Westside Notes

“People rarely succeed unless they
have fun in what they are doing.”

                        — Dale Carnegie

Welcome to the Summer edition of Westside Notes. Summertime — and the living is easy. These lyrics keep finding their way back into my head so I felt they deserved some attention. After tasting the ease of summer while relaxing with friends in the local mountains outside of Seattle recently, I'm reminded once again to slow down, simplify and balance the fast-paced rhythm of life here in Los Angeles.

Article of the Month
The Tools of Coaching:
Seeing Our Clients Through A Fresh Lens

This month my article entitled, The Tools of Coaching: Seeing Our Clients Through A Fresh Lens, is featured in the California Society for Clinical Social Work's Clinical Update. I was asked to write a piece contrasting clinical social work with coaching which was a really fun way for me to explore my roots as a social worker and reflect upon the natural synergy between the two different hats that I wear.

It was June of 1991. Another picturesque Spring day in the quad across from the UCLA School of Social Welfare — the commencement of a transformative process spurred on by two very full years of social work training, and now it was time to share these tools with the world. As a result of social work school, two primary concepts continue to stand out for me above all the rest: self-determination and person-in-situation.

Resource of the Month
Life Adjustment Team

The Life Adjustment Team was developed in 1977 to provide clients with the necessary structure, support, and resources for learning the skills essential for stability and successful re-integration into the community. Over the past twenty-five years this approach has proven to be instrumental in significantly reducing or eliminating the need for repeated psychiatric hospitalizations. The Team believes that each client requires an individualized, goal-specific treatment plan, and they provide home-based case management as well as life skills training.

Please visit their comprehensive website at www.lifeadjustmentteam.com.

May the rest of your summer bring ease, fun and rejuvenation, and if you prefer not to receive future mailings, simply unsubscribe below and I look forward to connecting in other ways.
