Join host Tamara Neal on Voice America Empowerment Network in an engaging, insightful, and thought-provoking Live interview with Dr. Shoba Sreenivasan and Dr. Linda Weinberger. They recently released a book called Psychological Nutrition, which challenges readers to view their emotions through the lens of nutrition. How does consuming a diet of negativity affect your health, versus a diet of positivity? And what impact does this have on relationships? As psychologists at one level, but just as women with professional and familial demands on their own plates, Drs. Sreenivasan and Weinberger have observed how female colleagues, friends and they themselves neglect their own psychological nutrition in order to please others and in so doing so end up in “psychological starvation” mode. They take their unique and extensive experience as forensic psychologists and turn their analytic eyes toward how and why women strive to do “everything” and in the process risk losing themselves.
Tamara’s Relationship Transformations
Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Tamara’s Relationship Transformations helps people identify unhealthy emotional and physically abusive relationships, but also discusses positive relationships and how to transition to them. As a 911 Operator, Tamara found herself on the other end of the line when people of every age, ethnic group and economic status did unthinkable things. During this rare opportunity to be able to listen to what went on behind closed doors, Tamara came to know that toxic relationships can happen to anyone. Listening to Tamara’s Relationship Transformations is like having a chat with a girlfriend in a coffee shop. Many people who suffer from toxic relationships do not have friends because their abuser has isolated them but you have a friend now. Tamara together with her expert guests will identify the traits of many different types of toxic relationships, teach you how to avoid them and transition to transformation.

Her dispatch experience gave her the authority needed to write her 2015 National Indie Award of Excellence book, Venomous Relationships, a book penned to expose common less talked about toxic relationships. Neal is also the author of The World's Top Ten Worst Men for Women Guide and two children's books, “Kinship and Friendship,” which is a 2015 National Indie Award of Excellence finalist, in the children’s motivational inspirational category.
