If there is one movie you watch this month, make it Pixar's lovely, intelligently made "Inside Out". 
It talks about our core emotions- joy, sadness, fear, anger and disgust- from the mind of an 11 year old. Beautifully explained and so moving, we would recommend it to adults and children :)

Pixar's animated fantasy takes viewers inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl named Riley. Psychologists say the film offers an accurate picture of how emotions and memories help make us who we are.

"You can’t expect your car to keep functioning perfectly without maintaining it. The choice you have is whether to stay on top of the small stuff, catching developing problems before they get worse, or wait for the explosive, disastrous problems to invariably occur down the line."

A helpful, insightful analogy that talks about why it is important to maintain your relationships:

"Virtually all of us want to be liked and understood by our therapist. It's human. And many of us fear that if we show them all the different parts of our personality, including the parts we're embarrassed by, they either won't like us or they will misunderstand us. But here's the deal: We all have a dark side -- you're not alone in this. And the more we try to deny that dark side, the worse it gets. Like a wound that's been under a bandage, it's going to need air and light to heal eventually. And therapy is a good place to start to air it out."

In the first part of a five-part series on how to make your time in therapy effective, Dr. Gary Trosclair talks about dropping our masks in the client-therapist relationship:
To get the most out of psychotherapy try to show as many of the different parts of your personality in your session as you can. We all wear masks -- personas -- to get along in less intimate settings such as professional situations, and to get through difficult times.

"Why is our relationship with our self so different from our relationships with everyone else? In other words, what makes us special?
As inhabitants of our own minds and bodies, we have a unique relationship with our self. I’m the only person who’s with myself every waking hour, and who knows my every thought and action."

How can we choose to use that relationship for good: to treat ourselves with kindness, and compassion; to change self-defeating patterns?

New research indicates cognitive behavioural therapy can help treat Insomnia.

"In many cases, therapy is a better treatment option, since it treats the underlying anxieties that cause insomnia. A medication just puts a blanket over that anxiety and helps people get rest, says Dr. David Cunnington (senior author of study and director of the Melbourne Sleep Disorders Centre in Australia). But cognitive behavioral therapy addresses the core problems, challenging people's thinking around sleep. It can actually break the cycle of chronic insomnia."
A review of the medical evidence finds that therapy can break the cycle of chronic sleeplessness by addressing the anxieties that cause many people to stay awake.

Many of us agree that forgiving ourselves and learning from past mistakes is important for our health and well-being, the next question is how do we actually go about forgiving ourselves?

Friday’s landmark Supreme Court ruling legalized same-sex marriage across U.S.A marking a huge step towards accepting marriage equality :)
In the same vein, lets break some more stereotypes:
http://www.goodtherapy.org/blog/overwhelming-evidence-shows-same-sex-parenting-is-not-harmful-0630152
New study reinforces earlier findings that same-sex parenting is not harmful to children and may in fact be beneficial to children, despite stigma and bullying.

The power of a book :)

(Books are used in therapy as well. Bibliotherapy is an expressive therapy that uses an individual's relationship to the content of books and poetry and other written words as therapy.Therapists sometimes use relevant books as an adjunct to their therapy. Research has shown that bibliotherapy helps to cope with symptoms of mild anxiety and depression.
No wonder then that in ancient greece, libraries were called "healing places for the soul"!)
