Ride Of Your Life Interview with Dr. Byram Karasu - Psychology and God
Dr. Byram Karasu is the chairman of the Behavioral Sciences Department at the Albert Einstein Institute in New York, and Chief Psychiatrist at the Montefiore Medical Center. His decades of research and interaction with people carrying different kinds of emotional and mental burden has led him to a simple conclusion: that it is only by striving to be godly and living a spiritual life that one can be truly happy. He established a new and fascinating branch of behavioral sciences research and practice called Spiritual Psychotherapy. He has also taken his new message beyond the psychology and psychiatry community to reach the general public with a series of best-selling books.
The Spirit of Happiness Modern science and medicine have already accepted the unity of mind and body. Primary physicians talk with their patients about emotional stress, and psychologists and coaches talk with their clients about nutrition and exercise. However, in the triad of mind-body-spirit, spirituality is yet to become a part of the science and practice of modern medicine. Dr. Karasu's work makes the leap into spirituality from a scientific perspective. His books talk about God explicitly and propose a path towards inner peace and happiness. The underlying values and ideas overlap with some concepts of positive psychology, and with the different religious traditions: kindness, generosity, and above all - love. However, unlike some of the fields of research that only flirt with religion, Dr. Karasu's work forms a unique marriage between scientific method and the leap of faith into believing in the divine.

"Don't say, "There's no reason for you to be depressed," " says T. Byram Karasu, MD, chair of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. " Just be there. It's tempting to try to talk a loved one out of his or her feelings of sadness and despair, but it's more important to show your support. Just being present sends the message that you care. " Be alert to worsening symptoms. "If the depressed person is sleeping longer or continues to lose weight for more than three weeks, he or she may need to be hospitalized," says Dr. Karasu. Watch for self-destructive behaviors, such as drinking too much alcohol or accumulating a large number of tranquilizers or other drugs that could be used in a suicide attempt. "Don't be afraid to ask a person if he or she is considering suicide," he adds.
