    LOUIS C.K.: WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

    Daniel Watter Ph.D., LMFT.

    It is virtually impossible today to turn on the news without encountering a story of a man who has behaved badly sexually. Understandably, the initial response of many of us is to be offended, angry, repulsed, and/or demanding he be punished. However, it concerns me that our reactions can be so swift, punitive and judgmental, especially for those of in the mental health field. Full disclosure: I am a practicing clinical and forensic psychologist, and marriage and family therapist. Every day I evaluate and treat men who have transgressed the line of mainstream sexual behavior. I have personally never evaluated, treated, or even met comedian Louis C.K. though I am a big fan of his work.  To read all of Dr. Watter's article in its entirety, please click here:  Of Clinical Interest to All March 2018

  • LMFT Rated Among Best Careers

    Once again, US News and World Report's annual job rankings shows that Marriage and Family Therapist was rated among the best careers (Top 50) for 2013 (follow link below to view the article). 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.
