  • Final Services Are For The Family, Not The Deceased

    Sep 26, 2011
    I want to thank everyone who has shown me support over the loss of my father. I have been really touched by the support I have received on my blog and via email. Sometimes as a blogger or a small practice professional it is hard to gauge is anyone notices you or pays attention to your work. The ACA family has shown me that it is indeed a family and a supportive one at that.

  • The Man Behind The Mask

    Sep 26, 2011
    We all know that all work and no play not only leads to a dull life but can also lead to many health issues as well. Trust me, I learned that first hand and do not recommend it. Coming back from the abyss can really be a wakeup call; the question remains whether or not to pick up the line. I decided that now that I am feeling much better (hoping for 100% soon) that it was time for me to reduce my work hours to no more than 70 per week, including farm related work (I have a plan to further reduce it eventually down to 50) and to start doing things that I once enjoyed but had stopped due to having worked up to and sometimes exceeding 110 hours a week (it’s no wonder I got sick after 5 years of that schedule). Then it occurred to me that I had no real idea as to what I enjoyed anymore since it had been so long. Like any good addict in new recovery (workaholic in my case) I found myself emotionally stunted to about the time when my addiction took over.

  • People over profits: how hyperbolic rhetoric is winning the war on health care

    Sep 22, 2011
    Though I try to avoid anything political in my blog and in my personal life and few would argue that health care has become a major political hot button issue these past few years, I feel the need to share some frustrations, one clinician to others. This sharing will not be a red versus blue or “us versus them” type of thing, but more a sharing of some weird and unsettling observations. Hopefully someone reading this will be able to help me better understand the “grand scheme of things” when it comes to insurance.

  • A Time To Reflect: a Counselor Grieves

    Sep 12, 2011
    I write this blog moments after receiving an email telling me that my father, Warren Corson II, passed away over night. I was checking my email between sessions as I always do and must say that I never expected this. After closing the office and feeling numb I decided to write in hopes that it may benefit others.

  • Do Clinicians Get "Empty Nest Syndrome" When Their Clients Leave?

    Sep 07, 2011
    I recently experienced something that I had not experienced since I opened my practice several years ago; several open session slots. This was not due to the economy or because my clients just stopped coming to treatment, it was due to the fact that several clients were heading off to faraway places to attend college. Some of these clients had been with me for a few years and in a sense became fixtures in the office. I mean, sure they improved and as a result came to sessions less and less based on need, but for the most part not a month had gone by since they entered treatment that they did not have at least one session. Some of them left an impact either by being extra nice to staff or by going out of their way to pet our mascot Ophie (short for Ophelia of Shakespeare fame) or a number of other things. A few left an impact because of just how far they had progressed from when they first entered the waiting room.
