Happy New Year

It is time to reflect on the past year and your life mission or purpose. Asking yourself some basic questions is a good place to start.

1) Are you finding meaning in your life?
2) Are you experiencing pleasure?
3) Are you "engaged"?

Happiness is a by product of having meaning, pleasure and being engaged. If you find you are lacking in any of these 3 areas, consider what will help you get there. A balanced life of social, spiritual, physical and emotional components will give you an opportunity to achieve happiness.

Have a magical and productive new year!!!!

Learning to Deal with Verbal Abuse

Patricia Evans, author of "The Verbally Abusive Relationship" explains abuse victims don't realize that the problem isn't theirs.: it's in the abuser's need to dominate and control.

Hallmarks of verbal abuse:

  • It's hostile.
  • It's unpredictible.
  • It's manipulative and controlling.
  • It happens when no one else is around.
  • The victim feels confused and surprised.
  • The words are hurtful.

What can you do? Respond with;
Stop it! or Don't talk to me like that.
Don't defend or explain, the abuser is not interested in understanding you, just control you.

  • Listen to your feelings and believe them.
  • Remove yourself if you assess the situation as dangerous.
  • Verbal abuse is a doorway to physical abuse, so take steps to be safe.
  • Get support through a therapist and/or support group.
  • Seek information.

When you calmly stand up for yourself and refuse to be goaded into defending or explaining, the abuser typically gives up.        We can help!!!!

Wellness Program in Russia

As many of you may remember, last July I was in Russia for my third trip developing a wellness program, training psychologists and medical doctors in western methods of psychological assessment, treatment, stress management, smoking cessation and intake procedures. The flyer you are looking at is this blog is the new newsletter that was a part of our promotional program.

It is so exciting to see these programs coming to fruition. In fact, just yesterday, we were notified that the program will be extended for two more years. It is a great experience and opportunity for me to work in another culture and use my Russian language skill.

How are you doing on your own wellness program? Maybe it is time to start some personal wellness projects for yourself.

Online counseling, or “Teletherapy,” is when a professional counselor or psychotherapist talks with a client over the Internet to give emotional support, mental health assessment, goal setting and a treatment plan.
