Subject: Re: Bibliography on Humor and therapy
Would you send me a copy of this bib please? I'm a therapist in Iowa
workshops on the power of humor as a stress reliever.
BTW, I always get a small yearning for the past every time I see your
posts. I spent two years with you Devils working on my master's and always
wonder about this time of the year what in the hell I came back to Iowa for!
