  1. Great blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any discussion boards
    that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where
    I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!

  2. We should all celebrate the fact that the NASW is working to educate providers. The Spectrum Project is a wonderful resource!
