  • When the neighborhood kid gets arrested for murder: Say it isn’t so Aaron (Hernandez)

    Jul 01, 2013
    I type this after being bombarded with headlines about Patriots player Aaron Hernandez being arrested for murder and other charges. Before I go any further, in the interest of honesty and ethics, I feel that I should tell you that he was once a neighborhood kid who played in my yard and who paled around with my Kiddo, played videogames and ate his share of pasta. I knew him, I know his mumma and she is a wonderful person and parent as well as a colleague who adores her children. I will not pretend that we are close; it has been years since I have seen him and I am sure neither of us gave it a second thought.

  • Sometimes leadership means having to be looked at as the bad guy

    Jun 17, 2013
    Leadership is something that is often expected of clinical professionals whether or not they are supervisors, directors, owners of private practice or newbies who have just entered the field. Newbies become de facto leaders of their clinical groups, or even viewed as leaders of sorts by their individual clients. Others, as they grow in responsibilities find that they are put in charge of leading whether they want to be or not.

  • Confessions of a closeted introvert

    May 14, 2013
    I was approached recently by a very shy, humble woman who was just starting out on her career as a counselor.

As we talked she told me that she had read some of the text books that I contributed to and followed my blogs. It is always humbling to know that there are even a few folks who take the time to read even one item that I have crafted.

  • Is it an ethical dilemma or are you missing the main point?

    Apr 16, 2013
    “Papa, what does dilemma mean?” “Well Suzie, a dilemma is when you have two or more choices to make; each one has its own merits and its own reasons not to choose it. It is complicated and confusing as to what is the best choice but you can only make one.” “For instance, the other day down at the store I had a dilemma. I was working alone, Liam, my partner, was away when this lady came in to pay off her account. I took the money and put it in the cigar box so I could record it later. When I got back to it I noticed that she overpaid me by fifty dollars. I had a real dilemma on my hands.” You did Papa? What was it?” “Well Suzie, I had to decide if I should keep the whole fifty or split it with Liam.” *

  • Overcoming abuse; an update on Helen

    Apr 09, 2013
    Those who read this blog regularly know that Helen is one of the mascots here at Community Counseling of Central CT. Inc. and at our partially open (still under construction) Pillwillop Therapeutic Farm.
