SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, aired an informative show, "Empathy," on Sunday, March 26 at 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. The broadcast discussed the importance of empathy, its neural correlation, impact on decision making and why it's necessary in everyday life. The show was hosted by Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, who provided in-depth medical and clinical expertise and Program Producer and co-host, Kristina Kuestner.
Sunday's featured guest speaker was Dr. Stephanie Preston, the Head of Ecological Neuroscience lab and an Assistant Professor of Psychology at University of Michigan. Dr. Preston particularly focusses on social factors and mechanisms that employ one's own emotional state as a guide for making decisions. Her research addresses the neural, physiological and cognitive mechanisms underpinning decisions about gathering and sharing resources.
"Empathy is how someone can understand their emotion along with others and that person can handle others on a day to day basis," said Ms. Preston. Autism spectrum disorder is generally considered one an empathy disorder. It comes along with many other impairments, not just social or emotional functioning. It's complicated because there are certain types of things that can be intact and others can be impaired."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
