Healing with Language: Every behavior is useful in some context
SCS Matters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When someone else's behavior is self-defeating or different from what we believe is helpful or useful, it's easy to judge or label the behavior as "wrong" or "bad." The irony is that the more we judge a behavior, the more resistant it becomes to change.

Every behavior was learned because it helped satisfy a particular need at a particular time or in a particular place. Although a behavior may not be useful in a given context at this time, it may still be useful in another way or another time or place. In the context of attending to a health problem, procrastination may not be useful. In the context of becoming a former smoker by delaying the next cigarette, however, procrastination serves a useful purpose.

Remember that all behaviors are learned responses to the external environment and every behavior has a positive intent. The positive intent for smoking, for example, may be the desire to be more "grown up," a desire to fit in with a crowd, or even — ironically — the need to breathe deeply. It is a matter of where and when to use a particular behavior. Although a behavior may not be useful in a given context now, it is a learned skill, and you can help the person find new and appropriate ways to use that skill. The most effective way to change a behavior is to provide the individual with an alternative behavior that produces the same benefit, in a more effective, more appropriate way.

Chlorine in tap water linked to increase in number of people developing food allergies
The Daily Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Chlorine in tap water has been linked to the rising number of people developing food allergies, a study has revealed. The chemical, which is used to treat drinking water and is also present in commonly-available pesticides and household items, may weaken food tolerance in some individuals. Researchers found adults with high levels of dichlorophenol — a chemical by-product of chlorine — in their urine, were up to 80 percent more likely to have a food allergy. More
