    Rising Adult Professionals: Stand- Up, Stand-Out, and Succeed with Julie Lythcott-Haims & Mark Zides

    Rising Adult Professionals: Stand- Up, Stand-Out, and Succeed with Julie Lythcott-Haims & Mark Zides

    Today’s job market is a stark contrast to the job market of 20-
    years ago. Millennials and Gen Z’ers who are entering the
    workforce have different ideas about what makes a successful
    career and a happy work life. Young adults who are empowered
    with the right tools to problem solve for themselves will be major
    assets for the organizations they join. How long they maintain a
    position will be up to the organization to foster their talent and
    the ability of the young adult professional to rise to find different
    opportunities within the same organization. To discover how
    young adults entering the workforce can build a foundation of
    trust and commitment to achieve work/life success, Positive
    Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two
    authors about how young adult professionals can stand-up, stand-
    out, and succeed. Julie Lythcott-Haims is a New York Times
    bestselling author and former Stanford Dean of Freshman. She
    explores the role parents can play in raising empowered young
    adults and other reflections from her book, Your Turn: How to Be
    an Adult. Mark Zides is the CEO of CoreAxis Consulting and a
    serial entrepreneur. He discusses the core concepts he provides to
    young adults in his book, The #PACE Process for Early Career
    Success.

    From Survival to Success: Exploring Resilience & The Immigrant Experience with Justine Gatt Ph.D., Lan Cao & Harlan Lan Cao

    Moving residences, whether elective or forced, is known to be one of the most stressful things humans can do. Dealing with the trauma of new places and new faces can be difficult for both parents and children. Why do some people bounce back after a change and others sink into themselves? What about when a family moves into a different culture? How do individuals maintain a sense of well-being in the face of 180-degree life change? To determine the role genetics and environment have in calculating survival or success, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with three women about the resilience across cultures and the immigrant experience. Justine Gatt is the Lead Scientist at Gatt Wellbeing and Resilience group. She describes the multiple studies she has been a part of that measure wellbeing and resilience in various cultures and with varying stressors. Mother, Lan Cao and Daughter, Harlan Lan Cao, co-authored Family in Six Tones: A Refugee Mother, An American Daughter. Each describes how her experience differed from the other in school, society, and when writing the book.

    Religiously Curious and Spiritually Independent with Rabbi Rami Shapiro Ph.D., Amy-Jill Levine Ph.D. & Marc Zvi Brettler Ph.D.

    Walk into a Christian church that preaches from the Old Testament and then walk into a synagogue that teaches from the Hebrew Bible, the scripture should be similar, right? Well, not exactly. Even though both books are known to depict the same stories, many factors go into how we interpret them. Certain works may be highlighted in one religion or omitted by another. To explore the intricacies of religion and spirituality, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with three authors and religious scholars about the purpose of religion, religious texts, and spirituality. Rabbi Rami Shapiro is a highly decorated, yet unorthodox Rabbi who has studied many religions including Buddhism, Hinduism, and is a Mason in the Scottish Rite. He joins Lisa to discuss the fine points of his book, Judaism Without Tribalism: A Guide to Being a Blessing to All the Peoples of the Earth, and to share spiritual practices that can be used to elevate us all. Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Zvi Brettler discuss, the role of women in the bible, the different versions of the Bible, and the innumerable and diverse interpretations of individual religious texts based on research gained while writing, The Bible With and WIthout Jesus: How Jews and Christians Read the Same Stories Differently.

    Warehouses of Experience: Brain, Body, and Trauma with Dr. Paul Valent MD & Dr. Thomas Verny MD

    Warehouses of Experience: Brain, Body, and Trauma with Dr. Paul Valent MD & Dr. Thomas Verny MD

    Have you ever read a book or heard a story of an unusually cruel
    or violent person and wonder what makes them capable of such
    atrocities? A sound hypothesis would be that the person had a
    very difficult and painful childhood, suffering abuses beyond
    normal coping mechanisms. But, new discoveries suggest that
    stress and trauma can be passed from one generation to
    subsequent generations through RNA and DNA. Making humans
    truly an amalgam of their ancestors. To discover the impact our
    family of origin has on our cellular makeup and disposition,
    Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with
    two doctors who have a unique history about their fascinating
    work and the application of it to the healing and recovery process.
    Dr. Paul Valent specializes in the harm people inflict on one
    another and why they do it. He is the author of Heart of Violence:
    Why People Harm Each Other which he discusses in detail. Dr.
    Thomas Verny is a clinical psychiatrist who has made strides in
    the discovery of cellular memory and how stress affects
    generations. His book, The Embodied Mind: Understanding the
    Mysteries of Cellular Memory, Consciousness, and Our Bodies
    investigates the storage of memories outside the brain, the
    impact of organ transplants, and epigenetics
