After many months of planning and work with my web designer, the PsychSTAR website is finally up and running! The idea for a resource website came from the many enthusiastic workshop participants who expressed an interest in accessing some of the materials that I have developed for my workshops, classes, and clinical practice. If you can't find resources that you think would be useful in your clinical work, feel free to contact me!
