  • Clinician in Court- a few thoughts

    Dec 06, 2012
    I sit here in my monkey suit, custom tailored, smart tie, long sleeved shirt, calf skin leather shoes, silk tie and suspenders; it can mean only one thing, I am headed to testify as an expert witness in court. Very few things can make me wear long sleeves or a tie for that matter…

  • Clinicians are not competitors: Pillwillop Therapeutic Farm receives open arms and guidance from Spring Lake Ranch.

    Nov 28, 2012
    A few years ago I was at a conference and saw a display table for a program called “Spring Lake Ranch” and met Rachel Stark who was manning the booth and also was in charge of Admissions and Outreach. I found her to be a bit different, unlike others who were simply trying to sell a program. Rachel appeared to not be trying to sell a program so much as she was trying to promote an idea. This intrigued me mainly because it is how I feel about the programs that I developed and direct. Hers is not mainstream to say the least, which really is a shame when you think about it. Nestled on 600 acres of land in Vermont they have developed a true therapeutic community. The program blends ranch work with a therapeutic milieu; a combination of lay people and licensed pros make up the program staff. Clients take part in everything from growing food and animals, to woodwork, syrup making, maintenance etc. they learn how to adapt to life in more productive ways, how to address their issues, increase personal responsibility and self respect and also how to be both interdependent and as independent as possible; a combination that is hard to find.

  • I’m a man. I can change. If I have to. I guess.

    Nov 19, 2012
    Fellow fans of Red Green and the Possum Lodge will recognize this as the Man’s Prayer; that oft cited motto of the fictitious lodge that we have watched for years on PBS that was developed by Steve Smith and became available through the magic of television. Though no longer made, he still tours in a one man show because as he said “retirement stinks.” Reruns still grace our screens and we can buy boxed sets on his website. I think you may even be able to get “Red Green” limited edition duct tape should you so desire. Though let’s face it, duct tape is best when it is found.

  • But I don’t feel 80…

    Nov 05, 2012
    I had a cool thing happen the other day. Someone came up to me and asked me how I felt to be pushing 80; I looked at him with a confused look on my face before he added "you just posted your 79th blog for ACA". He’s a clever one to be sure and proof that at least one person reads my blog, or at least looks at the number of blogs I have written. Hey, I am not too proud and will take what I can get. :O)

  • The return of SILVERGUN! The perils of too much, too soon.

    Oct 22, 2012
    The other day I saw that there was a post on one of my former favorite facebook pages: ( it appeared that a once up and coming band that had hit the local scene hard and amassed a great following quickly only to self implode, was making a comeback almost a year and a half after the infamous posting from the band that read “The artists formally known as SILVERGUN” that had marked the last post from the band until the recently announced concert. Silvergun, the band from Bristol Ct (there are many bands of that same name around the country) started out as a high school group of friends that would jam afterschool doing covers of some of their favorite bands. They had many different sounds those first months but once they selected a name, their sound seemed to coalesce. Covers turned to sets and sets started to include original works, original sounds. They no longer were a bunch of kids jamming; they were a “real” band.
