Dr. Beth Grosshans, a graduate of Harvard Medical School, is an experienced New Jersey clinical psychologist and school consultant. Beyond her professional activities, Dr. Beth Grosshans is an active philanthropist with a history of supporting community organizations such as Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood is a national leader in sex education, operating with the overarching objective of supporting reproductive self-determination and providing access to quality health-care services, such as birth control.
One of the most effective, modern methods of managing fertility is through the use of birth control. There are a large number of pills to choose from, some of which provide benefits beyond fertility control, such as easing the discomfort and pain associated with a woman’s menstrual cycle. Unfortunately, the diverse nature of birth-control options means that certain pills will work for some women, while others will need to continue the search for their ideal match. Planned Parenthood personnel are adept at providing information on different birth-control options, including pills, implants, shots, and sponges, among others.
A retired clinical psychologist, Beth Grosshans holds relevant degrees from the University of Cincinnati and Ohio State University. A proponent of women's reproductive health, Beth Grosshans is a regular supporter of Planned Parenthood.
Beyond its comprehensive health services and programs, Planned Parenthood launched an interactive mobile application designed to help women track their period as well as birth control methods that could potentially affect it such as the pill, patch, implant, shot, and ring. Available on Google Play and the App Store, Spot On is unique because it details your period and birth control the way real people do and doesn't make assumptions about your gender, reproductive goals, or sexual orientation.
The app provides reminders and tips to keep you on top of your cycle and also has a section in which users can track their symptoms and moods to learn what affects their menstrual cycle and how their cycle affects their body. Additionally, it can track when you might be most fertile if you do wish to conceive.
The author of a book on parenting, Dr. Beth Grosshans has spent many years in clinical psychological practice in New Jersey. Dr. Beth Grosshans is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), which offers advice to the public on managing their financial affairs.
From buying groceries to making mortgage payments, financial decisions can lead to stress. According to the APA, these choices require willpower. Research has shown that the stress of making these decisions can reduce your ability to exert your willpower over extra or unnecessary purchases. The APA offers several suggestions for making the most of willpower.
First, spread out your financial decisions - too many back-to-back transactions can overwhelm you. Visiting malls or shopping centers can also be stressful, so stay away from scenarios that tempt you to spend. You can also try leaving your plastic at home and carrying only enough cash for immediate needs.
Another way to bring order to your finances is to have money withdrawn automatically for savings or investments. This can be particularly effective if you have to accumulate a certain balance in order to make a withdrawal.
Finally, keep daily records of your spending and get the support of your family and friends. With these measures in place, you can better rein in your spending.
