    He added the R.E.A.Ch. -V.I.P. program (Recovery of Emotionally Abused Children with Volunteers in Psychotherapy), modeled by the late Dr. Kevin McCready (R.E.A.Ch.) and Richard Schulman, Ph.D. (V.I.P), whereby those without any financial support could obtain free clinical services for volunteering their time in the nonprofit local community.

    Dr. Watson has provided testimony to the Food and Drug Administration regarding lack of effectiveness and safety of ECT, and upon SSRI induced suicide. He was an invited guest speaker and lecturer to the Congress of Mexico (speaking upon the link between psychiatric medications and violence in children and teens).
    Dr. Watson specializes in integrating evidence based practices, and uses an integrated psycho-social-biological integrated model when lecturing, testifying and treating patients.

Fred Shaw Episode

Wow!!!!! What an interview!! I feel like I got a new understanding of what is happening in our country!!! Great interview!! I really enjoy your show!!

Ambivalent - but not too ambivalent

Assigning stars is very frustrating at times. I found some of the discussion worthy of 5 stars and some of it not worthy of one.
Just finished listening to Batya Ungar-Sargon, "Woke Media or Class Warfare." Ungar-Sargon did help me sort through tension in national news coverage. I have felt for quite awhile that something was amiss with national news coverage and how it doesn't reflect news and values outside of NY City or the West Coast. Also, her framing of how the Green New Deal and other perhaps well-meaning policies are not socially just or fair helped me understand a little more about how "wokism" really plays a part in the efforts of the Left. In her parting remarks she complains about "both sides" politicizing the Uvalde massacre. Really? I applaud Beto O'Rourke for confronting Gov. Abbott at the press conference in which Abbott and the Texas power players (Dan Patick, Ted Cruz, John Cornyn, Ken Paxton, state and local law enforcement - oh, and the NRA). stood before the parents and community members of slain children and proclaimed, "It could've been worse." You can claim that "both sides" made it political but we have YET to get the plain and unadulterated facts out about what happened. (You might recall that the story changed repeatedly over the first several days following the shooting. We won't know for sure what happened until AFTER the Nov. elections!) I really did not appreciate one bit that comment that equated the Abbott-GOP-NRA narrative (or cover up) and whatever the truth might be. "Both sides" just don't do some things equally.
One of the issues about your podcast that bothers me a lot is that one of your sponsors (at least of this episode) is MyPillow.com. I know you have to have sponsors. However, I will not be subscribing to your podcast until you lose this one. In my opinion, Mike Lindell has done terrible harm to this country and he should probably be in jail. He continues to do harm. He associates himself with the far-right conspiracy voices who have repeatedly called for Trump to be reinstated. His alliance with QAnon is well known. You claim to be on the "right side" of things. I understand that this might be rhetorical to some degree and that you personally can be described as center-right. However, by accepting MyPillow.com sponsorship IS to associate you and your podcast with one of the worst far-right conspiracy theorists who continue to call for the overthrow of our government.
As I write this I notice that Walmart (not exactly the astian of American values) has pulled MyPillow from its shelves. That probably won't get me going to Walmart anytime soon, but it does show that Walmart is starting to respond to reality.
I've listened to 3 of your podcasts and I've liked all three. So, keep up the good work and please shed yourself of awful sponsors.
