Let me pick up from where I left off two blogs ago and update you on the rest of the conference in Kalamazoo.  I've been getting carried away with meeting so many amazing people that I've not kept up with my blogs.  Joanna (our daughter) tells me that she's waiting eag...

You might wonder why I have chosen to start my USA travels in Michigan.  Well... this is the birthplace of parent-infant psychotherapy (PIP).  Actually, to be more precise... PIP was birthed out of a sharing of knowledge between the UK and the USA... a bit like what I'...

Day 8 - Saturday 12th November 2016

Day 4 in Sweden...

My adventure continues despite the first heavy snow of the season.  It feels like Christmas in Scandinavia and I'm loving every moment.
