Glendon’s presence at this year’s APA Convention in Orlando, Florida proved to be a great success. Dr. Lisa Firestone presented to a professional audience on the subject of suicide prevention during rough economic times. She also held a book signing for her latest text, The Self Under Siege, co-authored by Dr. Robert Firestone and Joyce Catlett.

Dr. Firestone also joined with Glendon’s Director of Communications, Jina Carvalho, and new media specialist, Lena Firestone to present on how non-profits and mental health professionals can use new and social media to promote education and awareness in their field. Glendon’s creation of the psychology website for the public,, served as a strong model for how new technological platforms can encourage people to take an introspective approach to life and seek out psychological help.
