The Investigation

One of the saddest rewards of greatness is an individual who will deliberately seek out your flaws, only to avoid someone discovering theirs. This is the nature of leadership bruised by being overweight or the need to over achieve and this sadness goes on in the church. When someone with a legitimate gift and calling comes on the scene and is recognized by the Chief Apostle of the house, CEO of a solid Fortune 500 company, all of a sudden, the elders are nervous, the assistant pastor now needs to investigate your documents and apostolic succession to make sure you are known by someone other than the credentials you hold, and the executive V.P. goes out of his way to misdirect you from any and all meetings, forgetting that you have the pipeline of favor and are well liked by the CFO in charge of a business venture that has been out of reach. For all intended purposes, some of this is truly needed. But when you’re an educated Man\Woman, Rev.Dr./Newly Degreed, Partner in the states m...

Own Anger To Manage It

Though no one category fits all, in my psychotherapy practice I notice a strong correlation between folks with chronic anger management problems and those who exhibit self-defeating personality traits. Many of these clients seem to organize identities around a core belief that they are victims. We believe this to be true because we continue to suffer from parental improprieties long after growing up and leaving home. As much as clients express sincere wishes to move forward with their lives, making these wishes a reality are easier said than done. Each and every time they are angry, the experiences feel as if salt is being poured on their incompletely healed emotional scars. They are especially resistant to the notion that their parents and themselves for that matter, did and still do the best they can given their limitations and the limits of the support they receive from loved ones. They prefer to collect grievances and hold grudges even though such dispositions hold themselves back ...

Ask The Expert:

QUESTION: ”I know you work with athletes, dealing with their issues in drugs, alcohol, guns, gambling, women and anger. What do you different with them that you don’t do with other people?” Alex C., New York, New York

ANSWER: ”When I work directly with athletes, we focus on them as individuals. We focus on their talents on the field or court and work with them when their head is in the game and out. We handle all the issues and concerns that are specific to them and their career. We also deal with anger management and things that are relevant to them, like taking guns into nightclubs and domestic violence. So it is specific and individualized. You can find more about us on

Black and White thinking Is it Human Nature?

 Much is made of the tendency to see the world…situations, people, countries….life itself…as “black or white”, “good or bad”, “positive or negative”. Therapists will tell you that this inclination is the root of all kinds of problems and difficulties. And well it may be… But just how did we humans develop this nasty habit of dividing our perceptions into “either or” categories anyway?

In this universe of opposites, is it possible to live in the Oneness?

Melanie Klein, a revolutionary psychoanalyst who was a student of both Freud and Ferenczi, discovered in her ground breaking work of the 1950’s and 60’s, that the infant’s tendency to split the objects in the world into “good” and “bad” stems from the earliest of all instincts…hunger. When mom is there to satiate that hunger, baby sees her (and the world) as all good and loving…the source of comfort ...

Black Friday Turns To Black Eye Friday

A dispute over a parking spot turned violent outside a Wal-Mart in Tazewell, Va. Two men were charged after the altercation.

TAZEWELL, Va. — A dispute in a southwest Virginia parking lot crowded with holiday shoppers turned violent Thanksgiving night, with one throwing a punch and another responding by cutting him with a knife and brandishing a rifle, officials said Friday.

Both men were charged Thursday after the altercation in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart in Tazewell County that sent panicked shoppers scattering.

Christopher Jackson, 35, was waiting for another shopper to leave a parking space when Ronnie Sharp, 61, began sounding his horn behind Jackson's vehicle, the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office said.

Sheriff Brian Hieatt said Jackson got out of his vehicle and confronted Sharp, punching him, and Sharp responded by severely cutting Jackson on the arm with a knife and pulling out a rifle. The rifle was not loaded.

Sharp was charged with malicious wounding and brandis...

Toronto Mayor Ford Says: "I'm Not An Addict!" -Just Too Drunk To Remember Smoking Crack

After being mocked mercilessly on "Saturday Night Live," Toronto Mayor Rob Ford sat down with the "Today" show for an interview that aired Tuesday, telling Matt Lauer he doesn't actually remember smoking crack cocaine in his now infamous "drunken stupor," but that he is nonetheless fit to lead.
"I can't even remember it," Ford said of his crack use caught on video. "I was very, very inebriated."
“I’m embarrassed," Ford said. “Not just myself, my family, my friends, my supporters, the whole city. I take full responsibility for it. We've all made mistakes. I’m not perfect. Maybe you are, maybe other people are, [but] I've made mistakes.”
The interview was broadcast a day after a raucous City Council meeting in which Ford blasted lawmakers and knocked over a councilwoman before being stripped of more powers in the wake of his crack admission.
"What happened today, that's dictatorship and it's all personal," Ford told ABC News Monday. "All they did was stab me in ...

Teen Shooting In Pittsburgh Linked To Previous Assault and Drugs

Police believe the shooting might stem from a drug-related fight between some students last month.

PITTSBURGH —Three teenage boys were wounded on Wednesday when a 16-year-old allegedly opened fire near a Pittsburgh high school in a bid to exact revenge for a fight that took place at the school a month ago, police said.

The three victims, one aged 16 and two aged 17, were not cooperating with investigators, police said. The head of Pittsburgh Emergency Medical Services, Mark Bocian, said their injuries were not life-threatening.

“This whole incident … may have been related over something that happened a month ago,” said Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard after speaking with officials at Brashear High School, near where the shooting took place.

Richard said a fight at the school on October 18th “quite possibly could be drug-related.”

Police arrested a 16-year-old on attempted homicide, aggravated assault and other charges stemming from t...

Raising Natural Born Killers? Sheen Twin's Violent Behavior Due to Mom's Abuse of Drugs and Alcohol

Los Angeles, Nov 12 (IANS) Socialite Brooke Mueller has agreed to have her twins Bob and Max tested for "fetal alcohol and drug syndrome".

The 36-year-old will reportedly have her children with Charlie Sheen tested to see whether they have mental and physical defects, which can develop in a fetus due to high levels of alcohol consumption during pregnancy, reports

It is believed the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) thought it was a necessary move and Mueller wants to cooperate.

"Brooke did indeed also drink large amounts of alcohol while pregnant. This was on top of the drug use which included meth," a source said.

"Child services demanded Brooke sign off on having the boys tested and assessed for fetal drug and alcohol syndrome," another source said.

This comes after Sheen's other ex-wife, actress Denise Richards, who was granted temporary custody of Bob and Max in May until the end of this year, wrote to the DCFS to inform them she ca...

NFL Player needs Anger Management Coach and More. Bullying Stems From Alcohol Addiction

Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito has found himself in the center of a national firestorm, and the chief reason might be his abuse of alcohol

Richie Incognito and alcohol are, by most appearances, a toxic mix.

As more details of his past behavior emerge, there is growing evidence that many of the decisions that wrecked Incognito’s reputation, and possibly his career, were made while impaired.

The most notorious example: The profanity-laced and racially charged voicemail he left on Jonathan Martin’s phone. The message has become Exhibit A in the case that Incognito, at the very least, emotionally abused his teammate.

“I don’t think it was a secret that Richie liked to go out and have a good time,” Dolphins offensive tackle Tyson Clabo said. “And I’m sure that we’ve all gone out and had a few too many and called somebody and don’t even remember what we said on the voicemail.”

Now, the sum...
