Encore: MicroSkills for Self-Care & Prevention of Workplace Burnout

7/9/2024
Today, on New Legacy Radio, we are honored to be joined by Dr. Adaira Landry and Dr. Resa E. Lewiss, authors of the recently released book, MicroSkills: Small Actions, Big Impact. Dr. Landry and Dr. Lewiss bring a fresh approach to navigating career and workplace stress and share their experiences as emergency medicine physicians. MicroSkills offers a clear, guiding framework of how to take small, intentional steps toward the expertise or career you want to develop, and how to increase self-care to reduce overwhelm and prevent burnout, in the process. Workplace burnout continues to have an increasing and pervasively adverse impact on people around the globe. In 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared burnout to be an occupational phenomenon and further defined it as a syndrome resulting from chronic workplace stress. Workplace burnout rates vary by occupation and role and can be exacerbated by diverse life circumstances and organizational culture. One concerning example of the depth and prevalence of chronic occupational stress in the medical field. According to Medscape's 2024 physician burnout and depression report, almost half of physicians reported experiencing burnout in 2024. The highest rate of burnout was in emergency medicine (63%). The report was based on a Mercer survey taken by 9,200 physicians of different ages across 29-plus specialties. According to the survey data, specialties with the highest rates of burnout after emergency medicine include OB-GYN (53%), oncology (53%), pediatrics (51%) and family medicine (51%). What does this mean for the culture and business of work, individual practitioners, and employees going forward? How can we best navigate this today? Tune in live to learn how to immediately and effectively use MicroSkills for personal and professional self-care!

Encore Forging a New Pathway for Single Studies as a Global Discipline

7/2/2024
Tune in to New Legacy Radio today, and learn about the establishment of Single Studies as a global discipline, with today's guest, Dr. Craig Wynne. Dr. Wynne is the co-editor of the recently released, Singular Selves: An Introduction to Singles Studies. He also wrote the book How to be a Happy Bachelor and has published a number of articles on singlehood. As often discussed on this show, we recognize the ways pronatalism impacts individual reproductive and relationship experiences, amidst status quo thinking and assumptions, and biases experienced by those without children, and those who are unmarried, uncoupled, in diverse relationship structures, and those who are single. Singlism, a term coined by Dr. Bella DePaulo, defines the stigmatizing and negative stereotyping of and discrimination against adults, specifically because they are single. Dr. Wynne will speak to this, and a range of terminology reflecting individual and collective experiences of singlehood. He will also address the why of an intersectional, interdisciplinary global approach to Single Studies, as we consider the questions: How do we best examine the ways systemic, social, and media perspectives have influenced the understanding of singlehood? How can we change the impact of these influences on those who are single, and center the lived experiences of singlehood for greater social change? Join us for this and much more in today's show!

Encore Single Studies: Global Dimensions & Interdisciplinary Discourse

6/25/2024
The emergence of Single Studies as a discipline is both a welcome advancement in education and research and an acknowledgment of the millions of circumstantially single people and those who are single by choice. The ever-present and growing demographic of single people has long been subjected to a lack of understanding and pronatalist-driven, status-quo social stigmatization and discrimination through exclusion from equal rights and public policy considerations. This has led to inequitable and adverse social, economic, and political outcomes and unmeasured impact on single people. Joining the show today to discuss these matters and more, are Dr. Geoff MacDonald, Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Waterloo, and Dr. Elyakim Kislev, senior lecturer in the School of Public Policy and Governance at the Hebrew University, specializing in relationships, technology, loneliness, and singles studies. We will also share details of the 3rd International Singles Studies Conference, which will be held in person in Boston and virtually via Zoom on July 5, 2024, which they co-chair with Dr. Ketaki Chowkhani. Tune in to this in-depth conversation to learn more about the work of Dr. MacDonald and Dr. Kislev, and the upcoming conference!

Encore How Do Historical Narratives of Single Women Inform Us Today?

6/11/2024
People who are single and without children, comprise a growing, global demographic, and yet, these lived experiences remain largely unacknowledged vis-a-via the status quo. There is also a common tendency to perceive the emergence of single people without children, as being very recent. This perspective both eclipses historical literature depicting the lives and voices of single women, and furthers the invisibility of every day discrimination and inequity, based on reproductive identity and relationship status. What can we learn from these cultural narratives and the historic contexts in which they were written? Today, we are honored to be in conversation with Dr. Katherine Fama, who will share her in-depth work and perspectives on the historical narratives of single women in literature, and how these narratives relate and inform us today. Dr. Fama is the coeditor of Single Lives: Modern Women in Literature, Culture, and Film, and teaches in the School of English, Film, and Drama at University College Dublin. Tune in to learn more!

Encore Centering Single, Childfree Women of Color & Single Women in Film

5/28/2024
In today’s episode we will discuss the research initiatives of Kim Martinez Phillips, who is a PHD Candidate in Sociology. She is studying cultural representations of single women in film, and is currently interviewing single, never-married, childfree women of color, for her dissertation research. We welcome her representational insight and the valued experiences of interviewees. We will also touch on her recent research around the portrayal of single women in film. The vast, collective community of people without children includes all cultures, colors, genders, disabilities, neurodiversity, sexual preferences, languages, and geography. We are an integrally diverse community. As such, our work must reflect and continually evolve to center the layered and intersectional experiences and voices of our community; voices that counter and transcend the status quo, cultural, structural and systemic patterns of marginalization and exclusion. New Legacy Institute supports research and other expressions of narratives by those who have experienced the stories within these perspectives. We are grateful for and looking forward to learning more from the work of Kim Martinez Phillips, at this initial stage, and as it develops.

Encore Hysteria-The Chasm Between Patient Autonomy & Gynecological Care

3/19/2024
Whether it is your own experience, or that of someone you know, the dismissal of symptoms, minimization of pain, failure to diagnose or incorrect diagnoses, and other medical oversight have caused often irreparable physical issues, and prolonged pain and symptoms, in the gynecological world. The high incidents and often life-long impact of medical care, absent of patient autonomy, remains prevalent with respect to gynecological disorders, and continues to impact more lives, every day. How do we raise awareness of these realities, experienced by so many? How do we further educate ourselves, and hold the field of gynecology accountable, while inviting respect for patient autonomy, and compassionate care? Joining us today, is Rachael Jablo, creator of The Hysteria Project. Rachael is a chronically ill, queer, Jewish, Berlin-based US-American artist who works with photography, installation, collage and occasionally performance. Through The Hysteria Project, Rachael honors and visual recognizes the personal narratives of those living with and who have experienced gynecological disorders.

Encore When the Personal is Political What is our Responsibility?

2/27/2024
Despite the deeply personal nature of our reproductive experiences, women in particular, continue to face external restrictions, limiting or erasing our rights to bodily autonomy.

Work-Life Inclusion: Employee Experiences Across the Life Course

2/20/2024
How can organizations and human resource practitioners view employee life-work experiences, across the life-course? What new considerations might emerge through more dynamic frameworks that include the changing needs of employees throughout their work lives? For decades, research on Human Resources Management (HRM) frameworks has largely reflected approaches driven by the presumption of employee needs and experiences, based on status quo expectations. Workplace policies designed from these assumptions constitute employee privilege based on marital and parental status, and the unequal, inequitable treatment of historically marginalized groups. The emergence of EDI (Equity, Diversity, Inclusion)/DEIBAJ+ (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, Access, Justice & Beyond) frameworks has heightened awareness, and encouraged organizations to adopt more inclusive approaches to HR policy and organizational culture. However, HR perspectives most often do not take into account the needs of employees who live outside of status quo identities, whether at different life stages (as traditionally/socially presumed), or permanently. Our guests today will offer listeners in-depth perspectives around the need for and impact of multi-disciplinary HRM frameworks, which span the life-course. We will be in conversation with Dr. Krystal Wilkinson, co-editor of the 2024 book: 'Work-Life Inclusion: Broadening Perspectives Across the Life-Course' (Emerald Publishing), and Dr. Robin Hadley, who contributed to the book, and addresses the experiences of childless men in the workplace. We'll discuss the importance of these expanding perspectives for HR practitioners, the challenges of and possibilities for creating an inclusive workplace, and specific considerations for lesser acknowledged work-life realities.
