Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews Psychologist and Author Leo Flanagan PhD.The mental health crisis is getting younger. The number of children needing urgent mental health care has been on the rise for years, and has devastatingly spiked over the pandemic. We have never before in our history seen this type of anguish in children and teenagers so young. Although this crisis will require resources and time to resolve, Leo Flanagan PhD, Psychologist, trauma and resiliency expert, is sharing some resilience tools to connect with your child to support their emotional health and alert you to warning signs that they are struggling. With over 30 years of experience in studying and developing resilience, Flanagan has responded to numerous disasters including 9/11, the Sandy Hook Newtown Shooting, Hurricane Sandy, and the Moore, OK EF-5 tornado.Kathryn also interviews Author and Science Journalist Nicola Twilley.Tracking the history and future of quarantine, Science Journalist Nicola Twilley and Co-Author Geoff Manaugh begin their investigation in the Mediterranean, visiting some of the oldest quarantine structures, originally built to protect against the spread of the Black Death. They follow the path of John Howard, an 18th-century prison reformer who became interested in the conditions of people kept in quarantine. As well as showing how quarantine powers have been abused throughout history, Manaugh and Twilley write about more recent events, from Ebola to Covid. They help us make sense of our new reality through a thrillingly reported, thought-provoking exploration of the meaning of freedom, governance, and mutual responsibility. Twilley is a science journalist who contributes regularly to The New Yorker.
