    For those unfamiliar with the intricacies of domestic-violence, it’s simple to scoff and say, “If I were her, I would pack up and leave,” or “Why doesn’t he just change the locks and his phone number?”  But the complexities of domestic violence, also referred to as intimate-partner violence (IPV), are anything but simple. It entails physical pain, emotional anguish and psychological distress on behalf of the abused individual along with their family, friends and coworkers.

    According to the United States Department of Justice, domestic violence is defined as a pattern of manipulative behavior, including acts or threatened acts, used by a perpetrator to gain power and control over a current or former spouse, family member, intimate partner, or person with whom the perpetrator shares a child. It occurs in heterosexual and same-sex relationships and impacts individuals from all economic, educational, cultural, age, gender, racial and religious demographic[1]. While power and control reside at the core of domestic violence, the makeup of an abusive relationship can often be hidden in a range of dynamic actions taken by the batterer against the abused.

Holiday Blues/Depression is a Thing...How Employers Can Help Their Employees During this Stressful Time of Year

Dec 12, 2018 9:22:35 AM / by Ulliance posted in employee assistance program, #RiseAbove, well-being, Holiday Blues, depression

The holiday season has begun. The weather is changing, commercials promoting holiday deals have begun to take control of the airwaves, and families are preparing for their annual gatherings. Every year, people set high expectations for the holidays. Unfortunately, most of these expectations are never reached. This factor alone is one of the primary contributors to the phenomenon called holiday-induced depression—AKA the holiday blues. 

Holiday-induced depression can impact multiple facets of a person’s life, including their relationships with family members and even their employers. It can also affect how they view themselves and basic functions including their performance at work.

Holiday-induced depression shares its symptoms with major depression, except that it rears its ugly head during the holiday season. Some of the symptoms include, feelings of hopelessness or anger, losing interest in pleasurable activities, changes in appetite, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, withdrawal and even thoughts of suicide.
