Jung: An Introduction
Lead Exposure in Children
"Managed Care"Managed Health Care - "Managed Care" or "Mangled Care"?
From former President Bill Clinton's State of the Union Address, January 27, 1998:
"One hundred and sixty million Americans are in managed-care plans. These plans can save money and can improve care. But medical decisions should be made by medical doctors, not insurance company accountants. So I urge the Congress to write into law a Consumer Bill of Rights that says this: You have the right to know all your medical options, not just the cheapest. You have the right to emergency room care, wherever and whenever you need it. You have the right to keep your medical records confidential. Traditional care or managed care, every American deserves quality care."
APA's new brochure provides consumers with some useful guidelines for seeking online mental health services, and launches the APA into the 21st century with this new look at the intersection between technology and psychology.

Violence in the Schools
"It is painfully clear that it takes repeated tragedies such as we have just witnessed in Colorado for parents, reporters, and legislators to once again ask 'WHY' did this happen and whatcould we have done to prevent this? Only after such senseless acts is there an interest in understanding the psychology of alienation, and hatred toward school and toward fellow human beings. Clearly, if mental health is important to our society, there needs to be increased rather than decreased access to mental health services for children in schools." - Michael Fenichel, Ph.D., President, New York State Psychological Association, School Psychology Division
