#22 The DR5 Model
The DR5 model In this episode, Dr. Zab Johnson, Dr. Al’ai Alvarez, and Dr Preston Cline will break down the DR5 model using a Trauma Resuscitation scenario. The DR5 represents the latest version of the original MCTI Learning Diagnostic Tool (The LERP and then the DR4) that was developed through a collaborative inquiry process between the Mission Critical Team Institute, Naval Special Warfare, and the Wharton Neuroscience Initiative (UPENN), to improve the training for hostage rescue teams. This version was specifically developed for use in medical resuscitation. As always, it is designed as a tool to help Instructor Cadre improve performance within immersion events and is currently being utilized by teams worldwide. Initially created to move past the all too common “You Suck! Suck Less!” instructor/student interaction by providing instructors a more precise language to overcome the Tacit Knowledge Transfer Problem . This is the problem that experts face when trying to explain or articulate their expertise (e.g., Having the skill to ride a bike versus explaining that skill to another). Using research from Psychology, Education, and Neuroscience, the DR5 model breaks down the immersion event into 5 distinct areas of Detection, Recognition, Reaction, Response, Reset, and Reflection. While neurologically, these stages do not behave sequentially , the model provides Instructor Cadres a mechanism for specificity  to diagnose better and mediate learning within and after immersion events. Guests: Dr. Elizabeth (Zab) Johnson Executive Director, Wharton Neuroscience Initiative Senior Fellow, Wharton Neuroscience Initiative Elizabeth (Zab) Johnson is the executive director and senior fellow of the Wharton Neuroscience Initiative. Her research focuses on vision and visual behavior. Her work spans physiological approaches in the retina and early visual cortex to using eye tracking to investigate how human observers look and navigate through the world, how these processes unfold over time and with experience, and the role of social cognition and decision making in these processes. She is an expert on color vision. She received her PhD in Neural Science at New York University. Al'ai Alvarez, MD, FACEP, FAAEM (https://twitter.com/alvarezzzy (@alvarezzzy)) Assistant Residency Program Director, Emergency Medicine Clinical Assistant Professor - Co-Chair, WellMD Physician Wellness Forum Stanford University School of Medicine Al'ai is a clinical assistant professor of Emergency Medicine (EM) and an associate residency program director (APD) at the Stanford Emergency Medicine Residency Program. He is the APD for Residency Process Improvement (Quality and Clinical Operations), Recruitment (Diversity), and Well-being (Inclusion). Dr. Alvarez focuses on the intersectionality and interdependence of wellbeing with performance improvement on patient experience, quality and patient safety, diversity, equity and inclusion, and medical education.

#12 Solo Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker and Combat Veteran, Trey Free on: "Making decisions and suppressing demons."
This is my conversation with combat veteran and Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker, Trey Free. Among many other things, Trey reminds us in this conversation that "Quitting is a mindset, not a decision!" *A reminder that anything Trey says here are his thoughts, and his thoughts alone. He is not representing his former or current organization.* Trey is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, then Air Force special operations Combat Controller, a guy I consider an expert in selection, assessment, and training. Trey's a huge part of the MCTI community. He's a dad, a husband, an Appalachian Trail through-hiker, and great American. In this conversation, we discuss selecting and training chess players rather than those who play checkers. - building the race car we need today, rather than fighting the last fight - when Trey realized he needed to change his thinking around professional development, and how to select and train Tier 1 operators effectively - we discuss how challenging it is when as instructors and trainers we try to push/progress training when the only experience we have (the only experience anyone has) is our own. - we talk about moving away from selecting only on tactics and skills, but selecting and training to "Characteristics" such as: - Problem Solving - Interpersonal Effectiveness - Communication - Drive - Stress Tolerance (cognitive overload) We also discuss why training is for certainty and education is for uncertainty - we discuss mental toughness and Trey tells us his 15 categories of what he believes you can control, and need to keep front-sight-focused upon - we talk about peak performance and getting over perceived failures - as it pertains to quitting hard things, Trey talks about "quitting" as a mindset, not a decision. - we talk about residue and transition from the military You can find Trey on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCKgxH-Ei-JA7fPn4Om3p8w (EarlyRiser71), and see his book release promo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IC7INYLo3I (It's Time to Choose).
