Unconditional Positive Regard is a term that I first heard ages ago, but we’ve been discussing it in the Certificate IV in Mental Health.

It’s back to work we go. On Monday, my first day back it was ridiculously hot. Thankfully the air conditioning worked as I heard that the AC in a friend’s building broke down. On second thoughts, she got to go home… On Monday night the cool change came through, so things were a bit more [...]

A was still not well today, so he stayed at home with Willow. She didn’t throw up today and ate toast and dry biscuits and drank water and Gastrolite. When I got home, she had perked up considerably. I was looking forward to today, the start of a new job with a new program means [...]
