Ironically enough Felix, just three weeks ago I facilitated a workshop for 20 family carers - these are family members that are caring full time for another family member with profound learning disabilities and mental health problems.

As I entered the room to prepare for the workshop I noticed on the wall a wonderful quote from William James which I then used to introduce the session because it sums up the mind set one needs to have when dealing with patients who may exhibit behavior that challenges us.

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude of mind”

William James 1842 – 1910

I love that!!

Felix Gerena

Great quote, Trevor. James was a very curious and intelligent man, no doubt.
