Professional Wills: Following Up and Looking To the Future

Professional Wills: Following Up and Looking To the Future

by Dena Sorbo, LCSW

 

Dear Colleagues,

To those of you who attended the conference on professional wills at SFCP on Saturday, March 29, 2014, thank you.

The meeting highlighted how challenging it is to write a professional will. Writing a professional will is simple, as a practical task; the difficulty stems from the emotions that arise in all of us in the anticipation and in the actual writing. Because it is so challenging, many participants requested follow-up support for completing this task.

A question to all: How have you done with completing your professional will? Have you started it? Or completed it? Have you made arrangements with a designated colleague? Whether you have proceeded or gotten stuck, the committees would like to know what factors contributed to your progress, or what got in the way.

Message from the Board Chair

by Zach Cowan

 

In this issue of the newsletter you'll see articles from our President Michael Donner and our Interim Executive Director, Beth Schecter, about their approaches to taking care of SFCP after Jeff Miller's departure, and to replacing him. I thought it would be good to provide my perspective as Chair of the Board of Trustees as well. I'll start by saying that while changes can be good or bad, I generally focus on the potential for positive change, and bend my efforts in that direction.
