"Three Words for the Critic in Your Head" and "Instructions for a Bad Day Video" [Kathryn Brooks]

"Requiem for a Therapist: A Tribute to Robin Williams" [Andy Carey]

"The Power of Sandplay" [Marcy Douglass]



"Journal of Bhutan Studies, Volume 26, Summer 2012" [Kurt Kraus]

Everyone, this article by Wangmo and Valk (2012) taught me lots about the Kingdom of Bhutan – a place that has become important to me for lots of reasons. I think, if you are interested enough to read this piece, it may give you sense of why I find it a captivating land. I’d be interested, if you wish, that you share your thoughts or impressions with me. E-mail me at . . . . As I will be writing a great deal about the intersection of Buddhism, Bhutan, Gross National Happiness, and Counseling while I’m in Bhutan next winter (spring and summer semesters), let me know if I can quote your thoughts (APA, personal communication) – I’m always intrigued by what others see when introduced to some of the cultural directions of this little nation hidden in the Himalayas. Enjoy.



"White Priviledge: Unpacking the Invisible Backpack" and "What My Bike Taught Me About White Priviledge" [Matthew Shupp]



"E-Cigarettes Under Fire" [Todd Whitman]

I'm intrigued by the dilemma of E-cigarettes as a way to reduce tobacco-related deaths but at the cost of having a new generation of mostly younger people become addicted to nicotine, in addition to as of yet unknown health risks associated with E-cigs. This link on WebMD showcases some of these discussions and provides good background knowledge about E-cigs and "vaping."
