ABC News Podcast Features Psych Congress Faculty

November 16, 2017

Two members of the Psych Congress Steering Committee have been featured on an ABC News podcast which grew out of a newsman's newfound interest in meditation. 

Psych Congress cochair Charles Raison, MD, and Steering Committee member Vladimir Maletic, MD, MS, spoke with ABC News correspondent Dan Harris for his "10% Happier" podcast. Drs. Raison and Maletic cowrote The New Mind-Body Science of Depression, a book published earlier this year.

Their conversation covered the book as well as several of the most-discussed issues in psychiatry today, such as meditation, depression, and psychedelics. 

Harris was led to meditation after having a panic attack live on Good Morning America in 2004. In the years since, he wrote the book 10% Happier, started the "10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics" app, and the weekly podcast.

The podcast, including the episode featuring Drs. Raison and Maletic, can be found at:

Dr. Raison is the Mary Sue and Mike Shannon Chair for Healthy Minds, Children & Families and Professor, Human Development and Family Studies, School of Human Ecology and Professor, Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Maletic is Clinical Professor, Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Science, at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Greenville.
