    I have really enjoyed Malcolm Gladwell's books Tipping Point, Blink, and I am now listening to and enjoying his newest book Outliers: The Story of Success. 

    U of T Memory
    During a master's degree program at OISE I took a course on family therapy that changed my life. I was working toward working with women on career and life choices when the systems approach spoke to my being and I made the decision to continue with my education through further postgraduate work and become a marriage and family therapist. I obtained my Masters Of Education in 1981 from OISE. I attended the University of Guelph for postgraduate work for my accreditation as a clinical member of the Ontario Association For Marriage And Family Therapy. This was a series of course work but not a degree program in and of itself.
