When a person has trouble speaking in a fluid, or flowing way, for example, he/she may say the whole word or parts of the word more than once, or pause awkwardly between words - it is termed as stuttering.

elizabeth taylor by warhol Source: Laura Deutsch I sanitized a piece about my trip to the Museum of Modern Art in Queens with my mother and her friends. A piece that made all my friends and fellow writers laugh. I thought I’d take a test run by letting Mom read an essay about her friends, not focusing on her. In the piece, Mom’s friend Helen, 86, was driving us to the Matisse/Picasso exhibit. Shirley, 84, rode shotgun. Mom and I were crammed into the Mazda's back seat with Flo, a baby at 75. I, younger still, perched on the middle hump. Helen, birdlike, thin and small, with short, feathery, silver hair, headed down the hill from Mom’s house to pick up the Long Island Expressway. Shirley's broad shoulders looked even wider from behind. I could see the bald spot on her crown, surrounded by a frizz of black hair. When she turned to smile at me, I saw her make-up was off the mark, like Warhol's off-register color print of Elizabeth Taylor at SFMOMA. Mom: Oh, so … [Read more...] about Are You Mean?
I first met Robert through a computer screen. He had completed an intake interview with another clinician at my clinic some months ago and was on the waitlist for individual therapy. Normally mental health assessments are a rather dry affair; a list of symptoms, their duration, and their impact upon present functioning with just a slight indication of what it feels like to actually sit with the client. Robert’s was quite different. A subtle note of wry incredulity was evident in the clinician’s assessment. Robert was the only son of an Ethiopian prince. He had been conceived via in vitro fertilization, remarkable since he was in his late fifties, and had been destined for a lifetime of regal comfort until he was stolen from the hospital by an African American family. They treated him like a political prisoner, locking him up in his room, feeding him garbage, and beating him regularly. He was seeking treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder, suffering from … [Read more...] about The African Prince in Exile
Source: ra2studio/Shutterstock Two recent studies on subliminal messages have found that subconscious visual cues can improve athletic performance and reduce negative age stereotypes of physical ability. The latest research shows that subliminal messages have the power to fortify your inner strength and boost self-confidence on and off the court. Subliminal visual cues are words, pictures or symbols that are unidentifiable to your conscious awareness. Subliminal stimuli happens so quickly that it is literally "below the threshold" of your conscious mind. Visual stimuli that is flashed for just a few milliseconds can be absorbed at a subconscious level before your conscious mind has time to interpret the incoming visual stimuli. The effect of subliminal messages can be positive or negative depending on the content of the messages being flashed before your eyes. A Brief History of … [Read more...] about Subliminal Messages Can Fortify Inner Strength
Source: pxhere Vancouver, Canada, discourages the use of plastic bags by charging shoppers five cents per bag, but a local store owner decided to take things one step further. He attempted to shame customers who bought plastic bags by emblazoning them with embarrassing logos, like “Into the Weird Adult Emporium” and “Wart Ointment Wholesale.” Who would want to walk around with a bag implying you just came from a sex shop or have some weird skin thing going on? Turns out, lots of people. Sales of plastic bags increased as people wanted to acquire the novelty bags. One might hope these bags will be less likely to end up in rivers and landfills, but I have my doubts: How long is that wart joke going to stay funny? Now the store plans to print the snide logos on canvas bags…which is even worse for the environment. In the end, this store may increase its sales but at the expense of our planet. This is one example of a well-intentioned and … [Read more...] about The Unexpected Effects of Nudging
