Psychiatry Is Like Retail
written by Anne Sagalyn, M.D.
on Thursday, 16th May, 2019

Psychiatry, like retail, has busy seasons. Unlike retail, psychiatry’s hectic periods occur secondary to fluctuations in seasonal light exposure, rather than during major holidays. For years, I treated patients for worsening, or new onset depression, around Halloween, October 31.  Some of this was Seasonal Affective Disorder, some simply the effects of diminishing light ...

The Marriage Counseling Workbook: 8 Steps to a Strong and Lasting Relationship
written by Emily Cook, PhD, LCMFT
on Tuesday, 16th April, 2019

Although my book was published almost exactly one year ago, I’ve been surprisingly reluctant to publicize it since. The overlap of writing the book with my postpartum months after the birth of my second child amazes me. Ethan was born in June, I finished writing in December, and the book was in print by the following March. I used to tell people, “Well, I’m already up ...

written by Julia Korenman, M.D.

written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Thursday, 28th February, 2019

I often heard the expression “We are what we eat,” which turned me immediately off from certain foods.  Who would like to be a cow? Chicken? Pig? Should I be a turnip or donut? An apple or brownie?

Wilkerson’s writing was so interesting, that I bought HER book, “The Warmth of Other ...
