Play • 1 hr 2 min

In this episode, Les chats with psychologist Dr. David Roland about navigating suffering, and discovering new growth from the lessons it brings. Dr. Roland also explores ways we can support others during challenging times.

Dr. David Roland is a writer, presenter and psychologist whose work draws on lived experience and his professional training. He graduated with a BSc (Hons) from the University of Sydney and gained his PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Wollongong with a research focus on performance anxiety in musicians. David worked as a clinical and forensic psychologist for more than twenty years in the treatment and assessment of clients ranging from children to adults, the Children’s Court Clinic and the Criminal Court. He is currently an Honorary Associate with the University Centre for Rural Health, University of Sydney, and a founding member of Compassionate Mind Australia. He is an advisor to the Young Stroke Project with the National Stroke Foundation.

David’s latest book "The Power of Suffering: Growing through life crises" draws together the real-life stories of 11 incredible people who survived their crises and grew in transformative ways. David not only narrates these stories, but he also examines them through the lens of posttraumatic growth. He details how to be an ‘expert companion’ to someone who is going through crisis.

His memoir "How I Rescued My Brain: a psychologist’s remarkable recovery from stroke and trauma" describes how David set about implementing his own rehabilitation plan using neuroplasticity, psychology and social connection. This book was shortlisted for an ABIA award in 2015 and was selected by Reading Well (UK) as a prescription book.

"The Confident Performer" is a self-help guide for anyone in the performance space and came out of his PhD research and work with hundreds of performers, public speakers and examination takers. It has been used worldwide in performing arts teaching institutions.

David is published in Best Australian Science Writing 2015. He has been featured in international publications, radio and television including the Sunday Express, The Independent, The Sydney Morning Herald, Huffington Post, The Conversation, Wellbeing, ABC Television and ABC Radio National. In 2015, he was awarded the Stroke Foundation’s Creative Award. He has academic publications in the fields of performance anxiety and vicarious trauma.

MLK Day; What to do with Hate
Today’s episode of The Mindful Minute is a special offering in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the painful struggles our country is wading through in this moment of time. Two weeks ago, on Wednesday, January 6, we watched as a group of Americans stormed our Capitol during a joint session of Congress. We watched and heard hatred spew for so many of the cultural, ethnical, racial, sexual divides that make up our population. And amidst this heartbreaking and terrifying display of hatred, our own {my own} values of non-hate/ non-violence have been tested. ** Today, I am holding close this reminder from Martin Luther King Jr. - ** “Along the way of life, someone must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate. This can only be done by projecting the ethic of love to the center of our lives.” Today’s class will be a discussion of what to ‘do’ with hate/anger/grief/fear - all the heavy emotions - within our meditation practices and how to project the ethic of love to the center of our lives.
