Recovery begins with hope published

6 Dec 2010 by Karl Hallam

Cadence Director Sophy Hallam is a co-author of a report that was published last week called Recovery from hope. The other author was ex-Director of the ex-Whitehall Innovation Hub, Su Maddock. Su had an article in Public magazine last week to coincide with a launch event that was not cancelled due to snow.

Su's article started by saying that Sarah had a psychotic episode after the birth of her first child - she says it was a care coordinator who helped her pick up the pieces. Later she had a second episode and was left angry and depressed when another care coordinator left her to her own devices because she didn't appreciate Sarah's desire for shared recovery planning and instead classified her as 'high risk' for being difficult.

It is relationships that matter in mental health services. When traumatised, we all want friends and professionals who listen, give us hope and help us through difficult times. There is no point talking about personalisation unless it is personal.'

I'm the biggest beeievlr in indexing in the world, Two Cents. My view is that most indexing advocates today have little idea how big an innovation indexing really is. I think it is going to change the nature of the stock investing project in fundamental and far-reaching ways.I agree with you about the dogmatism of many passive investors. I believe that the problem here is that they have a lack of confidence in their strategies. We have only in recent decades begun to study investing systematically and we have made huge advances but also gotten some things terribly wrong. The dogmatics sense that their ideas don't all add up and this makes them defensive. These are intellectually smart people who are often not as strong in the emotions department.Indexing DOES solve the problem of the people on the other side of the table being smarter than you, in my view. If you are of medium intelligence (you are obviously far more advantaged than that, Two Cents!), half of the investors setting the market price are smarter than you and half are not as smart. By buying an index you give up the chance of making a killing but also impose a floor on how bad you can do (no worse than the market as a whole).All you have to worry about are two things: (1) that the productivity of the overall economy remains roughly stable in the long term; and (2) that you not pay too high a price. Indexing GREATLY simplifies the investing project.I see a need to distinguish indexing (a great simplification) with passive investing, which I see as being the primary cause of the economic crisis. Passive Investors do not adjust their stock allocations in response to big price swings. I view the idea that there is no need to adjust one's stock allocation in response to big price swings as the biggest mistake ever made in personal finance. The idea that timing is not required for all stock investors has caused more human misery than any earlier idea in the history of investing, in my assessment.I wish you the best of luck in your learning/investing project, Two Cents. My guess is that you will do well.Rob [url=]tzeoodzcchu[/url] [link=]fduygyihe[/link]

Hi Peta and everyone, I've just <a href="">lietnesd</a> to Gillian Hallam talk about this survey at Click 06 and will blog about it later today, but in the meantime, yes, we should all be completing this survey! It's going to provide very useful information for planning for the future of our profession.CW, signing off at lunch at Click 06(just had Szechuan chicken, eggplant and cauliflower curry and spicy spuds with rice.. mmmm)

think it just caused a rucuks amongst mortgage brokers. It's understandable to defend your own industry. Hey, weren't you a mortgage broker at one time?The part of the CMT rebuttal that I disagreed with was when Rob said, It is possible to pick your own investments, do your own taxes or write your own will, but people still hire financial planners, accountants and lawyers. There’s only so much time in a day and we can’t specialize in everything. This implies that a mortgage broker has the same level of expertise and credibility as a profession that takes many years of schooling and training, not just a few months.Now I'm sure there are many fantastic mortgage brokers out there, but that comparison is a bit of a stretch. There was a time when people thought, why wouldn't anyone use a travel agent? It's so convenient and they'll shop around for the best deal and check out all the hotel reviews for you. And then along came 3rd party sites like Expedia, Travelocity, TripAdvisor and Priceline and many Travel Agencies went out of business because if it's relatively simple, people would rather do it themselves.

Hi Graham, I am curious about your poll. I am a Master's sudetnt doing this study on the FB timeline. As part of the poll, were there more questions other than - What do you think about the FB timeline? A staggering 8% only seem to like the FB timeline. Was there any discussion/response on why they don't like it? Any information would be helpful! Thanks,Sheetal.
