Fear, Post-Traumatic Stress and Growth

✿   Fear is a part of life whether it is fear of war and terrorism, or the general fears, like those of intimacy, abuse, inadequacy, a physical disease, surviving a natural disaster, or living with chronic pain.

✿   Research explains that most people who are exposed to a terrifying event do not have lasting problems. However, many people may have mild anxiety reactions, and 20% or more may develop serious emotional distress.

✿   People should consider receiving professional help if the emotional distress does not diminish over time, or if stress levels interfere with the ability to perform. http://goo.gl/UzO4X

✿   Post-traumatic growth http://goo.gl/NSmmlL & http://goo.gl/VK0DZx

Hi Folks

The full article is on the website http://healthpsychology.org/ but much more in the book.

I continue to work on doing these 5 CEU's audio files for continuing education credits (psychologists, nurses, social workers & the public) But plan on soon doing some free educational audio uploads and adding onto the website and maybe learn how to do podcasts.

Hope all is well (questions, skype session, just call me 760 439-9331)

"I love watching the Serengeti, the way lions live. The only way the king lion loses his crown is by somebody physically defeating him."
Ray Lewis

I visited Kruger National Park in Africa a couple of years ago. This was just 1 out 4 lions stalking a herd of 25-30 Cape Buffalo. BTW these Buffalo's do kill lions, especially when in herds.

The image doesn't even start to give the experience justice. (One day I will learn how to upload the video)

This excerpt is also on the website and the longer version is in the book. The concept is very important to learn in life. Especially with all the bullying happening in social media. Some people, certain professions may have a high intellectual IQ but very low emotional IQ (poor social skills).

Fitness A Historical Journey In Time
by +Dr. Cheryl Ann MacDonald, Psy'D. 

➤   One of man’s greatest achievements since the beginning of existence is the ongoing quest for good health.  

➤   Throughout primitive times, man’s hunt for physical strength has been guided by a passion for surviving. The concept of fitness remains paramount to health and well-being though for most it is no longer driven by the need to outrun predators or prevent hunger.

How long does it take to become a Licensed Clinical Psychologist?

✿    This is one of the questions I get asked frequently from students, patients and friends. And of course the answer is somewhat nuanced.

1.  If someone wants to practice independently and open up their own practice, company, etc.

Four years undergrad
Five years Masters & Doctorate Degree (2000 hrs in internships)
Post- Doctorate hours 2000 to qualify for 2 board Exams
1-2 years Exam Process

2.  If someone wants to go into Academics/Research the Post-Doctorate hours and Exam Process is not necessary (but will increase your chances of getting hired)

So best scenario 10-12 years

Exploring Multiple Sclerosis

✽   Multiple Sclerosis is a fluctuating, at times disabling illness of the central nervous system that disturbs the stream of information between the body and the brain. Although very difficult to determine, this disease affects approximately 2.3 million people, globally.

Fearmongering  the action of deliberately arousing public fear or alarm about a particular issue.

Note this tactic is used by activists and extremists and is NOT just utilized by the "food movement".  What are some other examples???

Image share from google plus, but, lost the name. OK to claim & I will give credit.

The Emotional Effects of Terror
by +Dr. Cheryl Ann MacDonald, Psy'D. 

There is no right or wrong way to respond to terrifying events, and how one reacts varies from person to person. Understandably some respond with feeling helpless and not wanting to believe.

Over time, these feelings may escalate to extreme anxiety, fear and despair. Some may relive the event in the form of a flashback, have difficulty concentrating, experience extreme fear, and notice an increase in health problems.  For more information http://goo.gl/UzO4X
