Check out the new BLOOM


By Louise Kinross

Read our latest issue of BLOOM.

Here are some quotes to draw you into the content:

-From an American philosophy professor with a disability who has written a memoir: “I feel an affinity with difficult beauty because with a disability your worth, your value in the world, is not so easily seen by other people.” (See top story Trailblazer)

-From a clinical psychologist at the Hospital for Sick Children doing post-doctoral research on using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with youth with chronic pain: “The goal is to create a psychologically flexible mind, and there are six ways to build it.” (see MentalHealth)

-From our first Empowering Black Academics, Researchers and Knowledge Creators (EMBARK) scientist: “The barriers I have faced are complex and can be emotionally tough for me to describe.” (See ResearchHits)
