What About the Children? Dr. Roz, Child and Family Therapist, Considers Their LandscapeToday

What About the Children? Dr. Roz, Child and Family Therapist, Considers Their LandscapeToday

The challenge for all of us today is to be a lighthouse in the next generation’s lives. In this season of intense uncertainty and unrest, be on the lookout for lost souls. Be alert to those who may be in need and have nowhere to go or no way to get there. Be sensitive to children who find themselves left out, leftover, or left behind. Be a lighthouse to a child. Show children protection and guidance. You don’t have to say much; just let the child know you are there should the need arise. Roselyn V. Baker-Black, affectionately known as…

In sickness and in health with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

In sickness and in health with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says, “Women, who are key in maintaining healthy families, access the health system more than men, both for themselves and on behalf of their children. Many become pregnant and give birth, a significant health event, then typically become their child’s primary caregiver, a role that greatly influences household health overall. Elder and long-term care issues affect women more often because they live longer; have higher rates of disability and chronic health problems; and lower incomes than men on average, which puts them at the greater need for state and community resources, such as Medicaid.…

Six words that can save marriages.

Six words that can save marriages.

“Because Battling over a household chore? Your request is more liable to be fulfilled if one magic word is used: because. Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer found that people are more willing to comply with an appeal if you simply provide a reason—any reason. But  We’ve all been told not to use the word “but” for an apology (as in, “I’m sorry, but…”), which comes off as an excuse and feels like a less-than-sincere mea culpa. In a series of experiments, however, psychologists Sandra Murray and John Holmes discovered the word can have a magically protective effect in relationships. They had couples…

Would you believe Maria Shriver’s mirror has cracks?

Would you believe Maria Shriver's mirror has cracks?

Maria Shriver’s life is often summarized in fairy tale terms. A child of the Kennedy clan in the Camelot aura of the early 1960s. Daughter of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who founded the Special Olympics, and Sargent Shriver, who founded the Peace Corps. An esteemed broadcast journalist. First lady of California. She opened up with Krista Tippett during a conversation on her show, On Being, about having a personal history that is also public history — and the ordinariness that is her life and any life, however glamorous on the outside. We experience the toughness for which the women in Maria…

 A Gift for Graduates

 A Gift for Graduates

“This morning I was reading a book at my favorite beach-side coffee shop when an 18-year-old kid sat down next to me and said, “That’s a great read, ain’t it?”  So, we started chatting. He told me he was getting ready to graduate from high school in a couple of weeks and then immediately starting his college career in the fall.  “But I have no clue what I want to do with my life,” he said.  “Right now, I’m just going with the flow.” And then, with eager, honest eyes, he began asking me one question after the next: “What do you…

5 Hard Things You Need to Start Doing for Yourself on Hard Days

5 Hard Things You Need to Start Doing for Yourself on Hard Days

“On particularly hard days when I feel that I can’t endure, I remind myself that my track record for getting through hard days is 100% so far. And, I remind myself that hard days are necessary, to live through and to learn from.  The hardest days make us who we are, inside and out. So many of us are afraid of ourselves, of our own truth, and our feelings most of all.  We talk about how great the concepts of life and love and passion are, but then we subconsciously hide from them every day.  We hide from our truest…

Do more than just exist. We all exist. The question is: Are you living?

Do more than just exist. We all exist. The question is: Are you living?

A while ago, I realized the course my life had taken up had been the product of other people’s ideas, opinions, and decisions. I knew all too well that life was short, yet every day I was just going through the motions and doing what I was “supposed” to do, instead of what was right for ME. I was in line. I was comfortable. And I was utterly distracted from what matters most in life. But, fast forward to today, and as I awoke this morning I marveled at my life. Where once I awoke with inner resistance at the…

When the most wonderful time of the year isn't ...

“Lights, lists, carols, crowds, family, the perfect gift, friends. This is often the stuff of a magical holiday. But for those living with loss, they can signal a minefield of emotions, triggers, and questions.  Facing the holidays after a loss can be daunting for a child, teen, or family. Young people living with loss, no matter where they are developmental, can find the holidays as especially conflicted due to the fact that they in large part do get swept up into the energies of the season.  Many often report feeling guilt or shame about wanting to participate fully in the joy and hope of the…
