The Brain that Changes Itself
DrSara highly recommends the book The Brain that Changes Itself by Norman Doidge, M.D. This easy to read book explains the latest developments in the field of neuroplasticity. The old notion that the brain is unchangeable after a certain age has been thoroughly debunked--all the more reason to start using your mind to change your brain for good.
DrSara was interviewed on NPR by Barbara Lewis of Sound Medicine. To listen to this clip, click here.

DrSara article, "Is Oral Sex Really a Dangerous Carcinogen?" was quoted on Everyday Health.
DrSara quoted: ..in an article about increased levels of postpartum depression among stay at home moms. The issue isn't whether it's better to work at home while raising your kids (every mom is a working mom) or to work outside the home, the real issue is whether you value yourself and what you do.
Realism, says Sara Rosenquist, PhD, a clinical psychologist in private practice and former clinical assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "As long as people have to work for a living, children will come second to making money to pay the rent and put food on the table. Lose the guilt. Adjust the expectations. Then you will have 'balance,' the way a mobile is balanced with some parts short and heavy and other parts long and light, but it will not be a 50-50 division of time."
