Hello Hello! So nice to type to you all through your inboxes and into your daily routine. I must say we had a very busy September. We have a new upstart in Narmada. Narmada is a very nice, and helpful, person and, she works at Caversham now. We are thankful she joined us. You will catch her, most days, out front on the shop floor, amidst the humans, the books, and, various piles of whatsie-whosie that are telltale signs of various situations in flux. Welcome Narmada.           
We are hosting a book launch tomorrow. Tomorrow is October tenth and it will happen here at 98 Harbord St. Don Carveth (see photo below) is a lovely person and an incredibly worthwhile author and thinker. Many of you have already made it known that you intend on being here (what good taste!). I encourage anyone with a weakness for approachable, and spa-like, psychoanalytic discourse, as well as Veronika's exquisite culinary nibblies, to pop by at 7pm.
            Ron Ruskin's new book is also out this month. This makes us very happy. See the details below! We are attending many conferences including our annually anticipated Christine Padesky events in Ottawa and Toronto. If you pop in to see us it may look a little bit tranquil. What is actually going on is that everyone, except me, is mentally shoulder rolling through the planning and execution of various book related happenings. Why except me? I am far too busy, in the basement, practising at blowing bubbles. Happy all hallows' eve my lovelies!      
Don Carveth book launch tomorrow!

Book Launch Feature!
Since the classical Freudian and ego psychology paradigms lost their position of dominance in the late 1950s, psychoanalysis became a multi-paradigm science with those working in the different frameworks increasingly engaging only with those in the same or related intellectual "silos." Beginning with Freud’s theory of human nature and [More. . .]

Review of Emotional Regulation Toolkit
by Tania DaSilva of Behaviour Matters
A profoundly useful resource has touched down at Caversham to stay. Tania popped by to show us all about it a few weeks ago. This toolkit includes a six week program with coping cards, a reusable think sheet, action cards, and a number of other dynamite resources. The six week program is explained and broken down very well and can be tailored to younger or older children without adding to, or altering, the toolkit. This immaculately presented barrel of practical wisdom even comes with a complementary 15 minute phone conversation to get you going on the right foot— bespoke styles. I am thankful to live in the same era as such things.

Our beautiful street.
