Will I See You Sunstone Summer Symposium 2016?

My first Mormon cultural blog article was title  “The Costs of Misunderstanding Modesty” (published on Meridian Magazine website). The response to the article was so positive that I continued to share my perspective writing a dozen or so articles and a few podcasts on Mormonism  published on a handful of different websites (including this blog).

These topics are informed by my doctoral studies in systems theory, cybernetics, and creative transformation and their application to Mormon cultural transformation.Even though I’ve been working with Latter-day Saint clients for over 20 years, and my first book, The Burnout Cure, was written for LDS women, it was less than a year ago I started blogging about the intersection of Mormon culture and emotional health.

Clearly, we have a real cultural problem to address, and there’s certainly reason to be concerned. Read more
