As we eagerly await our practice relocation, we are in the process of offering and forming therapy groups. We see that there is a strong need in our community for groups and our therapists are excited to expand the practice to offer these services. Among the groups offered are:

* Social Skills Groups for Children and Adolescents
* Relational Aggression Group
* Parenting Group
* Relational Issues for Adults
* Eating Disorders Support Group
* Couples “Wellness” Group
* Nutrional Counseling/Educational Group

Please note that these groups are not intended to replace traditional psychological treatment. Rather, they are more “educational” in nature and are geared towards improving skills for more satisfying daily lifestyle. These groups are not covered by insurance as insurance companies require a psychiatric diagnosis for reimbursement. Feel free to leave any questions at our site and we will respond promptly.

A dear friend and psychologist has developed probably the most comprehensive website on any and all news pertaining to childrens’ needs. The beauty of this site is that she presents the most up-to-date research in a thorough, easily-understood manner. If you are interested, please visit Dr. Debbie Glasser’s website: http://www.newsforparents.org/ . I hope you find it to be helpful.

Everyso often, I will post an entry with an interesting link or reference that will promote self-education. The topic of sexualization of girls is of particular interest to me as it pertains to my extensive experience in the area of eating disorders. There is a wealth of research indicating that girls with eating disorders are excessively preoccupied with their presentation, self-control and level of social acceptance. It is tragic, but true, that society has subtlely embedded in the minds of young girls that they should begin an early age to think about, not only their attractiveness, but worse, their sexual desireability. It is appalling what has been normalized by our culture. Who would have thought that the “Barbie Doll” would be outdone by the “Bratz Doll” figure: a doll and character whose body is severely emaciated in appearance, accentuated by an oversized head and overemphasized lips and eyes? We have, in my opinion, a responsibility to our girls on an individual, familial and societal level to be activists lest we perpetuate a cultural myth that girls are no longer sexually “off limits” or unable to integrate explicit material. I invite your thoughts and opinions via our website mailbox. I encourage you to visit the following link: http://www.apa.org/pi/wpo/sexualizationrep.pdf
