How to treat your wife?

A wise husband, and one that seeketh to live in quiet with his wife, must observe these three rules. Often to admonish: Seldome to reproove: and never to smite her The husband is also to understand, that as God created the woman, not of the head, and so equall in authoritie with her husband: so also he created her not of Adams foote, that she should be troden downe and despised, but he tooke her out of the ribbe, that shee might walke ioyntly [jointly] with him, under the conduct and government … [Read more...]

Judge not by what you see on the outside…..

Some of us who seem quite nice people may, in fact, have made so little use of a good heredity and a good upbringing that we are really worse than those whom we regard as fiends.Can we be quite so certain how we should have behaved if we had been saddled with the psychological outfit, and then with a bad upbringing, and then with the power, say, of Himmler ?

The essence of all cognitive theories is that we are not controlled by events,but by the meanings we give to events. -ed … [Read more...]

(Summerfield, Asylum-seekers, refugees and mental health services in the UK , Psychiatric Bulletin (2001) 25: 161-163)Sometimes the most helpful thing we can do for people is help them to become active- unemployment is associated with early death, divorce, family … [Read more...]
