      • Acceptance and commitment therapy teaches us how to live a values-driven life even in the face of dark emotions and trauma

        https://aeon.co/essays/how-to-live-a...9582e-69418129


        ACT’s approach to these kinds of thoughts is to attempt to defuse them by being more observant of one’s own thought processes. So rather than Alice thinking ‘I might get attacked again’ and simply living this as her reality, ACT asks her to noticethat she is having a thought about getting attacked again. This might seem like a subtle difference, but it is actually quite powerful. By noticing her own thoughts, Alice increases her ability to make decisions about how to behave in response to them.

          • Childhood trauma has lasting effect on brain connectivity in patients with depression

            https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0408161610.htm

            A study found that childhood trauma is linked to abnormal connectivity in the brain in adults with major depressive disorder (MDD). The paper shows symptom-specific, system-level changes in brain network connectivity in MDD.

            • The Depths of Despair Among US Adults Entering Midlife

              https://ajph.aphapublications.org/do...PH.2019.305002

              Although the pronounced increase in death rates among this demographic group has been established, the drivers of this increase are under debate.6,7 Initial research identified suicides, drug overdoses, and alcohol-related liver disease as the causes of death responsible for rising midlife mortality8 and labeled these causes “deaths of despair.”7 Because of the concentration of these deaths among low-educated Whites and in rural areas where economic stagnation has been widely documented, scholars attributed the rise in midlife mortality to a general context of hopelessness and self-destructive behaviors reflecting despair.9,10

              The factors underlying these patterns remain unknown. However, current explanations point to labor market changes driven by globalization and technological change, leading to deteriorating job opportunities, wage stagnation, and declining rates of upward mobility for low-educated individuals.7These economic factors undermined social support by eroding traditional family structures and religious participation, resulting in despair.

              • The case for empathy

                https://aeon.co/essays/a-sophisticat...03867-69418129

                Empathy is not imagining how you might feel in the place of another. It is imagining and trying to understand what the other person feels. The difference between thinking about yourself in another’s situation and thinking about the other person in that situation is simple but profound, requiring well-developed, differentiated mental abilities. Empathy is other-focused, not self-focused. Someone with sociopathic tendencies can ‘read’ other people well and understand their emotions. But a sociopathic person reads others in order to manipulate or take advantage of that person. It is not empathy.

                The building blocks of empathy take shape in infancy and develop through a lifetime of learning. By learning from others, people fully develop empathy. Watching how adults interact can model empathy. So too can simple directions to imagine what another person is feeling.

                • An ethnography of chronic pain management in primary care: The social organization of physicians’ work in the midst of the opioid crisis

                  https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0215148

                  This study reports on physicians’ experiences with chronic pain management. For over a decade prescription opioids have been a primary treatment for chronic pain in North America. However, the current opioid epidemic has complicated long-standing practices for chronic pain management which historically involved prescribing pain medication. Caring for patients with chronic pain occurs within a context in which a growing proportion of patients suffer from chronic rather than acute conditions alongside rising social inequities.

                  A similar situation in the UK is now being given increasing media coverage.
