    #39 - Panel - Some Pioneers of Wilderness Therapy Field Guiding

    This interview was initially shot as a video but I have been unable to find a good system for posting as a video. It doesn't matter, the content is there and it's good. Derek Daley, Jeremy McGeorge, Jillian Broeckert, and Mike Petree have a wealth of knowledge and shared interesting and fun insights into Wilderness Adventure Therapy and how much it has changed through the years. For people who are unfamiliar with the work we do, this will be a helpful history of the development of field guiding and best practices.

    #38 - Sanford Shapiro - Exploring the facts and the myths around ADD and ADHD.

    This is my second episode with Sanford. He's a lot of fun to talk to and has great insight into many issues. Sanford is a learning disabilities specialist who is a highly sought after trainer and speaker, noted for his ability to bridge gaps between therapy and cognitive science. He is the author of two children's books, A Light Within and A Light Within My Dyslexia. I always learn something important every time I talk with Sanford.
