https://amymarshsexologist.com/2020/01/03/apops-whats-wrong-with-this-picture/ Earlier today I asked the founder of APOPS (Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support), Sherrie Palm, to reconsider using a picture of an atomic bomb to promote her organization and public awareness of pelvic organ prolapse. I cited the continued suffering and displacement of the Marshall Island people, the secret military experimentation on the Marshall Islanders (post-radiation exposure), damage to the environment, and the medical plight of "Atomic Veterans." Her response was such that I will no longer endorse her organization until she discontinues the use of this image and ...

Do you know someone with pelvic organ prolapse (POP)? Chances are you do, or you may be suffering from symptoms of this condition yourself, without knowing the cause. Though estimates of percentage of sufferers vary from study to study, the UChicagoMedicine website says POP "is very common, with about 50 percent of women having some degree of prolapse. Over 12 percent of American women will have surgery for it in their lifetime." In the UK, "loss of vaginal or uterine support is seen in up to 30-76% of women presenting for routine gynecological care" (Barber 2016). The  Association for Pelvic Organ Proplapse Support (APOPS) accepts 50% as a workable estimate, ...

I am also a recent graduate from the University of Northern Iowa with a BA in Psychology.

Throughout my training as a mental health counselor a trend that I had notice throughout my adult life started to become more prevalent, "the effects of unspoken societal and cultural norms and stigmas on the human psyche."  However, even more significantly I began realizing the many misconceptions individuals had about mental health and the need to educate individuals around the world about the importance of caring for their mental state.  In addition to the need to openly discuss topics that appear to go unnoticed but is so vital in contributing to the overwhelming lack of mental wellness.  As one who also has a degree in psychology I had always wondered what ...

Our marriages and relationships can be very fruitful, loving and enjoyable. Couples need to learn how to use four great attributes that make for a great relationship: Those four concepts are: (a) Being Compassionate, (b) Connected, (c) Loving and (d) and caring partner.Our Spouse needs love and affection: we can never love too much.

As a Therapist-intern, the single most important aspect of the counseling relationship I have learned is that the therapeutic relationship thrives on a simple formula. That formula involves respect of self, and respect of the client. Respect of the client involves actively listening, actively reinforcing the client's values, gently allowing the client to come to conclusions about perhaps the way he/she views themselves in a negative light (if that's the case) which tends to be the case unless something else maybe going on. During the past three years of an on-going internship and learning over two private practice sites, I've usually found that the client is ...
