“The Right Services...To the Right People...At the Right Time!”

Helping families All in a day’s work for AWARE clinicians By Jim Tracy


pend time with AWARE’s lead clinicians and you come away with the impression that they believe in what they do, care deeply about the people they work with and depend on one another for advice and support. They’re also a key in implementing AWARE’s 10 Principles of Unconditional Care. The concept of having leading clinicians is fairly new. In 2006, Dr. Leonard Lantz, AWARE medical director, and Jeff Folsom, chief of operations, started discussing lead clinicians as part of a reorganization effort that allowed AWARE to separate administrative duties (often assigned to therapists in human service organizations) from clinical superviLead clinicians: Danielle Eldridge, Shawna Schaar, Anna Rapson, Andrea Savage, sion and leadership.

ay 14th was an interesting day at the Galen School campus. Several volcanic eruptions, a visit from a medieval knight, a glimpse into the daily life of a velociraptor, the intricacies of robotics and the amazing world of insects were but a few of the exhibits at the school’s annual science and art fair. All of the students in the school participated in the fair having worked for more than three months researching and honing their projects into works that are at the same time informative and colorful. The art that the students produce throughout their school year is collected and all of it is shown at the fair. See Science Fair on Page 14
