Interview with Dr. Colleen Cira:

Dr. Colleen Cira is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in Women and Trauma, and has worked with hundreds of people struggling with mental health issues.

There is a lot going on in terms of Psychophysiology when trauma is being felt—or in other words, our brains affect our body and visa versa. This information is imperative when it comes to learning how to calm our bodies and re-regulate our nervous system.

 

Talking Points from Dr. Cira
On Political Anxiety:

Sometimes politics can impact our mental health, especially when a particular year like the one we’ve all been experiencing is highly polarizing or when the stakes seem particularly high and the climate chaotic. This can lead us to feel exhausted, confused, and angry.

Talking Points from Roger Hall 
on How to Overcome Our Irrational Fears
Around the Coronavirus Crisis
:

The virus is real. There is a real threat, but human beings (when unsure of what to do), look to others to imitate. When everyone around them is freaking out, they assume that the proper response is to freak out. It is called “Social Proof.” One of the major problems for urban firefighters is crowd control. If you are looking to be safe, you probably don’t want to be in a crowd next to a burning building. In fact, people see others chasing the firetruck, so that is what they do, too. Before you know it, you’ve got a crowd of grown people chasing a firetruck to a fire. The same is true with toilet paper. You may have plenty at home, but the sparse shelves tell you that, “others are stocking up” so, based on the social proof, you stock up too—even if you already have a supply. Our basic imitative nature as humans creates a chain reaction of bad reactions. This is why leaders are so important in modeling calm, because when unsure, people look to leaders to imitate how to behave.

What Dr. Colleen Cira can say in an interview
On Presidential Debates:

When it comes to Presidential debates, style really matters. This is important to consider because being President comes with a tremendous amount of stress and responsibility. If one doesn’t have a good handle on their nervous system, then they can’t possibly manage stressful situations well because that kind of leadership and rationality requires us to have our nervous systems under control.

Leading Organizations Through a Pandemic

Available for Interviews: Roger Hall.

Dr. Roger Hall has a doctorate in Counseling Psychology, is an Executive Coach to entrepreneurs and leaders, and is an in-demand public speaker throughout North America.

 

Talking Points from Roger Hall 
on Leading Organizations Through a Pandemic:

  •      When people are uncertain what to do, they tend to look at the behavior of those around them for the correct response. When everyone else is freaking out, then they assume that freaking out is the correct response. “Everyone else is buying pallets of toilet paper. I guess I’ll buy a couple pallets too.” I’m not a big fan of Napoleon Bonaparte, but I do like his quote: “A leader is a dealer in hope.” There is no doubt that the Coronavirus pandemic is serious, but the fear of the pandemic is creating its own set of problems. In times of uncertainty, leaders can help their people have hope for a better future. Most anyone can handle a brief adversity, if they believe that there is a better future ahead.

Talking Points on What Dr. Cira Can Say in an Interview
About Explaining Protests to kids:

There are several ways that you can increase your child’s emotional intelligence and empathy.

    1. You must have empathy yourself.  The most effective way that kids learn is by watching the way their parents behave.  If YOU, the parent, have and demonstrate empathy, your children will grow up to be empathic.  Give money to homeless folks, check in on friends, family and neighbors who are ill and/or struggling, take your child to a peaceful, family friendly protest, volunteer at a food bank together.  SHOW UP the way you’d like your child to show up someday.
