    Episode 74 - "Moana"

    Episode 74 - "Moana"

    Welcome back to Analyze Scripts, where a psychiatrist and a therapist analyze what Hollywood gets right and wrong about mental health. Today, we are analyzing the hit 2016 Disney movie “Moana” starring Auli'i Cravalho and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. We LOVE this movie!! In this episode, we break down why we think Moana is one of the best disney princesses ever and we use her character to discuss the portrayal of a healthy, secure attachment style. We question whether Maui’s action are related to narcissism or early childhood abandonment, and discuss how beautifully the ending explores the ability to accept both good and bad aspects of ourselves. We can’t wait for the sequel! We hope you enjoy!

    Episode 73 - "The Program: Cons, Cults, and Kidnapping"

    Episode 73 - "The Program: Cons, Cults, and Kidnapping"

    Welcome back to Analyze Scripts, where a psychiatrist and a therapist analyze what Hollywood gets right and wrong about mental health. Today, we are discussing and advocating for the children and teens who have been impacted by the Troubled Teen Industry. The three part series on Netflix, “The Program: Cons, Cults, and Kidnapping,” directed by Katherine Kubler, follows former classmates from the Academy at Ivy Ridge which was falsely marketed as a boarding school that supports “troubled” teens. These programs do anything but support their residents with abuse, trauma and deaths occurring regularly. Katherine confronts past staff and provides a paper trail of money leading to nefarious, UNLICENSED and UNEDUCATED people at the top of these organizations. We discuss notable differences between residential/inpatient centers that promote healing and those that abuse. Help us support those who have been impacted by these programs and regulate current programs to promote safety for our most vulnerable populations #breakingcodesilence

    Episode 72 - "Grey's Anatomy" Season 1

    Episode 72 - "Grey's Anatomy" Season 1

    Welcome back to Analyze Scripts, where a psychiatrist and a therapist analyze what Hollywood gets right and wrong about mental health. Today, we revisit Seattle Grace Hospital as we analyze the first season of “Grey’s Anatomy.” Although the show gets some obvious stuff wrong (no intern sees the light of day!!), we were both impressed at how well they captured the emotional intensity of intern year, the first year of work following the completion of medical school. In this episode, Dr. Furey revisits many memories from her own intern year and we also discuss the high rates of mental health issues in resident physicians with a specific focus on surgical residents. We also explore the depiction of power dynamics, workplace romances, and gender stereotypes while feeling all kinds of nostalgia. We hope you enjoy!

    Episode 71 - "Beef" Season 1

    Welcome back to Analyze Scripts, where a psychiatrist and a therapist analyze what Hollywood gets right and wrong about mental health. Today, we are super excited to analyze one of our new favorite shows “Beef” created by Korean-American director Lee Sung Jin for Netflix. This series swept the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards with individual awards going to Ali Wong and Steven Yeun for portraying the main characters Amy and Danny, and the show being chosen for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series. We get the hype! In this episode, we explore road rage and the difference between anger and rage. We also explore why humans feel angry and which areas of the brain get activated and deactivated when we feel this emotion. We also discuss how to appropriately manage these intense feelings using anger management, grounding, mindfulness, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) principles. We hope you learn how to manage your anger better than the characters on this show, and that you enjoy this episode!

    Episode - 70 "Oppenheimer"

    Episode - 70 "Oppenheimer"

    Welcome back to Analyze Scripts, where a psychiatrist and a therapist analyze what Hollywood gets right and wrong about mental health. Today, we are covering the 2024 Oscar Winner for Best Picture, Oppenheimer. This movie had stunning cinematography and world class actors, Christopher Nolan was fantastic at casting (shout out Josh Peck) for the leads and supporting cast. In this episode we discuss the moral and ethical dilemma the scientists faced who built the atomic bomb. We also discuss some historical information we came across outside of the film that speaks to the mental health of the main characters like Oppenheimer, Jean and Katherine. We see pretty significant alcohol use and some interesting relationship dynamics to be discussed. We hope you enjoy!
