Dr. Judith Orloff joins us on Mental Health News Radio. Her new book The Power of Surrender and her upcoming workshop in Big Sur, Ca: Surrender to the Power of Your Intuition were on our minds. As our guests know, each show is a journey. Dr. Orloff rolled with it because that is who she is and we got into the topic on the minds of all of our listeners: Empaths.
Join us on the empath super highway with Dr. Judith Orloff.
Many of our guests have mentioned Robert Weiss. His books are utilized in treatment by clinicians all over the globe. We thought it was time to go straight to the expert on addiction. Robert graciously accepted our invitation and we’ll enjoy hearing him speak at the National Conference on Addiction Disorders in August 2016.
Today we talk about sex addiction. Of course – we go off topic because that’s what we do on Mental Health News Radio. Each show is a journey and Robert graciously jumped on the train with us!

Dr. Corey Waller joins us for a discussion about the consequences of legalizing marijuana from the media room at National Council for Behavioral Health’s annual conference. Dr. Waller is a multi-session presenter and we are so glad he could take some time out during the conference for some sound bites about his work.

Cindy Schwartz joins us live from the annual conference for The National Council for Behavioral Health. We’re in the media room to discuss her presentation, Making Jail the Last Resort.
Extensive research goes on here at Mental Health News Radio. We are consistently on the lookout for voices of advocacy and education around issues that have a strangle hold on mental health. Shadia Duske’s article Toxic Culture 101: Understanding the Sexualization of Women made it’s way to our office and we reached out to the author to see if she’d be willing to discuss this topic further. Thankfully Shadia made herself available and we were pleasantly surprised to learn about her extensive work as a behavioral health practitioner, business owner, and her research in women’s studies.
The objectification and sexualization of women is actually escalating in our culture. The negative impact this increase is having on women and men is driving us into a state of mental illness. Join Shadia and Kristin as they discuss what is happening, what we can do to lesson the impact, and quite possibly be models for positive change.
