095: The Big Five: Neuroticism Part 2
In part 2 of the Big Five series, we talk about how medications, such as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), psychotherapy, and exercise can make an impact. Trial studies of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) have shown promise in the treatment of neuroticism. We also discuss the possible benefits of neuroticism. Studies have shown that neurotic people may outperform their stable counterparts in a work context.
094: Cuties and the Oversexualization of Children in Our Culture
Netflix has recently come under fire for its release of the French film "Cuties." While critics have praised the movie for exploring themes of the oversexualization of children, audience members are consistently appalled at the provocative situations that the 11-year-old characters are put through. In this episode, I discuss our culture's saturation with the oversexulization of children in media with Maddie Ulrich B.S., Randy Stinnett, Psy.D., ABPP, and Caroline Osorio M.D.
093: Forensic Pedophilia with Dr. Cummings

Covid increasing Suicidality
The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have seemed to foster a “sub-epidemic” of suicidality and deteriorating mental health. Suicidal thoughts have spiked across every demographic due to the loss of connection to usual psychosocial supports, normal activities, and in a lot of cases, jobs, leading to significant financial stress. These stressors compound and massively impact the mental resiliency of everyone reached by this pandemic.

Excellent for Primary Care Providers as well as Mental Health Care Providers
This is an excellent podcast. I am a family medicine primary care provider. With each episode I learn more about not only the mental health care we provide in the primary care setting. More interesting is that I get ideas that can be applied to the care of general medical conditions. For example a better therapeutic alliance helps with controlling diabetes. This podcast gives concrete, actionable things that an engineer, physical science kind of guy can do for creating more empathy and connection with clients.
Word view of the host gets in the way.
The host has very good information and is very intelligent. However you need to filter through his intellect and his world view when it comes to race and his white guilt. Again very intelligent man he just needs to stick to facts and when he wants to make an observation he should try to steer clear of his biases due to his world view and personality traits.
Please write a script
I want to like this podcast. Interesting topics. Hosts have good podcast voices. But it is so disorganized and so much rambling. It makes it hard to follow and understand. I can tell there is an outline for the show, but you all need to hammer out the details and organize it better.
