Culture Trip asked Dr. Michele Leno about the latest Netflix hit, 13 Reasons Why, April 2017
“Witnessing a teen commit suicide on television has the potential to evoke significant anxiety and depression in any child that has the capacity to understand what is occurring. While some children may experience only brief distress, others will have a longer recovery. It is not wise to shelter children, but we must be careful not to overexpose. A psychologically stable child is not likely to become suicidal after witnessing the act. However, a child that has already contemplated suicide may feel more hopeless, which often precedes suicide. Regardless of the child’s mental health, discussion and/or debriefing may be necessary.”

Dr. Leno in the National Psychologist, October 2017
What would you be doing right now if social media did not exist? There are still some that have not succumbed to the dynamic world of relationship building, sharing, following, messaging, promoting, etc. via social media. But a majority of people (81%!) have at least one social media account. In fact many people have come to prefer this method of interacting over traditional, in person, face-to-face socializing. As a psychologist and social media user, I question the overwhelming fascination with social media. Some of us remember life before social media, though the recollection may be murky at best.

Dr. Leno in Everyday Health, February 2018
Dr. Leno talks about cognitive dissonance with Everyday Health!
Psychologists call the cognitive dissonance we experience in decision-making the “free-choice paradigm.” When it comes to making decisions, usually we’re not presented with one perfect option, which means we have to weigh one imperfect option against another imperfect option (there are pluses and minuses to both), which creates dissonance. You experience that internal conflict as your brain tries to balance those two (or more) choices, Dr. Leno says.
Dr. Michele Leno is available for media interviews to discuss psychological concerns, mental health and stress. Dr. Leno is based in the metropolitan Detroit area, but can travel for media. For media inquiries, contact email@example.com.
