Extended Winter in the North East

As I sit at my desk and wait to clock out for the day. I’m waiting for the last winter storm to develop and move through. I look forward to Spring days and flowers and buds on trees and longer days. Because as much as I enjoy my job and Therap :-) …. sitting at my desk and being in the office has drained my spirit. I need a day at the beach :-) soon.

Training New Therap Users


I find that some new users feel overwhelmed with new technology. And, those are the ones that I often focus on when training. Tech savvy users follow along, and sometimes scout ahead. The introduction of just the basic functions of Therap, is key to easing newbies into the world of Therap. Start with 1) Login, 2) This is your Dashboard, 3) Left Column you have the *To Do list and * Individual tabs (that’s it, wait to discuss the tabs that follow) 4) Modules *ISP Data * T-Logs 5) S-Comms. I may have simplified it with steps missing in this post, but my point is, do not overwhelm them with too much information. Have them navigate with prompts so that they feel at ease. Before you conclude that first session, suggest that they log in and browse through the system. This alleviates the monster in the closet syndrome (Yes, I just made that up, or did I). When they become familiar with Therap, it doesn’t seem mysterious and scary. Next session, hit them with the other important modules.

New Jersey National Conference 2017

I am such a geek and therefore anticipating the Therap National Conference like a child on Christmas. I want to be on top of my game and I plan on devoting time to going over my modules providing relevant dialog about how my agency utilizes the system. My vocational program is also piloting the Employment/Volunteering History Module. I hope to be able to share our experience and learn more at the conference. If anyone is interested in how the use of the module is going for my agency email me @ nndiaye@gwct.org

Meriden CT Therap Training

The recent Therap Training in Meriden CT was pretty good. The first day of the conference 9/27/16, I enjoyed the question and answer set up of most of the classes. By day two, I admittedly was not as invested as day one. The format of classes went back to show and tell. That said, I do look forward to more Trainings and Nerd exchanges, where I can talk Therap Speak and ask more questions. Happy Fall all… I thought I would use my blog more often, so I’m going to try.
