  • Healing from emotional trauma after the marathon bombing
    Harvard Health Publications
    The bombs that exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed three people, physically injured nearly 200 others and traumatized thousands more. Recovery and healing are beginning for the families of those who died, for the injured and their families and for others touched by this tragedy. The explosions will leave a legacy of emotional scars along with the physical ones, even among those who weren't anywhere near the blasts.

    Threat delusions linked to violence in first-episode psychosis
    Psychiatric News
    Delusion-provoked anger in individuals can contribute to serious violence. But is the anger a reaction to the delusion or part of it? There is ample evidence that delusions sometimes lead to violent behavior. But when and why they do so has not been clear.

    EA Research Summit steering committee releases summary report
    Employee Assistance Professionals Association
    The summary report for EAPA's Employee Assistance Research Summit, held last year during the 2012 World EAP Conference in Baltimore, is now available. The purpose of the summit was threefold: 1) to assess the current state of EA research; 2) to encourage networking among key stakeholders; and 3) to build a foundation for the construction of an EAP-focused practice-based research network. In attendance were a diverse group of 55 invited practitioners, researchers, academics and government agency representatives. A steering committee, chaired by Dr. Dan Hughes, will remain in place and will continue to meet regularly to maintain the momentum generated by the summit.

    Dealing with poor performers in government — EAP referral can be key
    The Washington Post
    According to John Palguta, who spent 34 years working on federal human resource management issues, supervisors fire between 8,000 and 10,000 employees every year because of poor performance and misconduct. Many supervisors who proactively manage their employees find that they're capable of actually improving individual performance by setting clear expectations, providing the right equipment and training or otherwise supporting the growth of their employees.

    Ecstasy studied to treat PTSD
    Cincinnati Enquirer
    Dubbed the "hug drug" and "X" by its users, the illegal drug ecstasy is being researched as a possible treatment for sufferers of serious stress disorders. But a lot more research is needed before ecstasy-assisted psychotherapy would ever be made legal in the U.S., says Gary Gudelsky, a University of Cincinnati professor who has spent 25 years studying side effects of the drug on the brain.

    The Denver Post
    It comes in all shapes and sizes, and it varies from employer to employer, industry to industry. A winning workplace culture doesn't happen by chance. Nor can it be forced.

    Social events don't build unity for those who differ from the rest of the team
    The Ohio State University via PhysOrg
    The workers who may have the most to gain from attending company social events may be the ones who actually get the least value from them, a new study suggests. Researchers found that, in general, workers tended to report closer relationships with their colleagues the more that they attended company social events and shared their nonwork lives with their co-workers. But that positive association between workplace sharing and closer relationships didn't occur for workers who were racially dissimilar from their colleagues — for example, the only black person in an all-white office.
