Self-Empathy With Ethical Responsibility and Centredness

In our previous posts, we introduced you to what self-empathy is and the importance of noticing that which takes place within your own experience. We showed how noticing with self-empathy brings insight into your own mental reactions and habits as well as the possibility to consciously act and react in the world surrounding you.

To Disclose or Not to Disclose?

Self-disclosure of sexual trauma is a question many survivors contemplate. “Do I disclose or not, and if so, to whom, under what circumstances, and how is it best to do it?” Some choose to disclose widely (e.g., posting a social media message to friends and family) while others may choose to never disclose (e.g., never telling a soul, not even to one's spouse).

Be the Change: Teen shares battle with eating disorder

I was tall, very pale, blonde, and bigger than most of my peers. I had been bigger for most of my life, and it didn’t bother me until middle school, when looks became important to everyone.
