School Shootings on the Rise. International Unrest. Personal Crisis - How Do You Cope?

14. March 2015 05:55 by Alicia Meade, MA, LCSW | Comments

resilance
For most of us, meeting with misfortune and struggle is a part of life. In fact, surviving adversity is often viewed as beneficial and necessary. According to one Danish Proverb: “A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man be perfected without trials.” When a person survives life’s difficulties and demonstrates the ability to withstand all of the stress that goes along with it, he or she is described as “resilient”. The Oxford Dictionary defines resilience as “The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape.” [More]

Empathy: The Antidote for Stress

13. March 2015 05:55 by Dr. Tony Victor D.Min., LCPC | Comments

empathy
When stress levels are high empathy tends to be very low. This is especially true in the most intimate relationships. Stress shows up in an intimate relationship when partners begin to doubt each other. Central to the doubt is the uncertainty of really knowing the partner. The common belief is the partner has changed or is somebody different than who they presented themselves to be. These beliefs create an image of the partner as a stranger. Seeing the partner as a stranger heightens stress and blocks empathy. Blocking empathy prevents empathic communication from happening. [More]

Spock is Dead- Many People Affected

At first blush, the impact of a celebrity’s death on the individual would seem rather far removed. Upon closer examination, however, classic stages of grief may be recognized. Although duration and severity may be noted to be shorter and more limited, it can reasonably be expected that the degree to which grief is experienced can directly correspond to the degree to which the individual relates to the given celebrity and his or her characters.

Do I Have Adult ADHD or Am I Just Busy?

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

adhd
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) has become a very widely known term in many people’s family life. Whether you have a child that has been diagnosed through their pediatrician or their school, you are grateful that the issues your family struggles with have a name and an intervention or you believe that the condition is over-diagnosed and over-medicated in children, you likely have heard about this diagnosis.

New Research: Safety of Adolescent Bariatric Surgery

11. March 2015 05:55 by Dr. C. Wayne Winkle,Phd | Comments

teenageroverweight
With the number of adolescents and even younger children developing obesity rising over the past years, the question of the best way to address it has been examined recently. The “Teen Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery” study concluded this year and results have been published (Micalsky, et al., 2015). This study focused on cardiovascular risk factors in adolescents who were severely obese, along with safety and health effects of weight-loss surgery procedures for that population. [More]

Reclaiming Strength in the Wake of Trauma

10. March 2015 05:55 by Tracy Busse, MA, LPC | Comments

trauma
In the wake of trauma many people feel lost and alone. The person they were before the event occurred seems altered. Where they once felt strong and assured they now live in fear and uncertainty. While not every person will have this experience after going through a life-altering event many will. Trauma can alter how a person perceives the world but it does not change the core aspects of who you are as a person. [More]

Exercise and Mental Health....The Missing Link?

9. March 2015 05:55 by Dr. Dawn Crosson,Psy.D | Comments

exercise
The benefits of exercise have been explored for decades. The profit of a holistic approach to psychotherapy that incorporates a physical regime may improve outcomes in mental health treatment (Weir, 2011). Three exercise routines per week, lasting 20-30 minutes in conjunction with psychotherapy and a concurrent medication regime has been associated with enhanced mental health treatment.

Schizophrenia: Seeking The Cause

alzheimers
New research from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health takes one more step toward finding the causative factors behind the development of schizophrenia (Stansfield, et al., 2015). Studying the brains of rats exposed to lead brought more strong indications that this kind of exposure may be a precursor to schizophrenia.

Why 50 Shades Bombed- But Women Still Want To Be Taken

7. March 2015 05:55 by Liz Dube,MA, MS, LMFT, CST | Comments

5 0shades
Ok, so 50 Shades the movie bombed compared to the success of the book trilogy. Critics basically said it was cheesy, the sex scenes were unsatisfying, and there was no spark between the two actors. So did it bomb because of the way it was made or the story-line? Whatever the reason it has been a great opportunity to get a very common fantasy out there in mainstream media for women and men of all walks of life. [More]

Twitter-Shaming: Kelly Clarkson, Justine Sacco who's next?

6. March 2015 09:45 by Darren Haber | Comments

justineseco
Has it become unsafe in our society to make a mistake, accidentally or privately, over drinks with friends for instance, to express those parts of ourselves which Jung described as “the shadow:” those perceptions or attitudes that the ego, for various reasons (some of them socially imposed), deems unacceptable and keeps hidden? An extreme example is seen with sex addiction, where someone’s often positive public image stands in shocking contrast to a “secret life” littered with “shenanigans” that friends, family or fans find contemptible.
