  • The therapeutic value of pets, both in therapy and at home

    Jun 22, 2012
    We had Brucie for 11 years, he was healthy American Bulldog until the moment he died while playing; the vet said it was his heart. We had hoped to make him a therapy dog but he was about as calm as Marmaduke and weighed in at 75-80 pounds, a combination that clients just could not deal with so he stayed our pup upstairs in our home and only ventured into the office at night and on weekends. He was so calm when others were not around but once a stranger came they would be tackled and licked until they were totally coated.

  • Avec un mélange

    Jun 12, 2012
    Blowing out the candles on her 40th birthday cake, the glow and flicker sending her back to a time when she was blowing out the candles on her going away cake. She had just finished High School as an honors student and was headed off to college; she was ready to conquer the world. In college she excelled in academics, she seemed to have a knack for all things art and a gifted mind that could do just about anything, but math, she hated math…

  • Seeing your name on an obituary, seeing it on a headstone…

    Jun 05, 2012
    When I was born there were three Warren Corson’s in the same town; my Grampy moved away a few years later leaving two in town and one in Maine. When I was a teen my son was born, making four Warren’s, three of which lived in the same house for about a decade; now there are only two. Grampy died a few years ago, I keep one of the brass bullet cases from his military funeral. My dad passed last September a matter of days before his birthday. He never saw retirement age.

  • Watching your intern become a counselor and then letting them go off into the world…

    May 16, 2012
    I am not sure what your approach is but I personally take very few interns. When I do take one, typically because they pester me to death for an interview and then show a certain spark, a kindred spirit and a fire that engulfs me, I take them in and they become part of the therapeutic family. Like having a child you watch them go through the stages of development. They are uncertain at first, taking each step very cautiously not wanting to let their clients down, not wanting to let them fall. You praise them as much as you can, help guide them into the professional that you know they are capable of becoming and providing constructive feedback as nurturing as possible; typically this feedback surrounds the quality of paperwork. Counselors unlike their social work counterparts typically hate paperwork. Don’t ask me why.

  • Hypocrisy and Pete Rose- an illustrative point.

    May 11, 2012
    Now I cannot say that I really follow baseball nowadays; I tried to on a few brief afternoons off but the sport has become too slow with its allowance of what feels like lifelong ceremonies before each pitch. Adjust, limber up, adjust, strut, and approach home plate, pitch and repeat. By the second batter I was switching to something with more action, like watching paint dry. I am also not a gambler; I never had extra money that I felt I could just as well throw out the window as bet on anything with. Call me old fashioned but I believe in working for a living (not that I am against those who gamble). One thing that strikes me as very hypocritical though is the treatment of Charlie Hustle.
