Maureen Scanlon joins Doc Heath in the A.R.T. LAB for the second of a super-charged 2-part episode encouraging humans to learn from furrier members of the family to maximize relationships. This info-packed episode covers love, self-empowerment, & resilience in relationships including the power of personal responsibility and how we should beware of social media misinformation memes of toxicity, gas-lighting, & emotional reasoning. We first engineer our thoughts THEN, our thoughts engineer our lives.
Doc Heath holds a dual Ph.D. in Neuropsychology & Forensic Psychology. He has been in the behavioral health field for over three decades and operates his own private practice clinic.
