Celebrating 50 Sessions with “50 First Dates”

June 15, 2023

Guess who’s turning 50?! Well, technically the podcast turned 3 years old last month, but today we are launching our 50th session!  Join Dr. Sam & Dr. Fran as they put 50 First Dates on the couch! In this modern, rom-com classic starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, they explain different types of amnesia and estimate which type of amnesia Lucy may be experiencing. Is Lucy’s inability to remember her boyfriend Henry accurate? Would you be surprised to learn that some of the examples of amnesia portrayed in the movie are based on real-life experiences?  To understand amnesia, the doctors also briefly explain how our memory works. They break down the different stages and types of memory. Finally, they also review what support and treatment for someone with amnesia may look like. Would doctors recommend tricking a loved one into re-living the same day over and over?  Wait, what were we just talking about? Listen to this week’s session to find out!
