Book Review: Meaning Systems & Mental Health Culture
In his new book, Meaning Systems and Mental Health Culture: Critical Perspectives on Contemporary Counseling and Psychotherapy, James T. Hansen argues that although meaning systems are central to the human experience, they have been largely ignored in present-day mental health culture. Drawing on numerous historical and philosophical examples, Hansen outlines the ways in which meaning systems shape the way we come to understand ourselves, others, and the world around us. He makes the convincing case that because they are the omnipresent shaping forces of life, meaning systems should be a primary consideration when attempti...

Becoming a master in med school takes on new meaning
Tackling a master’s degree during medical school—usually in public health or business—has become increasingly popular among students as they prepare for the rigors of the profession. Many schools now are focused on developing a mastery of learning that is essential for physicians’ entire careers—but it doesn’t involve an additional degree. The AMA’s Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium—working to modernize and reshape the way physicians are trained—brings schools together to share ideas and experiences with new programs designed to improve competency, leadership and patient care through i...

The results of this meta-analysis are published in Springer's journal Psychiatric Quarterly. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

Caring for transgender patients
When transgender individuals seek medical care, confusion on the part of medical professionals may be the first reaction a trans patient receives. It’s important for medical professionals to understand that one’s gender identity as man, woman or trans is different from one’s sexual identity as gay, bisexual, lesbian or heterosexual. Gender identity and sexual identity are two separate domains, say experts who are trying to better prepare health care providers to treat trans patients. “Discrimination in health care settings can be very common for trans individuals, and some even report outright abuse,” said Cathy ...

Are Anxiety Drugs Making Us Less Eager To Lend A Helping Hand?
Antianxiety medications can be enormously helpful to people bedeviled by severe anxiety -- no doubt about that. But by tamping down anxious feelings, could it be that these so-called "anxiolytic" drugs are blunting our empathy and rendering us less willing to lend a helping hand to those in need? That's the word from the scientists responsible for a provocative new study showing that lab rats given a drug called midazolam (MDZ) were less willing than untreated control rats to help release a trapped cage mate. "With the MDZ on board, they were unable to feel/catch/'contage' the trapped rat's distress and thus were not motiv...

Why Are We Afraid Of Being The Victim Of A Mass Shooting?
When faced with an armed attacker or a wild animal, fear can be a good thing. Fear prompts an alert to immediate danger and primes the body to respond in a way that provides protection from that danger. But as creative creatures, humans also have the ability to anticipate future threats. These feelings may be triggered by the memory of a traumatic event or something in the environment, like a dark alley or the way someone is dressed. Sometimes, though, alertness can grow out of control, morphing into anxiety or fear that outpaces the actual risk of danger. In the past, people may have feared tornadoes whenever the sky...
