    There are many times in life when we may look at the path we've chosen - and wish to change course. We look for ways to transition from one decision to another.  When the choice has to do with the President of the United States - what are the choices? Is there anything important for us to think about?  Is there clinical information we should consider?

    MyNDTALK - Says Who? - Ora Nadrich

    Many of the obstacles people face are the result of their own negative thoughts holding them back. And often those thoughts don't even originate within them; they're the ideas or opinions of someone else---a critical parent or angry spouse, for instance---which they believe without questioning to see if they're even real or true. Since thoughts create beliefs---which then create behavior---negative thoughts are dangerous things to leave unchecked. You must question them, challenge them. With Says Who?, Ora Nadrich shows us how.

    MyNDTALK - Getting Un-Stuck in Your Life - Bennett Pologe

    You may have tried to change your life many times, in big or small ways. You may have struggled with your habits, feelings, perceptions, with your behavior, relationships, job, diet, anything. You may have taken workshops and training, read books and tried therapies. If all this hasn't worked, if you're still somehow lost or stuck in your life, the problem may be this one persistent mistake. It causes most of our problems. It derails our lives in countless ways, leaves us repeating pointless or self-destructive habits, poisons relationships of all kinds, prolongs the misery. If you don't catch it, whatever else you try may well fail again. Catch it, and everything can change....

    MyNDTALK - Strange Beauty - Eliza Factor

    MyNDTALK - Nurture the Wow - Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg

    Every day, parents are bombarded by demands. The pressures of work and life are relentless; our children’s needs are often impossible to meet; and we rarely, if ever, allow ourselves the time and attention necessary to satisfy our own inner longings. Parenthood is difficult, demanding, and draining. And yet, argues Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, if we can approach it from a different mindset, perhaps the work of parenting itself can offer the solace we seek.

    MyNDTALK - Another Kind of Madness - Stephen Hinshaw

    A deeply personal memoir calling for an end to the dark shaming of mental illness.

    Families are riddled with untold secrets. But Stephen Hinshaw never imagined that a profound secret was kept under lock and key for 18 years within his family--that his father's mysterious absences, for months at a time, resulted from serious mental illness and involuntary hospitalizations. From the moment his father revealed the truth, during Hinshaw's first spring break from college, he knew his life would change forever.

    Hinshaw calls this revelation his "psychological birth." After years of experiencing the ups and downs of his father's illness without knowing it existed, Hinshaw began to piece together the silent, often terrifying history of his father's life--in great contrast to his father's presence and love during periods of wellness. This exploration led to larger discoveries about the family saga, to Hinshaw's correctly diagnosing his father with bipolar disorder, and to his full-fledged career as a clinical and developmental psychologist and professor.

    MyNDTALK - Zentivity - Marianne Clyde

    Why is it then that when illness is related to emotional, mental, or relationship factors that cause similar outcomes, we are more likely to hide and deny it, hoping it just goes away? This doesn't make sense. If we simply addressed the issues up front and learned techniques to help ourselves and our employees overcome them, we would see direct results in enhanced job performance, a more positive outlook, and focused productivity. ... Marianne Clyde offers clear strategies that are easy to understand and implement so that you can see immediate results in your workplace: better relationships and performance, as well as increased productivity.
