¿Es mi hijo adicto al móvil?

 

Es muy probable que el móvil sea la nueva tecnología que haya cambiado más la vida de las familias, de ahí la importancia de pararnos a pensar en el impacto que están teniendo las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC) en nuestros hijos.

Cuando hablamos de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación, solemos hacer referencia a aquellas tecnologías que permiten transmitir, procesar y difundir información de manera instantánea.

Todos hemos incorporado a la vida cotidiana el uso de las TIC, como una herramienta de interacción, de socialización, de trabajo, de diversión y de aprendizaje. Sin embargo, en la adolescencia es donde se aprecia un mayor incremento. El contenido de las TIC se convierte en un elemento de interacción y socialización, principalmente con sus pares, debido a que comparten aficiones por determinadas actividades como pueden ser la música, moda y cine entre otros. Además, les permite intercambiar información como por ejemplo: páginas Web de interés, bloggers, trucos para pasar etapas en los videojuegos etcétera.

Hola,

 

Soy Mamá de R- mi hijo de 19 años. Él está tomando Sertralina de 50g 1/2 por noche. Resulta que suspendió el remedio por causas económicas y esta casi 5 noches sin tomarla. Siente mareos y algo de náuseas. Mi desesperación es tanta que necesito saber si le compro la pastilla ahora que he conseguido algo de dinero ¿se la puedo dar de día? Sería para empezar desde ya. Muchas gracias y saludos cordiales.

A travel guide for couples: 5 tips for working through holiday difficulties

You’ve booked the flights, triple-checked your reservations, and ensured that you packed enough sunscreen to protect a small school of children from the sun, but chances are you haven’t given much thought as to how to prepare your relationship for the exciting vacation ahead. Summer vacations are often visualized as being blissful and seamless, but frequently these lovely adventures are paired with arguments, stress, and unmet expectations. One of the most overlooked aspects of organizing vacations is how to handle and plan for the relational difficulties that tend to arise.

Using the Cognitive Triangle to Combat Anxiety and Depression

Feelings of anxiety and depression are an experience that nearly all human beings share. Whether it results from the pressure of society to “succeed,” a desire to please others, family/relationship stressors, or pressure from work/school, both anxiety and depression can create a debilitating experience within our bodies that often prevent us from acting as our highest-functioning self.

The cognitive-behavioral theoretical approach is one form of therapy commonly utilized to address symptoms of anxiety/depression. This short blog will attempt to provide a simple understanding of the tool called “The Cognitive Triangle.” In addition to the description itself, a few helpful interventions focusing on each point of the triangle will be provided.

The main concept of the triangle is that self-awareness and metacognition (the ability to think about one’s thoughts) are the key to begin to manage those thoughts, feelings and resulting behaviors that often times feel out of our control.

Nuestra psiquiatra la Dra. Orlanda Varela responde online las preguntas de aquellas personas que piden consejo sobre tratamiento psiquiátrico. Si deseas hacer alguna consulta, no dudes en contactarnos a través de nuestro formulario.  

Quisiera hacer una consulta. En el mes de marzo del presente año tuve una convulsión "epiléptica" es lo que dijeron pero mi encefalograma salió muy bien al igual que mis tomografías. La psiquiatra me dijo que como tenía tanta tristeza y emociones juntas convulsioné- que no es epilepsia pero no saben bien. En agosto fue mi última regla el 28 y hace casi 15 días me enteré que estaba embarazada y eso me hizo feliz. La verdad sufro desde la convulsión ataques de ansiedad generalizado. Me han quitado los medicamentos; solo me dejaron Fenitoína una por la mañana y otra por la noche. Tomaba Fluoxetina y Clonazepam. Pero desde que me las han quitado he tenido mucha ansiedad y no se que hacer ni que tomar. Estoy desesperada llena de miedo a que pase algo malo. A mi y a mi bebe. Que puedo tomar? Estoy desesperada. Espero que puedan ayudarme. No puedo dormir cada noche.

Empower Your Child

We have all had times when our children come home from school, upset because of a disagreement they have had with a friend. Our immediate reaction, once they have told us about the awful things that this friend has said or done, is to want to call that friend’s parents to make sure he/she is told off and doesn’t do it again. But is this really the best thing to do? In many cases, what actually happens is that the other child’s parents feel offended, as if their child was being accused of some kind of bullying, so it ends up being a dispute between the parents rather than the children.

When Studying Abroad is not as fun as you hoped

Studying abroad has become more and more popular during the last decade. In 2009 there were 3.7 million international students worldwide. Comparing this figure with those from previous generations, an exponential growth can be observed: in 1975 there were only 0.8 million (OECD, 2009). Most students who decide to go to another country are looking forward to interacting with different cultures and understanding others’ beliefs and values. However, are we always prepared to embrace diversity?

Parent's Guide to understanding the Pokemon Go phenomenon

What is it about? Psychiatrist Dr. Alberto Rodriguez Quiroga explains.

When the company Niantic Inc. developed “Pokemon Go”, absolutely no one could have imagined the consequences of the game. Since its launch on July 6, 2016, rivers of ink have flown, news related to the game has occupied plenty of hours of TV and everyone has the feeling that Pokemon (short term for Pocket Monsters) are almost everywhere. These virtual creatures have unique characteristics that define them and make them so coveted by players around the world. They have unique skills, but also weaknesses, so it is best to fully know each one of the 18 different species of Pokemon. For example, water Pokemon species are very effective against fire type Pokemon, but instead are weak against the electricity type. On July 15 the game became available on the smartphones of the Spanish users. It is an augmented reality game, this means that is uses GPS and Google Maps to know the player’s real position at all times. Since then, it is easy to see groups of people swirling around the "Pokestops" landmarks of the city (such as statues or monuments) where players can get, always for free, the precious "Pokeballs", which are the only tool to capture these creatures.

Three scientifically-proven ways to boost your willpower

Scientists have found that willpower is like a muscle. The good news is that you can actually train your willpower and make it become stronger. The downside is that it gets tired when we use it for extended periods of time. That’s why surfing the internet or Facebook becomes even more “irresistible” at the end of a long day, food choices get worse as our willpower muscle weakens and it even explains why dieters are more likely to cheat on their partners.
