Possibly: Binaural Beets are reported to help with relaxation, creativity, sleep & meditation. However, individuals also indicate that they can be used for astral projection & other spiritual journeys. Would be cautious about attempting use for later reasons. * Sleep well, eat healthfully, remain physically active and exercise your brain to improve creative & critical thinking. ...Read more
No evidence for this: Classical music is wonderful, relaxing and exciting at times both recorded and attending live concerts (nothing like it). But there is no proof that your creativity or intellectual capacity will be altered. You might extend your creativity to newer areas while relaxing with classical music and it might stimulate alternative thinking. Your infant may sleep better with it but it will not be smarter. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you tell me, are job descriptions that require team skills and good communication skills discriminating against autistic?
There : May be some jobs out there that are, but sometimes the autistic mind can outperform piers if they are able to get by with some basic ability and training. Keep looking, there is something out there! ...Read more
Not uncommon: After all, it's nice to have a caring thoughtful person listen to your every word. But clients usually don't know very much about their therapists personally, and so are "in love" in their imagination mainly. Also, therapists are trained & duty-bound not to reciprocate — to maintain professional boundaries. Best to discuss your feelings with your therapist, & use it to learn about yourself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Practice: a wide variety of exposures. Wide variety of different puzzles.... free app ones on tablets for example. Frankly, you might want to give up on creative and thinking skills.

Auditory agnosia, a much rarer condition, means the inability to identify sounds conceptually despite normal hearing, e.g., inability to identify a sound as a cough. Amusia refers to cognitive deficits specifically involving music, especially pitch discrimination. ...Read more
Can someone with schizoid pd seem outgoing and socially engaged, despite a lack of sincere emotional interaction? Do they bond with family members?
Schizoid PD: People with schizoid pd consistently lack desire for intimate human connection. They may have families and jobs, but keep people at a distance. They mostly appear cold and dull in affect. They would be unlikely to seem outgoing or socially engaged, but are able to respond to carefully selected others whom they need intensely. Some of these could be family. ...Read more
Yes they do!: Assisted living facilities are long-term programs, regulated independently by each state. In fact, a large number of residents often have alzheimer's or other dementias. Services are provided on a 24-hour basis and include treatment and care based on individualized assessments. Dignity and quality of life are also key elements of care (see www.Alz.Org). ...Read more
Evidence-based: Treatment of autism is intensive, repetitive behavioral & educational therapy at the child's developmental age. When a young child is ready, "peer therapy" is effective, adult-supervised play with a neurotypical peer in multiple settings. Group therapy at age 6 & > is repetitive, rote training in basic skills. Dan & other unproven therapies are reviewed in "pediatrics" nov 2012, on aap.Org or app. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hello. I have been opening up to some people willing to listen about my past eating disorder. Should I feel bad about this since it’s personal? Thanks
Not particularly : Those in your inner circle should be aware of what you are going through & be supportive. You should also be talking with an unrelated therapist to explore the type of things that may have triggered the process. Those are feelings you should keep private until you understand them better. ...Read more
Doubtful: If the music relaxes or interests you or excites you then there is no harm in it. If the listening distracts you from doing other important things in your life than you might be overdoing it. Hopefully it is not too loud which can affect your hearing and disturb the neighbors. ...Read more
intensity?: Chronic exposure to high intensity sound at any frquency will eventually degrade your ability to hear in the long run. If you have to do this activity, wear ear protection if possible. I have serious reservations with those going down the street in cars with the stereo blaring so loud it vibrates the car and with attendance at high intensity rock concerts. ...Read more
Sometimes: Very loud music, listened to on a regular basis can gradually damage hearing so that over the years your high pitched tones and eventually medium tones will diminish. Keep all noises at a comfortable level. This is why ear protection is now a standard item in noisy industrial environments. Headaches are also caused by loud noises including music. ...Read more

Unpleasant, annoying: It may be annoying and unpleasant, hence it may be uncomfortable to your ears. Hence it may be "painful", but try to see beyond the voice, the content and the person.

Yes. It is not even: necessary to talk when inducing hypnosis. There are many non-verbal ways to do this. The question then becomes what to do when in the altered state. If you are clear on the goal of clinical hypnosis it can be helpful even if wording is not understood consciously. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Hard to say...: Both dentists can look at your condition and decide to treat it differrently... That's the very broad lattitude that is given to healthcare providers in diagnosing and treating a problem. Can't possibly tell you who to listen to, since we don't even know what your problem is and what each of them is recommending! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A Book! Not An i-Pad: Depends on you. Some like to do both. In fact, I saw a guy at the gym last night on an indoor bike with the TV and radio both blasting while he also read from a book. Go figure. So try them for yourself. I read Moby Dick every night for many months and fell asleep each night after two pages. Choose music that doesn't engage you too much, like ambient or mild classical. Shy away from The Who or U2 ...Read more
Not ideal: It's obviously not ideal ... But, if you're doing it - just listen and don't look at the screen (ie, use ur phone laying down not the computer) - as this can mess up your sleep cycle. Also, I'd suggest turning off autoplay. Last, be extremely careful that the earbuds don't cut in to your inner ear canal - as this can cause damage. Hope that helps! ...Read more
