Query: World Kindness Day is next Monday so I am covering a story on what it means to be kind for CNN’s health desk. Questions include but are not limited to:

  1. What is the science of kindness, what does it do for others and yourself?
  2. What is the difference between being kind versus nice and why does it matter?
  3. How can we be more kind and what actions can we do right now?

Requirements: I am seeking psychologists who can discuss the science of kindness and how it affects us and others or other qualified/relevant experts in kindness. Must be available for a 20-30 minute phone call to answer questions. I am working on a short deadline so please list credentials and availablity for a call.

  • Deadline: 2:00 PM EST – 11 November

Query: Hi! I’m a news writer for the, and I’m looking specifically for licensed psychologists or therapists to talk about protestor reactions to the Israel-Hamas conflict, specifically:

  1. What makes protestors want to rip down posters/what’s the psychological significance of the posters and ripping them down?
  2. How do you think social media use is affecting the conflict here and/or overseas?
  3. There has been a large reaction from some of the far left denying the events of October 7th – can someone explain why that is? What’s the psychological reaction behind the disbelief, or the gullibility of people consuming this kind of propaganda?
  4. What can be done to support Jewish communities in times of antisemitism? What can be done to support Muslim communities at a time of Islamophobia? Is it better to avoid talking about the conflict in areas, or would it be helpful for workplaces/schools/groups to reach out or address some of these issues?

Requirements: Licensed therapists and psychologists. If you only have expertise on one or a few of the questions, that’s okay, I’m looking for multiple sources! and if you have specific expertise in one of these areas or a really detailed answer, please flag that as well, and I will email you.
