I ’ ve Been Seeing a Therapist for Years, So Why Am I Not Getting Better?
The answer: We need to address what’s happening inside the office as well as stigma. During the creation of the documentary Going Sane I interviewed Cindy Bulik. She is perhaps the most important researcher on anorexia today. She lives between UNC where she is a distinguished Professor of Eating Disorders and Sweden where she is a professor at the Karolinska Institute. Her current research is exploring genetic influences on anorexia and by the end of our interview she asked if my entire family would be willing to give a sample of blood for the study. She is not the single-minded professor oblivious to social customs that is often portrayed in movies — quite the opposite. She is terribly charismatic and careful in her word placement. If she doesn’t like how she said something, she will try again until she feels she has communicated just what she means. And it is with that charming and careful exactness that she told me the American mental health system was “practically third world.” If you were there, you would have expect her to pause and reconsider her words — to add a disclaimer. I would not have been surprised if she had retracted the statement entirely. But she did not. She had said just what she wanted to say, and the purpose of this post is to explain what I believe she meant by it. Attributes of a Third World System The history of medicine up until the last century is almost entirely the history of placebo. The word placebo comes f...

Heart disease in pregnancy may manifest as acute coronary syndromes, decompensated valvular disease, and acute heart failure. These disease processes may represent progression of preexisting disease versus newly developed disease resulting from the physiologic changes of pregnancy. Early recognition of clinical presentations, judicious use of diagnostic studies, and multidisciplinary management of patient and fetal considerations can lead to optimal outcomes in this unique patient subset.
We examined if COPM initial and change scores related to personal characteristics of gender, class-level (e.g., Sophomore), and STEM education; if personal characteristics predicted a student's follow-through with an AT service referral (n = 231); and if personal characteristics and initial COPM scores predicted dropout from AT services (n = 187). COPM ratings significantly increased in all common academic tasks (p female ratings, p = .01). Gender also predicted Performance changes, with females being more likely to have a service-meaningful change (p = .02). Higher class-level...
