Steven is able to be a part of the growth and sustenance of many of the poorest women in the world.

    Dr. Hirsh-Pasek offers solutions that parents can implement right now. Backed by the latest scientific evidence and illustrated with examples of what's being done right in schools today, this book introduces the "6Cs" collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence along with ways parents can nurture their children s development in each area.

Some boys have recently been through trauma or loss, such as divorce or death of a loved one. Their parents care deeply about their well being, and are scared and confused by changes in mood, behavior and motivation.

    As a program that offers a high level of engagement with both our residents and their families, we only treat a small number of boys at a time. ... Boys must be 12 to 17 years old at the time of admission, with substance abuse or process addiction (such as internet and gaming addiction) as a primary issue.

    Parents typically call us out of concern for known substance abuse

    and recent changes in their son, such as: Extreme personality changes Intense mood swings Difficulties in personal relationships Academic difficulties Erratic or antisocial behavior This is NOT an inclusive list * *

    MyNDTALK – Finally Focused  - Dr. James Greenblatt

    Dr. James Greenblatt provides proven natural and medical methods to easily treat problems such as nutritional deficiencies or excesses, dysboiosis (a microbial imbalance inside the body), sleeping difficulties, and food allergies, all of which surprisingly can cause or worsen the symptoms of ADHD. Using Dr. Greenblatt's Plus-Minus Healing Plan, parents will first understand the reasons behind their child's symptoms, and then be able to eliminate them by addressing the child's unique pattern of biological weakness. Adults with ADHD can do the same for themselves. Dr. Greenblatt believes if conventional medication is still necessary, his integrative approach will minimize or even eliminate troublesome side effects.

    MYNDTALK - The OCD Circus - Kirsten Pagacz

    It's like the meanest, wildest monkey running around my head, constantly looking for ways to bite me." That was how Kirsten Pagacz described her OCD to her therapist on their first session when she was well into her 30s--she'd been following orders from this mean taskmaster for 20 years, without understanding why. Initially the tapping and counting and cleaning and ordering brought her comfort and structure, two things lacking in her family life. But it never lasted; the loathsome self-talk only intensified, and the rituals she had to perform got more bizarre. By high school she was anorexic and a substance abuser—common "shadow syndromes" of OCD. By adulthood, she could barely hide her problems and held on to jobs and friends through sheer grit. Help finally came in the form of a miraculously well-timed public service announcement on NPR about OCD--at last her illness had an identity. Leaving the OCD Circus reveals the story of Pagacz's traumatic childhood and the escalation of her disorder--demonstrating how OCD works to misshape a life from a very young age--and explains the various tools she used for healing including meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, yoga, exposure therapy, and medication.
