She has specialized training in medical psychology from Shriners Hospital for Children in Boston, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, all of which are affiliated with Harvard Medical School, and she is an adjunct instructor in Psychology at Bastyr University in Seattle.
    As a mother and a psychologist, Kate Lund is deeply concerned about the prevalence of social media, bullying, and anxiety in America when it comes to our kids. In BOUNCE she shares tips and tools on how to help children deal with anxiety which puts a spotlight on resilience and how it helps students thrive. Resilience is so important because it is what helps children bounce back from challenge and move forward despite the challenge.
    There is some personal experience where this concept of resileince was drawn from. When she was a child, Kate was diagnosed with hydrocephalus which involved multiple surgeries where her head would have to be shaved. Her differences in appearance made her a target for the other children. With the guidance of her parents and her own resilience, she overcame and succeeded.

    Vocal BioAcoustic Biology Sharry Edwards

    Susun interviews Sharry Edwards.
    Sharry Edwards has been accused of being too scientific by some, too esoteric by others. She is a bridge between both fields of inquiry. Sharry is the acknowledged pioneer in the emerging field of Vocal Profiling using BioAcoustic Biology. She has for many years provided the leading-edge research to show the voice as a holographic representation of the body that can be used to change the face of medicine.
    Vocal Profiling can let us know the intentions of our leaders; the motivations of our partners; the foundation of our sense of well-being. Would those abilities be of value in the struggle to attain dominion over our intrinsic right to personal freedoms?
