The Psychology of the Good Deed

So you have a goal in life, a mission, and a strategy. Then you execute it and sail toward complete success. Right? Probably not. At some point stress, exhaustion, and even burnout can bring your project down. But, you can reel it in. In Her book  The Lifelong Activist: How to Change the World Without Losing Your Way Hillary Rettig argues that what prevents ambitious and idealistic people from achieving their goals are fears not of failure, but of success and change, which can lead to procrastination and life compromises. Read her solutions to these common problems. A fascinating read! Recommended. (Added to Highly Recommended Reads)

Clinical Health Psychology: Mind over Matter?

I came across a recent interview in Psychology Today with Ronald Levant, Dean of the Center for Psychological Studies at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, about the field of clinical health psychology. The link to the article can be found below. I hope you find it interesting too.
