What causes burnout among residents?
There are many factors associated with burnout supported in the literature. We can break them down into environmental factors, personal factors, and non-modifiable factors. In this episode, we dive into the major factors of resident burnout and how the connection index can improve resident morale.
197: Sick Enough: Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani On Eating Disorders
In today's episode of the podcast, we talk with Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani (Dr. G), internationally renowned author of the book, Sick Enough: A Guide to the Medical Complications of Eating Disorders, and founder of the Gaudiani Clinic in Denver, Colorado. We deconstruct common myths and misconceptions about eating disorders, exercise, metabolic processes and why the term “sick enough” is such an apt title for a text and discussion on this group of complex and life-threatening mental health conditions.
Dr. Christopher Browning- "Ordinary Men" of the Holocaust
In this interview with historian Dr. Christopher Browning, we discuss his book, Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland. An internationally renowned author and researcher, Dr. Browning is also a professor emeritus of history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). He is an internationally recognized expert on the Holocaust and Nazi Germany and has authored over 75 publications.
His focus on Battalion 101 emerged during his research of the Holocaust, when he discovered that this battalion was unlike any other in the German army or police force—it was comprised of ordinary, middle-aged men, not trained soldiers. Despite this fact, they assimilated into the Nazi practices of mass murder with disturbing ease. Dr. Browning examines the psychological and cultural influences that impacted this seeming phenomenon and offers poignant insights from existing historical documents.
We want to thank Jeremiah Stokes, Ed.D., LMHC for being part of this episode and helping with write up available on psychiatrypodcast.com
195: Dr. Robert Sapolsky: Baboons, Stress Research, Connection and Determinism
In today’s episode of the podcast, we are joined by neuroscientist and primatologist, Dr. Robert Sapolsky, to discuss his work with baboons, stress, and his own mental health journey. Dr. Sapolsky is professor of biology, neurology, and neuroscience at Stanford University, as well as an author of several books including, A Primate's Memoir: A Neuroscientist’s Unconventional Life Among the Baboons, Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers, and Determined. He has spent extensive time studying baboons in Kenya over the course of his career, a passion he attributes to his extensive time spent in the American Natural History Museum in New York.

194: Dr. Sue Johnson: Attunement, Attachment and the Development of Emotionally Focused Therapy
In today’s episode of the podcast, I interview Dr. Sue Johnson, founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy, an intervention for relationships aimed at resolving distress by helping clients become attuned within a secure attachment bond. She has also written countless books and articles, a personal favorite being Hold Me Tight. She was the first person to teach me about the still face experiment in 2013. I, myself, have had the personal benefit of being in EFT with my wife for the past year. I remember watching a video of Sue doing therapy, and I thought, there is some sort of symphony happening here, and I really want to learn how to play the notes. I wanted this session to pull out as many practical pearls as possible from Dr. Johnson, more of the “how” of the process of helping people reconnect.
Episode 193: Buprenorphine and Opioid Use Disorder Management with Dr. Neal Christopher
We are joined again by Dr. Neal Christopher, who is currently the Vice Chair and Associate Medical Director of Arrowhead Regional Medical Center and the Psychiatry and Addiction Consultant for the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health. Dr. Christopher has previously appeared on the Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Podcast in episode 063, “Interviewing Well For Psychiatry Residency & Beyond,” and episode 103, “Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with Dr. Steven Hayes.”
In this week’s episode, Dr. Puder and Dr. Christopher discuss the recent elimination of the X-Waiver and what it means for providers, the mechanism and efficacy of buprenorphine, and practical tips for prescribing buprenorphine and supporting patients on their road to recovery from opioid use disorder.
This episode continues our podcast series on addiction, designed to meet the one-time, 8-hour training requirement introduced by the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023. This mandate applies to all providers registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and our series primarily focuses on the treatment and management of patients with substance use disorders.
One of the best
Awesome show! Absolutely love it.
This podcast is the best for anyone in the mental health world! Dr. Puder is a wonderful host with amazing clinical knowledge and always has on amazing guests. I particularly love the emphasis on lifestyle interventions and the therapeutic relationship but his pharmacology episodes are helpful and practical as well. I love that there are no ads on this podcast as well which adds to the credibility. The older episodes on personality traits have given me practical, non-pathological ways to talk with my patients about some of their struggles. Give the podcast a listen!
Fantastic! Love these and the CME
This really is the podcast your psychiatrist listens to. I always learn something to bring to my practice and for that I am very grateful.
