How do therapists avoid trying to self-treat their issues that they really can't self-treat?
  • A really important part of being a good therapist is doing your own work and constant self-evaluation. Many therapists have their own therapists. Many also have clinical advisors, consultation groups, or structured clinical staffings where they discuss their work with their clients with other therapists and receive feedback on their interactions.

  • law of adulting: veg spoils 5x faster when ur paying for it
  • I heard advice that you should store your condiments in there and fruits and veggies just go on the regular shelves. They may spoil a bit faster on the shelves, but you'll remember to use them.

    I store a big bag of carrots in my crisper bc they keep so long and I always throw a couple in whatever I'm cooking, but leafy greens, broccoli, etc go on the shelves.

  • When did you know a career was either the perfect or the worst match for your personality?
  • You are mistaken on that one. I'll link this for you again:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_services

    Types:

    Healthcare
    
    Education
    
    Police
    
    Labour Laws
    
    Fire Services
    
    Insurance laws
    
    Food banks
    
    Charitable Organisations
    
    Public housing
    
    Aged Care
    
    Disability Services
    
    Legal aid
    
    Youth Services
    
    Crisis Support Services
    
    Emergency Relief
    
    Public transportation
    

    And for good measure: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_work

  • When did you know a career was either the perfect or the worst match for your personality?
  • No argument from me that many CPS departments have serious issues, but that's CPS, not "social services," which is a term that includes homeless service providers, hospital departments, mental health authorities, housing nonprofits, food banks, and so many more, and I can't believe I'm still trying to communicate this to you since it's clear you're never going to get it.

    A CPS department is a social service, but 99.5% of social services are not CPS. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.

  • DEI is driving big companies to Texas - UnHerd
  • Intensified reporting requirements, higher litigation expenses, costly regulations, overbearing board governance, shareholder activism, heightened public scrutiny and the pressure of quarterly earnings have driven companies away from public markets.

    Then:

    This seems to be yet another chapter in the ongoing saga by which the cultural and economic dominance of blue-state institutions diminishes as progressives undermine their own position through a combination of overreach, arrogance, naivete and myopia.

    Lmao a logical conclusion. Certainly not a political opinion in search of an argument lol

  • I have something against someone saying "social services in the entire US are a nightmare" when they're basing that on only their experience with their local New York CPS office, and then condescending to me that I'm not familiar with some New York state department district map when I don't live in New York.

    You are not using the term in the institutional sense

    Well let me go tell the nationwide hospital system I used to work for and my county mental health authority they got it wrong lmao.

    I'm sorry you had a bad experience with CPS, but I take away from this conversation that you know absolutely nothing about that it's like to work in any social service organization, and definitely have no grounds to criticize the entire field.

  • When did you know a career was either the perfect or the worst match for your personality?
  • Please share one link describing your "districts." You linked an Erie County site lmao.

    "Social services" describes anyone providing social services in any setting, including child welfare, prisons, schools, hospitals, or any of the thousands of other governmental and non-governmental organizations. "Social work" is a specific education and a regulated and licensed profession that provides some social services in addition to psychotherapy. They aren't the same thing. CPS is one tiny segment of the social services field, which is massive. I'm sorry you had a bad experience with CPS wherever you are, based on your other comment, but your experience is not even slightly representative of the field in the way you portray it to be.

    Scottish Greens’ culture spokesman Mark Ruskell said: “A small £1 charge on the biggest stadium-packing gigs like Taylor Swift at Murrayfield could have a transformative impact on our industry and our culture."

    >The man said while waiting for his rideshare to arrive, he was flagged down by the suspect. Mistakenly thinking it was his rideshare, he got into the front seat without verifying the vehicle or driver information.

    >According to the affidavit, the suspect offered the man a drink from an open container, which he accepted. The man said shortly after taking a drink, he blacked out and had no memory of what occurred for several hours.

    Hole In The Wall dodges closure, secures 20-year lease with $1.6M from city

    The Hole In The Wall music venue has secured a 20-year lease and will remain open to celebrate its 50th anniversary next summer, thanks largely to $1.6 million in assistance from the city’s Iconic Venue Fund.

    Will Tanner, who purchased the club located on the stretch of Guadalupe Street known as The Drag in 2008, signed the new lease agreement – an initial 10-year lease with two five-year extensions – with The Weitzman Group realty firm on Monday. The signing followed 10 months of negotiation and work with staff from the city and the Austin Economic Development Corporation to become the first recipient of city funds allocated to preserve culturally significant music venues.

    Austin’s 27-day streak of consecutive 100° days ties as the longest in recorded history

    [T]emperatures have reached the century mark for 27 days in a row. With records dating back to the 1890s, that ties with 2011 as the longest stretch of triple-digit temperatures ever recorded in Austin.

    The KXAN First Warning Weather team is currently forecasting at least seven more days at or above 100°, which would extend the streak past 30 days.
