James Kimmel, Jr., a Lecturer in Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine, focuses on the intersections of law, neuroscience, psychology, spirituality, violence, and addiction. He is a leader in integrating law and psychology to prevent violence, resolve conflicts, restore peace, and help individuals suffering from mental illness in the criminal justice system.   We are living in a glorious world of possibilities and advancements, but we are also living with uncertainty, loss, anger, deep social divisions and increasing talk of revenge and retribution for a wide range of grievances. This situation led Dr. Mike to think about our emotional well-being. When stress and anger enter our lives, they can have a severe effect on our health. James and Dr. Mike address the negative physical effects that anger, and revenge have on the brain. Research says they are just as addictive as opioids, making them extremely difficult to release. Now more than ever we need tools and insights to bring back peace and balance. We talk about what approach we can take to rid our brain of grievances, anger and vengeance and restore a deep state of emotional well-being. Then James takes Dr. Mike through the steps for the non-justice system to help him release the pain he feels from the loss of a friendship.
