Depression, Anxiety, Narcisissum, or Family division are clear concerns for Dr. Carol Francis, Psychologist.  One intervention for all of these complications is volunteering.  Giving to others and Acts of Kindnes are well know for up-lifting people out of their pains.  In addition, volunteering enables those who feel worthless, meaningless and depressed to see their worth in their ability to help others.   Anxiety is reduced also when one gains a perspective on how other's have overcome their adversities.  DrCarolFrancis.com and 310-543-1824.

Volunteer Vacations, such as those offered through Global Volunteers,  also pull families together as they team up to help other communities progress.  Parents bring children to enlighten about their good fortune and ability to help others less fortunate materially or educationally.  Additionally, grandparents bring grandchildren to bond and to increase their grandchildren's social consciousness.  

Global Volunteers  is one organization which encourages cross-culture experiences which can be gained when you volunteer to help teach other languages, reading, build, paint, feed, and interface with children and adults in other parts of the world.     (GlobalVolunteers.org)

Global Volunteers  organizes volunteer opportunities for individuals & families all over the planet.  During this radio show you will hear vignetts from many volunteers who joined my family this summer as they describe their new insights and moving moments while volunteering through Global Volunteers at Browning, Montana on one of the Blackfeet Tribe's Reservations.
