The Surprising Power of Compliments
"After a year of kobe many of us are finding that our social skills are a little rusty. We're finally getting more opportunities to meet others. But we've lost some of the social niceties and techniques that make human connection so meaningful. The good news is there's a simple thing you can do to rebuild your social muscle and to raise your level of happiness. The answer is compliments. There's power and giving them and getting them to learn more we talked to lindsey liben psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker. Here's what she had to say lindsay. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me so let me start by asking. Why are compliments so important in our lives. And why are they so important right now. Compliments allow us to connect with the people around us and really bring people together in a lot of different ways. And i find it. It's a really easy and disarming way of forming a connection. That's especially great because you can use it if you're just meeting someone as an icebreaker or few already know them you can use it to deepen the relationship i find you know. This episode is really coming at such an important time. Because after a year of being told the isolate and keep our distance we're experiencing a social inflection point. I think a lot of people are finding that as immunity rose. and we're unmasking. We're now faced with the possibility of returning to in-person contact and what that might be exciting. It can also be intimidating and leave us feeling unprepared. Actually the american psychological association just released a study that said about half. The people surveyed were actively worried about adjusting to in person interaction. So i think to the audience if you're having a little bit of social anxiety please know that you're not alone. I think it's important to acknowledge that after a year without regular active socialization your social skills will start to weaken interactions might not be as dynamic or is electric as we buy them to be and when wendy's hills there's sort of like muscles they need to be worked and conditioned to the strong when you call up on them as almost like if you signed up to run a ten k race. But you didn't have the opportunity to train of you'd be feeling uncomfortable because you're out of rapids so i find instead of just accepting the discomfort anxiety one of the best ways to alleviate it is to give yourself options and that's where the compliment comes into play because it's one of the strongest and most versatile tools in the well-being toolbox to help you navigate social exchanges. That's great before we get into the specifics of complements what are the positive effects of giving them and receiving them so when you give a received compliments it's actually not just about making the others feel good. It directly improves your levels of happiness in your own relationships. There's actually a really good article from the journal of personality and social psychology. That concludes that when you express appreciation for your partner. Both people become more responsive to each others needs. It allows you to work through the hard times a little more effectively. And i think we can all use a little more happiness and resilience and meaningful engagement in our lives. And i understand. You have a specific technique forgiving complements. What is that i do. That's called the sage approach s. a. g. e. and it stands for specific authentic grateful and empower. And how does that work so it works by starting off to make your compliments sincere. I encourage people to zone in on a specific task or quality or attribute that they admire in another person. I really encourage you to keep it. Simple really skip. The hyperbole over the top planes tend to discredit the compliment. So for example. When you hear people say oh my goodness. That's the best thing i ever ate. Well you probably know. It's not the best thing they ever eat. So don't undermine yourself this leads me to the next part which is authenticity after you have a focus. Try to weave in a personal an action express the compliment from your heart and you strong. I contact if you can really just try to be as authentic as you can. It doesn't matter if it's the highest praise someone has ever received. If it's sincere it will have a much greater impact. The g. in sage stands for gratitude. And this is one of my favorite parts because it allows you to reflect on the goodness in your own life and then express the appreciation for these gifts. It's what's most valuable parts of a compliment because it can also allow you to deepen your connection with the receiver. There's a lot of research. That's out there that connects gratitude with higher levels of happiness and resilience and meaningful connection double win. Because as you start to feel more connected and comfortable the positivity bubbles over into other areas of your life and that actually leads me to the e which is for empowering and this last bit of advice is to direct your compliment towards empowering actions. I encourage people to celebrate the confidence boosting behaviors like if someone didn't awesome job spearheading a presentation or modeling. Courage reflect that back to them because when someone exposes a vulnerability. they're more to authentic positive responses. So if you feel moved share it. I also really just encouraged giving sage compliments whenever the opportunity strikes. Make the morning of the person who you're lot at you know. Or if you catch the eye of an unassuming stander who thinks their head in the clouds the more opportunities you have to practice a more natural it will feel

Why Is It So Hard to Remember What Day It Is?
"In the early part of the twenty first century psychologist dr david. A ls performed possibly the shortest experiment in the history of the social sciences. He gathered sixty five randomly. Selected test subjects invited them into his office one by one and asked them this fateful question. What day is today. that's it thank you. Please sign the release form on the way out done so what could possibly learn from asking people the day of the week. A heck of a lot as it turns out using this simple experiment and others ellis was trying to decode the complex psychology of time. And even to help answer. The age-old question wait is wednesday or thursday because although each weekday is twenty four hours long they're far from equal from a psychological standpoint. We spoke with ls via phone back in two thousand fifteen from the university of lincoln in the uk. He said when you ask people about monday and friday they have a lot to tell you and those words evoke very strong emotions whereas when you ask them about the middling days people tend to draw a blank asked to free associate about monday. Ellison test subjects wrote strongly. Negative words like tired boring early and rubbish it being the uk after all and when asked to describe friday they came up with wildly positive. Words like fun friends party and someone unexpectedly bacon. When asked about the rest of the week people struggled to come up with anything at all. Tuesday for some is like a monday hangover long and busy topped the list but the description most people came up with for wednesday was simply middle there even a lot more pop songs about mondays and fridays and other days of the week considered new. Order's blue monday mamas. And papas monday monday. The bengals manic. Monday the cures friday. I'm in love. Katy perry's last friday night. Rascal flatts friday though. Of course let's not discount. The midweek brilliance of the rolling stones ruby tuesday but ellis pointed out that there can be serious unintended consequences to these strong and weak psychological associations with certain days of the week he explained. Suicide rates are higher at the start of the week for example and stocks. Perform better on friday. Mr medical appointments also peak at the start of the week in the united states. These can be a costly inconvenience for doctors and patients but they can be costly to the whole community for state run health systems like in the uk the better we understand the psychological biases toward different days of the week ellis says the better we can tailor interventions and then settled nudges. That might have significant societal. Pay off in a previous study for example l. Found that working. People are much more likely to miss monday. Doctors appointments than retirees. The health system could save loads money but retirees at the beginning of the week. And us working stiffs on fridays. Which brings us back to the original question what they is it today when alice asked that question. He timed each subject's response on mondays and fridays. He discovered people gave the correct answer twice as fast as people ask on tuesdays wednesdays and thursdays some mid week folks couldn't think of the day at all given the strong if opposing psychological associations with monday and friday. It's not surprising that people are more aware of those days. It seems the rest of the work week and get lost in the shuffle.
"american psychological association" Discussed on WGN Radio
"Of early voting sites and voter registration. Vice President Mike Pence, and his Democratic challenger, California Senator Comma Harris, are set to face off in a debate tonight. The debate in some Salt Lake City is one of the most highly anticipated anticipated vice presidential debates in recent memory.

Can Your Diet Help Reduce Stress?
"What nutritional things can we do to help our stress levels and what can we do about the belly fat that being more stressed makes us onto. Well Kristen is not the only one feeling more stressed. In recent months the American Psychological Association conducts an annual poll to gauge overall stress levels in the population and the specific things that people are stressed about change from year to year. But the overall level of stress remains fairly constant even in the best of times, the majority of Americans report living with moderate to high levels of stress and they feel that their stress levels aren't healthy. Well, not surprisingly a new poll conducted in April and May of twenty twenty found that reported stress levels have jumped up considerably in response to the global. Pandemic. As. Many of us know all too well reaching for sweets or other comfort foods is a typical coping mechanism when we're stressed and with many people cooped up at home stress and boredom eating is definitely on the rise leading to weight gain, and if that weren't bad enough research does suggest that when we're stressed those comfort calories may lead to weight gain more quickly because of those high cortisol levels that Kristen mentioned. A couple of months ago I actually gave an online workshop with some strategies to help reduce stress eating, and if you missed that the replay is still available, you can access that at way less dot life slash healthy at home way last life slash healthy at home for some strategies to reduce stress eating. But wouldn't it be great if there were foods or nutrients that could defuse anxiety and ward off the negative effects of daily stress? No wonder I see. So many magazine and Web articles about Stress Busting Foods. Unfortunately, a lot of these are just puff pieces with little to no scientific basis sometimes, however, journalists will interview actual scientists about the research. The problem is that researchers often use that word stress to means something very different than what the general population of stress and that often leads to confusion. When we say we're stressed. We usually mean that we feel overwhelmed or anxious too many demands, deadlines and worries and not enough time money and energy to get it all done. Researchers on the other hand often measure physiological stress responses which don't necessarily correspond to our psychological experience. So when they report that food or a nutrient has an effect on stress that doesn't necessarily mean that you will feel better or. When you eat it let me just give you one example. In a story on the connection between Diet and stress researcher Robert. Ludwig told the morning edition about an experiment that he did on obese teenage boys in which the boys who eight highly processed cereal for breakfast had higher levels of Adrenaline, which is a stress hormone. Then those who ate a high protein breakfast instead. And the boys who ate more protein were also less hungry and they ate fewer calories at lunch. So chalk one up for a high protein breakfast. Unfortunately nobody asked the boys about their mood or how stressed they fell. So we don't know whether those different breakfast meals had any effect on whether they felt any more or less stressed. Nonetheless, if you had heard that piece on the radio, you probably would have concluded as did the reporter that eating lots of refined carbs and sugar will make you feel more stressed and anxious. But hang on just a minute because in her book, the Serotonin powered Diet Dr Judas Werthmann claims that a big dose of refined carbohydrates is exactly what you should eat to feel more relaxed and happy, and that's because refined carbohydrates promote the production of Serotonin, a feel good neurotransmitter. So which is it are we supposed to eat carbs or are we supposed to avoid them to beat stress? Will the reason that these two scientists seem to be contradicting one? Another is that they're measuring completely different things. Ludwig is looking at the effect of Diet on adrenal hormones and Workman is describing the effect of Diet on neurotransmitters of the to neuro transmitters probably have a closer relationship to our mood. Nonetheless I. Think the disadvantages of Workmen's approach outweigh. The benefits eating refined carbohydrates may temporarily boost your serotonin levels after all. That's probably why we crave them when we feel down. But they also send your blood sugar, insulin energy and appetite on a roller coaster ride and riding that rollercoaster on a regular basis is a good way to increase your risk of type two diabetes and heart
Black Girls In Gaming
"Thank you so much for joining us today Melissa. Thank you for having me. Excited to chat about this metoo. So can you just tell us a little bit about your background? Melissa. How did you find space for yourself a gaming? Well I playing games, my entire life I mean literally as soon as I could hold a controller in my hands, I've been playing with my cousins in my aunts baseman mostly fighting games you pass the controller around tournament style and eventually evolved to playing other games with my siblings growing up I have a brother and a sister, and I think the invention of the Nintendo sixty four is probably the greatest thing that ever happened to ask because it allowed all three of us to play at the same time. which most other consoles didn't do before that. My Daddy is to get used consuls, `electronic stories and we read games blockbuster and we'd all play together and my mom daddy's to watch us in times personally I on us but also partially because they were just curious and interested about games gaming, they both Geeks, they love comics, all kinds of things like that. But. I never actually imagined myself working in games I never really thought about the people who behind the Games who actually made them. So I actually intended to become a researcher public health researcher and work either in academia or at the federal government doing health research that was going to advance programs that would help support people of Color and people from Lgbtq community is substance abuse trickiest mental health. So that's actually how I started my career. I went got my PhD in a field called socio medical sciences, which is a combination of social psychology in. Public. Health. And I did that research for while it looked at drug use and mental health and people of Color HIV risk behavior, and I enjoyed answering these questions that helped people like I love being able to ask an answer my own questions that I thought would really have a difference, make a difference in the communities of color that were like heavily impacted by some of these issues. But one of the things that always nickel that me a little bit was the amount of time that it took for the research insights that I came up with to turn into action. If. You've ever interacted with you know that you know it can take a couple of years to go from the beginning of a research project into just a paper, much less any kind of program out of it and I wanted to see more immediate impact with my work. So I started looking for other careers could use my skills as a researcher have a more immediate impact but I could see coming out days or weeks rather than. In measured in years so I started looking into user experience research and technology but again, I didn't really focus on game specifically. I was just looking at tech in general. And I found this job at xbox Microsoft websites literally just by chance I didn't know anybody at Microsoft I didn't have any like network my way in or anything the closest connection I hadn't seen somebody speaking Pan on American Psychological Association conference WHO's on my team but I was like, wow, that sounds awesome. I WanNa to do that. They'll probably never hire me because I'm coming from a completely different field, but I was wrong and he did. And that's how I ended up here. It was kind of a winding path and a little bit of a nontraditional wide but really loving and enjoying experience of being able to make gains and see what I, call it my fingerprints on all of these different projects and games they've gotten the chance to work on. It is such a cool story and you know really speaks to why I often described psychology as like this field that really opens all these other doors for you because I feel like it just lends itself to doing that only one thing but lots of different things Yup i. think that's absolutely true and ideally volunteer college admission advising, and that's what I tell the students that I work with all the time I'm like you determine where You Go and you can learn a lots of different skills and other things that will help you get to field. There's lots of different ways that you can turn lots of different majors and they're such a need for people who understand social science and how people think and behave and interact with each other So I'm curious to hear a little bit more about how your mental health background now informs the work that you do in gaming. Absolutely. So there's kind of two sides to it. There's a research methods side, and then there's the actual content of mental hall. So briefly, a lot of the methods that I learned in graduate school that I used when I was doing research on mental health I now use the same ones when I'm in research on video games and people's here's all that research training that you get is going to be useful no matter where you go and it's even useful when I'm not doing direct research because. It influences the way that I think about things I take scientific lens to approach things
How To Navigate Stress
"Everyone? This is Patrick Baranov. I'm here to do a Webinar on how to effectively navigate stress and lead slash help others and the reason I have lead in there because to me as we go through this. I think you'll see that. This is not just a workshop on how to navigate stress internally, but to me this is about this is a leadership workshop where I spend most of. My time working with organizations so a little bit of background. Be Behind me. I run a podcast called lead like no other actions that inspire which will soon be changing to leadership reimagined, and that really is. Based on a lot of the work that I've been doing this podcast has been in existence for. Almost, two years now, but some of my background ice tablist, my business in two thousand eight, which, for those that remember that was our last financial crisis so I'm I'm familiar with the space for for what that's worth, and there are three areas that I focus. My work on one is on emotional intelligence. A model that I use is out of Australia. The group is called Genus, and it's a workplace model I also do a lot of work both disk in the five dysfunctions of a team. In combining those and then the last piece, it's like a three legged stool. Is Around Influence and bias research. And I was able to get certified and trained under a gentleman named Robert Dini down in Phoenix Arizona, the three of those for all of the work that I do and what we're GonNa talk about today in regards to leader stress, management and leading. Are All relevant and pieces. Those will come out throughout this. So. Here's some contact information for me as well. And I will start this out as I mentioned to me this leadership workshop. Even though we're talking about stress, management and I say that from this quote. John Quincy Adams said if your actions inspire someone. To Do to dream, more learn more do more and become more your leader. Nothing in here about a title and I think we really have an opportunity. It's our actions that will inspire others, and how we relate to stress and navigate stress, ourselves will have the ability to impact other people around us to, and that's why they're so important. So, the objectives here right explore the biological psychological and social aspects of the Human Stress Response, and it is a response and we're GONNA. Look at it really from a few different areas right the physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual impact of stress, and it really does impact all of those. So then we'll look at understanding. What are some of the coping strategies that we can use to either increase, or what once damage our resilience? And this really is meant to be almost a buffet, even though you probably can't find buff as anymore because of the environment we're in. That this really will be an opportunity to take a look at what are some different strategies that I can use that fit in in my lifestyle. You don't need to choose them all. But there's something here for everybody in terms of how you can effectively navigate, stress yourself or help somebody else. And then from there, we'll look at a model that I put together and it's journal actually. Called the power. Journal, and there are a number of activities in that promote both wellbeing resilience. And this is based on a lot of research I will say foundationally. One of them is based on one that was done by gentleman named Sean Acre. WHO A HARVARD RESEARCHER! And he did what was called the twenty one day challenge, and he actually did this back in Glebe two thousand nine, so at that point of financial crisis before. And he actually did it with A. Group Company that was in the financial industry. And what they found when they when they did these activities that we'll talk about the end. That the the individuals that were able to follow through on this twenty one day challenge themselves to be in a happier place and to me if we can identify those things and find that and find a way to be happier, rebuild more resilient and well. Being I think all of us want that. Especially now. So a couple pieces of research talking about the origins of stress. If you weren't familiar before you probably are now in regards to the CDC their definition of stress, harmful, physical and psychological responses when job requirements don't match capabilities, skills, resources, or needs of the worker and I think in the environment that we're in now. Most of US probably feel stress in one of those areas. Now, what's important here is this. CDC's definition also goes on to say that this should not be confused with challenges and I've listed. You stress here. Because we need stress stresses important for us as well because it provides us an opportunity. To grow and improve. It's only when we lose control of it. That it becomes damaging to us and really that's what this workshop or webinars focused on. Undoing is providing ways that we can take the stress that we're dealing with the situations that we're dealing with and find ways to navigate those and I would say almost leverage these. So the next piece I'll talk about. Is this one that was done by the? American psychological, association. This was a survey. Twenty fourteen where they served. A little over three thousand individuals, and they ask them questions in four different areas, work money, family and health. I've only listed to here. Is it relates to both work in financial stress but I think if we were to take this today. We probably would all agree that? These would probably higher than sixty percent.
Dr. Allen Berger: Overcoming Anxiety And Fear During Quarantine
"Dr. Berger what can you tell us to help us cope with these massive psychological challenges in these massively weird times? Well I think the first thing that want to say is that Were all experiencing anxiety to some level right now. That is the new normal today. We make a distinction between fear anxiety and a lot of feeling fear. Because there's a real threat out there Dr Taback and really help us understand that. So our reaction to this. The fearful part of it is quite appropriate. That's the reality of it but I think what will be important today. Bill is for us to make that distinction between fear anxiety in to talk about the anxiety. Part the fearful part. We need to do what everybody's telling us to do in order to to stop the spread of this thing in into you know decrease our risk of being able in getting the covy nineteen and that's different from anxiety. Well no that's that's the fearful part. That's the appropriate. Reaction of fear is taking the steps necessary to protect yourself. The anxiety gets in in when we start imagining. What's going to happen so when we leave right now? We go into the future. You see as soon as you start imagining catastrophic outcomes. I'm going to be in in bad shape emotionally. How does this get all the worst for someone who might be home these days? Who's already been struggling with some kind of addiction or challenge with alcohol or drugs? How did they get through this? Yeah that's such an important question. Look in and we're all trying to mobilize as many resources as we can to reach out to people that are isolated. And it's a weird thing. Isn't it where isolated but in some way were even more in community now than before and I think that's an important thing for us to realize were really connected right now and we really need each other more than we've ever in addiction and recovery. We talk about. I can't but we can and that whole idea is so important at this moment more than ever. I mean if we can remove ourselves really from this particular you know terrible crisis that were in in just sort of look at it from a bird's eye view there's an amazing message in the global nature of this disease. Right it's to me. The message is one of humility mean. It's really right sizing us in an incredible way. Isn't it Dr Data? And also just how universal this is we are all human beings. We're all going to be vulnerable. We all need to take care of each other and take care of our planet. I mean you can debate back and forth global warming this or not. There's no debate here when it comes to corona virus and it's almost as if the forces of nature have said Wake Up People. You need to be banding together to work for a common goal. Not just corona but the health of the world's for your own sake. I love that. It's it's almost like nature is saying. Hey everybody wake up waking up a wake up call. It's a big wakeup call for some of US. Like myself or watching. Cnn All day long and and you know watching those numbers on the right hand side of the of the screen continue to go up and this is. The stress gets more and more overwhelming. You you do find yourself even if you're not struggling with things like depression normally or addiction You find yourself kind of different. It does something to you just listening to. What's going on in the world and then dealing with the am I gonNa get it or any of my family members going to get it. What should I be doing to protect myself at home? And this is weird because my business could be falling apart. Can you give us some ideas on steps? We can take personally to try to manage that kind of thing in. How can we recognize if we're not managing it? Well yeah that's a very important question. Bill American Psychological Association came out with some guidelines and one other top guidelines was limit your exposure to the news right now. Now that's not the same as saying you know. Become an in on ostrich. Stick your head in the sand in and don't pay attention to what's going on but we've got to find a balance between being informed but at the same time taking care of ourselves and so limiting exposures important thing. That's what I started to do. A give myself a ten minute quota. Ten minutes I get to watch news a day and that's it and then the rest of the time you know. I'm engaged in other things. So that's the first thing right is really pay attention to limiting your time. That's GONNA help people with their anxiety a lot. So tell me what what are some of the other things? I've heard about diet and exercise and sleep but Maybe you can kind of help part listeners. Understand what are the steps that they should take to try to keep as healthy as possible? Let me put it in the context of this concept in addition to our physical center gravity. There's an emotional center gravity and when I keep my emotional center gravity over my two feet. Then I cope a lot better. Try Give this virus by emotional center gravity or what's going on in the world my emotional center gravity then my wellbeing depends on what's going on around me and today that's really bad news. Your it said it's pretty common. It's critical Woodson. It's what we're all doing and see this. Is the opportunity. See if we used. This is an opportunity to become aware of ourselves in how we function. What's our habitual ways of thinking and feeling we've got an opportunity to really do some phenomenal growth. So you say that. The there's a difference between fear anxiety you alluded to that. Would you say fear would be the rational perspective of the challenge that were under at the moment and that the anxiety irrational portion of that? That's correct so if I stay grounded in in in respond to my fear appropriately. What am I gonNA? Do you know the steps that we need to take to stop the spread of this and to protect ourselves. You know. Finally we're talking about everybody putting a mask on before you leave the house you know if there's no host for this thing to to survive in and we're going to be able to stop the spread of this thing so that becomes an incredibly important thing and I think that's what they did to finally get control the Spanish fool back in nineteen eighteen so from day to day perspective to sort of move in the moment and realize that right. Now you're fine. You're not sick this focus on what's good. Let's do what I can do what I am in control of. Let me take control of that. What is what is your recommendation for. How the average person who may have just low level anxiety and even more so those people who have a heightened level anxiety. How do you keep people away from delving into that? What IF SCENARIO WELL. That's such a great question. Let me tell you how I work with that. My office right. There's a rational part of me that you just referred to. There's a healthy part of me that that responds appropriately situations takes care of myself from a rational basis will. There's also a part of me that I call my anxious self. Now that part of me can take a situation like this and come up with all kinds of catastrophic outcomes. I'm GONNA get this. I'M GONNA die in a hospital loan although saint. That's possible outcome whether that's going to happen for me or not is yet to be determined so when I start to project into the future. I've got to start to think about that. The side of me. That's projecting into the future is the part of me. I need to deal with so I need to start separating myself from the part of me that's making me anxious and see. This is a very important step in terms of being able to now manager anxiety. Well or would I would say in the way I'm talking about now. Manage are anxious self. But do you think that on some level that the human being with our existential reality that to some extent this anxiety you put yourself through the what if in a way to try to prepare yourself in the event that it takes place thinking that maybe that may cushion the blow to try to put yourself through the potential horrendous aspects of the future so that you will not be shocked in unprepared if were to take place? We call anticipatory coping. And you're right on. We do that right. We anticipate these situations was it. How NEAT WELL. It is if you do it once maybe twice but when you do it a thousand times in you run through a scenario over and over again. You're no longer preparing. Now you're throwing yourself into a big into a panic right. You're going to have a panic attack. I do go down that road of what if and then I have a real myself back To rational thought how do you really yourself back could tell us what you do. The first thing that I do say okay. You know what you got a job to do. Focus on what's going on right now. Number one Suai become try to become more philosophical and I say it's here now anyway we all know that we're dying eventually We don't want it to be tomorrow. We don't want it to be two weeks from now but we all know. We've been preparing for this in many ways our whole lives and so. I try to be philosophical about say it's GonNa Happen. But let's focus on what's good. Let's focus on what we can control. Let's talk about the psychological stress on medical staff who have to deal with this every day. Not only do they have a concern. They have to even if they claim they don't they. They have to have a little bit of concern for themselves in this case multiplied by just an overwhelming feeling of lack of control because this virus seems to have its own trajectory and they get surprise suddenly. There's there's a patient he was doing well a few minutes ago. And all of a sudden now they're crashing and need to be put on a ventilator. How our healthcare workers supposed to deal with that kind of stress? You guys are all in my prayers right now in terms of what you guys are facing here. Here's what we know bill. Is that when you let the situation control you? Then you're GonNa have the best possible response to it. No let me explain it. Because intuitively that seems what do you mean? You're abdicating any responsibility for letting this situation control you while the opposite is true. You see if I go into a situation thinking I'm GonNa Control Everything in Dr Steve. You know this better than most if I think I can control everything. That's going to be happening in front of me. I'm setting myself for for some big trouble because then I become fixed in my response if something has to be a certain way if it's supposed to look like this then. I'M NOT GONNA be able to respond to what it is and what we know. Is your coping increases when you let go of what's supposed to be happening and you start to deal with. What is if I let go of all of my rules of what's supposed to be happening bill? I can respond much better inside every one of us. In every one of those M- those healthcare professionals right now is an incredible ability to adapt into deal with situations as they

"News the trump administration's new public charge policy changes went into effect today this makes it difficult for some immigrants to get visas and green cards the critics call a wealth tax do you think it's not good public policy critics including Dr Arthur Evans of the American psychological association said the move will push away low income and working class immigrants we know that when you make small changes to these kinds of programs I can have a big dent about they can have a big impact on people accessing those services the White House released a statement Friday saying the rule would quote protect hardworking American taxpayers safeguard welfare programs for truly needy Americans and it would reduce the federal
Why Gen Z is being labelled Generation Anxiety
"So it's twenty twenty. We're officially in the next great decade. But I won't lie to you. It's hard to be optimistic. About what the future sure holds a new report says home. Affordability is a growing problem for the average Canadian families. A new study of wildfires around the world from the Amazon rainforest to California says human activity is raising temperatures and adding to the threat. Job Market is tough and it's especially tough for college graduates. A huge number of them are actually working at jobs. That don't even fire a college degree if you're a millennial or a boomer or one of those rare rare Gen xers you might be able to get away with blaming this pessimism for the future on your age and life experience but the same can't be said for generations the young bucks of the future. Today's teens and young adults they should be excited about the next ten years keyword should in reality party they aren't instead they're being labeled generation anxiety anxiety is nothing new among young people but Gen Z.. is worried about vote. Much bigger and more pressing issues than previous generations. So how much of it is justifiable. How is it affecting young people right now? And what can other generations due to be more helpful and understanding I'm Stephanie Phillips in for Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Johanna Chisholm is a digital. It'll producer at the Toronto Star. She looked into why Gen Z.. Is being labeled generation anxiety. Hydra Hannah. Hello how are you Stephanie. I'm good thanks so when we first reached out to you to get you on the show you said that this topic you know really interested you What about this topic interested you so much for sure I'll admit that it was assigned to me by an editor. So I don't WanNa take full credit for it But what I was given the opportunity to sort of dig into this topic. I was Gung gung-ho because partially previous reporting that I had done kind of focused on Internet culture in youth and so I had come across bits of anxiety in teens in adolescence revolving mostly around like self harm on social media accounts but when I was given the opportunity to dig into why it is that the more broad generation is experiencing anxiety at such high rates than other generations. I thought this is an awesome time to go on. This and I had the space to do. It hadn't hadn't editor support to do it so that's really why I was really interested in digging into it so you wrote that Gen Z.. is going to be remembered as this. This generation anxiety. So what is the reason. Most recent data tell us about the levels of anxiety for this generation. There was a lot of really interesting. Thank studies that came out about this. The one that I thought was most relevant to our readers that are you know Toronto Ontario focused Cam each study. That came out that she saw a fifteen percent increase in youth. Anxiety between two thousand thirteen and two thousand seventeen and that was in the Self reporting so again. There are problems with that but but this huge jump to see just in five years. That teens are self reporting that they themselves are suffering from severe psychological distress which is characterized as either depression or anxiety symptoms and then there was an EPA study that came out from the American psychological association that sort of mirrored that data in Americans Americans students that it was doubling from two thousand ten to two thousand fifteen which is in that same sweet spot. We were talking about with the two thousand ten being this sort of anxious decade So that that was confirming in the numbers and then the part that I was assigned tasked with really doing was going to the kids and the teens and actually speaking speaking with them to find out what's going on with you guys not that you can really contrast it with the before but just to get their takes on why they're feeling anxious and what's going on there air so so who did you talk to And and what did they tell you about their anxiety So there was a large group of teens that reach out to me. Initially Ashley. It was kind of hard getting you know. Anxious people to come forward and talk about their most intimate feelings about things but eventually I was able to get a hold of Some teens from ages fourteen to seventeen who are in high school and junior high to get thirsty takes on it from more to less inside of things and then I was able to get teens. Who are in the university level? So twenty two twenty three because Gen Z.. Cuts off twenty-three. In most situations some people push it to be twenty-five five. I think but I think most people agree like Pew Research Center Says Ninety Seven to two thousand twelve. Is Jesse because you had to be. I guess like sentient went for nine. Eleven for that event to be characterized as millennial and yeah so I spoke with a bunch of different teens all who were experiencing different kinds of anxiety Heidi and kind of different levels of awareness about it so once I spoke with he didn't even really characterize his symptoms as anxiety because he didn't even really know that it was anxiety he was just looking out at. What are my prospects after I graduate and he no? He's an ECON student at the University of Toronto. A student and really good and pretty sure. He's good for for jobs after graduation but even he was looking at job banks Canada every single day and was like my heart just feels heavy. I was getting Migraines at the library and couldn't really like put into words why he was feeling these things and then when someone asked him like hey do you think it's anxiety he was like. Oh maybe I don't know whereas other students I spoke with reveal airy capable of putting the words to what they were feeling so I think that also speaks to level of awareness ernest. That's out there for young people that previously wasn't there right and I spoke with a climate activist in high school. who had some very powerful awful things to say for seventeen year old that I quite honestly was blown away by but she was sort of just experience or explaining how you know she would talk to her dad about it was like for him growing up and the contrast between what she's looking at and what he was looking at? which was you know? Buy a home get a job or get a job by home. Live in the suburbs CBS. Pay Off your mortgage and she's looking at it like. How am I going to afford school? I don't even know if I can with all these. Oh stop cuts with all of these different stressors in the economy. Hey how can I even think about getting to the point where I'm getting a job or so much even buying a house There's a lot lot in there. Yeah those are big issues. Yeah complicated issues. What is research? Tell us about the world that these young people are well. There was a lot And part of the issue had Haad reporting it was like I'm packing it all into one article because you know you look at the world that these kids are walking into the world is on fire quite right literally at their feet. A precarious work is a huge issue. For them one in ten Canadians I believe stats candles. Reports that are part of the GIG. Economy and precarious work isn't just GIG. Work present as contract work or part time work but there's just an increasing amount of this non secure lifestyle that these other parents have There's also also the retreat of democracy that we're seeing fake news You know just social media technology all of these different things it's the cacophony of things. Just being shutdown these kids throats. So it's it's a lot that's To unpack for someone. Who's you know this vulnerable age group? Who are now between the ages of eighteen take twenty three to accept just digest and be like okay? Well maybe I won't be able to get a job and maybe I won't be able to afford a house and all those things that basically secured cured having good quality of life aren't going to be attainable. Well I I was talking about it. With other producers on our team and a lot of them expressed russell. They had feelings of anxiety when they were in high school or university. But it wasn't about these like big issues news about things that were kind of in control like their friendships or short term goals. Like you know. What University am I going to go to our? What job am I going to guide? Or what skill am I going. Go into that kind of thing. So what makes the situation for Gen Z.. So so different. Why are they concerned with these big issues? I will say that I think technology definitely is playing a large role in it. Part of the the Kwanza have with like pointing our fingers right technology to be the thing that's causing us is sort of a knee jerk reaction to say. Oh you know. Phones and cell phones and social media are causing all these woes and our youth because that sort of rationale has been applied to previous generations. When you Komo TV was causing it? We always point our finger at exactly social media digital world share But I definitely think it plays a role and I was speaking with a a researcher in the United States who sort of studies the role of technology and family life. Okay and she was explaining how not just technology but the way the information nation the sheer quantity of information that is just constantly available at your hip and just a moments away versus previously when you could kind of choose to not be turned the TV on and you could choose to have the radio off. That's not an option so much for teens The other thing that I'll point out that in some of the feedback that I received from Just readers who are of those generations you know the the boomers the Gen xers they were pointing out the stressors that they

Mental Health Woes Are Rising in Young Americans
"A new survey finds that social media is linked to a rise in mental health disorders with more on this story. Here's USA radio networks. Chris Barnes, the American psychological association, releasing its national survey a few days ago in which it finds mental health issues. Have risen significantly over the last decade, they credit that rise in digital media. As a major reason why the research finds that more and more young adults. Specifically those born in one thousand nine hundred five or later are suffering from negative psychological symptoms and studies do show that more social media. Use is linked to increase symptoms of social anxiety, social isolation and loneliness
Mental health problems rise significantly among young Americans
"Social media may not be good for your kids mental health. A study by the American psychological association is found the number of teens and young adults in the US who are depressed have had suicidal thoughts or are mentally distressed has gone up significantly in the last ten years the percentages for older adults remained the same during the same period. There was an especially large spike in twenty eleven researchers site that as the your social media emerged the study shows some of the highest increases in mental health disorders are among young women and those at higher
Social media linked to spike in mental health disorders in teens
"They say social media is linked to a rise in mental health disorders in teenagers or young adults. Born after one thousand nine hundred five are experiencing more and more mental health issues. And they think it's because the social media now when you guys hear that you're like, okay, I've heard this. It's been beaten to death. All right, people on social media. They get depressed. Okay. What are you guys on social media? Are you guys on Facebook Twitter? Instagram. Certain. Red. It's. Certain sites. Rica comment on stuff, that's social media, social media. About Facebook Twitter. You guys are dating apps. You guys communicate with others through the internet. The kind of all counts. And do you notice? And it's okay to admit this that if you post something on the internet or on social media, or whatever and you get some likes. Are you get some attention? You feel good. Picture posted a picture. My lunch. They like the way my lunch looks the. Yeah. You feel a little good. People are noticing. If people are thinking about you mean, they don't some people just like like like a move on. Don't give it a second thought. But that's not what you think you think that oh, you know, they're really into their fan of yours. He felt like you have a fan. It's really it's really euphemistic, you know, where you feel like, you know, people really care about what you say or do. They don't think that because they like something on social media. Have you ever felt bad because you posted something and crickets, just nothing? Well. You're a little tougher because you're a grown up in your lack of social media stupid. I'm not gonna let a post that failed. You know, I'll go ahead and live about my day. It'd be fine. But not for these young adults because this is the world they're in. If they post something of social media, and it doesn't get likes. It's a bad day for some. This is the world there, and they don't know our world. Our world was if somebody gives you a phone call or if somebody gives you a look or a week. You know, you're like, I still got it. I'm good. They don't have. That's not their world. If somebody doesn't notice your social media post. It's it's it's a big deal. So the research published in the American psychological association found sharp increases in the number of young adults and adolescents who reported experiencing negative psychological symptoms, specifically those born in one thousand nine hundred or later. The greatest spike happened around two thousand eleven and that's when social media exploded. I mean, I got on Facebook two thousand nine with radio. But it really got big really big, you know, about a year or two later medical standpoint. I think it's because the lack of sleep. You know, our phones absorbs and then my phone will light up the whole room when somebody comments on my post. So my phone is always just somebody just commented on your Facebook post. So I'm starting to post less at night. So my phone does a blow up and wake me up. But your body picks up on that. And so you're not getting good sleep. Plus, it's hard to fall asleep. If you're on social media or on your phone before you go to bed. So. Older adults. They haven't seen such a rise in psychological symptoms. Symptoms, but they found an increase of major depression, suicidal, thoughts, psychological, distress and more attempted suicides after two thousand ten versus the mid-2000s. They see that increase was by far the largest in adolescence and young adults. These trends are weak or non-existent among adults twenty six years old and over suggested a generational shift in mood disorders instead of an overall increase across all ages. Why are young kids thinking about suicide? Well, is it because people on YouTube are teaching them? How to do it is because people on social media are telling them go coach yourself. G k y if you see a g k y on any of your kids phones. Somebody that you'd better call that other kids, mama. You better bring the rain that kid is on your kid to go kill themselves. And you're kidding me lesson. Dr twinge, gene twinge the author of the book, I gen and professor of psychology at San Diego State university. Analyze data from the national survey of drug use and health, which is a nationally Representative survey that looked at drug alcohol use mental health of health related issues. And it looked at a survey from two hundred thousand adults or adolescents aged twelve to seventeen little babies from two thousand five to two thousand seventeen and almost four thousand adults from eighteen over the age of two thousand eight and two thousand seventeen. Now, they didn't ask about specific diagnoses for depression, or bipolar, etc. But that's experience depressive symptoms and the rate of individuals reporting symptoms, like major depression in the past twelve months jumped. By fifty two percent. Adolescence and sixty three percent and young adults. Seventy one percent increase in yoga dolts experiencing serious, psychological distress. They say the radio on the dental suicidal thoughts or other suicide related outcomes increases staggering forty seven percent from two thousand eight two thousand seventeen. One reason for that increase could be the digital media use. They think it has a bigger impact on teens and young adults than older adults. And you know, a big question we have also is. I mean, are we Bruin a generation of weenies? Our kids
"american psychological association" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"Will lower the price. So we don't get ripped off. And so that your market share doesn't go from seventy to fifty down to thirty which is probably where it is heading after that commercial that they have released their minute. Thirty eight commercial going after men now if you think the war on men and masculinity is over forget it. It is just starting perfect case in point the American psychological association, the a p a first time in their history released guidelines concerning men and boys saying that so-called traditional masculinity. Not only is harmful but also could lead to homophobia and sexual harassment. News released by the way, the main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity Demark by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance, and aggression is on the whole harmful it notes that research shows traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful Mets socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly. That's right. They would like boys to be taught to be little girls cry at everything. Go ahead be little whissy vehicle feminized emasculated. Boy, let's make sure that we have masculine and make sure those little Naji don't come out at a young age. Let's chop off. Right when they're boys. So they can become girls as they grow up the thirty six page report their their guidelines, go onto coin masculinity ideology, which stems from traditional masculinity claims that it harms boys and men really traditional. Masculinity. So all those boys and men that partook in World War Two that stormed. The beaches of Normandy. I guess that was harmful for them to be masculine for them to be competitive to once a dominate and be aggressive over the Nazis. They make it seem like competitiveness, and aggression is just the biggest evil in the world. I'm competitive, I'm aggressive when it comes to business when it comes to winning succeeding. I don't apologize for that. In fact, when it comes to negotiating, and I'll get to President Trump a little bit later on. It's one of the reasons why the Democrats can't stand them why? Because he's an alpha male. That's not going to roll over when Nancy Pelosi try to shaft on the state of the union heated roll over like, George H W Bush, or George W Bush or Mitt Romney would've or a John McCain would've instead he's like no you try to screw me. I'm gonna screw you back ten times harder. The Democrats can't stand President Trump because the President Trump is beating them at the Democrats own game. They don't know how to react to it. So this nonsense that we're seeing all we can't mention be aggressive should be competitive. This all boils down to these groups who believed that they have the divine right to obliterate, the traditional biology norms of men and boys and the male species. That they want to turn every boy and every man into a woman. It's exactly what they want. And it's gotten to the point where this is going to have a humongous backlash. People are tired of it men are targeted. Women are tired of it when they went after judge Cavanaugh women's said, wait a minute. You gotta to do this to my son. You're going to do this to my husband going back twenty thirty years ago for something that somebody makes up and says without any evidence. The reports continues the traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males, psychological development, constrain their behavior result in gender role, strain and gender role conflict and negatively influenced mental health and physical health and the masculine ideology as defined by the American psychological association. Is a particular constellation of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population, including anti feminity achievement is jewel of the appearance of weakness and adventure risk and violence. And they say that masculine boys may put their energy toward disruptive behavior such as homophobia, bullying and even sexual harassment rather than strive for academic. Excellent. What an absolute load of full of poppycock. In the Wall Street Journal. There's an interesting op Ed piece by Dr Erica commissar who is a psychotherapist. And she said she has seen an increase of depression in young men who feel emasculated in a society that is hostile to masculinity. No shiatsu. No kidding. We've seen this going on for forty years. The emasculation of the American male of boys, it is nonsense. It is ridiculous. Now, all of a sudden if a man wants to compete, if a man wants to be aggressive on getting a job if a man has big nets of steel, that's a huge problem for society. And what the APA has done defining traditional masculinity as a pathological state instead of a biological state. Only going to make things worse. They are demonizing masculinity. I say masculinity should be embraced just like femininity should be embraced. This goes back. Thousands and thousands of years going back to the caveman days. Okay. The man was the hunter gatherer woman took care of the cave. Now things have changed. We have women that are out in the workplace that are successful that are educated. I don't have a problem with that. What I have a problem with is giving one group or the other a leg up. If somebody says, well, we should give preference to women even if a man is is superior for the job is as a better resume is more suited for the job. I've got a huge problem with that. I do not like quotas best man or woman for the job period. And it has nothing to do with whether somebody's skin color their religion their their their their gender. I believe pick the best person for the job. I don't like quotas. It's ridiculous. You're just trying to say, okay. Well, we need to put somebody inferior in the job huge problem. And by the American psychological association. Demonizing masculinity instead of embracing the positive aspects of masculinity what they are doing is going to be more harmful. They are going to continue to make the emasculation of boys rampant more rampant that we're already seeing in this country and they're saying their clinicians. They're telling the American psychological association is telling their clinicians go and say evaluate masculinity as an evil that must be corrected. Instead of that says, hey, embrace masculinity. That is a good thing. Men and women are different men and women are biologically different. And when we see the old slogan. People say, oh, we have to stop boys from being boys wrong. That's the problem. We need boys to be boys. We need boys to engage in boy behavior. Roughhousing running around getting their energy out. It's like a puppy. I gotta run Barron. Who's nine months old my nine month old? Ninety seven bound German shepherd. I gotta run them. Gotta get that energy out loose. But instead what they're saying is, no, let's restrict boys. Nope. Let's stop them from rough housing playing tackle football. We cannot have this. And that in itself lay the problem because when boys are boys when they are boys. They will learn to be alpha males. They will learn to be masculine young adults and successful males instead of jumping up and down and a hissy fit every time. Something doesn't go their way. And the truth is masculine traits such as aggression, competitiveness, protective vigilance their positive. Those are a good thing. Here's the difference between boys and girls this is science now. This isn't meek making it up boys and men produce far more testosterone. That is associated biologically and behaviorally with increased aggression and competitiveness. They also produce more vessel pressing a hormone originating in the brain that makes men aggressively protective of their loved ones. Every woman, I know said, I want a man that's protective of me. And I don't care how successful they like what a man stands up for them. The same goes for feminine feminine traits. Women are nurturing their more emotionally sensitive women produce more oxytocin when the nurture their children than men and the hormone affects men and women differently. For example, oxytocin and women makes women more sensitive and empathetic while men become more playfully tactfully stimulating encouraging resilience these are normal differences. But today, we have the American psychological association. We have all these enemies of masculinity. Saying Ono masculinity is unhealthy we need to cut masculinity. Here's a perfect example of exactly what I am saying perfect example feminist groups at a number of colleges have a grand plan to obliterate obliterate the word man from their lexicon. Various groups in the US are opting to instead of spelling woman, W O A N or women w mea n because let's face it in women and women there's men and men right there. Opting dispel woman. W O M Y N or women W M X N to avoid spelling man or men. Other groups are calling women women affects women's groups at the university of Iowa California Davis, Texas State university university of Richmond university of North Carolina Chapel Hill some of the schools where the alternative spelling is used and this is what the university of Iowa's women's resource and action center coordinators Simone, Fernandez said women women, I don't know how else you pronounce. It w MSN removes the sequences of men or men EMMY, and from the term woman women that sheds light on the prejudice discriminate. Nation and institutional barriers women have faced but to also show that women are not a subcategory of men while providing active resistance to transphobia to include trans women, trans fam- and other gender. Non-conforming women. Have you ever heard such a load of garbage? I gotta tell you something. And I stated this status last week. I've stayed at numerous. I don't care what a man or woman sexual preferences. Now, if the female for women is a lesbian, do we sergeant Steve do we have that sound bite from Boston legal? I know we must have that somewhere. We we normally keep that as you get that prepared. Let me just say this. I do not care what a woman or man sexual preferences. It's not my business. I don't care if it makes you happy. Go ahead.

Doctor in Silver Spring. Try me again, I I really wanna talk to you more. See what we need is psychologists simply need to rebel. In your name. Your your profession has been poisoned. I have no respect for the American psychological association. I have respect for some psychologists. Like, the teachers unions that just more leftism to poison our society. That's all it is. That's all of this. The cancerous activism has taken over toxic masculinity. This is what is really the problem in America, boys.

The opinions of everyone who came in contact with the evidence, not political sloganeering, not knock people chanting. It was evidence about abortion abortion, really is the change people's minds.

Was the fact that here's what a good legal abortion looks like and they had the good legal abortionist played fantastic by Janine Turner, describe what a good legal abortion looked like. And we we have spoken. Two members of the jury who sat through the trial. And so that that testimony with the most shocking thing they heard not not what they heard the dossier.

Are you a citizen this question, by the way was routinely asked me for the nineteen sixties aside from conducting the census every ten years, the census bureau also conducts the American community survey and they've often asked about citizenship on that survey. No problem, but Democrats are afraid that if the citizenship question is asked in the twenty twenty cents is illegal aliens won't participate and Democrats big blue cities suffered a huge loss of federal funding and political representation, especially in sanctuary cities, where Democrats welcome illegal aliens with open arms. The left is terrified that if he'll legal aliens. Aren't counted in the census democrat power will shrink.

"We're gonna hear the SF live show. But in a first of its kind report, the American psychological association. Reported on masculinity and talked about traditional masculinity as including quote, emotional, stoicism, homophobia, not showing vulnerability, self reliance and competitiveness. So essentially, the American psychological association for the first time talked about talk toxic masculinity and raising children with quote, constricted. Notions of masculinity, emphasizing aggression, homophobia, misogyny, and that may influence boys to direct a great deal of their energy into disruptive such bullying homosexual taunting and sexual harassment rather than healthy academic and extracurricular activities, so they essentially said this shit starts young this prison, and this definition of gender. And specifically with this toxic MAC masculinity thing raises, people it doesn't raise lions it raises drunk fuck and raccoons do you know what I mean? Like, it just raises like a bullied everyone's garbage. Right. Did you ever see the mask? We live in. No. That's that's Gavin Newsom his wife did that documentary and she's a documentarian on a road. Right. But she is apparently about that. Okay. It's about toxic masculinity with young boys. And how it how it affects their life. And by the way, the all the fucking unraveling that you have to do it as an adult when you realize that that's the that's the fucking cage you've been living in. Yeah. It's unfair. It's unfair on so many levels. I mean, I it's hard to decompress from that. Should I don't think anything's harder than being vulnerable? But also nothing is more rewarding nothing, by the way. I told you this. I think did I tell you that I might I told my dad would toxic masculinity and that and then he ended up a surgery, and then when I can't when he came out of surgery, he was like I want you to read me articles about toxic masculinity. So I did. And he understood that he understood how he got in this situation that he's in because I had to I took the time. And my dad is like open to that stuff. If you take the time, he's not like, that's key. Oh, please. I wouldn't even fucking broach. The issue if I didn't think he was able to. Like, can you know understand the contract of it? But I don't know how I don't know how many people's day. I mean, I've tried a brochure with my grandpa, he sorts of sort of gets it.

"The Genesis communications network for making the show happen. Daniel is working the dials and big thanks for tuning in. We really do predate. It don't forget to follow us on Twitter at Dr Dalia in on Facebook, the doctor Dolly shell. All right. So there's a term you guys are going to be seeing thrown out there. Call traditional masculinity. And I guess the American psychological association says it is harmful. This whole idea of guys being guys masculine macho. They say it could be harmful and could lead to sexual harassment. According to Fox News. They say this is the for the first time in its history, the American psychological association police guidelines concerning men and boys saying that so called traditional masculinity. Not only as harmful. But could lead to homophobia and sexual harassment. They say the main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance, and aggression is on the whole harmful. Now, this is a news release by the APA, the American psychological association. They said notes up research shows, quote, traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that's socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly. This is apparently a thirty six page document. And so they coined this masculinity ideology, which stems from traditional masculinity, which I guess they say can our boys and men because it limits their development constrains their behavior results in a gender rule, strain and agenda role conflict and negatively influenced mental health and physical health. And we'll talk about this in a second. So they defined this masculinity as a particular constellation of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population including anti feminity achievement as a skill. Oh, that's a big word for me of the appearance of weakness and adventure risk and violence. The research goes on to suggest a masculine voice may put their energy towards disruptive behaviors such as homophobia, bullying even sexual harassment rather than strive for academic excellence. We'll talk about that in a second. So they say though, men benefit from patriarchy. They are also impinged upon by patriarchy. And that's really interesting that was from Dr Levant, a professor emeritus of psychology at the university of Akron and co editor of the volume the psychology of men and masculinity is, you know, a lot of people have been traumatized by their dads. And their dads expectations of them. They say the new paper vises clinicians, how to adjust the problems of their own bias when treaty boys and men and urges to address how power privilege and sexism work, both by conferring benefits to men and by trapping them in narrow roles. Alright. So last our guy is not supposed to be the guys that. We kind of I guess we're trained. And shall we say? Ingrained with the idea of you know, the boy play football. You know and the girls play with dolls. I mean, are we already in society at the point where we're going to now redo toy stores? And redo clothing. I mean, we need to talk about there's now I want to look up something I wanna look up the number of the homosexual population in the US because I was taught in medical school that one in eight people were considered LGBT. A Gallup poll conducted that four point five percents of adult Americans identified. So that's lower much lower than what I had learned. I also learned that one in six had experimented. Now. The reason why bring that up is. We are changing a lot of laws and ways we do bathrooms and our vernacular at appropriately. So because the LGBT community has been has been discriminated against for so long. But when we look at four point five percent of our population. There's been a lot of debate on we change English to not have he she anymore. In our English. I mean, we hear about this in college all the time students turn in papers. They get in trouble because they used he or she the ocean is right the ship and the ocean are considered. She yet other things are considered masculine. And so, you know, do we go gender neutral on everything? And that's going to be debated for a while. But we're already seeing hospitals decide to remove the gender on bursar tickets and just put gender ex. Now, I get that. Let the child decide what gender they want to be. I get that. But as a doctor, I lied to know if the child has testicles or ovaries. Somebody and suggested should we put x x x y. On the. On the versus. Be politically, correct. But if there's a child, you know, I don't wanna keep having to look at their genitals. I think that could be also a little disturbing when they come in as a patient, and you know, I have to always have the naked to determine if I need to check for undescended testicles or other tissues. And usually we don't for the ones that we're good. And so these are little things that that we have to think about as we progress to being a more, you know, more open and understanding society, but this idea of masculinity. Isn't harmful is masculinity. Promoting sexual harassment sexual assault. I don't know. You know, we are animals in society. It doesn't matter if we women dress up and spanks and high heels and men have shirt and a tie. We are all animals to the core. And I think you could drive any of us. Whether it's starvation or in passion, or in a fight to REVEAL OUR animalistic tendencies rambles. Yeah, we're human and there's laws and all that. I think we do a very good job controlling ourselves. We don't have sex at work. We don't eat other people's food. I mean, you know, we we we know how to behave but put us in a situation where we don't care about societal norms. We started looking like animals I've seen people growl. I've seen people scratch. I've seen people I've seen people rape. I mean, you know, and I believe what ends up happening is these crimes committed depending on how much you could control those inner instincts. So. Getting to is while we do need to progress to avoid discrimination, and bullying and all that. We may run into the problem where if you have some boys out there and those boys they wanna play football. They want to get into the mud. They wanna wrestle. They wanna fight. And you keep them sitting at a tension. I mean are they going to blow like a pressure cooker? Do kids need to fight. I don't want them to fight with others. I don't want them to fight at school, but brothers and sisters. They fight all the time. Siblings. Fight all the time. They called sibling rivalry. But that's how kids get prepared for the outside world like Fossa move faster taking the line the little Simba out there. Okay. Dads have to be kind of stern to train these kids. Now, do they have to push ideals like well, you need big biceps or you need big packs. No, maybe not. But parents moms and dads needs. Teach your kids how to compete in this world. And a good parent will identify what strengths the child has and what weaknesses needs to be improved on. And any of us, whether we're female male gay straight have strings that will allow us to compete. Right in the food chain. So I get how it's going to help to not have this. Arnold schwarzenegger. Physique being thrown down your child's throat. I get that. But on the other hand, if you have a child whose strength is Braun. Are you allowed to, cultivate, that if you have a child who strengths is literary or music or dance or math. Are we allowed to cultivate that? And encourage it one eight seven. We don't go away.

"The American psychological association is just like the American Bar Association dominated by libs and liberalism. I've told you this. I think before, but when they break down by specialty the most conservative versus the most liberal MD's. The most conservative MD's are surgeons, in fact, surgeons tend to be the most conservative the most liberal medical practitioners with MD's out. There are overwhelmingly psychiatrists psychiatrist shrinks are a bunch of commies not all of them a lot of them and the American psychological association is left leaning to say the least. But this report that I saw just came out today in there. January edition here. So this is sort of a trade publication for the, but the EPA is if you're in the psychological treatment at analysis field. I guess it's kind of a big deal. The APA has released its guidelines for the first time ever to help psychologists work with men and boys. This is from the report quote at first blush. This may seem unnecessary for decades cycle psychology focused on men as of twenty eighteen ninety five percent of chief operating officers of fortune five hundred companies were men, according to a two thousand seventeen analysis in sixteen of the top companies eighty percent of all high rankings executives were mail. Meanwhile, knee one hundred fifteenth congress which began in two thousand seventeen eighty one percent of congressman more male. But something is amiss. For men.

They're the most Demer most at risk demographic group when it comes to violent crime. There are three point five times more likely than women to die by suicide and life expectancy is four point nine years shorter. This piece has the headline research finds that traditional masculinity is on the whole harmful. That's right. My friends toxic masculinity a term popularized by progressive left wing activists for ultra feminists who really have a deep hostility to men. That term of toxic masculinity has now transitions to a pardon the phrase transitioned into. Official medical guidance. We are being told now that men being main is in fact, a bad thing that men who take the approach here. I can even tell you what the the traits are you might be saying well buck, how do they define masculinity? Do they define masculinity as you know, violence, and rape, culture and bad things like that. Well, no, they divine tradition. They define I remember. This is a medical a national medical journal. That's putting out guides for all psychologists now to deal with men and boys to essentially, tell them where to find ways to work with them. Such that they will not. Fi be more, hyper masculine or more. Traditionally masculine the way they define masculinity is by is through quote, stoicism, competitiveness, dominance, and aggression. Which this the APA research finds is on the whole harmful. And researchers led by a peach at Boston College found the more men conform to masculine norms. The more likely they were to consider as normal risky behaviors such as heavy drinking using tobacco and avoiding vegetables. That's actually in this John. Did you know that if you're a hyper masculine you might avoid vegetables?

Well, from what I hear Christmas supposed to be the most wonderful time. That's right. But according to a new survey by the American psychological association, they found that it's a very stressful time specifically for women more so than men so what they say is that on average it's gotten way better over the years, but women still do two times as much housework and childcare is men in their living in a family situation where there's a man and a woman living together. And then these people are also working outside of the home. So they call the domestic work the second shift and now they're calling the holiday work, the third shift. Which means you have a full-time job, and you're doing all of us domestic stuff, and then you feel this obligation to bake holiday treats to be the one who buys a lot of the gifts to do the rapping to decorate the house to send out Christmas cards, and all these things are things you don't actually have to deal. But in the article, it said that women feel really obligated to. But part of that is because they enjoy it because it said, according to Leslie, Bella, author of the Christmas, imperative leisure, family and women's work. She said women feel compelled to create rituals and follow tradition to 'specially around Christmas because of a need for what she calls family making. And so people say that they feel this push kind of like if you go on Pinterest or you're on social media, and everyone's like, creating these beautiful Christmas scenes that you're like I have to do this to or Christmas is not going to be that great in our family. It was just gonna ask you that. Because I have several friends on Instagram or Facebook where their this is their thing and they make their house. Look absolutely stunning.

Make you feel like, oh, I need to go get decorations in ninety two spruce up the hell, you're asking the wrong person. Because I don't celebrate Christmas tree or anything. Yeah. Still bad example asked on. But you know, what? I mean that happens like with a lot of stuff on social media where you see people doing things like better than you are allegedly in quotes, they're having more fun, and blah, blah, blah. But when it comes to material things the way I rationalize it is they're spending way more money than I would ever want to spend. When you see people in their home is all decked out usually that costs a lot of money, and I'm too cheap for that. So I'm like, okay, I'm not willing to spend that. So I'm willing to have what I have hit outlook I committed to my porch. And so we did our we did our porch over the weekend.

"What's happening? It's going down apparently Hispanics are making more money than ever before. Yes. Which proves that Donald Trump's evil plan to keep Hispanics down and blacks down anybody. It's not white down is really working. Right. I mean, it's there. It's right. It's like it's like they're three things. I think you need to know that will never get talked about because the media sucks except for me. Of course. Which is why you listen the only thing that I suck about his Zerorez truck. It's such the most such the best dirt grime gross the the dog pee all day. Anyway. So this is really incredible stuff. So yesterday, we find out over and over and over and over and over sixty five women have great things to say about Cavanaugh one chicks like listen. Never told anybody this but thirty six years ago. Dude jumped on me was drunk on the bed, and the one guy that witnessed it that got him off of me says it never happened. So you should believe that one chick. That's exactly what needs to happen. Yep. Yep. Yep. Yep. Yep. You heard the news, right? You're David Garcia in our newscast democratic candidate for governor. This guy's a nut. He says at Doug Ducey has to withdraw the the his. His thumbs up his approval his support for bread cavenaugh based on an accusation. Don't you love and now in America, if you get accused of something you are guilty. You of course, it's not that he's guilty of anything except for being conservative Republican. That's the only thing he's guilty of. That's it nothing else. So this is this is really incredible stuff. So Kavanagh's accuser Christine Ford was invited. All right. You know, what you made these crazy accusations. Maybe they're true. Maybe they're not we all know, they're not true. Maybe they're not come on and testify answer some questions. Let's figure this out. And Fox News. This is just coming out is told Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee reached out to her lawyers inviting her Monday to an open hearing to discuss this allegation. And there is no response. Now, maybe there will be a response that aides think about this. It's already nine sixteen in the morning eastern time. Her lawyer was all over the television yesterday on every network. There was I think except for FOX everywhere, lawyers everywhere. Her lawyers in DC who's paying for her lawyer, by the way, thinks she's paying for a lawyer pro Bono now they like their money. They just don't like you having your money. Maybe he's getting paid and fame. Now, it's a lady, and no she's part of the resistance. She has said she is. So who deep down is paying is it is it Tom Steyer is George sore. Who knows who knows whatever. So she has yet to save. She's going to be there in that interesting. Now, she is so worried she says their civic duty to come forward, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, what's going on. Then we find out yesterday that she never wanted to come forward. So she says yet she hired a lawyer didn't interview with the Washington Post decided to take a polygraph tests. All that stuff. I never wanted this to come out. But I got a lawyer did all this stuff. Very believable. Isn't it very believable? Now, there's something else that I saw that is very interesting townhall dot com. Guy named Scott Moorefield wrote a piece in intrigued me, here's why the revelation of judge Kavanagh's accuser was inevitable. And why still means nothing? Now, if you remember thirty six years ago is a nineteen eighty two I was five thousand nine hundred eighty two. Ryan was thirty eight thousand nine hundred just kidding. So. Stand. You still don't. So she claims she something happened her back in nineteen eighty two. And she finally remembered it in two thousand twelve thirty years later, and that's when she was in couples therapy. She didn't tell anybody this situation happened. She was fifteen she says at the time and or about fifteen and this thing happened at a house. She can't remember where a house was. She is a lot you. Remember, what's interesting, also before we get to the story about the psycho analysis of this is that she is she she claims this happened. But you never mentioned Brett Kavanagh's name to the psychologist at the couple's therapy. She did Kavanagh's like, you know, what I I don't believe I was ever at that party. Like, maybe she hasn't been mixed up with somebody else. Oh. Oh. So she never told her parents. She never told a friend. She never told anybody that this alleged incident actually happened. Right. Never never done any of that. Apparently in another therapy session in two thousand thirteen she described a rape attempt in her late teens except remember she was about she was fifteen is that late teens. That's pretty middle teams right here. Okay. So okay. You have that you have that. She claims that she escaped and locked herself in a bathroom and a drunk then seventeen year old I guess bread cabinet on his classmate. Went down the stairs hitting the walls and for five or ten minutes. She left the bathroom through living room out the door. She doesn't recall she made it home. She didn't tell her parents. She wanted to get trouble to party with alcohol. She'd say anything which is eight when she was eighteen when she was twenty five nothing nothing for thirty years. All right. So you have all this. So you sit back and say she supposedly passed a polygraph test. But it says here if those can be trusted we know that she believes the story. But what does she believe was it a an attempted rape? Was it a grope? I misplaced grope a clumsy unwanted kiss a drunk and make out session led to nothing is thirty six years ago. See sit back and say h psychotherapy this is what she went through. Do. You know, what psychotherapy is I was curious about it. I was curious about it. Psychotherapy says here in his townhall dot com. These things become complicated. When you enter the murky controversial world of psychotherapy where dreams and imagination can become reality. At least in one's own mind. A world where this lady Christine forty is apparently neck deep for was apparently only after going through psychotherapy years later that she came to understand the incident as a trauma with a lasting impact on her life. It had no impact on her life from nineteen eighty two to two thousand eleven two thousand twelve is when it happened. So let's look at this. Okay. This is something to consider to quote, the American psychological association. There is little or no empirical support for the concept of repressed or dissociated memories of sexual abuse. What? That was written by psychology. Today's Tim O eirne field in two thousand fifteen and a piece about the repression of childhood memories. She wrote false memories are well documented in legal history. We are vulnerable to what psychologists call suggestion. And can innocently construct false or pseudo memories of events that never occurred. If if if they are encouraged by someone we trust one disturbing two thousand seven study found that when people were called sexual abuse in childhood during therapy era, count was less likely to be corroborated by other evidence. Then when the memories came without help, sadly well-meaning therapists have done their patients harm. So the point is that I do do you get it? She may have made this up in her mind with the pushing of that therapist. The American psychological association says there's little or no empirical support for the concept of repressed associated memories of sex-abuse. And again when people were called sex abuse in childhood during therapy their account was less likely to be cooperated by other evidence. Then when memories came without the help. So this therapist apparently pulled something out of her. And they say that that's less likely to be cooperated as if somebody were recalled it on their own. So we don't know really anything about this. Shouldn't get more play. You know? What's funny? The media wants to call Trump, mentally deranged, unfit. He's not all there bubble blending. They literally have psychologists on remember when they were trying to say that he was crazy removed. They had they had psychologists who were really committing. I mean ethics violations moral violations by by going on national TV to diagnose someone that wasn't even their patient. Notice. You don't have anybody in the media asking any psychologist today about this whole situation that I just read you what it means how this could have happened. It's not the narrative they want six twenty three. I have much more on this. We'll even here from the two of the ladies two of the sixty five they came forward. These to happen actually date Brad Kavanagh? What's disturbing is? They're both named Maura apparently likes chicken anymore. I don't I don't know. What is current? Wife's name is Ronny the commercial with the guy had a pit bull. And she's wife's like you've had four. Pit bulls all named Steve girlfriends all name Mora. So anyway. That's the latest when it comes to this whole situation about oh, Ashley he married. An Ashley good for him. Not more. We'll buy some soundbites coming back more. No, more, no more. I've had enough of more. I tried to it didn't work, but he went to Baltimore. And he love all there. Yeah. Just like oh sorry. I love it. I love it. All right. We're going to continue because we have to and we will. You know, I got one of my favorite stories of the day. Do you remember we we talked about it briefly last week? You were not here. Ryan, right. You're not here. Harrison ford. Went to the global action climate summit in San Francisco. Right goes there. And he starts lecturing people about you can elect people that don't believe in science, and he gets all angry, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And I'm like, you know, he flies planes. He's telling people to not do a carbon footprint. He literally is a pilot enjoys flying planes. He Klay crash field. Well, I have more information you're gonna love, you know, who else attended this. And how they got there to the global action climate summit. That's it's like my favorite story. We've all kinds of stuff to get you don't go anywhere canes team, seven ninety two sides.
