If there was an effective way to insulate yourself from the stressors of life, would you consider it? Activities such as meditation and yoga are oft-cited methods for achieving stress relief, and for good reason. But what if that isn’t your thing? Fret not. Fostering an improved mind-body connection can occur within any physical activity, and that connection is a necessary component of learning to effectively ground yourself during stressful times.

So, you have gotten to a point in your marriage where you are seriously considering divorce. This decision has potentially serious negative consequences for you, your spouse, and those you are close with in your life. It is a choice that must be thought through deliberately and carefully.

Women are masters at multitasking. We are caregivers, educators, administrators, housecleaners, accountants, chauffeurs, chefs, maintenance workers, designers, landscapers, and more—and that’s when we’re not working!

Women juggle so much it’s no wonder we often experience stress and strain. It’s not just a concern for young professionals or single moms.

Busyness weighs down women in all situations, at all stages of life, and the effects can be harmful.

Child trauma occurs more than you think.

Effective communication sounds like it should be instinctive. But all too often, when we try to communicate with others something goes astray. We say one thing, the other person hears something else, and misunderstandings, frustration, and conflicts ensue. This can cause problems in your home, school, and work relationships. For many of us, communicating more clearly and effectively requires learning some important skills. Whether you’re trying to improve communication with your spouse, kids, boss, or coworkers, learning these skills can deepen your connections to others, build greater trust and respect, and improve teamwork, problem solving, and your overall social and emotional health.

When you think about your life, it is quite possible that your mind is playing tricks on you that can distort your view. Cognitive distortions — where your mind puts a ‘spin’ on the events you see and attaches a not-so-objective interpretation to what you experience — happen all the time. They are especially common in people with depression and other mood disorders.

Many people get nervous or self-conscious on occasion, like when giving a speech or interviewing for a new job. But social anxiety, or social phobia, is more than just shyness or occasional nerves. With social anxiety disorder, your fear of embarrassing yourself is intense—so intense, in fact, that you may go to great lengths to avoid situations that can trigger it. But no matter how painfully shy you may be and no matter how bad the butterflies, you can learn to be comfortable in social situations and reclaim your life.

Cognitive milestones represent important steps forward in a child's development. Throughout human history, babies were often thought of as simple, passive beings. Prior to the 20th-century, children were often seen simply as miniature versions of adults. It wasn't until psychologists like Jean Piaget proposed that children actually think differently than adults do and that people began to view childhood and adolescence as a unique period of growth and development.

One of the important concepts in Integrative Psychotherapy is that of Relational Needs. Relational needs are the needs that grow out of human interaction, and being aware of these needs in ourselves and in others can help develop and nurture human relationships. Being aware of these needs can also help us gain insight into the feelings, behaviors and motivations in ourselves and others.

Despite all the happiness that newlyweds enjoy, it appears that marriage is not always for the long run with the number of case separations increasing every year (Karney, 2010).  “Most first marriages will end in divorce or permanent separation” (Bramlett & Mosher, 2002), and the rate of dissolution for remarriages is even higher (Cherlin, 1992).

The decision to marry is one of the greatest decisions that any human being is bound to make during their lifetime.  But does it always have to end in the same way?
