CEU Event: Plain Old Therapy - A Presentation by Jon G. Allen, Ph.D.

Please join us for a CEU event presented by Jon G. Allen, Ph.D.

Psychotherapists contend with over one thousand different brands of psychotherapy, whereas decades of research indicate that brand differences make a minimal contribution to treatment outcome and relationship qualities make a major contribution. This presentation illustrates a way of integrating science and practice that is compatible with research findings while respecting what most clinicians do.

CALLING MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS TO VOLUNTEER

CALLING MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS TO VOLUNTEER

We are continuing to encourage mental health professionals to give their time at the shelters in Houston. Many of you have already given helpful hands and hours to those neighbors displaced by flooding. Tomorrow afternoon we will be using Lovett as a meet-up spot for our community to leave for NRG, and possibly GRB too.

You can meet at the building, caravan or carpool and enjoy doing service work together with friends and colleagues. Evening and night shifts are the most needed times for MH professionals. If you can join us at the building at 3pm we can have some coffee, and then head out. 

We can try and organize a bit so we have teams with varied skill sets to try and maximize the help we are able to deliver. You all can then leave in small groups to the different locations.  Wear comfortable shoes and clothes and try not to bring lots of belongings with you. Bring a snack and water and join us! Please bring along any new underwear, socks, and shoes you can donate.


For NRG volunteering, sign up at the link below for the 4-12am shift. We know that you may not be able to stay as late as midnight but come for the time you can.
