How does stress affect your public speaking skills?

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 1:19:00 PM Australia/Adelaide

Having to give a talk or a speech in front of a large group of people is one of the scarier things we might find ourselves having to do at some point in our lives. In those situations, ideally we want to give a flawless, well-rehearsed delivery, and getting too stressed is often linked to becoming – literally – lost for words. But is there any actual evidence for this link?

Effects of Childhood Bullying Last at Least 40 Years

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 10:38:20 AM Australia/Adelaide

The first ever long-term study of the mental scars that bullying leaves finds its effects are still detectable 40 years later.  The findings, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, come from the British National Child Development Study which includes 7,771 children who were born during one week in 1958 (Takizawa et al., 2014).  When they were 7 and 11-years-old, their parents were asked whether they were being bullied.

Thursday, April 17, 2014 1:49:32 PM Australia/Adelaide

When you’ve done something good, or performed a task well, it feels great to get some praise for it.

Bullying is bad for your mental health

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 12:05:20 PM Australia/Adelaide

Whilst many researchers have noticed that there appears to be a relationship between experience of psychotic symptoms and experiences of bullying, very few longitudinal studies have been carried out to investigate this further.  That is to say, very few studies have assessed whether or not someone is being bullied at one time point, and then followed them up years later to see whether that appears to have had an impact on their mental wellbeing at a later time in their lives.  There are even fewer longitudinal studies lasting past five years in length and which also control for pre-existing difficulties – in fact, to date, there’s just one (Wolke et al, 2013).
