I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers! Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo, CA nonprofit, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to businesses, organizations, clinics, schools, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting and prevent child abuse five, ten, twenty, fifty years down the road. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

Dr. Nicole Linardi is a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. She specializes in working with victims of violence (sexual abuse, domestic violence, and human trafficking).

Stages of change in treatment or recovery
.

Five stages of change have been conceptualized for a variety of problem behaviors. The five stages of change are precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenance.
.
Precontemplation is the stage at which there is no intention to change behavior in the foreseeable future. Many individuals in this stage are unaware or underaware of their problems.
.
Contemplation is the stage in which people are aware that a problem exists and are seriously thinking about overcoming it but have not yet made a commitment to take action.
.
Preparation is a stage that combines intention and behavioral criteria. Individuals in this stage are intending to take action in the next month and have unsuccessfully taken action in the past year.
.
Action is the stage in which individuals modify their behavior, experiences, or environment in order to overcome their problems. Action involves the most overt behavioral changes and requires considerable commitment of time and energy.
.
Maintenance is the stage in which people work to prevent relapse and consolidate the gains attained during action. For addictive behaviors this stage extends from six months to an indeterminate period past the initial action.
.
This post is meant for informational purposes only. If you or anybody you know is in search or need of ther**eutic services feel free to contact me at 754-300-8075 to set up your initial consultation call.

What is gratitude?
How do you express gratitude? What are you grateful for?
.

“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Philosophers and poets have long praised gratitude as one of the most desirable attitudes. Surely, each of us has much to be thankful for. Why not express our gratitude? It costs us nothing, yet yields countless benefits.
.
10 ways to demonstrate gratitude:
1. Say a kind word
2. Include others in your plans
3. Listen intently
4. Bring over lunch
5. Pay an impromptu visit
6. Email to check in
7. Phone call to say hello
8. Ask if there’s anything you can do
9. Pick flowers from your garden and deliver them to a friend
10. Offer to do an errand, help with chores.

The word gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness (depending on the context). In some ways gratitude encompasses all of these meanings. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, people usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.

In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

People feel and express gratitude in multiple ways.

The conclusion that infidelity occurs because of a deficiency in a relationship is generally wrong, said Perel. So, too, is the conclusion that a relationship must end because of it. “Everyone thinks that as soon as you find out there is an affair, you’ve got to get a divorce,” she said. “God forbid you still love the person who cheated on you.” Meanwhile, myriad other betrayals happen in relationships, she says, like contempt, neglect, and indifference. Yet “nobody tells people to get the hell out it,” she said. “It’s a real pressure, especially for women.” For the first time in all of human history, she said, there’s even shame attached to staying with an unfaithful significant other. (Recall public criticism of Khloe Kardashian when she refused to leave Tristan Thompson, or condemnation of Hillary Clinton after she chose not to divorce Bill.)

“Everyone thinks that as soon as you find out there is an affair, you’ve got to get a divorce. God forbid you still love the person who cheated on you.” —Esther Perel
To this end, Smith agreed: “You might just be married to someone who has an innate sense of adventure—there’s just certain kinds of desires within that have nothing to do with you, per se, but they are personal desires that need to be explored in some manner.”

Still, Perel isn’t suggesting you simply tell your partner to go “adventuring” w***y nilly because it’s something they “need.” What she is suggesting, however, is that having difficult conversations from the get-go about love and commitment while staying an autonomous being can help couples navigate rocky waters, especially when it comes to infidelity. “I think of relationships as stories, so when you pick a partner you pick a story. But sometimes you find yourself recruited for a play that you didn’t audition for. It’s the role that’s wrong, but people confuse changing the role with wanting to change the whole relationship and leave,” explained Perel.

Infidelity is typically portrayed as the death of a relationship; the worst case scenario short of the actual death of a partner. But our view of infidelity as “the ultimate betrayal” isn’t necessarily accurate, argues relationship expert Esther Perel. It’s actually rooted in our own problematic views of romantic relationships. Perel recently sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris on Red Table Talk to discuss why infidelity is now seen as “the ultimate betrayal.” As per usual, her thoughts were disorienting (in a good way).

“The modern romantic ideal is a tenacious model,” she explained. “The model is that, ‘I’m going to have with you everything that I was supposed to get in a traditional marriage, you’re going to co-parent and I’m going to have economic support, and we’re going to be partners, but on top of it you’re going to be my best friend and you’re going to be my confidante and you’re going to help me become the best version of myself.’”

When we have the expectation to have all of our needs must be met by one person, infidelity becomes a crisis on multiple levels, she argues; it seems perhaps more holistically meaningful than it necessarily is because of how much stock we put in our romantic relationships. “I start to think this whole thing we created was a lie, and the whole thing comes crumbling down,” Perel explained.

What is the Gottman Method?
The Gottman Method is an approach to couples therapy that is based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. The Gottman theory assesses your relationship, and helps you and your partner address your problems with research-based interventions derived from the Sound House theory (described more below). The Gottman Method aims to improve verbal communication, increase intimacy, increase respect, increase affection, remove barriers to conflict resolution and create more empathy and compassion within relationships.

The Gottman Method is very personalized for each couple. The beginning of the process involves individual and conjoint therapy sessions, in addition to questionnaires that help you judge the status of your relationship. After the initial assessment you and your partner work with your therapist to decide the frequency of your therapy sessions. After you have established the ther**eutic framework (fancy phrase for your therapy schedule and plan), you will begin ther**eutic interventions to help address the problem areas in your relationship. The ther**eutic interventions work on improving three main aspects of your relationship: friendship, conflict management, and creating shared meaning. The Gottman Method can work for all types of couples regardless of sexual orientation, socio-economic status and cultural backgrounds.

Who invented the Gottman Method?
The Gottman Method was invented by the psychologist couple Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman. Combined, the Drs. Gottman have 40 years of psychology research experience, in addition to clinical experience that they have used to create their relationship therapy methodology. During his career Dr. John Gottman focuses on marital stability and divorce prediction. He is currently Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Washington, where he continues his research of couples at the “Love Lab”.

Dr. Julie Shwartz Gottman is a clinical psychologist, who is an expert advisor on marriage, sexual harassment (including r**e and domestic violence), same-sex marraige, adoption for same-sex couples and parenting.

Many of us recognize the value of improving our feelings of self-worth. When our self-esteem is higher, we not only feel better about ourselves, we are more resilient as well. Brain scan studies demonstrate that when our self-esteem is higher, we are likely to experience common emotional wounds such as rejection as less painful, and bounce back from them more quickly. When our self-esteem is higher, we are also less vulnerable to anxiety we release less cortisol into our bloodstream when under stress, and it is less likely to linger in our self esteem.
.
But as wonderful as it is to have higher self-esteem, it turns out that improving it is no easy task. Despite the endless array of articles, programs and products promising to enhance our self-esteem, the reality is that many of them do not work and some are even likely to make us feel worse.
.
Part of the problem is that our self-esteem is rather unstable to begin with, as it can fluctuate daily, if not hourly. Further complicating matters, our self-esteem comprises both our global feelings about ourselves as well as how we feel about ourselves in the specific domains of our lives (e.g., as a father, a nurse, an athlete, etc.). The more meaningful a specific domain of self-esteem, the greater the impact it has on our global self-esteem. Having someone wince when they taste the not-so-delicious dinner you prepared will hurt a chef’s self-esteem much more than someone for whom cooking is not a significant aspect of their identity.
.
Lastly, having high self-esteem is indeed a good thing, but only in moderation. Very high self-esteem — like that of narcissists — is often quite brittle. Such people might feel great about themselves much of the time but they also tend to be extremely vulnerable to criticism and negative feedback and respond to it in ways that stunts their psychological self-growth.
.
That said, it is certainly possible to improve our self-esteem if we go about it the right way. Here are five ways to nourish your self-esteem when it is low:
