Navigating Life's Twists and Turns

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D. Remember playing car-racing games at the arcade, trying to stay on the virtual road while going as fast as you can? In those videos, sharp curves keep switching and obstacles suddenly appear, causing you to crash and burn if your reactions aren’t fast enough. It may be fun to play a game, but what about when life itself mirrors this wild ride? Whether you're actually on a dangerous road or navigating the twists and turns of life, you don't…See More

GEMS for Working Moms

 Is your life an endless cycle, revolving around work and taking care of the kids? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women say they don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and to choose the activities they enjoy. We all know that saying ‘yes’ to more responsibility can make us feel safer with the boss and help us avoid conflict in the family. But too often ‘yes’ is our default mode with just about everything.In a world of…See More

Is Time Getting Away from You?

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D. As you settle into the new year, do you sometimes feel like time is getting away from you? I make list after list of what I want to accomplish each day – and often get a large chunk completed - but never seem to get everything done. Now that I make my lists on my PDA, it's easier to just change the date and roll the reminders over to the next day. Yet the sense of satisfaction that I feel when I do finish a project is a great motivator to…See More

Women Olympians Medal as Role Models

Ever since Title IX guaranteed equal funding for girls' sports programs 40 years ago, we've seen the results in school, the workplace and women's self-confidence. Studies have shown that girls who play sports in high school are more likely to do better in science classes, complete college, avoid substance abuse and join the workforce. And the more time they spend participating in team sports, the higher their self-esteem. Naturally, there's also an effect on the playing fields. For the first…See More

Three Cheers for the Sandwich Generation

  July is Sandwich Generation Month, a chance to pay tribute to adult children who are juggling the demands of raising kids while taking care of aging parents. The number of Americans 65 and older is projected to increase from 40 million in 2010 to over 88 million by 2050, doubling the ranks of those experiencing this stressful combination of responsibilities. We expect to take care of our growing children. After all, isn't that part of the parenting job description? Even after the last kid…See More

2012 College Graduates Are Moving Back Home

Steps to Deal with Bullying

 By Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D. Remember what it was like to be in school, afraid of the big bully in the neighborhood? The documentary Bully reignited the national dialogue about this challenge for kids, following several students and their families over the course of one school year. Bullying is pervasive in our society today – research indicates that one in three children have been involved in an incident, either as perpetrator or victim. It's been estimated that 13…See More

So You Didn't Win the Lottery…Now What?

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D. Now that all the mega-lottery winners have stepped forward, the overwhelming odds are you didn't win. Americans spent $1.5 billion in their quest to win the jackpot, fantasizing about how they would happily spend the $656 million to be paid out to the winner. As it happened, there were three winning tickets so the final after-tax take home for each will be about $100 million. Still, nothing to sneeze at. Are you wondering how winners have…See More

Milestones Are Not Set in Stone

Posted on February 9, 2014 at 1:26am 0 Comments

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.



If you've recently celebrated a landmark birthday, you may be thinking about the milestones in your life. Crossing from one personal decade into another is a significant event and takes on a life of its own. Connecting with friends who are also making this transition can help focus on what you've gained over the years – memories, perspective, wisdom – rather than on what you've lost – agility, some energy, your youth!…

No Need to Hibernate All Winter

Posted on February 9, 2014 at 1:24am 0 Comments

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.



Were you too busy on Super Bowl Sunday watching the commercials to notice that groundhog Punxsutawney Phil had emerged from his burrow? He saw his shadow and went back in to hibernate predicting that the blistery winter weather much of the country has been experiencing will last for another six weeks.



For many of us, winter weather does seem to drag on longer than we'd like. And being stuck at home in February and…

Costa Rica: New Ways to Nurture Family

Posted on December 22, 2013 at 6:41pm 0 Comments

  

I recently traveled through Costa Rica, a small Central American country where peace of mind is a natural commodity. Visiting felt like a breath of fresh air with the slow pace of living and ecological mindfulness. The country has no need for a military presence and family life is a top priority.

High unemployment in the US continues to contribute to the economic downturn. And multi-generational households increase…
