Mindfulness and Addictive Behaviors

Mindfulness and Addictive Behaviors | Video Of The Day Influences | Scoop.it

"This study examined the relationship between mindfulness and various addictive behaviors (i.e. alcohol abuse, pathological gambling, sex addiction, and compulsive buying) in a community sample. A short but comprehensive composite measure of mindfulness was constructed...... Inverse correlations emerged between the nonjudgmental attitude and alcohol abuse, pathological gambling, and sexual addiction, ......The findings of this study support the use of mindfulness as a treatment for substance abuse and suggest the possible usefulness for the treatment of other addictive behaviors."

Bill Herring LCSW, CSAT's curator insight, June 15, 2013 8:30 PM

Curator comment: "Mindfulness", a state of nonjudgmental self-awareness, has become a popular topic in the field of behavioral health, and this article continues that trend.  The authors used the Compulsive Sexual Behavior Inventory (CSBI) to measure the sexual dimensions of their study.  It would have been nice if they had shown more consistency by avoiding using the phrases "sex addiction" and "sexual addiction" interchangeably and if they had defined the term other than via the CSBI (which does not use either term).  The "Composite Mindfulness Questionnaire" (which is included) is interesting.


Note: This article is currently available in its entirety through Open Access, which is always nice for those without university or other institutional access.

World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 2011 | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 2011 | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization | Video Of The Day Influences | Scoop.it

Sound recordings and moving images are extremely vulnerable as they can be quickly and deliberately destroyed. Essentially emblematic of the 20th century, audiovisual heritage can be irretrievably lost as a result of neglect, natural decay and technological obsolescence. Public consciousness of the importance of preservation of these recordings must be engaged and the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is intended to be the platform for building global awareness.

 

UNESCO has adopted 27 October as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage to better focus global attention on the issues at stake, in cooperation with the Co-ordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) and other partners. A growing number of archives around the world will be commemorating this Day with activities that highlight the fragility and vulnerability of this heritage, while celebrating the work of the heritage institutions that have helped to protect it.

 

Film, television and radio are our common heritage. They help to maintain the cultural identity of a people but countless documentary treasures have disappeared since the invention of image and sound technologies that permit the peoples of the world to better share their experiences, creativity and knowledge.

 

All of the world's audiovisual heritage is endangered. No where can it be said to be preserved but through initiatives such as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage and the Memory of the World Programme, the precious work of preservation professionals is given impetus to manage a range of technical, political, social, financial and other factors that threaten the safeguard of heritage.

 

UNESCO encourages everyone, everywhere to join us in celebrating 27 October by showcasing their precious collections as part of a global endeavour to promote the value of audiovisual heritage.

If Life Feels Like a Battlefield, Mindfulness Can Help

Susan Taylor's curator insight, December 3, 2013 5:36 PM

You start with the WHY's...Why me? Why now? Why is all of this happening?  You move to the WHEN's...When will things get better?  When will things be different?  When will it all end?  "Wrestling with our thoughts and feelings can be likened to a war within ourselves."

 

So if life feels like a battlefield, mindfulness can help you to get out of your own way.  Through mindfulness, you can learn to observe your thoughts differently.  And in doing so, it becomes easier to change the relationship you have with those thoughts. 

 

It's true that mindfulness practice is not some miraculous quick fix.  Yet over time, "you will learn to identify the internal struggles – the thoughts, language, feelings and strategies you currently use and apply a different way of relating to them."

 

Instead of fighting your own personal war, why not instead become the skillful observer of it?
