(Thread) Another week and another @MedTwitThisWeek #medthread. As a reminder, this is not all inclusive. It's a jumping off point. A continuation of the discussions from the week that I found interesting including conferences, #Tweetiorials and tributes. #medttw #FOAMed
2/ Conference Bonanza! Since last week, several amazing conferences took place (or just started). Each conference has their own hashtags and flavors of #SoMe. Here are some highlights...
3/ @jenreadlynn was at #midwesthospmed and did a great job of distilling @MelBreggs' talk on inpatient management of alcohol withdrawal.

Thread on how #inclusion, or lack thereof, affects #Wellbeing:

⚠️: upcoming #vulnerability moment

Do you ever feel Iike you don’t belong in the spaces you occupy?
I do.
The feeling is isolating & discouraging.

The reasons why are complex, complicated. /1
#medtwitter #burnout
I will confess here that being in #dermatology and in #academia magnifies these feelings.

Being courageous, stepping outside comfort zones, making your voice heard... it’s good, necessary, but the way you’re perceived and received matters. It has impact.

It’s complicated.

The cycle of self-confidence can be a positive or negative one, and often starts early in youth, affected by things such as parental upbringing, privilege, etc.

That cycle can build on itself, and have huge implications for one’s professional and personal wellbeing.

This is one of the most controversial videos we've ever posted but if you have an open mind you'll know she speaks 100% truth.

It starts with indoctrination and education...

"The first modern human beings that evolved on this earth were Black women...& every human being on the face of the earth today has the memory of those Black women's genetic structure in their genes. We don't want to admit that, but that's the way it is..." - #JaneElliott

Finishing up, see another pt’s e mail & message on desk phone

Need 2finish up w pt in front of me, but odd message left in both places

How many of you have wished you could take an #ImplicitBias class w/ @DrQuinnCapers4? Then come along with me as I take his class! 🤓👨🏽‍🏫
#ImplicitBias is NOT racism! Remember: racism is an EXPLICIT experience, implicit biases are subtle ways in which all of us are subconsciously primed to behave in different circumstances.
TAKE HOME MESSAGE #1 “Be aware of priming and your blind spots. Laser-sharp focus is not always a good thing.”

1/ "The ordinary response to atrocities is to banish them from consciousness. Certain violations of the social compact are too terrible to utter aloud: this is the meaning of the word 'unspeakable'."

~Dr Judith Herman, "Trauma & Recovery", opening sentences.
2/ "Remembering and telling the truth about terrible events are prerequisites both for the restoration of the social order and for the healing of individual victims."

~Dr. Judith Herman, "Trauma & Recovery"

#prerequisites
3/ "The conflict between the will to deny horrible events & the will to proclaim them aloud is the central dialectic of psychological trauma ... Witnesses as well as victims are subject to the dialectic of trauma."

~Dr. Judith Herman, "Trauma and Recovery"
