I have served as a school and counseling psychologist for parents, individuals and their children, and during this period it has become apparent to me that self-esteem is the most important variable affecting one’s ability to develop his or her potential effectively. Thus, it seems reasonable to assume that the most effective way of promoting the development of children and adults is to help them to understand the important effects that self-esteem –high and low- have on one’s behavior and to provide practical information which can help them become more effective.
Parenting is a complex process that is becoming progressively more demanding. The pressures created by our rapidly changing contemporary society heavily tax the coping strategies of both parent and child.
In a recent study, Dr. A.H. Thompson (former suicide-olgist) reported a linear correlation between self-esteem scores earned on my Culture Free Self-Esteem Inventory, and suicidal behavior. This observati...

About a month ago, I posed a question to my Facebook friends, asking them how they cope with periods of depression, loneliness, and hopelessness. I received many wonderful, honest responses. Studies have shown that therapy and counseling are an effective ways to deal with depression. But I know that there are others ways too. So, I continue to share with you the variety of ways people get through the tough days, months, and years.
One friend said the following, quoting Lewis Carroll who wrote, ” Either the well was very deep, or he fell very slowly, for he had plenty of time as he went down to look about him and to wonder what was going to happen next.”: I pray, write and wait till the journey through the looking glass is over… and then I try to remember where I left off.
Another friend gets through these periods by focusing on where she is needed and releasing emotions: I try to focus on why I am needed now…2 children, so I must continue the commute to and ...
Balance is certainly tough to find in our hectic modern lifestyle. Balance in our lives is divided into 3 areas: Mental Balance, Physical balance and Spiritual Balance. Mental Balance is the idea of challenging your mind. Many people get this at work. For those of us who don’t there’s sudoku, crossword puzzles, reading and games-fun things like board games, cards, puzzles and challenges. The best part is-because its fun, we are getting smarter just by doing it. Physical Balance is challenging yourself physically everyday with activity. You don’t have to run a marathon-just get moving-walk, jog, carry groceries a few extra feet. Spiritual balance is basically your guiding force. This could be God or gods, the universe or a totem pole (my personal favorite). You need to pay attention to them (or it). to be spiritually balanced
remember that you need to work your way up slowly to achieve your goals. When I started doing pushups at age 14, I could do 5. Now I can do 500. R...
Until recently, treatment professionals addressing disorders such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse have tended to defer treatment of nicotine addiction until after the so-called primary disorder (anxiety, depression, substance abuse) has been stabilized. The thinking was that attempting to arrest nicotine use (smoking) would distract the patient from focusing on treatment of the more immediate problem of depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. In a study summarized in ScienceDaily on February 11, 2014, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have concluded that “ ***that quitting or significantly cutting back on cigarette smoking was linked to improved mental health outcomes. Quitting altogether or reducing by half the number of cigarettes smoked daily was associated with lower risk for mood disorders like depression, as well as a lower likelihood of alcohol and drug problems.”
The lead researcher of the study “***believes the...

Feeling depressed, lonely, and hopeless are not unusual emotional experiences for many of us. Yet it is something we rarely talk about in public or with our friends. We read books – often in the solitude of our homes – which can be helpful. But books connect us in a different way then discussion. In an effort to destigmatize this part of life, I asked my personal Facebook friends for their thoughts on how they cope when they find themselves in difficult emotional states. Here’s the second installment of their lovely responses.
One friend offered some uncommon advice, going against the Washington, DC work ideal of staying busy: I get through by remembering that the bad/low time ends eventually, trying to sleep more (i.e. just let myself be exhausted and not try to push myself through, which is what society is often saying I should do), seeking support from friends/loved ones, get things done first thing in the day when I usually have energy even when in a depression.
In November 2013, Sue Johnson shared the results of a groundbreaking collaboration between herself and University of Virginia Neuroscientist Dr. James Coan. They showed for the first time that Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) changes how the brain perceives and responds to threat.The research findings have important implications for all of us. We all know that EFT can deepen love and create a more secure emotional bond, but we haven’t always understood how this happens. It seems that science is giving us a deeper understanding of how love (and adult attachment security) works at the level of brain function.
Here is a link to this amazing research: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0079314
For those of you that may not have the time to read it, Sue has summarized the findings like this:
The study dramatically illustrates how couples therapy that teaches people to bond securely, builds the pathway for loving contact that soothes the brain and calms ...
