Interferences of Interest in the Talking Child
For some time now, we have been immersed in feelings. Most recently, we have explored the crucial feeling of interest (curiosity) and what enhances and inhibits it. Last month, we examined the ways in which curiosity can be constricted in infancy, i.e. the preverbal child. This month, we discuss how curiosity can be restricted as the child begins to use words.read more (Source: Psychology Today Parenting Center)

South African 'Mentor Mothers' lower HIV infection rates among pregnant women
The incidence of HIV infection in South Africa tops that of any nation in the world, with some 6 million of the country’s nearly 50 million residents infected. Sadly, young women — and particularly young pregnant women — suffer some of the highest rates of HIV infection. More than one-fourth of pregnant South African women are infected with the virus; in some communities, the infection rates are even higher. But those infection rates might be reduced — and the overall health of children improved — through community-based peer counseling programs, according to a new study conducted by UCLA’s Mary Jane Rotheram-B...

OCD and Values
When I talk or write about my son’s journey through severe obsessive-compulsive disorder, the topic of values often arises. Values are the things that are very important and meaningful to us. Examples include the people whom we love, our favorite activities, important experiences, and guiding principles. Of course, each of us has a unique set of values, and I believe it is crucial to our well-being that we all pay attention to our personal values. I’ve always thought that one of the reasons my son Dan never dealt with recovery avoidance is because his values were crystal clear to him, and he was determined not to l...

Do dopamine drugs lead to compulsive shopping?
Conclusion This study analysed serious adverse drug events reported to the US FDA over a 10-year period, and found that 710 events (just under half of all impulse control disorders reported during this period) were attributed to dopamine receptor agonists. Most of these disorders involved gambling, followed by hypersexuality and compulsive shopping. This group of six drugs are used in Parkinson’s disease (and a small number of other conditions) where there is a lack of the chemical dopamine. The drugs act directly on dopamine receptors, effectively taking the place of dopamine and stimulating the receptor in the same wa...

A good therapist is hard to find but UW’s collaborative care hopes to help
If you've ever had to make both a doctor's appointment and a psychiatrist's appointment, you may have noticed a big difference between the two. While you might have to wait a few days for the doctor, it might take weeks to see a psychiatrist, and when you get to her office you might discover she's not even covered by your insurance.
