Solid information.

IdirisHagi ,

Thank you!

This podcast is great. What a timely podcast about mental health. Thank you Dr Berney and Dr Marshall for all of your work in creating this podcast. And also thank you for the pervious Paedeia education podcast.

PS: I use the Overcast podcast app to listen the show.

DID episode

The episode you did on Dissociative Identity Disorder was spewed with misinformation and hurtful assumptions that are not based in evidence. Multiple times you made it out to sound like DID is almost always faked and that one should be suspicious of anyone with DID. I’ll assume based on the fact you are licensed mental health professionals you know how dangerous that can be to individuals suffering from this debilitating disorder. I hope you seriously consider whether it is helpful to keep this episode up for others to be harmed by your uneducated rhetoric. I see no benefit in perpetuating these out dated myths.
