Coming to Terms with Your Teenager's Coming of Age

18. April 2014 05:55 by Casey Truffo | Comments

comingto termswith your teenagers comingof age
The time when your teenager moves toward adulthood is an important time; however, it can be among the most difficult for a child AND their parents. Books, music, and movies many times refer to the theme of coming of age and relay the challenges associated in the transition. For families, this is a most emotional time because parents often are faced with disappointment and broken hearts as they feel their child no longer needs them, while their teenager is separating from them and developing new social circles. And although most teenagers are excited about this time in their lives, some are saddened or miss the safety that they had in their childhoods. [More]

binge drinking a socially acceptable addiction
Addictions come in many forms. However, drinking to the point of intoxication on the weekends is often considered socially acceptable, especially among young adults and college kids. In fact, many consider it a rite of passage to adulthood. Over 50% of the alcohol consumed in the US is from binge drinking.

Let it Go or Let Them Know? When to Speak Up

15. April 2014 05:55 by Casey Truffo | Comments

letit goor let them know whento speak up
There are a multitude of reasons why people remain silent, even when something in a relationship is really bothering them. Maybe you dislike conflict. You think you score points by always saying the right thing. Or maybe you have a tendency to downplay your own concerns, because living with them is easier than risking offending your partner or even making them angry and causing tension between the two of you.

Obesity: The Emotional Connection

14. April 2014 05:55 by LuAnn Pierce | Comments

obesity the emotional connection second picture
One of the greatest ironies about human behavior is that deprivation and overindulgence often result in similar outcomes. Children who grow up without enough – food, love, structure and safety – often fill the void with food once it is available. Some of these people become obese over time, but even those who do not may overeat or misuse food for emotional reasons. Recent information from the Food Research and Action Center cites several studies that suggest that food insecurity (people who do not have enough food to eat on a regular basis) and overweight and/or obesity coexist in as many as 1/3 of women.

Surviving chronic pain. Making stress your ally and not an enemy

survivingchronicpain makingstressyourallyandnotanenemy
We've been told that stress is harmful to our health, that it increases our pain levels but what if that was a misconception? What if there was a way of making stress work for us rather than against us. It's all about perception. Stress is only harmful to us when we believe it is.

Do You Have a Workplace "Spouse"?

11. April 2014 05:55 by Casey Truffo | Comments

do you havea workplace spouse
You don’t have to be a therapist to know that becoming close to a colleague can potentially lead to becoming more than just friends. One needs to be aware of the danger signs, especially if they’re already in a committed relationship (with someone outside the office, that is). To be clear, it is possible to work closely with a person of the opposite sex without crossing the line into intimacy or a full-blown affair. The key is setting boundaries and sticking to them.

older adults alcoholand drug issues
Talking with your older loved one about his/her use of alcohol and/or drugs may be difficult for some. Many people become defensive when asked about their alcohol or drug use, and often do not tell the truth. This is especially true for someone who has been approached by people about drinking in the past. Here are some guidelines to help you address these issues in a way that is more likely to be heard as concern for their well being, rather than a desire to control them. [More]
