Yes! For kids. A great conversation with Dr Philomena Donnelly (St Pats, Drumcondra) on how kids can be guided to engage in Socratic dialogue, eg questioning what they hear, and being able to defend an opinion - or change it if they deem it be be ... wrong (she mentions how adults have a hard time admitting they are wrong. Surely, she can't be right.)

Thank you.

Dr Pradeep kindly gave me his time to explain the spiritual richness of his Indian childhood; his curiosity about the human mind and his belief that mental health treatment should not rely so heavily on medication.

To do Dr Pradeep justice, I have edited out my questions. Hence, we get a very comprehensive picture of his work and his beliefs.

Thank you, Dr Pradeep. Thank you all for listening, and please share this programme. gerardcounihan@gmail.com

Brian Lynch Gambling Addiction Counsellor
January 12, 2015 09:11 AM PST

Brian converses with me on the above. One of the concepts that comes up is 'the feminisation of gambling'. Also interesting is to think that - according to some research - women tend to go to bingo or to a slot machine salon to seek company and to get a break from stress (paraphrasing!). Men, it appears, have more 'complex' reasons for gambling, eg ego, risk-taking, competitiveness, etc.
Thanks, Brian. gerardcounihan@gmail.com

A ridiculous question to ask anybody, I hedge, but let's say that I sounded out a range of people - amateurs and professionals - on which genre of music might be a 'cut above the rest'.

Thank you to all my contributors - and you the listeners.
