Treating Ourselves Kindly; Raymond Adams, MS

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.
