Dove’s #ChooseBeautiful Looks To Transform Beauty

13. April 2015 08:32 by Lee Kehoe, MS, LMHC, NCC | Comments

Dove’s new campaign #ChooseBeautiful is challenging women across the globe to rethink what it means to be beautiful and acknowledge their own beauty. Dove’s most recent inspirational advertising placed a “beautiful” sign and an “average” sign above two adjacent doors of buidlings in San Francisco, Shanghai, London, Delhi, and Sao Paulo. The cameras were then rolling to see what women of all ages would do when faced with the decision to walk through the “average” door or the “beautiful” door. The large majority of women chose to walk under the “average” door, some with hesitation, others seemingly without thought. [More]

WWI Cave Writings Discovered: Soldiers Coping Brought to Life

11. April 2015 12:55 by Lee Kehoe, MS, LMHC, NCC | Comments

As if inscribed today, the crisp etching “James Cockburn 8th Durham, L.I.” followed by the inscribed date “April 1, 1917” was discovered on the walls of the cave like tunnels in Naours, France. The date provided clues to the World War I time period in which thousands of soldiers left such markings in the stone walls. Archaeologist, Gilles Prilaux, made the surprising discovery while studying the Naours tunnels as a lens into the middle ages. The Naours tunnels are far from the front lines of the WWI battlefields, yet 1,821 soldiers from the U.S., Australia, Britain, and Canada made their way into the underground tunnels for reasons that are now being further explored by historians.

Amanda Knox travelled to Italy as an exchange student in 2007. She was twenty years old. It has been reported that her stepfather, Chris Mellas, believed that Amanda was too naive to live abroad. He surely could not have imagined that she would be arrested and tried four times for the murder of Meredith Kercher.

The Extraordinary Bond Between People and Pets

4. April 2015 05:55 by Cindy Ariel,Phd | Comments

pets
Pets offer important social and emotional support to their adoptive family members. According to the American Humane Society, 164 million or 62% of American households included at least one pet in 2012. Research published by the American Psychological Association found that pet owners can be just as close to some of the people in their lives as to their pets. Because the bond can be so vital, lack of compassion regarding the loss of a pet can interfere with the healthy mourning process for many grieving pet owners. [More]

Anything You Can Do I Can Do BETTER: Praise and Sense of Self in Children

3. April 2015 05:55 by Raushannah Johnson-Verwayne,Psy.D. | Comments

praise
It is a well-known fact that parenting does not come with a manual of standard procedure (which would indeed be helpful) and at times, various topics arise which make parents second-guess themselves. Recently, the topic of praise and narcissism has been at the forefront of social media and sensationalized pop-culture blogs. However, what is missing is an expert opinion on the matter based upon a combination of empiricism and years of experience with hundreds, even thousands of children. [More]
