What Are Barriers and Facilitators of Transitioning Youth to an Adult Health Care Provider?
Discussion Transitioning patients within or across health care facilities is a complex process. It is not a single step or point in time. For many patients the transition from pediatric to adult health care can be uncomplicated as patients and health care providers are ready for the transition and are seeking it. It should be a part of “developmental milestone” for adolescent visits. Asking adolescents about their future plans especially after high school or college often easily segues into this discussion easily. For other patients and families, there is anxiety and fear about the transition process. For yout...

Science of anger: how gender, age and personality shape this emotion
What purpose does anger serve? Are men angrier than women? Can it affect our mental wellbeing? Science is beginning to uncover some of the answersAnger is the flash of fire that sparks in your brain when you feel you have been shortchanged. Perhaps a stranger has nipped into the parking space that you had been about to occupy, or a lazy work colleague has landed you with a thankless task. Or maybe you have been confronted with a deep, hurtful betrayal by someone you love.Anger is one of the most primitive emotions we experience – animals are equipped with the same basic neural circuitry.

Extreme trauma leaves a legacy of pain for victims – and their children
A psychotherapist explains the sense of danger she felt growing up as the daughter of war-traumatised parentsIn the spring of 2016, I sat on the beach on the far east side of the island of Cyprus not far from where my father lives, and looked across to Syria. I imagined, in that moment, that I had lost my home, that everything was lost. It was quiet on the shore, just a few miles from the border that divides the island. There were few tourists at that time of year and the seascape before me was a shimmering, turquoise paradise. A mere boat ride away, bombs were falling and people dying. The level of destruction was, and is...

Book Review: Healing Relational Trauma  with Attachment-Focused Interventions
For a young child, traumatic experiences can lead to a pattern of mistrust, anticipation of further trauma, avoidance, and difficulty relating to others. Their development can be compromised. Their sense of self can become fractured, and their lives become merely an expression of their trauma. Helping children like this requires a deeply sensitive clinical approach that begins with the children’s relationships. “When children develop patterns of survival that involve them relying on themselves, not others, they do so out of a profound mistrust that others will meet their needs and will do what is best for them,...

The team also reports that each of these factors is associated with different aspects of working memory. Working memory is the part of short-term memory that temporarily stores and manages information required for cognitive tasks such as learning, reasoning, and comprehension.
