Preventing anxiety, CALMTown, Air pollution and psychosis
Claudia finds out about a new approach to childhood anxiety - an intervention for anxious parents to help them manage their own fears and how they impact their parenting. She meets parents on the course run by Sussex Partnership NHS Trust and talks to Professor Sam Cartwright-Hatton from Sussex University who explains what can be done to help prevent mums and dads transmit their own fears to their children. Pamela Qualter from Manchester University discusses new findings on what predicts mental well-being in children. After several suicides in St Ives in Cambridgeshire, residents decided to prioritise mental health and make it a place where people are encouraged to open up about their feelings in the pub, barbers and even at Pilates. Olivia Crellin reports. Also in the programme, research has found that people who live in areas of high air pollution experience more psychosis. But why and what might be the mechanism? Pamela Qualter discusses.

Blow Your Mind (season 01) > BYM 089: 纪录片制作人Yunling

本期 BYM 邀请到我多年好友 Yunling。我跟 Yunling 是同事而又同学,有很多共同点:本科我们都学了计算机,之后又在 BCG 共事,同甘共苦做了几个艰难的项目(也由此了解的互相的能力和品位),再之后又成为 Stanford 同学。在 BCG 工作时候,有一次我给 Yunling 出了一道题:青蛙怎么判别公母?Yunling 回答说:下面那只是母的!这个回答令我感觉过于 graphic, 但是竟然也无从反驳。(我原本准备好的正解是:繁殖细胞比较大的,是母的。由此想引发讨论有关生物如何从无性繁殖进化成为有性繁殖。)Yunling 两年前离开了 BCG 舒适的工作环境(哈哈,“舒适” 这个形容词合适吗?),开始成为一位纪录片制作人。BCG+GSB 的背景而成为纪录片制作人,可能是个比较罕见的组合。但如果以我认识的 BCG+GSB 的人中,如果一定要有什么人做出这样选择的话,我想 Yunling 是最不令人意外的人选。这期 BYM,我们聊了聊 Yunling 成为一位制作人的经历,其中聊到我们各自创作的动机。我坚持在创作的是 BYM 播客,而最初的动机是因为觉得看不到很多自己喜欢的内容。曾经听 Ira Glass (This American Life 的主持人)说,每个人想要去创作,大抵是因为对现在存在的作品不能满意,觉得自己能够做的更好。(Glass 还继续说道,要真的能够 “做的更好“,还是需要漫长的成长的。)我想象的 ”更好“ 的样子,大致就是平常跟喜欢的朋友聊天的场景:天南海北的聊聊正在读的书,看的电影,遇见的有趣的人,自己正在做的事情。读到这里的你,在你的生活中,肯定也有这么几个人,跟他们见面是另你 look forward to, 跟他们聊天你会有收获,有启发。BYM 希望能够成为你生活中的这样一个朋友。我们还特别建了 BYM 听众微信群。收听本期节目:http://www...
