Can we appreciate them? How can we use them? Can we get close up and allow ourselves to be vulnerable? Shoan reflects on this "Gate of Vulnerability." Without our own share of difficulty and pain, would we be embarking on a path of waking up? That's why the human realm is considered so auspicious, because if you're born in the god realm, life is so good you don't do anything to actually liberate yourself.

Today in How To Scale Commercial Real Estate Podcasts we are joined by Brent Williams. Brent discusses the importance of being a thought leader and how to unlock your potential by doing so.   Brent works and plays in the apartment industry through Multifamily Insiders, the largest online social networking group for apartment professionals. Multifamily Insiders hosts blogs and discussions on a variety of topics, such as apartment marketing, apartment maintenance, resident retention, property management, apartment investment, multifamily development, and apartment jobs.   Through Multifamily Insiders' sister site, Resident Events, the community shares apartment party ideas, to help create a strong sense of community at their properties   [00:00 - 05:53] Opening Segment Brent Williams is the chief insider of the largest online professional network for multi-family professionals and he shares how he got there. He started out as a resident retention program designer but realized that social networking was a better way to connect property managers and residents. He launched a social network for the multifamily industry called  MultifamilyInsiders.com   [05:53 - 11:36] How to Map a Career in Multi-Family Housing Being a part of a local apartment association can be beneficial for both residents and onsite team members. There is a trend of taking certain functions or people offsite to centralized locations or centralizing the task for wor those who work remotely. The multifamily industry is experiencing a lot of turnover and people are looking for ways to make their employment experience more gratifying.   [11:36 - 17:22] LinkedIn New Path to Becoming an Industry Thought Leader The goal of the thought leadership content on the site is to help owners and investors become more successful in their careers The site strives to be open and inclusive, allowing everyone to share their valuable insights Career development is key for those who want to produce thought leadership content, as they need to think through what they are saying and refine it to be as valuable as possible. The biggest key to success in multi-family ownership is networking and building relationships with other experts. It's important to have a timeline and a regular schedule for sharing your knowledge so that you remain consistent and credible. Having a long list of ideas is essential, as is having a system for tracking and organizing them. [17:23 - 21:15] Closing Segment Reach out to Brent Williams Links Below Final Words   -----------------------------------------------------------------------------   Tweetable Quotes:“When we think about thought leadership, People don't wanna follow somebody. Who's a flash in the pan, right? They wanna follow somebody who is with them. Who's growing with them? Who's who that they feel is part of the community? So having that established presence is a huge difference.” - Brent Williams   Connect with Brent Williams by visiting www.multifamilyinsiders.com or joining their community on Linkedin  Connect with me:   I love helping others place money outside of traditional investments that both diversify a strategy and provide solid predictable returns.     Facebook   LinkedIn   Like, subscribe, and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or whatever platform you listen on.  Thank you for tuning in!   Email me → sam@brickeninvestmentgroup.com Want to read the full show notes of the episode? Check it out below: [00:00:00] Brent Williams: In multifamily, a lot of people, they started off , in a very similar spot it's they started off as a leasing consultants. They moved up into management from there. So you'll see people from, Vast majority of C-suites at one point started off as a leasing consultant, right? And we're seeing a breakdown in that chain of chain from one point to the next point. So it was before it was leasing consultants as said property manager regional. So, and now we're seeing a spider web of career growth. Where you don't necessarily have to go in that path. You don't have to go from a sales role, which is more like leasing into more of a management role because you're forced into that cause of the way the industry works. So things are definitely changed in that fron [00:00:56] Sam wilson: Brent Williams is the chief insider of the largest online professional network for multi-family professionals. Brent, welcome to the show. [00:01:03] Brent Williams: Thank you, [00:01:04] Sam wilson: Sam. Glad to be here, man. The pleasure's mine, there are three questions. I ask every guest who comes with the show in 90 seconds or last, can you tell me, where did you start? Where are you now? And how [00:01:11] Brent Williams: did you get there? Yeah, nine seconds could be hard, but yeah, I started in multifamily cuz I actually jumped into multifamily, which is a little different than most people. I usually like stumble into it somehow, but for me I jumped into it. I was a big proponent of resident retention, how to get people to be connected with their communities. So I went with a social network for partner communities when I first jumped in and that failed miserably. And we realized that we were a little too early to the game, as far as. MySpace was the big thing. So we decided to step back and show the industry what social networking was and then how to apply it to their communities. So we launched a social network for the multifamily industry and so that they could share best practices, trends and that sort of thing. And so then we're going to actually circle back around and say, okay, now let's apply that to your communities. But once we launched it, It was amazing. And we got such , a huge turnout that we said, you know what, this isn't where we need to be. So we've been facilitating conversations in multi-family ever since. [00:02:16] Sam wilson: So if you can, and maybe I missed this or maybe I'm just slow, probably both is. Can you tell me in one sentence what it is that you guys do [00:02:25] Brent Williams: today? Yeah. So we have a social network for multifamilies called multifamily insiders.com. It's a lot like, LinkedIn, but for multifamily. Very cool. So yeah, we do the same types of things. People want to share memes. They can do that. People wanna talk about in depth discussions about. How to run properties, how to acquire properties. We handle that as well. It, so outs people sharing knowledge with [00:02:48] Sam wilson: each other. That's really cool. I love that. And so just to get your story clear in my own mind, you had a resident retention program that you were running, and yet said you were early to the game. Yeah. And that's what kind of inspired the idea of, Hey, instead of maybe running resident retention, we should run a networking site for people that are looking to acquire and own multifamily [00:03:11] Brent Williams: properties. Right? So in general, we always hear the story about. , if we can retain this residence, we're gonna save four grand or something like that right. On that turnover cost. Sure. And so if we can, there's a big financial aspect to that. And so I've lived in a lot of apartment communities in the past. And I kept hopping from concession to concession. And I think a lot of people do that because we don't fundamentally have any ties to that property. Right. So if my thought was, well, shoot, if we can establish those ties, if I knew just one person in a fairly deep way, I'd be much more likely to stay. And so I technically actually started another company before that, which was kind of a event planning company. For multifamily. And that was a lot of fun. We through a lot of events, but it wasn't scalable. And so, as like I said, as my space was the big dog and it was social networking was becoming a thing. I thought, well, why don't we apply this concept to apartment communities? But the problem was that I didn't realize that, and this may still be true to some degree, but especially back then, property managers didn't want the residents actually talking to each other. , they have summer parties and that sort of thing. If they're not there like chaperoning, they're terrified of this idea of, talking about, the increase in rents or talking about the car that broke, got broken into those types of things. They don't want those conversations happening sincerely. So they don't really wanna have this open social network where the residents could actually discuss. So. Now that's changed over the years. Cause I think that those conversations are happening regardless. And so it's better to kind of be in charge of that. But back then it was terrifying. So we had to help educate the industry on what social networking was. And that was a pretty big task in itself. Man that's [00:05:06] Sam wilson: that's cool. Tell me, I guess, when it comes to what you guys are doing today, an idea is one thing, getting it launched and scaling, it is an entirely different thing. How did you guys do [00:05:18] Brent Williams: it? A lot of TLC. When you launch a social network, You have to make sure that every single person's question is answered. They need to feel like they're heard. So I spent so much time at the beginning of taking individual questions, sharing them with somebody I knew that might have an answer and saying, will you please take a moment and answer this question. So it was a lot of that in the beginning. But even then people really, at the time there was nothing like it. And so if you wanted to network and. You had to go to the apartment association, which is fine. And I'm a huge proponent of being a part of a local apartment association, but people still wanna do that kind of self serve, knowledge sharing. And so, it was easy that for them on a daily basis to jump on a site and share their ideas , and interact in that way and not necessarily have to wait for the next. To connect with somebody else. [00:06:14] Sam wilson: Absolutely. And I think it's unique to have it focused. I mean, there's lots of, focus or there's lots of groups and things like that. I think you can join around really any industry. But for you to have it specifically, focused around the multi-family industry, how to get involved, how to get started. All those things is really cool. What are some common, I guess, pain points that you feel like people come to you with either they're new or they learn to scale or learn to grow their portfolio. And they say, man, Brent is this something that I can learn from and really sharpen my skills on with your group? So [00:06:46] Brent Williams: I think the biggest, I dunno if it. Pain point as much as where the industry is trending. I think that, and this will apply both from the onsite person all the way up to the owner and how they're positioning their properties. Is this question of centralization. And so, historically with multifamily, you have, a lot of the functions done on site. You have your, your bookkeeping, you have your collections, you have all of these vendor interactions. And some of 'em need to stay on site, but we're seeing more of a trend of. Taking these functions or these people, it could be a mix of both and taking them offsite to a centralized location or centralizing the task if there happen to be remote. So, there doesn't necessarily need to be somebody on site doing collections. They could take that function off fairly easily. So, and what it does is it changes the roles of people who work in the industry. You become either much more specialized in sales on getting new leases or you become much more specialized in the resident experience. And then you have, then from a structural perspective, you have a whole new minutely office, maybe of people who are working in a centralized way to support a whole portfolio of properties. Yeah. [00:08:04] Sam wilson: That's a, that, that is a really interesting shift, certainly we've seen across a variety of industries but this one as well, where a lot of those, and I'm not gonna call 'em lower level tasks, but they're tasks that can be batched across multiple assets, like, oh, okay. Well, you don't have to be on site. Like you said, doing collections and things like that. That's a really cool problem that people solve. Do you guys handle. Like, let's say I came to you and I said, Brent, man, I don't know anything about multifamily and I wanna learn where do I start? [00:08:32] Brent Williams: So I think there's a couple different things. It really depends on, what type of view you're looking for. So, we have a Facebook group called multifamily share space. I think that's, even if. Whether it's somebody coming into the industry or somebody who's been in the industry a long time and they wanna get a pulse on what their teams are thinking that they may not be hearing, going to a place like that. You could hear just unfiltered comments about their pain points with their job or with the industry. It is eye opening to see what struggles that they're facing. I think frankly, every person and I know your audience is probably more higher level, so they should be on there looking and seeing what their teams are probably thinking about. But may not be passing along to upper management to saying here, I'm struggling with, the residents are so much more difficult these days, or the challenge we're facing with, especially when it went through COVID that was, I mean, it was incredibly difficult. We have so many more tasks and function. For the onsite team. Now, granted some of that's going to be changing with centralization, but as of right now, they are asked to juggle so many things. So getting that, that deep view from what people are talking about and complain about, or it's all complaining sometimes it's really positive too. That's really eye opening for a lot of people. Well, on, [00:09:50] Sam wilson: on that note, what are some things, I guess, as you look at these forms and you have access to those, what are some things that you feel like people are con some consistent themes maybe that you're hearing right now that are some risks and, or some opportunities in the multifamily space? [00:10:05] Brent Williams: So I think in general and a lot of our conversations do come from the operations side. So some of that's gonna be a little more heavily leaning towards. But I think it's echoing a lot of the wider market where you have, the great resignation is hitting multifamily, especially hard. So I think we're struggling through that. I think that people want to work towards their passions. And so we're seeing more need for how do you Make the employment experience gratifying, and they don't wanna just get a paycheck anymore. They want to do something that makes it makes a difference. That's always, we always hear that for years, but I feel like it's even more so, right now. So I, I say those are two of the bigger things that are happening at least on, on a lot of the conversations that we're seeing. Well, what [00:10:51] Sam wilson: I, when you say that, what are some things that come to mind as it pertains to opportunity? I think [00:10:57] Brent Williams: one of the sessions that we've been having within a training group is a greater emphasis on career mapping to understand what does that look like going from a to Z? In multifamily, a lot of people, they started off in a very similar spot it's they started off as a leasing consultants. They moved up into management from there. So you'll see people from, Vast majority of C-suites at one point started off as a leasing consultant, right? And we're seeing a breakdown in that chain of chain from one point to the next point. So it was before it was leasing consultants as said property manager regional. So, and now we're seeing a spider web of career growth. Where you don't necessarily have to go in that path. You don't have to go from a sales role, which is more like leasing into more of a management role because you're forced into that cause of the way the industry works. So things are definitely changed in that front [00:11:51] Sam wilson: That's really interesting. And you said you spend time in people inside of your group spend time doing career mapping. [00:11:57] Brent Williams: What does that mean? It's identifying what these skills are for some, an individual and creating a path for them specifically. And I mentioned sales because one of the. The worst way to ruin somebody's career is to go from somebody who is absolutely phenomenal selling and then turning them into a bookkeeper. Right. It doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but that's what we do all the time is we say, okay, you need to move into this next role. And what we're finding is that both on the leasing side, also on the maintenance tech side, We're seeing this progression that grows within the leasing bowl. So you have a leasing, one leasing, two leasing three, and you grow within that same thing with maintenance as well. Giving them those opportunities within their primary skill set. I think it's a [00:12:43] Sam wilson: really cool what you guys are doing is really cool because it, it sounds like you get really into the nitty gritty. It's not just a high level. Hey, here's how to buy apartments. Hey, here's a underwrite and evaluate them. It is really this sounds much more operationally intensive than a lot of other things we see out there. [00:13:02] Brent Williams: So it's really a mix of both, but what, the way our community works is in the same way. As you'd imagine with LinkedIn is driven by the community. Yeah. So what happens is when people want to share in a certain path, Then more people end up sharing that path because people, they tend to follow a bit as far as like, I heard a great idea here and now I'm gonna add my 2 cents in. Right. So my, one of my roles is to make sure that we're expanding our net. We have a lot of owners and investors and trying to show them, Hey, you can be a thought leader in this space and it's gonna add value to your world. Then suddenly we can expand that communication we have, Our site reaches over 200,000, multifamily professionals all across the board over the course of the year. So it's a matter of what people wanna do. Do they wanna be a thought leader and kind of expand from that way? And that sense we're always looking for new voices from the owner's side of the investor side. [00:13:59] Sam wilson: So let's talk about that for a minute. Cause I think this is maybe gonna be the title of the show is something along the lines of, taking someone and having them become an industry thought leader. Where does someone start that has no idea how to share their experiences and share their knowledge with other people? [00:14:17] Brent Williams: Yeah. I think the first thing is that people underestimate what they. And they all, they assume that every, since they know it themselves, that everybody must already know it and I guarantee you, that's not true. Everybody has their own unique perspective. Even if it's something that's widely known, the way they approach it in their own perspective, adding their own background in life and their own background in their career is going to give a different spin to something that people may already know, or it could be completely different. , we went through this when we first started off, we have an open platform. Some people didn't like that because they wanted to say, you need to be vetted in a certain way. Now through our editorial process, we still say we're only going to really push out the most valuable pieces of content. But our theory was that everybody has something worthwhile to share. Even if it's just like once a month, you have something that you think, okay, I need to share this. That's worth sharing and we don't wanna lock people out. I also think that when we think about thought leadership, people underestimate the value of their own career development when they are producing thought leadership pieces, because you have to go through the process of thinking through it, refining it, and really digging into your own knowledge to understand it because you want to be to, you wanna be. As polished and and as valuable to the readers or to the viewers as you can. So that process of becoming a thought leader elevates your game because then you really have to analyze your own thoughts. [00:15:50] Sam wilson: I love the idea that, where you said that people under underestimate or undervalue what it is that, that we know, because it is, it's funny when you start getting, especially into nuanced topics, multifamily ownership. Yeah. It's nuanced and it's like, oh wait, I actually have a great wealth of information here to share. We just don't necessarily. How to bring it out or what to share at the right time. Is there a specific kind of map that you guys use or maybe that even you have used? I mean, cuz again, even your platform itself was kind of a do what you're telling other people to do is just a reiteration of what you've already done here on building this platform. So is yeah. [00:16:27] Brent Williams: I think the biggest thing is to, In your career, everybody must identify where they're gonna place focus and make sure that they make a consistent priority. A lot of people, they will say, Hey, I'm gonna do this and they do it once or twice. And then they kind of lose focus. And so, I think that saying, setting up a timeline saying I'm going to do this on a, this periodic basis and sticking to that because when we think about thought leadership, People don't wanna follow somebody. Who's a flash in the pan, right? They wanna follow somebody who is with them. Who's growing with them. Who's who they feel like is part of the community. So having that established presence is a huge difference. And we have seen this multiple times where people have grown their career, like grown their business by being a constant presence and sharing their knowledge and people start subscribing to them. And then, and it's funny, I hear these stories from them. They're saying I was at the airport and we're going to a conference. There are some people, in, in the same vein in the airport at the same time and they get recognized and go, I love. I love your blogs cause they're amazing. And they made an impact and they're finally seen it firsthand . About how it impacts them. And then the other thing I think is I always have an idea list. And so even if I can't write down that blog or do that video at that moment, I have a long list of things that I have in the queue so that I never have to worry about going through that drought. Right. Cause sometimes I'll have a ton of ideas right. At the same time and other times. Maybe I don't have something to say at that moment, and so always having that log will keep me going. So I always have something to. I [00:18:08] Sam wilson: love that. I certainly love that. And yeah, that's something I try to keep keep myself either on a phone or on a task list or something somewhere where it's like, and I failed this the other day, cuz I had this idea. I'm like, oh man, that's a really, I haven't thought about that. I need to, and I didn't write it down now. I can't tell you what it is. It does happen. Let's talk about best practices for a minute. Tell me what as it pertains to multi-family acquiring, owning, operating, selling. What do you feel like are maybe the top two or three best practices that people need to have in their toolkit right now? [00:18:40] Brent Williams: I think that probably the biggest one and it kind of comes back to the networking side of things. I think that people, sometimes when they start going into investing they kind of, They read a lot, but then they re you know, meeting somebody and talking with them is going to be a wealth of knowledge, much greater than trying to figure things out on their own, building your team and having your, your quality piece at every single spot is going to give you more knowledge than you'd ever need. So I think that the big thing is building our team and built and going to networking events and going networking online and kind of. Finding others that are gonna be the silver spot that have already been through that. So you're not reinventing the wheel, [00:19:17] Sam wilson: man. That's so true. That is so true. Certainly have acquired a lot of assets just by doing exactly. What it is that you talked about right there, going and doing networking, talking to people and team members it's an overlooked, I think Not skillset, but it's just something that, that if you don't do it, then, it's gonna leave a lot of opportunity there on the table that we don't certainly wanna do that. So that's that's really cool. I love that. I love what you guys are doing. I love the way that you guys have plugged in, found a way to niche down into the multifamily space, present training and best practices, opportunities for those that join your group. Just the way that you can share. And like you said, for the most part, I think you said you catch flack for having it too open. Was that right? Something, right. Something to that effect where it's, Hey you're too open, but I really like that certainly. Certainly that's the way we can learn and all grow together. Brent, if our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you or your group, what is the best way to do that? [00:20:09] Brent Williams: So I think there's a couple different ways you can go to multifamily insiders.com, which is our primary site. I think for your listeners though, I would go to the multifamily . Insiders group , on LinkedIn. So every one of our little areas has a different demographic mix. And I think that in general, our LinkedIn group has a lot more of. Owners, investors, brokers, we see a lot of conversations there mm-hmm so I would check that out. We have a company and a group, so make sure to look up the group on LinkedIn called multifamily insiders. [00:20:39] Sam wilson: Fantastic. Brent, thank you again for taking the time to come on the show today. I certainly appreciate it. We'll look forward to connecting again here soon. All [00:20:45] Brent Williams: right.

Quackcast 600 - AI is bad at art

The QuackCast

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 13, 2022 71:55


There's a lot of buzz about so called AI generated art at the moment using programs like Dall-E, Neural blender, Dream studio lite and so on. People use text prompts, i.e. “flying clockwork fish balloon” and the AI generates “art” based upon that. It usually does this by using actual art and photography created by real people, and visually mixing them to create a new image. Some results are much better than others. The main issue with the approach is that the AI like all AI is dumb: it has no awareness, no understanding, it can't think, it can only serve up the most superficial interpretation of the prompt text. 100% of the “meaning” or “art” a viewer sees in that image is their own imagining, this in itself is never a good indication of art. But this also means that the AI has no capacity to understand the visual language it's speaking so it just provides you with a poor facsimile of art, which is all it can ever do due to inherent limitations. For example, ask it to create a pirate image based on certain parameters. All it will be able to do is create a pastiche of already created images on the subject, like a bad deviant art image by a poor artist. A good human artist would think about the subject in terms of the ethnicity of the pirates, the type of vessel they use, how ratty or decorated their clothes are due to their time at sea, the body hair, tattoos, piercings and injuries on the pirates, the time of day and where the light comes from, the style of clothes and weapons due to the period, geography, and culture of the pirates etc. All that means something and will have a significant influence on the image (you can apply this to any other scenario too), while AI can only produce generic pretend art. Unfortunately people don't understand these significant limitations and expect AI to do more than it can, (in all fields, not just art). AI is a useful tool when used correctly and when you properly understand its limitations, but when you don't it creates havoc. Which is why AI assisted systems tend to be so shit- like auto-correct spellcheckers, Google search algorithms, Facebook and Instagram image checkers, YouTube copyright checkers, “smart” chat-bots that big companies use as help systems etc. If we have people mistakenly thinking AI can replace artists or graphic designers, then we're in for a tsunami of boring, generic, meaningless design and the world will be a blander place because of it. Try not to be fooled by the “idea” of art, when you see an AI generated image remember there was no thought behind it, no meaning to the placement of figures, style of clothes, body posture, mistakes etc, and the stylistic choices are simply stolen from human artists. It's a system that specialises in creating pointless parody pastiches.

His was the shortest papacy in modern times. The sudden death of Pope John Paul I, after a pontificate of just 33 days, shocked the world and generated a host of conspiracy theories. As his beatification this weekend takes him one stage closer to becoming a saint, we speak to a man who was invited by the Vatican to investigate his death, John Cornwell, author of ‘A Thief in the Night: Life and Death in the Vatican'. The devastating floods in Pakistan have left millions of people homeless and destroyed buildings, bridges and roads. Vast swathes of the country are now under water. More than a thousand people have died, and more have been injured. Many British Muslims have joined the efforts to provide relief in the country. We hear from the Nottingham based charity, Muslim Hands, which is working in Pakistan, about the help that's needed and how people can offer support. In India, after decades of many unborn girls being aborted, new research suggests the country's sex ratio at birth is beginning to normalise. The Pew Research Center suggests that "son bias" has declined sharply. Edward Stourton asks Professor Jagbir Jhutti-Johal, Professor of Sikh Studies at Birmingham University, why attitudes are changing and daughters are now more often being celebrated. A new book brings together the stories of Christians who feel their disability prevents them from playing a full part in church life. This year's Church of England General Synod unanimously backed a motion committing to the removal of barriers that prevent disabled people from engaging. But personal stories in the book suggest that the problem is not simply with access to church, but with theology too. Producer: Jonathan Hallewell Presenter: Edward Stourton

In this episode we dive into: Our roles in the world and what shapes us. How our societal rules are built to uphold systems of power. The veil that clouds our ability to see the truth. Vast differences in life experience based on proximity to privilege. How good intentions don't justify actions.   Kerri shares that you can start to recalibrate your life around new values based on the truth.  Just being willing to hold the truth and be changed by the truth allows you to see that the “we” is more important than the “I” if we are going to survive and thrive together.  It's about opening to the whole truth in our world and realizing that we have all internalized the teaching of toxic ideas.  By interrogating our actions and thoughts, locating where we are inside of the systems of power and privilege and engaging collectively we can imagine a better world for everyone. Kerri is the founder of CTZNWELL, a movement that is democratizing wellbeing for all. A descendant of generations of firemen and first responders, Kerri has dedicated her life to kicking down doors and fighting for justice. She's been teaching yoga for over 20 years and is known for making waves in the wellness industry by challenging norms, disrupting systems and mobilizing people to act.  Guest Info Connect with Kerri on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kkellyyoga/ Learn more at https://americandetox.co/  Order American Detox.

What Goes in Your Notes? Interstate therapy practice and documentation for clients considering abortion or gender affirming care Curt and Katie chat about documentation and practice questions related to abortion or gender affirming care when providing therapy to folks in states where these types of medical care are banned or will be banned soon. We look at medical documentation privacy concerns (related to HIPAA and the 21st Century Cures Act), how therapists avoid “aiding and abetting” a client to get an abortion, what to include in your notes, and special considerations related to duty to warn and child abuse reporting. This is a law and ethics continuing education podcourse. Transcripts for this episode will be available at mtsgpodcast.com! In this podcast episode we explore post-Roe documentation for therapists We've heard a lot of questions about what therapists should do now that Roe has been overturned. We decided to dig into practice and documentation guidelines to help modern therapists navigate the changing times. Medical documentation privacy concerns with interstate practice and the new abortion bans “Your records aren't as private as you think that they are.”  - Curt Widhalm, LMFT HIPAA and the 21st Century Cures Act The impact on clients who move from safe haven states to states with abortion bans The impact of the Counseling Compact (and similar mental health compacts) and how many participating states have trigger laws to ban or limit abortion Paying attention to jurisdictional differences and where the client lives Who qualifies as a HIPAA covered entity? Psychotherapy (Process) Notes versus Progress Notes Psychotherapy notes are not defined the same and/or protected in every state The impact of civil law suits on confidentiality of process notes The huge challenge of information blocking and who may pass along your treatment information Talk to an attorney or your professional organization when subpoenaed How do you avoid “aiding and abetting” a client to get an abortion during mental health treatment? Processing feelings and helping client to make their own decisions Aiding and abetting can include telling them where to go, encouraging them to get an abortion, or providing practical support (like money or a ride) How to provide resources without aiding and abetting Self-empowerment and clients making their own decisions Liability and risk in practice (check with your malpractice insurance) Whether/how you let your clients know where you stand on the overturn of Roe v Wade What do you include in your notes when talking about abortion and gender affirming care? “You need to give meaningful consideration to what goes in [the mental health] record and you also want to be clear in what you're talking about with your clients. So, that way you're not unintentionally aiding and abetting a client who's living in one of these states where an abortion ban is currently in place.” – Curt Widhalm, LMFT What is relevant to your treatment goals? Documenting progress toward treatment goals Creating a policy related to medical decision-making Phrases that you can use to briefly describe what is happening in session How much to document and the recommendation to be less specific in progress notes when discussing medical decisions The special considerations related to duty to warn and child abuse reporting when talking about abortion and gender affirming care No case law to guide us here The difference between permissive versus required reporting Vast differences across the states with all of the different pieces HIPAA says that we should not report, but we will be impacted by state laws Recommendations to pay attention to what is happening in the states where you practice and to identify advocacy opportunities to protect information, safe haven laws Our Generous Sponsor for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: Thrizer Thrizer is a new modern billing platform for therapists that was built on the belief that therapy should be accessible AND clinicians should earn what they are worth.

This is part of our special series in association with our friends at Writer's Republic. We are highlighting some of the most interested and up-and-coming authors in their community. Stan Kasprzyk has an incredible story of leaving communist Poland to live in capitalist Africa and the amazing adventures that occured. In his own words... I was born in Poland, and three years later, Stalin died in the Kremlin. In my happy childhood, I threw myself into the world's geography. First, I studied countries, their capitals, rivers and mountains, and all objects on the map. My parents bought me atlases. I tended to spread the message of geography and quizzed adults about it. What is the capital of Columbia? I asked, and surprisingly, no one knew. Some were embarrassed, though. Interests in history and maths came later, which led to economics as my serious study and profession. But what kind of economy and economic study can one enjoy in a communist country where Marxist theory is the religion for the masses and leads to a market and social catastrophe similar to what we see in Sri Lanka today? But Poland in the 1970s and 1980s was not a free, neutral island on the Indian Ocean. It remained in a grip created by Stalin. And here we have a narrative arc spanning the first half of my life. To begin the second half, I had to enter my purgatory. It happened to be the Kingdom of Adamawa in the North-eastern corner of Nigeria and the town of Yola. Being a geography maniac, I had nothing against going to Africa for at least two years. Moreover, I adored the idea, so I fully accepted Yola with its rustic beauty and tranquility - except for the bloody days of early March in 1984 (see Maitatsine). The purgatory in Yola was for two years with a chance of extension. With my family, we decided to take the second leap. We went West. I became a software specialist and enjoyed three decades working on absorbing and taxing projects. In retirement, I looked for new frontiers, and the top one was writing the “African” memoir. It took five years to learn the craft and write SUSPENDED IN VAST PLAIN.

Last episode we heard how the Xhosa wardoctor had failed in his attempt at chasing the colonials out of his territory – the Albany region, and now return to significant events in the north east – Zululand. By 1819 Shaka and Dingiswayo were holding sway in an area from the Thukela to the Black Mfolozi in Zululand, but Zwide of the Ndwandwe still controlled the land between the Mfolozi and the Phongola Rivers. The landscape had changed radically over the past three hundred years as farmers cut and burned their way across the rolling hills and mountains. Vast tracts of forest and thornveld had been converted to grassland, altering the land to what it looks like today, although there was more bush around, particularly along the river valleys. But the point is human activity on the landscape had already mutated the veld, and yet there were still elephants around and other wild animals. The region from Phongola to the Thukela was criss-crossed and patched with human influences, scarred and thinned out from the axe-blade, the hoof, and the farm yard. This was a century before colonials arrived to farm the area. But the people of this land lived with and through nature in a manner that changed with the coming of commercial farming and the heavy use of firearms. Everything depended on the leaders' capacity to feed and feed off cattle, wildlife and crops. The vegetation and terrain were paramount to everyone's lives, the ideology and military system and marriage rituals were all shackled to the most important thing – the ability to generate enough food. We also hear about Sambela of the Mkhize who is described as an albino, and was quite small but made up for what were seen as deficiencies by his compatriots by being particularly wild and was feared as a fighter. There seems to have been something unhinged about Sambela, when he had his first teenage emission which indicates a boy has turned into a man, we would call this a wet dream I guess, he headed off with a gang of Mkhize youths and killed and ate 20 goats. Stories abound of this man breaking things, throwing around the pottery, and was called Uhlanya – ungovernable.

Oregon's revolutionary system for managing growth has done a lot of what its creators envisioned. Vast parts of the state remain pristine, and even suburban communities feel more urban – more walkable and environmentally friendly – than in other states. But the rules that have kept Oregon so special have also led to many of the land use fights we're waging today – political battles over how dense town and cities should be, how much of an influence tight growth laws have on housing prices and where all these people moving into Oregon over the next half century are going to live and work. In the final part of this special OPB Politics Now series, senior political reporter Jeff Mapes shows us how the quality of life debates of the 1960s and ‘70s led to the different, but no less heated, debates over how we live today.

Summary Bill Parquette (LinkedIn; Website) joins Andrew (Twitter; LinkedIn) to discuss Denial and Deception. They discuss examples such as D-Day, the Yom Kippur War, and the Persian Gulf War. What You'll Learn Intelligence Denial and deception – what it is and why it matters Key examples of denial and deception Detecting denial and deception operations How to avoid seeing monsters everywhere Reflections How to counter denial and deception in everyday life (children, salespeople, etc.)  Stumbling into new roles in new fields And much, much more… Episode Notes Sun Tzu said, “all warfare is based on deception” and so much of the natural world is also based on denial and deception: camouflage, feigning, mimicry, distraction. It is also a feature of our daily 21st century lives: spyware, trojan horses, catfishing, and spear phishing. With this week's guest we look at the Denial and Deception Committee, which aimed to discover and mitigate foreign denial and deception operations against the U.S. by coordinating efforts throughout the IC. Bill Parquette was a former Chair of the Committee. He joined the Committee in 2002 and left in 2015. He was formerly a Lt. Col. In the U.S. Army, starting his career with 10 years in the 82nd Airborne, and is currently Professor of Practice at Penn State University.  And… The episode looks at deceiving others but the human capacity for self-deception and denial is VAST – from head in the sand, plugging your ears, living in denial, willful ignorance, and cognitive dissonance through to doublethink.  Quote of the Week "If I have an audience of one or 100, I ask does anyone have children? And the hands get raised. And then I said, okay, did you teach your child deception or denial? And of course not. Do they conduct denial or deception? And they all said yeah, it's throughout nature, it's throughout society…it's a natural thing to deny.
