The FDA and Public Health

The secret, at least from a patient’s point of view, will lie in discovering which medical devices (and drugs) have the best track record before allowing a physician to prescribe or install them. Somewhere down the road, physicians and other medical professionals may also be forced to cooperate in this grassroots endeavor to weed out the chronically faulty knee and heart implants, since the FDA is apparently unable to separate the merely useful from the potentially lethal.

A prime example of this laxity would be FDA approvals granted to Minnesota-based Medtronic for its heart devices. Medtronic, which manufactured and subsequently recalled – or has been sued over – a number of these implants, won the final round in a court battle with Charles Riegel ( Riegel v. Medtronic) by default. This blanket escape clause, however, does little to inspire confidence in future FDA approvals.

Nonetheless, the Court’s ruling now makes the FDA the agency of last resort, so it behooves consumers to know which devices are actually approved, as opposed to those that merely claim they are. Concerned consumers can visit the FDA’s approval website to search for this information by product type. The site also provides information and advice on human and animal drug approvals (including AIDS drugs), biological products used in vaccines, blood donor protocols and food additives and packaging (via links to other pages).

The FDA’s stated mission is to protect public health by regulating drugs, biologics, medical devices, food and cosmetics. But, as the FDA points out, not all of these products are required to submit proof to the FDA that their products are safe, effective, and work in the manner described.

Even where products do undergo pre-market approvals, the Phase I, II and III human trials may be based on information obtained from the manufacturer, which allows manufacturers to fudge or even conceal negative results. The FDA rarely does independent testing, but instead rubber-stamps the manufacturer’s findings. This, more than anything, explains why a heavily promoted drug like Celebrex (the only surviving successor to Vioxx), is now being prescribed sparingly by physicians, who recognize it as having cardiovascular risks equal to, or greater than, the banished Vioxx.

The FDA’s failure to identify hazards before they affect a significant portion of the population has become especially true under the Bush administration. An operant phrase from the dirty 30s (caveat emptor; let the buyer beware), when American product manufacture and labeling was virtually unsupervised, is even truer now in the unmanageable oughts. However, FDA approval is better than no approval, so wary consumers would be advised to check out the site before agreeing to a surgical procedure, taking a prescription drug, or purchasing a medical-type product.

The FDA approves medical devices in two categories. Those whose failure would create a high risk for patients are FDA-approved via clinical studies. Non-critical devices like knee replacements, hip replacements, catheters and the like only have to demonstrate that they are substantially the "same as" products currently on the market to earn FDA approval. Low-risk devices like splints, retainers and braces are exempt under the "same-as" clause.

The FDA does not approve cosmetics, except those containing color additives. This includes hair dyes. The FDA also does not approve medical foods, like diabetic supplements, nutrition supplements, or diet supplements, nor does it approve infant formulas. It also does not approve food labels, relying on the manufacturer to accurately state the contents and values of the given food. If your health supplement says it will give you more energy, you can be certain the FDA had no part in establishing that claim.

Now that you know what the FDA does, and does not, approve, it really is up to you to manage your own risk. Read labels carefully, avoid products or websites that claim FDA approval where none exists, consult your physician when in doubt, and report violations of FDA-approved labeling (or adverse reactions to FDA-approved products) by visiting the FDA’s reporting website.

Take health-risk management into your own hands, which is where it properly belongs. No one will ever have as much vested in your health as you do.

Building Effective Communication Skills

5 critical communication skills that everyone needs to know.

One of the primary reasons that couples enter therapy is because they don’t properly communicate with each other. Strong communication is the cornerstone of any relationship and can have wonderfully positive effects on all parts of your professional and personal life. If you don’t have excellent communication skills, your relationships can suffer. Friends and family may find you hard to get along with, you may not feel a close connection with your partner, or your colleagues will have a hard time collaborating with you. Being a good communicator takes practice, and it’s not just about speaking well. Many factors make up a good communicator, all that can be learned through therapy and practice. Want to learn more? Read about the 5 critical commutation skills that everyone needs to know to be a better communicator.

Listening: Being an effective listener is the most crucial aspect of being a good communicator. They say that if you’re not listening, you’re not learning. Being a good listener lets you properly advance the conversation and understand your partner’s needs appropriately. Being a poor listener will make your partner, friend, or co-worker feel undervalued and misunderstood.

Non-verbal communication: Eye contact, hand gestures and body language all play an important part in successful communication. If you’re trying to be open to a new idea looking closed off, intimidated, annoyed or distant won’t help advance the dialogue. When speaking, pay attention to stances, hand gestures, eye contact or movements that are deemed too aggressive, or too passive. You’ll be surprised how quickly the tone of a conversation changes when you change your body language.

Empathy: Being empathetic is a difficult skill to acquire. Having empathy allows you to understand the feelings of another person and can go a long way in having excellent communication skills. Telling someone that you know how they feel or get why they made a specific decision can be a great way to let them know you care about their feelings.

Calmness: Staying calm when speaking is an incredibly important skill to learn when trying to become a better communicator. Not loosing your cool when you’re talking about emotional topics is a hard yet incredibly useful skill to master. Keeping calm when speaking will help you work through issues without becoming angry, hurtful or saying something you may regret later.

Feedback: Being able to provide feedback within a conversation is an integral part of being a good communicator. It helps to show the person you’re speaking with that they are understood and appreciated. It also helps distill conversations which can help you and your partner come to a mutually agreed upon conclusion.

Do these skills sound like things that you and your partner could use a refresher course on? Do you think you can improve all of your interpersonal relationships with better communication? If you want to work on building effective commutation skills, talk to your therapist today. They can help you become the effective communicator you know you can be.

What does the term self-esteem mean to you?

What does the term self-esteem mean to you? How important is it to develop one’s self-worth and attitude towards themselves? Merging various definitions, self-esteem is defined as ‘how we value ourselves; it is how we perceive our value to the world and how important we think we are to others, it reflects a person's overall subjective enthusiastic evaluation of their worth. It is a judgment of oneself as well as an attitude toward the self’.

Usually, you’ll hear the terms low self-esteem or high self-esteem being used to describe the character/personality of an individual depending on how they react in any given situation. The characteristics of a person with a high or positive self-esteem include confidence, optimism, trusting, ability to accept mistakes from others and themselves as well as to learn from them. While the characteristics of an individual with low self-esteem include a pessimistic outlook on life, fear of taking risks, mistrusting others and a blaming behavior.

PACT - Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy

Relationships aren’t easy. Not only do you have to dedicate time and energy to your significant other, but you also have to balance it with the stressors of your life, the stressors of their life, and the knowledge that you are each bringing unique life experiences to the table. These stressors and unique experiences complicate the way you react to life and each other. When it all becomes too much, some couples seek couples therapy to help them weed through all of the complicated issues. The best therapies are those that consider the underlying psychological and biological issues that are at play within every human. That’s why the PACT method of couples therapy is so effective at helping couples thrive.

A Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT), developed by Dr. Stan Tatkin, is a fusion of attachment theory, developmental neuroscience, and arousal regulation. Due to its unique style and 3-pronged approach, PACT has a reputation for effectively treating the most challenging issues many couples face.

The three tenets of the PACT method are well researched and help to explain why many couples have problems in their relationships.


The study of the human brain. By understanding how the brain works, we can better understand how people react to love, security, attachment danger or stress. Learning about how the brain functions will let us see why we behave the way we do.

Attachment Theory:

This gold standard in child psychology has been recently extrapolated to help explain the way adults navigate through relationships. Attachment theory helps to explain the biological need to bond with others and how early experiences with caregivers create a blueprint that people utilize in adult relationships. If a person hasn’t felt well cared for as a child, they can have issues being in healthy relationships as adults.

The biology of human arousal:

This scientific area of study helps to understand and regulate the moment-to-moment ability to manage one’s energy, alertness, and readiness to engage. Having a sense of how you handle and react to moments of stress or excitement can help you become more successful in your relationship.

These areas of science work together to provide couples with the knowledge of why relationship problems happen and how they can work within themselves to fix them.

PACT therapy is unique for other reasons as well. A typical therapy session can last up to 6 hours, allowing participants to work on issues in a more in-depth manner. There is also close attention paid to shifts in face, body, and voice, to teach participants to better regulate their emotions. This hard work often pays off quickly; PACT often requires fewer sessions as compared to other forms of therapy to achieve results.

Providing couples with the knowledge that some of their relationship problems stem from biological and psychological conditions often brings them comfort and helps them navigate everyday stressors in a more productive manner. PACT helps couples work towards healthy, fruitful relationship that's built on trust. And after all, isn’t that worth a little work?

Anxiety and Depression

While Anxiety & Depression are not exactly the same, they are typically grouped together due to their similarities. It's also common for people to experience both at the same time. Additionally, many of the treatment options for both conditions are similar.

Art Therapy

Art Therapy

Art therapy (also known as arts therapy) is a creative method of expression used as a therapeutic technique. Art therapy originated in the fields of art and psychotherapy and may vary in definition.

Art therapy may focus on the creative art-making process itself, as therapy, or on the analysis of expression gained through an exchange of patient and therapist interaction. The psychoanalytic approach was one of the earliest forms of art psychotherapy. This approach employs the transference process between the therapist and the client who makes art. The therapist interprets the client's symbolic self-expression as communicated in the art and elicits interpretations from the client.[1] Analysis of transference is no longer always a component.

Current art therapy includes a vast number of other approaches such as: Person-Centered, Cognitive, Behavior, Gestalt, Narrative, Adlerian, Family (Systems) and more. The tenets of art therapy involve humanism, creativity, reconciling emotional conflicts, fostering self-awareness, and personal growth.

Although art therapy is a relatively young therapeutic discipline, its roots lie in the use of the arts in the 'moral treatment' of psychiatric patients in the late 18th century, this moral treatment, Susan Hogan argues, “arose out of utilitarian philosophy and also from a non-conformist religious tradition”, and in a re-evaluation of the art of non-western art and of the art of untrained artists and of the insane[clarification needed].

Art therapy as a profession began in the mid-20th century, arising independently in English-speaking and European countries. The early art therapists who published accounts of their work acknowledged the influence of aesthetics, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, rehabilitation, early childhood education, and art education, to varying degrees, on their practices.

The British artist Adrian Hill coined the term art therapy in 1942. Hill, recovering from tuberculosis in a sanatorium, discovered the therapeutic benefits of drawing and painting while convalescing. He wrote that the value of art therapy lay in "completely engrossing the mind (as well as the fingers)…releasing the creative energy of the frequently inhibited patient", which enabled the patient to "build up a strong defence against his misfortunes". He suggested artistic work to his fellow patients. That began his art therapy work, which was documented in 1945 in his book, Art Versus Illness.[9]

Edward Adamson, “the father of art therapy in Britain”.
The artist Edward Adamson, demobilised after WW2, joined Adrian Hill to extend Hill’s work to the British long stay mental hospitals. Other early proponents of art therapy in Britain include E. M. Lyddiatt, Michael Edwards, Diana Raphael-Halliday and Rita Simon. The British Association of Art Therapists was founded in 1964.

U.S. art therapy pioneers Margaret Naumburg and Edith Kramer began practicing at around the same time as Hill. Naumburg, an educator, asserted that "art therapy is psychoanalytically oriented" and that free art expression "becomes a form of symbolic speech which…leads to an increase in verbalization in the course of therapy." Edith Kramer, an artist, pointed out the importance of the creative process, psychological defenses, and artistic quality, writing that "sublimation is attained when forms are created that successfully contain…anger, anxiety, or pain." Other early proponents of art therapy in the United States include Elinor Ulman, Robert "Bob" Ault, and Judith Rubin. The American Art Therapy Association was founded in 1969.

National professional associations of art therapy exist in many countries, including Brazil, Canada, Finland, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, Romania, South Korea, and Sweden. International networking contributes to the establishment of standards for education and practice.

Diverse perspectives exist on history of art therapy, which complement those that focus on the institutionalization of art therapy as a profession in Britain and the United States.
