The Risky Business Of Risk Management How risk management guidelines can increase risk and decrease clinical effectiveness By Ofer Zur, Ph.D. For another paper on risk management, click here.

Retrieved month/day/year from http://www.zurinstitute.com/riskmanagement.html. This article is part of an online course on Risk Management. This is a great message for our Elders and others interested in transcending and transforming in a society that is indifferent and careless! The Great Space Dimension for Improving the Quality of our Lives Health & Relationships (abstract) by Tarthang Tulku The Great Space Dimension is available to us by “Letting things be.” Requires a total and balanced embrace: 1. Transcend common appearance 2. Appreciating Great Space is that appearance Since we initially engage clients and work with attitudes, contemplation of embracing, transcending and appreciating is the essence of this work. ********************* About our Mind by Tarthang Tulku from Time-Space-Knowledge Series The mind does not do – The mind Allows. The mind is a focus on Great Space, The mind is hard to find when we search for it, for how can we locate a “setting”? By relating to the mind as a doer and effector of change or improvement, we maintain or even tighten its narrow, restrictive focus. By Quietly opening the mind, the hidden element is allowed to present itself on its own. We can deflate even the idea that the ‘self’ has ever come out.

Learning to Learn & Play with Children

This Integrative Health blog will focus on teaching, learning and playing with our children. The key, for me,  is maintaining an open, honest, loving and respectful relationship. Mindfulness is a way to be one with our children and grandchildren as their instincts are clearly tuned in to our interactions--verbally and non-verbally. In this blog I will introduce creative activities that we enjoy. While having fun, we are promoting health, learning and developing skills. Also, I will introduce art, music, dance, martial arts, writing, exercise, biking and other methods for maintaining high levels of consciousness. Mindfulness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We've all heard the adage - "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" -- makes Jill dull as well. Do visit the "Supporting Children to Learn through Play" by the Canadian Child Care Foundation.

This Blog and My HomePage allows me to share some of my favorite integrative practices, policies, methods and activities that I use in my professional practice , in my classes and for self-care. I am very enthusiastic about  including logs related to my professional and personal experiences while being mindful of our social work core values, practice methods/skills, knowledge of human development & behavior,  and of interactions and relationships of our natural and social environments.

Hope you enjoy ...
