With statistics showing that stress, depression, anxiety and fear are fast becoming a major global problem, more and more people are turning to medical marijuana to help lift their low moods, calm chronic tension, ameliorate withdrawal symptoms, and ease their physical, mental, and emotional pain.

But how effective is medical marijuana really? And, perhaps more importantly, how safe?

While marijuana is the most commonly used drug of abuse in the USA, 26 states and the District of Columbia have now enacted laws that have legalized its use in some form, and three additional states have passed measures permitting the use of medical marijuana. With the cannabis debate being such a hot topic of late, Rebecca and Sandie have invited experts Dr. Rasean Hodge and Nick McCauley on to Cracked! The Podcast this week to unravel some of the many myths and misconceptions about cannabis in general, and the question of medical marijuana being a safer alternative to opiates and NSAIDs in treating PTS, depression, anxiety, addiction, mental health issues, and pain.

Dr. Rasean Hodge received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Morehouse College and earned his medical degree, cum laude, from the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Hodge completed his internship and residency in Family Medicine from the Morehouse School of Medicine in 2005.

Upon completion of his education, Hodge matriculated into Family Medicine and served as Investigator on numerous clinical research studies aimed at making the human condition better for those who are suffering. His compassion for those in need continued to be evident as he has led several Hospice Programs throughout Georgia as both Medical Director and Assistant Medical Director.

Nick McCauley is an expert on marijuana.

We all know people whose lives would be so much better if only they would listen to our advice and change…

We argue and fight with parents, relatives, students or children who don’t do what we want them to… we criticize colleagues who don’t behave in a way that we feel they should, and even sever relationships with partners, loved ones, and friends who won’t listen to us, even when we’re telling them something for their own good.

The truth is we all think WE know what’s best for others. Sometimes, we might even be right. But regardless of how well-meaning our motivation is, will never change someone by pushing.

So how do we get people to change? According to the latest neuroscience, there is a secret biological key to coaching genuine, lasting change in the lives of others and in us. Joining Rebecca and Sandie this week to explain the mechanisms that affect our ability to let go of behaviors, habits, thought patterns, and addictions that don’t serve us and open to new ideas and change is expert in the field of emotional intelligence, behavioral change, and competence, Professor Richard Boyatzis.

Richard Boyatzis PhD is a distinguished University professor at Case Western Reserve University, as well as a professor in the departments of Organizational Behavior, Psychology, and Cognitive Science. A fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the Association for Psychological Sciences, he is the author of over 200 papers and nine books including one that reveals the secret we’d all like to know… Helping People Change: Coaching with Compassion for Lifelong Learning and Growth.

According to Hungarian-Canadian physician, speaker and best-selling author, Dr. Gabor Maté: “Trauma is a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically and then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and now you’re acting out of pain. It induces fear and now you’re acting out of fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you. Trauma is that scarring that makes you less flexible, more rigid, less feeling and more defended.”

In this episode of Cracked! The Podcast, Rebecca Schaper and Sandie Sedgbeer speak with group and individual psychotherapist and author, Malcolm Stern about understanding, moving beyond, and healing emotional, physical, and psychological trauma.

MALCOLM STERN originally trained in Humanistic Psychology and has been working as a group and individual psychotherapist for more than 30 years. He is co-director and co-founder of alternatives at Alternatives, the internationally renowned platform for leading spiritual teachers and alternative thinking at St. James’s Church in London. In addition to running psychotherapy groups and courses internationally, he teaches occasionally at the Esalen Institute in California and Findhorn in Scotland, and is the author of Falling in Love, Staying in Love, and Slay Your Dragons with Compassion – 10 Ways to Thrive Even When it Feels Impossible.

Adolescence is a unique and formative time in life as well as a crucial period for developing and maintaining social and emotional habits important for mental well-being. The challenges of being a teenager and raising a teenager are well known. But thanks to Covid 19, those challenges have greatly escalated over the past year. With depression, anxiety, suicide, addictions, and other mental health issues rapidly escalating in children, it’s time to take a look at what we, as parents and caregivers, can do to support and guide our teens and tweens through this difficult time.

Lara Honos-Webb, PhD is a Practicing Clinical Psychologist licensed in California. A family therapist who works with teenagers, she is the author of several books on Attention Deficit Disorder, and is known for her distinctive reframing of mental illnesses that are commonly conceived as detrimental into gifts that offer exceptional strengths.

Dr. Honos-Webb joins Rebecca and Sandie this week to explain how the emerging knowledge of adolescent neural development and the tools shared in her new book, Six Super Skills for Executive Functioning, can help teens learn how to develop their self-confidence, regulate their emotions and mood, improve their focus, enhance their motivation, and bring them the hope, optimism, and skills that lead to immediate relief and improvement, as well as lasting growth to serve a lifetime.

Our mental health is a measure of how strong the relationships in our lives are. Since our sense of wellbeing is linked to our ability to create and sustain healthy connections with other people, having our emotional needs met is as important to our mental wellbeing as oxygen is to our breathing. Not having our needs for safety, trust, or attunement adequately met because of parental neglect, familial abuse, or other traumas can not only create a distortion in how we experience ourselves and others, but also compromise our nervous system’s ability to regulate our feelings.

Clinical Psychologist Dr. Naomi Kehati Bronner, specializes in understanding the dynamics that are at the roots of relationships between people and events that have shaped their perceptions of their self and their world. Dr. Bronner joins me today to explain why our primary relationships in terms of the parenting we received, the family dynamics we grew up with, and the kind of community we were raised will inevitably shape our lives, and how ancestral and developmental trauma are often the ground zero of most mental health issues.
