And, like most people, I find simple and organized lists of steps or rules leading to the good life quite attractive. Drawing lines, designating categories, and summarizing things to simplify our thinking about the world are good things. But, lines and categories don’t make our understanding of the world less complex if our simplifications are incorrect—and in such cases, they can make the world unnecessarily more complex than it was in the first place. That said, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed these days with the mass-marketed, success prescription-lists that every contemporary, intellectual guru appears to be peddling. Everyone, from Deepak Chopra to Tom Cruise, appears to have an opinion on the best routes to happiness, success, and the good life. Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos wasn’t enough—now we have even more from his Beyond … [Read more...] about How Many Steps to the Good Life? The World May Never Know
The pandemic has not been kind to many peoples’ waist circumference, or the number of chins they are carrying. Even those who have received the vaccine remain cautious; who knows whether the new variants will prove a danger even to the vaccinated and, anyway, life certainly has not returned to its pre-Covid19 state. Thus, the vulnerability of this group’s response to stress for whom food and/or alcohol has been the remedy for pandemic upset; that urge to overindulge is still very much present. And when chronic anxiety and depression is exacerbated by the current health-related stress, weight gain and substance abuse may follow. Who is most likely to succumb to eating, drinking or using recreational drugs as the most effective route to comfort? According to a recent publication in Clinical Obesity, one group likely to do so is the obese, and in particular, the obese who may also suffer from mood disorders. In a study on the effects of the pandemic on mood, weight, and … [Read more...] about We Need a New Approach to Reverse Pandemic Weight Gain

As an Asperger/Autism Specialist and couples counselor, I work with individuals with neurological differences such as Autism Spectrum Difference (ASD) and Asperger Syndrome partnered with a non-spectrum partner (NS). After seeing recurring challenges that these neurodiverse couples face, I developed the following roadmap and strategies that they’ve found useful: 1. Pursuing a Diagnosis: shame , pain and confusion felt by one or both partners. A diagnosis can be obtained from an Asperger/Autism Specialist skilled in identifying adult ASD. The specialist must also have a thorough understanding of the neurodiverse relationship dynamic and it is important that the diagnosis includes an interview with NS partner. 2. … [Read more...] about Married to A Partner On the Autism Spectrum?
Thalia theater. Source: Kroger, Yozef on PICRYL/Public Domain About 10 years ago, my patient Gene retired as a professor of Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism at a local university. Most people don’t know what dramaturgy is, or what the dramaturge (its practitioner) actually does, this was partly why he left. “I was the intellectual in the Theater Department,” he told me, “but that made me obsolete.” Gene was definitely old-school: bow-tied, tweedy, always clutching a script whose author dreamed of summer stock at Williamstown, the Guthrie, or the Hartford Stage. The dramaturge provides these places—and many others—with learned critiques of dramatic literature. What are the play’s themes, its context, its characters’ psychological dilemmas? Is it well-structured? How is the play situated historically? Is it important? He also has to understand the business of theater. Could a play be produced within budget? Would it appeal to a likely audience? Who’d be good in the leading … [Read more...] about Retirement Isn’t Always a Walk in the Park
