Hitler's Children, Other Children, Myself, Ourselves: Legacies of Psychological Trauma

Those who have experienced extreme trauma and their descendents have taught us much about resilience, renewal, and redemption—outcomes that are all recalled in this period of the Jewish Passover, Christian Easter, and Holocaust Memorial Week.

No Child Left Undiagnosed
#psychiatrictimes   #ADHD  

“Sluggish Cognitive Tempo” (SCT) may possibly be the very dumbest and most dangerous diagnostic idea I have ever encountered.

And I have seen some beauts during my 40 years of shooting down crazy new diagnostic dream lists. The wild suggestions are usually created by “experts” brimfull with diagnostic exuberance—sometimes well meaning, sometimes influenced by extensive drug company affiliations—and always ungoverned by simple common sense, a respect for scientific evidence and an appropriate fear of risky unintended consequences.

Researchers concluded that certain observable changes in the brain’s responses to drinking cues do help identify future problem drinkers.
People who regularly consume alcohol in large amounts significantly increase their chances of developing clinical symptoms of alcohol use disorder (the combined term for alcohol abuse and alcoholism). In a study published in April 2014 in the journal Addiction, researchers from five U.S. institutions used brain imaging to determine if it’s possible to predict which …

Daffodils as Antidepresssants (What Wordsworth Knew)
#psychiatrictimes   #PTSD   #depression  

Treatment trends come and go, but nature is forever. Today’s miracle cures may become tomorrow’s poisons—but the allure of daffodils endures. Wordsworth recognized that fact over 2 centuries ago when he penned his poem “Daffodils.”

Written in 1804, and originally titled “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” Wordsworth’s daffodils poem became the most read poem in the English language. His words relieved the deep and dark depression of John Stuart Mills (1806-1873), who went on to become the 19th century’s most significant English-speaking philosopher. Wordsworth also influenced asylum superintendents, alienists, and psychiatrists, inspiring 19th-century “nature cures.” Tranquil landscapes were part of the therapeutic regimen at asylums.

Creativity and Mental Illness
#psychiatrictimes   #neuropsychiatry  

Recent large-scale registry and brain imaging studies are exploring the validity of this ancient observation, which linked creativity/genius and psychopathology. The results are mixed. Since the terms “genius” and “creativity” have different definitions, Psychiatric Times asked neuropsychologist and creativity expert Rex Jung, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery, University of New Mexico, to clarify how the terms are being used in scientific studies.

April 16 is an awareness day for all those that self harm, are suicidal, depressed, unhappy, have anxiety, a broken heart, or lost a loved one. A semicolon on your wrist represents a sentence that an author could have ended but didn't. The author is you and the sentence is your life. Help raise awareness to help those in need to choose life.
