October 2017, Volume 6, Issue 10

Happy October, SynerLINK Community Members,

This month, I’d like to take a closer look at telemedicine, which is a key cornerstone of my practice. I’m thrilled to have been invited to speak about telemedicine at the Mental Health Coalition of Verde Valley’s upcoming Mental Health Summit 2017, on October 13th, alongside such luminaries as Dr. Leslie Korn, PhD. The theme is “Innovation, Technology and the Future of Mental Health Therapy”. If you live near Camp Verde, AZ, I encourage you to attend. http://mentalhealthcoalitionvv.org/event/mental-health-summit-2017/

If you’d like a sneak peak of what I’ll be talking about, our first link of the month is to the final video of my recent Functional in Five talk at the Evolution of Medicine, complete with subtitles and fancy edits. Enjoy!

Our second link of the month is to the final version of our published research article in the Journal of Technology in Behavioral Science, which just went to press recently.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH
“If we want to live a wholehearted life, we have to become intentional about cultivating rest and play, and we must work to let go of exhaustion as a status symbol and productivity as self worth.”
