Psychologists have found a simple way to improve academic performance and even health. When people sit down and write about a negative experience and they revise their story to see it in a more positive way, it changes their behavior and helps them succeed.

[Disclaimer: "Kathy's Insight" is usually simply another pithy excerpt from the Scooped article] "As you write about the troubling, confusing event again and again, eventually you begin to make sense of it. You can put those consuming thoughts to rest."

The fear, the sights, the smells, the bewildering feelings and confusion are things survivors of a natural disaster never forget. I know. I have an emotional bond with the survivors of Hurricane Katrina that extends back to Memorial Day, 1948. Fifty-seven years ago, when I was seven, my family survived the Vanport (Oregon) Flood. We were among the lucky ones who got out alive, and - like the Katrina survivors - once out of harms way, we faced the daunting prospect of starting life over with nothing but the clothes we were wearing. It is inappropriate to compare the magnitude of Katrina’s devastation with what happened in Vanport, but the haunting similarities have caused me to revisit a childlike anguish I thought the years had erased.
