Remembering Don Taves:
Dr. Taves was our Clinical Supervisor and Consulting Psychiatrist at Catholic Community Services in Mount Vernon in 1989 / 1991 while I was there. He, along with the other professionals around that weekly consultation table, taught me the power of co-respectful teamwork and consensus building. We learned not to waste any team member's feelings. If we wanted an intervention to work we needed to find a way to integrate each participant's feelings into the plan.
