Water polo is the only sport that W&J offers that the NCAA does not sponsor a Division Three National Championship. The club level features around 150 men's programs and 85 women's programs, and the Department of Athletics felt that both teams have a strong ch... more.
Michael Crabtree, a W&J professor of psychology, will moderate the Oct. 10 discussion on a topic that, he said, has become the highlight of our community.
Narcan is even in public schools now, Crabtree said Friday. He said a Aug. 23 story in the Washington Post about Washington County and its heroin problem was among the reasons he selected the panel topic. Its that magic bullet drug that brings them out of it, Crabtree said. Crabtree said the heroin problem has resulted in backlash from the community after people discuss addiction as a disease.

Dr. Michael Crabtree, a Washington County psychologist and professor at Washington & Jefferson College, shared similar views with Amaisemeier.
Crabtree has a few suggestions for those who hope to follow through on their resolutions this year. First thing, you have to be really committed and want to make a change, he said. Sometimes people think these resolutions come because they have strong wills. Instead, its putting a habit into place. People have this magical idea (about) internal fortitude, but its really how you commit to a plan. The resolution should also be well-defined and specific. According to Crabtree, saying you just want to lose weight is too vague. Instead, he suggests setting a more well-defined goal, like losing a pound a week. We need to have a specific goal, he said. Besides setting a well-defined resolution, people should also have a plan on how to carry out that goal. For example, those who hope to lose weight, could say that they will reduce their calorie intake at each meal. Or, he continued, you can exercise for a half-hour after every meal. Once a plan is put into place, Crabtree reminds people they should also have a way to measure the outcome of the resolution. If youre not stepping on the scale at regular intervals, he said, youre not sure whether or not if youre making progress toward you goal. (You) have to find something that gives you a measurable goal and track that, he said. Even though some people do not follow through with their New Years resolutions to lose weight, 84 Fitness Valentino said there are some people who do complete their goals. One girl, he recalled, I dont know how much shes lost. Shes changed her body dramatically because of Cross Fit and being honest with herself.
