Dear Friends,

We had a great kick off to the new “education year” with presenter Earl Gray giving us a very informative and interesting workshop on Lifestyle Assessment. We also want to thank Vice President Diane Snyder for her mini presentation on the Basics of Adlerian Psychology. We hope to do this periodically to give folks new to Individual Psychology a better understanding of the concepts we talk about every two months. They make so much sense and are so simple yet profound. In fact I just saw a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that is so Adlerian I have to share it with all of you:

“Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.”

With that said I invite you to come see what we can do to be encouraging to kids with an autistic diagnosis in our November program. See details below regarding the presentation.

A reminder that the annual membership fee of $25.00 is due and can be mailed to me or brought to the November gathering. Members are not assessed a fee for CEs and receive the newsletter with an accompanying resource page, discounts on books and more! A membership form is attached to this newsletter.

See you on the 15th and don’t forget to come at little early for coffee, donuts and camaraderie!

Pat Walton-Donalies
President, WPSAP
