SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Dec. 13, 2016 /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 impactful show on why people lie on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 5 p.m. Pacific time on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. During the program, "Fabricating the Facts: Why Liars Keep Lying," the show's panel discussed how the brain adapts to dishonesty and explored the different types of liars and how to know when a person is lying. The show is co-hosted by Program Producer Kristina Kuestner and Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Sovereign Health, who provides in-depth medical and clinical expertise.
Sunday's featured guest speakers included: Neil Garrett, Ph.D., a cognitive neuroscientist at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute; Charles Ford, M.D., a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, School of Medicine; and Robert Buchanan, a panelist who educated the audience with his personal perspective on why he used to engage in compulsive lying.
"In my opinion, and I believe there is a fair amount of evidence and research supporting my claim, different personality disorders have higher rates of deceit and lying than normal people," says Dr. Ford. "Most people generate some form of anxiety when they tell a lie, but a person with a personality or learning disorder may form little to no anxiety when they tell a lie."
"At some point, the person who is doing the compulsive lying is, in essence, an addict. They're addicted to lying and therefore it is necessary to look at it and treat it as an addiction," adds Dr. Ford.
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.
