Separating Families and Creating Trauma

As a child and adolescent psychiatrist I know the negative effects of separating children from their parents — long-term impacts as well as immediate terror and anguish. As a father I can’t imagine a more horrific situation than if my sons were torn from me and my wife. I am outraged from both of these perspectives when I watch our country daily separate children from their parents on the border. In our field, we define trauma as exposure to dangerous events in which you feel fear, helplessness or horror. What we are witnessing is the widespread traumatization of children of all ages.

Awake and Fully Alive — on Purpose

People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.  Joseph Campell, The Power of Myth

A few years ago, Gale’s mother passed away after a grueling battle with cancer. As the lone Atheist in a devout religious family, Gale felt isolated and unable to grieve in the way she wanted. The inundation of spiritual rhetoric from relatives made it difficult for her to celebrate her mother’s life.

What are you deeply passionate about? What can you be the very best in the world at? What drives your business’ economic engine? Many people know what their passions are, but that’s as far as they go. They have many passions, are generalists about all of them, and don’t strongly commit to one or two. As a result, they never become really exceptional at anything—and this holds true for their businesses, as well.

Do You Have to Forgive to Move On?

My mom had one response to our childhood complaints of schoolyard mean girls: “They’re probably having problems at home. Let it go.”

A few repeated actions, done everyday, so discreet that they could easily go unnoticed.

Shelley Stone, CEO of tech company Conch, thrives on the fast, frenetic, Type A pace of her life, waking at 3:30 am for "me time" while multitasking on the treadmill, scheduling sex with her husband, power posing to rev up her adrenaline, and, when she can, squeezing in "quality time" with her two young children. It's a lot to ask of anyone, and while Shelley's career is flourishing, her husband Rafe is starting to chafe at the relentless pace. In this excerpt from The Glitch, the couple fights in their hotel room in Cap Ferrat, France about Shelley's relationship with work. Earlier in the day, they lost track of their 4-year-old daughter for several hours while they were both on business calls. For Rafe, if not yet for Shelley, it is a sign that something in their lives has to change.

It’s endurance training day, and you and your Spartan buddies have come straight from your work for the day’s real work: a two-hour run punctuated every 15 minutes by sets of 20 burpees.

You try to balance time between your job and your life outside of the office. You’re busy. You’re often stressed. You really can’t afford to lose hours from your day. But if you commute to work, that’s exactly what’s happening. You may spend an hour, two hours, or even more every day sitting in your car, stuck in traffic, wishing you were somewhere else.

We’ve been talking a lot this week about our relationship to technology, and our culture’s reckoning with it. In her commencement speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology today, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg spoke candidly about the importance of diversity, acceptance, and the necessary “human heartbeat” in technology. Sandberg addressed the need to create workplaces that welcome respect, and told graduates that they have the opportunity to make an impact at their new jobs as soon as they arrive. She also touched on the power of this year’s #MeToo movement, and talked about the necessity to create tools that will better the world.
