Catch up on Events
i realize I have been negligent in keeping my blogs on my website up to date. Over the past month I've written three blogs which have received far more hits than previous blogs. If you go to this link: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/struck-living, you can see all the blogs I've posted on Psychology Today. The two blogs i wrote, one on innovation and one on the challege freshman in college seem to face with regard to mental health have resonated with many.
Just finished a wonderful trip out to Utah Valley State for a series of talks. Unfortunately in the last year there have been 4 suicides at the school. Even in a large school like this (35,000) four deaths strike a severe blow. Luckily, under the leadership of an exceptional woman, JC Graham, the school is healing. JC has also taken a proactive approach to preventing suicide - training over 9,000 people to be alert and steps to take for people who might be in a suicidal state. I met JC last year at the American Assn of Suicidology. Such a kind, loving person, JC has made a tremendous difference at the school.
I have a couple of talks in Dallas in October (Oct 5 at noon for the Texas Association of Addiction Professionals (TAAP) and on Oct 11 for the Women's Council of Dallas County) and a talk at the University of Pennyslvania Bookstore on Oct 13 at 6pm. If you'd like to go to one of the Dallas talks, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. These are not completely open to the public, but I bet if I made a request you could attend. The Penn talk is open to the public.
Will try to be better about keeping this updates. With travel, family commitments and trying to write - my schedule has been overloaded.
Have a great week!
