New center offers free PTSD treatment to veterans

first_imgThe Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at USC opened its doors Wednesday to post-9/11 veterans and their families seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions. The clinic arose from a $15.7 million donation by Steven A. Cohen, CEO of Point72 Asset Management, through his foundation, the Cohen Veterans Network. This family clinic, located on Flower Street, is a collaboration between Cohen’s foundation, the USC School of Social Work, and the Keck School of Medicine of USC.Out of the 2.6 million post-9/11 veterans, 40 percent do not access the healthcare available to them, and 20 percent experience post-traumatic stress, according to Veterans and PTSD. It’s the hope of the clinic, Arnett said, to reverse that trend by using innovative technology, social support and community interaction to help both veterans and their families continue on with their lives. One of the goals of the clinic, according to director Kathryn Arnett, is to go above and beyond therapy sessions and provide veterans with the tools they need to transition into civilian life. “The kind of services veterans seek are not just a 15-minute behavioral health session,” Arnett said. “They’re looking for things like housing and social support and resources and how to access those resources.” The Cohen Military Clinic integrates family care with veteran care because children, partners and close friends are also negatively impacted by a service member’s post-traumatic stress. “What makes us different is that we provide care for families of service members,” Arnett said. For many veterans, getting to a clinic isn’t feasible because of distance or disability, so the Cohen Military Clinic plans to create satellite clinics in order to provide veterans with the care they need without having to leave their homes. One of Arnett’s goals for the future of the clinic is to bring holistic care to veterans throughout California, not just those around the USC location.“The most important goal is that we meet veterans where they are,” Arnett said. “Our outreach team is already out in the community working with veterans side by side, letting them know what our services are and how we can help.”Arnett said that a highlight of the Cohen Military Clinic is its care for veterans who are not covered by the U.S. Veterans Association, including those who served in the National Guard or Reserves. “We work with veterans that have an other than honorable discharge,” Arnett said. “We also have a very robust tele-mental health program.”In addition to hosting the Cohen Military Clinic, the School of Social Work has trained 1,300 students in military social work, and the USC Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans and Military Families is providing the community with evidence-based care. The $15.7 million donation by the Cohen Foundation is part of a larger donation of $275 million to create the Cohen Veterans Network, launched in April 2016, that will provide care to veterans across the country at 25 clinics. USC is the third clinic to open. There are four other clinics open in Texas and Pennsylvania.last_img read more

Argentina, Chile stumble again, Uruguay on brink

first_img– ‘We must fight’ –In Buenos Aires, Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli admitted his team had blown a golden opportunity to force themselves into the automatic qualifying places following Chile’s defeat earlier in the day.Sampaoli blamed poor first-half finishing for his side’s failure to take all three points against the Venezuelans.“We have two games left against Peru and Ecuador and we need to win both of them,” Sampaoli said. “We had three chances to score in the first half and everything could have been settled.”“We must continue to fight in attack and give strength to the players.”Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi echoed Sampaoli’s sentiments after watching his side slide to a dispiriting loss in La Paz. “We will fight, we will make the greatest effort possible, we believe that we have the ability to compete with the best and we will try to obtain the results that allow us to qualify,” said Pizzi.Although Chile have a difficult run-in against Ecuador and Brazil, Pizzi said his side had not lost hope.“There are two matches left, I’m going to fight and my players are going to fight, with all the force we have,” Pizzi said. Share on: WhatsApp Messi in action on Tuesday.Montevideo, Uruguay | AFP | Argentina and Chile’s World Cup qualification hopes were left on a knife edge Tuesday after the South American heavyweights slipped up once again on the road to next year’s finals in Russia.Argentina needed a second-half own goal to help them snatch a 1-1 draw against already-eliminated Venezuela in Buenos Aires while Chile crashed to a 1-0 defeat against Bolivia in La Paz.The results left 2014 World Cup finalists Argentina and reigning Copa America champions Chile outside of the automatic qualifying places and sets up a nail-biting final two rounds of matches next month.Argentina are fifth in the standings with 24 points from 16 games while Chile are sixth with 23 points.The Argentinians — who would face a playoff against New Zealand if they remain fifth — host fourth-placed Peru next month in Buenos Aires before an awkward final game at altitude against Ecuador.Chile meanwhile will face Ecuador in Santiago on October 5, before heading to Brazil for their final qualifier five days later.At the top of the table, Brazil have already qualified and assured themselves of first place. The Brazilians picked up another point on Tuesday with a 1-1 draw against third-placed Colombia in Barranquilla.A spectacular volleyed goal from Willian gave the Brazilians the lead on the stroke of half-time before Colombia clawed back a share of the points with a battling second-half display capped by a headed equaliser from Radamel Falcao. – Uruguay on brink –Uruguay meanwhile moved to the brink of qualification with a typically combative 2-1 win over Paraguay in Asuncion.Paraguay, riding high after a brilliant 3-0 win over Chile in Santiago last month, were left stunned by two opportunistic Uruguay goals.Federico Valverde fired Uruguay into the lead with a deflected shot on 76 minutes before Luis Suarez then broke clear to set up the visitors second.The Barcelona superstar rounded goalkeeper Anthony Silva and then saw his shot hit the woodwork only to rebound into the net off Gustavo Gomez.Angel Romero pulled a goal back for Paraguay but hopes of a dramatic late fightback came to nothing.The result leaves Uruguay second in the standings with 27 points from 16 games. A win in Venezuela in their next game would see them through to the finals.Seventh-placed Paraguay still have an outside chance of qualification but will probably need to beat Colombia in their next game before wrapping up their campaign against Venezuela.last_img read more

After Year-Long Search, New Minister Joins Olympia Congregation

first_imgFacebook37Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Olympia Unitarian Universalist CongregationAfter an intensive, year-long search The Rev. Thomas Perchlik was enthusiastically called to lead the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation (OUUC). The Rev. Perchlik comes to Olympia from First Unitarian Church of St. Louis, Missouri, where he was minister since August 2011. He will lead his first congregational service on August 14.“We are excited to welcome The Rev. Perchlik,” said Melanie Ransom, a member of the seven-person search committee. “He brings his passion for social justice as well as experience in guiding a congregation like ours that is rapidly growing and committed to making a difference in the Olympia community.”Rev. Thomas PerchlikDuring his years of ministry, The Rev. Perchlik has been active and involved in social justice issues, often taking a leadership role in ecumenical activities to address issues of importance in the local community as well as state and national arenas. He was drawn to the OUUC, in part, because of its focus around social justice issues, and particularly its accomplishments around ending homelessness. The OUUC played a key role in the development of Quixote Village, a 2.17-acre, $3.05 million real estate development housing previously homeless adults in Olympia. It was featured in a New York Times article as a template for homeless housing projects across the country. The OUUC also supports Out of The Woods Family Shelter, which is located on OUUC property.“I love working in the larger community,” Perchlik says. “It is an important part of my ministry to my church. I have come to see the unique gifts we Unitarian Universalists have to add to the larger liberal religious cry for justice.” “My idea of the best church would be one whose members seek a robust understanding of our religious identity, and one that includes the global range of Unitarian Universalist history,” said Perchlik. “I desire a congregation that actively supports ministerial excellence.”On August 7 at 12:30 pm, the Reverend Thomas Perchlik will dedicate the Black Lives Matter banner on the congregation’s building.  Reverend Perchlik brings his experience with Black Lives Matter from his work in St. Louis and Ferguson. The banner is a visible statement of OUUC’s commitment to address racism, implicit bias, and inequality, and a call to all people to join the movement toward a just world community. It is also a response to the national Unitarian Universalist Association’s call for its member congregations to support the Black Lives Matter movement and black-led justice organizations working for racial justice. OUUC offers forums and workshops to develop deeper understanding of the interconnected nature of racism with all systems of bias. The public is invited to join these conversations about ways to build a community that is equitable for all. For more information, contact [email protected] About the Olympia Unitarian Universalist CongregationIn 1952, a small band of like-minded folk founded the Unitarian Fellowship of Olympia, which went on to become the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Unitarian Universalists believe that each person is free to search for his or her own personal truth on issues, such as the existence, nature, and meaning of life, deities, creation, and afterlife. UUs can come from any religious background, and hold beliefs and adhere to morals from a variety of cultures or religions. The OUUC recognizes that being located in the state capital gives us special opportunities and responsibilities. In fulfilling our mission, we proclaim Unitarian Universalist values and advocate legislation that upholds them. OUUC Mission Statement: We are a liberal religious community that opens minds, fills hearts, and transforms lives.last_img read more

WHO uses Mxit, JamiiX to tackle disasters

first_img1 February 2011The World Health Organisation’s (WHO’s) South-East Asia regional office has teamed up with popular mobile social networks MXit and JamiiX – both developed in South Africa – to bring emergency preparedness information to chat users in disaster-prone Indonesia.This new approach is part of WHO’s wider effort to strengthen disaster preparedness in the region and build public awareness of the urgent need for safe hospitals in disaster zones.“The WHO campaign illustrates the value and power of social networking in assisting communities that need help most,” Mxit founder and CEO Herman Heunis said in a statement last week.“As climate change and severe weather variations take a hold of many locations around the world, it makes sense to develop ways for communities and countries to receive life-saving information and assistance in a reliable and affordable way.“We commend WHO for initiating this important project.”Leveraging new technologyIndonesians using MXit chat will be able to access personal preparedness information, including what to do in the case of natural disasters like floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and cyclones, how to prepare an emergency kit, and how to plan for possible evacuation.This information is teamed up with facts on safe hospitals in disaster zones and ways, as an individual, to support WHO’s drive for safe health facilities.“We are leveraging new communication technology in order to ease the availability, accessibility, and effectiveness of health information and services,” said Dr Roderico Ofrin, regional adviser for WHO’s emergency and humanitarian action. “Through this campaign we will continue to explore innovative means of bringing critical information in times of emergencies.”Power of social mediaOver the last decade, more than half-a-million people in South-East Asia have died in devastating floods, cyclones, earthquakes and tsunamis. People living in the region can support the campaign by adding their voice and signing up on MXit to assist WHO to reach its one-million supporter target.“Being able to access life-saving information at your fingertips is an empowering initiative by WHO, and we are excited to be part of this campaign, which displays the power of social media,” said Marlon Parker, CEO of JamiiX and founder of RLabs.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Marrying Up the Sales Process and the Buyer’s Journey

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now When one designs a sales process, it is normally presented on a slide, beginning on the left side with a box, normally titled “target.” It ends on the right side of that same slide with the box titled “won/lost.” It is shown to be a linear process.We generally follow the same format when we present the buyer’s journey, another orienting generalization with real value, even if it is not as straightforward for B2B as it is for B2C. That process is also shown as something linear, with a straight path that is predictable and easy to follow.Some sales organizations have decided to pay less attention to their sales process, preferring instead to believe their role is to facilitate the buyer’s journey. Others are slavishly devoted to their sales process without much regard for where the buyer is in their process, driving hard to move through their sales process, buyer be damned. Still others work diligently to line up these two processes. That, however, is not easily done.Not a Journey, but JourneysWhen you look at the major, disruptive trends in complex B2B sales over the last couple decades, none of them might be as important or as difficult for sales organizations as the number of stakeholders involved in a single opportunity. Not only do more stakeholders slow the process, more people involved in a decision tends also complicate things by revealing conflicting interests and internal priorities that are often at odds.As it pertains to lining up a sales process and a buyer’s journey, more stakeholders immediately destroy almost any approach one might take.Maybe the executive leadership understands the nature of their problem and is highly compelled to change. This is a wonderful occurrence if you’re the one calling on executive leadership in this hypothetical, especially if you have their support. But, what if at the same time their IT department is wedded to the status quo and willing to defend to the death any attempt to change things? These two groups are out of alignment in any buyer’s journey, and recognizing where each group is in your sales process isn’t all that likely to help you sort out their differences.Complex, and Increasingly SoBecause the buyer’s journey is nonlinear, the sales process is now nonlinear as well. Complex B2B sales is ever more complex.I wrote The Lost Art Closing: Winning the 10 Commitments That Drive Sales, to provide salespeople with the commitments that are generally needed to help people and organizations change. The commitments provide a bridge between the sales process and a buyer’s journey, acknowledging the fact that different stakeholders may be in very different places when it comes to their buying journey, and providing some guidance on what to do to help move them forward.last_img read more
