The Ice Bucket Challenge
If you have a social media account, or have been watching the news lately, then you have probably heard about the Ice Bucket Challenge. The Ice Bucket Challenge, is part of an awareness campaign to inform people about ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and encouraging them to donate to the cause.
The popular trend began around the beginning of August, and has seen millions of people participate, including celebrities and politicians. People choose to either dump a bucket of ice water over their head, or donate $100 to the ALS Association, some do both. These participants then challenge a few of their friends to do the same, thus continuing the chain. This campaign has gained worldwide popularity, and according to the ALS Association, has raised $31.5 million in donations, compared to the $1.9 million they received in the same time period last year (1).
In addition to the donations received, perhaps one of the most ...

It is a beautiful Spring day in Portland, Oregon. I turn in my chair to look out the big skylight in my office. A stately dark green Maple tree is perfectly framed. Honey bees are busy visiting the small cream-colored flowers. The sky is that color of blue that reminds me of the sea above a shallow coral reef. I check in with my heart. My heart checks in with me. The clear message is that I want to go for a walk. I have a lot of work to do in the office. My heart wins. I put on my coat. I open the door. I start walking.
Though it is still early morning, the sidewalks are quickly filling up with others who are similarly drawn to the cool air...to the lilac bushes...to small butterflies. They are walking.
One of the benefits and accompanying drawbacks of being a therapist, is that I find myself extending my emotional self to people I do not know. Simply put, I want to know how their day is going. I want to know what their stories might be. It is an interesting, genuine, an...
WHAT IS TRUMA?
There are large “T” traumas such as rape, war, assault, sexual, physical & emotional abuse, accidents (or witnessing one), natural disasters, divorce, chronic/acute illness, etc and there are small “t” traumas such as betrayal, mild forms of bullying or negative feedback, lack of proper emotional support as a child, etc.
Events happen to you that you are unable to process and you are left feeling overwhelmed, with symptoms that just won’t go away, that’s also considered a trauma response. Memories are stored in the brain and symptoms can also be experienced and felt throughout pains or aches in the body. There is a mind-body connection and what we think and feel reflects our pains and joys through behavioral and thought patterns. In order to heal you have to deal with the whole person, both the body and mind. If the trauma remains unresolved, it will, many times, cause symptoms in your present life.
Following is a short list of p...
Studies have shown that art therapy as well as play therapy with children with cancer have positive effects on their mood, as they alleviate fear and enhance quality of social life. Creativity, spontaneity, and freedom that come with art activities allow children with cancer to destroy, create, and recreate negative experiences that are associated with their illness. Researchers believe that this process is not only healing in nature but also ease acceptance of the illness and increase the tolerance for unexpectedness. Moreover, imagination, which is inherent in art activities, helps children with cancer to turn impossible to possible, regain the lost control of their life, and increase their psychological well-being.

Before Chronic Illness moved into your world, how did you and your family deal with crisis? Typically one member goes into Fix-It-Mode, and others take roles that feel most comfortable to them. The ideal, yet least common approach to problems is honest problem solving that includes talking about emotions and feelings. Families that have worked through the more difficult aspects of having an ill member may invite the help of a trained professional such as a psychotherapist, pastoral counselor, priest or rabbi. Other families schedule regular family meetings to help "clear the air" and make sure that there are as few misunderstandings as possible. The more coping techniques the better.
There are several common areas that are challenges for families with chronic illness: Comfort, trust, and respect are basic ingredients that strengthen connections. Other relationship issues that must be negotiated are: dealing with emotions: denial, depression and disappointments; planning, preparation, ...
The Secrets Our Bodies Hold
Our bodies cry out in two ways - either through emotion or illness. When we understand our body's pain we articulate it. When we can't understand it, we are overwhelmed by emotional and/or physical sensations. And we feel powerless. While we need to understand what is happening to us, we may not always find the answers. But we can make peace with our emotions, just as we learn to make peace with other unanswerable events in our life - and in fact, with life itself.
I deal with Trauma in my work. I work extensively with adults who have been sexually, emotionally or physically abused as children. I see the effects of trauma, years, even decades, after it occurred. While just about everyone experiences traumatic events; it is not the occurrence of trauma but how an individual deals with a traumatic event(s) that determines the impact it will have on his or her life. When trauma occurs at a very early age, it is just as important, maybe even more important, how...
