sextrafficing
Sex trafficking is one of the most complex, under-investigated, and misunderstood issues today (Estes & Wiener, 2001). Not to be confused with willful prostitution, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines sex trafficking as "the recruitment, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age" (Kerry, 2013).

Growing Body of Research Suggests Memory Loss is Not Necessary

25. February 2015 05:55 by Dr. C. Wayne Winkle,Phd | Comments

memory
Nearly everyone has at some time forgotten where they put their keys or lost their car in a crowded Wal-Mart parking lot, or even found themselves in a room wondering, “Was I coming in here for something, or going out?” For people in their sixties or later, these events are commonplace. They’re called “Senior Moments”, and they can be very embarrassing. Most people ex... [More]

Neurofeedback as a Treatment for Alcohol and Substance Abuse

23. February 2015 05:55 by Charity Finch,MS, LPC Intern, CRC, BCN | Comments

addictionneurofeedback
Neurofeedback, or qEEG neurotherapy, records the individual’s unique brainwave patterns and utilizes auditory and visual feedback to train brainwaves to a normalized pattern (Quinn, Bodenheimer-Davis, & Koch, 2004). Alcoholics and illicit substance users show similar abnormal brainwave patterns outside the range of individuals without dependence upon alcohol or illicit substances.

onlinedating
Online dating sites are a popular place to seek relationships. While the majority of couples still meet offline at work, school, places of worship, bars and social events, today’s couples are almost as likely to meet on-line as they are to meet in any of these offline venues.

The Bodacious World of Psychotherapy in 2015

20. February 2015 05:55 by Mary Horn, Psy.D. | Comments

psychotherapy
Psychotherapy in the 21st century has changed its face. Growing from the early days of psychoanalysis and behavioral therapies, it was once primarily for the severely mentally ill. People who needed and entered therapy were usually viewed as “crazy”. Today, psychology in general, permeates nearly every important field.

The Atrocities of Boko Haram and Isis ARE Happening in America

19. February 2015 05:55 by Tracy Busse, MA, LPC | Comments

isis
In the last year, the chilling actions of ISIS and Boko Haram have shocked many. Americans have questioned their barbaric practices and lack of regard for women. It is hard to imagine something like that happening in America. As stories of survivors are released, hearts sink when they hear of women and children being forced into marriage and raped by militants (Those, 2014). But what if these same injustices were happening in the United States? Perhaps they are. [More]

Psychological Impact of Severe Food Allergies

18. February 2015 05:55 by Dr. C. Wayne Winkle,Phd | Comments

allergies
It may be that the effects of food allergies are greater on parents than on the children who suffer from them. Parents feel they must be on guard every minute to protect their children from possibly fatal reactions to foods, substances human beings need to survive. This constant vigilance wears down the strongest parent. This can lead to significant stress. Stressed parents may respond in ways that cause stress on their children. [More]
