Advancing Health and Care

We are proud and very happy to announce that NPHTI faculty Laurence Sugarman, MD, is writing a regular column for the popular Psychology Today website. Entitled “On and Off the Spectrum: Helping Children Grow their Minds,” Dr. Sugarman’s blog will be the only regular feature (so far!) on Psychology Today to highlight how children and teens benefit from therapies such as self-hypnosis and biofeedback.  A large part of what will be interwoven throughout this ongoing discussion is how self-regulation offers a lens on how to help young people — including, importantly, those who are neurodiverse — identify and use their unique talents and gifts to overcome their challenges.  Please take a few moments now to check out (and post your comments about) Dr. Sugarman’s first post, “That’s Why I’m Here,” which emphasizes one of our central tenets at NPHTI: the more that we understand and treat each child as a unique individual, the more we foster their growing-up abilities and their healthy long-term development.  (Plus, the list of upcoming posts will surely whet your appetite for more!)
