World of Psychology: Oppositional Conversation Style

World of Psychology: Oppositional Conversation Style | Counselling and Mental Health | Scoop.it

In this blog Gretchen Rubin writes about the people she has met who automatically disagree with everything she says. She calls this mismatching Oppositional Conversation Style. I have added a comment about NLP and the book Words the Change Minds by Shelle Rose Charvet. There you will find this phenomena described and considered as a way some individuals have of understanding the world around them.

The final step is helping clients learn how to use their emotions skillfully and appropriately in their everyday lives. Emotions are always experienced in a particular context and clients have to learn appropriate ways to deal with them within the contexts in which they arise.

Here are some of the ways I have helped clients begin to experience and then use newly emerging emotions.

New Studies Shed Much-Needed Light on Alcohol-Induced Memory Blackouts | The Partnership

New Studies Shed Much-Needed Light on Alcohol-Induced Memory Blackouts | The Partnership | Counselling and Mental Health | Scoop.it
National survey studies suggest that roughly one in four college students who drink will experience a blackout in a given year, making blackouts a surprisingly common outcome of excessive drinking.


Blackouts are periods of amnesia, caused by excessive consumption of alcohol, during which a person actively engages in behaviors but the brain is unable to create memories for what transpires. This leaves holes in a person’s memory that can range from spotty recall for the events of the previous night (known as fragmentary blackouts) to the utter absence of memory for large portions of an evening (known as en bloc blackouts).

It is inexcusable that mental health treatments are still underfunded

It is inexcusable that mental health treatments are still underfunded | Counselling and Mental Health | Scoop.it
Mental health problems account for nearly 40% of all illness but only 13% of NHS funds are devoted to their treatment, according to a major report published today by the London School of Economics. This gross inequality between mental and physical health might have been understandable in the 1960s, when we had few effective treatments and much of what was offered was no better, and sometimes worse, than tender loving care. Fifty years on, it is inexcusable.
