Sexual Crimes and the Mind

Written by Dr. Caroline Leaf

Yesterday was international women's day: a time to reflect on the roles women play in our lives, the power they have, and, unfortunately, the marginalization and abuse they face on a day-to-day basis. How can we make sure that our daughters grow up in a world where they are empowered, loved and safe? How do we prevent them growing up in a world where rape and sexual harrassment are commplace? Why do some people commit sexual harassment or abuse? What drives a human being to forget their humanity?

Social Media and The Mind

Written by Dr. Caroline Leaf

Today, most people can access vast amounts of information, yet few people know how to process this information and use it to be successful at school, work and life. We now have the world at our fingertips, yet, paradoxically, more and more of us live solitary, futile lives. Indeed, more and more of us, of all ages, prefer aimlessly scrolling through Instagram, Facebook, online shopping apps or random things on our smart phones or devices than just sitting and thinking. Although we are more connected, literally, we are more isolated than ever before. As a result, problems in schools, universities, corporations and institutions and people’s lives abound as we lose sight of the power that is in our minds.

Traumatic Brain Injury & Recovery: Tips, Tools and Resources

Written by Dr. Caroline Leaf

During my years in clinical practice, I saw many patients who suffered from traumatic brain injury (TBI). Unfortunately, many were told, by doctors, that they would never be on the same cognitive or functional level as before the accident. The dominant belief at the time was that the brain could not change. I was considered radical in my belief that the mind could change and heal the brain; however, I persisted in my research and the results were nothing short of miraculous. It was not easy; my patients worked long hours and pushed through tough challenges. Yet they chose to persist, which was a key factor in their healing. I am still asked for help in this area, and although this is a very complex and unique subject, I have listed some of my tools and techniques that I used in my practice and that you can find in my resources listed at the end.
