Introduction to Psychodrama from Marlo Archer

I was in a family feud over money and needed some advice. I invited my dad to have a talk with me about it on a picnic table near Lake Michigan at the Summerfest grounds, under the Hoan Bridge on a bright, sunny day in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He told me I didn’t need to worry about what my aunt and uncle thought, and he knew I’d make the right decision. We spoke of other things as well. We laughed and cried as I caught him up on everything that had happened in my life since he had died. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that my dad is gone?

A Skeptic's guide to the mind - a talk by Robert Burton at Google

This is a talk at Google by Robert Burton, formerly chief of the Division of Neurology at Mt. Zion-UCSF Hospital and Associate Chief of the Department of Neurosciences, whose new book is A Skeptic's Guide to the Mind: What Neuroscience Can and Cannot Tell Us About Ourselves. It is challenging and worthwhile listening to more than once.

Neuro-Bunk, Neuro Fiction

Can what you eat influence your sense of justice? Will a simple drug make you more likely to help a stranger on the street? Neuroscientist Molly Crockett asks and answers these and many other fascinating questions about the influence of neurotransmitters, like dopamine and serotonin, on altruism and decision-making. Neuroscience may hold the answer, says Crockett, but there are still limits to our ability to draw conclusions from neural research. Crockett received her PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2011, and she is currently working with support from the four-year Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship studying human altruism in labratories worldwide.

Word of mouth is dead 2

There probably isn’t a field of human endevour where someone, or in all likelihood many people, don’t regularly say “it’s not as good it used to be” or “it’s not like it was in the good old days”. Now, we are not about to start a debate about the impact of rose tinted glasses when it comes to looking back on the way things were. But when it comes to marketing, we often hear clients and marketeers talk about the way that marketing has changed… and not always for the better.

Word of Mouth is Dead

During the last five years, countless authors, writers and media outlets have posited that the proliferation and fragmentation of media has irrevocably changed the way we consume media. And with good reason. For the first time ever, in 2010, online ad spending surpassed newspaper ad spending. What does this mean? Articles aren’t shared with a scissors and a 44 cent stamp. Word of mouth is dead. Articles are being retweeted, liked and stumbled. Your Grandma would have thought these techniques were used when “necking” and “going steady” were in vogue. Consumers are online today, not in line at the newspaper stand.

A historical journey of Psychodrama and Nursing

Little has been written about the links between Dr J.L. Moreno, his psychodramatic methodologies  and the nursing profession. In this article Dr Wendy McIntosh explores nursing and academic literature and identifies strong links between them, many of which have not previously been reported within the context of major influences on nursing. This paper presents parallel journeys, the author’s personal journey with the work of Moreno and the significant influence of Moreno’s concepts and techniques on the profession of nursing since the 1930s.
