Whether through a telescope, microscope, or stethoscope, we have been trying to understand ourselves and others for as long as any of us can remember or the history books have recorded. In the past century and a half there has been a massive collection of information from numerous sources, comprising what we now refer to as psychology. Yet, even though we have so much information, the general awareness or use of this technology is very limited. Or worse yet, we think we “know” more than we really do. Michael McClendon, PsyD (an honest to goodness shrink) plays host to topical experts who will help us dig into the data and make sense of the rich knowledge base that does exist, and how we can put that information to use. Moreover, Michael has promised to leave the jargon in the classroom and talk about these topics in a way that makes sense and doesn’t require a special glossary of terms.

Somatic Perspectives on Psychotherapy is about psychotherapy with a focus on embodied experience. Our primary emphasis is on clinical approaches, with an experiential feel for each clinician’s perspective. An underlying goal is to explore the convergence between clinical practice and the emerging models of the human mind from the fields of neuroscience, evolutionary psychology and embodied cognition. The podcast is a series of half-hour conversations, mostly with clinicians, occasionally featuring leading thinkers in related fields. Stimulating ideas are discussed, as well as clinical examples. The style of the conversations is reflective, slowing down and deepening the process.

Is laughter purely a physiological response, or is it a social and culturally mediated means of communication?

Ronald Chase View on Amazon In his book, Schizophrenia: A Brother Finds Answers in Biological Science (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2013), biologist Ronald Chase explores the frequently misunderstood condition through an engaging combination of scientific exploration and personal memoir. In recounting the life of his older brother, Jim, who was a bright young graduate student at UCLA when his episodes began to intensify, Chase tells the story of how the treatment of schizophrenia has changed since the 1950s, connecting events in his own life to research on the causation and treatment of schizophrenia. He grapples with difficult questions about why the condition persists from an evolutionary perspective, and the stigma associated with it. Chase takes a hard line on the physical nature of schizophrenia; only by accepting it as a disorder of the biological brain, rather than the moral mind, can we begin to find the right, albeit complex answers and accommodate those who suffer from ...

George Makari View on Amazon In his new book Soul Machine: The Invention of the Modern Mind (Norton, 2014), the psychoanalyst and innovative historian, George Makari speaks to us about the dramatic history of the invention of the concept of the mind. Beginning at the origins of modernity, Makari takes the reader on a wild ride across the European continent in a search for answers about the nature of human inner life. Hardly a sedate academic debate, the history of the mind is a history soaked in blood. Heretical ideas challenged religious and political authority, toppled governments and fomented revolution. In the shift from an ethereal, God-given soul to a material, thinking mind, humanity found itself freed from the authoritarian rule of the church and the need for a monarch; however, with this newfound freedom to reason and self-govern, man needed to contend with the limits of reason, with unbridled passions, and with madness. Makari has written a history of ideas with powerful ...
