There is hope amidst environmental anxiety, says a scholar of ecotheology

(University of Helsinki) Climate change affects everyone. Awareness of the vast scope and rapid pace of the required adjustments may cause feelings of impotence. According to Panu Pihkala, an ecotheologian, the power of constructive actions and political influence is also inherent in the correct processing of eco-anxiety.

ConclusionsAlthough global QOL after CRS-HIPEC was not affected by the type of bowel resection, the use of LAR and ostomies was associated with clinically meaningful and persistent impairments in BR-QOL and related functional domains. Generic QOL questionnaires may not adequately capture these domains; however, targeted questionnaires in these patients may help improve QOL after CRS-HIPEC.

At a recent rally in Washington DC, Catholic students from Kentucky’s Covington High School encountered Native American elder Nathan Phillips. Things occurred. Words were said. Spectators captured images. Within minutes, the media went wild. Divergent factions accused each other of bigotry, harassment, violently punishable crimes — and the ultimate modern-day offense: spreading fake news. As now occurs so often, amidst a maelstrom of ever-more-adjustible pictures and words, real-life events become hazy accounts, transferred...

Matt, a 34-year-old data analyst from Texas, and his wife dated for seven years before getting married in 2013. When they didn’t live together, they had sex every time they saw each other.

The mental health community must increase its clinical acumen regarding complex psycho-pathology consisting of the avoidant personality, social impotence, and related rage. School violence has taken on epidemic proportions since two disturbed adolescents masterminded Columbine and became role models for the mentally ill young men who drive the new culture of school shootings.

For the mental health profession to increase its cl...
