Love is More Than a Four Letter Word By Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D. and Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. Long before it was a song, the saying was a part of our conversation – and it\’s especially appropriate during February, the month of love: Love makes the world go \’round. With all this whirling, love can make you feel off balance and dizzy. Sometimes it\’s tricky to keep your personal world turning without having it spin totally out of control.

When Boomerang Kids Move Back Home By Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D. and Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. Not since the Great Depression have so many fledgling adults moved into the empty nest with mom and dad. This cyclical trend has accelerated along with the economic crisis. Faced with school loans, debts or no job, it makes sense to head for home – with its emotional security and financial safety net.
