    MyNDTALK - The Art of Flourishing - Dr. Jeffrey Rubin

    Dr. Jeffrey Rubin brings the art of flourishing to life. His idea is startlingly simple: self-care is the foundation of intimacy, and intimacy is the culmination of self-care. Synthesizing the best practices from the traditions of Eastern meditation and Western psychotherapy, Rubin creates a new and accessible path to living authentically as a singular self and as part of a couple. Drawing from case studies and personal experiences, Rubin discusses how to discover our purpose, nurture empathy and mutual respect, and uncover barriers to intimacy--the hidden emotional weeds that kill passion.

    MyNDTALK - Grief and Recovery - Candyce Ossefort Russell

    Loss is brutal. Grief is agonizing.
    And when you're grieving, everyone has an opinion about how you're supposed to make your way through the experience of loss. Even you might have ideas about how your grief process ought to go. Almost everyone thinks there's a correct way to grieve. But that's simply not true. What is true is that our society is death-phobic, and our collective fear of facing death and loss perpetuates some hurtful falsehoods about grief, like "grief takes a certain amount of time," or you need to do specific "grief work" to be okay." Candyce shares her personal journey and professional experiences during this conversation on MyNDTALK.

    MyNDTALK - 911 Loss - Survival - Lisa Luckett

    This story starts in wreckage in the of events of September 11, 2001. As the dust began to settle, my children and I received a vast outpouring of love and kindness from friends and strangers both near and far that kept us going in those early days. But that was only the beginning. Life went on -- and we did too. With the clarity that only comes with time, I realized that the resiliency and beauty of the human spirit that emerged from 9-11 were only the tips of the iceberg of what we could be. I vowed that I would not let my husband, Ted, and all the others die in vain by making something good come from this nightmare. This is the story of how I healed myself as the first step in my plan to heal the world.

    MyNDTALK - The Trauma Heart - Judy Crane

    The majority of people addicted to substances or process addictions such as relationship disorders, eating disorders, self-harming behaviors, gambling or pornography are trauma survivors. Many people caught in the web of addiction don't identify as trauma survivors until their personal, familial, intergenerational, and in-uterine history is exposed. Unfortunately, relapse is inevitable without trauma resolution that can only take place once their history is exposed. It is only when that happens that the behavior disorders will finally make sense." This is a conversation for those who have experience addiction and/or trauma!

    Within every community, toxic people can be found hiding in families, couples, companies, and places of worship. The cryptic nature of psychological abuse involves includes mind games played by one individual or a group of people. Psychological abuse leaves no bruises. There are no broken bones. There are no holes in the walls. The bruises, brokenness, and holes are held tightly within the target of the abuse." One of the painful components of psychological abuse is the harmed person's difficulty with finding support both from within and without. Without physical scars to 'prove' the abuse - the abused person often has trouble identifying the abuse and/or getting the support so needed and deserved. This conversation will serve to broaden your understanding of the existence of different kinds of abuse in its many forms.

    MyNDTALK - Are Your Grandparents High? - Dr Harry Haroutunian

    A leading clinical expert on substance misuse and abuse, Dr. Harry Haroutunian of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, provides caregivers and loved ones with vital information needed to understand and address addiction issues in older adults. Drug and alcohol problems are booming in older adults. Dramatic lifestyle changes, along with growing health problems, have led many to turn to alcohol, prescription painkillers, and marijuana to medicate their physical and psychological pain. You may think, Dad is just enjoying cocktails and retirement, or Mom still has pain and needs her pills. Maybe so, but consider that an estimated 17 percent of people age sixty and older struggle with misuse of alcohol and prescription drugs alone. Older adults are now hospitalized as often for alcohol-related problems as they are for heart attacks.
