I’ve built a section on my website called Knowledge Heals* with resources (books and websites) on a variety of topics related to my work with mental health, chronic disorganization, and hoarding. Colleague Cena Block of Sane Spaces gave it a kind assessment on her own resources page.
A few of the topics listed so far: giftedness, dementia, traumatic brain injury, senior services, and diagnoses such as PTSD, AD/HD, and OCD. There are 17 topic sections as of today.
Each topic has relatively few resources, and that’s intentional. This could easily become overwhelming for readers, so I’m keeping it streamlined. I add items periodically (basically, whenever I read something and think “Ooh! That’s a good one!”), but I’m not blogging about every new entry, so you might want to bookmark and check back now and then.
*Why did I call it that? Psychoeducation is a big part of my theoretical basis as a counselor. I believe that giving people access to information, either by teaching them things I know or by pointing out other resources, supports their innate desire and ability to self-actualize. Or to put it in non-psychobabble terms: Knowing what’s going on is half the battle, so I like to help people figure out what’s going on and then use that knowledge to decide what to do about it.
