If your group or organization is interested in this public education program, use the form below.
If you are considering inviting me to speak to your group or organization, you probably would like to know a little about me. I graduatedin 1966 from the University of Vermont with a B.S. in Education, taught sixth grade language arts and social studies for two years in Glastonbury, CT, experienced depression and hospitalization in 1968, a year after the death of my father, abandoned teaching, learned how to laugh again while working in a general hospital kitchen (2 years), served as secretary/admin. assistant to two non-profit organizations for 13 years each (the Mental Health Association of Connecticut and the Connecticut Pharmacists Association), worked as a temp while living in Maryland 3 ½years to help family, and then, in 2006, returned to CT. Now retired, I hope to promote the ideas and type of practices that regularly enrich my life.
Many of us have participated in social interactions where people take turns listening to one another for a mutually agreed upon, equal length of time. Some of us are introduced to this simple type of format by a peer counseling or self-help program.
Whatever the source of our experience with this format, a few of us find it downright liberating. Democracy in the fullest sense--with every mind receiving time to investigate each nook and cranny of thought, emotion, and idea.
If you have used the equal-time format to explore and examine your thinking :
(1) what do (did) you like about the format? (2) what do (did) you dislike about the format? (3) did you have any particularly memorable experiences with it, pleasurable or distressing? (4) any thoughts, ideas, opinions, suggestions you wish to share?
