PPAL Conference 2015

Friday, May 29, is the 2015 PPAL Conference in Marlborough, Massachusetts. Patricia and I will be presenting at a morning workshop. We hope to see you there.

This is a big deal for us. Two important milestones will be occurring. First is that continuing education credits are available for those attending the conference. Somehow this makes us all the more legitimate; maybe even more so than speaking with a class of Psychology majors at UMass Amherst in February. Second is that our talk is being translated into Spanish to make it accessible to more of the conference participants. This should be interesting. We are looking forward to a great day.

I’m Bob

Hi. I’m Bob. I’m the proud father of Patricia, my no longer quite so suicidal daughter who still isn’t dead. Bob isn’t my real name, but then again, neither is Patricia’s. For those of you who know us, we ask that you respect our privacy. Please don’t post our true identities on the Internet. It’s not like we are superheros — we’re more like pack mules with some extra baggage that doesn’t need to be shared with everybody.
