Brain Health and Aging in an Unhealthy Society with Peter Whitehouse MD-PhD & Daniel George, PhD MSc [Episode 70]

Brain Health and Aging in an Unhealthy Society with Peter Whitehouse MD-PhD & Daniel George, PhD MSc [Episode 70]

August 21, 2021

Paul Krauss MA LPC speaks with Peter Whitehouse, MD-PhD and Daniel George, PhD MSc about their new book "American Dementia: Brain Health in an Unhealthy Society." This is a conversation you are not going to want to miss. Dr. Whitehouse and Dr. George are two experts coming together to make a well-researched and passionate argument about rethinking brain health and the current healthcare system through an "eco-psychosocial lens." From examining  Alzheimer’s as NOT a single disease (such as Polio) but a complex, heterogenous condition based on multiple studies, to examining the pharmaceutical industry's role in shaping the narrative about the syndrome--Dr. Whitehouse and Dr. George flex their substantial knowledge base in critically examining the American view on Dementia from multiple medical, scientific, and social lenses. Further, Dr. Whitehouse and Dr. George discuss how the misunderstanding of Alzheimer's has mostly locked in efforts to treat it to a single pill, instead of reflecting on the research into the strides made in the healthcare industry with Person Centered Care, Life-Long education, Age-Friendly Communities, and basic preventative measures that communities may implement as ways to prevent and help those suffering from Alzheimer's. The conversation runs from the micro (the disease and what the research has demonstrated) to the macro (the broader implications of our current society and how it functions).

Previously, the two contributed to the book: The Myth of Alzheimer's: What You Aren't Being Told About Today's Most Dreaded Diagnosis.

  • Daniel R. George, PhD, MSc, is a medical anthropologist and an associate professor in the Department of Humanities and the Department of Public Health Sciences at Penn State College of Medicine.
  • Peter J. Whitehouse, MD, PhD, is a professor of neurology at Case Western Reserve University and a professor of medicine at University of Toronto. He is cofounder of Intergenerational Schools, a network of unique public, multi-age community schools in Cleveland, Ohio.

Understanding Human Behavior, Culture, and Everything through an Emergent System Lens: Consilience with Tom Beakbane [Episode 69]

Understanding Human Behavior, Culture, and Everything through an Emergent System Lens: Consilience with Tom Beakbane [Episode 69]

July 19, 2021

This is an episode that is not to be missed. Tom Beakbane and Paul Krauss MA LPC discuss his new book How to Understand Everything: Consilience: A New Way to See the World. Tom and Paul discuss many topics including the hard science of how the body and mind interact, tribalism, culture, human behavior, communication and much more. Tom's journey to resurrect the concept of consilience began when he tried to understand why textbook explanations of human behavior did not account for the techniques routinely used by marketing communications and political operatives. Also he observed that textbook psychology did not explain the interpersonal dynamics he observed while providing services to his company’s clients. He realized that by weaving together developments on the front lines of biology, physics and computing and re-conceptualizing human behavior as an emergent system it was possible to explain the nature of understanding in ways that are all-embracing. 

Tom Beakbane is president of a brand marketing company in Toronto, Canada. With an honors degree in biochemistry and neurophysiology from Durham University in England, he was puzzled by the gap between textbook theories of human behavior and his experiences creating business communications. He closed the gap by tapping into developments at the frontiers of science, explained in the just-published book How to Understand Everything. Consilience: A New Way to See the World.

Why learning about Substance Use is important for Therapists with Betsy Byler, MA LPC [Episode 68]

Why learning about Substance Use is important for Therapists with Betsy Byler, MA LPC [Episode 68]

July 2, 2021

A curious thing about many regular counseling and social work programs--there isn't much time spent about how to treat substance use disorder. Even though in the USA, 2020 was the deadliest year on record for drug use related deaths! Now there are entire programs in graduate schools where substance use disorder and treatments are the focus, but for your average therapist practicing psychotherapy--they may not have the knowledge about how the drugs interact w/ mental health, empirically-proven treatments, and the drugs themselves to feel confident in helping someone struggling with any type of substance use disorder.

In this episode, Paul Krauss MA LPC and Betsy Byler, MA LPC discuss her work in helping to educate therapists about the treatments available, the substances themselves, and best practices so that they can better serve the communities they practice in.

Betsy Byler, MA, LPC-SAS, ICS, LPCC is a mental health therapist, substance abuse counselor and clinical supervisor. After serving as the director of an agency she moved into private practice in 2019 and continued seeing clients for treatment of trauma and substance abuse. In the fall of 2020 she launched a podcast called All Things Substance aimed at helping therapists gain the information they need to add substance use to their scope of practice.

However, Dr. Balogh takes the reader on a journey inward to understand themselves, their mind, and their behavior. Even further, Dr. Balogh emphasizes many exercise of Eastern Origin that one can do to work on their attitude, insight, and behaviors in their lives. Dr. Mona Balogh, MD goes beyond prevention and tips and goes right for the core of a patient's motivations, their attitudes, and their beliefs. If patients can get some understanding of how their behaviors are affecting their physical condition, then surely than can go further and work on balancing their mind as well. The subtitle of How to Stay Out of My Emergency Room is a bit more telling: Master Your Health and Find Joy in Life by Balancing the Power of Your Mind, Your Body, and Your Higher Self.

In her interview with Paul Krauss MA LPC of The Intentional Clinician podcast, Dr. Mona Balogh outlines her philosophy, tells stories of her experience as an Emergency Room Doctor, and even leads the listeners through a useful exercise to access your higher self. In this interview, you will also learn about how Eastern Philosophy and Western Medicine can be merged in a way that may benefit anyone. This and much more will be discussed in this episode!

What is a Futurist? How future-thinking may influence our Psychology and Philosophy with Sylvia Gallusser [Episode 64]

What is a Futurist? How future-thinking may influence our Psychology and Philosophy with Sylvia Gallusser [Episode 64]

April 24, 2021

Have you ever heard of people that are paid to contemplate the future? It's true! They exist. They are called Futurists. They even have their own training and schools they attend. And no, they are not psychics. They utilize analysis of big data, trends, and other mental exercises to predict multiple models of possible futures--which can be useful to everyday humans as well as companies and governments. Paul Krauss MA LPC invited Sylvia Gallusser onto the Intentional Clinician podcast to tell us all about what a Futurist is (and isn't), as well as how future-thinking exercises could influence our Psychology and how it is related to Philosophy. Together, we also discuss why futurist thinking is needed more now, than ever. Find out why!

Discussed: What a futurist is not, answering the critics of futurism, psychology, psychology and futurism, futurist exercises, future thinking in mental health & psychology, signal scanning, "future back", how futurist principles are aligned with philosophy, time, ideologies, foresight, ethics, limitations in our ability to contemplate the future related to brain structure, mental exercises to stretch our time horizon, future thinking as related to therapeutic tools, as well as examples of futurism in action and applied to projects. And much much more.

The Relationship between Trauma and Chronic Pain with Brandon Yuenger [Episode 63]

The Relationship between Trauma and Chronic Pain with Brandon Yuenger [Episode 63]

April 5, 2021

What is the link between trauma and chronic pain? How is physical therapy related to the field of psychology and mental health? How do you help someone settle their nervous system? Could you teach someone physical therapy techniques virtually?  Could you teach someone to start "self-healing" their body? And what discoveries have some physical therapists made regarding people's experience with trauma and pain in the body?

Paul Krauss MA LPC and Dr. Brandon Yuenger discuss all of these concepts and more in this episode of the Intentional Clinician podcast.

Brandon Yuenger has started his own coaching business called Step Forward Wellness and he also works as a physical therapist in Grand Rapids, MI.

In 2012, Dr. Brandon Yuenger graduated from the University of Michigan-Flint with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.  Shortly thereafter while working with a local rehab hospital to rehabilitate pediatric chronic pain and head injuries, he developed a taste for neurologically based manual therapies and found excellent results with both children and adults alike.  From there, Dr. Yuenger entered the complicated world of chronic pain.  Using a combination of mentoring, intuition and dumb luck he has developed a system of rehabilitation that is based in the understanding that we as people are not a collection of individual parts but one integrated unit of being.  He is excited to share his passion through both practice and education.

Charles is an excellent teacher and discusses various aspects of how to apply the principles of Ayurvedic Medicine to the mind/body/soul of one's self as well as how the balancing efforts of Ayurveda can be utilized to peacefully navigate the multiple and tumultuous geopolitical, financial, environmental, and social upheavals of the present day.

Charles Goodman has devoted his life to the study and practice of ayurveda, the world’s oldest and most complete system of healthcare. From 1987 to 1992, he studied and worked at The Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the preeminent center for ayurveda in the U.S. There he completed a range of academic programs and developed skills in a variety of ayurvedic treatments. A two-year internship, under professor and ayurvedic physician Dr. Vasant Lad, led to Mr. Goodman’s appointment as Chief Administrative Officer and clinical associate at the Institute. In this capacity, Mr. Goodman had overall responsibility for managing the Institute, teaching specialized courses and attending Dr. Lad’s clients as needed. Mr. Goodman also founded and was the editor of Ayurveda Today, the first journal in the United States devoted exclusively to Ayurvedic medicine.​

What is Trauma-Informed Counseling and What is the Science Behind It? [Episode 58]

What is Trauma-Informed Counseling and What is the Science Behind It? [Episode 58]

January 11, 2021

Paul Krauss MA LPC presents:

What is Trauma-Informed Counseling and What is the Science Behind It?

In partnership with Acadia Health's online series "All the Rage." To educate practitioners on various topics.

Watch the video version of this presentation with slides:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIe2is8Lbp4&list=PLOQfdSDVP-71MaD33FBOzCihPb6kuZ2qG

The neurobiology studies and scientific research which launched the trauma-informed care initiative in the last 20 years, is one of the most important developments in understanding the human condition, the way in which symptoms originate, how life experiences and “trauma” influence the spectrum of human adaptation, thoughts, behaviors, physical health and more—and is the key to understanding the importance of the entire mind-body therapy paradigm as well as why integrated care is paramount for the prevention of and recovery from mental illness.

This presentation outlines some of the copious amounts of research that have proven the trauma-informed care paradigm to be empirically valid, and how knowledge of trauma-informed counseling techniques can lead to improved outcomes in all forms of healthcare—including, and especially mental health interventions.

This presentation will educate practitioners on how to recognize the common experiences and reactions to trauma. In addition, this presentation will equip practitioners with simple ways to begin utilizing a trauma-informed care paradigm with counseling techniques to empower and educate clients—so that they may begin the journey of recovery and continue on into personal resiliency.

Further, this presentation aims to utilize the basic scientific facts of trauma-informed care to challenge ingrained cultural notions that often distort, dilute, and contaminate the interventions of many well-meaning by clinicians who are not “trauma-informed” and do not have any trauma-specific interventions in their clinical “toolbox.” This presentation will also touch on current and generational societal attitudes and assumptions that perpetuate traumatic incidents within the culture of the United States—as well as the statistical odds of negative health outcomes that may result from suffering a trauma or multiple traumatic events (e.g. hypertension, increased risk of suicide, increased risk of suffering from severe mental illness, increased risk of obesity and related pulmonary disorders, increased risk of drug/alcohol addiction, increased statistical odds of being a victim of violence etc.).
