Blogging for professional development and healing

Here is a very interesting presentation given by Bronnie Thompson who is an occupational therapist, educator and PhD candidate. She has used blogging as a means of recovering from concussion, and for professional development. You may be especially interested in the topic of her blog which is about living with chronic pain - the blog is called HealthSkills.
