Chapter
Describing the mental health implications of our current planetary ill-health, and exploring first-person narrative, this chapter argues that each of us is either within or between disasters, and that it is the responsibility of those who are between disasters to be working on programs of climate mitigation, climate adaptation, and reckoning with r...
Article
Full-text available
The complexity, uncertainty and charged nature of climate change make it a unique stressor that is irreconcilable at an individual level. This experience of impossibility leads to splitting of reactions into polarities, or dialectics, which must be contained to reduce climate distress and held open for generative use towards climate adaptation. We...

Article
Climate change is increasingly recognized as having multiple adverse mental health effects, many of which are just beginning to be understood. The elevated rates of suicides observed in some communities affected by climate change and rising rates of suicide in the United States as climate change intensifies have suggested the two may be associated....

Article
Intravenous amobarbital sodium can facilitate food ingestion by immobile catatonic patients. We have described a case in which this technique was used, citing its advantages over tube feedings.
Article
In vivo and in vitro sister-chromatid exchange (SCE) induction and cell replication kinetics were compared in P388 cells exposed to 4 mutagens. While concordance was observed between SCE induction and inhibition of cell replication kinetics, certain mutagens were more potent in vivo while others were more potent in vitro. These results indicate tha...
Article
To examine the effect of an aging environment on sister chromatid exchange (SCE) induction, Ehrlich ascites tumor (EAT) cells were introduced into young and old C57BL/6J mice. Background SCE levels were not significantly different in either EAT cell or normal bone marrow cell populations between young and old animals. Despite a decline in SCE induc...
