Podcast Episode: A Principle of Intentionality

February 18, 2019

Intentionality is a conscious state of being in the present moment. One of the central elements of social cognition, and people's folk theory of mind in particular, is the concept of intentionality.

It structures people’s perception of behavior from infancy on, grows to a complex conceptual framework that links behavior to mind, and underlies distinct information processing paths in the explanation, prediction, and moral evaluation of behavior.

The concept of intentionality itself may be a very complex feature that incorporates the different traits, and perhaps more. Join us tomorrow as Jake dives in with anecdotes and personal examples.

Podcast Episode: Finding Your Spiritual Life Path

February 4, 2019

The meaning of life has been the query of humanity since ancient times. And still today we are no closer to knowing how to find our spiritual calling than they were!

Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life.

You will notice as you read on that many practices recommended for cultivating spirituality are similar to those recommended for improving emotional wellbeing. This is because there is a connection between the two—emotional and spiritual wellbeing influence one another and overlap, as do all aspects of wellbeing.

In todays episode Jake digs deeper on the topic of spirituality with Pastor Louie Locke.

Podcast Episode: Motivation: Psychological Factors Behind Behavior

January 28, 2019

In today's episode we discuss motivation. It is defined as the process that initiates, guides, and maintains goal-oriented behaviors. Motivation is what causes you to act, whether it is getting a glass of water to reduce thirst or reading a book to gain knowledge.

While motivation and emotion can be intricately linked, they are two fundamentally different things. Motivation describes the wants or needs that direct behavior toward a goal; in contrast, an emotion is a subjective state of being that we often describe as a feeling. Emotion and motivation are linked in several ways: both influence behavior and can lead us to take action, and emotion itself can act as a motivator. For example, the emotion of fear can motivate a person to leave a stressful situation, while the emotion of happiness can motivate a person to be more productive on a project that reinforces that emotion.

Podcast Episode: Ethics in Therapy! How Is Your Therapist Treating You?

January 21, 2019

In today's episode we go over ethics of clinicians in the mental health profession. We believe it is very important to become familiar with the basic ethical guidelines that therapists should follow before you begin therapy with a new therapist, and we encourage you to do so. Unfortunately, media portrayals of therapy do not always provide examples of ethical, effective therapy experiences and many myths about therapy persist.

Jake provides information to ethical codes because we feel it is important for people to know the difference between ethical and unethical behavior. Most therapists intend to “do no harm” and strictly follow ethical guidelines. Overall, mental health professionals are a good people.

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part V: Fear and Surprise

January 14, 2019

Facial expression recognition is mediated by a distributed neural system in humans that involves multiple, bilateral regions. There are six basic facial expressions that may be recognized in humans (fear, sadness, surprise, happiness, anger, and disgust); however, fearful faces and surprised faces are easily confused in rapid presentation.

In today's episode Jake explains how the concept of surprise and fear is relevant to many aspects of human behavior. It also affects beliefs about other events. When a person takes an unexpected stance that violates his or her self-interest, the person’s arguments are surprising and quite often more persuasive.

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part IV: Disgust and Contempt

January 7, 2019

In today's episode Jake breaks down the 4th part of Understanding Emotions. He discusses Disgust and Contempt.

Analyzing the contempt as an intergroup emotion, we suggest that contempt and anger are not built upon each other, whereas disgust seems to be the most elementary and specific basic-emotional antecedent of contempt.

Want to enjoy positive work relationships, healthy relationships with friends, family and partners?  Dump the contempt.  Listen well.  And pump up the positivity! When those more vulnerable feelings are explored in safety and grieved dyadically, a corrective emotional experience may occur. You can’t build a temple of appreciation without fully excavating the building site.

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part III: Guilt and Shame

December 31, 2018

In today's we discuss deeper into Guilt and Shame. Jake discusses potentially the unhealthy cycles of shame and guilt. We encourage you to think of instances in your life where you may be requiring deed based performances from people in order for you to extend forgiveness, and ask yourself are these deeds really necessary for you to forgive them?

Similar to respect and trust, it is up to us to extend these to people. Is it really necessary for us to require people to ‘earn’ these things from us with an arbitrary deed? On the flip side, maybe you think certain people in your life are requiring too much from you. Jake gives everyday examples of where this may occur and delves deeper into forgiveness and the emotions of shame and guilt.
