2012: A Happy New Year to everyone out there

Was 2011 a good year for Older Mind Matters Ltd and for me personally? Looking back as 2012 starts, what has been achieved?

I graduated in July – here’s me at Trentham Gardens.

Over the year various papers were published – including two on my PhD work and one in Educational Gerontology that I’m fairly pleased with – and I was re-elected to the IPA Board for a second term. I attended various meetings including the International Psychogeriatric Association Congress in Den Haag. It was an honour (and a surprise) for me to be awarded the Faculty of Old Age Psychiatry Lifetime Achievement Award in March 2011.

Older Mind Matters Ltd has continued to do regular work with Staffordshire University and other pieces of work independently. I acted as independent chair of an Inquiry into an alleged homicide, carried out a qualitative data analysis for another company, and have continued to teach and do talks. I am currently working on opportunities to build up a systemic therapy practice.

So at the start of 2012 I feel clearer about what the work I enjoy doing and the areas that are strengths and opportunities for the future. I wish a happy healthy and productive New Year to all my current and potential colleagues and customers.
