Get the Facts: 6 Common Myths About PTSD

By Katie Lange As members of the military, where traumatic events are common, it’s especially important that we understand the problem so we can get proper help.

Combat injuries, seeing friends and colleagues die and dealing with a sexual assault are big factors that lead to PTSD in the military, and our top leaders know it has nothing to do with mental weakness. According to Standard Form 86, Questionnaire for National Security Positions, having received mental health counseling is not in itself enough of a reason to revoke or deny eligibility for a clearance – several factors lead to that, not just one. Those sorts of actions can cause you to damage relationships and lead to fewer chances of moving up in the ranks – even causing you to lose rank and pay. But the majority of mental health care cases are confidential. It’s understandable that people are skeptical about getting help for mental illness, considering it’s a problem that isn’t easily solved with one counseling technique or medicine,…

How To Raise Brilliant Children, According To Science

LA Johnson/NPR You can shut her down with a "Just because." You can explain: "Red is for stop and green is for go." Or, you can turn the question back to her and help her figure out the answer with plenty of encouragement. No parent, teacher or caregiver has the time or patience to respond perfectly to all of the many, many, many opportunities like these that come along.

And with this book, the two are putting forward a new framework, based on the science of learning and development, to help parents think about cultivating the skills people really need to succeed. They're getting all kinds of messages about children having to score at the top level on some test. Hirsh-Pasek: If Rip Van Winkle came back, there's only one institution he would recognize: "Oh! And computers are always going to be better than human beings at that. You present something you call the 21st-century report card. Collaboration is everything from getting along with others to controlling your impulses so you can get along and not kick someone else off the swing. Communication comes next, because you can't communicate if you have no one to communicate with. You can't learn anything if you haven't learned how to understand language, or to read. It's the 10,000-hour rule: You need to know something well enough to make something new. And if we don't rear children who are comfortable taking risks, we won't have successes. Can you…

Refusing a search is a right, not a provocation

This is just incredible. brought a message of cooperation with police to a mostly African-American crowd of more than 200 people at Mount Olive A.M.E. I get the argument that you shouldn’t needlessly provoke them. In the interest of “cooperation,” he’s asking a black audience to give up their Fourth Amendment rights. We empower the police to protect our rights. We should certainly respect and be aware of that when interacting with law enforcement officers.
