Endings And Beginnings

All of us at BateWorld and The BatorBlog want to thank Garland and Toby for their insightful and thought-provoking articles for The BatorBlog’s Dr. Bate column. After two years of monthly articles, they’ll now be moving on to pursue their calling in private practice and group workshops and we all want to wish them the best.

We’re so grateful for the opportunity to share their wisdom with our readers and the BateWorld community, and I know there are great things ahead for Toby and Garland and their clients.

This is not the end of Dr. Bate, however, and we’ll be announcing our new advisors soon.

Thanks again you guys! We’re very proud of you and wish you continued success. Bate On!
