  • 3 cookies on the pie shelf- how little things can make a lasting impression

    Feb 04, 2013
    Up the street from me lived two elderly folks, a happily married man and wife. I don’t remember their names and in fact am not sure that I ever knew them in the first place but I remember them fondly. They were always dressed to a tee and acted proper. I recall seeing their newspapers by the road for trash pickup (years before recycling was heard of), how they were neatly folded and stacked and tied from all sides. I remember how he in bow tie and she in her Sunday finest would walk out of their nice but modest home, which was always picture perfect and he holding the car door open for her as she entered the car, then gently closing it for her before they set out on their ride. Time slowed down for them, the speed limit was in full force and never exceeded. They would drive to the market for supplies, one bag at a time, perhaps so they could have an excuse to get out together.

    As clinicians we undoubtedly do everything we can to help our clients. Many times this help comes in the form of “traditional” talk therapy and related interventions but there are times when behavioral interventions alone will not do the job.

Go ahead, I can wait (Looking at my Ingraham pocket watch that was made right here in Bristol CT back when we didn’t send every job to China)…

  • A year "without a face" - how current situations can bring back painful memories.

    Jan 30, 2013
    Last I checked we are all humans, sure we are highly trained and highly skilled humans but no amount of formal education, certifications and licensure can take the human out of human service providers. Though we know how to work through our issues and seek the assistance of other clinical professionals as needed, there are times when well buried or long forgotten issues can be triggered by a client, situation or event. How we deal with those issues can make or break us as clinical professionals. It can also help us better understand our client’s reactions to things as well, should we look at and understand our own reactions.
