Out of all of the psychiatric illnesses that I experience on a daily basis at the hospital, schizophrenia is probably the most feared and the most misunderstood. I want to explain the best of what we know about psychiatry and science when it comes to schizophrenia… medication helps, treatment helps, and many go on to lead relatively normal lives. . #schizophrenia #psychosis #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #behavioralhealth #stigmafree #psychiatry #psychology #medstudenteducation #CME #psychiatryresident #nyitcom #nyitcomalumni

Yes! It’s called “emotional labor”! Most people don’t realize that when we “fake” our emotions we engage in the sociological phenomenon called emotional labor that can exhaust us mentally! And yes... unfortunately there IS as correlation with increased alcohol use! We can avoid this though! Be aware, maintain as much autonomy at work as you can, remember the “meaning” behind your work, try and connect with clients and coworkers, talk with peers about it... we don’t have to smile all the time! It’s ok!

Oh boy... I have opened a can of worms and I’m on a roll ... yesterday got through Albert Camu “The Outsider” and today Jean Paul Sartre ... how did it take me all of these years before I devoted the time to comprehend thinkers that can put, what I feel, think and know into words better than I can! ... . . I encourage everyone to put down the phones and tablets, pick up a good philosophy text that resonates with you and dive in... deep. Process, think, explore, question... exercise your mind with the sometimes uncomfortable questions of what means to be alive. . . “Consciousness is what allows the world to exist. Without it, there would be no objects, no trees, no rivers, no rocks, just be. Consciousness is always intentional, it is consciousness of something. Consciousness is the world and made it happen as a world conscience.” SARTRE . . #philosophy #Meaning #life #existentialism #sartre #jeanpaulsartre #albertcamus #knowing #questioning #meaninglessness #experience #learn #read #Reading

What an amazing experience attending the premier of “The Irishman” at the one and only Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, sitting next to some of my childhood movie mentors and idols! How cool! . #premier #TheIrishman #mannschinesetheater #hollywood #moviebiz

Great show at the @gramercytheatre NYC last night. Pay attention to the lyrics...perfect for a rainy night in NYC! Love of live music has always been an important part of my life... love It all... heavy metal, rock, acoustic, indie songwriters.... ALL awesome in their own way of expressing emotion with music! wanted to share. . . “The rain falls over your face Drowned in this place too long Well I know that the sun shines and fights for your day You hear it say be strong, and let it go Just keep holding on Ohhhhhhh Soon you'll see that you belong. You belong, you already belong, you belong” -Joshua Radin . . #joshuaradin #joshuaradinconcert #music #lovemusic #livemusic #psychiatry #psychology #therapy

It’s a James Taylor kind of night... “Sweet Baby James” by JT...when I was a kid.. this song always made everything ok. Now... it’s by far one of my favorite “adult lullaby’s” and yes... it still makes everything ok when times are tough. I think it’s the simplicity of the lyrics and the visuals... what great song writing! James Taylor will always be one of my favorite singer songwriters and always fun to play... #jamestaylor #guitar #lullaby #fingerstyleguitar #serenade #acousticguitar

🤘🏼my oldest son (11) practicing on his new flat black @officialjacksonguitars 🤘🏼 . He reminds me so much of myself it’s actually scary 😱. . As a child psychiatrist it is easy to take work home, pathologize, analyze... I remind myself daily to let them be who they want to be... explore, find themselves, develop confidence through overcoming adversity, just “bumper bowl” ... guide them down the lane at their own pace with small “nudges” here and there to keep em on track... and leading by example 😉always always always letting them know (and showing) unconditional love and acceptance. . #dad #father #parenting #guitar #music #identity #kids #childpsychiatry #childpsychology

My last patient of the day... OCD of course... he can’t stop obsessing... catnip stat! When I use the “home office” for concierge psychiatric services I always have to be sure to ask patients if they have “cat allergies” ! Never know who is gonna stop in...this is “Boo”! . . . #cats #catsofinstagram #blackcat #blackcatsofinstagram #psychiatry

Dinner with the CEO of Medcircle Doug Colbeth. A sincere honor... FYI, if you’ve ever used “Internet Explorer” (spyglass) it’s because of this man 😎just sayin. Incredible story of success. Always a pleasure and cant say enough about the sincerity, authenticity and humility of Mr Colbeth, not to mention his contributions to mental health awareness! Truly inspiring ⚡️I am of course humbled to be a physician contributor on his most recent venture with MedCircle. What an amazing and productive trip to San Diego! @medcircleofficial @drsportelli #mentalhealtheducation #mentalhealthawareness #stigmafree #doctors #medicine #psychiatrist #makingadifference #behavioralhealtheducation

Over 60,000 dead in one year... I see it, I treat it ...I’ve lived it ...devastating. The opioid crisis is real.

As a Psychiatrist, (Medical doctor specializing in behavioral health) I do it because I love it, It’s a calling, fascination with the neuroscience and psychology, a personal passion and to see and experience the change we can make for the better. It is nice to see that we are starting to see economics leaning toward the awareness of necessity for good behavioral healthcare providers. . #psychiatry #psychiatryresident #medstudent #medstudents #residents #psychology #behavioralhealth #career #medicalschool #mentalhealthawareness

As Doctors with noted high “burnout” we have to pay attention to our own level of “life satisfaction” and its necessary to have a well rounded lifestyle if we want to to continue with the best medical care. I LOVE what I do in medicine (Psychiatry) and wouldn’t change a thing, but I always encourage pursuit of other passions, hobbies and goals. I sincerely find that it makes me a better doctor and more “present” when I’m with patients when I be sure to also take the time to ride my dirtbike, surf, play my guitar, do media work, and most recently ... make movies with Monaco films! . . Check out the website... so exciting! Some amazing projects in the works with incredible actors and directors on board! Serendipity and fate... I’ve always been into the “arts” and filmmaking allows this passion to flourish! . #doctorlife #doctorlifestyle #premed #nyitcom #moviemaking #movieproduction #filmmaking #psychiatry #mentalhealth #burnoutrecovery #hobbies #passion #career #art #goals

Stand up to bullying! Tune in to @dranddiva show with @drstevesalvatore and Kimberly Locke as we speak to Dianne Grossman of “Mallory’s Army” who lost her young daughter to tragic suicide after unrelenting bullying by her peers. . . 160,000 kids avoid school daily due to bullying and fear... its a leading cause of academic problems, social anxiety, depression, self injury and suicide. Bullying behavior is a broken and maladaptive “interpersonal problem solving issue” where the bully uses domination, intimidation, fear and abuse to achieve personal empowerment. We need to teach our kids kindness, respect and empathy... and always be the first one to set the example. . . There is a solution... education, empowerment through kindness and accountability! Thank you for having me on the show! . @dranddiva @drsportelli #psychiatry #psychology #childpsychology #childpsychiatry #teachempathy #teachkindness #teachrespect #setbyexample #psychresidents #medstudents #bullying #stopbullying #bullyingawareness #nyitcom #nyit #nyitcomalumni #kids #ourchildren #CyberBullying #mallorysarmy #stopcyberbullying

“Appear merciful, faithful, humane, religious, upright, and to be so, but with a mind so framed that should you require not to be so, you may be able and know how to change to the opposite.”. MACHIAVELLI . . Sociopathy in a nutshell... . . . Re-reading “The Prince” by Niccolò Machiavelli. I’m intrigued by the sociopathic, narcissistic strategy that he conveys. I still see these traits in people today, and it’s a personal challenge to withhold judgment and look at the picture objectively. It’s frustrating because I sincerely believe that although Machiavelli knew these strategies to be effective for personal gain “superficially”, he also knew that it doesn’t lead to happiness. With quotes such as ““victories are never secure without some respect” and “I’d like to teach them the way to hell,” he told a friend toward the end of his life, “so they can steer clear of it.” Unfortunately, I think people may still think it’s “powerful” to be shrewd and manipulative. . . . I’ve come to feel that I have gained personal power by letting go of the illusion of control (not to be confused with giving up), simply knowing what’s “controllable” and what’s truly not. “Going with the flow”, “Rolling with the punches” (fill in the cliche) has given me an immense sense of happiness and comfort in my life. It’s a powerful thing to be able to “let go” comfortably. . . #psychology #psychiatry #personality #narcissist #narcissism #personalitydisorders #sociopath #letgo #bekind #happiness

Instant and lasting smile after I’ve caught a few amazing waves at a local surf session ... glad this flat spell is over NJ! . The ocean has always been healing for me. Sometimes I get down when the superficial stuff starts to take precedent. The ocean reminds me of what’s truly important. It’s instant meditation, instant insight, mystical and spiritual all at the same time. Get out there. Feel it. 🤙🏻 . Don’t forget to step away from the “monopoly game” of life... 😉 enjoy reality for a bit. . . #summer #surfing #happy #life #lovelife #surfer #eastcoast #ocean #meditation #inspiration

Excited to get back to the “Ducati family”... picking her up soon... however, I am always cautious of the typical “Hedonic Treadmill” of life... remember, it’s not the “object” that creates a sense of happiness or fulfillment, Its the experience. I ride motorcycles for the thrill of being alive... it plants me in the present, it allows me to appreciate the sights, smells, wind, weather and intricacies of the environment that we would otherwise fleetingly pass... the smell of hot asphalt, hyper acute senses noticing every crack, and imperfection in the road... every change in the temperature of the wind, every drop of rain... . #motorcycle #motorcycles #riding #ducati #ducatimonster #carpediem #lovelife #livelife #livelifetothefullest #hedonictreadmill #thrill #beherenow
