It’s the last episode of the month and we’re just talking After Hours about things we Shrinks think about after hours. Today’s topic is bias in mental health treatment. We’ve talked about bias in diagnosis and this is related because if the initial way of looking at a person or their struggles is biased, the whole course of treatment can be biased as well. Have a listen.
The one in which we speak with Noah Adams about his advocacy and research related to people who are both transgender and autistic, like him. Noah is a PhD student at the University of Toronto and, along with coauthor Bridget Liang, wrote a book based on interviews entitled, Trans and Autistic: Stories from Life at the Intersection (Jessica Kingsley, July 2020).
The one in which we discuss the brave and creative network of people and places that made freedom possible for thousands of enslaved people from the Southern U.S. How much do you know about the Underground Railroad? (Hint: we’re not talking about the subway or the metro).
The one in which we discuss religious freedom – they way it’s supposed to be and whether or not we actually have it. Where is the separation between church and state?
It’s the last Tuesday of the month! We’re kicking back, After Hours, to discuss how implicit bias and diagnoses can affect the course of therapy along with ongoing mental health treatment and outcomes.
The one in which we talk about taking over the world. Specifically, how the United States has been a part of the competition to own as much of the world as possible, and what that looks like.
The one in which we talk about the irrational fear and hatred of Muslim people and the religion of Islam.
The one in which we explore what Labor Day is all about.
It’s the last Tuesday of the month which means it’s time for Shrinks After Hours! That’s us Shrinks (Julie Mayer and Cindy Ariel), chatting After Hours about things we believe are important to chat about. In this After Hours episode we’re chatting about what re-imagined community safety could look like. Join us as we re-think and re-imagine policing and public safety.
The one in which we learn about the great sacrifices Black people have made fighting in all major wars for the United States, and the thanks they got for it.
