Memory is the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experiences. A repressed memory is one that is retained in the sub conscious mind, where one is not aware of it but where it can still affect both conscious thoughts and behavior. When memory is distorted or confabulated, the result can be what has been called the False Memory Syndrome: a condition in which a person's identity and interpersonal relationships are entered around a memory of traumatic experience which is objectively fals

TEENAGE DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE
TEENAGE DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE Depression is a disease that afflicts the human psyche in such a way that the afflicted tends to act and react abnormally toward others and themselves. Therefore it comes to no surprise to discover that adolescent depression is strongly linked to teen suicide. Adolescent suicide is now responsible for more deaths in youths aged 15 to 19 than cardiovascular disease or cancer (Blackman, 1995). Despite this increased suicide rate, depression in this age group is grea

Christian Prayer: A Way of Knowing What is prayer? A book titled Healing Words, written by Larry Dossey, M.D. states that “Prayer” comes from the Latin precarius, “obtained by begging”, and precari, “to entreat”—to ask earnestly, beseech, implore. This suggests two of the commonest forms of prayer—petition, asking something for one’s self, and intercession, asking something for others. There are also prayers of confession, the repentance of wrongdoing and the asking of forgiveness; lamentation,

Since we live in a violent society, we're constantly hearing arguments that seeing TV violence, particularly as kids, desensitises us so we accept real violence more off handedly maybe it even triggers real violence. But TV also shows lots of hugging. The standard plot for most family sitcoms is; (1) Problem causes family members to get mad at one another; (2) Family members abuse each other in cute ways, (3) All is forgiven by end of show and everybody hugs.

Also, it could be argued that by researching such a phenomenon as religion, it does not look like man will come to any unified agr

Capital Punishment Capital Punishment is a step in the right direction when justice is concerned and is just retribution to victims and families of victims. I believe that it is an effective deterrent of violent crime and the only acceptable punishment in cases such as premeditated murder, first degree murder and other equally or greater heinous crimes. Some people argue that capital punishment has no effect on crime but they are wrong, I have logical proof. The fact is plain, simple, and total
