My name is Dr. Dan Rosin and I am delighted you have chosen to view my website. I have been a teacher, therapist and consultant for 50 years. The majority of that time was spent counselling burned out, over worked, under empowered and extremely distressed people. As well, I have been promoting the concepts of wellness and prevention through workshops, presentations, a newly developed wellness model and written articles and books.
Newsletter Vol. # 53 That's how I see it!
I am just back from a very fast trip to the US, Grand Forks to be exact. I spent last Saturday, attending a UND Homecoming breakfast- it has been 50 years since I graduated from that fine university. I walked the campus and visited some old buildings where I took classes. I also visited some of the places I stayed when I lived off campus. I felt sad that 50 years had passed so quickly and I wasn't that young cocky kid anymore. The students all looked to be 12 and I most definitely was out of place at our old drinking establishments.
FAMILY OF ORIGIN AND WELLNESS
There is a widespread belief that if a person can be convinced, allowed, or helped to express his feelings, he will in some way benefit from it. The belief that to discharge one's feelings is beneficial is also prevalent among the general public. Friends are encouraged to 'get it off their chests,' helped to 'blow off steam,' or to 'let it all hang out.' Sports or strenuous physical activities are lauded as a means of 'working off' feelings, particularly hostility, and it is accepted that there is some value in hitting, throwing, or breaking something when frustrated.
Here is what a reader expressed in comparing the summer Mid-Week newsletter and the That's how I see it! newsletter:
"I much prefer your new Mid-Week concept to your other blog. The Mid-Week is focused on your experience and knowledge, the other blog seems to be random thoughts with no cohesion, or connection to your message.
That's just the way I see it!!!"
Thank you so much for your opinion. Now which way to go? Do you have an opinion? Let me hear from you. Until I get enough feedback, I think I will share with you something I wrote (and some will stop reading at this point), and then I'll add other, what I consider interesting, articles and bits.
Hello and welcome to the 50th edition (2016) of That's how I see it!
We have had a great summer-lots of golf, summer theatre, grandkids over for weekends, the highlight was when we celebrated our 50th anniversary (people came from all over to celebrate with us), it was a glorious 3 days.
People have all gone home, the leaves are falling in abundance, it's dark by 7 pm, and there is a tension to finish all the "summer jobs" around the house. Fall is here-lets enjoy it before...
