            • Do physiotherapists effectively deliver psychological interventions?

              https://bodyinmind.org/psychological...ody+in+Mind%29

              I worked as part of the MDT in a minimal dependency psychiatric unit for a couple of years, as none of my team wanted to do it.

              I use a lot of hands on relaxation techniques, useful memes can be implanted when the patient is relaxed to the extent that their breathing slows and deepens, it is important to refrain from saying anything that arouses their curiosity, affirmations of what they are already able to do are useful, as old news is unlikely to pique their interest.

              • Oral Contraceptives Could Impair Women’s Recognition of Complex Emotions

                https://neurosciencenews.com/oral-co...emotion-10717/

                Women deciding whether to take an oral contraceptive have access to a lot of reliable information about the potential physical effects.

                Besides birth control, hormonal contraceptives can help control acne, heavy periods and endometriosis – as well as reducing the risk of ovarian, uterine and colon cancers. On the downside, the pill can increase slightly the risk of breast and cervical cancer, blood clots and high blood pressure.

                But the psychological effects of OCP use are less well documented.

                “More than 100 million women worldwide use oral contraceptives, but remarkably little is known about their effects on emotion, cognition and behavior,” says study senior author Dr Alexander Lischke of the University of Greifswald, Germany.

                “However, coincidental findings suggest that oral contraceptives impair the ability to recognize emotional expressions of others, which could affect the way users initiate and maintain intimate relationships.”

                • Identification of movement synchrony: Validation of windowed cross-lagged correlation and -regression with peak-picking algorithm

                  https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0211494

                  The term nonverbal behavior is used to describe various behaviors such as gaze, gestures, facial expressions, body postures and movements [1]. The investigation of nonverbal synchronywithin a dyad has gained increased consideration within areas of research such as physician-patient interactions [2], psychotherapist-patient interactions [35], mother-child communication [68], human-machine interactions [9], interactions within friendships [10, 11] and courtship behavior [12]. Nonverbal synchrony refers to nonverbal behaviors of interacting individuals that are connected to each other on a temporal level [11, 13].
                  Another possible reason for having (or not having!) family members in the treatment room. A very dominant partner, or parent can make a positive or negative difference to outcome. I find it particularly useful for children to have school friends present.

                  • Mind the body (1) A most intimate and obscure relation with one’s body

                    http://philosophyofbrains.com/2019/0...ones-body.aspx

                    Although introspectively familiar, it is hard to exactly pinpoint the nature of the specific relationship that we have uniquely with our own body. We are aware of our bodily posture, of its temperature, of its physiological balance, of the pressure exerted on it, and so forth. Insofar as these properties are detected by a range of inner sensory receptors in the skin, joints, muscles, tendons, inner ear, and internal organs, one may conceive of bodily awareness on the model of perceptual awareness. Yet in many respects bodily experiences depart from standard sensory experiences.

                      Jo, this is fascinating, and something I understand within myself. Left temporal-parietal lobe damage at birth left me with a huge disconnect to my right arm and hand, and figuring out how to "make it do things" has been a lifelong challenge. Thank you! Cathy

                      "life long challenge", but I bet it gives you an edge as a practitioner, who can bring something profound to the treatment experience!

                      Thank you, Jo. Yes, it's given me a whole different level of connection - and credibility - from the young ones to the elders. And bearing internal witness to how my brain was trying to figure things out.. fascinating.

                            • Like the chemical process of osmosis, migration is unstoppable

                              https://aeon.co/ideas/like-the-chemi...d0dfe-69418129

                              This shift of populations isn’t just an ethical or metaphysical dilemma to be resolved at the level of ‘us’ versus ‘them’. It isn’t about the right to own land and enforce borders, or the relative worth of individuals versus groups. Instead, the pressures driving immigration should be seen as natural and unavoidable – like chemical reactions; from that perspective, a reduction in the gradients would be the only possible long-term solution.

                              Sadly, most policymakers focus on how to best perpetuate the imbalance. The most popular and immediate reaction is to increase the impermeability of the membranes separating countries. But beefed-up border security or the erection of theoretically insurmountable walls does not take into account the enormous power of desperation. As the British-Somali poet Warsan Shire has written: ‘No one leaves home unless/home is the mouth of a shark.’
                              I have Viking genes, so may be descended from aggressors as far as the UK is concerned. As hominids evolved in Africa, many of us are descended from migrants. I work in London, a world city and have met many travellers from all over the world, most are financially secure, others are funded by those who have taken an interest in their welfare. Currently there is serious interest in interplanetary travel. I doubt that it will happen in my lifetime, but I'd love to see how it develops.
