Omega 3s & Schizophrenia

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

In the March NAMI Advocate newsletter, it is reported that research indicates that Omega 3s in general, could be taken before a psychotic disorder fully emerges (with far less side-effects than anti-psychotic medications).

Personality Disorders And The Human Soul

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

From my personal perspective as a religiously/spiritually-observant psychotherapist, personality disorders can be a psycho-spiritual issue. My sense is that people with these disorders also appear to have spiritual barriers.

Getting In Touch With My Inner Dog

Monday, March 28th, 2011

I think I figured it out. What was puzzling wasn’t the dog’s behavior-it was the videographer’s. How could the cameraman keep this worried animal in suspense and not go to the canine companions’ rescue?

Bullying Bullies & Their Victims: POLL

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Despite the fact that it is a hot topic in the news, in all fairness, it seems there have always been bullies and victims. Sometimes the victims grow up and become bullies themselves. Some of them even go into politics. (Joke. Sort of).

Andy Griffith & Piles Of Files

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

I remember back in the 1960s when my father stored all the family’s “important papers” in one or two accordion files. Of course, that was back in the day of Andy Griffith and Mayberry and things were simpler then. It seemed like there was all the time in the world. Fathers and sons really did grab a couple sandwhiches and a thermos and a fishing pole and spent the day fishing. Does anybody do that anymore?

Be Different: Asperger’s Gifts

Monday, March 21st, 2011

In fact, upon reading the book, we weren’t so much struck by his inability to “pick up on” normative social interactions as we were by how shallow and deceptive our “normal” social interactions actually appear when analyzed by someone with Asperger’s! He’s right-many of our unwritten social rules really, logically, don’t make sense.

When Drastic Measures Are Called For: Interventions

Friday, March 18th, 2011

The person who calls might have been caught up in their loved-one’s symptoms. They might be codependent. They might be held hostage by the other person’s symptoms. They become frozen and afraid to act. This perpetuates the cycle. The more they ignore the situation, the worse it usually gets.

Poll: Straightjackets At The Bias Ballet

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

What were the teachers thinking? With all the recent news exposes on educators in various states you would think that institutionally-sanctioned (no joke intended) mockery of mentally ill people in a school performance would cause someone to think twice.

First 5 Thoughts On Japan’s Earthquake, Tsunami

Monday, March 14th, 2011

2. Awe. At the sheer power of the earthquake and tsunami. Being shocked out of “self” and reminded that we do not control the world. We don’t even control our own, personal worlds.
