Design for System Success - A Review of Donald Norman's The Design of Everyday Things:
Teamwork is one of the key design criteria for medical practice management systems. Donald Norman, a cognitive scientist and author of "The Design of Everyday Things," pays tremendous attention to the psychology of the mind, to how our mind works, and develops a pragmatic set of four basic design principles.
Sex, Sexuality, and Therapeutic Practice:
Human sexuality is a complex and controversial issue that is often ignored during therapy and clinical training.

Being Genuine - A Book Review:
Being Genuine is simply stated, one of the best books I have read all year. It very clearly and effectively conveys a process for communicating with others in a genuine and non-judgmental way. Thomas D'Ansembourg is a student of Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication Process but rather than simply restating Rosenberg's principles, he enhances and adds a new dimension to non-violent communication based on his experience as a psychotherapist and youth counselor.
How to Make Change - A Positive Experience:

Book Review: Why Mars and Venus Collide by John Gray, PhD:
Recently I've read the book, Why Mars and Venus Collide, Improving Relationships by Understanding How Men and Women Cope Differently with Stress by John Gray, Ph.D. I absolutely loved the book!
