Ari Margolis , MMHC LPC Lakewood, NJ 08701, USAChildren and adolescents from dysfunctional families/High risk teens:
All teenagers must grapple with issues involved with the beginnings of adult identity formation. Pressure from peers, insecurities about competency, body image and attractiveness to others, pressures to experiment with drugs, alcohol and sex are all part of a teens daily struggle. High risk teens present a propensity of having a more difficult time dealing with these challenges than their “normal” peers.
Growing up in a dysfunctional family significantly impacts, and often complicates, teen development. Typically, children from such homes suffer from abuse and neglect, be it physical or em…
The three phases of therapy are diagnosis, therapy and follow-up. In the first phase, diagnosis, the therapist asks lots of questions and identifies the problem.
Gathering information helps to formulate a plan of what to do. The down side is that the same questions that give the therapist a better picture of the problem actually adds to the client’s despair and depression.
The reason for this is that the client has been thinking obsessively …
I’ve heard people say that you are not allowed to question Hashem.
I never understood that.

When Hashem make the sivlos Mitzraim even worse after Moshe Rabeinu’s first encounter with Pharoah, Moshe asked questions of Hashem.
I understand that we are not on the darga of Avraham or Moshe, but …
There is power to our choices. The Talmud describes a perspective of wisdom, of prophecy and of God on what happens to the sinner.
Firstly, what is a sin? Tradition teaches that it is like shooting an arrow at a target and missing the mark. We are endowed as human beings with the desire for greatness, and instead we act shamefully. We are endowed with the desire to be helpful and instead we are hurtful. We want to empower and we dis-empower. We w …

The role of the Logotherapist is to facilitate the dialogue that conscience hears. The questions that the Logotherapist asks are actually questions that the client needs to ask him or herself …
These song lyrics from 1975 resonated with me:
To those of us who knew the pain… And those whose names were never called When choosing sides for basketball.
They described my life from ten years earlier.
Never being chosen for basketball, baseball, or anything else, was painful for me but I wouldn’t consider it being bullied.
Being punched in the gut while on line at the lunchroom, being mocked, being called names, being …
I have just spent an intensive week at the Internal Compass music festival. One of the things I learned from Henrique Eisenman, a musician from Brazil was ‘You don’t need to play in order for the music to exist.’ Music exists in an inner space and an outer space. For example, you can play a melody repeatedly and feel it reverberating in your head. Alternatively you can hear a melody in your head first and then play it. You have …
