Another brief update as I’m taking it easy, trying to get myself over yet another bout of gastroenteritis. (I do not suffer nearly as much as my son does, but it has me struck me down, glued to the couch, not wanting to stand or make any sudden movements.) Anyway… This upcoming weekend I am training with NAMI to become a Provider Educator, that is one of their panel members who teach mental health providers what it is like to live with a mental illness or be a family member of someone living with a mental illness. Since I’ve been licensed in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist (back in the day the license was MFCC for Marriage, Family and Child Counselor) dating back to July 1990, even though I haven’t practiced in over twenty years, I attended the training as a provider (and hopeful future NAMI provider trainer) and received FREE (yahoo! free!) continuing education units (CEUs) towards my license renewal. What a deal! Usually you have to pay for CEUs. You wonder what I’ve done in the last twenty years, if not psychotherapy. Well, heck, go check out my LinkedIn profile.
