Anxious or Just Jewish?
March 11th, 2015
Anxious? Or Just Jewish?   Shimmy Feintuch, LMSW   Being Jewish would make even a Buddhist monk anxious.  There are so many laws and rituals that are part of our daily lives.  Did you eat enough matzah?  Is it time for davening yet?  Or worse, is it too late?  Did you say the words just right, or was it slightly off?  Better say it again, then. Young children learn particular laws, such as those regarding h …

Getting the Help You Need: Who Can Provide Treatment?   Hindie M.

Understanding Assessments   Dr. Judith Guedalia, PhD   As a parent, teacher or mental health professional, we have surely, at one point or another, been bombarded with referrals to do testing or assessments.  “Testing” may refer to every area in our anatomy and psyche.  Some are physically intrusive, and others emotionally so.  Most are expensive in time and money.  What is the purpose for, and what exact …

Getting Help in Making Change
Author: Lisa Twerski, LCSW
February 2nd, 2015
Getting Help in Making Change  By: Lisa Twerski, LCSW   Deciding that something in your life needs to change, is a great start but is actually fraught with so many challenges at different stages, that people often get overwhelmed and say ‘forget it’ to the whole notion. That is such a shame, because all too often, the initial instinct was right, and something really should change. So, I’d like to break down the process …
