Psychologist Tracy Dennis-Tiwary: I Want to Disrupt the Medicalization of Mental Health (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is a 20 June 2024 video from The Dad Saves America Podcast.

The host sits down with psychologist Tracy Dennis-Tiwary to explore her perspective on anxiety, resilience, and mental health.

Tracy argues that anxiety has played a crucial role in driving human innovation and should be embraced rather than avoided. She delves into the challenges faced by Gen Z, emphasizing that their struggles often stem from avoidance and a lack of coping skills rather than anxiety itself. Tracy points out that while social media exacerbates mental health struggles, it isn’t the all-powerful corrupting force it’s often made out to be in public discourse. She also discusses her innovative work in “digital therapeutics,” designing mobile games with the potential to revolutionize mental health care.

    Father God Jesus created the “MUSIC OF LIFE” for all humanity and animals throughout planet Earth. Wherever we are on Earth we hear an orchestra / symphony of environmental melodies and harmonies of musical notes, rhythm, and tempo that human beings have plagiarized by singing and making / playing musical instruments since Creation. The MUSIC OF LIFE stimulates the brain’s neurotransmitters (noradrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin) that regulate the body’s biological, physiological, psychological, sociological, emotional, and spiritual health and wellness including the hearing organs that sustain balance as we walk to prevent falling. Life can be overtly stressful, but happy and relaxing music melodies nourish both hemispheres of the brain. Humans do not need to be conservatory musicians to manage their brain and emotional health. Instead, follow these simple learned behaviors to empower your health. The human brain (and animals’ brain) always knows the difference of harmony, and non-harmony without academics. MUSIC comprises arithmetic, algebra, and geometry; therefore, musical math is the study of PATTERNS. For example, the repetition of MAJOR (C, D, E, F, G, A, B) sounds, and MINOR (a, b, c, d, e, f, g) sounds.
    1. LEARN MAJOR sounds by their consonance (harmonious), whereas most MINOR sounds are dissonant (inharmonious).
    2. DISCERN when the brain hears a melody that changes from harmonious to inharmonious because the brain has either identified MINOR sounds…

      sounds (sad) or MAJOR sounds (sad) that altered by tempo (speed) either slow-fast-slow or fast-slow-fast.
      3. LEARN to identify music composed by inharmonious / sad sounds. For your health and wellness, avoid listening to inharmonious sounds because they are intentionally composed to “evoke imagery” from listeners that cause sadness, anger, anxiety, and etcetera. Especially AVOID sad musical melodies during life events of family deaths, overt stress and anxiety, during weakened health and etcetera.
      4. MEMORIZE song titles that are composed by harmonious / happy sounds that stimulate the brain with pleasing, relaxing melodies that nourish both hemispheres of the brain that improve brain and physical health.
      Father God Jesus is 100% our Creator who thought of everything to protect humans’ brain from injury. Learn to Discern the sounds that enter your hearing organs that bi-directionally communicate with the brain. Protect your hearing and wearing hearing aids if injured, otherwise, non-treated injury to the hearing organs causes 5 of the 10 anatomical systems to disease prematurely that decrease life.
