Personal Wellness with Dr. Gerardo Rodriguez-Menendez– Episode 133

March 8, 2022

We've made some significant gains with medicine and mental health researchers have systematically investigated the impact of numerous stress reduction techniques and validated their efficacy and their effectiveness, such that these strategies have now been determined to be evidence-based treatment approaches, to include the neural and neuroendocrine mechanisms of stress. However, although we have these evidence-based efficacious psychopharmacological treatment options, that prescription of options still tends to play a minor role in psychological treatment. In today’s episode, Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Dr. Gerardo Rodriguez-Menendez. Gery is the department chair of the MS clinical psychopharmacology program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. He is a licensed psychologist in Florida and a board-certified psychologist with the American Board of Professional Psychology. Together they discuss the role of personal wellness as a foundation of one's health and the eight basic dimensions of wellness that are based on the biopsychosocial model.
