While Adam was interviewing Dr. Elliott-Groves we both watched in awe as she started drawing out the concepts she was so clearly discussing. Emma is a member of the Cowichan Tribe, a First Nation people on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Taking an ecological approach to her work she brings the listener into a world view of community and relationships that helps better plan interventions.
What if we all woke up one day. Listening to Drs. Jessica Ribeiro and Joe Franklin is kind of like that; waking up to a new day and a new way to look at what we have assumed for so long when it comes to risk. Joe electrified the crowd at AAS with a keynote that introduced a new paradigm for suicide research. Later Jess continued the discussion by questioning "What We Risk by Maintaining the Status Quo About Suicide Risk". Here we had the chance to talk with both at once and listen has they riffed on their own work and their work in common.
In this podcast Adam Hoffberg and Dr. Katie Lewis discuss how daily social experiences operate as risk and/or protective factors against suicide. Dr. Lewis is a Research Psychologist at the Austen Riggs Center and a recent AFSP Young Investigator Grant recipient for her research, which utilizes ecological momentary assessment methods to study the social drivers of suicidal ideation in adults contending with complex chronic psychopathology. Adam and Dr. Lewis talk about the importance of studying the daily social experiences of individuals with chronic suicidal ideation, and the challenges (and benefits!) of implementing experience sampling research designs in active clinical settings.
Adam sat down with Elvis Walden from StackUp.org. There was a social during AAS for folks involved in social media and these two gamers got to talking and one thing led to another and before you know it they produced a podcasts. What I like about Stack Up is they have built another community where people can get together and support one another. We have done a number of podcasts that feature Veterans finding and building community around a shared activity, this time gaming. And it works.
