A part of what I do stems from what I have done. I have done child welfare work, wrote training curriculum on communication for the child welfare department in Oklahoma, worked with youth and family service agencies, and for several years worked with persons with developmental disabities (see The Book of Encouragement - a curriculum guide I wrote for teaching life skills and self determination). Also, co-wrote in Colorado that had a five bedroom group home built in Trinidad, CO. I have researched and co-written two books on bullying prevention (The Bullying Prevention Handbook I & II with Solution Tree Press in Bloomington, Indiana). I taught counseling in the graduate schools of the University of South Dakota and Washington State University. In 1995 I co-wrote a grant that established the National Resource Center for Child Development at the University of Oklahoma. In 2002 I wrote a book called Paths of Freedom: A New Theory of Psychotherapy and the Cultivation of the Human Spirit by Phanes Press. I am proud of what I did then and proud of what I am doing now. I still want to make things better.
