first_img Harvard panelists say disorders are increasingly common, and it’s time to swap stigma for solutions in the nation’s workplaces McLean Hospital psychologists are enlisting practices traditionally ignored as irrelevant to mental health care — religion and spirituality — as new allies in a program that blends them with counseling in patient therapy.David H. Rosmarin, director of McLean’s Spirituality and Mental Health Program and an assistant professor of psychology in Harvard Medical School’s Department of Psychiatry, developed the program in 2017 after a hospital survey showed that 80 percent of patients found religion useful in dealing with stress and that more than half wanted religion to be part of their treatment.The results indicated, he said, that religion and spirituality are not only potentially powerful forces in the emotional lives of many patients, but also that caregivers were missing an opportunity for healing.“There’s been a very tense history between religion and psychology especially. … Freud thought of religion as a neurosis. He believed that the only reason somebody would gravitate toward something spiritual was because of an unconscious conflict they had not managed to resolve in a healthy way,” Rosmarin said. “As a result, the field tends to ignore what many of our patients are experiencing, which is a shame.”To help fill the gap, Rosmarin developed SPIRIT — Spiritual Psychotherapy for Inpatient, Residential, and Intensive Treatment. Over the course of a one-year trial, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, nearly 1,500 patients voluntarily participated in SPIRIT group sessions, and more than 90 percent reporting getting something positive, including spiritual or religious resources helpful in their broader treatment. None reported negative effects.For Caryn Mooiman, the SPIRIT program was a welcome offering during a recent weeklong stay at McLean. The 61-year-old nurse had her life upended this fall by a phone call from a woman claiming to have been her husband’s mistress. The call sent Mooiman into a spiral of depression.“It just kind of shocked me and brought me to my knees,” Mooiman said. “I felt like I couldn’t deal with the pain of that situation, and I just wanted to die.”Mooiman, an Episcopalian who regularly reads the Bible and prays, said the SPIRIT session left her with a greater feeling of peace and acceptance, one that has endured in the weeks since she left McLean in mid-October.“It was very helpful,” Mooiman said. “In fact, I said to the woman [who led the SPIRIT session] that I wish that there were people like her out in the community that one could go to for spiritual therapy like you can go to psychotherapy.”The pilot program, described recently in the American Journal of Psychotherapy (AJP), is offered as one of several therapies in the context of an intensive clinical environment.The program grew out of the hospital’s efforts to evaluate diversity, with religion as one dimension explored. Once officials began looking, they found a significant unmet patient need.“Most people are spiritual in some way, shape, or form and that impacts greatly their experience of emotional distress,” said Brent P. Forester, McLean’s chief of geriatric psychiatry, associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and a co-author of the AJP paper. “Not attending to that aspect of someone’s life in psychiatric care means that we’re not really thinking about assessment and care of people with mental illness in a holistic way. … We thought it was important to pursue this intervention.” “Considering that for more than 100 years, religion and psychiatry have been at opposite ends of the universe, it’s pretty neat to be bringing them together at such a large scale within an academic psychiatry center.” — David H. Rosmarin Learning not to fear 35 minutes a day of physical activity may protect against new episodes, even in the genetically vulnerable Mindfulness meditation training alters how we process fearful memories, study says The age range of those attending stretches from 18 to 92, and Rosmarin said he was surprised to find no age-related differences in reported benefits. Similarly, although 54 percent were on antipsychotic medication and 42.2 percent had reported suicidal thoughts, neither group reported higher or lower benefits than those not on medication or without suicidal thoughts.Patients who reported being spiritual or religious — 77 percent of participants — were equally likely to benefit from the sessions. The 17.4 percent who were neither spiritual nor religious were less likely to report a benefit, though their average responses to a post-session survey showed they were “fairly” likely to get a benefit.Now out of its pilot phase, the program reaches some 3,500 McLean patients a year, Rosmarin said. The program is easily transplantable and could be offered at other psychiatric hospitals around the country.“Considering that for more than 100 years, religion and psychiatry have been at opposite ends of the universe, it’s pretty neat to be bringing them together at such a large scale within an academic psychiatry center,” Rosmarin said.

Lower risk of depression with elevated exercise The results highlighted the field’s blind spot, Rosmarin and Forester agreed. Counselors are trained to assess patients’ families, work lives, sex lives, even military experiences, but religion is typically left out, Forester said. Courses on religion and spirituality aren’t required parts of clinician training, with the result that even skilled counselors can be ill-equipped to handle patients’ religious and spiritual beliefs.“There’s no required coursework at all,” Rosmarin said. “Most of the clinicians I’ve interviewed haven’t even had a single class — a 60-minute class — on spirituality and religion. It’s a whole domain of life and it’s just not discussed. It’s completely ignored.”One doesn’t have to look far to recognize the opportunity for healing that is being missed, Rosmarin said. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), with more than 2 million active members at any one time, is the single most widely used mental health treatment in the world, and is responsible for more than half of U.S. adults in recovery from alcoholism.“The [third] step in AA is: ‘I give up control to a higher power,’” Rosmarin said. “The entire program is spiritually-based, from soup to nuts.”SPIRIT is designed to give the clinicians presenting it a large degree of flexibility. It occurs in a group setting and the program’s protocols suggest that clinicians start each 30- to 55-minute session with a disclaimer that it is not intended as a platform for espousing religious beliefs or for conversion. The session then moves on to an opening question on the importance of spirituality to group members’ mental health.The second half of the session relies on handouts developed by Rosmarin and colleagues intended to spark discussion and reflection on things like spiritual or religious beliefs, coping strategies, struggles related to faith or spirituality, prayer, forgiveness, and meditations on Judeo-Christian psalms or sacred verses from other faith traditions.Though the session focuses on faith and religion, Rosmarin said, it’s important that clinicians understand the primary goal is not to better understand the tenets of a faith or strengthen relationships with a higher power, but rather on clinical improvement. SPIRIT is careful to avoid promoting particular religious or spiritual views and instead seeks to help patients identify resources that can help in their recovery.“I think this is a great example of how nontraditional methods of supporting people with psychiatric illness are potentially beneficial,” Forester said.The program has been used by patients with mood and anxiety disorders, acute and chronic psychotic disorders, substance-use disorders, post-traumatic and dissociative disorders, eating disorders, and mood disorders of older adults. Some patients whose stay at McLean is relatively brief — days to a week — only attend one group session, while those there longer can attend weekly.last_img read more

first_img BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil – The Brazilian Army is seeking a return to being a home of Olympic champions. By Dialogo May 13, 2011 The army has made significant contributions to Brazil’s Olympic achievements. Brazil’s first Olympic gold medal was won by a soldier. And that was just the beginning. She won silver in the 2009 Modern Pentathlon World Cup Final, also held in Rio de Janeiro. In 2010, Marques came in second in the World Military Modern Pentathlon Championships in Prague in the Czech Republic and first at the Pan American Championships. In 2011, she turned her attention to the Modern Penthathlon World Cup and, of course, the Military World Games, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro from July 16-24. She has just placed fifth in the final series of the World Cup, in Hungary, after taking 17th in April, in Italy, and eighth, in February, in the United States. Marques attributes her success to the training she receives from the Brazilian Army, which is why she’s focused on winning gold at the Military World Games. “My goal for 2011 is the Military World Games,” says Marques, who said the army has led to her living a more disciplined life. “If I’ve managed to live and breathe the sport and to have the freedom to train my hardest, it’s because I’m in the military.” “Being an athlete requires focus. I had that focus from the day I joined the military,” Marques adds. “I bring it to my training as well as my life.” In the 1920 Olympics in Antwerp Belgium, Lt. Guilherme Paraense won gold in the free pistol competition. Fourteen-year-old revelation Marques also hopes to qualify for the 2012 Olympics in London. In her Olympic debut at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, she finished 18th. center_img Military victories Its best medal hopefuls are in the modern pentathlon, a sport in which athletes must shoot pistols, fence with épées, freestyle swim, show jump horses and run 3,000 meters. And Brazil has started to shine in the event. The favorite of the women’s division is Sgt. Yane Marques. The 27-year-old native of the town of Afogados de Ingazeira in the countryside of the state of Pernambuco is ranked sixth by the International Union of Modern Pentathlon. Marques was discovered by military team coach Maj. Alexandre França during a regional biathlon (swimming and running) in the city of Recife, in the state of Pernambuco, in 2003. By 19, Marques was challenged to become a skilled swordsman, marksman and equestrian. She mastered it all, and did so quickly. Frenchman Sebastien dos Santos, Marques’s fencing coach, was impressed by her performance during his first few training sessions. “Yane is very focused, as well as a quick learner,” says Santos, who also is coaching the U.S. team. “She made an impression on everybody, not just me.” Just four years after taking up the modern pentathlon, Marques already has racked up a string of impressive victories, including winning gold at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian Modern Pentathlon Confederation’s program PentaJovem brought the world the rookie sensation from Rio de Janeiro: Juliana Domingues. Domingues, 14, is the youngest pentathlete in South America. When she started the sport, her strength was riding a horse, but she quickly developed the other skills needed to compete for first-place finishes. Domingues has an ambitious goal: compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. “Every day I train, I think of the International Youth Olympic Games (in China) in 2014, and the Olympics in Rio,” she says. “I want to progress.” The PentaJovem program is based in Recife and in Rio de Janeiro. In Rio, about 50 young athletes are learning and practicing the sport at the Military Circle in the neighborhood of Deodoro. In the1952 Olympics in Helsinki Finland, Brazilian José Telles da Conceição won bronze in the high jump with a leap of 1.98 meters. And where was he introduced to the sport? At the Army Vocational School, where he was studying.last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo January 13, 2012 The reputation of the Netherlands as the go-to country for a legal joint will begin to vanish like a puff of smoke as sales to foreigners of cannabis and hashish in coffee shops are banned. The Dutch government has been clamping down on the sale of soft drugs since 2007 because of gang-related crime and concern about the risk to health, particularly as stronger forms of cannabis have been introduced. The new rules, which will first take effect in the south and gradually be extended countrywide, limit sales of cannabis to residents of the Netherlands who must enroll as members of a coffee shop. The rules came into effect on January 1, 2012, but will not be enforced until May 1, starting in the three southern provinces where drug tourism is most common and regarded as a problem by many local residents. The rest of the country, including Amsterdam, whose drugs scene is a tourist magnet, will enforce the new rules from January 1, 2013. From that year onwards, a coffee shop can have a maximum of 2,000 members. The Dutch government, whose push for a stricter drugs policy is led by the Christian Democrats party, will forbid any coffee shops within 350 meters of a school, effective in 2014. The government launched a plan to ban what it considered to be highly potent forms of cannabis –known as “skunk“– in October 2011, placing these in the same category as hard drugs such as heroin or cocaine.last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo July 01, 2015 The help the United States gives to troubled countries such as Haiti is very important as well as the humanitarian people of goodwill, who thanks to God, are located in countries where their citizens are usually the poorest and least protected. They are those most abandoned by their government leaders. Little visited cultural aspect, especially in my country. Argentina has water because that is what nature gave us. Political inability keeps millions from suffering floods and cities and town not having sewers. I associate what I read — water scarcity — with my country. Respectful regards. “The filter pores are so small (0.1 micron absolute) that no Cholera, Typhoid, and E. coli bacteria, protozoa or cysts can go through the membrane,” explained Hasy Gutierrez, OSC-N Program Manager. The filter attains the highest level of filtration available today at 99.99999%, while maintaining a very high flow rate due to the many tubes in each filter. With a lifespan of ten years or 1 million gallons of water per filter, the potential for long-lasting change and ripple effects for entire generations is clear. “Tasbapauni is the biggest community in the area,” said Gutierrez. “There are 350 families there; Orinoco, further north, has 190 families, and we have provided a filter to every home, every school, and every clinic or health center in the communities we’ve visited.” “[Waves for Water] was already doing work on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua when Brian was assigned as OSC-N Chief in Managua, so we both knew that this would be a great opportunity to collaborate again,” said Rose. “Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere (behind Haiti), so the needs are seemingly endless, and the timing was perfect. He knew that with our program he could make real solid and tangible impact.” Additionally, according to LTC Woolworth, Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast – called the Autonomous Region of the Southern Coast (RACS) and the Autonomous Region of the Northern Coast (RACN) – has had limited to minimal government influence and serves as one of the main international drug trafficking corridors through Nicaragua. They are inhabited by Garifuna communities that speak native Garifuna and Creole, and they seem to be worlds away from the rest of Nicaragua. When LTC Woolworth got stationed in Managua, Nicaragua to head the Office of Security Cooperation (OSC-N), he realized that clean water would be a godsend in the remote communities of Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast, which are part of the country’s autonomous region and remain culturally and geographically secluded from the rest of the country. “We collaborated on a few projects there,” Rose told Diálogo. “Because our program – aimed to bring clean water solutions to impoverished countries around the world – is so measurable and clear-cut, he [Lt. Col. Woolworth] was very happy with the results we had.” “In this case, it was the perfect scenario to implement a HAP project and bring together Nicaraguan and United States interagency efforts in a joint, long-term endeavor with lasting effects… we’re changing the lives of these communities with something so simple and low-cost,” said the OSC-N Chief. “And SOUTHCOM can replicate this in other partner nations in the region,” he added. HAP not only funds the assistance programs identified, but also helps build each country’s capacity to manage them. In coordination with Nicaragua’s Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education, the OSC plans to implement the water filter program by assessing, implementing, and monitoring 23 communities in the RACS and 12 communities in the RACN – all of which can only be reached by a small boat or panga after flying from Managua to Bluefields – throughout 2015 and 2016. Carla Jane, a teacher at the community school in Bluefields, agrees. “The filters have been very useful to us; they helped improve our health – there’s less diarrhea. We don’t even have a well. We get our well water by borrowing our neighbor’s well, but now we have clean water. It’s just great, and we’re very thankful for the help.” Knowing that a small, plastic filter can positively affect the lives of so many is a tangible, measurable effect, but putting numbers on the equation makes it that much more impactful: $3,000 (one of the minimal cost HAP projects) buys 40 buckets, 40 filters, pays for the operating costs of implementing them, and impacts the lives of at least 4,000 people. This program is definitely a significant drop of water in the bucket of positive change. Among the thousands of multi-national military forces, aid workers, and volunteers who inundated Haiti following the 2010 earthquake to provide relief assistance were two individuals that met by chance. U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Brian Woolworth was part of the United Nations military relief mission, and pro surfer Jon Rose, founder of non-profit organization Waves for Water, was working with the United Nations to distribute water filters from military bases to communities in distress. “Water is a basic element to health,” said Gutierrez. “The [Waves for Water] filters are able to filter most of the bacteria from the water these communities draw from wells and rain catcher systems, which cause them a lot of stomach problems and water-borne illnesses.” Part of the U.S. Southern Command’s (SOUTHCOM) outreach efforts with Central and South America and the Caribbean includes cooperative engagements such as the Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP). Through the military team in the Embassy, the partner nation government and interagency, and non-governmental organizations, SOUTHCOM identifies the specific needs of a given partner nation and works collaboratively to provide assistance and sponsor projects to benefit local communities. Between 2014 and 2016, the OSC-N and Waves for Water team plans to implement filters in about 23 communities along the South Atlantic coast and 12 more in the North Atlantic. So far, they’ve already delivered 868 filters in communities including Monkey Point, Rama Cay, Bluefields, Haulover, Pearl Lagoon, Kakabila, Brown Bank, La Fe, San Vicente, Orinoco, Marshall Point, and Tasbapauni. They were both there for the same purpose: to bring whatever aid they could to the devastated island nation and its people, hundreds of thousands who were left homeless and at the mercy of the international aid being provided for their food, shelter, and basic survival. Although it may have been a coincidental encounter in the midst of chaos, what came next was definitely not. The water filters are very simple, low-cost, and self-sustainable. At about 8 inches long and 2 inches in diameter, they’re called “point-of-use” hollow-fiber membrane filters because they’re not attached to a water line and can be placed on a counter in the home, school, or clinic. The technology was developed for kidney dialysis, and comprises tiny U-shaped micro tubes that allow the water to enter their cores through tiny pores. The filter has a flow rate of about 1 liter per minute, so it has the capability of filtering over 1,000 liters per day. And they don’t require anything more than the force of gravity, a bucket of water, a hose that is attached to the filter on one end and to the water on the other, and voilá, thousands of community members along the entire coast of Nicaragua get access to potable water, and with it a chance at cleaner, more sanitary conditions for better health, thus improving mortality rates, education levels, and quality of life. George Martin Collins, community leader at Brown Bank, told Diálogo they had already seen a difference. “We have seen fewer cases of diarrhea in our children. We are a very small community of 180 people, so this is a great improvement for us… Water is a source of life, and we need clean water for survival.” last_img read more

She keeps … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details Avoiding eye contactWhen you fail to look someone directly in the eye, it gives them the impression you are not invested in what they are saying. In order to show you’re paying attention, look your colleague in the eye and hold their gaze. Avoiding eye contact will convey to them that you are uninterested, bored, and untrustworthy.Obsessing over phoneThere’s nothing worse than a coworker who is constantly checking their smartphone. No matter how tempted you may be to give your phone a quick peek, don’t reach for it. Instead, leave it in your desk or bag and check it only when the time is appropriate. If you are always looking down at your phone instead of up and into the eyes of others, you will appear distracted from your work which will cause your colleagues to question your level of productivity.SlouchingIt’s important that no matter how casual your office environment is, you remain professional and put-together. Slouching and having bad posture portrays a lack of motivation and energy. Even if you are getting your work done, when you’re slouching at your desk or moping around the office, you will appear lazy and unenthused.InterruptingTaking part in conversations and showing interest in the topic by adding your input is valuable, but not if you’re constantly interrupting your coworkers. Not allowing them to finish their point before you jump in and steal the discussion is a major turnoff. No matter how excited you are to make your point, wait until they stop speaking or until they ask for input before piping up.Fidgeting There’s a reason why fidget spinners are the latest craze among children and adults worldwide. Many of us have nervous quirks we find hard to reel in, therefore taking advantage of spinners and other tricks for taming twitches is never a bad idea. If you’re nervously tapping your pen or your foot while others are speaking or trying to complete their work, they will become distracted and annoyed. This will affect how they feel about you so stop squirming, buckle down, and get back to work.last_img read more

first_imgNZ Herald 23 February 2014The parents of a seven-year-old transgender boy are in discussions with an independent film maker to chart the next decade of their child’s life as he undergoes medical changes.Born into a girl’s body, Ben Brockwell-Jones’ story hit the headlines last year after his parents Wes and Rebecca Jones made a controversial decision to start a process which would culminate in medically stopping the onset of female puberty.Last night, little Ben walked in the Pride Parade. Ben was a guest on the Israeli Embassy float, which faced political protest last night. Pink-clad protesters blocked the parade route and raised banners criticising “Israeli apartheid”. Four protesters were removed by security.But Ben was walking behind the float, so safely avoided protesters.The 7-year-old has been been living and attending school as a boy for more than a year after telling his parents he was not the little girl born to them.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11208173Gender Change A Recipe for ConfusionMedia Release 6 Oct 2013Family First NZ says that attempts to change the gender of a young girl are harmful and fail to recognise the unique nature of the child which should be celebrated, not drugged and surgically changed.“To think that drugs and a surgeon and a knife can change the gender of a child or young person is mythical. And to allow a child to make that type of decision is downright dangerous and ultimately harmful to the child,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.“What the child really needs is affirmation of their unique personality and appropriate treatment for their unhappiness and other presenting emotional issues – but definitely not gender confusion, drugs and a scalpel.”“Gender change is portrayed as being the best treatment but it fails to account for deep unresolved psychological issues. Studies show that over 50% of transgenders have had at least one suicide attempt by age 20. Even more harm themselves daily either by cutting or self-mutilation. Gender change does nothing to resolve these issues.”READ MORE https://www.familyfirst.org.nz/2013/10/gender-change-a-confused-response-to-unhappiness/last_img read more
