How Do Counselors Inspire to Aspire: An Interview with Annie Shaw

Inspire_Counseling_Logo_SMALL

The reason we started Mental Health News Radio was to give those serving behavioral health a voice. We are the listeners. We are also caregivers. We wanted a platform where your voices could be heard. Where an audience of your peers can listen to your stories. Stories about what inspired you to become a therapist, open your own practice, or work in a community mental health center, what your specialties are, what tools and services you use to maintain your clinical records, and how you take care of yourself.

There is no doubt you will enjoy this next show. Our entire team was inspired just listening to our guest Annie Shaw. She is a perfect example of why we love hosting Mental Health News Radio.

Behavioral health EHR Vendors

Our guest today is Doug Edwards, Vice President and Managing Director of Vendome Healthcare Media’s Behavioral Healthcare division. Anyone who’s anyone in Behavioral Healthcare knows who Doug is and the publications he manages (Behavioral Healthcare and Addiction Professional Magazines). Because Doug has his pulse on our favorite healthcare segment, we asked him to share some secrets, ideas, what’s trending, and where EHR vendors are M.I.A. in the marketplace. While we cover the list of questions we reference below, Doug went far beyond this list. You’ll just have to tune in and take notes!

The Emotionally Destructive Marriage: An Interview with Author, Counselor, and Speaker Leslie Vernick

Emotional-Destructive-Marriage

You can’t put it into words, but something is happening to you. Your stomach churns, your heart aches, and the tension in your marriage is making you feel weary and a little crazy. The constant criticism, disrespect, cruelty, deceit, and gross indifference are eroding your confidence and breaking your spirit and you don’t know who to talk to or where to turn.

Today our guest on Mental Health News Radio is Leslie Vernick, a clinical social worker, relationship coach, speaker and author. Her best-selling book The Emotionally Destructive Marriage is what we take a deep dive into today. If you’re feeling voiceless, hopeless, or powerless in your marriage, Leslie will show you a path forward, helping you find your voice and reclaim your hope.  

Many of our listeners are counselors. When we reached out to our audience announcing Leslie as a guest the response was overwhelming. We are certainly honored to have her as our guest and to share her invaluable wisdom with our listeners.

We asked Leslie to share with the questions that are most often asked of her. Get ready to take notes because we cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. 

 Enjoy the show!

Christine Louis de Canonville: What is No Contact with a Narcissistic Abuser?

ChristineCanonville_primary_photo-v2 BOOK COVEROur most requested guest returns to discuss the term NO CONTACT in relation to Narcissistic Abuse. Author and therapist Christine Louis de Canonville is back to discuss No Contact and Low Contact with Cluster B personality types.

Christine’s shows are downloaded well into the thousands every month and she’s quickly become the go-to expert when it comes to educating anyone working in and with the field of behavioral health about the subject of narcissistic personality disorder. Before we air any show we take the temperature of our listeners to find out which questions come up repeatedly. Lately we’ve been inundated with requests around what it means to extricate yourself from a toxic relationship and how to do this safely (emotionally and physically). Sometimes it does involve some “trickery” on your part. Please enjoy our latest and, again, be prepared to take notes. Christine’s advice around this topic is invaluable.

The Future of TechnologyAdvice and Healthcare IT with Drew Settles

technologyadvice-email-logoPart of our work as consultants in Behavioral and Women’s Healthcare is to help our clients find the best EHR solutions for their organizations. We stand on a pretty tall soapbox and offer complimentary tools to help people through the maze that can certainly feel harrowing. TechnologyAdvice is a fresh face out in the marketplace offering excellent advice and services to healthcare providers and agencies but also to the EHR vendors we care about. It has been our distinct pleasure to introduce several Behavioral Healthcare vendors to TechnologyAdvice so that providers looking for help finding the right tools have plenty of options. 

the-future-of-mental-and-behavioral-healthcare-01We enjoyed being invited on their Expert Interview Series discussing buyouts and sub specialties within the EHR market.  During our pre-interview calls we were introduced to Charles “Drew” Settles who fast became one of our favorite guests. We refer to him as “The Brain” and certainly hope he’ll join us as a series regular. No topic was off the table. We simply had to fit in as much invaluable information to a thirty minute segment as possible (we still went over time but we promise it’s worth a listen – be prepared to take notes).  We covered what TechnologyAdvice has to over software vendors. We encourage all Behavioral Health EHR vendors to sign up with their services so consumers aren’t limited in their choices.
