    Forensics: Dr Judy Investigates – Netflix’s Crime Scene - Part 1

    Forensics: Dr Judy Investigates – Netflix’s Crime Scene - Part 1

    Dr. Judy is thrilled to launch her exclusive new special edition podcast series “Forensics: Dr. Judy Investigates” where she uses her expertise as a forensic psychologist to uncover the psychology behind some of the most talked-about cases in the nation.  

    On this episode of Supercharged Life, Dr. Judy launches her first 3-episode installment of this special edition series, which focuses on the case explored in the hugely popular Netflix series “Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel.” This amazing docuseries highlights the history and cultural relevance of the Cecil Hotel in the skid row area of Los Angeles, where a young Canadian woman disappeared – and details the fascinating events that unfolded as people tried to make sense of what happened.  

    Dr. Judy uses her expertise as a clinical and forensic neuropsychologist to explore the psychology behind the events, from the intense reactions on the internet and the conspiracy theories that abound, to why people refused to accept what the facts bore out, and how the evidence from Elisa Lam’s Tumblr, the results of the police investigation, and the findings from her autopsy report all point to one clear explanation that was largely ignored by the media frenzy. All of this connects back to the misunderstandings that still abound about mental illness, the impact of self-stigma and community stigma, and how we can empower individuals who are struggling to get the help they need to live meaningful lives. Dr. Judy is so passionate about this story as she discusses the lessons it can teach us all. 

    In next week’s episode, Dr. Judy welcomes the amazing director of the Netflix docu-series Joe Berlinger and in the final episode, Dr. Judy answers all of your burning questions that have been pouring in about this case and offers her Supercharged Tips about how to take care of yourself and your loved ones who are struggling with mental illness.

    A vaccine for your mind? The story of the Zion cult takedown and how we can guard against brainwashing and harmful groupthink

    A vaccine for your mind? The story of the Zion cult takedown and how we can guard against brainwashing and harmful groupthink

    Dr. Judy tackles one of our greatest challenges as a social spieces – the phenomenon of brainwashing and harmful groupthink – with law enforcement expert Mike King and Zion cult survivor Andrea Lithgow. As we continue to battle the pandemic, a lesser known yet pervasive phenomenon – the Infodemic - can take hold of our minds and hearts and wreak havoc on our decision making and peace of mind.
    To guard against this, we must develop a vaccine for our minds – and Dr. Judy explores how by delving deep into the story of the Zion polygamous Cult takedown and how Mike as lead investigator rescued Andrea and many others from a life of captivity, indoctrination, and unspeakable trauma when she was a teenager. Three decades later, Mike gathered the survivors in an unprecedented and heartwarming reunion where they can commune and heal. With the help of government and private donor benefactors, Mike provided important resources to these individuals, and Andrea has learned with therapy and education to recover and rebuild a fulfilling, meaningful, and inspiring life. 
    Dr. Judy introduces the concept of Inoculation Theory and how we can provide ourselves with a vaccine for our minds in order to safeguard against a deluge of harmful information. Along with Mike and Andrea, they share tips on how we can arm ourselves with the skills needed to filter the truth from myth, and to prevent manipulation and harmful groupthink from taking over our lives and the lives of those we love.
