In THE LIES WE TELL OURSELVES: How to Face the Truth, Accept Yourself, and Create a Better Life (Seven Leaves Press; January 2017; $15.95 trade paper; ISBN: 978-0-9883788-8-9), Frederickson shows how acknowledging and owning the painful and shameful facts of our life leads to genuine change and profound peace. And the surest route is through collaboration with the right, wise and caring therapist.
Drawing on decades of working with people in pain and in denial, Frederickson uses real-life stories to reveal truths we all struggle to face and the universal ways we avoid those truths. He discusses:
• Why no one needs to be fixed. “We may think we need to fix ourselves,” Frederickson observes, “but often we are trying to fix our fantasies instead, the broken illusions, … [Continue reading...]
Riley Unlikely Shares the Journey of a Remarkable Teenager
Finding a Love for Kenyan Children and a Mission to Build a School
Grand Rapids, Mich., June 2016 — At the age of 13, Riley Banks-Snyder traveled to Kenya where she sat in a classroom full of first and second graders sharing a single pencil. The presents Riley was so excited to give the kids paled in importance to the school supplies that were easily accessible back home in Branson, MO. Riley realized these kids didn’t need matchbox cars or jump ropes. They needed pencils and paper.
As soon as her plane touched down in America, Riley knew she wanted to go back. At the age of 14, Riley started a non-profit, Generation Next, to help collect school supplies for Kenyan schools and returned the following year with 200 backpacks … [Continue reading...]

WHAT’S AT THE HEART OF A DECISION FOR PATIENTS WHO MAY NEED STENTS?
Understanding the right questions to ask about stents can have a meaningful impact on patient health
In the last 20 years, treatment options have proven so commonplace and effective in treating coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common type of heart disease, that many patients spend little time asking doctors about treatment advances and benefits. They instead limit their questions to economic or logistical matters, but what they should be asking is how quickly they can get back to their daily lives.
In fact, a recent Harris survey showed that most Americans have little information about stents until they develop CAD. So what are the other questions that patients should be
asking? What are the latest … [Continue reading...]

With the ceasefire deal collapsing and the UN's inability to get aid into Syria, the Amaliah organization is doing all it can to aid Syrians in need; 'It is difficult to erase decades' worth of hate, but we have to at least show who we really are. We can be proud that our country does what no other country does.'
The number of wounded who have sought medical treatment in Israel since the Jewish state began accepting wounded Syrians stands at approximately 2,500 people.
In mid-August of this year, a bus from the Jewish-American aid organization Amaliah brought 21 Syrian children and their parents to the Ziv Medical Center in Tzfat. The Syrians are all from the Qunietra region on the other side of the border with Israel. The … [Continue reading...]

Incredible news: Ahead of the G20 summit, the United States and China formally joined the Paris Climate Agreement yesterday. This historic announcement by President Obama and President Xi has catapulted the world to the cusp of formally implementing the Paris Agreement this year.
Implementing the Paris Agreement will be a major global climate milestone, but there's still unfinished business at the G20 summit.
Dumb and wasteful -- that's how a recent Bloomberg View editorial described fossil fuel subsidies. We couldn't agree more.
We're living through what is likely to be the warmest year on record, yet governments continue to subsidize fossil fuels that power climate disruption. Despite a 2009 pledge to phase out these toxic subsidies, G20 nations are currently spending hundreds … [Continue reading...]
