From 2007: Try to remember - making sense of memory
Memory plays an important role in guiding people through their lives. But experts say that as the years go by and we grow and develop, our recollections adjust with us, whether we know it or not. Russ Mitchell talks with NYU research psychologist Elizabeth Phelps about the elasticity of memory, and with veteran writers David Halberstam, Gay Talese and A.E. Hotchner, who have all navigated that murky area between history and memory. Originally broadcast January 7, 2007; winner of a 2008 News Emmy Award for Outstanding Feature Story in a Regularly Scheduled Newscast. (Source: Health News: CBSNews.com)

Book Review: What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew
While ADHD can rob children of the executive functioning skills that are pivotal in life, it can also rob both them and their parents of the very relationship that can help improve those skills. More often than not as ADHD children struggle to complete tasks, remember important items, and focus attention long enough to hold a conversation, their parents find themselves equally frustrated, and most likely, not in the best place to parent them. What is missing is understanding. In her new book, What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids for Success in School and Life, Sharon Saline, Psy.D., offers...

‘Indelible in the Hippocampus Is the Laughter.’ The Science Behind Christine Blasey Ford’s Testimony
Christine Blasey Ford drew heavily on her psychology background while giving an emotional testimony about her alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, discussing everything from brain chemistry to risk factors for anxiety. Ford, a professor of psychology at Stanford University and Palo Alto University, used her scientific expertise to answer questions from Sen. Dianne Feinstein and others about her allegations that Kavanaugh pushed her onto a bed, covered her mouth and attempted to remove her clothes, with intent to rape her, during a Maryland high school party in the 1980s. Ford also said a second ...

Why some parents are worried about schools requiring ‘mental health’ disclosures
This story is from Kaiser Health News. Children registering for school in Florida this year were asked to reveal some history about their mental health. The new requirement is part of a law rushed through the state legislature after the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. On registration forms for new students, the state’s school districts now must ask whether a child has ever been referred for mental health services. “If you do say, ‘Yes, my child has seen a counselor or a therapist or a psychologist,’ what does the school then do with th...

Standardization of EMS Simulation Activities Improves the Learning Experience
Conclusion Standardization is an essential consideration for any simulation activity. The level of standardization must be specifically chosen and incorporated into the design to ensure that each simulation is appropriate and useful. It’s not acceptable to simply place the manikin on a table, or throw the manikin down into the mud and recreate a patient encounter that was “cool” from the last shift. Standardization within simulation activities improves quality and the experience for learners. It also enhances the efforts of proper simulation design, execution and debriefing making the effort of evidence-b...

Loneliness is on the rise in the U.S., and no one is immune. Research published earlier this year found that people 18 to 22 years old were more likely than any other U.S. population to be lonely. But new data suggests that older adults are also lonely in high numbers. More than a third of adults over 45 are lonely, according to a new report from the AARP Foundation. While that percentage (35%) remains unchanged from a 2010 version of the survey, the over-45 population has increased substantially during those eight years — meaning about 5 million more adults, almost 48 million in total, can now be considered lonely. ...

Book Review: Understanding Antidepressants
One in five Americans will have a major depressive episode in their lives and many will seek help from a mental health provider, which may include treatment with medication. As with all medication, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan when it comes to antidepressants. The terminology alone is confusing. There are SSRIs, tricyclics, and other drugs that have off-label uses. For those who take antidepressants, it is a challenge to find the right one. Some work better than others for individuals, and family members may not understand why it is difficult to find something that “works.” In Understanding Anti...

“Most people who feel trapped by shyness or social anxiety will settle with the status quo and never seek help, be it from a knowledgeable therapist or from finding a scientifically based self-guided program and tackling it on their own,” writes Dr. Eric Goodman. Instead, social anxiety becomes a sort of silent suffering that is endured for years, coloring the way we think, interact, and feel when around other people. Yet, the idea that social anxiety is a disease that needs to be cured is just one of the many myths that often keeps us from getting help. In his new book, Social Courage: Coping and Thriving...

Book Review: The Anxiety Management Workbook
Although it is a normal human emotion and an adaptive response to threatening situations, anxiety can feel overwhelming, often trapping us in a loop of automatic thoughts that lead to physiological responses that convince us something is wrong. The result is a host of behaviors that help us avoid anything that triggers our anxiety, but which, over time, only causes it to increase. Moreover, should we reach for something to help us calm down — such as alcohol, a cigarette, or marijuana — it can make our anxiety even worse. Overcoming anxiety, says Renee Mill, takes more than a little practice. In her new book, T...
