439: Mindfulness Addiction with Dr. Jud Brewer
Play • 39 min

Mindfulness a Solution for Addiction? Dr. Jud Brewer 

------ If we define addiction as continued behavior despite adverse consequences, we all have cause for concern. Perhaps you’re up so late watching Netflix that you make a mistake at work that costs you your job; maybe your pornography compulsion blocks real intimacy with your partner and derails your marriage; or maybe your online gambling leaves you with maxed out credit cards. It all sounds ridiculous until you focus the lens on your own life, open up your definition of what addiction means, and immediately discover that you too have maladaptive behaviors that might warrant change. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet an addiction psychiatrist who helps people use mindfulness on a path toward balance. Listen & Learn: 

  • How to know if you’re addicted? 
  • How to analyse the trigger + behavior + results  
  • Why you should focus on immediate experience (instead of long term) 
  • How to start by knowing thyself

Episode 152 - (ETHICS) Ethics of Teaching Cultural Responsiveness
While we weren’t able to record our live talk at the Thompson Center Conference this year, it did give us time to think about the ethical responsibility of BCBAs to include instruction and support in improving the cultural responsiveness of our supervisees. I mean, how else can we expect the next generations of behavior analysts to improve their ability to take culture into account during assessment, treatment, and rapport building activities?

CM 179: Marissa King On Feeling Good About Networking
For most of us, networking is a topic that brings up a lot of strong feelings. And most of those feelings aren't all that positive. Ultimately, we know we should network. But just thinking about it can make us uncomfortable. In fact, research shows that many of us associate networking with something dirty. On top of that, we feel guilty for not devoting more time to it. That's why I wanted to interview Marissa King. Author of the book, Social Chemistry: Decoding the Elements of Human Connection, Marissa is Professor of Organizational Behavior at Yale School of Management and an expert on social networks. Marissa's take on networking is refreshing because she emphasizes the relational aspect. She also provides tools for gauging how we network, so that we can easily see how well our approach is working. Her discussion of networking and her strategies for how to reframe it more positively help us to walk away without feeling icky. At the same time, her tips inspire us to tend to our professional network the way we would our personal one. If you're looking for a fresh take on networking, I think you'll enjoy hearing what Marissa has to say.  Episode Links Shout-out to Heather Cox Richardson for her Letters from an American Professional Networking Makes People Feel Dirty by Carmen Nobel Do People Mix at Mixers? by Paul Ingram and Michael W.
