Empathy for Self Help With Depression

Once upon a time, a college freshman seeking to make an appointment with me for a counseling session revealed that in the days past he had experienced suicidal ideation, and now that he was feeling much better he had decided to give me a call. A quick glance at my calendar revealed that I had an eight o’clock opening the following day. I shared with him this news, and there was a pause on the other end of the line.

Couples Coping with the Recession (Making your relationship work in an ailing economy)

Let’s face it, monetary matters play an influential role in our romantic relationships, whether you find yourself married or in another serious relationship. While love is priceless, the role finances play in our relationships is a fundamental of our cultural-specific and universal beliefs and values. Some of these roles include but are not limited to wedding expenses, rent or montage, utility bills, car loans, and the list goes on. Yet despite the important part money plays in our relationships, it still remains a ridiculous reason for a couple to split. Unfortunately this phenomenon takes place too often. It is...
