GIODN welcomed authors Larry Kokkelenberg and Regan Miller in September 2022 to discuss their book “The Accidental Practitioner.” What we see/hear, or don’t see/hear, is tempered by our values, life experiences, judgments, biases, and perceptions. How you interpret events, dictates your conclusions and behaviors. Your conclusions and paradigms proceed your advice and recommendations. What you know and do best limits you. Being aware of your biases, your thinking, and emotional patterns increase your awareness of self and increase your openness to other viewpoints.
