22. April 2015 05:55 by Karen Allen,MS, LMHC, CAMS, CHt | Comments

miltarykids
Why designate a month to recognize military children? What makes them any more special than neighborhood civilian children? Improving awareness of military family life and its associated stresses and sacrifices broadens the knowledge base of those who interact with military children but who may be unfamiliar with the nature of the sacrifices made by military children

21. April 2015 05:55 by Carol Campbell, M.A | Comments

tedcruz
Republican presidential contender Sen.Ted Cruz of Texas has officially tossed his hat into the ring in the race for the 2016 election, and there is nothing subtle about his style. Ted Cruz comes across as extremely direct and honest, bold and aggressive, fighting for what he sees as right. The stand he takes on virtually any issue can fairly be called uncompromising.

Nearly four years after September 11, 2001, an abstract was published online. Its title: The Impact of Terrorism on Brain and Behavior: What We Know and What We Need to Know.

It’s All In Who You Know: Why Your Support Matters

17. April 2015 05:55 by Dr. Irina Kerzhnerman,Phd | Comments

support
It seems to be common sense that having someone to lean on in a time of need would be a good thing. And, not surprisingly, social psychological and clinical psychological research has confirmed that. But, in delving into the scientifically based questions of how, why, when and what kind of social support is most beneficial to people in times of stress, mental illness or well-being, social scientists have identified the truly important role that our relationships with others play in our psychological and physical health. When it comes to health, who we know is just as important, if not more so, than what we know. [More]

Emergent Data about Football and Brain Injury: Is Football Safe to Play?

15. April 2015 05:55 by Agnes Oh, PsyD, LMFT | Comments

football
In recent years, however, the safety of the sport is being scrutinized as there’s a growing body of research evidence suggesting a clear link between football and brain injury. Specifically, repeated head concussions endured by many professional football players have been found to cause a brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). According to Wikipedia, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is described as a form of progressive degenerative disease. Currently, this brain condition can only be diagnosed definitively postmortem, which means that it cannot be diagnosed in living people. [More]
