False Google Search (17:00) Dr. Thomas Maher is a Postdoctoral Researcher in Sociology at the University of Arizona. His research primarily contributes to our understanding of repression and threat processes, but he is broadly interested in systems of control and how they fail. Fake news has made the news in the recent months, and Google, along with many other websites, is taking heat for it. Dr. Maher explains the problem with internet search. Conversations to have before Marriage (1:02:56) Kristing Davin is a psychologist and relationship expert. In her work, Kristin believes in using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), an active, collaborative, and skills-based modality and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), an approach that will help individuals focus on your preferred future by setting small, achievable goals. She helps couples learn how to communicate more effectively and reconnect with each other. In today’s world one of the main reasons people are seeking out therapy is because of problems within their marriage. Marriage can be hard and complicated, and with today’s statistics showing that 40% of couples who get married, end up divorced, it’s hard to have hope. Kristin Davis gives us some advice on things we can do and conversations we can have before marriage help ease some of the complications that come with a legally binding relationship. Caitlin Thomas - New Things to Expect in 2017 (1:29:33) So, we have already finished one month in 2017, and so far we haven’t seen a whole lot of good yet this year. The news is pretty negative and full of politics and people are already tired of this year. But, Caitlin Thomas brings some positivity and hope back into 2017 for us. Islamophobia (1:50:00) Dr. Gregg Henriques is a licensed clinical psychologist with expertise in depression, suicide, and the personality disorders. He has developed a new meta-theoretical system for psychology and is now applying that system to researching well-being, personality, and social motivation. He also teaches courses in personality theory, personality assessment, social psychology and integrative adult psychotherapy. Dr. Gregg Henriques discusses ‘Islamophobia’ and how fear of religion is causing discrimination in our society today.
