Raymond Adams will speaks about his experience in social work with hundreds of people in crisis situations. Episodes of crisis in our lives are inevitable and people with poor self-care skills are particularly prone to frequent trouble. Ray will propose that we all need to learn to treat ourselves in a kind and gentle manner and that caring for others is difficult, if not impossible, unless we learn to care for ourselves first.
Raymond Adams is a retired social worker with 30 years of experience in medical and psychiatric hospitals, children’s agencies and with the elderly. He received his degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University. He was a Peace Corps volunteer in India. Recently, Ray began facilitating Ethical Mindfulness Meditation on Tuesday mornings at 9 a.m. in the Leader’s office.
