How can we learn to tell the truth as we know it and do this with love? Join Dr. Paul Meier, Kristin Walker, and Melanie Vann as they discuss speaking the truth in love.

SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
WHENEVER TWO PEOPLE MEET THERE ARE ACTUALLY SIX PEOPLE PRESENT–THE TWO AS THEY SEE THEMSELVES, THE TWO AS THEY SEE EACH OTHER, AND THE TWO AS THEY REALLY ARE, AND ALL SIX ARE DIFFERENT. WHO WE REALLY ARE DEEP DOWN INSIDE IS A MYSTERY EVEN TO US, SO FINDING OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT OURSELVES OR OUR LOVED ONES IS A LIFELONG PROCESS
WHO DO YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH TO AND WHEN IS IT BEST TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT?
TO OTHERS–WHAT WOULD JESUS DO OR SAY TO THAT PARTICULAR “OTHER” UNDER THE SAME CIRCUMSTANCES?
HOW MANY PEOPLE TODAY HAVE EVEN ONE CLOSE FRIEND THEY CAN TELL ALL THEIR SECRETS TO?
BEING CAREFUL WHO YOU SHARE THE TRUTH WITH
TO OURSELVES
PROMISING TO BE OUR OWN BEST FRIEND
WHAT WOULD DO OR SAY TO OUR BEST FRIEND UNDER THE SAME CIRCUMSTANCES?

What on earth were we going to name this show? We covered so many topics from post traumatic stress disorder to the Parkland High School shooting that happened one year from the date this show is airing – Valentine’s Day. We also talked about how healing from trauma of any kind is a unique journey for every person. In a society with an attention span of about 30 seconds, traumatic events are forgotten quickly by the public but NOT the people who were there.

Join our host Kristin Sunanta Walker and Amy O’Neill for an uplifting and insightful discussion.

After being thrust into the role of Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor, Amy C. O’Neill has turned her crisis and recovery into her cause. In her new chosen role as Resilience Expert and Motivational Speaker, Amy shares her life lesson of rebounding with individuals in order to help them learn how to go through and overcome their own personal trauma; and with professional responders who deal with expected and unexpected trauma on the job; as well as with groups from around the world so that they may learn to continue in the aftermath of community trauma and adversity.

Having built a well-respected career in mental health counseling over almost three decades, Amy has intense breadth and depth of experience in both institutional and private practice. In addition to her dedication to helping others, she prides herself on being a life long learner and athlete. A former D-1 NCAA lacrosse player who went on to methodically train and successfully complete three Ironman Triathlons, and the prestigious Boston Marathon five times, Amy knows how mental and physical focus can lead to success. As a wife, mother, daughter and sister Amy has strong family ties that are important to her life story as well. She also works with the THE NATIONAL MASS VIOLENCE AND VICTIMIZATION RESOURCE CENTER helping survivors of mass violence use their voice during their healing process.

Mental Health Perspectives with Dr. John Huber & Kristin Walker hosted by Ryan McCormick.

Poor envy. It has such a bad reputation.

Who among us enjoys looking miserable, mediocre, hostile — and petty, just because we see someone who has something that we desire?

Lately, envy is in the air, as our country struggles with how to react to the increasing concentration of wealth in a smaller percentage of the population.

In a recent opinion piece, Arthur Brooks, President of the American Enterprise Institute, offers a provocative take on envy’s role in our reactions.

His main points are that:

1. envy makes us unhappy and unhealthy;

2. it arises from believing that another’s advantage is unfair and beyond our control to change;

3. sadly for us, it is an increasingly prevalent reaction.

Cultural traditions and some empirical work support Brooks’ first point about the ill effects of envy on well being. But research by Dutch psychologists Niels van de Ven and others confirm a very important distinction between two types of envy: benign and malicious. They show that benign envy is not fun but it leads to a healthy, “moving-up motivation” while malicious envy is hostile and leads to an unhealthy“pulling-down motivation.” It is only the latter type that Brooks likely has in mind.

Why are millennials experts about the internet and social media? Because they are the ONLY generation that has a before and after experience at that crucial developmental age. Generation X and Baby Boomers on up – the internet and social media hit us as adults. Generation Z? They came out of the womb with a Smartphone in their hands. Researchers have only one generation to study about the social, developmental, and mental health impact that the internet and social media has on a generation that knew life at such young ages before and after.

Why is this important?

Their experiences with online bullying, trolling, harassment, and privacy hit them in a way that no other generation can understand. Older generations are shocked at the amount of online emotional terrorism. Generation Z is at the beginning stages of learning how to navigate it. Only Millennials know how that negative side of the internet has impacted the age group that spearheaded the online experience.

Tune in to K.C. and our host Kristin Walker as they discuss one millennial’s perspective.

How aware are we of the fallout from the freedom we enjoy using the internet and social media? Can you fathom a parent of one of the Sandy hook shooting victims being trolled online for years after the event took place? Or one of the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing being harassed online from the moment she began treatment for brain injuries as a result of the incident?

Join our host Kristin Sunanta Walker and survivor Lynn Julian Crisci as they talk about her experience with internet harassment, cyber stalking, and trolling. What continues as she bravely speaks about her experience to help those also being targeted online.
