yeah I’m finding it odd as well. Like the place is recommended jointly with the forum? i really don’t know. But I find it funny.What is this obsession with Shepherd Pratt? There’s a million different mental health specific hospitals and treatment centers across the country. They’re just fancier and more expensive so what’s the big deal?
It can be trauma for either a layperson or a professional. It can also NOT be trauma, for either group.Why is it trauma if a layperson watches a person die but not if it’s someone in healthcare or palliative care especially?
Not anymore, he's not. He hasn't been licensed to practice for well over a decade. So yes, holds a doctorate; no, isn't a psychologist. Former psychologist, if one is feeling generous.He’s a psychologist
My guess is, he does know. It's that audience of bubble-people who make up his fan base. It really is upsetting, I agree.He should also know he’s just giving confirmation bias to people at home who want to live in their bubbles and act like kids acting out is solely the kids fault and has nothing to do with any trauma potentially triggering it.
in both cases this can be trauma.Why is it trauma if a layperson watches a person die but not if it’s someone in healthcare or palliative care especially?
"psychologist" is a strong word. he hasn't held a license to practice since 2006 and he's mired in tons of lawsuits. a lot of real mental health advocates have stated his methods are inapproreate and unethical at best (remember the serial killer in the making bullshit?) and harmful at worst.He’s a psychologist, he should know this.
To add to this, healthcare pros have a set of things to do when an unexpected death happens, and have the supplies to do it (In the UK anyway), I'm a nurse and don't tend to feel traumatised by hospital stuff because I know what to do, even if it doesn't work, I know I did what I could, for a layperson (or healthcare pro) in the community there's a lot more "what ifs" involved, so it has a bigger impact.If your job carries with it an expectation that death may occur - such is the case with many areas of healthcare - then there is a very good chance that the healthcare professional will either have some slight advance warning of the death, or even (as with palliative care) a longer time frame in which to know that death is coming.
This is good to know. It really sucks because it could be such an awesome platform to actually teach but it’s chosen to be shitty Jerry Springer with a degree.He hasn't been licensed to practice for well over a decade
I think this is the part I really need to remember when thinking about it. Knowledge reduces panic majority of the time, not always obviously but it gives some resilience. I need to remember that the situations I’ve been in I didn’t have knowledge or planning or support before/during/after. Ugh I don’t know, I’m not ready to talk about this here yet though.because I know what to do
