Source: Fauxels/Pexels As human beings, we all long to belong. No matter our race, ethnicity , or religion, we all want to be accepted for who we are, and to feel connected to something larger than ourselves. Decades ago, psychologist Abraham Maslow recognized this longing as a fundamental drive in the human spirit. Today the COVID-19 pandemic – alongside an overdue and ongoing reckoning with systemic racism – has cast belonging in a new light, especially when it comes to our workplaces. Businesses and organizations have come to appreciate that employees are more than resources. They’re human beings with worries and struggles – people with a yearning for the support of their peers in navigating life’s challenges and triumphs. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that belonging is good for business to boot. According to a study by BetterUp , a sense of belonging can lead to 56% increase in job performance and a 75% decrease in sick days. People who feel that they belong … [Read more...] about 5 Tips to Nurture a Sense of Belonging in Business

More than 45 mass shootings occurred within less than a month , CNN’s Madeline Holcombe reported on April 18, 2021. The New York Times , NBC News , and other news media stations continue to focus on this urgent, unfolding national crisis. Mass shootings are a collective trauma, regardless of where they occur. A spate of them during a time when we are already psychologically vulnerable after a year of distress is even more devastating. The psychological impact of these random acts of violence simulates the trauma impact of domestic terrorism, though there is no known link between these acts of violence. In fact, the lack of connection between these events can heighten the trauma response for several reasons. This article will explore the psychological impact of these acts of mass violence and will highlight the need for us to address our national trauma crisis in more effective ways. As a psychologist, I have given several interviews in the context of recent mass … [Read more...] about The Psychological Impact of the Surge in Mass Shootings
By Marla Munro and Kathleen Bogart Globally, there are more than 300 million people who have one of the 7,000 known rare diseases (Nguengang Wakap et al., 2020). In the United States, any disease affecting fewer than 200,000 people per year is considered rare . People with rare diseases experience many of the same challenges who those with more common chronic illnesses deal with, but they also face additional barriers and stigma due to how rare their conditions are. Some of these unique challenges include having significantly delayed diagnosis (averaging seven to nine years), receiving multiple misdiagnoses, and lacking access to information about or treatments for their conditions (von der Lippe et al., 2017; Zhu et al., 2017). People with rare diseases often face social and psychological challenges, such as isolation because they do not know anyone with their disease (Anderson et al., 2019; Bryson et al., 2021) and a higher risk of anxiety and depression (Bogart & … [Read more...] about Why Is the Stigma of Rare Disease So Common?

Age is just a number, right? For some romantic couples, absolutely. They never think about their age as a factor in their compatibility. Of course, these couples tend to be close in age. Modest differences in age, especially when men are older, tend not to preoccupy couples as they develop their relationships. For other couples, however, age is much more than a number. These "age-gap" relationships, sometimes called "May-December" relationships, are comprised of one person who is markedly older than the other. When a significant age gap exists between partners, age becomes a salient issue, sometimes a deal-breaker in the early stages of relationship development. Age Isn't Like Other Characteristics You've heard the idea that "birds of a feather flock together"? This maxim is generally true when it comes to love. People fall in love with others who are similar to them on a whole host of dimensions.
