Autism: A Family Affair

April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.  Despite such emphasis on early identification, a lot of parents and pediatricians remain ill--informed about the early signs as well as treatment options.  Treatment for Autism should include the entire family, as the family requires thorough understanding of the disorder and must be actively engaged in the administration of social and behavioral treatment interventions. Interventions focused only on the Autistic child are a disservice to the family and will not yield optimal results.

How To Avoid Language That Tears You Down

As a therapist one of the first things I say to people in a first session is that they can talk however they want with me including swearing (just not at me, please).

Your Future Relationship Happens Now

Imagine that you are a hologram made of the fragments of your past, fantasies about future and collective perceptions you learned from people in your life. When a wrong word is said or something else reminds you about your past disappointments or betrayal, you lose yourself in this memory and unconsciously leave the present moment.

When It Comes To Love, Words Matter

Forget chemistry, similar values, having the same favorite movies or any of the usual signs we look for to see if a date may blossom into something long-term. What if the key to compatibility is in our words, or, more specifically, the words between our words?

How To Give A Great Wedding Speech

Wedding season for best friends isn't all bachelor parties, rehearsal dinners and hookups with the falsely libidinous. It's about responsibility. It's keeping drunk uncles from falling down stairs, it's holding onto rings in an outfit sometimes without pockets, it's administering tepid water to cold feet, it's telling Bridezilla that the citizens of Tokyo are sick of having their view wrecked, it's not complaining about an outfit that's so hideous it must be a personal attack, and it's giving a great wedding speech

Aw! He shouldn’t have! Scratch that. He certainly should have! After all, Michelle did leave her $273,618 a-year bread-winning job as the Vice President at the University of Chicago Hospitals to stand by her husband. Like a rock, indeed!
