An Honor!!

On Sunday, Sept. 14, an article appeared in my local central jersey newspaper about The Stork Market and my work with Origins-USA.org.

As a result...I am very pleased to announce that I am being nominated for The Citizen of the Year awarded by the National Association of Social Workers, Inc., Washington, D.C. and by its State affiliate, NASW/New Jersey Chapter.

Public Citizen of the Year

The National Association of Social Workers (NASW), the largest membership organization of professional social workers, established the Public Citizen of the Year Award to honor an outstanding member of the community whose accomplishments exemplify the values and mission of professional social work. The award recipient is not a social worker.

The NASW-NJ Executive Committee will review all nominations and determine the recipients of the awards. The recipients of the three awards will be personally notified and an announcement of their selection will be published in FOCUS. The awards will be presented at the NASW-NJ Annual Conference.

Last year's recipient was Dr. Daniel Gottlieb.

Dr. Gottlieb, a practicing psychologist and family therapist for more than 35 years, is well known to many through his weekly National Public Radio (NPR) “Voices in the Family” broadcast, which has aired in southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey since 1985. His radio show, and his Philadelphia Inquirer “On Healing” column, cover an exhaustive array of topics, including depression, marital conflict, transgendered youth, multi-racial families, and many others.

His most recent book, Learning From the Heart: Lessons in Living, Loving, and Listening, was published in March 2008.

Fantastic.

If I see Joni Mitchell, I'll tell her you want to talk to her.

Mirah, congratulations!!! This is so well-deserved!

And thanks for stopping by the other day - I'm looking forward to seeing you at AAC, too, if not before then.
