Setting Our Kids Up for Life Success — Social and Emotional Learning in Our Classrooms: Interview with Dr. Julian Dooley | Episode 74

What is self-awareness mindfulness?

“The awareness that emerges through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment.” ~Jon Kabat-Zinn

Self-awareness, of our own emotional states is just one of the key tenets in collaborative social and emotional learning being taught in our schools. As a foundation for developing emotional intelligence and resilience, this type of education helps inoculate our youth against the many challenges they face. In this interview, I speak with Dr. Julian Dooley, an international expert on school-based best practices in social and emotional learning including:

NEW to MHNR Network: The Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross Show – Helping Your Relationship with Food, Your Body, and Your Past


Finding Peace with Food and Your Body by Learning How Past Trauma Makes an Impact, with Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross.

“Eating disorders impact so many, taking years from their lives and also while alive, occupying so much of their time and energy. I feel that eating disorders are used as a solution to the problem of unhealed trauma, abuse or neglect. When in fact, food can’t fix trauma, abuse, or neglect.“ – Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross

Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross is new to MHNR Network with her podcast, “The Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross Show,” which focuses on binge eating, food addiction, emotional eating, and the relationship to unresolved trauma. Food addiction is unique in that it requires sufferers to learn how to maintain a healthy relationship with their ‘drug’ of choice, food. An alcoholic or drug addict is able to try to avoid their drug of choice.  Food Addiction is more complicated than that. Those that suffer with unhealthy food relationships understand exactly how difficult this can be.

Dr. Coker Ross brings with her vast knowledge working with those suffering from addictions and eating disorders to the public with her podcast. Her goal is to help educate listeners about the in’s and out’s of binge eating disorder, food addiction, and emotional eating. She’s here trying to help those whose lives have been ‘hijacked’ by binge eating, emotional eating and food addiction. The drive to be thin, or using food to push down unwanted emotions can be helped. There is a correlation between past traumas and many unhealthy eating behaviors. Beginning the path to healing the trauma can help on the road to a healthy relationship with food.

Isolation: A Nasty Tactic of Coercive Control

When you are first with a #Hijackal, you are flattered that they want you all to themselves. You’re delighted that they want to be with you, and “can’t get enough of you.” That’s the normal joy of a new relationship. Then, when you’re with a toxic person, a #Hijackal, a #narcissist, there comes a moment when you find yourself isolated, alone, and marginalized. You look around and you have been separated from your family and friends.#Hijackals are happy then. You’re not and in this episode, I’m giving you clear insight into how narcissistic people manipulate you into that isolation. It’s usually gradual, and you don’t realize what the final result will be. You’re still trying to compromise and accommodate. The #Hijackal has another plan, and it involves cutting you off from as much support as possible. Nasty! Once you clearly see these manipulations, you can begin to put an end to it–one way or another.

Our Relationship with Food, Ourselves and the World

Join Kristin and Carolyn as they discuss everything from social unrest, racism, eating disorders, and her incredible podcast that just joined Mental Health News Radio Network.

Born in Houston, Texas, Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross spent her childhood in San Antonio where as the oldest of five children, she comes from a long line of physicians and healers. Her mother’s father was a well-known physician in Bryan, Texas, who opened his own hospital and nursing school. His mother, Betty Love, was a Cherokee medicine woman.

Dr. Ross wanted to be a doctor from the age of nine and worked many summers and vacations in her grandfather’s office, going with him on house calls, helping him deliver babies and learning how to dispense medications in his office pharmacy.

Dr. Ross’s Medical Background
Dr. Ross completed her undergraduate degree in Modern Foreign Languages at Purdue University and then was a full-time mother of her two older sons before returning to school to complete her Pre-Med requirements. She then went to the University of Michigan Medical School. Dr. Ross’s practice experience after medical school helped fuel her interest in understanding what makes people heal as she saw that most of her patients’ medical problems were related to lifestyle habits and the stresses of modern living.

In searching for a better way to address these issues, Dr. Ross began to explore complementary and alternative therapies and the use of herbs and supplements for her patients. She then completed a residency in Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University and set up practice in San Diego, California, where she eventually opened three women’s centers where she practiced primary care and office gynecology. Her women’s centers integrated the best of western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, chiropractic, and nutrition counseling. She developed and ran The Anchor Program that offered a holistic approach for individuals with food and body image issues. The Anchor Program is a non-diet approach with a philosophy that health and well-being are everyone’s right no matter their size. During that time, she also served as the medical director of The Rader Institute’s inpatient eating disorder program.

Dr. Ross’s Focus on Integrative Medicine
Dr. Ross’s own personal health crisis and the diagnosis of her mother with Alzheimer’s led her on a journey to healing in which her perspective about medicine changed and her desire to focus on integrative medicine led her to the University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine. Dr. Ross completed a two-year fellowship in Integrative Medicine, studying with Dr. Andrew Weil. Her path then led her to work as the head of the Eating Disorders Program and the Integrative Medicine Department at world-renowned inpatient hospital, Sierra Tucson where she pioneered the Integrative Medicine approach to eating disorder treatment. She currently works in private practice in Denver, Colorado, as an addiction medicine specialist and suboxone doctor who specializes in opioid addiction treatment. She also is a consultant for treatment centers across the country on eating disorders and integrative medicine.

Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross is a mother of three sons and has one granddaughter. She is also a nationally known author, speaker and expert in the field of Eating Disorders and Integrative Medicine. Her most recent book is “The Overcoming Binge Eating Disorder and Compulsive Overeating Workbook.” Other books include, “Healing Body, Mind and Spirit: an Integrative Medicine approach to the treatment of eating disorders” describing her own journey to healing and the miracles she found along the way. Dr. Ross has also developed a line of supplements as a result of her research, which are designed to support the recovery of patients with eating disorders and addictions.

EP 397 In a Nation of Grocery Chains, Why Do We Have So Many ‘Food Deserts’?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports there are 3,000 food deserts throughout the United States.  Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it?  While our guest gives a clearer definition of this designation, it basically means where people do not have access to a large format supermarket with healthy and nutritious food choices within walking distance. Most … Continue reading EP 397 In a Nation of Grocery Chains, Why Do We Have So Many ‘Food Deserts’?
