  • Ref A Good Start....

    So, as a student I thought I would contribute with links, articles and essays that really helped me start here at SS and enhance my discussion with classmates and professors. It also helped me sort out some of the information I've been taught in class and not take it as the cure all approach to patient care. All of my elementary questions got me referred to these threads/sources. I figured I'd save you the question asking (and low intelligence feeling, at least that's how I felt), and maybe help out.

      Thank you for organizing this Matt, and for learning how to link!
      Such good deeds will not go unnoticed.

        Nor will they go unpunished (ha, ha).

        Matt, you've done a wonderful thing here and if an old guy like me might offer some advice it is this: Do not attach undue significance to your fellow's tendency to avoid using or even attending to this information. Many are wonderfully motivated and well-meaning therapists though they might not possess your passion for change. This doesn't make them bad people or bad therapists - they're just human and trying to stay alive. It's a full time job.

        You, on the other hand, are already dead.

        Congratulations.

          mrupe82,

          Thank you for this! I wish I was so organized...I need to work on that, and on figuring out how that techno stuff (links and stuff) works. Shoot, I'm just happy to have gained personal internet access again so I can look into this stuff more here (had quite a chunk of time away when I was in the middle of the northwoods w/o internet access waiting to find our own home near civilization).

          I don't think what you've posted is just helpful for students, but for exactly what you said, to help get the conversation going (or keep it ongoing) in the spirit of enhancing knowledge. I guess I would consider myself a student even now though, even if I am not in formal school anymore....I didn't gratuate but last May anyway....and can't wait to read through what you have weeded out that I have not yet found/read.

          And just a tip....that low intellegence feeling may stay...I've got a year and a lot of resources as well as some great mentors along the way....but I have not lost that "low intellegence" feeling yet....but, as I try to remind myself, learning has no place for feelings. And to help myself, and maybe help you out, I changed the word intellegence to knowlege and/or exposure, and I do allow myself the "feeling" of excitement and thanks to make up for keeping my feelings out of the learning....gotta let loose a little!

          So, with feeling, thank you!

            ..about that "low intelligence" feeling?
            Ain't ever going away.

            Had it for a few years now, after a boom period of "man, I know everything!" right after school in the 80's.....

            I must admit, this feels more real.

              Bas,

              Thanks for helping me lose all hope.....! Just kiddin'...you are so right about the feeling of being very lacking keeps me searching, and that is real. What you said just gopt me thinking about how it might feel to know everything and think myself so intelligent and knowledgable......scary. Maybe that's not the thing to hope to acheive 'eh?

                  Cory, I concur - perfectly "warm" welcome. Well done Barrett.

                  Isn't it time we name a select group here "The Dead Therapists' Society"?

                    I love it. Been feeling particularly dead lately.

                      Matt. I have been challenging a year's worth of students to sign-on and post to this forum. So far only one has claimed to sign-on with no posts. I think this would be a great avenue for students to access the information here and feel less intimidated to do so.

                      I truly believe the universities are the most fertile grounds for this kind of information seeking. I'm glad you are doing this and will continue to invite students to follow your lead.

                        Thanks so much for posting that. I am not a student, been a PT for awhile but looking for a better way......

                        Much appreciated,

                          Matt maybe we should hire you to make an index for this site. Wiki pages etc.

                            Definitely. Especially as our numbers of dead PTs is growing...

                              Maybe we should have a forum called "Marble Orchard" where we can put the index I'm trying to persuade Matt to create.
                              It could be the final resting place of all the writings of all the 'dead men' people around here..
