  • Few mental health patients receive evidence-based treatment
    The New York Times
    Over the past 30 years, treatments like cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and family-based treatment have been shown effective for ailments ranging from anxiety and depression to post-traumatic stress disorder and eating disorders. The trouble is, surprisingly few patients actually get these kinds of evidence-based treatments — especially not cognitive behavioral therapy.

    Is 'giving' an untapped source of workplace motivation?
    The New York Times
    Organizational psychology has long concerned itself with how to design work so that people will enjoy it and want to keep doing it. Research by the Wharton School's Adam Grant, one of the most prolific academics in the field of organizational psychology, starts with a premise that the greatest untapped source of motivation is a sense of service to others; focusing on the contribution of our work to other peoples’ lives has the potential to make us more productive than thinking about helping ourselves.

    'Play' at work boosts morale and creativity
    CNN
    As much as playing video games or exercise breaks during the day may sound like the opposite of work, companies around the world are starting to integrate them into their environments. The theory is that encouraging "play" at work not only boosts morale but also fosters increased creativity and teamwork, leading to better productivity and quality of work.
