Authors: Prawiroharjo P, Ellydar H, Pratama P, Edison RE, Suaidy SEI, Amani NZ, Carissima D Abstract We aimed to find the differences in memory capabilities between pornography-addicted and nonaddicted juveniles.

Abstract PURPOSE: Gender inequality and sexism are often at the root of domestic violence against women and children, with both serving to justify male domination.

It makes perfect sense to me that employers would be very enthusiastic aboutbehavioral health as a component of their corporate wellness programs.
