Recent Research by Therapy Now Therapist

By Zannah Pastuk, October 20, 2011
One of the things that really sets the therapists of Therapy Now apart is their passion for psychology as a science. Being a therapist can be interesting, invigorating, and satisfying in many different ways. As with other jobs, being a therapist, at times, can be difficult. Regardless, it is the science and application of the science that inspired the study of psychology within us in the first place. That is why some of us choose to participate in psychological research as well as clinical practice -- as a therapist. That is why some of the therapists I know also enjoy doing psychological research, pedagogy, as well as clinical therapy. One of my colleagues at Therapy Now recently had an article published that would be nice to highlight here in our blog. @luba is a very qualified and experienced therapist and beyond regular clientele, specializes in adolescent psychology. Teen psychology is an area of heavy research, and is one of Luba's passions. That is why when she had a chance to participate in the study of orientations of the meaning of life in adolescents, she could not pass it up. The result was an article published in . An excerpt from the abstract: "Thereby we found out that those teenagers who are dominated by such traits as “friendly/compassionate”, “efficient/organized” and “secure/confident” give life awareness, focus and temporal perspective; perceive the very process of life as interesting, emotionally rich and full of meaning, the part of life they’ve lived as productive and meaningful to them. Teenagers with higher rate of “efficient/organized” and “secure/confident” features rather think of themselves as of strong personalities that have sufficient freedom of choice to build their lives according to their goals and ideas about meaning. [That is to say that] They believe that man is given control over his life and he can freely make decisions and embody them." Congratulations, Luba on these findings! We are all very proud of you.
