BC Counsellor - Spring/Summer 2015 - (Page 5)

>>>>> THE FINE PRINT From New Brain Therapy to Social Media Sharing BY BARBARA ZANG I want to say a huge thank you to Ren Morley, past president, for writing an article for the President's Message when Dave Mackenzie was not available. Next issue, look for Dave's message as Ren has now earned a much-deserved break. You may have received this magazine as a surprise mailing to your school. In an effort to make people aware of this magazine and the work of BC School Counsellors, a complimentary copy has been mailed to schools throughout the province. To join the BC School Counsellor's Association (and receive a copy of every issue), visit our website at www.bcschoolcounsellor.com or follow the links at the BC Teachers' Federation website to the PSAs and look for us. Spring has flattened out towards summer and the sense of well-being increases for most people making May 4-10, 2015 the perfect time for BC Mental Health Week. Find or create something in your community to celebrate. We need to continue the global conversation about mental health and build awareness and knowledge in our communities. This issue has come together with new contributors offering an eclectic mix of information that I hope appeals to your sense of adventure and piques your interest. If Neurotherapy is new to you, be sure to read the article for a fascinating look at how brains can change and the combining of human interactions and computer technology come more bang, less buck together in a new technique. You may follow this type of thing on social media, in which case the article on connecting on-line will be interesting. I just heard a comment referring to Facebook as "The Internet" in the context of having over a billion users and being considered a global community. With so much information sharing, it's always prudent to remind ourselves of risks and wise rules for professional usage. Enjoy these and other tidbits you pick up in this issue. Finally, you heard it here first - mark October 22-23, 2015 on your calendar for the BCSCA conference at the Pacific Gateway Hotel in Richmond, BC. The website will be open for registrations before the end of this school year. Check it out and sign up early for special prize draws. Learn more at www.bcscaconference.ca. QUALITY Ryerson Image Centre Memorial offers a unique learning environment at a more affordable cost than other universities in Canada. How is this possible? The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has gone out of its way to invest in post-secondary education. That helps keep our tuition lower while at the same time leaving our students with one less thing to worry about.
