Association for Applied & Therapeutic Humor Announces April 2018 Conference on Resilience!

The Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor (AATH) is non-profit, member driven, international community of humor and laughter professionals and enthusiasts. Formed in 1987 by Registered Nurse, Alison L. Crane, AATH provides its members the education, cutting-edge resources, and supportive community they need to excel in the practice and promotion of healthy humor.

This organization is and has been on my radar because improv and humor are shared interests.  I love the work they are doing!  If you are interested to learn more there is lots of great stuff on the AATH.org website.

They are holding their 28th annual conference in San Diego, CA this year and it is entitled:

Resilience: Harnessing the Power of Humor!

Doesn’t it sound great?

Interview with Forensic Psychiatrist, Dr. Bandy Lee about DUTY TO WARN Movement & President Trump

In this 2-part interview with investigative reporter, Amy Goodman of Democracy NOW, Dr. Lee explains mental health concerns, serious ones, regarding President Donald Trump.

Each video is about 20 minutes and I highly recommend both to consumers and healthcare professionals.  She is grounded, astute, and compelling.  As healthcare professionals, (IMHO) regardless of which party you support, it is worth understanding this expert perspective.

“The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump”: Psychiatrist Dr. Bandy Lee on Growing Mental Health Concerns

“There are Thousands of Us”: Mental Health Professionals Warn of Trump’s Increasing Instability

The National Coalition of Concerned Mental Health Professionals NCCMHP is a group who came together after a Yale ethics conference spearheaded by Dr. Lee and which led to the instant bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.

We seek to alert lawmakers and the public to the dangerousness of the current president before an irreversible national or international crisis occurs. -NCCMHP

In my opinion, President Trump is dangerous and has been all along.
