here. Curt Widhalm 09:19 Well, not necessarily any direct threats that I can find in my research about the setup of this, but there is the potential fear and who knows there may be a president that might punish particular agencies or sectors of the economy, if they are in fact elected. I don't know if that could potentially happen, but that's where the American Psychiatric Association's concerns seem to have been lying. Katie Vernoy 09:47 And it seems like they may not have been too far off. So what was the original intention of the Goldwater principle then? Curt Widhalm 09:58 So in some of our Research here and a lot of our conversation here right now so far as some history that is provided by the British Journal of Psychiatry article called "It is ethical to diagnose a public figure one has not personally examined". This is a debate written by John Gartner, Alex Lankford and Eileen O'Brien. Now in this, John Gardner had mentioned some personal communications that he had had with Dr. Allen Dyer, who was the last living member of the original APA ethics committee that drafted the APA Goldwater response in 1974. Katie Vernoy 10:40 Wow Curt Widhalm 10:41 This did lead me to looking at some more information that Allen Dyer has written and fortunately, Dr. Dyer has a blog, where he has written about the evolution of the so called Goldwater rule and ethical analysis. Katie Vernoy 10:58 Can we put that in our show notes? Curt Widhalm 11:00 We will include links and or references to everything that we can in our show notes. So this is from 2017 from this "Evolution of the so called Goldwater rule and ethical analysis." And from Dr. Dyer, I'm quoting here, "the first thing to appreciate about the so called Goldwater rule is that it is not a rule but rather a principle. The APA's code of ethics is the annotations applicable to psychiatry, of the AMA principle of medical ethics, which explicitly state that the principles are quote, 'not laws, but standards of conduct, which define the essentials of honorable behavior for the physician.' end quote - Much of the current discussion applies rule based legalistic thinking to a matter of professional judgment based on principle. In ethical theory, this would be a category mistake, attempting to transform a teleological end-based approach into a deontological or rule-based approach. Katie Vernoy 12:07 Okay, ethics nerd, I was trying to follow you there. We've got teleological, and deontological. I think I'm gonna need a little bit of an explanation. Curt Widhalm 12:18 Okay. So these are two different ways of looking at ethics and keeping this as kind of a shorter conversation because this isn't the point of the episode. But I think it helps to clarify what Dr. Dyer is saying here. Teleological is a type of consequentialist ethics. And what that means is that we need to look at the outcome of an action to determine if it was morally good or not. Whereas a deontological approach would be if there is any chance that an action could cause harm, you should not do that action. Katie Vernoy 12:59 Okay. So if we're looking at deontological, it would be if something could be harmful, like client's in crisis in your office, need to be hospitalized? Do you drive them to the hospital or not? It sounds like a deontological deontological? Curt Widhalm 13:18 deontologist, Katie Vernoy 13:19 A deontologist, which doesn't sound like what it is, if a deontologist would say you should never have a client in your car, you should never drive your client to the hospital, you should never manage your client crisis alone. Curt Widhalm 13:32 Yes, all of all of those lawyers and all of those insurance agents that would say, you know, oh, you got into an accident with with your client in the car, you are at fault for this. That is a deontological way of thinking. Katie Vernoy 13:48 Okay, and then the teleological way would be that if you believe that you can be safe, you know this client needs to get to the hospital soon. You know, there's there's no transportation available, and it's going to be hours and hours. And this client is decompensating and needs to get to the hospital, but you have a strong relationship, you feel safe, you put them in your car, you get them over to the hospital, because the end justifies the means? Curt Widhalm 14:15 Close and I guess maybe the the place of clarifying this is with the correct intent that if you reasonably believe that you could help this client get to the hospital and it was reasonably possible and something were bad to happen along the way - It's kind of more of the Good Samaritan approach that the intentions were correct. The the fallout of it ended up being maybe not ideal, but if there's the potential to cause good and as long as the intentions were good, you can morally judge that as good. Katie Vernoy 14:53 Okay, but that still is sounding a little bit like the ends justify the means Curt Widhalm 14:57 You You You are correct here - In that this is what Dr. Dyer is saying - this was - he saying that this was written as a way of saying, use your judgment. Be, you know, predictably well. This, this subcommittee said, this is teleological. This is consequential. Have some professional judgment in doing this. Katie Vernoy 15:21 Mm hmm. Curt Widhalm 15:23 And what has happened over the last 40 plus years is it has been interpreted through an entirely different and competing moral viewpoint that everyone seems to be taking as well "just don't do this." Katie Vernoy 15:38 Yeah. I see the complexity, though. Because if we're looking at maybe not exactly the ends justify the means, but something where we are relying on individual professionals to have a good assessment of their motives, to have a good assessment of what the consequence would be for public diagnosis, for example. Do we feel like we can trust our professionals to make that judgment? That the consequences are sufficiently positive and being able to work in that gray? Curt Widhalm 16:14 And what Dr. Dyer is saying is that the APA says, No, those individual people can't make that decision. Katie Vernoy 16:24 So we're looking at people making something very concrete, black and white, that actually has a lot of gray in it, and it's supposed to be professional judgment, not this is good, or this is bad. Curt Widhalm 16:37 Yes. Now, Dr. Dyer goes on to say the second thing to appreciate is that the Goldwater caveat - called rule and understood by many psychiatrist as an absolute prohibition - is, in fact, embedded in an affirmative obligation of physicians to society, quote, "a responsibility to participate in activities contributing to the improvement of the community and the betterment of public health." I take what Dr. Dyer is saying here, as the intention behind this was that psychiatrists should still be looking at improving the overall communities and public health that they work in, that there's an honor of being a medical professional to serving the greater good of society. And that this Goldwater caveat is that we maybe don't make diagnostics about people without evaluating them. But maybe when we feel that there is a sense of danger to somebody, we can use our professional - and in their case, medical - knowledge to be able to make communications about that. Katie Vernoy 17:48 I'm not clear that that's what the Goldwater rule is being interpreted as now. Right. I mean, it seems like even saying anything has gotten to be taboo, according to the American Psychiatric Association. Curt Widhalm 18:03 Oh, wait, there's more. Katie Vernoy 18:05 Okay, okay. Keep going, keep going. Curt Widhalm 18:09 Now, we also need to consider what the landscape of 1960s and 1970s world is as far as available information. I grew up in a part of the country at a point in my life, where, with an antenna and good weather, we could get maybe four television stations, the internet did not yet exist. Cell phones were a thing that was only imagined on the Jetsons that Katie Vernoy 18:40 You and me both buddy, you and me both. Curt Widhalm 18:43 This was several years after Mr. Goldwater was running for president. So the availability of information back at that time is much different than the landscape that we have today. Katie Vernoy 18:54 Sure Curt Widhalm 18:55 You know, I in my pocket normally carry a device that has more computing power than the first spaceships that went to the moon. Now, what I choose to do with it is make memes and send videos of cats to my wife. But I could also go and pull up videos of just about any public figure in a variety of different contexts that would allow for me as a mental health professional to at least say, yeah, what you're doing kind of looks "sus" as the kids who are using the language these days Katie Vernoy 19:33 It's like "kind of looks what?" - suspect is that what you're saying is like for the old people in the audience, it's suspect that their your, your behavior looks suspect. All right? Curt Widhalm 19:44 Yes. Now, in the intervening years, this is back to Dr. Dyer's blog, points out that the 2013 version of the principles and annotations preserves the original language of the 1973 version. But the 2015 APA commentary on ethics and practice takes a more administrative and specific tone. It preserves the affirmative ethical principle, better... of improving the community and betterment of public health through education and evidence based science. But says rather than offering opinions about a specific person, as the best means of facilitating public education, in some circumstances, such as academic scholarships, about figures of historical importance, exploration of psychiatric issues, for example, diagnostic conclusions. May be reasonably provided that it has sufficient evidence-base and is subject to peer review and academic scrutiny. It just means that you don't just go out as an individual and say, Here's my opinion. It needs to have a little bit of consensus here. But what the APA ethics committee did, instead, is started to reflect language that psychiatrists should not make any public statements about anybody no matter what. And this was really the beginnings of where the dangerous case of Donald Trump's how authored by Bandy X. Lee and colleagues ended up being a really big part of the debate here over the last now six years. And what the APA was seemingly trying to do is take the voice out of people saying, "hey, trust me, I'm a doctor. I know what I'm saying." And there were several questions and published across, you know, a number of different op eds, some that appeared in places like the New York Times that led to many of the professional organizations coming down more strictly on the emergence of the Goldwater rule. And this is where in March 2017, the American Psychiatric Association released a statement saying the APA remains committed to supporting the Goldwater rule. Katie Vernoy 22:13 Ah Curt Widhalm 22:14 And they gave three main points for the rationale of their opinion. Number one, when a psychiatrist comments about the behavior, symptoms, diagnosis, etc, of a public figure without consent, that psychiatrist has violated the principle that psychiatric evaluations be conducted with consent or authorization. Katie Vernoy 22:35 So we're looking at consent as number one, Curt Widhalm 22:38 Yes. Katie Vernoy 22:38 Okay. Curt Widhalm 22:40 Number two, offering a professional opinion on an individual that a psychiatrist has not examined, is a departure from established methods of examination, which require careful study of medical history, and firsthand examination of the patient. Such behavior compromises both the integrity of the psychiatrist and the profession. Katie Vernoy 23:03 So that one sounds the most similar to the original intent, which is don't diagnose someone that you've not evaluated. Curt Widhalm 23:10 Right, Katie Vernoy 23:10 Right. Okay. And this is saying, don't do that, because it makes us look bad. Curt Widhalm 23:18 Pretty much, Katie Vernoy 23:19 Okay. Curt Widhalm 23:20 And third, when psychiatrists offer medical opinions about an individual they have not examined, they have the potential to stigmatize those with mental illness. Katie Vernoy 23:29 So we got there's no consent, it makes us look bad, and increases stigma. Curt Widhalm 23:36 Yes. Katie Vernoy 23:37 Okay. Curt Widhalm 23:39 Now, turning this as maybe a question to you. You and I have both listened to a little bit of the news here in the last several years. What have you heard Donald Trump being diagnosed with? Katie Vernoy 23:56 Malignant narcissism is one. He probably could be diagnosed with ADHD could potentially be diagnosed with psychopathy. I mean, like there's a lot of - sociopathy, like there's - which I guess is malignant narcissism, but I've heard a lot of different suggestions about what's possible. Curt Widhalm 24:17 And I've heard some people even suggesting things like dementia on top of that, just to be clear, these are things that Katie and I have heard, we're not actually Katie Vernoy 24:28 We're not saying they're true. We're not diagnosing in public people! Curt Widhalm 24:34 One of the op eds in the New York Times pointed out that in order for things like narcissism to be diagnosed, if you look in the DSM and particularly where we are today, the DSM five, that one of the features for diagnostics is that it has to be disturbing to the patient's themselves. Katie Vernoy 24:58 Hmm. Curt Widhalm 24:59 And therefore is actually an inaccurate use of a diagnostic, let alone the means to actually arrive there. Now, as I was mentioning earlier, there are lots of ways to get indirect observations of people these days. And maybe this calls into question the diagnosis or the diagnostic criteria of personality disorders where, hey, if one of the features of a personality disorder is that they're not bothered by the fact that they have that particular personality disorder, maybe that needs to be looked at in future DSMs. Maybe we'll talk to somebody someday about that. But in response to the APA reaffirming this Katie Vernoy 25:47 for the American Psychiatric Association Curt Widhalm 25:49 The American Psychiatric Association, in response to a op ed, published on New York times.com on March 7 2016, called "Should therapist analyze presidential candidates" on March 14 2016, the then president of the American Psychological Association - so taking this out of the medical realm and potentially a little bit more specific to providers of more traditional therapy - president of the American Psychological Association at the time, Dr. Susan H. McDaniel, wrote response to the article on whether therapists should analyze presidential candidates. And I'll read this in its entirety because it's about three paragraphs. "The American Psychological Association wholeheartedly agrees with Robert Klitzman PhD that neither psychiatrist nor psychologist should offer diagnoses of candidates, or any other living public figure they have never examined. Our association has declined requests from several reporters seeking referrals to psychologists who would make such speculations. Similar to the psychiatrist Goldwater rule, our Code of Ethics exhort psychologists to take precautions that any statements they make to the media are based on their professional knowledge, training or experience in accord with appropriate psychological literature and practice. And do not indicate that a professional relationship has been established with people in the public eye, including political candidates. When providing opinions of psychological characteristics, psychologists must conduct an examination adequate to support statements or conclusions. In other words, our ethical codes state that psychologists should not offer a diagnosis in the media of a living public figure they have not examined." Katie Vernoy 27:40 So just diagnosis, it sounds like it also is going further into things that might be within the realm of psychology and not diagnosis. It was saying nothing could be in your professional opinion, unless you've done a an evaluation. And then there would be confidentiality issues. So the question that I have is - it just don't talk about public figures at all? Curt Widhalm 28:06 That seems to be where both of the APAs are going with this language. Now, according to the Wikipedia article on the Goldwater rule, it is a citation needed statement on there. As you know, we're citing our references here. And I wasn't able to substantiate this claim that Dr. McDaniel received a lot of pushback from members of the American Psychological Association about her stance and interpretation of the American Psychological Association direction and intention with this, that apparently, many members of the American Psychological Association felt that this was too specific and restrictive. And that as long as they were framing it within the characteristics of hey, I haven't evaluated this guy, but based on these statements, and these misapplication of following through on his own things, yeah, this one presidential candidate seems to have this diagnosis. But of course, they were eventually talking about the opportunity to say this about Kanye West. Now, I recognize that most of our audience are probably not psychiatrists, and most of our audience are probably not psychologists. And so I want to create kind of some space as far as where do our other professional mental health associations take stances on these kinds of things. And that would be the American Counseling Association, the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists, National Association for Social Workers. And Katie and my participation with the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, while a state Organization, they have 30 plus 1000 members, we generally give them a say in national discussions as well. But before we jump to more of these masters levels organizations, Katie, what are you feeling as far as - can we be talking about people publicly? Katie Vernoy 30:16 So what I'm hearing is that you can, it's pretty clear that you should not diagnose publicly, I think the the folks who wrote The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump would disagree. But most of the time, so far, what you've talked about APA and APA, are saying don't diagnose. It seems like there's an ongoing discussion around whether we can give opinion on behavior. How are the psychiatrists and other folks about how are we analyzing that piece about... Can we talk about people in public? Curt Widhalm 30:52 So this is going back to that British Journal of Psychiatry. And back to the point made by John Gartner. He says that you don't have to diagnose to warn, in some cases, people may use public figures as a way of educating the public about diagnostic criteria, such as narcissistic personality disorder, for example, and let readers draw their own conclusions: 'Hey, I haven't evaluated this particular candidate. These kinds of behaviors are generally consistent with narcissistic personality disorder. Once again, I haven't evaluated this person, they're not a patient of mine. Make your own conclusions.' I don't necessarily like that as a full, you know, greenlight to go ahead and do this. I think that, as you pointed out at the beginning of the episode, that there's a lot of nuance to this conversation. And as professionals, we have to foresee some of the responsibility of saying, 'I'm not gonna draw the conclusions for you, but I'm drawing the conclusions for you,' is not really good discussion of public health. But what Gartner's argument is, is that in the bottom line is many people may feel the duty to warn, and a duty to warn does not require a multi axial diagnosis. And he uses the example of someone who's bringing a gun to your house, you only need to know that somebody is bringing a gun into your house. Katie Vernoy 32:29 Yeah, Curt Widhalm 32:29 A diagnosis is not needed. Katie Vernoy 32:31 When the question that I heard posed with it, or I read posed within that debate article, is that - Do we need opinions from psychological experts or psychiatric experts at all? Can we just not view it as a public as a general public? Can we not just view behavior and make our own assumptions and psychiatrists or therapists providing that expert opinion does more harm than good and isn't required? Curt Widhalm 33:05 It's a topic worth diving into, you know, part of where seeing the public really destigmatize mental health in a lot of ways - and we've seen this reflected in our practices and the need for mental health services over the last several years - is the public is a lot more open to talking about the challenges they face. But a lot of people misdiagnose without the robust background of training of how to properly assess people. And, you know, how many people are you going to see on social media that's, you know, complained about, oh, I'm O... I'm so OCD, I need to straighten out the books on my shelf. That's not really a diagnostic of obsessive compulsive disorder and tends to diminish what actual obsessive compulsive disorder is for those who properly have that condition. It's something where leaving this discussion out into the public really allows for things to be watered down in such a way that some of these diagnostics tend to lose all meaning. So to answer your question, I think that it's healthy to have professionals with a background to be able to offer this opinion, it's a matter of how it's done that is potentially there. But so far with the information that we're seeing from the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association, is that any professional opinion about any public figure seems to be forbidden. Katie Vernoy 34:41 So we're stuck with the experts being silenced. But then the guidance around how to actually provide expert opinions to the public seems to be a little bit limiting, at least from the two APAs. Curt Widhalm 34:56 Yes. Katie Vernoy 34:56 What are the master's level folks saying? Curt Widhalm 34:59 That is an excellent question and I'm glad that you're bringing it up. Looking at the four codes of the masters level organizations. This was summarized pretty well in September of 2016 on psychotherapynotes.com by Dr. Ben Caldwell. And I'll expand on some of this because some of these things have been updated even since this blog post. But starting with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy standard 3.11 simply requires that therapists exercise special care when making public their professional recommendations and opinions. There's no prohibition against diagnosing public figures according to AAMFT. Okay, the American Counseling Association as far as within their ethical code Standard C6C, says that counselors speaking with the media base their statements on appropriate counseling literature and practice to ensure that their statements are otherwise consistent with the ACA code of ethics, and to be clear about the nature of their relationship with those receiving the information. National Association of Social Workers - well, they talk about dishonesty and multiple standards. They also require social workers to protect client confidentiality when dealing with the media that standard 1.7K But they don't have any parallels to the Goldwater rule. Katie Vernoy 36:38 Social workers really have no guidance at all, not very much anyway. Curt Widhalm 36:43 CAMFT - This has been updated since Dr. Caldwell's blog here, but the CAMFT code of ethics 5.13 Public Statements, marriage and family therapist because of their ability to influence and alter the lives of others exercise caution when making public their professional recommendations, or their professional opinions, through testimony, social media and internet content, or other public statements. CAMFT also goes on to say 5.14 Limits of Professional Opinions, marriage and family therapists do not express professional opinions about an individual's psychological condition, unless they have treated or conducted an examination and assessment of the individual. Or unless they reveal the limits of the information upon which their professional opinions are based, with appropriate cautions as to the effects of such limited information upon their opinions. Now, how do you take this from the 4 master's level organizations? Katie Vernoy 37:45 I mean, it's a little confusing to me. I think there's certainly caution that we need to take and not do this lightly, not pop off on our podcast, make sure that we're not just giving diagnosis willy nilly that we actually are cautious. Use our training, understand our training. And then also I hear- I think primarily from CAMFT but maybe from somebody other ones - that we need to make sure we put forward the limits that of information that we have, so I've not assessed this person or this is something I've not seen, but my statement is being based on this body of knowledge and this this information that I've been given. So it's a little more guidance, but it still is something where, you know, the rules... Ot just I mean, some of it feels like best judgment, which is a little bit more aligned to the the Goldwater principle. But it's it's still hard to know what's going to be in the best interest of society, of the our professions, of the individuals that are in the spot, the public, public eye that potentially are getting some of this stuff going on. Like it just feels really complex to make a decision around diagnosis or public statements. Curt Widhalm 39:07 So in April of 2018, the American Counseling Association published an ethics update by Perry C Francis. Credited in counseling today, Perry Francis is a professor of counseling at Eastern Michigan University, and coordinator of the counseling and training clinic and the College of Education clinical suite, member of the American College Counseling Association, and he chaired the ethics revision task force that developed the 2014 ACA code of ethics. And summarizing many parts of the article, he also points to E5 of the ACA code of ethics which says, counselors take special care to provide proper diagnosis mental disorders, and dives into the discussion of what exactly is special care. And, in the description talks about that there's a list of behaviors and characteristics that make up not the entirety of a whole person. The DSM has been accused of being ethnocentric. And it's difficult to apply this to other cultures and contexts. Meanwhile, stakeholders like pharmaceutical companies welcome a growing list of diagnosable disorders and overall cautions that professionals who make real world statements might fail to take into account just the ramifications of what these statements might be saying, not only just to the public, but also to other businesses that work in mental health care. Therefore, as counselors according to Perry Francis, we need to take special care to ensure that any diagnosis is made using the most appropriate assessment techniques, including a well planned clinical interview and the most relevant instruments and tests. Part of taking that special care is taking into account the impact of culture on a client's life, including the fact that a client can live in multiple cultures. Perry Francis concludes this article by saying that the American Counseling Association has released a statement concerning publicly diagnosing the mental state of an individual. And it states in part, when publicly discussing public figures and others, professional counselors should avoid DSM and ICD related terms, especially the words diagnosis and disorder. Counselors should not attach a specific DSM or ICD diagnosis to any individual through messaging or statements in media outlets, or social media. Avoiding public statements that label an individual with a mental disorder is in the best interests of the public. This approach aligns with one of the counseling professions core professional values, as stated in the preamble of the ACA code of ethics, practicing in a competent and ethical manner. Katie Vernoy 42:14 So that seems pretty clear to diagnosis. Curt Widhalm 42:17 Yes, Katie Vernoy 42:17 Right I mean, it's not about behavior. It's not saying this behavior as harmful like that's I mean, APA, both of the APAs seem to say like, Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, like anything you say about a person, a public figure is too much, whereas the at least ACA is now saying, as long as it's not a diagnosis, you're good. Curt Widhalm 42:38 That seems that seems to be where the stance is here. Katie Vernoy 42:42 Okay. So that's what the professional associations are saying. I mean, I don't... like I feel like we still need to talk about how someone would make these decisions. Curt Widhalm 42:55 Well, let's take this out of the research and the publications here so far. Let's talk about, you know, what our observations of the landscape of our field is. You and I both know, hundreds, if not 1000s, of therapists at this point, many of whom were connected to on social media. We have lots of friends who are professionals who talk on podcasts and are connected in the media, some who are on TV shows, providing therapy. Katie Vernoy 43:29 Yes, Curt Widhalm 43:30 We see lots of people in these spaces talking about lots of things. Katie Vernoy 43:34 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 43:34 What do you see? Katie Vernoy 43:37 I mean, I see folks who are very open and talking about their own concerns. And so they're able to put forward their own mental health journey as an example. I see people talking about treatment between, you know, kind of how people treat each other and, and those types of things. I mean, I think the the treating someone on a TV show that feels like that's a, a demonstration of therapy with, hopefully, appropriate consents. And I don't I mean, besides our foray into having Bandy on the podcast, I've not seen someone, at least directly diagnose someone in public, I've seen people express concern about public figures or about the impact of public figures, but it feels a little bit more behavioral. And so kind of along the, this the second line, which is, you know, these behaviors are of concern, and this is why. But I don't know that I've seen a lot of the folks we know, kind of saying, like this person is a malignant narcissist. Like I don't necessarily see that - although now that I just said it out loud. I think I probably have seen that as well. How about you? What are you seeing? Curt Widhalm 44:48 Oh, I know a lot of our listeners are, you know, maybe have the same political ideologies as you and I. Maybe they're not. Maybe they make assumptions that they are. But what I do see is that especially as there becomes more advocacy within communities around a diagnosis - people coming from, for example, ADHD community, doing more to educate people about the things that go along with having ADHD that maybe extra, outside of the things listed within the DSM. Might see this same thing with any number of other diagnostic communities that come together. And what I see is also the inverse of some of these statements. And I particularly remember a time and seeing some discussions around Elon Musk making the claim that he was the first person with Asperger's to host Saturday Night Live. This is Katie Vernoy 45:59 Yes, Curt Widhalm 46:00 It's been some time in the past. Katie Vernoy 46:01 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 46:02 And many people have some opinions about this statement. And a lot of the commentary that I saw was professionals who also self identified - and I don't know, their diagnostic criteria - of being part of the Autistic community ended up feeling that either or making statements on their own social media that, hey, Elon Musk isn't one of us. Doesn't belong on the spectrum. Now, these are professionals, I don't, you know, remember, and I don't I'm not pulling them up here. But I think it's just as important to caution saying the absence of a diagnosis without evaluating somebody is potentially just as damaging or dangerous as it is that saying somebody is at a certain diagnosis. Katie Vernoy 46:56 Now that you say that, I think there's also been an impulse, maybe impulse is the wrong word, but there's been some of the you're not, you know, you aren't representative of us, like you talked about whether it's Elon Musk, or an original poster. And then there's also in comments, well, you definitely have this diagnosis, you definitely seem depressed, or you definitely seem X. Like people offering more diagnostic, you know, beyond the like, you should talk to your therapist about this, more of a diagnostic, what you're describing in this 50, you know, 50 word post suggest to me that you must be X diagnosis. And so to me, I think we are a little fast and loose in the more casual public spaces, like social media groups, and those types of things. But I think there is an element of the inverse diagnosis that's interesting. Because I hadn't thought about it that way. Like certainly saying, hey, this person has this diagnosis, that seems pretty clear. But saying this person with a self who self identified doesn't have a diagnosis, how is that harmful but how do you say, what did you think? Why do you think that's harmful? Curt Widhalm 48:12 We haven't presented somebody with a proper assessment ourselves to publicly comment on what their diagnosis is. If - We may not know their medical or psychological history it may be and not framing it, within the context of where you're basing that opinion is where these ethics codes are saying that that is unethical behavior. That you may only be making a snap judgment based on, you know, a few clips of a sketch comedy show. You may be incredibly biased based on the types of news outlets that you receive your information from. And particularly, you know, somebody like Elon Musk that doesn't have quite the number of televised appearances that somebody like Donald Trump might, that the limited amount of available information that you have ends up becoming where if they truly do have this diagnosis, you as a professional are making a statement that invalidates their experience. And one of the main principles of all of our codes of ethics is a stance of nonmaleficence not creating harm. Katie Vernoy 49:33 Yeah. It's interesting because I think it's it's harder, I think, for some of our audience to be like, well, poor Donald Trump, poor Elon Musk, poor billionaires. Right. And I think, in truth, we actually need to pay attention to that because to me, they're, you know, although some people might disagree with me, they're humans too. And they, they could be harmed by the statements that are made. For most of us, I think maybe I'm putting myself too much in that. I think it's easier to, to look at this as a problem, when it's someone who is more traditionally oppressed. You know, if someone who legitimately, whether they claim it or not, has a mental health diagnosis, it doesn't prove them unfit for, for being in a public position, whether it's, you know, a government official or whatever. Like, if we, if we start making the case that they are problematic. Not only are we potentially breaking the Goldwater rule, but we're also potentially increasing stigma, as as the APA said, but we're also potentially harming the ability to have a more diverse representative pool in our legislation. We may be oppressing folks, because we've made this our job to try to protect society from folks who are mentally ill. And that feels really bad. I think the arguments against doing this in a more directed way to public figures. That's where it sits with me as appropriate. Like I, I was celebrating the The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump and I and I don't know that I would say like, Hey, that was a bad idea. But I think the precedent concerns me if we then use these types of stratagems to try to get folks either not elected or out of office. Curt Widhalm 51:37 And bringing this back to earlier in the episode, the dangerous case of Donald Trump's pretty significant portion of that book is the arguments of the needing to step outside of the code of ethics as far as a duty to warn, that does not necessarily focus on the diagnostic criteria, but more so on behaviors that interpersonally end up feeling dangerous to people who have spent their career studying dangerous behaviors. Katie Vernoy 52:11 Sure, and listening to Bandy speak in our conference, like she was talking about the the problem of violence. And there were specific, very public displays of incitement to violence or violence by Donald Trump that I think was potentially where she based her concern about and her duty to warn. Curt Widhalm 52:32 And it also comes from a decade's long history of that being her particular area of study and specialty. Katie Vernoy 52:40 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 52:41 Which is quite a bit different in a number of ways of picking a celebrity and a random page in the DSM and going through some sort of BuzzFeed type evaluation and throwing your opinion out on the internet. Katie Vernoy 52:59 Which is kind of what the original Goldwater thing was right? It was a magazine reaching out to a whole bunch of psychiatrists who were like, "Yeah, I think he's nuts. Curt Widhalm 53:11 Pretty much Katie Vernoy 53:12 It was, I mean, granted, it was a pool of folks. But it sounds like you described it as all over the place. And it wasn't something where they even necessarily individually, were thinking, oh, this is going to be public record. It was more like, oh, in the aggregate, this is kind of fun. I'm anonymously, putting forward my opinion about a candidate I don't like. Curt Widhalm 53:34 And so this does bring to the overall discussion that making public statements as viewed by any of these professional organizations, does include even your own personal social media. Katie Vernoy 53:48 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 53:49 And there needs to be the caution. And this is really the emphatic point here. There needs to be the caution of how you're framing these statements. One of my Facebook memories said recently, was about the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. And for listeners of the podcast, I think I've described before I was in a pretty serious bike accident about 10 years ago. And one of my social media posts from Inauguration Day was of the presidential limo driving down the streets of Washington, DC, solely in the bike lane. And my response, I mean, they had all the streets closed down his parade, it was not great. But yeah, my statement was, as a survivor of a pretty traumatic bike accidents, this administration is not off to a good start. Now, you obviously get the humor of this, you know, maybe even you know if you were to read too much into my statements - oh is is that trauma speaking is that, you know, that, and I'm talking about my own, you know, experiences and potential mental health here, but you got the humor out of it knowing me? Katie Vernoy 55:13 Sure. Yes, I do. Curt Widhalm 55:15 But it was not about Donald Trump, it was about the administration. Katie Vernoy 55:19 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 55:20 And there is a crafting that we need to consider in making any of these kinds of statements, we're all going to have opinions about many different people. And that is fine. Your responsibility as a professional is to know that every statement that you make, that goes outside of the very privacy of your own home, which does include things that you put on the internet, can be taken as fact, as a professional who's speaking. And that opens you up to ethical and legal liabilities. Katie Vernoy 55:57 I think that's really strong. And I think I'd like to get even a little bit more specific on some ideas around this, because to me, there's an element of public figures that we've not talked about yet that I think is important to consider. I know - and I'm sure you've had this happen too - that I will meet someone for the first time. And they say, I feel like I know you, I listened to the podcast. And we are small potatoes compared to a President of the United States. I think there's an element to us feeling like we know public figures based on how they present to the public, and the things that they do. And I think the more time you spend in public, the more of your real self shows up, I think we discount that some people play a role, arguably people will have, the more time they spend in public, the more likely they are to show their real self. But there is a version of this where Trump's acting all the time, and it is playing a role in order to get what he wants. And does that suggest, narcissism maybe. But if it's all pretend, can we really diagnose him? You know, and I think with the the limitations of the knowledge that we have, I think we have to be very cautious about what we say. We don't know someone based on a small snippet of social media, or even sometimes, our long videos of their behavior. I think we do need to be cautious of saying, Well, we have enough information, we can make this diagnosis. We have a whole episode or several episodes on people making assumptions on the internet. So we can link to some of those in the show notes as well. And so to me, I think it comes back to what information do I actually have. Making sure I discussed the limits of the information. And then I think the third thing that is really important is what is my intent. And this is, you know - for all the DBT Folks, this is getting into wise mind - and I think for those of us who are advocates, it's determining is this strategic? Is this about trying to win an election? Like it was with the Goldwater stuff? Is it about a duty to warn, because society is going down rapidly and we need to call this out and, and name it, or anything else? Like what is the actual intention? Am I angry? Am I scared? How is that impacting my judgment? I think it's something where if we just speak from a place of seat-of-my-pants, this is what I'm seeing and it's scary. And it's awful, because this person is politically different from me, I think we get very, very in a very, very dangerous territory as a society. Curt Widhalm 58:52 To conclude all of this - I think you're summarizing it very, very well - is that for many of our professional organizations that we may belong to, at the masters level, there is not a ethical code that necessarily forbids this. Katie Vernoy 59:11 Yeah Curt Widhalm 59:12 You need to really be cautious about framing the information upon how you're basing your opinions. And in general, I would stop well short of, you know, leaving the trail of breadcrumbs up to a diagnosis, if you do have personal and professional concerns about somebody who may be out there and expressing this, whether you put it on your social media, or what you think is your personal social media. Most professional organizations are still going to look at that as a professional statement. That you very carefully framed the context of where you're discussing these things from. Katie Vernoy 59:54 Yeah Curt Widhalm 59:54 And I think that in several of these articles that we've been citing here - and we willl put the references in our show notes at mtsgpodcast.com - that what has changed since 2016, when this debate really started and why we feel that it's still a relevant discussion today, is that some of these professional organizations have clamped down even harder in the last few years. Katie Vernoy 1:00:24 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 1:00:24 And some of the information that's available out there or pops up to the top of your search engines is not necessarily the most up-to-date information. It's important to understand the historical context that where professional organizations are today is not where they started back when the Goldwater principle was first suggested. Some of these articles now we're calling it the Goldwater doctrine, without necessarily putting it into any sort of ethical rigor to move things from a guiding principle to a absolute gag rule. So our recommendation is, for most of you it's not forbidden to make public commentary. But really, really make sure that you frame any sort of statements or exaspirations or social media posts in ways that really frame how you are coming to your conclusion and what your relationship (or lack there of) is to the person that you're talking about. We would love to hear your thoughts on this.

If you've ever wondered if you're making the most of your workouts, this podcast is for you. That's because I'm chatting with Chris Barakat all about training quality versus quantity. There's been a lot of discussion in the fitness space over the past few years about the relationship between volume and muscle growth. The more volume you do, the better your results, many people claim. Is that completely true, though? Are all sets and reps created equal? Or are there ways to maximize your results without adding more sets to your workout? Those are questions Chris Barakat is answering in this podcast. We discuss . . . The concept of volume quality and why more isn't always better Rep effectiveness versus “junk” volume Specific signs your reps are high-quality How to “feel” your chest during the bench press And more . . . If you're not familiar with Chris, he's a published scientist, educator, coach, and natural bodybuilder, and he's a repeat guest on the podcast for good reason. His years of developing his book smarts along with his practical knowledge of gym know-how means he knows how to get results while also having something interesting to say, and I always learn something new in our chats. So, if you want to learn what the latest research says about training volume and how you can evaluate and tweak your own training quality to get better results, listen to this podcast!

So many Stressed Out Successes outsource their FEELINGS based on their job, their projects, or what happens in their life to dictate how they get to feel. But if this really worked, then how is it that no matter how hard YOU tried to make someone else happy… it actually doesn't? This is because just as YOU can't MAKE someone feel a certain emotion when you want to, no one else can truly MAKE you feel a certain emotion either. The problem is, many Stressed Out Successes operate in this paradigm where they believe their emotions are coming from something or someone OUTSIDE of themselves. What if instead you can create how you want to feel instead? How would that change your life? What would you do differently if you can FEEL differently? The possibilities are endless. Listen now.

When we first dream of becoming parents, we naturally think ahead to what we want for our kids in terms of their education, interests, sports, languages, and even what musical instrument they will play. And when we have that child, some of these become solidified in our minds and expectations. It's natural to want the best for our children and to provide them with lots of opportunities. There are times though, where we get caught up in their activities, performance and interests and we put too much pressure on them to perform to a certain standard and it can do more harm than good. I'm happy to welcome the distinguished Psychologist, educator and author, Dr. Christopher Thurber who co-wrote the book, “The Unlikely Art of Parental Pressure”, to discuss pressure and praise and how we can avoid hurting our kids and encourage them instead. In this episode, we talk about: Good and bad kinds of pressure How to praise for effort versus outcome How to front-load empathy The six Ss of praise - Soon, Spontaneous, Sincere, Specific, Striving, and Stand alone Unconditional Love For a copy of the author's exclusive insights from their book, “The Unlikely Art of Parental Pressure”, you can download it from the Parent Toolbox. www.parent-toolbox.com About Christopher Thurber Chris Thurber, PhD, co-author of THE UNLIKELY ART OF PARENTAL PRESSURE, is a board-certified clinical psychologist, educator, author, and father with a BA from Harvard and a PhD in child and adolescent psychology from UCLA.

So many forces in our brains, bodies, and culture move us toward the experience of scarcity – that something is missing, that we don't have enough, and that we never will have enough. The feeling of scarcity both feels bad in itself, and is also the creator and amplifier of so many other challenges we face. On this episode of Being Well, Dr. Rick and Forrest Hanson talk about what a scarcity and an abundance mindset is, what some sources of scarcity are, and how we can move to an authentic experience of abundance.Watch the Episode: Prefer watching video?
