When children experience the loss of a parent, they may feel that their lives will never be the same. They often feel loss and abandonment. As pointed out by Kenny Slaught, “The I Have a Friend mentor program allows these young people to share their feelings with someone who has experienced something very similar.” The individual will have a companion for as long as he or she needs, and can explore some of the most sensitive subjects in an open and supportive environment with the mentor. In turn, the mentor offers support and practical guidance on the hurdles that will come.

Multiple Hospice of Santa Barbara counsellors are effectively integrating EMDR into treatment plans after becoming certified in the cutting-edge therapy. As a result, many clients using this therapy service have reported greater feelings of ease and comfort than they experienced with talk therapy alone. EMDR does not remove the need for talk therapy, but is built to be an important complement for clients with particularly difficult grief or trauma. Kenny Slaught, via his blog, encourages all interested individuals to “learn more about EMDR and other therapies offered through the hospice online at HospiceOfSantaBarbara.org or by calling the organization directly at (805) 563-8820.”

Kenny Slaught, a property investment expert and dedicated philanthropist, has recently commented on his blog at KennySlaught.com about the new state-of-the-art therapy available for veterans at Hospice of Santa Barbara. Known as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), the modality has been used effectively to treat veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by using eye movements in a unique way to process trauma and reframe raw, vivid imagery associated with it in the hippocampus. This results in the brain “re-filing” the painful memory, giving individuals the opportunity to deal with the trauma in a more objective manner.

Other factors affecting the current situation are particularly Californian in nature and are the result of a general scarcity of land in desirable locations. Undeveloped land is priced prohibitively high, especially within the Los Angeles and San Francisco metropolitan areas. Kenny Slaught notes regular setbacks in construction of new projects, resulting in many owners choosing to stay put and renovate, as Proposition 13, the 1978 amendment to the state’s constitution, makes relocating a daunting choice. Though the law caps future property tax increases at 2% based on 1975 assessments, an exorbitant exception takes place when a sale happens and a property is reassessed based on its current value. Ultimately, yearly totals are framed by purchase figures that vary monthly, as real estate demand in California shifts seasonally with most homes moved in June and a small increase in sales at year’s end. Also having an affect on yearly totals are asking prices, interest rates, consumer confidence, negative equity status, quantity and quality of homebuyer jobs, disposable income, saving rates, and elements such major foreign investments.
