Online dating sites are a popular place to seek relationships. While the majority of couples still meet offline at work, school, places of worship, bars and social events, today’s couples are almost as likely to meet on-line as they are to meet in any of these offline venues.

Psychotherapy in the 21st century has changed its face. Growing from the early days of psychoanalysis and behavioral therapies, it was once primarily for the severely mentally ill. People who needed and entered therapy were usually viewed as “crazy”. Today, psychology in general, permeates nearly every important field.

The Atrocities of Boko Haram and Isis ARE Happening in America

19. February 2015 05:55 by Tracy Busse, MA, LPC | Comments

isis
In the last year, the chilling actions of ISIS and Boko Haram have shocked many. Americans have questioned their barbaric practices and lack of regard for women. It is hard to imagine something like that happening in America. As stories of survivors are released, hearts sink when they hear of women and children being forced into marriage and raped by militants (Those, 2014). But what if these same injustices were happening in the United States? Perhaps they are. [More]

Psychological Impact of Severe Food Allergies

18. February 2015 05:55 by Dr. C. Wayne Winkle,Phd | Comments

allergies
It may be that the effects of food allergies are greater on parents than on the children who suffer from them. Parents feel they must be on guard every minute to protect their children from possibly fatal reactions to foods, substances human beings need to survive. This constant vigilance wears down the strongest parent. This can lead to significant stress. Stressed parents may respond in ways that cause stress on their children. [More]

The Catastrophic Cost of Codependency

16. February 2015 09:58 by Joan Childs,LCSW | Comments

codependancy
Codependency syndrome was originally coined and named when Melodie Beattie worked at Hanley Hazelton with recovering addicts and alcoholics. She identified the significant others to the addicts as co-dependent, implying that the addict was addicted to a substance, but the significant other was addicted to the addict. Current research sheds new light on how codependency negatively affects people from all walks of life. [More]

Commitments in relationships tend to create a sense of security for those involved, and are often a welcomed opportunity to give oneself over to one’s beloved. Marriage is often perceived to be the ultimate commitment in a romantic relationship because it vows to sustain the union despite emotional turbulence

Can Addiction Be Passed Down? The Nature vs. Nurture Debate

12. February 2015 05:55 by Dr. Irina Kerzhnerman,Phd | Comments

addictionnaturenurture
The overall message from the research seems to be that the development of addiction is a complex interaction between biology and environment. As with any health condition, the more risk factors an individual has for developing a problem, the more there needs to be an awareness of the need for protective/prevention based behaviors and for identification of early warning signs of a problem.
