  • Putting the community back into community counseling: a blogger reflects on 50

    Feb 22, 2012
    Milestones are important in that they can give us a built in time to reflect, recognize, regroup and plan ahead. The other day I noticed that the ACA blog list of Authors put numbers besides our names that indicates the amount of posts we have submitted. I realized for the first time that I had 50 blogs for the ACA. Ok, so I am a little late as this is actually my 52nd blog for the ACA but a little late is better than never at all; I hope you agree.

  • The latest “war” on religion

    Feb 21, 2012
    Apparently common sense has long since left the building. Hyperbole is the leading story and division is the mantra of many. Civil discourse is often ignored, a dusty tome left on a forgotten library shelf. To speak out against those who are declaring themselves the victims of this war is to be labeled an atheist, communist, socialist, pagan, devil worshiper or some other derogatory thing.

  • The awesome blog!

    Feb 01, 2012

I mean, sometimes I just want to be able to have a cheeseburger without a psychology groupie asking for my autograph, swinging a copy of one of the books I have coauthored/ contributed to or holding one of my many pamphlets while their friends take picture after picture.

And heaven forbid if I go without shaving for a few days, the gossip columns will start rumors about my starting a “hippie psychedelic cult of the Doc” or something…

    Feb 01, 2012
    Before the days of tweets, ipods, zune, cell phones, instant gratification and access to the latest and greatest of everything that is built into a disposable society, life brought simpler pleasures. The walk in the woods that connected gramma and grampy to you, the pleasure of seeing two deer resting in the tall grass, feeling safe even as you drive your old Ford tractor ever closer to their spot on the crest of the hill or the pleasure of popping a few cola cans with your old single shot 22 rifle; some things cost little or nothing but bring back fond feelings, even these many years past.

  • Yogat To Be Kidding Me: A Reluctant Clinician Opens His Horizons...

    Jan 28, 2012
    As a clinician we are not immune to having personal prejudices, preferences and double standards. We may explore options with clients that we would never try personally, either due to personal preferences or religious beliefs; we understand that our clients’ are not us, have a different lifestyle, religion or sexual preference and that they do not come into counseling to learn to be or act like us. Sometimes we may simply feel immune to an issue, or rationalize that though it is an option for others, “it’s just not my thing.” Such thinking can lead us to less than optimal success if we let it.
