The Experts Speak - An Educational Service of the Florida Psychiatric Society

By Abbey Strauss MD

Listen to 15-20 minute long interviews of experts on various topics related to mental and general health. The topics will be continuously expanded. The interviews are designed for both professionals and non-professionals. Topics range from climate change issues and the basis of new medication research, COVID-19 issues, the effect of media on girls's self-images, discussions of violence, same-sex marriages, pollution, bullying, divorce, OCD, addictions, borderline personality disorders, mental health issues in the deaf, hallucinations, obesity, addiction in physicians, TMS, depressions, anxiety and stress, hypnosis, bullying, emotional and sexual abuse, MAOI, domestic violence, IBS, self-cutting, medication and children, eating disorders, medication metabolism, pharmacogenomics, forensic issues, dementia, suicide psychiatric treatment, love, care-giving youth, teenage LGBT issues, stuttering, play, PTSD, medication side effects, the effect of war violence on children, and so on. Please note that any opinion or position expressed in these interviews is not necessarily that of the host or of the Florida Psychiatric Society. Any individual treatment decision must be the product of a proper doctor-patient interaction. Likewise, new or additional information on each topic may have developed since the time the interviews occurred. Consult your physician for such possible changes. Additional production funding support comes from the Wellington Retreat, Florida. Knowledge has the power to understand and improve ourselves.
