Titus R. Ngateh’s new book Born With A Vision: A Gift of Love ($15.49, paperback 9781498485746; $7.99, eBook, 9781498485753) is the inspiring story of a young man’s struggle to beat the odds following the sudden death of his father, and his determination to leave the tragic past behind. Poverty compounded by the Liberian Civil War was a force he not only had to reckon with, but would he live to see his family also trapped in the fighting elsewhere in the country? In the midst of this horrible event, he held on to his faith in God, the Faith his late father had instilled in him as a young boy. Tragedies in the families, including the deaths of an older brother, an uncle, and two friends in the war, had taught him a hard lesson. Ngateh says, “This book is relevant in today’s culture in that while my story occurred on the other side of the globe, it is just as relatable as in the streets of Chicago or Atlanta. One can, for instance, see homelessness, crime, unemployment, single parents battling over the issues of survivability to remain relevant in the community they live. The condition of the orphanage that remains one of the fundamental headaches in the world, leaves humanity hopeless, some of which are caused by civil unrest, extreme poverty and other man-made disasters. Places like Iraq, Libya, the Sudan, the Middle East, Syria, Egypt, Mali, Somalia, and other troubled spots in the world, are just a few classic examples of the endless human situations in a world that appears, falling apart. It was the same with what happened in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and in countries that are currently undergoing various forms of chaos.” Titus R. Ngateh was born in Liberia, West Africa. He fled the Liberian civil war and resettled in the United States in 2003. His adopted parents followed later, in 2004. He attended high school in Guinea, West Africa. He was a student at the America, Episcopal University AMU, 2001-2002. He has attended colleges in Maryland, and New York respectively. He is now a graduate of Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology, at Argosy University, Atlanta Georgia. Xulon Press, a division of Salem Media Group, is the world’s largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 12,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Born With A Vision: A Gift of Love through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.

PTSD Awareness and Treatment Richard Shane, Ph.D. Founder Sleep Easily June is PTSD Awareness Month, culminating on June 27 with PTSD Awareness Day. Sponsored by The National Center for PTSD, they promote awareness of PTSD and effective treatments throughout the year. Says Dr. Shane: "Patients often try to initially calm PTSD in their thoughts and emotions. I've seen better results showing PTSD sufferers how to initially calm their body tension, which helps calm their mind and emotions." Dr. Shane is a sleep expert and psychotherapist with over 20 years' experience in a clinical sleep practice setting. This practice gave him expert awareness of PTSD, a common cause of insomnia. Author of "Sleep Easily Method Sleepguide," Dr. Shane can comment on sleep awareness, PTSD, stress and sleep-related articles.

Natural disasters do not provide ample lead time, so it is important to take steps to prepare now." To take the pulse of American's level of preparedness and confidence in the face of a natural disaster, Healthcare Ready worked with YouGov to conduct a poll of 1,184 Americans. Overall, the findings showed that the second year in a row, the potential of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, tornado, flood or wildfire affecting their community as the greatest single disaster individuals are concerned about. America's concern about natural disasters (34%) continues to exceed worry about terrorist attacks (15%), cyber-attacks (6%), or environmental disasters (6%) combined. Based in Washington, D.C., Louissaint is available to speak on the impact of the survey findings and the importance of building community resilience before, during and after natural disasters and emergency events.

Perhaps the child wants to play with it all the time -- after all, it is a fun new toy. Make sure to help your child understand times that it is useful. Perhaps, at dinner waiting on service it is okay -- but show the child how there is a need to put it away to order and talk to people."

Some of the report's findings: 1) There's been a 37% rise in the poverty rate among Millennial and Generation X women; 2) one in four workers in high-paying STEM fields were women in Generation X, but only one in five were Millennial women; 3) the suicide rate for young women in the Millennial generation has increased to 6.3 per 100,000, compared to 4.4 per 100,000 in Generation X. Says Osta: "Social media gives young girls unrealistic images of themselves, which are the root of a whole lot of problems. Even with this new wave of feminism, so many women are still feeling unempowered. In certain industries, it amazes me how women are still the minority and aren't being treated the same." Osta is a sought-after Millennial social commentator booked to share her "keep it real" view on all things politics or pop culture. Recognized for her swift and fun interviewing style, this radio and talk-show host has been landing her own interviews with the world's notable superstars, athletes, and newsmakers on and off the red carpet since she was 11.

Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics | Year: 2012
This review examines the long-standing finding that ADHD is a common sequela of pediatric traumatic brain injury (PTBI) in light of the current conceptualization of ADHD as a dimensional, neuropsychologically heterogeneous disorder. The review contends that this conceptualization established the basis for concluding that frequently occurring symptoms caused by PTBI, such as slow processing speed, emotional dysregulation and disinhibition, are indicative of ADHD. Consequently, it concludes that ADHD following PTBI is even more common than the 30% rate the current literature suggests. It provides recommendations for the assessment and treatment of ADHD associated with PTBI. © 2012 Expert Reviews Ltd.

Heidegger's 1927 call to provide "a special hermeneutic of empathy" is linked with his later commitment at the Zollikon Seminars to engage explicitly with issues in psychodynamic therapy with psychiatrists. The task of providing a special hermeneutic of empathy is one that Heidegger assigns in Being and Time, but on which he does not deliver. Inspired by the assignment, this article applies the distinctions of Heidegger's Daseinanalysis to human interrelations. This article generates a Heideggerian account of empathy as a multi-dimensional process that delimits and illuminates the field of possibilities of authentic human relationships. The multiple dimensions of empathy include affectedness (Befindlichkeit), understanding of possibility, interpretation, and speech, the latter including listening. The result is a reconstruction of a Heideggerian account of empathic human relations in the sense that it goes beyond what Heidegger explicitly says to what the Heideggerian method of inquiry can contribute to understanding and implementing the process of empathy. In particular, a two-by-two matrix is built and engaged in detail, cross referencing the four possibilities of authentic and inauthentic relationships with the individual and the other. A specifically Heideggerian analysis of the multi-dimensional process of empathy is the result. The clinical relevance of Heidegger's work is made explicit as empathy is positioned as the foundation of clinical practice as exemplified in psychodynamic psychotherapy. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

Narrative therapies, especially narrative exposure therapy, are used to treat the effects of trauma in refugees and to prevent psychiatric illness. These methods involve helping the person to tell the story of what happened to them until it no longer elicits anxiety. We reviewed all quantitative studies related to narrative exposure methods for treating trauma or posttraumatic stress disorder in refugees. We focused on studies with sufficient information to calculate effect sizes and statistical power. We found 7 quantitative studies for which effect size and power could be calculated. The total average effect size for all interventions was 0.63 (medium). The average effect size for studies in which interventions were administered by physicians, adequately trained graduate students, or both was 0.53. The effect size for studies in which the counselors were themselves refugees was 1.02. The 95% confidence intervals for the effect sizes of narrative exposure therapy did not reach below 0. Studies demonstrating the effectiveness of narrative methods have adequate effect sizes and statistical power. Empowering lay counselors to treat their fellow refugees in future studies is warranted.

Model and reality-TV star Kendall Jenner recently revealed that she's afraid to go to sleep because of a condition called sleep paralysis. "I wake up in the middle of the night, and I can't move," Jenner said on the Nov. 6 episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" on E!. "I looked it up online, and it's a weird thing called sleep paralysis," she said. The experience is "terrifying," Jenner told her mother, Kris Jenner, on the show ."It's so scary when it happens — you literally feel like you're never going to get out of it," she said. [The Demon on Your Chest and Other Terrifying Tales of Sleep Paralysis] Experts say that sleep paralysis is indeed frightening, and it occurs when a person experiences two states — dreaming and muscle paralysis — that normally occur during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of sleep. But in people who experience sleep paralysis, the dreaming and paralysis occur while they are awake. Normally, dreams take place when a person is in REM sleep. While a person is dreaming, the brain paralyzes the muscles of the body so that a person cannot act out the dreams physically. However, during sleep paralysis, these two things occur while a person is conscious, Brian Sharpless, an associate professor of clinical psychology at Argosy University in Washington, D.C., told Live Science in an interview in October. This means that the dreams are technically hallucinations, and they're just as vivid as anything you'd see when you're awake, said Sharpless, who is also the author of "Sleep Paralysis: Historical, Psychological and Medical Perspectives" (Oxford University Press, 2015). Episodes of sleep paralysis are usually brief, lasting just a few seconds or minutes, according to the Mayo Clinic. Sleep paralysis is common in people with narcolepsy, the Mayo Clinic says. But people who do not have narcolepsy also may experience the phenomenon, especially in young adulthood, according to the Mayo Clinic. About 8 percent of Americans have experienced at least one episode of sleep paralysis, a 2011 study from Pennsylvania State University found. People with conditions such as anxiety or depression may be more likely to experience sleep paralysis, according to the study. Doctors do not have a specific treatment for sleep paralysis, Dr. Shelby Harris, director of behavioral sleep medicine at the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center at the Montefiore Health System in New York City, told Live Science in 2015. If a person experiences episodes of sleep paralysis only infrequently, then improving his or her "sleep hygiene" may help, Harris said. Good "sleep hygiene" includes getting enough sleep on a regular basis; avoiding alcohol, nicotine, drugs and caffeine before bedtime; and keeping electronics out of the bedroom, she said. However, people who have more frequent episodes of sleep paralysis may have an underlying medical condition that a sleep specialist could diagnose, Harris said. During an episode of sleep paralysis, all a person can do is stay calm and realize that it will pass soon, Harris said. She noted, however, that "this really only works if you've had an episode or two before, and know what to expect. These attacks can be quite scary to experience, especially if you've never had one before."
