Parental Awareness Tools that Reduce Childhood Trauma
Since we are living in a time of extremely high statistical occurrences of childhood anxiety, depression and even suicide (which is happening at even younger ages), we need to look at the causes that are behind these difficult challenges that children, teens and young adults are facing today. Whether it be parental influences, interactions with abusive outsiders, school bullying, or something else, mental illnesses are growing at a rampant rate. When mental illness is not alleviated, it can create C-PTSD (compound or complex PTSD), so it’s critical to reverse it early. What sometimes keeps the underlying factors of mental illness from accurately being addressed is that parents may not see the feelings of anxiety or depression as transient emotions that need to be processed, but instead create fixed labels. A child shouldn’t be labeled as “anxious child so-and-so” or “depressed teen so-and-so” but instead one should look behind the symptom at why they are feeling this way. You wouldn’t label a child a physical state such as “child with a fever and flu disorder”; you would help them heal from having a fever and flu. How ludicrous to call children the symptom of a passing disease they are suffering from instead of finding ways to remove it. Anxiety and depression are symptoms of outside stress. Fever, headaches, coughing are symptoms of outside bacteria and viruses. Although there are many factors that contribute ...

Authors: Annette S, Stephan G, Mueser KT, Martin H, Elisabeth R, Ulrich G, Marketa C, Rolf E, Hans-Jürgen M, Peter F Abstract Neuropsychological functioning turns out to be a rate-limiting factor in psychiatry. However, little is known when comparing neuropsychological and psychosocial functioning in inpatients with schizophrenia or severe depression in their treatment pathways including add-on psychoeducation or the latter combined with cognitive behavioral therapy up to 2-year follow-up. To evaluate this question, we investigated these variables in two randomised controlled trials including 196 patients with...

For millions of Americans, these are challenging times. For some insight into resilience from a generation that survived a depression and world war, Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz turns to funnymen Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner. Via cyberchat, the two comedy writers, who first met in the 1950s ("Call it laugh at first sight"), talk about enduring World War II and coming out on top. Mankiewicz also talks with "Star Trek" actor and activist George Takei (who as a child was detained in a Japanese-American internment camp in the 1940s) about what Americans look for when facing an uncertain future.
The coronavirus pandemic has meant that Mosaic, a Bronx, N.Y. non-profit mental health center, had no choice but to close its doors to in-person visits. To address the needs of its patients, Mosaic's staff of counselors and therapists took drastic measures, switching all mental health counseling to teletherapy – therapeutic sessions conducted over the phone. Susan Spencer reports on the altered dynamics of teletherapy, and how patients whose feelings of helplessness and anxiety are being compounded by a catastrophically anxious time are getting help.
