I was able to bring forward my concerns about Domestic Violence advocacy and the "culture change" approach now supported by Berkeley Medical Anthropology and involving the "clinical gaze critique" of Foucault which was applied by Bascaglia in Trieste.

The CalMHSA statewide group has taken on the "behave, please" project, called "Each Mind Matters" (as long as you behave!) - the import being the extreme engagement with compliance type behavior and then the chance of "reach-out" to your 'mind' being offered. The "Viking" motif of the event shows how to sail - not having 'stigma' get in your way - and then not attend to the consequences to the people you meet on landing.

HERE is the flyer for the Menlo Park event which promotes that perspective, as was announced with pride at the Stakeholder meeting Dec. 19th. Registration link is HERE - I did so already (the event is FREE and takes place 8AM-4PM on Saturday, January 24, before Spring Semester starts).
