You Don't Have To Be "Nuts" To See A Shrink

From birth to old age, everyone is faced with certain predictable challenges and changes. We all must deal with difficult people, disappointments and decisions. Additionally some of us must deal with unforeseen misfortune and severe emotional or physical trauma. This can lead to attempts to relieve emotional pain which may cause even more emotional pain and sometimes physical harm as well. Psychologists can offer valuable help in solving the everyday problems of life so that they don't grow into bigger and bigger problems, and in dealing with severe trauma in ways that are more satisfying.

SUITABLE FOR:

General public. College courses in marriage and family, introductory psychology, public health. An interactive, audience-participation version of this talk is available for high school students, seeking to learn about psychology as a possible career.

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to familiarize the public with the kinds of problems that psychologists treat and the different approaches to therapy. This presentation will also correct misleading television and film images of psychologists and give a more accurate picture of what therapy is like. The ultimate aim is to de-stigmatize psychological services so that people will seek help when they need it.

If Diets Don't Work, What Then?

Research studies show that 95-99% of people on diets gain back all the weight they lost---plus some---within two years. Yet people continue to plunk down sizable amounts of money for liquid formulas, magic pills, gizmos, diet books, diet programs and memberships. If none of this works (and it doesn't), what's a person to do to lose weight?

SUITABLE FOR:

High school health, physical education and psychology classes and assemblies. College courses in psychology, public health, women's studies, fashion design, culinary arts, nutrition and pre-med. Beauty schools, professional women's organizations, medical and mental health professionals, nutritionists, school nurses, coaches and counselors.

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to dispel the many myths about weight loss and weight gain. With accurate information, people will be less likely to invest money in weight loss schemes and products which, at best, are useless, and at worst, may be detrimental to health. A natural, sound and common-sense approach to weight loss (if, indeed weight loss is really necessary) will be offered.

CONTENT:

* Cultural pressures on women and girls to be thinner than is physically healthy.

* Subconscious reasons for staying overweight.

* Sexuality, diets and being overweight.

* Three reasons people eat: physical hunger, emotional hunger,social expectation.

* Ways in which families often contribute to the problem.

* The Diet War: Mother Nature vs. You.

* Why sheer will power is NEVER enough in losing weight.

* How to tell when you're physically hungry, what you're hungry for, and when you've had enough.

* Four steps which a person must go through to "feed the heart" instead of the stomach.



DinerEating Disorders: Anorexia & Bulimia

Almost everyone has at least one relative, friend or acquaintance whose diet-gone-awry has led to anorexia or bulimia. Trouble is, the woman or girl with an eating disorder goes to such great lengths to hide it that often even her family and friends don't know about it.

This presentation will show how a person can fall into this private hell and how anorexia and bulimia are very understandable responses to painful situations.

SUITABLE FOR:

High school health, physical education and psychology classes and assemblies. Parent-teacher groups. College courses in psychology, public health, women's studies, fashion design, dental hygiene, culinary arts, nutrition and pre-med. Beauty schools and professional women's organizations. Medical and dental groups, mental health staff, nutritionists, school nurses and school counselors.

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to increase public awareness of the existence and seriousness of eating disorders. By gaining an understanding of the causes of these problems and a rudimentary knowledge of the steps necessary for resolution, hopefully, the listener will attain heightened sensitivity in identifying and dealing with anorexic or bulimic friends, relatives, students or patients.

CONTENT:

* Cultural pressures on women and girls to be thinner than is physically healthy.

* Ways in which families and loved ones often contribute to the problem.

* Starving: A powerful though life-threatening way to remain an asexual child.

* Binging: A powerful though dangerous way to get rid of painful emotions.

* The chicken-and-egg phenomenon: Physical changes in the body that keep a person binging and starving.

* Why sheer will power is NEVER enough in getting over an eating disorder.

* Four steps which a person must go through to "feed the heart" instead of the stomach.

* How to identify those who may be secretly suffering from an eating disorder.

* What to do if you suspect that someone you know has anorexia or bulimia.

* How to find an effective therapist for eating disorders.



DentalPurging Perils:  How To Save Your Teeth And Your Sanity

Do you (or someone you know) try to "get rid of" your food after a meal or a binge? Are you too embarrassed to tell even your closest friend or relative, much less---horrors---your dentist?!

Why in the world would you tell your dentist? Because until such time as you can stop "purging" (throwing up on purpose), your dentist can help you protect your teeth from the cavities and erosion caused by stomach acid. But first he has to know that you're doing it, before he can give you the proper dental treatment.

SUITABLE FOR:

Dental patients (in dentist's waiting room), bulimia patients, anyone who "purges"

OBJECTIVES:

The main purpose of this presentation is to inform people who purge about the effect this behavior has on the teeth, and to make it a little easier for them to tell their dentist.  A secondary aim is to offer some initial ideas about how to decrease the frequency of purging.

CONTENT:

*  What purging does to your teeth and how it keeps you binging

*  What not to do in an effort to protect your teeth

*  What to do to protect your teeth

*  How to get up the courage to tell your dentist

*  Why sheer will power is NEVER enough in getting over bulimia

*  Four steps which a person must go through to overcome bulimia

*  Question & answer period



What We Women Go Through To Look Good

For centuries, women have been judged on and valued  more for their appearance than for their talents, skills, personalities or accomplishments. Since the advent of "women's liberation," this has begun to change somewhat. Yet we women still spend an incredible amount of time, money, energy and worry on looking beautiful. Sometimes we even deliberately expose ourself to painful or dangerous procedures in an effort to achieve a certain look. Though we resent being called "frivolous" or "vain," we struggle to avoid worse appellations, like, "ugly," "unfeminine" or "unattractive." It is a rare woman who thinks she is beautiful and likes her body exactly the way it is.  This presentation shows how the obsession with appearance and non-acceptance of one's own body leads to self-hate, unending struggle and low self-esteem. Guidelines will be offered for avoiding this trap.

SUITABLE FOR:

High school health, physical education and psychology classes and assemblies. Parent-teacher groups. College courses in psychology, public health, women's studies, fashion design, nutrition and pre-med. Beauty schools and professional women's organizations. Medical groups, mental health staff, nutritionists, school nurses and school counselors.

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to increase women's (and men's) understanding of women's low self-esteem and concern about appearance. By raising awareness and by suggesting sensible guidelines for looking good, hopefully, more women will avoid the mental anguish, financial hardships, physical pain and medical dangers that can result from certain beauty pursuits.

* From Head To Toe

EagleCulture Shock: Welcome To America!                                 

Every newcomer to this country must undergo some major emotional adjustments. A new language, new customs, new values, unfamiliar places and faces, and a totally new way of life all contribute to the stress known as "culture shock." This presentation will help you anticipate the stages of culture shock which you will probably go through, the various ways you might react to it and the things you can do to make it easier.

SUITABLE FOR:

High school and college classes containing large numbers of immigrant students, foreign student clubs, immigrant parent groups, ESL programs, foreign cultural organizations, business or military persons assigned overseas, international tourists, refugee groups; newcomers to the area from other parts of the U.S.; Americans planning to go abroad.

OBJECTIVES:

One purpose of this presentation is to assure those who are experiencing culture shock that they are not alone. Listeners will gain a better understanding and, hopefully, a tolerance at seeing how different people handle culture shock differently. The presentation also aims to provide specific suggestions about lessening the stress of culture shock.

CONTENT:

* On "culture shock," "reverse culture shock," "inverse culture shock" and "transition shock"

* How people act when they are feeling culture shock

* Seven stages of culture shock: What you can expect

* Four ways of reacting to a new place: "going native," "going either way," "going home" and "going crazy"

* Why some people adjust easily and some don't: different people, different personalities, different situations

* Making culture shock less "shocking"



Tooth Treatment Terrors:  
   How To Get Mellow Around That Dentist Fellow

Have you been avoiding the dentist even though your teeth are deteriorating? Do you dread those dental appointments and suffer through them when you have to?

Imagine yourself going to the dentist with about as much concern as when you go to the supermarket. Impossible, you say? Not at all! Getting over a phobia is probably the one difficulty that behavioral psychologists are most successful in treating! It is definitely within the realm of possibility, no matter how far off it may seem now!

SUITABLE FOR:

Dental patients, prospective dental patients (in dentist's waiting room)

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to give hope to people who are afraid of going to the dentist and to motivate them to do something about it.

CONTENT:

*   The tiger that wasn't there

*   3 physical ways to relax your body and calm your mind

*   3 mental ways to calm your mind and relax your body

*   Mentally rehearsing a dental appointment while using the 6 techniques

*   Getting used to the sights, sounds and smells of a dental office without the dentist there

*   What the first "real-life" dental appointment will be like

*   Question & answer period



A Part Of Me Died: Emotional Aspects Of Amputation     Skier    

People who have lost a limb must deal with a lot more than just re-learning how to do things with only one hand or how to get around on only one leg. Very little attention has been given by either hospital personnel or families to the emotional reactions and stress a person undergoes after amputation and to the tremendous adjustment a person must make to accept his or her new "self".

SUITABLE FOR:

Persons who have undergone amputation; their families and friends; hospital personnel who treat such patients (physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists)

OBJECTIVES:

One purpose of this presentation is to assure those who have suffered amputation that they are not alone in their feelings. Another purpose is to acquaint family members with the unspoken emotional turmoil which their loved one is going through. Similarly, hospital personnel will come away with a heightened sensitivity to the psychological aspects of amputation. An emotionally healing in-hospital or in-home ceremony for those who have lost a limb will be described.

CONTENT:

* Types of amputation, sites and causes

* Phantom limb sensation, phantom pain, treatment, "telescoping"

* Changed body image, image of "self"

* Worries about sexual desirability

Bang, Bang! Your;re Dead!
Media & Violence In America

Most psychological reserch shows that, at the very least, seeing violence on TV or movies makes us a little more irritable, a little more aggressive and a little bit nastier than we otherwise would be. The majority of TV programs and movies show violence to be an acceptable solution to problems between people and that those who engage in it are to be admired, as long as they are on the "right" side of the law. Most viewers vehemently deny that media violence has any effect on their own attitudes or behaviors; it's just "crazy people" or people from "the wrong side of the tracks" who get pushed over the edge by watching violent behaviors. Viewers forget that the easiest person to influence is the person who doesn't think he's being influenced.

SUITABLE FOR:

General adult and teenage audiences. High school psychology and family development classes and assemblies. College courses in psychology, marriage and family, child development, social work, film, broadcasting and sociology. Medical, mental health, probation, juvenile and counseling professionals.

OBJECTIVES:

The aim is to alert listeners about the effect that violent media has on them and their children, so that hopefully, they will be more selective about what they watch. Listeners are also encouraged to join efforts against the networks and film industry to replace violent media heroes with non-violent ones.

CONTENT:

* Some Shocking Statistics

* The Surgeon General Reports: Research On The Effect Of Television Violence On Viewer Behavior

* The National Coalition on Television Violence

* The First Amendment Problem: A Solution

* The TV Spinoff Toy Industry

* Non-violent Heroes: MacGiver (the clever inventor), Starman(the gentle alien), Colombo (the brilliant bumbler), with clips (where video equipment is available)

* Making Your Voice Heard At The Networks



Assertiveness Training For Wolves & Sheep

SHEEP: Do you let people walk all over you? Do you stay silent when you wish you could speak up? Do you let others take advantage of you or treat you rudely? Do you get depressed because so many things are not going right in your life and you feel you just can't do anything about them?

WOLVES: Do you lose your temper often? Do you snap at loved one and then later regret it? Do you yell and stomp and get into fistfights, even though it gets you into even more trouble? Do you hold back and bite your tongue until you explode because you've "had the last straw"?

Learning to be assertive can change all of that! Both WOLVES and SHEEP can learn to act more like what you really are: HUMANS!

SUITABLE FOR:

General audiences. (Everyone can benefit from being more assertive instead of being passive or aggressive.) Single sex audiences. (Men tend to err more on the "wolf" side; women more on the "sheep" side).

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the listener to the general ideas of assertive behavior and to several practical techniques for handling the annoying, inconsiderate or bullying behaviors of others, without either exploding/being rude or bellying up. Self-respect and a feeling of control over one's life are the goals here.

CONTENT:

* Assertive, aggressive and passive behavior

* The cycle

* The fight-or-flight instinct

* The benefits of being assertive

* Basic techniques: The model sentence, broken record, fogging

* Strong body language, eye contact and voice

* The right time, place and person

* Advanced techniques: negative assertion, negative inquiry, opening lines, U-turns, rhetorical questions, counter-offers

* When NOT to be assertive

* The blocks to being assertive



chocolateConfessions Of A Chocoholic    
                                       

Everyone loves chocolate! Especially women. And we all seem to engage in rationalizations and other sneaky ways of getting our hands on as much chocolate as possible, without anyone finding out. One could even consider it an "addiction" in need of a 12-step program---which is exactly what this comical presentation is about!

In 1988, Confessions Of A Chocolate won first place at the club and area level competition of Toastmaster's Humorous Speech Contest, in Area E-1, California. It has since been performed a several comedy clubs in the New York area.

SUITABLE FOR:

Before/after dinner entertainment at mental health or addiction conferences. Birthday, anniversary, retirement dinners where the Guest of Honor is a chocoholic. Chocolatier conventions.

OBJECTIVES:

Laughter!

CONTENT:

How You Can Tell It's Baloney:
"Cures" & "Discoveries" In Psychology,
Medicine & Other Sciences

Even sophisticated, educated people often fall prey to con artists or are taken by claims of unbelievable cures and magical occurrences. People who are less educated or desperate are even more vulnerable. Being an expert in any one field is no guarantee for knowing how to think critically about any field.

The consequences of believing claims that are not true can be devastating. People have lost their savings, their health, their relationships and sometimes their very lives because they acted on their belief in extraordinary paranormal or pseudoscientific claims.

SUITABLE FOR:

High school health, science and psychology classes and assemblies. Parent-teacher groups. College courses in the sciences, psychology, public health, nutrition and pre-med. Medical groups, mental health staff, nutritionists, social workers, school nurses, school counselors, pastoral counselors, geriatric workers.

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to increase critical thinking skills and come away with a rudimentary understanding of the scientific method, so that listeners will better be able to evaluate fantastic claims. Listeners will hopefully learn the skeptic's motto: "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence," and the Better Business Bureau's motto: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true."

CONTENT:

* 12 causes for your "red flag" to go up

* 3 things to ask about the source of the "discovery"

* The difference between "reliability" and "validity"

* 4 levels of scientific knowledge

* 7 threats to "internal validity"

* 5 threats to "external validity"

* Evaluating specific claims suggested by the audience



StethoscopeTake Two Aspirin And Call Me In The Morning:
How To Get Your Patients To Follow Your Instructions

Do you realize that by the time your patients walk out the door of your office, they have already forgotten 50% of what you told them??!! They are sure to forget much more by the time they get home, and just about everything by the time they see you again. Much of what they do remember is likely to be incorrect. Those who do correctly remember some of your instructions rarely carry them out completely and faithfully and for the amount of time prescribed.

Rather than be surprised or annoyed at the lack of treatment adherence, count on it! Deal with it as an integral part of treatment, not as an afterthought or something to address only after it becomes a problem!

SUITABLE FOR:

Medical doctors of all types, psychologists, social workers, nurses, dentists, podiatrists, nutritionists, counselors, physical therapists, occupational therapists.

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this presentation is to provide health care professionals with concrete, pragmatic tips for increasing treatment adherence in their patients/clients.

CONTENT:

* Treatment Adherence: Definitions

* Resistance: Why Patients Don't Do What You Tell Them

* The MOST IMPORTANT Factor In Increasing Treatment Adherence
