The Ambush Hug

Thu, 31 Jul 2008 12:48:19 +1000

The session ends. You and your client rise and you move holding the door open…………………………………… ………………….at that moment of passing through she suddenly turns, slides her arms around you, buries her head on your shoulder and says “Doctor I am...

Boys Own Empathy Drug

Tue, 20 Mar 2007 15:53:08 +1100

Interesting little snippet in New Scientist this week. A quick snort of Oxycontin improves your empathy but only if you are male. The trust hormone, it seems, is also the mind-reading hormone. A sniff of oxytocin, which underpins social attachment...

Is CBT Just a Load of B?

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 12:52:58 +1100

A plug for this book, just out from one of my clinical colleagues in Sydney. Guidelines for the Management and Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder. This is a very practical hands on book focussing on what to do and how...

How long before we are doing therapy with our clients in an MRI scan. Interesting news just out today on neurophysiological measures of empathy in both clients and clinicians. Hat tip: Eureka. As a total aside Eureka is one of...

Therapeutic Oxymoron Laid to Rest

Fri, 09 Feb 2007 10:40:52 +1100

Posting has been a little light lately as I discover, like 60 million bloggers before me, the inverse relationship between blogging and work. In the mail this week is Paul Gilbert and Robert Leahy’s new book titled: The Therapeutic Relationship...

Easy and Cheesy: Simple Techniques from the Happiness Research

Tue, 30 Jan 2007 13:12:50 +1100

I like the happiness stuff, how can you not. It is simple, positive and easy to apply. Sometimes I like a break from all the deep stuff that demands so much more from me both as a person and a...

Bring out your Blogs

Thu, 25 Jan 2007 13:41:49 +1100

Discovering stuff and blogs in the blogosphere is an interesting experience. Googling or Dogpiling, as I prefer, for psychology blogs provides a limited list of the more well known blogs. However I like the way the discovery of many new...

To Blogroll or not to Blogroll

Wed, 24 Jan 2007 15:24:33 +1100

If I list every blog of interest that comes my way, my blogroll can get out of hand. You see some sites where the blogroll disappears down the right column into the ether and beyond. This makes for some interesting...

How Many of you are in There: The Concept of Multiple Selves

Tue, 09 Jan 2007 11:29:09 +1100

The latest Journal of Clinical Psychology (sadly no free access) has the whole journal devoted to exploring ideas around the internal multiplicity of the self. Basically this is the idea that the self has or consits of multiple parts, aspects,...
