life aftera brain injury
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a severe intracranial injury caused by a violent blow to the skull. During TBI the brain is impacted by severe force, damaging the active brain cells and tearing delicate brain nerves, thus increasing the risk of internal bleeding in the brain. TBI is generally caused due to head-on collisions, skull fracture, etc. However, the intensity and aftermath of brain injury depend on which part of the brain is injured. [More]

Managing Motivation When Dealing with Depression

managing motivation when dealingwith depression
Having a bout of depression in whatever form that takes, can take a toll on a person’s level of motivation. Sometimes it is not even a lack of motivation, the individual may want very much to get things accomplished, to mark things off of a list, or to meet a deadline. However, depression often makes even the smallest task or responsibility seem impossible.

The Dynamics of Abusive Relationships and Victim Recantation

the dynamicsof abusive relationshipsand victim recantation
The psychological dynamics of abusive relationships are complex, and sometimes difficult to understand. Theories like Battered Woman Syndrome help give us a framework to understand what victims feel and experience. It helps us understand why victims sometimes recant their stories, support men who abuse them, and stay in dangerous relationships. Understanding these dynamics and the reasons victims behave the way they do also enables counselors and advocates to more effectively help victims and their children stay safe, and hopefully escape abusive situations.

Traumatic Death - The Hardest to Reconcile

“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. I am not afraid, but the sensation is like being afraid. The same fluttering in the stomach, the same restlessness, the yawning. I keep on swallowing… Perhaps more strictly, like suspense. Or like waiting: just hanging about waiting for something to happen. It gives life a permanently provisional feeling.” C.S. Lewis

recognizingand treating mental healthin children
Many children struggle with mental illness. However, unlike adults, the symptoms are different and can be more difficult to recognize. Sometimes parents are unaware of the warning signs of mental illness in children, and if it is recognized, they may not know who to turn to. Mental health issues affect children in school, at home and in the community, and left untreated can cause delays in development in those domains. [More]

The Importance of Self-Advocacy in Mental Health Recovery

the importanceof self advocacyin mental health recovery
Many times in the course of receiving mental health care, an individual may feel like things are not going well, or that they are not receiving the treatment that is most beneficial. However, those same individuals may feel like they are unable to question the mental health professionals who are treating them. Additionally, a person may not have the energy or desire to take steps to demand better care and will go along with whatever treatment that they are receiving. This is especially true in the beginning stages of diagnosis and recovery. [More]
