Dr. Lise Van Sustern – Forensic Psychiatrist


This interview was recorded in March of this year and broadcast to my listeners in New York City and Sacramento. As you know, I live in New York City and in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, I thought it was important to share it with you. Today’s conversation is all about Global Warming and the emotional and psychological impact of natural disasters that psychiatrists believe cannot be overlooked. Please continue to pray for the people in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut who have lost family members, homes and communities, who are without many of the necessities that we take for granted. This week on TALK! with AUDREY: Forensic Psychiatrist,DR. LISE VAN SUSTERN joins me to talk about the psychological effects of Global Warming. A team of psychiatrists is warning in a new study a climate that is likely to be unstable will cost the U.S. dearly in health costs and overwhelm the mental health system, adding significant costs to the already $317 billion in annual mental health care expenditures and lost productivity in the U.S. the report says. If climate change is not curtailed, extreme weather conditions like flooding, drought and sea level rise will steeply increase the incidence of mental and social disorders. As a result, 220 million people, are likely to experience direct adverse effects, including psychological distress from climate-related events, especially vulnerable are children, the elderly and the 60 million people with pre-existing mental health conditions.


Frank Bailey: Author of Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin

This week on TALK! with AUDREY: Joining Audrey Adams on the show this week is trusted “Insider” FRANK BAILEY, the author of BLIND ALLEGIANCE TO SARAH PALIN. He was close to Palin during her gubernatorial campaign, throughout her term as governor of Alaska, and during her vice presidential run with John McCain. Bailey shared Palin’s stated political and religious views, believing she would be the best thing that ever happened to the State of Alaska and potentially the White House. In his role, he had unfettered access to Palin and shares surprising information about how she dealt with staff, with perceived “enemies,” and the discrepancy between what she said and what she did.

BLIND ALLEGIANCE is a up-close view of Sarah Palin from an inner-circle confidant. Unmasking the truth about one of the most notorious political figures of our time, it is the story of one man’s slow drift from his most cherished beliefs to his ultimate redemption.
