While many mental health practitioners may be uncomfortable marketing their services, most are downright confused and even anxious when it comes to using web marketing to increase their referrals and build their visibility.

In this day long workshop you’ll learn:

  • How to get your web site to rank higher in the search engines
  • How to integrate a blog, video and an email newsletter into your web presence
  • How to handle HIPAA and other Internet use issues unique to mental health practitioners
  • How mental health practitioners can use social media appropriately; how to handle Facebook friendship requests, how to manage your privacy, and how to engage

Seasoned Worker Network™

Seasoned Worker Network™ By Bill Flynn “Starting this month, in cooperation with the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce, we are establishing the first Seasoned Worker Network™ (SWN) right here in Waterville,” said Bill Flynn, SWN Managing Director for the Seasoned Workforce™ LLC. “After attending a Seasoned Worker Forum at the Hampton Inn just this past November, I carried away the encouragement I needed to become more active in the community in order to find a good job. The energy I felt with the other people who attended was incredible. Our plan is to network together to improve our skills in technology, build a network of service providers and companies, uncover employment opportunities, and to help and encourage each other to grow, and even reinvent ourselves.” The first Seasoned Worker Network™ organizational meeting will be held at the Mid-Maine Chamber Offices at 50 Elm Street in Waterville on Tuesday afternoon, January 25, 2011, from 1 PM until 3 PM.

It's Arthur's 35 Anniversary in Print, and he's coming to the Colby Bookstore to celebrate! Arthur is a fun-loving eight-year-old aardvark that millions of kids around the world identify with as one of their own. His experiences in books and on television speak to the everyday trials and triumphs of real children everywhere. Whether it's convincing his parents that he's responsible enough to take care of a new puppy, or realizing the consequences of a little white lie, Arthur shows that nobody is perfect. One thing's for sure though; kids can always count on him to tell the story from their perspective.
The Colby Bookstore’s fifteenth annual children's book character party is Saturday, March 5th from 1 – 3 PM at The Colby Bookstore in Cotter Union, on the campus of Colby College in Waterville. There will be story telling, cookie decorating, other fun activities, and the opportunity to meet our special guest – Arthur!
