The ACT Matrix and Training Law Enforcement Officers: Session 138 with Tina Long and Joe Schlenz
Shortly after I published Session 124 on Police Academy training with John O'Neill, Tina Long, a BCBA from Northern Virginia, emailed me to share the outreach work that she has done with her local police department in Fairfax County. Specifically, in the wake of the nationwide re-examination of the role of policing, Tina felt compelled share what she has learned about the ACT Matrix with local law enforcement personnel, and after leaning more about her story, I thought it was definitely worth sharing on the podcast. Tina and I had a brief conversation that we recorded back in August. At the time, she had the opportunity to do a training with the police department, but unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond her control, her allotted time was cut to 20 minutes. As such, we made plans to connect later on and record another segment once Tina was able to get deeper into the material. So this podcast consists of both the original conversation from August, and our follow up, which was recorded in November 2020. For Part 2 of this conversation, Tina was able to get Officer Joe Schlenz, the lead crisis intervention training instructor, from the Fairfax County Police Department to join us as well. In this segment, Joe provides a wide-ranging perspective on the role of empathy and compassion in policing, de-escalation, triaging and managing risk, officer burnout and suicide, and so much more. If you're concerned about policing in America, I hope that the work he and his colleagues are doing will give you a sense of optimism. And as I've said in previous shows, it is always great to talk about how people from different fields consume and apply concepts from the behavioral sciences. Here are some of the resources we discussed: * Tina's website for NV Instruction (clearinghouse for lots of related content). * Facebook Group for clinicians using the ACT Matrix. * Tina's Crowdcast page (lots of free training resources). * The ACT Matrix: A new approach to building psychological flexibility across settings and populations (Polk and Schoendorff 2014)* * Crisis Intervention Team International. * University of Memphis CIT Center. I think this is really the first podcast where we talk about the ACT Matrix. If you're a long time listener, we've done many shows on ACT itself, but I'm looking forward to learning more about the ACT Matrix itself, so you can probably expect to hear more about it in 2021. This podcast is brought to you with the support of the following: * HRIC Recruiting.

Listeners will discover that Shawn is basically a walking health encyclopedia with extensive knowledge of hormones and biochemicals, and he can cite from memory obscure studies that either prove or disprove the point he is trying to make about what's healthy or what’s not.  His true gift, however, is making all of this complex information accessible for the average person. That's why his platform has become the go-to place to find out about the efficacy of various health studies and claims.  In this episode, Shawn shares a bit about his own wellness journey, from a fast food-eating, pill-popping couch potato to the model of health he is today, and he talks candidly about the serious health issues he suffered from and how he has healed himself by changing his diet, exercising regularly, and getting enough good-quality sleep.  His message is about reclaiming his health, and his mission is to help others do the same. Find out about Shawn’s childhood, his health journey, and the genesis of his skill to make information accessible and digestible, as well as some crucial and valuable information for finding your way to model health.

73. Ending Pregnancy At Home: Holistic Abortion Options
From time immemorial, women and wise folk have carried the knowledge of how to manage fertility. From menstruation to contraception to birth to miscarriage to abortion, these processes and this knowing has always belonged to the people. Ending pregnancy outside the modern medical paradigm and the cold, impersonal clinic is not only possible, but there are numerous safe and effective options. Let us eliminate the need for back alley abortions, reframe pro-choice as pro-choices, and step back into our power by educating ourselves and one another on what’s possible. IN THE INTERVIEW: * Some historical context (women have always ended pregnancies, but laws and attitudes around it have changed) * Choosing home care for pregnancy release rather than clinical care * Preventing pregnancy with herbs (and the one thing most people do wrong when using Queen Anne’s Lace for contraception) * The four ways to release pregnancy at home * I see a lot of people championing herbal abortion on social media, but it’s clear that they are not educated about the issues and difficulties with this method (it does not look like your dreamy earth mama one-with-nature self empowerment fantasy) * What a beautiful, supported pregnancy release at home can look like * Sometimes spirit babies come through to teach us things * The four essential herbal actions needed (find this chart at * Mifepristone and/or misoprostol (medical abortion) * Supportive food and herbs for the process * Aftercare: honoring that you are postpartum after releasing a pregnancy and focusing on rebuilding and healing * Supporting the liver, nervous system, and immune system * A woman going through this is never alone LINKS (if listening on an app that doesn’t support embedded links, find these at * Medicine Stories Patreon bonuses (resources, herbal chart, audio recording of my personal story) * My website * Take our fun Which Healing Herb is Your Spirit Medicine?

EP 335: Coaching Questions with Scott Pinyard
In this month’s coaching episode, This Naked Mind head coach Scott Pinyard is joined by Certified Naked Mind Coach Wendy McCallum who specializes in burnout and balance. Wendy shares some of her drinking story and talks about burnout - how we define it and what are the most common symptoms. Then, the coaches answer two questions: one from someone who is using alcohol to cope with stress, knowing it’s hurting but also feeling like it’s helping, and wondering how to handle the stress without alcohol; and one from someone who started drinking again and is struggling to stop. Hi, it's Annie Grace. I wanted to interrupt this podcast, I guess the end of this podcast, to say that if you are totally serious about actually truly and forevermore transforming your relationship with alcohol, really leaving it behind in the rear view mirror for once and forever more, and changing your psychology about it, we have a program called The PATH that is created specifically for you. Now it's not for you if you are still dabbling or still trying to figure out where you want to be or maybe even still want to moderate. All those things are fine, but if you are beyond that and you're like, "No, I just want to be done with this. I'm ready to invest some time and I'm ready to just make this happen." I want you to check out, and join us in The PATH where you can truly make this lasting change you want in your life. And as always, rate, review, and subscribe to this podcast as it truly helps the message reach somebody who might need to hear it today. Episode Links: Learn More About Wendy

The Power of Plant-Based Diets: Dr Alan Desmond | OYNB 107
Dr. Alan Desmond is a returning guest to the One Year No Beer podcast. Alan is a gastroenterologist and a passionate advocate of plant-based diets. In today’s episode, Alan discusses his own One Year No Beer journey. He talks about how he would give up drinking when he was training for Spartan races and why he finally decided to give up alcohol for good. He was training for a Spartan Ultra, and he decided to begin a challenge 90 days before a race. Like many people who try the One Year No Beer challenges, he found that he slept better, woke up fresher, and was generally more productive without the alcohol. “For me, it's been a real gamechanger. It's like you discover all this extra time in the day.” Alan also discusses his interest in plant-based diets. As a gastroenterologist, he explains, he frequently gets questions from patients about what they should be eating, what they should be avoiding, what types of foods will make them feel better and improve their diagnoses. Alan’s interest in giving his patients evidence-based answers to their questions led to his advocacy for a plant-based diet. Now, Alan’s written a book about plant-based diets and how they can help individuals lead healthier lives. In discussing his book, Alan talks about how the right diet can lead to a healthier mind and a healthier body. His book details a 28-day plan that people can use to test out a plant-based diet and see for themselves how much better they feel. He even talks about how the right diet can reverse serious conditions like diabetes and chronic inflammation. Listen to the episode to learn more about Dr. Desmond, his book, and the power of plant-based diets.
