  • Practical Tools for Developing Your Self-Worth

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:45 am
    So many of us think we’re unworthy or worthless or not good enough. We might feel this way because of our past or mistakes we’ve made. We might feel this way because some people repeatedly told us we’re unworthy. Or because we haven’t accomplished what we wanted to accomplish. Or because we haven’t fulfilled a number of expectations we had for our lives. If you feel this way, take heart: Whatever the reason, you can learn to accept, appreciate and even love yourself. You can build a strong self-worth. In her valuable book Who Am I Without You? 52 Ways to Rebuild Self-Esteem After A…

    The Beast Is Back: Depression If we go looking, we can find plenty to stress about: How will I pay the bills? What will the test results show? What if I get caught in traffic? But the biggest source of our stress comes from ruminating about the future. As if we didn’t have enough to worry about right now, when the check engine light is blinking and the minivan is filled with kidlets holding ice cream cones, we go and worry about something that might happen two weeks from now. Maybe. Perhaps. What’s up with that? I call it what-iffing. What if my kid doesn’t learn to read? What if I lose…

  • Roseroot herb shows promise as potential depression treatment option

    Mental Health Research News -- ScienceDaily
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:23 am
    Rhodiola rosea (R. rosea), or roseroot, may be a beneficial treatment option for major depressive disorder (MDD), according to results of a study. Depression is one of the most common and debilitating psychiatric conditions, afflicting more than 19 million Americans each year, 70 percent of whom do not fully respond to initial therapy. Costs of conventional antidepressants and their sometimes substantial side effects often result in a patient discontinuing use prematurely. Others opt to try natural products or supplements instead.

  • Component of red grapes, wine could help ease depression

    30 Mar 2015 | 10:44 am
    A link between inflammation and depression, which affects approximately 148 million people in the United States, has been identified by researchers. A new study finds that resveratrol -- a natural anti-inflammatory agent found in the skin of red grapes -- can prevent inflammation as well as depression-related behaviors in rodents exposed to a social stress.

    An unconventional way that serotonin is released from neurons could play an important role in the mechanism through which antidepressant drugs work, scientists report. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain that plays a key role in regulating various emotions and behaviors. An imbalance in serotonin signaling is generally thought to contribute to depression.

    In my previous post, I discussed the underlying emotional environment that can trigger migraines, or keep people who struggle with chronic migraines consistently close to the migraine threshold. There are many possible triggers for migraines, and, for people who struggle with non-organic chronic migraines, emotional history may have significant relevance to this picture. In my practice, I work with people who struggle with chronic migraines, utilizing a specialized form of psychotherapy that I refer to as “Migraine Therapy.” While each person who comes in is an individual with her…

    Watching the Soyuz launch to the International Space Station, I was overcome with how calm and focused the three astronauts on board appeared to be. The mission commander was peacefully controlling the Soyuz from an iPad while three stages of rockets pushed him into orbit at a rate of 4,000 miles per hour. American astronaut Scott Kelly will not return to earth for a year. Kelly is part of a NASA twin study to explore the health effects of long-term space flight. The study is integral to one day mounting a manned mission to Mars. Even though he leaves his family behind for 12 months, Kelly…

Science confirms that it’s no longer just about how you fight, it’s what you do after the argument that may determine if you’re going to go the distance. You’ve recently argued with your significant other. Things got more heated than usual, and now all you can think about is how you wish it would have happened. Maybe you fought dirty or didn’t get a chance to say how you really felt. Maybe the issue is still unresolved, and you don’t know how to reapproach the subject. So you…

    Traci Pedersen
    30 Mar 2015 | 5:45 am
    In order to protect males with low-testosterone from the effects of anxiety and depression, much of the testosterone in his brain must first be converted into estrogen, according to new findings by a researcher at Florida State University College of Medicine. Mohamed Kabbaj, a professor of biomedical sciences received a six-year grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to investigate the ways in which anxiety affects the sexes differently. Kabbaj already knew that testosterone tends to protect males from depression and anxiety, just as estrogen and progesterone do in females. He…

    Rick Nauert PhD
    30 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    New research shows how the brain can shift attention to a new strategy when it perceives a better way of doing something. Researchers at Princeton University, Humboldt University of Berlin, the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Berlin, and the University of Milan-Bicocca, found that activity in a region of the brain known as the medial prefrontal cortex keeps focus from becoming too fixed. Investigators discovered the brain region was involved in monitoring what is happening outside one’s current focus of attention and shifting focus from a successful strategy to one…

Music performance is known to induce structural and functional changes to the human brain and enhance cognition. But the molecular mechanisms underlying music performance have been so far unexplored. In the new study, researchers investigated the effect of music performance (in a two hr concert) on the gene expression profiles of professional musicians from Tapiola Sinfonietta (a professional orchestra) and Sibelius-Academy (a music university).

The study is published in the British Journal of Psychiatry. It has been shown that low educational attainment is strongly associated with mental illness.

Researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and University College of London (UCL) Institute of Child Health, a research partner of Great Ormond Street Hospital, also found that parents are more likely to underestimate their child’s weight if they are black or South Asian, from more deprived backgrounds, or if their child is male. As childhood obesity has increased in the UK, the government has put in…

  • Brain networks differ among those with severe schizophrenia, study shows

    18 Mar 2015 | 10:03 am
    People with a severe form of schizophrenia have major differences in their brain networks compared to others with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and healthy individuals, a new study shows. Schizophrenia, which affects one in 100 people, is generally known for symptoms of delusions and hallucinations, which can be treated with antipsychotic medications. However, lack of motivation and social withdrawal are also characteristic symptoms of the illness.

  • Antibodies to brain proteins may trigger psychosis

    5 Mar 2015 | 5:13 am
    Antibodies defend the body against bacterial, viral, and other invaders. But sometimes the body makes antibodies that attack healthy cells. In these cases, autoimmune disorders develop. Immune abnormalities in patients with psychosis have been recognized for over a century, but it has been only relatively recently that scientists have identified specific immune mechanisms that seem to directly produce symptoms of psychosis, including hallucinations and delusions.

    Research suggests that the ratio of the lengths of the index finger and the ring finger in males may be predictive of a variety of disorders related to disturbed hormonal balance. When the index finger is shorter than the ring finger, this results in a small 2D:4D ratio, pointing to a high exposure to testosterone in the uterus.

However the UK has been at the forefront of research into the psychology of psychosis conducted over the last twenty years, and which reveals that this view is false.

No matter how much everything around us may change or collapse, they endure. Say we go through a shattering emotional crisis … our whole life seems to be disintegrating … our husband or wife suddenly leaves us without warning. The earth is still there; the sky is still there. Of course, even the earth trembles now and again, just to remind us we cannot take anything for granted … [click on title for the rest of the post]

    Anyway -- any mental health professional that doesn't recognize that the mental health system is rife with potential abuse and harm is dangerous to those who've already been harmed and to many who may yet be harmed. There are many folks in the system at this point that actually do understand the reality. Times are, indeed, changing. I see lots of reason to hope. I have many friends who are working in and out of the system as knowledgable and competent professionals. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

I didn’t want to just leave the last entry hanging, but I’ve had horrendous writers’ block on this subject for reasons I explain in my very first video blog! I am as shattered as I look. My first go was much better but Robert walked in in his pants. This video talks through, “The birth plan” that was coming up in my last entry. So, I explain what perinatal psychiatry would like to do when the baby comes, and my feelings on that. And if the baby ever comes- I’m 40 weeks and three…

    Mental illness isn’t the bogeyman. I’ve been quite quiet here. It’s not as though I haven’t been trying. See? Those drafts were mostly interrupted by bouts of exhaustion and blankness. I’d tried to write something funny and light, but it felt quite forced. What’s prompting me to write today is the heartbreaking death of Charlotte Bevan and her four day old daughter, Zaani.  What’s known is that Charlotte had a history of mental health issues- namely schizophrenia and depression, according to her family- was severely sleep deprived and had stopped…

    phillynow
    27 Mar 2015 | 11:56 am
    By Jake Abbate Last Wednesday, Jordan Dreyer woke up in a Sports Authority parking lot in Orland Park, Illinois, and until the early hours of the afternoon, the day’s significance had apparently eluded him:  it was March 18, meaning it was exactly one year ago that he and his band, La Dispute, dropped their highly anticipated third full-length record, Rooms of the House.  It seems like a pretty big milestone to forget, considering the LP netted some of the most favorable reviews of their now decade-long existence and coincided with a rather intense touring schedule—more than 70 shows in…

    While the TARDIS-loving subset of local science-fiction lovers may be hitting the road this weekend to attend (Re)Generation Who, the mid-Atlantic Doctor Who convention on the outskirts of Baltimore, there’s a more intimate, literary-minded geekfest about to materialize right in the heart of Rittenhouse Square. The new issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction, the leading sf short-story magazine, features four Philly authors at the top of its table of contents: beloved fantasy novelist Gregory Frost, Nebula Award winner Michael Swanwick, short-story guru Tom Purdom and up-and-comer…
  • Do this: Saturday’s midnight performance of The Rocky Horror Show Live!

    Bill Chenevert
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:59 am
    First, an admission: I’d never gone to one of those midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, where enthusiasts dress up in corsets and bondage gear to shout interjections at the screen and finish the characters’ lines. The closest I’ve gotten to that kind of camp-cult experience was a colorful screening of Labyrinth at Bard College when I was in high school. But last Saturday night, I made it up to The Papermill in Kensington to see BrainSpunk Theater’s live stage version of Richard O’Brien’s sci-fi/queer/horror musical, and I was blown away.

This was how she chose to beckon us closer to the stage? I wondered, for a moment, if I was in the wrong industry. Growing up, I worked out a lot. My parents were both coaches, and my mom was a regular at a little gym owned by a Romanian ex-Olympian who trained power lifters. When I was 12, he tried to…

In a press release dispatched earlier this week, the agency explains that “due to the extreme weather the city has experienced over the past several winters, an unusually high number of our trash trucks have been scrapped or are in the shop for major repairs.  As a result, trash pickup has been impacted citywide with scattered one day collection delays.” In other words, put your trash out as you typically do,…

    13 Feb 2015 | 3:51 am
    I'm not sure what you perceive about me from what I write here, but in my daily life I focus on pushing myself beyond my limits. I haven't met a limit I respect yet, and I am always looking for ways to do an end run around them. However, I do recognize limits. I have to. You can't design effective coping strategies if you don't recognize your limits. The important distinction is that recognizing isn't the same as accepting. For instance, I know that in order to write for a living, I will need to write thousands of words a day—thousands of focused words on a defined project, not random…

    (credit: Kendrea Johnson Family)Recently, I read about Kendrea Johnson, a six year old girl who allegedly hung herself with a jumprope. Her case has bothered me deeply not just because it was a senseless death of an innocent child, or because of the sadness she must have experienced by being put into the foster care system, or even just because the idea of a six year old struggling with suicidal ideation is so disturbing. I was bothered because I do not know how I could have helped such a child if I had been given the opportunity. “I’m sorry.” “I’m sad for what I do.”These notes,…

    Dan
    16 Mar 2015 | 7:33 am
    Why did you write your newest book, Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion? Because it was a natural evolution from the book that preceded it, Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life, and because I’m just fascinated by how people manage to hold on to their vitality and life force against all the downward-pulling forces of life and culture. In the Introduction to Vital Signs, you write that the book is geared towards “being in love with life” versus your first book, Callings, that addressed “doing what you love”. In what ways are the two the same thing? In what ways…
  • Perfectionism and Depression: Nobody’s Perfect

    Dan
    16 Mar 2015 | 7:32 am
    We often mix-up a drive to excel and perfectionism; they’re not the same thing. A drive to be your very best can leads to a sense of self-satisfaction and self-esteem. It feels good to give it all we got. Perfectionism? It’s a horse of a different color. People who feel driven in this direction tend to be more motivated by external forces – such as the desire to please others rather than themselves. Common and recurring thoughts of perfectionists include: Anything short of excellent is terrible I should be able to do/solve this quickly/easily I am best handling this myself I must find…

  • The Mystery Behind Dreams And Mental Disorders

    admin
    30 Mar 2015 | 5:54 am
    Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist, who became known as the father of psychoanalysis. He believed that while poets and thinkers had long known of the existence of the unconscious, it received scientific recognition in the field of psychology. The unconscious was first introduced in connection with the phenomenon of repression, to explain what happens to ideas that are repressed. Freud stated explicitly that the concept of the unconscious was based on the theory of repression. He postulated a cycle in which ideas are repressed, but remain in the mind, removed from consciousness yet…
  • Dreams That Reflect Behavioral Abnormalities

    The false world imposes its hypocrisy to the population. Your anti-conscience imposes its absurdity to your conscience. Therefore, you are manipulated by the world and by your absurd anti-conscience all the time. This is why you don’t pay attention to your reality as it really is. Instead of being realistic, you like to follow your imagination. This is the first behavioral abnormality you must avoid. The tendency to follow your imagination is very dangerous when you are trying to solve your problems. Your imagination is helpful when you are trying to be creative, but it is extremely…
  • Do You Pay Attention To What Is Bad?

    We prefer to ignore what is bad, and we try to define what is negative in a positive way. We usually justify what is negative as something that should be accepted because it is part of the human nature, as if our defects should be simply accepted instead of corrected. This tendency to justify what is negative and to interpret what is bad in a positive way is an idiotic attitude imposed by our anti-conscience. We adopt the behavioral patterns of our wild conscience without understanding the meaning of our actions. We believe that this is the way we have to behave only because we have the…

    19 Mar 2015 | 3:43 pm
    The dream messages always are serious because they are about your mental health and the dangers that are threatening your peace of mind. Even simple dream scenes contain important symbolic messages. What is a symbolic message? First of all, let me explain the meaning of a symbol. A symbol is an image that represents something else. For example, a large amount of water in dreams represents materialism. Therefore, a flood represents materialism. This is its symbolic meaning. A large amount of water always represents materialism. The swimming pool and the water of the river represent materialism…

    In the beginning of 1989 when I discovered the existence of the anti-conscience after continuing Carl Jung’s research in the human psyche through dream interpretation, I had to get adapted to this discovery. This was a difficult matter because I couldn’t prove what I had discovered to the world. I was the only one who had this information. I concluded that only if I would publish a book proving to the world what I had discovered would the world understand the truth. However, I had to stop writing the scientific book I was writing since February of 1988 with the intention to prove to…

    Nothing is harder than the job of motherhood. You’ve heard this before. But it’s truth is ringing so loudly in my ears right now. Perhaps the most difficult part of the job is the mirror that shines back at me, the amount of self-reflection and judgment turned inward, that comes my way when I see one of my children struggling.

    Maria Hill
    30 Mar 2015 | 3:10 am
    Army Photography Contest – 2007 – FMWRC – Arts and Crafts – Fallin Self pity and grieving are very different.  Self pity is the stuckness of despair. It can be a bitter feeling of longing for something you cannot have but need. Often what we want does not seem like too much to ask, which is why self pity can be so painful. Sometimes it feels like the end of the world. Self Pity And The Loss Of The Self Self pity can be very difficult to handle not only because it can be tied to our dreams but also because it can be tied to the expression of the good in ourselves and…
  • Feelings—A Sensory Tracking Device For An Overstimulated World

    Pamina
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:10 am
    Source: refeia – Flickr Feelings are our sensory feedback system. They provide us with vital information that we need to take care of ourselves and keep ourselves on track. But we’re trapped in a blizzard of ever increasing stimuli. The sensory pressures many of us are exposed to on a daily basis are enough to kill a cage full of lab rats. Sensory overload is becoming a way of life—but are our biological systems designed for this kind of sensory terrorism?

However, we didn’t delve into that much detail about it. Most people know that drugs can have debilitating effects not only on the brain, but also your overall well-being. Obviously, different drugs have different side-effects on the brain.Alcohol and nicotine, even though are legal substances, are considered drugs.

    By guest author Andy Alt, mental health consumer, blogger Andy’s blog is http://mentaldimensions.net/ I’m somewhat concerned about treatment options available for mental illness. I’m of the opinion that psychotropic drugs are over-prescribed. I believe their efficacy is overstated, and the risks understated.

For instance, on NAMI’s website, under Medications ->Paxil -> common side effects: Feeling nervous, restless, fatigued, sleepy or having…

It never held me back from things.  I struggled internally, but I could cope well in situations where I was uncomfortable. I was overwhelmed with my daughter’s diagnosis.  I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t turn my mind off, and I was shutting down every emotion I was feeling.

  • Gaslighting in Therapy

    29 Dec 2014 | 10:19 pm
    If you Google the word “gaslighting,” here is what comes out as its definition: manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity. Unfortunately, gaslighting (or in other words, crazymaking), is not an uncommon occurrence in therapy. Damaging, as it would be in any relationship, gaslighting may cause tenfold harm when it is taken place in therapy, as the client is usually under the significant psychological pressure to accept the therapist’s suggestions, since the therapist is in the expert’s role in this relationship.

For example, it is commonly stated that many psychiatric illnesses, like major depression, are due to chemical imbalances in the brain. This theory is adopted as the reason for severe depression, with the brain held hostage to the vicissitudes of neurotransmitters and medications. However this is problematic in that it treats the brain as if it existed in a vacuum and not as a member of the rest of the body, being…

    Happiness India Project Happiness India Project - Happiness is more than a smile!   “Welcome to the party! Come right in – join in the fun! Let me take you around to meet some great guys!” If that’s the kind of welcome you receive at the door of a common friend’s party, the first thought that flashes through your mind is, ‘I like this person! She’s cool.’ Are Extroverts Happier Than Us? So, you like her ‘cool quotient’. Now, if anyone is to ask what you mean by ‘cool’, you probably would offer these explanations: She loves people. She is socially…

    Last week I was on holiday in the French alps learning to snowboard. Now, snowboarding was something that I had resisted for a while. My other half is mad keen on snowboarding, I mean, totally obsessed, but I’d been massively put off by my experience a few years ago when I first tried to learn to ski. Back then, anxiety had gotten the better of me. On the slopes, I was constantly tense, fearful of the mountain and terrified I’d injure myself. I hated the ski lifts, despised the steepness of the slopes and couldn’t wait for the holiday to end. All in all an unpleasant…

  • Self Healing: A Few Things I Have Learned

    Dianna Bonny
    30 Mar 2015 | 6:46 am
    This is a repost that still feels as true as the day I wrote it nearly two years ago. My how times flies when you aren’t looking! If you have been thrown into the fire of loss, then you will know the feeling of treading upon the anniversary of these things with care. These days demand a certain kind of attention, a sacred acknowledgement of all that has passed. Three years ago (tomorrow), I never would have imagined the events that unraveled my life leaving me alone, the solo parent of three gorgeous humans who did not deserve this fate. It never factored into how I saw my life going,…

    A couple weeks ago, I talked about the trials and tribulations of doing video work. Today, I learned that I needn’t have been so worried about it being perfect because apparently a highly skilled video editor can remove any and all imperfections. It made me laugh to think of how hard I tried to get the lighting, sound and actual words just right. It can all be corrected behind the scenes. Wouldn’t it be nice if life were like that? The video is for an upcoming tele-seminar series I have been working on. It is something I have resisted for a long time because trying to encapsulate the…
  • Are You A Creature Of Habit?

    Dianna Bonny
    23 Mar 2015 | 7:42 am
    I have three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Long name for a small dog. I adore them of course, but three dogs equals three dogs. Three bowls of food, three baths, three leashes to handle on a walk. You get the picture. Their most coveted moment is when I allow them on the bed. They all curl up around me despite the vast expanse of the King size mattress. It reminds me of people at a party who gather in the kitchen, no matter how big the house might be. What I notice lately is how much my dogs operate from habit, from the minute I open the door to the laundry room in the morning, until the…
  • Life Through The Lens Of Radical Forgiveness

    Dianna Bonny
    20 Mar 2015 | 6:14 am
    Forgiveness and gratitude are having their moment in the spotlight these days. I hear the words almost daily either via emails, social media or conversations. They remind me of a few years ago when authenticity had its day in the sun. Not to sound cynical or anything, I just think we have to be careful about flying these word flags without truly taking the time to define them for ourselves. Lest the become weapons we turn against ourselves, and others, and we have enough of those already. I have been asked many times if I have forgiven my husband for what he did. Sometimes it is a loaded…
  • Confidence And Mastering New Skills: Making Videos

    I have been working on creating a tele-seminar. The photo above is my living room, rearranged and full of the various components necessary to create videos. These things take a while to organize, and more time and courage than one might imagine. They require a lot of back talk to the inner critic as well, because putting any kind of work out into the world can attract criticism, both real and imaginary. Gathering all the information to host this kind of event is a job in and of itself, but then there is the marketing, an entirely different matter. Some of the marketing will be done…

    The Mental FilterIn my last blog post I discussed one of the popular cognitive distortions that we can easily fall into which was jumping to conclusions. Today I want to talk about the mental filter...What Is The Mental Filter?This is when you pick out a single negative detail that has happened and dwell on it, so that your vision of all reality becomes clouded, a useful analogy would be a drop of black ink that discolours the entire cup of water.Jamie started the day off badly, he looked in the mirror and hated what he saw, he then took that negative distortion and continued to dwell on it…

Today I want to talk about Jumping To ConclusionsJumping To ConclusionsWhen you  make a negative interpretation even though there are no definite facts that convincingly support your conclusions....For example, Jamie has a very low opinion of himself, in fact, at times he hates himself, and because he sees himself as ugly he 'assumes' that everyone else thinks the…
  • Are You Worth It?

    Feelings of 'unworthiness' 'self loathing' and 'self hatred' feed our low perception of ourselves.... But where did these feelings come from? They didn't just didn't appear as if by magic, someone put them there, and like a small seed they have grown and escalated beyond control, so much so that these feelings now govern and rule our lives intensely.Remember The Broken Gramophone Record!!!! Just like the proverbial gramophone record where the needle gets stuck, so do our negative feelings that we have in our head, that play over and over and over again.

So, welcome to 'MindSugar', where I will be categorizing my tips into different 'sugar' fixes for your mind.The idea behind it is that when you feel low, miserable.. or fat, you usually…
