Jeannie V Pasacreta, Psychiatric Nurse  in Newtown
“My expertise and passion relates to the expanding need for quality, compassionate services aimed at managing the physical & emotional consequences of chronic stress especially as it relates to family violence & chronic medical illness. I am motivated by an observation of enhanced psychiatric vulnerability related to proliferating stress & diminishing support that increasingly characterize modern life. While life expectancy & responsibilities proliferate, globalization limits support and increases stress. Paradoxically, quality mental health services are diminishing while demand increases exponentially. Services aimed at rising depression rates & maladaptive behaviors linked to our national obesity crisis are 2 areas where urgent need and my expertise coincide.

Play Therapy Psychiatrists
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.
