I didn't see this posted yet. Mods - feel free to delete this thread if it is already been put up. Small Wins Matter in Advocacy Movements: Giving Voice to Patients. Jason LA. DePaul University, Chicago, IL, USA, firstname.lastname@example.org. Am J Community Psychol. 2011 Aug 20. [Epub ahead of print]Abstract Abstract Jason does a nice job of outlining many of the elements leading to change in the last few years (I know that sometimes its hard to see the change but I think it is there - while not nearly fast enough). I found this take on patient advocacy refreshing and more than a bit ironic given all that Simon Wessely has been up to in the past few weeks. Both Jason and Wessely are trained in research on the psychological aspects of health (Jason is a psychologist and Wessely is a psychiatrist) but to Wessely, his focus has morphed into obsession with self and an inability to see the big picture because of the alleged actions a a few (delusions of grandeur mixed with rage over a lack of appreciation and a persecution complex?). Jason sees the whole. I strongly suspect that Wessely will only part of the conversation for as long as he can keep the spotlight on himself. Jason, by contrast, will have a lasting impact. He is an inspiration. Dr. Jason, Thank You!
