Rank #4: #658 Deconstructing Anxiety: From Fear to Fulfillment with Todd Pressman PhD

Podcast cover
Read more
Todd Pressman, Ph.D. is an international presenter, psychologist and author.  He is the founder and director of Logos Wellness Center and Pressman and Associates Life Counseling Center, dedicated to helping people design lives of meaning, purpose and fulfillment.  His studies under some of the world's leaders in the Consciousness movement, as well as the personal grooming he received from a father whose teachers were students of Sigmund Freud, prepared the way for the discovery of the holistic principles he espouses.  His work with Olympic athletes and high performing CEOs has further honed his understanding of the secrets of excellence and the path to fulfillment.

In 1982, he traveled around the world to study the great Wisdom traditions, spending time with a Zen master in the monastery of Kyoto; exchanging with a Zoroastrian high priest outside the Fire Temple of Mumbai; witnessing authentic fire walking and other fakir ceremonies in the jungles of Sri Lanka and Bali; and staying with a Jain family whose reverence for life had them put out sugar each night to feed the ants.  These experiences provided a cross-cultural perspective of the extraordinary capacities of the mind and spirit, a perspective that informs and enriches Dr. Pressman's work to this day,

In high demand as an international seminar leader and lecturer, he has presented at the prestigious Council Grove Conference (sponsored by the Menninger Foundation), the annual conference of the American Counseling Association, the International Society for the Systems Sciences, the International Conference on Holistic Medicine and Nursing (keynote speaker and chair),  the Annual Conference of the Society for Humanistic Psychology, the Association for Humanistic Psychology, the Omega Institute, the New York Open Center, the Tri-Quarter Gathering of Friends (keynote) and many others.  Having spoken at many of the major U.S. conferences on “A Course in Miracles”, he is recognized as one of the foremost authorities in that field.  Numerous journal publications, including articles in the highly regarded “Journal of Humanistic Psychology” and “Common Ground Magazine”, as well as two newspaper columns and multiple radio and television appearances, have demonstrated Pressman’s success as a proponent of the best of the new thinking in psychology and wellness.  His book entitled “Radical Joy: Awakening Your Potential for True Fulfillment” has also received wide acclaim.

He earned his doctorate in psychology from the Saybrook Institute and an undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania.  Pressman’s own intensive personal search, including an internship in Gestalt therapy at the Esalen Institute and training under Stanislav Grof in the Spiritual Emergency Network program, complement his more traditional background. Dr. Pressman’s professional affiliations have included membership in the American Psychological Association, American Counseling Association and the Greater Philadelphia Society for Clinical Hypnosis.  He has served on the Speakers’ Bureau of the American Heart Association, the President’s Council for Physical Fitness and Sports, and was a member of the Board of Directors for Horizon House, a national program in psychosocial rehabilitation for those who suffer from developmental disabilities.  In 1986, he received the Distinguished Service Award for his work in psychoimmunity from the Philadelphia Resource and Networking Association.

Rank #5: #656 Pivot Toward What Matters in Your life with Steven C. Hayes PhD

Podcast cover
Read more
Based on 35 years of experience, Dr. Hayes deduces that changing your relationship to your thoughts and emotions, rather than trying to change their content, is the key to healing. By exposing his own struggle with a panic disorder in A LIBERATED MIND: How to Pivot Toward What Matters (Avery/Penguin Random House), Dr. Hayes reveals: Normal, successful people are often suffering. Instead of being shamed, we need to let go of finding a way out and instead pivot toward finding a way in. As the originator and pioneering researcher into Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), he lays out the psychological flexibility skills that make it one of the most powerful, research-based forms of therapy. Psychological flexibility refers to your ability to connect with the present moment and direct attention and action toward what you value. Whether you are contending with depression, substance abuse, chronic pain, relationship issues, or limitations in business, ACT teaches you that you hurt where you care. Instead of shunning your vulnerability, embrace it to live a meaningful life.

Steven C. Hayes is Nevada Foundation Professor in the Behavior Analysis program at the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada. An author of 44 books and nearly 600 scientific articles, his career has focused on an analysis of the nature of human language and cognition and the application of this to the understanding and alleviation of human suffering. He is the developer of Relational Frame Theory, an account of human higher cognition, and has guided its extension to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a popular evidence-based form of psychotherapy that uses mindfulness, acceptance, and values-based methods. Hayes has been President of Division 25 of the APA, of the American Association of Applied and Preventive Psychology, the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy, and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science. He was the first Secretary-Treasurer of the Association for Psychological Science, which he helped form and has served a 5 year term on the National Advisory Council for Drug Abuse in the National Institutes of Health.

In 1992 he was listed by the Institute for Scientific Information as the 30th “highest impact” psychologist in the world and Google Scholar data ranks him among the top ~1,500 most cited scholars in all areas of study, living and dead (http://www.webometrics.info/en/node/58). His work has been recognized by several awards including the Exemplary Contributions to Basic Behavioral Research and Its Applications from Division 25 of APA, the Impact of Science on Application award from the Society for the Advancement of Behavior Analysis, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy

Rank #11: #661 Learning Self-Worth and Other Survival Skills with Inspirational Coach Anne Boudreau

Podcast cover
Read more
Anne Boudreau is an inspirational author, coach, and executive who is devoted to helping others develop healthy self-worth. She recently completed her first nonfiction book entitled, A Human Mosaic.

Anne’s desire to focus on the topic of self-worth is derived from her lifelong passion to address the array of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual issues that impede a person’s ability to feel fulfilled and enjoy inner peace. As she learned during her own challenging early years, the root cause of negativity, fear, anger, hatred, violence, bullying, and bigotry is low self-worth. 

After numerous years of research, Anne developed a unique niche in coaching others to build self-worth that is predicated on neuroplasticity, changing one’s brain through learning new thoughtsand behavior. Her comprehensive knowledge of the science of neuroplasticity has been instrumental to mentoring and teaching sustainable self-change. Through creating new neural pathways in the brain, anyone at any age or stage of life, can transform themselves to live with healthy self-worth and live the life they have dreamed.

Dan spent 11 years teaching in college classrooms before going into business full time for himself as a philosophical advisor and private teacher. In 2005, he won the "Teaching Fellow of the Year" award from Fordham University's Graduate Student Association.

Dan does not treat mental illness. He simply helps people reason more clearly, consistently, ethically, and proactively about their lives. Even psychologically healthy people need someone to talk to. Everyone has struggles that a little conceptual clarification, logical consistency, theoretical sensitivity, emotional intelligence, and an outside perspective could go a long way towards solving.

Dan also teaches philosophy classes independently online. His classes are for anyone interested in philosophy and require no background in the subject. The classes are held as live, casual, personalized, interactive, discussion-driven videoconference sessions. They are tailored to the needs of busy lifelong learners who want stimulating discussion rather than canned programs. They are stress-free, requiring no outside work and neither payment nor guilt for missed sessions.

#661 Learning Self-Worth and Other Survival Skills with Inspirational Coach Anne Boudreau

Podcast cover
Read more
Anne Boudreau is an inspirational author, coach, and executive who is devoted to helping others develop healthy self-worth. She recently completed her first nonfiction book entitled, A Human Mosaic.

Anne’s desire to focus on the topic of self-worth is derived from her lifelong passion to address the array of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual issues that impede a person’s ability to feel fulfilled and enjoy inner peace. As she learned during her own challenging early years, the root cause of negativity, fear, anger, hatred, violence, bullying, and bigotry is low self-worth. 

After numerous years of research, Anne developed a unique niche in coaching others to build self-worth that is predicated on neuroplasticity, changing one’s brain through learning new thoughtsand behavior. Her comprehensive knowledge of the science of neuroplasticity has been instrumental to mentoring and teaching sustainable self-change. Through creating new neural pathways in the brain, anyone at any age or stage of life, can transform themselves to live with healthy self-worth and live the life they have dreamed.

#658 Deconstructing Anxiety: From Fear to Fulfillment with Todd Pressman PhD

Podcast cover
Read more
Todd Pressman, Ph.D. is an international presenter, psychologist and author.  He is the founder and director of Logos Wellness Center and Pressman and Associates Life Counseling Center, dedicated to helping people design lives of meaning, purpose and fulfillment.  His studies under some of the world's leaders in the Consciousness movement, as well as the personal grooming he received from a father whose teachers were students of Sigmund Freud, prepared the way for the discovery of the holistic principles he espouses.  His work with Olympic athletes and high performing CEOs has further honed his understanding of the secrets of excellence and the path to fulfillment.

In 1982, he traveled around the world to study the great Wisdom traditions, spending time with a Zen master in the monastery of Kyoto; exchanging with a Zoroastrian high priest outside the Fire Temple of Mumbai; witnessing authentic fire walking and other fakir ceremonies in the jungles of Sri Lanka and Bali; and staying with a Jain family whose reverence for life had them put out sugar each night to feed the ants.  These experiences provided a cross-cultural perspective of the extraordinary capacities of the mind and spirit, a perspective that informs and enriches Dr. Pressman's work to this day,

In high demand as an international seminar leader and lecturer, he has presented at the prestigious Council Grove Conference (sponsored by the Menninger Foundation), the annual conference of the American Counseling Association, the International Society for the Systems Sciences, the International Conference on Holistic Medicine and Nursing (keynote speaker and chair),  the Annual Conference of the Society for Humanistic Psychology, the Association for Humanistic Psychology, the Omega Institute, the New York Open Center, the Tri-Quarter Gathering of Friends (keynote) and many others.  Having spoken at many of the major U.S. conferences on “A Course in Miracles”, he is recognized as one of the foremost authorities in that field.  Numerous journal publications, including articles in the highly regarded “Journal of Humanistic Psychology” and “Common Ground Magazine”, as well as two newspaper columns and multiple radio and television appearances, have demonstrated Pressman’s success as a proponent of the best of the new thinking in psychology and wellness.  His book entitled “Radical Joy: Awakening Your Potential for True Fulfillment” has also received wide acclaim.

He earned his doctorate in psychology from the Saybrook Institute and an undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania.  Pressman’s own intensive personal search, including an internship in Gestalt therapy at the Esalen Institute and training under Stanislav Grof in the Spiritual Emergency Network program, complement his more traditional background. Dr. Pressman’s professional affiliations have included membership in the American Psychological Association, American Counseling Association and the Greater Philadelphia Society for Clinical Hypnosis.  He has served on the Speakers’ Bureau of the American Heart Association, the President’s Council for Physical Fitness and Sports, and was a member of the Board of Directors for Horizon House, a national program in psychosocial rehabilitation for those who suffer from developmental disabilities.  In 1986, he received the Distinguished Service Award for his work in psychoimmunity from the Philadelphia Resource and Networking Association.

#656 Pivot Toward What Matters in Your life with Steven C. Hayes PhD

Podcast cover
Read more
Based on 35 years of experience, Dr. Hayes deduces that changing your relationship to your thoughts and emotions, rather than trying to change their content, is the key to healing. By exposing his own struggle with a panic disorder in A LIBERATED MIND: How to Pivot Toward What Matters (Avery/Penguin Random House), Dr. Hayes reveals: Normal, successful people are often suffering. Instead of being shamed, we need to let go of finding a way out and instead pivot toward finding a way in. As the originator and pioneering researcher into Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), he lays out the psychological flexibility skills that make it one of the most powerful, research-based forms of therapy. Psychological flexibility refers to your ability to connect with the present moment and direct attention and action toward what you value. Whether you are contending with depression, substance abuse, chronic pain, relationship issues, or limitations in business, ACT teaches you that you hurt where you care. Instead of shunning your vulnerability, embrace it to live a meaningful life.

Steven C. Hayes is Nevada Foundation Professor in the Behavior Analysis program at the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada. An author of 44 books and nearly 600 scientific articles, his career has focused on an analysis of the nature of human language and cognition and the application of this to the understanding and alleviation of human suffering. He is the developer of Relational Frame Theory, an account of human higher cognition, and has guided its extension to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a popular evidence-based form of psychotherapy that uses mindfulness, acceptance, and values-based methods. Hayes has been President of Division 25 of the APA, of the American Association of Applied and Preventive Psychology, the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy, and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science. He was the first Secretary-Treasurer of the Association for Psychological Science, which he helped form and has served a 5 year term on the National Advisory Council for Drug Abuse in the National Institutes of Health.

In 1992 he was listed by the Institute for Scientific Information as the 30th “highest impact” psychologist in the world and Google Scholar data ranks him among the top ~1,500 most cited scholars in all areas of study, living and dead (http://www.webometrics.info/en/node/58). His work has been recognized by several awards including the Exemplary Contributions to Basic Behavioral Research and Its Applications from Division 25 of APA, the Impact of Science on Application award from the Society for the Advancement of Behavior Analysis, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy
