3/15/2013   Psychology Today: "Is The Pope Obsolete?"
 

Judging by the surrounding stink of sexual abuse scandals, financial corruption and the intractable bureaucracy in the upper echelons of the Vatican under the European old guard, it’s been heading that way…fast. But the Cardinal conclave’s stunning decision to elect a simple man of the Jesuit order from South America may very well reverse the trend. In this increasingly secular age, read more to decide is the Pope obsolete? 

3/29/2013   Forbes: "Heuristic Thinking and the Lesson from Cyprus"
 

Cyprus banks opened their doors yesterday with a strict withdrawal limit of 300 euros per person amid the fear of a bank run nationwide. They finally got their bailout deal earlier this week, yet Cypriots are still scrambling to take their euros out of the banks and even the most basic of transactions – like buying food at the supermarket – can only be done with cash. Those with more than 100,000 euros in their accounts face losses of up to 40% to finance the banks’ survival, and the public at large has, understandably, zero faith in their country’s financial system. More on Lessons from Cyprus banks.

3/30/2013   Psychology Today: "Does Jodi Arias Have Borderline Personality Disorder?"
 

As the shocking details of the Jodi Arias trial continue to cascade into our living room, everyone from armchair shrinks to casual observers has a theory on the mental state of the killer.

She has been "diagnosed” as: narcissistic, a pathological liar, bipolar and a sociopath (which I discuss in a recent blog). But, the most popular lay diagnosis recently is borderline personality disorder (BPD).

Arias is not the only high profile individual with the BPD label. There's also Casey Anthony, Sandy Hook school shooter Adam Lanza, Colorado shooter James Holmes and Robert Kennedy Jr.s’ wife, Mary. It’s almost to the point where BPD is the default explanation for anyone with inexplicable behavior. Does Jodi Arias Have BPD? 

4/11/2013   Psychology Today: "Human Trafficking In America"
 

Human Trafficking is defined by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime as "the acquisition of people by improper means such as force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them."Sex is just one aspect of trafficking. Forced labor, slavery, servitude and even forced organ donation are other horrifying aspects of this disturbing and growing activity. Human trafficking rakes in an estimated $32 BILLION a year and is tied with arms dealing as the second largest criminal industry in the world (drugs are number 1). This should scare the hell out of each and every one of us. For some reason, it doesn't.

Think human trafficking is a third world problem that could never happen in America? Think again!  View the entire psychiatric advice blog.

5/7/2013   Forbes: Emotions Are Not The Enemy Of Investors: Why Hotheads Prevail
 

At times like these, conventional wisdom tells us to take emotion out of the decision making. Investors shouldn’t make their moves based on fear or over-ebullience. Instead, they should calmly and logically assess investment goals and then put the plan into practice. This applies to everyone from professional investors and day traders to the long-term buy and hold individual. "Don’t get emotional about money” is considered conventional wisdom to be ignored at your peril- right? Wrong! Over the last five years, behavioral research is unearthing some fascinating links between emotion and rationality. Follow this link to read my psychological assessment.
