After dinner, stay for a debate! Dr. Michael Edelstein, Ph.D., renowned clinical psychologist and author of the nationally-acclaimed book 'Three Minute Therapy,' will be debating Tom Wooton, author of The Bipolar Advantage(2005), The Depression Advantage(2007)and the upcoming Bipolar In Order(2010) and founder of Bipolar Advantage. The debate topic is entitled, "Pro and con: Certain emotional states, such as depression, bipolar, and schizophrenia, traditionally viewed as problems lacking a cure, can be properly viewed-- and experienced--as assets, instead."
Tom founded Bipolar Advantage with the mission to help people with mental conditions shift their thinking and behavior so that they can lead extraordinary lives. He challenges many of the pervasive attitudes about mental conditions and charts a different course that looks at the positive as well as negative aspects of mental conditions. He has worked tirelessly to change the paradigm of how we look at and treat mental conditions.
Tom's mental health clients include Kaiser Permanente, Orange County Behavioral Health, Riverside County Behavioral Health, San Bernardino County Behavioral Health, Mental Health Associations throughout California, and NAMI organizations nationwide.
