What America Can Learn from Couples Therapy

What America Can Learn from Couples Therapy

The principles of good communication for Couples Therapy Palo Alto could also apply to divided Americans. At family gatherings, in bars and restaurants, relatives and friends are shouting at each other instead of engaging in what used to be called political discussions. These high-volume, emotionally charged exchanges are also increasingly the norm in venues ranging from local governments to national ruling bodies across the world. These shout-fests might remind you of a bad marriage—and we think there is some truth in that. We are clinical psychologists who are couples therapists and researchers who evaluate the benefits of interventions with couples. …

Social Media and Suicide Among Teens

Social Media and Suicide Among Teens

Digital media, including social media, became a centerpiece of day to day life at a seemingly exponential rate. Before I graduated high school in 2006, I remember many evenings spent on ICQ (used to chat with friends), making simple websites with shout outs to my friends which included obnoxious lists of inside jokes, and playing The Sims Online. I whiled away the hours without much consequence – at that time it was  project to upload a picture to the internet (you had to have a digital camera or a scanner), and in order to sign up for Facebook, you needed …

Disorganized Attachment

Disorganized Attachment

Mary Ainsworth’s work on attachment identified three attachment categories (secure, insecure avoidant, and insecure ambivalent/resistant).

How Well Are You Listening to Your Children and Others?

How Well Are You Listening to Your Children and Others?

When our children come to us with a problem, we usually want to help them. So we console, interpret, advise, distract or praise. Other times, we feel we must teach our children, and so we interrogate, lecture, moralize or order. And probably more often than we’d like, we respond angrily—blaming, criticizing, ridiculing, shaming or withdrawing. However, all of these responses are problematic—whether with our children, or with the important adults in our lives. They often serve to stop the communication of real feelings and the development of individual solutions. Take the quiz below, adapted from the classic Parent Effectiveness Training, …

Your Reaction to “The New Normal”: Are My Thoughts And Feelings Normal? How Are You? No, Really, How are you? The answer to this question is often a resounding, “Eh.” As therapists, we see the silver lining in this: emotional honesty (we can see your eye roll). We have found that because we are in a difficult common experience, we have been able to connect more quickly with one another around difficult emotions. This seems more authentic than the old standard, “I’m fine.” Am I Normal? We’ve all been hearing a lot about “the new normal,” but what does that …

Counseling for women – Infidelity

Counseling for women - Infidelity

According to The New York Times, the most consistent data on infidelity comes from the University of Chicago’s General Social Survey (GSS). Interviews with people in non-monogamous relationships since 1972 by the GSS have shown that approximately 12% of men and 7% of women admit to having had an extramarital relationship. Results, however, vary year by year, and also by age-group surveyed. For example, one study conducted by the University of Washington, Seattle found slightly, or significantly higher rates of infidelity for populations under 35, or older than 60. In that study which involved 19,065 people during a 15-year period, …

What is ADHD?

What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a multifactorial neurobiological disorder (Curatolo, Paloscia, D’Agati, Moavero, & Pasini, 2009) that affects between 3% and 7% of school aged children in the United States and is the most prevalent neurobehavioral condition among this population in many countries (Findling, 2008).  Although it may be the most studied condition in child psychiatry worldwide, its exact causes  and the exact mechanisms underlying this disorder are still unknown (Cortese, 2012).  It appears to be caused by the confluence of many genetic and environmental risk factors, each having a small effect on increasing vulnerability to the disorder (Curatolo et al., …

Are You Financially Avoidant?

You come home and see the pile of unopened bills and bank statements, but instead of opening them, you move onto something else. Maybe you come up with a justification for passing that pile for the umpteenth time, or maybe you stuff the slight feeling of panic back down and ignore it. You have no idea what your credit score is, and you aren’t sure how close you are to overdrawing your bank account. You’re waiting until you get paid again to check, but part of you knows that you aren’t planning to check next time around either. Money becomes …

Everything You Need To Know About Relationship Counseling

Why, when and how to pursue therapy to make your relationships stronger Saying “relationships are hard” is so common it’s a cliché now. But it’s also true. Even when people get along really well, stress and daily life can cause conflicts that seem difficult or even impossible to resolve. Relationship counseling can help people in these tough situations to work through their problems, move beyond them, and be better partners overall. Relationship therapy isn’t just for married people: cohabiting couples, people in non-monogamous relationships and gay, lesbian and queer people can also benefit. It can also be helpful for siblings …

Are You a Visual or an Auditory Learner? It Doesn’t Matter

One mental strategy may be much better suited than another to a particular task. You must read this article to understand it, but many people feel reading is not how they learn best. They would rather listen to an explanation or view a diagram. Researchers have formalized those intuitions into theories of learning styles. These theories are influential enough that many states (including New York) require future teachers to know them and to know how they might be used in the classroom. But there’s no good scientific evidence that learning styles actually exist. Over the last several decades, researchers have …

Where to Find Romance in Marriage

It took my mother’s short-term amnesia to make me realize what long-term love is all about. I feared that my childhood had ruined me for romance. My mother raised me alone, just the two of us, in five states and nine different houses. Sometimes we were broke, but we always had fun. She made every day beautiful. We ate pancakes for dinner, grew watermelon in the garden, picked raspberries. I had always imagined myself married, but how could marriage ever compare to the enchantment of my childhood? We had dogs, cats, ferrets. Wild animals showed up like messengers from fairy …

How Arousal Impacts Physiological Synchrony in Relationships

A team of researchers led by a member of the Colorado School of Public Health faculty at the Anschutz Medical Campus examined what type of social interaction is required for people to display physiological synchrony — mutual changes in autonomic nervous system activity. The study also looked at whether the levels of autonomic arousal people share predicts affiliation and friendship interest between people. The findings are published in Nature Scientific Reports. “In a variety of situations, people appear more social with one another when their autonomic nervous systems are in sync. However, this is the first study to show that, …

Tainted By Association, What Does This Tell Us About Ethics?

When I first heard the allegations of serial sexual misconduct against the American folk-rock singer Ryan Adams earlier this year – that he had emotionally and psychologically abused several women and underage girls, using his status in the music industry as leverage – I didn’t want to believe it. Yet this desire to not-believe strongly preceded any acquaintance I had with the actual facts. Indeed – and as I am now ashamed to admit – I initially read the facts with great skepticism, hoping that they were wrong. Only with effort have I forced myself to put aside my initial …

Misbehaving: being clever and wicked is a form of creativity

Suppose you forgot it was your partner’s birthday, but you know that they would appreciate the smallest of gestures, say a bouquet. It’s late at night and no florists are open. The cemetery on your way home has recently had a funeral, and you walk across the site and pick up a good-looking bouquet of roses from someone’s grave. You then head home, and the flowers are happily received by your partner. Would you say that you hurt anyone? This isn’t so much a moral dilemma as it is a creative misbehaviour. More specifically, it is an instance of the …

The 5 Different Types of Cybersex Users

So many questions come up about cybersex. What is cyber sex? What are the risks of cybersex? How can we protect children from cyberstalkers? While you might think of certain stereotypes associated with cybersex addiction, the reality is that cybersex addiction spans many demographic groups, including people of all genders and ages. While more research is needed to identify groups more accurately, there are some specific types of cybersex user we do know about. Cybersex users vary in how much they engage in internet sexual behavior, and in their reasons for seeking sexual gratification online. As outlined in the book, …

The Trouble With Being Happy

Lots of animals have thoughts, but humans are unique because we can have thoughts about our thoughts. We can feel content about feeling happy. Or we can also feel disappointed about being depressed. We developed this skill because most of our problem solving starts with thinking. We strategize, we evaluate, and we ruminate. So it’s only natural to assume that any bad mood can be solved with some good mental strategy, right? As it turns out . . .not so much. Humans are programmed to be great thinkers, but we didn’t evolve to be happy every second of every day. …

Concentrations of Cannabinoids Impact Anxiety, Stress, and Depression

A new study sheds light on how different quantities of tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol — the psychoactive compounds in cannabis — affect levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. Researchers from Washington State University (WSU) found that adults reported a reduction in depressive symptoms with just a single puff of medical marijuana that was high in cannabidiol (CBD) and low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The team also found that at least 10 puffs of marijuana high in both CBD and THC led to significant reductions in self-reported stress, while two puffs of cannabis with any level of CBD or THC led to a …

Ketamine Used By Researchers At The National Institutes of Health

It was November 2012 when Dennis Hartman, a Seattle business executive, managed to pull himself out of bed, force himself to shower for the first time in days and board a plane that would carry him across the country to a clinical trial at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in Bethesda. After a lifetime of profound depression, 25 years of therapy and cycling through 18 antidepressants and mood stabilizers, Hartman, then 46, had settled on a date and a plan to end it all. The clinical trial would be his last attempt at salvation. For 40 minutes, he …

The Heartbreak of Infidelity

Infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. Weather physical cheating, emotional cheating or a combination of both, the pain of finding out that your partner has cheated on you is second to none. Despite the sadness, there is hope. People can change, and relationships can get stronger. If you choose to continue your relationship after cheating has occurred, it is possible to move on and have a robust and secure relationship with your partner. However, before you move on, you have to begin to cope. Here are a few ways to start your journey to wellness and happiness after you’ve faced the …

Are there ways of spending money that will make you happier?

Being rich or richer may not guarantee happiness, as shown by ample evidence from the social sciences, but there are ways of spending money that will make you happier than others. Recent research has uncovered the “experiential advantage”: greater happiness from spending money on experiences (holidays, meals, theatre tickets) instead of material things (gadgets, clothes, jewelry). This could be for a number of reasons, such as experiences being more closely aligned with our values and being less likely to produce rumination and regret. There are exceptions to this rule, of course. Studies have found that personality traits can influence whether …

A Landmark Study on the Origins of Alcoholism

By studying rats in a smarter way, scientists are finally learning something useful about why some drinkers become addicted and others don’t. For Markus Heilig, the years of dead ends were starting to grate. A seasoned psychiatrist, Heilig joined the National Institutes of Health in 2004 with grand ambitions of finding new ways to treat addiction and alcoholism. “It was the age of the neuroscience revolution, and all this new tech gave us many ways of manipulating animal brains,” he recalls. By studying addictive behavior in laboratory rats and mice, he would pinpoint crucial genes, molecules, and brain regions that …

People With Strong Self Control Are Less Hungry & Tired?!

You may think of people with high self-control as having enviable reserves of willpower, but recent findings suggest this isn’t the case. Instead it seems the strong-willed are canny folk, adept at avoiding temptation in the first place. A new study in the journal Self and Identity builds on this picture, showing that people high in self-control tend to experience less intense visceral states, like fatigue, hunger and stress (states that are known to encourage impulsive behaviour). The new findings make sense: after all, it is much easier to be in control of your decisions if you are organised enough …

A Dark Sense of Humor Linked to High Intelligence

People who appreciate taboo jokes and other forms of black humor show higher levels of intelligence, according to a recent study. Do you find yourself holding back your laughter at tasteless or morbid jokes? An appreciation of black humor could be an indicator of intelligence levels, according to the findings of a new Austrian study published in the journal Cognitive Processing. Researchers at the Medical University of Vienna have found that the enjoyment of so-called ‘gallows humor’ is linked to high levels of both verbal and nonverbal intelligence. In an experiment led by psychologist Ulrike Willinger, they also found that …

Does Being Spiritual Make You Healthier?

Examining the spirituality-health connection Ever since the late 1990s, there’s been an explosion in the number of studies devoted to examining the role that spirituality and religion have on health. Between 2001 and 2010, the number of research studies examining the spirituality-health connection more than doubled, from 1200 to 3000. Improvements in pharmacology are one big reason for the shift. Because we already have so many medical treatments at our disposal, there is more interest in examining the role of religion and spirituality in health. Despite the increase in interest, however, the relationship between religion/spirituality and health remains nebulous and …

Nutrition Coaching – Psychology – Weight Loss

How the three interact to produce remarkable results. A healthier mind can lead to a healthier body and a better relationship with food. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 33 percent of adults living in the United States are overweight, and an additional 36 percent are obese. Meaning that almost 70% of Americans weigh more than what is considered healthy. In addition, approximately one in six children in the U.S. are obese. Whether the weight gain is from poor diet, age, healing from surgery or a lack of exercise, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed …

Suicide and Suicide Prevention

Understanding the risk factors, prevention, and what we can do to help Background Suicide is defined as intentionally taking one’s own life and comes from the Latin suicidium, which literally means “to kill oneself.” It tends to carry different traits depending on culture. Historically, and still today in some locations, suicide is considered a criminal offense, a religious taboo, and, in some cases, an act of honor (e.g., kamikaze and suicide bombings). Literally speaking, suicide, or completed suicide is the successful act of intentionally causing one’s own death. Attempted suicide is an attempt to take one’s life that does not …

Nine Ways Successful People Defeat Stress

Feeling stressed? Of course you are. You have too much on your plate, deadlines are looming, people are counting on you, and to top it all off, you still have holiday shopping to do.

The Trouble with Mindfulness Apps

When your favorite mindfulness app says it’s based in science, check twice. Few actually are. Be prepared to be bored. This is the gist of one of the notifications you receive before you try the body scan meditation from Mindful Mood Balance, a web-based program currently being piloted in a version for therapists. The app allows users to take Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) at a distance using their phone, tablet, or computer. Once you complete the 30-minute exercise, you navigate to a video featuring a group of people who’ve also just tried it. A few admit the experience was not …

Short term therapy with long-term results

What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. In many studies, CBT has been demonstrated to be as effective as, or more effective than, other forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric medications. It is important to emphasize that advances in CBT have been made on the basis of …

When is it really time for couples therapy?

Couples should seek therapy long before they think they “need” to. Most experts believe that therapy can be an important part of your relationship. Most issues within a couple start small and then grow in size when they don’t get resolved. This is where therapy can help, by giving tools and techniques to improve conflict resolution. The majority of couples say that they should have started therapy years earlier. An objective third party can be just the ticket when couples feel they can no longer communicate effectively. Rather than viewing therapy as the solution to a crisis, look at it …

Ketamine Infusion Therapy, How it Works and What to Expect

Can this long-used anesthetic be used to help those for which traditional antidepressants don’t work? Did you know that out of the millions of people treated for depression every year, around 30% won’t have success with traditional anti-depression medications?. Simply put, these medications are not always compatible with everyone’s needs. The drugs don’t affect a patient’s mood, side effects of these drugs are too much to bear, or the repetition of taking medication on a daily basis is challenging. When a person can’t get their depression in check, they are at a higher risk of alcohol and drug abuse, hospitalization …

A Book Review on Joyful Work

At the beginning of his book on natural and sustainable entrepreneurship, Dave Pollard offers an open letter to readers. In it he points this out about the approved system we are taught from a young age about making a living: That system has let us down badly. It is in the interest of those who control the current economic system, those with the established wealth and power, that we not know that there is a better way to make a living than working for them, doing meaningless work as wage slaves, just to buy ourselves some leisure time to do …

Couples, Your Phone May be Harming Your Parenting

It’s not abnormal to need a break from ‘mom or dad’ duty now and then, parents and couples often turn to their phones for a quick moment of respite. It’s a way to feel connected to the rest of the world again, and to feel like individual adults with individual personalities again, as much as possible throughout the day. Technology, like smart phone use, can also be a great resource tool in the world of parenting. But, there is a fine line between using your phone for good (or even as a bit of an escape), and using it as …

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety

With the rapid manner in which life whizzes past us on a daily basis, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of adults in the United States experience anxiety at some point in their life. Anxiety is defined by a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. Anything from work stress, concerns over money, problems at home, or disagreements with friends can trigger anxious feelings. While these episodic instances of anxiety happen to everyone, the big problem arises when anxiety is chronic. When these anxious feelings continue without resolution, there’s …

Adjustment disorders present as a group of symptoms that make you feel stressed, hopeless or sad that often occur after you go through a stressful life event. Something as simple as a job change may cause these symptoms to occur. They’re also common after more significant life changes such as divorce or the death of a loved one. Symptoms can either be acute; lasting less than six months and usually subsiding once the stressor is removed or persistent, lasting long after a stressor is removed and causing chronic …

However, using an emerging therapy can drastically reduce the frequency and intensity of bad dreams …
