  • Beware the poison pen- court mandated clients and anonymous review sites

    Nov 20, 2013
    It seems like every day there is a new online review site. While there was a time when you had to elect or even ask to be listed on these sites, nowadays many add you without consent or in most cases without you even being aware that you are on them.

  • Clinicians in transition: Getting started, moving on, starting over…

    Sep 05, 2013
    Sometimes it seems that no matter the clinician, no matter the age and no matter the setting, they are in the process of some kind of transition. The transition can be personal or professional, but it seems that as a group of folks, we are never or at least seldom happy with simply sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the fruit of our hard work and good deeds

  • A message to new clinicians and 2nd year grad students

    Aug 26, 2013
    So, you have either just finished your first year of graduate school and are preparing for your internship or recently graduated with your MA degree and are interviewing for your first “real” clinical position. If you are like most folks you find yourself feeling overwhelmed at times thinking about how you will find placement in a field that has so many in it already who have years more experience than you.

  • On helping clients who have lost focus on the here and now

    Jul 23, 2013
    Sandy* is a lifetime member of the local rod and gun club. She comes from a long line of lifetime members and described herself as being born with a silver shotgun instead of the typical silver spoon. She is very pragmatic, means what she says and says what she means type of gal. She has no time for fancy things, unless it is a new Ford pickup. When you first meet her you see a well built, rugged middle aged woman who obviously works outside for a living; her skin can be described as leather like and wind worn. She holds herself much like a cowboy and most folks who like that sort of style would likely describe her as attractive.
