Challenge Your Thinking with Dr. Linda Tucker

Dr. Glen Gabbard is a renowned psychiatrist and psychiatric educator whose research has been invaluable in the mental health field and elsewhere.  An abuse of power can happen at work, in the church or any institute or organization that runs hierarchically.  His message is for all of us, because the moment anyone believes they are infallible they are bound to make mistakes.  At its best, the relationship between a patient and psychotherapist should be a safe place where learning, personal growth and healing can happen.  In some ways we could say something similar about working for a company where we have a manager who supervises our successes and/or our failures. That is why Dr. Glen Gabbard’s research, counsel and writing about blurred boundaries is so important in our every day lives.

Dr. Amy Cuddy is a Harvard Professor, Researcher, Author and Social Scientist.  In 2012, she graced the Ted Talk stage and became one of their top two all time favorite presenters by discussing how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments can affect us from the classroom to the boardroom. Millions of us--nearly 34 million to be exact-- sat up and listened. She has expounded upon that Ted talk and turned it into her new bestselling book called “Presence.” Amy Cuddy is doing meaningful work by showing us what authentic presence really means and she is touching a nerve around the world with her research and her new book. Rather than trying to protect how we are perceived, Amy advocates that we tap into our vulnerability by letting our true selves be seen.  While it might seem easier in the moment to shrink back and avoid the risk of being seen, we will ultimately miss out on the deep sense of connection and satisfaction that comes from being authentic.
