Dr. Phil and Imran Ahmed, Founder and CEO of the Center for Countering Digital Hate continue their conversation on the dangers of social media. They explore the lessons from Molly's story and how online content contributed to her taking her life; the double standards of social media companies and how they are not taking accountability for third-party content; and how we are building awareness of this gross neglect. Social media is full of wonderful opportunities for people to connect. It is also filled with people who push identity-based hate, extremism, disinformation, and conspiracy theories. Imran Ahmed joins Dr. Phil on his Phil in the Blanks podcast to discuss psychological malignancies on social media – and how to protect our children against them. ABOUT: The Center for Countering Digital Hate counters hate and disinformation, by disrupting the online architecture enabling its rapid worldwide growth. Digital technology has changed the way we communicate, build and maintain relationships, set social standards, and negotiate and assert our society’s values. Digital spaces, however, are often safe for bad actors spreading hate and disinformation, turning them into a hostile environment for others. Over time these bad actors, advocating diverse causes – from misogyny and racism to denial of science and conspiracy theories – have mastered using these platforms to cause considerable real-world harm.  ●TikTok Parents Guide: TikTok pushes harmful content into young users’ feeds.

Sadly, the interest to become a teacher or remain a teacher is the worst in our nation’s history. We’ll tackle the teacher shortage, low standards, student whining, and new requirements in states like AZ & FL that passed what critics call the “warm body” law to put unqualified people in classrooms as teachers. Other states are pushing universities to expedite teacher certifications. Some districts are hiring student teachers who are still enrolled in college to be full-time first-year teachers. Dr. Ingrid Haynes-Traylor served two decades in P-12 public education as a teacher and administrator and now serves as the Director of the National Literacy Institute. She also teaches bachelor's, master's, and doctoral level literacy courses and has published books and numerous journal articles on literacy instruction. She actively researches best practices in literacy instruction for at-risk student groups and conducts literacy training and workshops across the nation to build instructional capacity in teachers who teach our most fragile learners.

Zero Victim!

Zero Victim!

2022-11-0801:06:01

Victimhood culture, a concept that originates in sociology, is today defined as a tendency of people to over-emphasize the need to protect their (sexual, gender, ethnic) identity and to present themselves as victims, even if the alleged offense was minor or only imagined. My guest today, PASTOR JAMES WARD, says that the “core conviction to overcome is the first step to shifting from victim to zero victim thinking.” We are discussing Pastor James’ book “Zero Victim: Overcoming Injustice with a New Attitude” and ways we can get out of victimhood.    Check out: Women's Meditation Network : linktr.ee/womensmeditationnetwork)   Learn more about your ad choices.

“Harm reduction” is a theory that argues deaths from overdoses can be greatly reduced with the implementation of strategies that allow people with drug dependency access to drugs in a safe way. Michael Shellenberger, author of “San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities,” says, ”There is no safe use of these drugs.”  On this episode of the Phil in the Blanks podcast, Dr. Phil’s guest, Michael Shellenberger, discusses the ways in which he claims harm reduction policies emphasize personal liberties but ignore personal responsibility.

Sen. Scott Wiener Discusses ‘Safe Sites’ For Drug Addicts To Use California State Senator Scott Wiener joins Dr. Phil on his Phil in the Blanks podcast to discuss “safe sites” for drug addicts to use. Senator Wiener, who wrote Senate Bill 57, which would have legalized safe consumption sites in San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles and Los Angeles County, shares why he says he considers this to be life-saving legislation – and why he thinks Governor Newsom vetoed it.   “We have tried arresting people, incarcerating people, and for some, that works,” Senator Wiener says. “But for most people, it doesn’t. That’s what safe consumption sites are about – first and foremost, making sure people don’t die.”   New episodes drop Tuesdays.

California has the highest number of homeless encampments in the United States and holds more than half of all unsheltered homeless people. In an effort to resolve homelessness, major cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles, Portland, Austin, Houston, and San Francisco, are passing bills that will effectively ban homeless encampments from certain areas. However, homeless advocates argue banning and sweeping homeless encampments is inhumane, doesn’t solve the problem, and will ultimately create even bigger issues. Dr. Phil speaks with Donald Whitehead, Executive Director of the National Coalition for the Homeless, on his Phil in the Blanks podcast to dig deeper into this crisis. “If we give them a hand-up – not a handout – we can really change the direction of this country,” says Whitehead, who has worked for years advocating for systemic change to end homelessness.

 You’re way off Dr. Phil on your white privilege comment.  You are using a straw man argument that is not backed up with statistical proof. It’s all anecdotal.  You should have a conversation with someone like Larry Elder to flush out that strawman argument and understand it better.

Yes but what about the large amount of black people who use that race card for stupid stuff. Like recently I heard a black girl on a bike whowas riding her bike going against traffic. The policeman stopped her and told her that was dangerous. When asked hfor her information, she refused. She used the black card and said the only reason why she was stopped was because she was black. STUPID. This is the issue that needs to be addressed. IT IS NOT RACISM, it is people using their race to get out of situations. The are bringing this "stigma" of racism on themselves everytime they use that race card.

Dixon said he plans to both continue drawing and help other prisoners. "If you don't have any money in this system, it's hard to get justice because the system is not equipped or designed to give a poor person a fair trial," he noted. "So we have a lot of work ahead of us." While Dixon was cleared of the murder, Judge Susan Eagan did not clear a criminal possession of a weapon charge from his record. That conviction, without the erroneous murder charge, would have come with a sentence of five to 15 years. click here to find out more https://thefridaymail.com/

I am paying a lot of attention to this last post and I've been able to identify that my husband has a lot of this characteristics you mention. He also suffers from general anxiety disorder. we've been married for eleven years and have a child. physical aggression has never been present but a lot of verbal aggression and a lot of manipulation from his side. he had a complicated childhood, he's very insecure as a man, he has said a few times that I won't be able to survive without him, etc. I have been very clear about divorce and is something I intend to do. How can I manage separation with someone like this? I don't like conflict of any kind and I want to make it safe not only for me but most importantly for my child.

Sounds like my mother is a covert narcissist. It has been one trauma after the next since my first memories. I was a huge disappointment according to her. I caused her hell for 25 years she says. So I believe therapy has backfired for her. I thought yes..finally but instead it seemed to be more about finding deeper levels of deception to back her behavior. I get it when you mentioned that in your podcast. She was basically asking permission to dump me. She did learn how to do that from her therapist in a way where she wouldn't look bad to other people. Now I have Malignant metastatic melanoma that went to my brain. I had a 3 inch tumor last year and needed emergency surgery. I had many other small brain tumors gamma knifed and Yervoy/Obdivo immunotherapy. I wasn't told so at the time but I was not expected to live. My mom did not ask try to contact me and ask how I was even though she knew through my children. So, I wrote her and her response was this: How sad. No one should have to outlive one's own children. As if I'm putting her through more grief. 2 weeks ago I had another Brain MRI and Pet scan and there are no new signs of disease in my body. My doctors call it a miracle. The tumors they treated with gamma knife have shrunk or nearly disappeared. I was prepared to die and now this. Now it seems I have more time. I am not cured but apparently will have more time. My therapist and I are working on how to make the best of that time. It's good to hear that there really is nothing I can do about this apparent Covert Narcissism and I did go through a surprising "I want my mommy thing" throughout this past year. Your podcast on Covert Narcissism that my therapist recommended was very helpful. Please share more. Thank you, Kim

Any way to get a chat on coparenting with the Narcissist? I have been trying to coparent with one for 20 plus years. When I say it has been a living hell that's putting it very lightly. I am so very grateful for all these podcast you've done regarding this. I seriously felt as if you wrote it all about my kids dad. 😫
