    Understanding the Relationship Between Attachment Style, Relationship Satisfaction, Illness Behaviours, and Psychological Distress in Couples

Changing your mind-set to a Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) invites you to look first at the benefits, and then look at whether and how you can manage the costs. BCAs are equally applicable for addressing personal, family and social projects.

    Abstract In the fall of 2016 we find ourselves in the midst of an unprecedented planet-wide ecological crisis. Not only are we at war with each other, as we are reminded daily on the news, but humanity is in many respects at war with the earth that sustains life. While this war doesn’t make news headlines often, all of us are traumatized by this ecological violence. Some of us, especially children, feel its effects on our psyches and our bodies more acutely. Along with personal stories from the front lines of climate activism, this article will discuss the still […]
