This page contains references pertaining to published blog posts and articles contained on my website. You may notice that I do not typically include citations within the text of my writing unless I am directly quoting sources. I have done this for readability sake and because I’m not trying to publish in a scholarly journal, so I figure no one Is really going to give much of a hoot.
I do feel that in today’s Information Age it’s important I provide a modicum amount of credibility to my assertions and the information I am passing along. Passing Along is perhaps a good way to describe what I am doing here because the simplest claims I make are possible due to the mountains of work others in the field of Psychology climbed. I add to this my own experiences working in the field of mental health. Thank you for reading.
*Formatting for citations is admitetly a little jumbled. As I pull from many sources and as those sources tend to format their citations differently, I make mistakes in my attempts at uniformity. The basic format is: Author, Title, Publication.
