Litemind Psychotherapy Brown Bag: Weblogs I don't normally post twice in a single day, but I wanted to post links to a few mental health resources that have recently caught my attention and our standard daily articles don't really afford me an opportunity to do so. Jonathan Kaplan's blog on mindfulness is one of our favorites. In addition to general information on mindfulness, the blog provides insightful thoughts on how to be mindful amidst the chaos of urban living. I am actually mildly conflicted in posting this one. We have referenced this site numerous times on PBB. This blog provides information on bipolar spectrum disorders from a first person perspective.

Creative Problem Solving with SCAMPER SCAMPER is a technique you can use to spark your creativity and help you overcome any challenge you may be facing. In essence, SCAMPER is a general-purpose checklist with idea-spurring questions — which is both easy to use and surprisingly powerful.
