Drug Court Opens and How Social Media Affects Teens

I am so happy to announce that we have just opened the drug court in Worcester and I am proud to be part of the team. It is an exceptional development and all parties involved have come together for the common good. I am happy to have played a small role in that, in the second biggest city in New England. In addition, I want to send out a request to all my colleagues who work in schools or know people in school systems who are willing to have me and a talented blogger, Alexa Curtis, come in and talk about responsible use of social media and how it has affected the mental health of today’s teens. I can be reached here, via the email address above or call me directly.

Talkspace Is Not The Future of Therapy…

This is my Vlog for the week. It was influenced heavily by my attendance at the Talkspace Conference this week in New York.

When I hear criticism about Talkspace, I understand the concerns. I also note that people are scared of a new form of therapy that disrupts the current ideology and establishment. CBT, EMDR, DBT, and other forms of therapy also disrupted the establishment. They worked out OK.

Being able to reach people who would have never reached out in face to face and helping people get support on a daily basis is key for recovery as well as healing. You can’t disrupt the system without ruffling a few feathers.

Hope you get a chance to check it out and offer it to others who may need it.  If you want to refer directly to me, click here for my link .
