Introducing the Shorehaven Blog: Therapy Gems and Clinical News You Can Use

Welcome to our new Shorehaven blog.

We will post articles, announcements, and news.

Some of the posts will be intended for the public. We will post news and ideas of use and interest to our clients, to families, and to anyone with an interest in metal health, family health, and substance abuse care.

Much of the material will be for mental health professionals.  Amongst other articles, the Shorehaven blog will include short articles about psychotherapy.  Collectively, we will call these copyrighted articles Therapy Gems.  We will also have some short articles called Clinical News You Can Use.  In many cases, we will write a public and a professional article on the same topic so the ideas can be enjoyed by both of our audiences.

We also invite clinical staff and readers to contribute suggestions for topics.

Therapy Gems will be articles about topics which come up frequently in psychotherapy and clinical supervision, such as the use of language, the delivery of an intervention, how to think about the therapist’s words and their impact, and numerous other topics of interest to therapists.

Clinical News You Can Use will be short articles drawn from recent research findings and which therapists should integrate into practice.

The four-person clinical supervision staff at Shorehaven has over 100 years of clinical experience.

We have asked the supervisors to contribute short articles for professionals which meet these criteria:

  • Suggestions for improving skills for newer therapists
  • General clinical suggestions
  • Summaries of important clinical phenomena
  • Recent news in the field

Most of the Therapy Gems will be didactic articles with important pointers and ideas for therapists in the early years of training.  However, any therapist will benefit from re-thinking some key points or reading reminders about the more rigorous thinking discussed in these Gems.

We hope you enjoy our blog and find the articles to be helpful.
