    Rev. Maureen Shelton: Part 2 - Spirituality, Health, and Compassion

    Rev. Maureen Shelton: Part 2 - Spirituality, Health, and Compassion

    Spirituality, Health and Compassion: a Conversation with the Reverend Maureen Shelton, Part 2

    More than other healthcare professions, chaplaincy is undergoing profound change, and nowhere is this change more apparent than in the Emory Department of Spiritual Health, where chaplaincy is being transformed from an ancillary hospital offering to an integral component of the healthcare system. In this second part of a two-part series Maureen Shelton, M.Div, joins host Charles L. Raison, MD, to continue their conversation on the role that rigorous training in compassion has played for development of spiritual health as a scientific discipline. In particular, Reverend Shelton brings us into the world of Compassion-Centered Spiritual Health (CCSH™), a novel program designed at Emory with the goal of optimizing the ability of spiritual health clinicians to care for their patients while also building the resilience within themselves needed to thrive in the emotionally taxing environments in which chaplaincy so often occurs. Reverend Shelton shares the core concepts of CCSH, bringing these to life in a series of beautiful vignettes of patient-chaplain meetings, or in the parlance of spiritual health—at the place of vulnerability where care seeker and care provider can meet in ways that impact emotional and physical health. Maureen Shelton is the System Director of Education and Director of the Division of CCSH in the Department of Spiritual Health at the Woodruff Health Sciences Center.
    This episode is Part 2 in a two-part series.

    Rev. Maureen Shelton: Part 1 - Spirituality, Health, and Compassion

    Rev. Maureen Shelton: Part 1 - Spirituality, Health, and Compassion

    Spirituality, Health and Compassion: a Conversation with the Reverend Maureen Shelton, Part 1

    “Spirituality is a seeking and discovery of one’s sacred values; values that are influenced by connectedness to self, others and earth; the aspiration to realize ideals; and the journey of asking the profound questions of life.”

    Thought of in this way, it is not hard to grasp why spirituality has become increasingly recognized as an essential, but often missing, component of optimal healthcare. No one is better trained and positioned to meet the need of better integrating spirituality into the American medical system than hospital chaplains, who play an increasingly outsized role in supporting the emotional and physical health, not just of patients, but of medical staff as well. Join us on this podcast as Maureen Shelton, M.Div engages us in a wide-ranging discussion about chaplaincy in general, and more specifically about remarkable developments in the Emory Department of Spiritual Health, for which she serves as System Director of Education and Director of the Division of Compassion-Centered Spiritual Health (CCSH). In particular, we discuss how the addition of compassion training to chaplaincy education has begun to transform the ability of spiritual health clinicians to meet the spiritual, emotional, and social needs of patients and personnel within the Emory Healthcare system. In this first of a two-part series, Reverend Shelton walks us through the steps of Cognitively-Based Compassion Training (CBCT®), which forms the first step of training in the clinical practice of CCSH, a research-supported approach to spiritual health that is our focus in the second podcast of this series.
    This episode is Part 1 in a two-part series.

    Dr. Andrew Miller: Part 2 - Inflammation and Depression

    Dr. Andrew Miller: Part 2 - Inflammation and Depression

    Inflammation and Depression: From Evolutionary Understandings to the Discovery of New Treatments

    In our first podcast with Dr. Andrew H. Miller, we explored links between inflammation and mental illness. But we left unanswered several key questions. Why as a species we should be so prone to inflammatory disorders? Why, from an evolutionary point of view, should inflammation so readily cause depression? In this podcast we cover these questions and more, exploring why humans have an inflammatory bias, why the link between inflammation and depression likely enhanced survival and reproduction across human evolution and why the absence of co-evolved bacteria, viruses and worms in the modern world is making both inflammation and depression worse. Finally, we turn to cutting-edge research underway in Dr. Miller’s laboratory that seeks to harness the link between inflammation and depression to create better, and more personalized, treatments for mental illness. Andrew H. Miller, MD, is the William P. Timmie Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University. His discoveries have played a leading role in our current understanding of immune-brain interactions relevant to mental health.

    This episode is Part 2 in a two-part series.

    Dr. Andrew Miller: Part 1 - Inflammation, Stress and Depression

    Dr. Andrew Miller: Part 1 - Inflammation, Stress and Depression

    Everything You’ve Always Wanted to Know About Inflammation, Stress and Depression

    The realization that inflammation contributes to most modern illnesses has been called one of the most important medical discoveries of the last century. Inflammation contributes to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and dementia. We now know that inflammation also plays a central role, not just in physical illness, but also in psychiatric disorders. Increased inflammation has been repeatedly observed in individuals with depression, manic-depression, schizophrenia and most other mental disorders. If you’ve ever wondered what this all means, in this podcast Dr. Andrew H. Miller joins host Charles Raison to talk about what inflammation is and how its association with mental illness was discovered. Dr. Miller, who is the William P. Timmie Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University, has been a world leader in unraveling how inflammation produces depression and how addressing inflammation might help identify new treatments for this disabling condition. Join us on this podcast to hear the history of this psychiatric and medical revolution from someone who made much of it happen.

    This episode is Part 1 in a two-part series.

    Dr. Carla Haack: A Surgeon’s Journey to the Heart of Health

    A Surgeon’s Journey to the Heart of Health: Yoga as a Means of Physical, Mental and Spiritual Health

    Medicine in general, and surgery in particular, can seem so mechanical and cold. In a world in which bodies are seen as biological machines and medical appointments consist of sitting quietly while the doctor sits with her back to you typing into a computer, the voice of Dr. Carla Haack is both refreshing and inspiring. Dr. Haack has been a towering presence in the Emory University School of Medicine. Among her many titles are Assistant Professor of General and GI surgery, Medical Director for Care Coordination for Emory University Hospital and Emory University Orthopedic and Spine Hospital and Henry B. Tippie Clinician Scholar, all of which fail to do justice to the outsized impact she has had on the University’s medical community. In this podcast, we join Dr. Haack to discuss the beauty of surgery when set within the larger psychospiritual context informed by Dr. Haack’s long-term commitment to yoga as a means of physical health and emotional well-being. Join us as we explore the many surprising ways in which yoga and surgery can inform each other to provide an inspiring vision of medicine characterized by a commitment to healing the body, mind, and spirit.
