Original Air Date Wednesday, April 14, 2021 


The human brain contains multiple systems designed to protect us and aid in our survival. When we experience trauma the event is stored in our memory as a way to maintain vigilance when we are confronted with a similar situation. In our modern world, the likelihood of being cornered by a sabre-toothed tiger is null but our memory and trigger systems have yet to be updated. To hunt for the latest mind management techniques and attitude alteration strategies, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with three agents of change. Dr. Richard Lane is a Psychotherapist whose work has been instrumental in our ability to heal trauma. He discusses his groundbreaking therapy used to update emotions from his book, Neuroscience of Enduring Change. And, Gay Hendricks and Carol Cline share the second phase of their innovative process to alter attitudes, Conscious Luck and the Conscious Luck Workbook.
