Website: TopPhoenixPsychologist.com

Dr. Larry Waldman is an experienced, clinical, forensic psychologist practicing in Phoenix, AZ.  He works with children, adolescents, parents, couples, and individuals and consults with domestic relations, personal injury, and estate planning attorneys.  He consults with the Social Security Administration in Phoenix, teaches graduate courses for Northern AZ University, and speaks nationally on the topics of parenting, marriage, private practice development, and psychotherapy.  He is the author of 5 books, the latest of which is “Too Busy Earning a Living to Make Your Fortune?  Discover the Psychology of Achieving Your Life Goals”—which we will be speaking about tonight.

Questions for Dr, Waldman:

Why did you write this book?
Is this book only about money?
What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?
Why is it important to understand that difference?
Despite their dreams and desires, why don’t most people achieve their life goals—or get “stuck” as you say?
How does the need for instant gratification/ fear/ negative financial blueprint/ ignorance/ and low self-esteem/ cause people to fail to fulfill their dreams?
What are the four schools of psychology?
Why is it important to know of them?
What does each of the schools of psychology say about how we get “stuck” and how to achieve our life goals (get “unstuck”)?
What are some of the common expressions we all use to explain human behavior and how do they relate to the four schools of psychological thought?


Therèse Tappouni,  9:06 p.m. to  10:00 p.m.
Websites:  www.globalgrief.com www.theresetappouni.com

Questions for Ms. Tappouni:

1.      Before we talk about the effects that grief and sadness have on people during the holidays, tell us what led you to write the book “The Gifts of Grief: Finding Light in the Darkness of Loss.”
2.      You have said that “We bring our whole lives with us when we sit down at the holiday table.” What do you mean by that?
3.      Tell me what you mean when you talk about being affected by “energy” for our listeners who don’t think of themselves that way.
4.      So how does the topic you call “Global Grief” add to our feelings of anxiety or overwhelming sadness?
5.      Are you suggesting that the media shouldn’t show what’s happening in our world in real time? Are we meant to be protected from evil events like the Boston Bombing, 9/11 and Sandy Hook?
6.      We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of Sandy Hook. Obviously there will be a lot of reliving of the event. What are some tools you would recommend, especially to parents of young children, to help them cope with their feelings?
7.      I read somewhere that you refer to positive thinking as “bunk”. What about all the well-known people who teach positive thinking through affirmations and other systems?
8.      What kinds of tools do you teach that can change emotional patterns like anxiety or grief in a person that have been there for years—sometimes decades?
9.      The new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) for 2013 has removed what used to be called the “grief exclusion.” What is your take on that? (I think Dr. Prager should explain what the DSM is before I respond.)
10. You say in your book that the journey through grief and sorrow is the Hero/Heroine’s Journey. What do you mean by that?
11. When we talk about the number of our veterans who are suffering enough to commit suicide, and the number of Americans who are medicated for depression, what’s your opinion on why this is happening?12. You also take some issue with Dr. Kűbler-Ross’s the Five Stages of Grief. How does your experience differ from that long-established and accepted approach?
13.  In your overall work, you say the sacred cannot be separated from the process of healing, especially when you are teaching “living an intentional life”. Explain that.
14. Back to the title of your book “The Gifts of Grief: Finding Light in the Darkness of Loss.” How can you ask people who are newly into their grieving to believe there is a gift to be found there?
15. What takeaway do we have that can create a positive outcome going into the holidays, especially for those who are gathering with family?
