Dear Colleagues,

I have started a bibliography beginning with books and articles that LRS owns or has access. I have not prettied it up. I will send a copy to Missy. Missy, I also went and pulled the 3 books LRS owns off the shelf. They are on a chair in my office. I will also look for some good websites and add those.

Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal, MD is one of the leaders in this field.  LRS owns his Winter Blues book, 1998 but he now has a newer edition.
Winter Blues, Fourth Edition: Everything You Need to Know to Beat Seasonal Affective Disorder., Sept. 2012. I would like to suggest that LRS purchases a copy.  In the older edition, chapter 7 is entirely about light therapy.

Because light therapy is used as part, or sometimes all, treatment for seasonal affective disorder (SAD) which can also be part of a larger concern of depression, there should be a large sign encouraging people to seek out help from the SCSU counseling center, suicide prevention hotline, other depression URLs, etc.

Yours thinking of Robin Williams.

Subject: [LRS_l] Full Spectrum Lights in MC – Brainstorm Session Monday

In partnership with the Counseling and Psychological Services department, we will have full spectrum lights in the Miller Center (in the space to the south to the Dean’s Office) from roughly October 1 thru roughly May 1.

 

You are invited to join a brainstorming session at 1 p.m. on Monday in MC 135G.  We will discuss ideas regarding placement of lights, layout of space, promotion/marketing, and assessment.  Please feel free to send ideas via email as well.  If you’re not available to attend on Monday, but interested in getting involved, I will send notes after the meeting that include the next meeting date.
