Prioritizing leisure and authentic human connections refuels our energy and improves the meaningfulness of our actions. Rather than mindlessly chasing hyper-productivity, valuing time and savoring experiences leads to more purposeful living.

Creative work can be exciting and rewarding, but it also requires a lot of energy and stamina.

When faced with disappointment, do you respond with self-compassion or self-criticism? Do you find yourself setting unrealistically high standards for yourself?
In her article, student opinion writer Shannon Doyle explores the constraints imposed by perfectionism on today's students and suggests ways to redefine restrictive self-perceptions.

Do you feel pressure to be the best or to never make mistakes?

In a recent study, behavioral scientists examined people's misconceptions regarding the secrets they keep. They found that individuals tend to anticipate more negative judgment for revealing secrets than they actually receive.

College students are more isolated, anxious, and despondent since the pandemic , often choosing to interact through text message or zoom rather than through in person contact.

The pandemic left many students anxious and lonely, still choosing to go to class online, watch games on their phones and eat meals in their rooms. ‘We’ve never had a calm time when we can just focus on being kids.’

A recent study suggests that despite our tendency to avoid political discussions with those who hold opposing views, such conversations can ultimately be more rewarding than we anticipate. Through several experiments involving hundreds of U.S. adults, researchers discovered that people tend to underestimate the potential for social connection with strangers who disagree with them politically. These findings were published in Psychological Science, read more below:

Many of us avoid discussing politics with someone who holds an opposing viewpoint, assuming the exchange will turn nasty or awkward. But having those conversations is far more gratifying than we expect, new research suggests.

Young Adult DBT Skills Group at AICT

The American Institute for Cognitive Therapy is accepting new participants in our Young Adult DBT Skills Group beginning April 10th. New Members ages 18-30 can join as late as April 30th.
The group will meet weekly onWednesdays from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM on our HIPAA-compliant Zoom platform.
We will begin the Emotion Regulation module. This module focuses on increasing awareness of our emotions, utilizing skills to regulate their level of intensity, and building resiliency. These skills help reduce the frequency, strength, and duration of intense negative emotions. In these uncertain times of triggers such as the psychological impact of COVID-19 and navigating a new normal, this module will provide adaptive coping skills to reduce the force and impact of intense negative emotions in daily living. New group members are welcomed for the first three weeks of the module.

Dr. Heather Glubo Ph.D. , Director of Behavioral Medicine, Clinician, will be leading the YA DBT group. She is a New York State licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and specialized training in health psychology. Dr. Glubo’s clinical health psychology training focused on the mind-body connection in
treating neurological and medical conditions. Dr. Glubo is also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and runs the young adult group at AICT. She completed an intensive training course through Behavioral Tech – A Linehan Institute Training Company and a full-year externship at Bellevue Hospital Center’s Intensive Personal Disorder Program. Dr. Glubo has extensive experience working with patients to more effectively regulate their emotions, enhance their problem-solving skills, reduce problematic or impulsive behaviors, and more skillfully navigate interpersonal dynamics.
We are sometimes able to accept clients outside of New York State.

The rise in loneliness for all demographic groups and age groups is partly the result of the reliance on social media and smart phones, which took off in 2008. We spent less time and face-to-face contact then at any time in history.


When it comes to loneliness, the decline in s*x and our increasingly depressed culture, phones are an obvious culprit. What good is it to deny that?
