Differing Parenting Styles...Harmful or Helpful?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 24th, 2021
Dear Therapist: We live in a duplex and are friendly with our neighbors. We do however have different parenting styles. Recently our 9-year-old daughter has become very friendly with the young girl next door. She spends hours on end there and seems to enjoy being there much more than home. I kind of see where she is coming from as there are practically no rules and not much in the way of supervision either. There is no moderation and things that …

Call Me Stonewall Husband
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 24th, 2021
Dear Therapist: Overall, my husband and I—married for ten years with five wonderful children—have [a] beautiful...[relationship]. We have a loving relationship and bring harmony and happiness into our home on a day-to-day basis. The problem is when we have something to work through. When I do something or say something that upsets my husband he totally shuts down and becomes handicapped at communicating. He is not overall an emot …

Does Mental Illness Exist?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 24th, 2021
Dear Therapist: My sister has a difficult time with her 2 of her children. They are socially awkward, struggle in school and seem to me to be very anxious. Whenever they go through something difficult, she seems to quickly find a "medical" related reason why whatever is happening is happening. One time it's strep, one time PANDAS, or Lyme disease or whatever else. She runs around from doctor to doctor getting all sorts of treatments for them.&nbs …

Choosing the Right Therapist
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 24th, 2021
Dear Therapist: I'm looking for some direction about something that I've been thinking about for a while. Maybe you can help. Often, I struggle with thoughts and feelings that make it hard for me to get through my day and I think I have felt like this since I was a teen. Feeling this way has affected my relationships at work, with my kids and my siblings. My current state has even put pressure on my relationship with my husband. It&rsqu …

Is Everything an Addiction?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 24th, 2021
Dear Therapist: I would like to know the panel’s opinions regarding video games. I have heard that it is possible to become addicted to video games and I am not sure how this could be possible considering there is nothing the person is taking into their body like nicotine or alcohol. I understand that there are more productive ways that I can be spending my time but it seems that there is a tendency now to turn everything into an addiction. …

Dealing with a Bully
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 1st, 2021
Dear Therapist: I am looking for advice on how to deal with bullying in school on the elementary school level. I have found a lot of conflicting opinions on it. There are those that emphasize standing up to the bully, others ignoring the bully, and those that say neither works. A lot of warnings about how having the child who is being bullied change his/her behavior is "blaming the victim" and that how can you really expect a young kid to stick u …

Parent's Verbal Abuse
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 1st, 2021
Dear Therapist: I am aware of someone who is emotionally unhealthy and demonstrates real negative verbal abuse such as constantly putting others down/bad name calling, explosive reactions, and ignoring and not caring about others’ needs.  This person is completely incapable of raising children and constantly lashing out at them and destroying them to pieces. 
I am very concerned for these children and the negative effects the …

Diagnosis Withholding
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 1st, 2021
Dear Therapist: Our 26-year-old daughter recently went through a time where she was down. We didn’t think much of it and she appeared to get better but then showed some troubling behaviors. On the advice of our rov [rabbi], we brought her to a psychiatrist. We are also still on a waiting list to see a therapist. The psychiatrist believes that she has bipolar disorder and is giving her medication for that. Our question is, does it …

Do Not Remove This Label...
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 1st, 2021
Dear Therapist: A well-known educator recently spoke out strongly against "labeling" a child. Even if a child has a mental health issue and is receiving services, we must make sure he/she is not labeled. The remark struck a chord with me as 2 of my children are currently in therapy one for behavioral issues and one for anxiety. While the idea of not labeling a child sounds nice in theory, I am not sure how to put it in practice. At the end of the …

Here a Diagnosis, There a Diagnosis, Everywhere a Diagnosis...
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 1st, 2021
Dear Therapist: As there has been an increase in mental health awareness in the community I am noticing that people can be somewhat quick to point out what they believe are mental health issues in others. I see this particularly when it comes to personality disorders, more specifically Borderline Personality and Narcissistic Personality. I see these terms get thrown about and I am hoping you can clarify for the readership. Are personality disorde …
