30. March 2015 05:55 by Juliana Fruhling,MA-MFT, RCC | Comments

ageing
Midlife, also known as middle-age, is by far the longest period of a person's life, due to a recent increase in lifespan thanks to healthier lifestyles and advances in medical care, but sadly it is commonly depicted in a negative light in our culture, especially during the post-parental period of midlife (McGoldrick, Carter & Garcia-Preto, 2011). Midlife crises, menopause, empty-nest syndrome, these are some of the things we think of when we think of midlife, which lends support to the negative view we have of it, and of aging in general.

To keep a relationship happy and peaceful, it’s important for couples to understand their beliefs about money, learn how to talk about money, and learn how to align their financial goals. If you can do these things, you will be well on your way to having one less thing to argue about! [More]

When Differences Collide - The Why of Beliefs and Opinions

28. March 2015 05:55 by Karen Allen,MS, LMHC, CAMS, CHt | Comments

diversity
There is a war being waged in America today – a war spanning the course of American history pitting American against American, and human against human. Disrespect for others has escalated to the point of hatred and become pernicious in its capacity to destroy individuals, families, and social entities. While the judicial system can legislate guidelines governing behavior, it is incapable of controlling human thoughts. According to Judeo-Christian thought, a person’s unfiltered thoughts emanate from the heart and are indicative of personality and behavior. (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV) [More]

25. March 2015 08:16 by Sharon Heller, Phd | Comments

autisticbirthday
Birthday parties are meant to be special days for a child. But for a 6-year-old Florida boy, the day was devastating. Though Glenn Buratti's mother Ashlee Buratti invited his entire class over for a party, none of the 16 kids showed up. Glenn is autistic. Children on the autistic spectrum have great difficulty in socializing and making friends and often feel isolated and alone – and especially for birthday parties where no one shows. [More]

As a result of this, many techniques and models have been created in order to assist patients in maintaining the clinical progress that they have achieved in their typical once a week session. Many providers have often wondered, “What are better ways to keep patients engaged between sessions or the ‘off time?” [More]
