My guest today is Dr Kimberley Carder. Dr Carder is a clinical psychologist who is developing her career around the education and treatment of mental health disorders. She is a BJJ purple belt, and has fought professionally in MMA, taking the win as the underdog in the first professional women's MMA bout in Hong Kong.
In this conversation, we explore Dr Carders experiences competing as a woman in the combat sports arena, her PsyD thesis which looked into the subjective experiences reported by users of sensory deprivation tanks, her time as a special needs teacher, and her research into other alternative therapies for mental illness. Enjoy!
