New Vendor Partner – Psychotherapy.net

psychotherapy-logo-streamingWiLS is very excited to announce a brand-new partnership with streaming-video vendor Psychotherapy.net! Psychotherapy.net offers a large and growing collection of highest quality training videos in the field of psychotherapy. Training therapists (and therapists-to-be) poses unique challenges. Unlike almost every other profession, students rarely have the chance to view their mentors or teachers actually doing psychotherapy. Watching master psychotherapists in action on video is probably the next best thing. The opportunity to view actual sessions, and to hear leading experts discuss their thoughts behind their interventions is invaluable. Videos also capture the critical non-verbal aspects of therapy, including body language, facial expression, tone of voice, and the rhythm of the therapist-client interaction. The Full Collection consists of more than 250 such videos with new titles being added frequently. The company has also recently added an all-new Social Work Collection, collecting 40 videos specifically made to offer the same kind of training and educational support to your Social Work students and faculty.

Name Our Newletters!

Newsboy_selling_papers (1)In October, WiLS will be re-launching our current Cooperative Purchasing Newsletters as broader publications appealing to each of our library types. The “new” newsletters will still include cooperative purchasing news, but will also feature member news, learning opportunities and much more. We’re really excited about the new format and content and we think you will too!

The problem is that we’re stumped as to what to call them! The current front-runner is “Wordy McNewsalot” so the bar is pretty low. We know that our infinitely creative members can come up with something way better. What title would YOU suggest? Make some suggestions here!
