www.transitions-counseling.com : Where Your Help Begins OnlineSM

An extension of my Self Help Articles Page, this is a table of contents with hyperlinks to an ongoing series of articles I have published in the Lincoln Times-News (Some articles were edited for brevity and/or content, or serialized, in the Lincoln Times-News.   In such cases, these online versions are the original full-length content). The articles are on self help, inspirational and consciousness-raising themes.  This page will be under continuous construction, so you can return here to look for new articles.

UPDATE: As of August, I am no longer doing a regular column with the Lincoln Times-News.  The Editor left the paper and my column was one of the "cuts" as this publication moves back to a more conservative posture. I plan to add articles I publish in other venues, when possible.

Mental Health and the World Community

NOTE:   There is controversy with regard to the war and the idea of counselors not presenting a bias in work with clients.  However, my wartime and life experiences drive me to address the impact of war in terms of offering healing intervention at the world community level. Please be advised, my war experience significantly impacts my perception and judgment in these matters.
