Reba Riley is the debut author of Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome: A Memoir of Humor & Healing In 30 Religions, the founder of the Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome community online, and a blogger at Patheos.com
Reba grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home where the wallpaper & dinner napkins featured Bible verses, & the Smurfs were considered demonic. She told her kindergarten class the letters of Santa's name could be arranged to "Satan." Reba’s 10,000 hours of education included evangelical schools, Christian college followed by a stint at the Focus of the Family Institute with Dr. James Dobson, and an intensive ministry training program at a megachurch in Colorado Springs—a program that swiftly kicked her out when she shared her religious doubts with the leadership. Reba lost everything - including herself. Enter Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome.
Reba got sick. Really sick. With a near-debilitating chronic mystery illness doctors couldn’t diagnose or treat. At 29, the illness made her vulnerable enough that she finally had to face the fact she’d avoided for the better part of a decade: her spirit was sicker than her body. Reba decided to undertake a spiritual recovery program: she would visit thirty religions before her thirtieth birthday—not to find a religion, but to find peace.
Through her adventures, Reba realized she didn’t have to choose religion to choose God…or good. She discovered sometimes we have to get lost to get found. Two years after completing her thirty religions project and eighteen months after recovering from her illness, Reba is here to share dispatches from her journey of healing.

Obama demands that Israel accept "immediate, unconditional" surrender to Hamas and "strengthen the Palestinian Authority," and he's got the entire United Nations behind him; All of a sudden, the rest of the Right (including Rush Limbaugh) is waking up to what I've been saying for months: Barack Obama lusts after his own impeachment as a means of crushing the GOP once and for all; and full, complete, total, coast-to-coast, 100% amnesty-by-executive decree is incoming - will Republicans be stupid enough to take the bait?
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP from www.teachmetotalk.com as she answers an SLP's questions about treatment with 2 of her little clients. We'll be looking at the diagnostic differences between apraxia and dysarthria and the treatment differences she should consider for this little one with Down syndrome who is signing but has a very limited spoken vocabulary. The second client is a 3 yo little boy with severe expressive/receptive delays who is using some phrases at times. The SLP is considering a diagnosis of selective mutism, but we'll explore other possibilities. It's going to be a great show with lots of practical tips for differential diagnosis in addition to treatment ideas!

SHOW NOTES: Our MANAGEMENT MAGICIANS™ series is dedicated to those exceptional few who step forward to serve as guides, sages and responsible parties for others in pursuit of the greater good for society and their organization! In this episode, our topic is, "How to effectively avoid the ‘Mean Manager Syndrome’!”
Remember, most people do not want to be managers (aka “the boss”)! The “Mean Manager Syndrome” often is a result of a person who never should have accepted (or continue to accept) a management position as it overloads them (in terms of time, stress, skills, emotional outlay, etc.). You will not experience the syndrome if you:
1) Do not accept a position as a manager if it is “too much” (of anything).
2) If you do accept a position as a manager (or continue to accept one), understand that your goal is for your team to view you as “tough but fair.” When this is achieved you will not be viewed as mean but as someone who cares (about the organization, getting the work done the right way, yourself, and them).
Here are your tools to reach this goal of being “tough but fair”:
- Care about yourself (physically, emotionally, etc.). When you are kind to yourself, you are kind to others.
- Smile (or show humor in a manner that fits your personality and demeanor)
- Demonstrate that you care about the organization and the team (with actions not simply words)
- Hold yourself accountable…and everyone else to the same rules (no favorites or special treatment).
- Consistency, Confidentiality and Compliance are your code of conduct.
CAUTION: If a manager is not fair, they FAIL as a manager.
How many people do you know, that have that " I know all I need to know "Syndrome ? I bet a few.
