Of Clinical Interest To All
In this issue, we feature two guest commentators and mutliple videos for you to view. The first is a short, animated video released by the World Heath Orgnization (WHO) entitled "I Had a Black Dog, His Name Was Depression." We invited NJAMFT Member Jay Lapin MSW, ACSW, LCSW, of CENTRA Comprehensive Psychotherapy & Psychiatric Associates in Marlton, NJ to introduce it. You may view the video and intro by clicking here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiCrniLQGYc
Our second item of interest is brought to us by former NJAMFT President Maria Seddio (2009-2010) who was kind enough to share two significant videos: "Beginnings of Dialogic and Collaborative Therapy Practices" and "An Ecology of Mind."

LMFT Rated Among Best Careers

The article also says "By 2020, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts this occupation will grow by 41.2 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations." This is heartening news during difficult economic times and times in which health care providers are feeling the strain of so much change.
