KEY POINTS

In “Psychology Behind the Headlines,” hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest therapist Yolanda Cortez discuss the shocking case of Paul Volkmann, a former family doctor now in prison for his role in the opioid epidemic.

Narcissism and Power

Narcissistic individuals may be drawn to positions of authority, like doctors, and can use that power to manipulate others.

Signs of Gaslighting

Be wary if a doctor downplays your concerns, dismisses your symptoms, or makes you feel like your problems aren’t real.

Patient Empowerment

It’s essential to advocate for yourself in medical settings. Trust your instincts and seek a second opinion if you feel uncomfortable.
