I have an assignment in my Speech Communication class to interview a person who has been in the United States 5 years or less. I am to ask them questions about how life and communication is different here from their home culture. My problem is I know of no one that has been here 5 years or less let alone 8 years.
So DP if you yourself are an immigrant to this country of less than 5 years or know someone who is and wouldn't mind being asked 5-7 questions about communication and your home culture at a coffee shop near your home please email me and I will get a hold of you to arrange a time and place.
Thank you so much!
Please move along if you have nothing but snark in you...
Does anyone here have personal experience/current or past participation with a local rape support group? I googled but wasn't having much luck; I am looking for a support group/counseling type scenario in order to deal with a recently-generated PTSD situation involving a long-past abusive relationship; I have a counselor, but she is out of town for a few weeks and I wanted to see if there was anything available short term.
So I'm trying to get the whole filing my taxes on the road but I have a problem. I'm married, but we're separated, and from what I understand, I need his information in order to file separately. A month and a half ago, we had decided to file together, but he's been unreachable and keeps telling me that he doesn't have the time or the money.
So, how does one file taxes while still married when the other person is refusing to cooperate and withholding information from you? I've e-mailed him a few times about this and so far I've gotten nothing back. I have no idea what to do. Google brings up a lot of "How to file your taxes" and "How to file together" stuff, but not much of anything about filing when you don't have any of your spouses information.
EDIT: Information obtained and situation resolved. I have the information I need. Thank you guys!
I know we've seen lots of posts on therapy or counseling in this community, but I don't recall any specifically mentioning CBT. I am looking for somewhere (preferably within reasonable TriMet distance from SE) that does cheap / discounted / sliding scale or simply very good cognitive behavioral therapy (preferably specializing in the treatment of clinical depression). The prospective patient in question does not have health insurance or a job.
Info on other non-tradtional (I guess it's not all that non-traditional, but it isn't psychoanalysis or interpersonal / straight "talk" type psychotherapy) therapies available would be appreciated as well.
OK, people, I want them: your personal experiences with acupuncture. I've been doing reading online and am leaning towards "acupuncture is bunk;" apparently that Nixon-aide-appendectomy was done under regular anesthesia after all (acupuncture was applied during the recovery period along with allopathic pain relievers). But I'm intrigued by the notion and wanted to take a broader view of it than just googling around until I found an answer that fit my suspicions in the first place.
I have had acupuncture done and was mostly unimpressed. It hurt quite a bit and I was informed that the pain derived from an imbalance from my liver. Hmmmmm...What's your experience? Naturally, I'd love to hear from acupuncturists and people of a science-y disposition.
In your experience, what's the best route?
We're leaving from North Portland at about 1:30pm tomorrow. Google Maps suggests taking the 5 south to Corvallis, then the 20 over to the coast. Since I've never taken the 20, I'm curious whether anyone has a better suggestion.
