Today’s Video: A Homework Assignment for Anxious Kids

Rich Simon • 7/17/2014

Anxiety is a demanding beast, with a long list of conditions that must be met to keep it at bay. It forces anxious children and their families to banish uncertainty, avoid surprises, cling to safety and security—the list of demands could go on forever. Unfortunately, when anxiety is running the show in a child’s life, the family tends to become more and more inflexible.

Single-Session Cures with Anxiety Problems

Today’s Video: Are You Asking the Right Questions?

Rich Simon • 7/10/2014

When it comes to understanding your clients’ inner world, words can only go so far. Clients can use words to tell you what they’re conscious of (“My panic attacks come from nowhere!”), but they can’t tell you what they aren’t conscious of (“My panic attacks come from a preconscious desire to avoid embarrassment.”) The unconscious, where the origins of panic and anxiety reside, isn’t easily accessed through traditional talk therapy.

Why Today’s Teens Look for the Therapist’s Opinion

How Feedback Makes Young Clients Feel Valued

Rich Simon • 7/7/2014

Between the 24-hour news cycle, search engines, and face-to-face video chats, we live in an Age of Information, in which getting your questions answered is little more than a mouse click away. So is it any surprise that today’s young adults expect the same directness and immediate responsiveness from their therapists? According to Ron Taffel, adolescent therapist and author of Breaking Through to Teens, today’s youth look for concrete answers to their questions and problems in therapy. And they want them fast. Often you need to toss emotionless method-driven therapy to the wind, says Ron, and give young clients what they want: your honest opinion.

Phenylketonuria is a disease that results in mental retardation. It’s an inability of the infant’s body to get rid of an amino acid called phenylalanine. If you’re born with a certain gene, you can’t get rid of it and end up with mental retardation. But according to psychiatrist David Mays, author of the Major Mental Illness Pocket Guide, the way we treat phenylketonuria may be the way of the future in treating a range of psychological disorders.

According to interpersonal neurobiologist Dan Siegel, author of Brainstorm: The Power and the Purpose of the Teenage Brain, kids can actually find this information pretty cool when it’s articulated the right way.
