REST & FLUIDS STILL GREAT ADVICE FOR BEATING THE FLU TAMIFLU CAN HELP TOO

(San Bernardino, Ca.) – If you have the flu, drink lots of liquids and get lots of rest.

“This advice is as good in the 21st Century as it ever was,” said Dr. Romeo Rodriguez, a doctor of internal medicine with La Salle Medical Associates.”

“But there’s one more we can do now. We can also prescribe Tamiflu,” he said. “This is an antiviral medication that will wipe out the virus causing the flu.”

Like all physicians at LaSalle Medical Associates, Dr. Rodriguez advocates people beat the flu before it happens, by getting a flu shot.

“If you have already had the flu though, you usually don’t need a flu shot for the rest of the season,”

Dr. Rodriguez makes a few exceptions to this rule though.

He would like those over the age of 65, and those who have chronic conditions such as diabetes, to have two flu shots per season. The first would take place as soon as the vaccine is available in the fall, followed by a second vaccine in January.

“If they had the flu early and did not get the first vaccine, we still would like to see our elderly and chronically ill patients again in January,” he said.

“The flu is hard on anyone, but when you are older or chronically ill, it can be even rougher. We want to do everything we can to prevent old and sick people from getting sicker.”

If you need Tamiflu or a flu vaccine, call the clinic closest to you.

LEADER JOINS IE AFRICAN AMERICAN CHAMBER BOARD

(San Bernardino, Calif.) Carl M. Dameron, agency director of the Inland Empire advertising and public relations firm Dameron Communications, is a new board member of the 100-member Inland Empire African American Chamber of Commerce.

As one of the six board members of the Inland Empire African American Chamber of Commerce, Dameron is looking forward to utilizing his experience, knowledge and contacts to help the chamber achieve its own dreams.

Dolores Armstead, vice president of the chamber, said, “We’ll be looking to Carl for his expertise in advertising, marketing and outreach, to get ourselves better known throughout the entire Inland Empire. He knows how to do it, and that’s why we chose him.”

“I’m honored,” Dameron said. “As founding board member of the chamber back in the late ‘80s I hold a special fondness for the chamber. In fact we had the pleasure of designing the group’s initial logo. The chamber is incredibly important to the Inland Empire by helping black businesses succeed in a very complex market.”
Over nearly two decades the Inland Empire African American Chamber of Commerce has worked relentlessly toward that goal. “With all the effort they’ve put into this,” Dameron explains, “they’re now catching up to their original expectations, and black businesses are finding their own prominent places in the Inland Empire communities.”
Chamber members include the Arrowhead Credit Union; Sawyer, Cook and Co., The Black Voice News and OJB Engineering.

For more than 15 years Dameron has succeeded in media, advertising, community relations, promotion and public relations. Dameron also created the Inland Empire Diversity Career and Job Fairs in 1994. The event at one time was the largest business events in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Dameron’s media connections have yielded client coverage in every local newspaper, on every major television network, cable television, plus such national publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times.

A former editor of The Black Voice News weekly Dameron, established his own advertising-public relations business in 1989. “Having been in this field for so long,” he said, “it’s obvious I love it. I enjoy the satisfaction of seeing my clients’ companies grow, become respected successes in their communities, partially through how Dameron Communications has helped their leaders achieve their dreams.”

Preventing Workplace Violence; Local Professor Offers Advice on Steps To Avoid Incidents

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – April 18 – Frightened workers scatter, police officers crouch behind squad cars as an angry employee roams the office with a loaded weapon. Americans have become all too familiar with the scenario as incidents of workplace violence occur around the country.

However, Dr. David Sellen, a professor at Argosy University/Inland Empire, says work-related homicides are less common than other forms of workplace violence. “Rape and physical assaults are more common,” he said. “But they don’t get the attention of the media.”

Sellen, a professor in Argosy University’s department of Psychology, teaches courses such as psychodynamics, counseling and interview techniques. He has a law degree from Southwestern University, Los Angeles, and a doctorate in Neuropsychology from University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Sellen works with law enforcement agencies in Critical Incident Debriefing, where psychologists help victims of violent acts normalize their feelings. He says that workplace shootings are often caused by a combination of events.

“These situations include a triggering event, such as a job termination, interpersonal trauma, such as depression, stress or substance abuse, and an unprepared workplace environment,” he says. “Office buildings are often less prepared for violent acts than courthouses and police stations which often have security.”

The typical workplace shooter is more often male than female, has a history of violence, tends to be withdrawn and a loner. Other signs include antagonistic and obsessive behavior and career frustration. Workers are also under additional pressure because of the lack of stability in today’s workplace.

“People tend to feel less secure in their jobs because of the way the economy has changed,” Sellen said. “The average person is likely to see at least three major job changes in their lifetime and most people are not prepared. People tend to think the employer will take care of them.”

Failing to prevent and protect workers from workplace violence is extremely expensive for American companies. Sellen estimates workplace violence-related lawsuits cost American employers about $500 million annually. Faced with these rising costs, more companies are being proactive in training workers to prevent and identify potentially violent situations.

“Ever since 9-11, more companies have started offering training to help employees address grievances and to defuse situations,” he said. “Many companies now offer Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) which offer free counseling for employees who are facing personal problems.”

Sellen said Cal/OHSA, which is responsible for enforcing workplace safety laws in California, has strong guidelines for companies on creating a violence free workplace. They also suggest companies have a workplace violence prevention policy and committee. Cal/OHSA also gives recommendations on how employees can report potentially violent situations to the company’s human resources department.

Sellen says workplace violence is preventable if companies take a more hands-on approach.

He offers these suggestions:

• Companies need to ensure that employees have workplace violence prevention training.
• Companies need to have an open line of communication to the supervisor so threats or strange behavior can be reported.
• Employees need to be active listeners. No threat should be taken lightly. Any threat should be reported to the Human Resources director or the supervisor.
• Employers need to make sure that employees have a venue to handle their grievances.
• Companies need to do in-depth background checks to screen out employees with violent histories.
• Companies planning to do layoffs can prepare employees for the change by offering counseling, career training and letters of recommendations.

ARGOSY UNIVERSITY LAUNCHES FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY PROGRAM; ORANGE COUNTY PROGRAM PREPARES STUDENTS FOR SPECIALIZED INDUSTRY

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Jan. 25, 2007 — Students in Argosy University’s master’s degree in forensic psychology program are, “entering a very specialized career field with great opportunities,” said Dr. Alex Yufik, department chair for forensic psychology. Argosy University/Orange County launched the new program this past month and is seeing increasing interest in not only the program, but the entire field.

“Forensic psychology, and the larger area of psychology and law, have both enjoyed steady growth during the last three decades. Graduates specializing in this area will have the training necessary for a variety of employment opportunities in the court system or with attorneys,” he said.

“Forensic psychologists provide evaluation and expert testimony regarding criminal forensic issues such as trial competency, waiver of Miranda rights, criminal responsibility, and drug dependency,” Yufik said. They also provide evaluation in civil cases and assess and treat inmates at correctional facilities, he said.

Yufik stated that forensic psychologists should not be confused with forensic pathologists, forensic toxicologists or criminal profilers made popular by television shows such as “CSI” and “Bones.”

Argosy University provides students with several different course options including classes held on campus, online and on weekends.

“Interest in the program has been high, but we are still accepting students for the last remaining available seats this semester.” Yufik stated the students in the class are a diverse group including recent college graduates, an attorney and professionals seeking a career change.

Yufik, who has taught at Argosy University for two years, has a doctorate in clinical psychology, with a specialization in forensic psychology, from George Washington University. He is also a practicing criminal defense attorney and a licensed clinical and forensic psychologist. Yufik also works with the State Bar of California’s Law Assistance Program, which provides assistance to attorneys with substance or mental health issues. He previously taught at American International University in Los Angeles, and still teaches at Cal State University, Los Angeles.

Argosy University/Orange County Student and Law Enforcement Professional Fulfills Educational Dream

(Santa Ana, Calif.) As a 22-year veteran of the Ontario, Calif. Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Paul Graff has surely seen his share of tough cases. But when it came to cracking the case to choose the right school for his master’s degree, Graff found the key in Argosy University/Orange County.
Graff is currently a student at Argosy University/Orange County and is pursuing a Doctor in Psychology in Clinical Psychology degree. In December 2000, while recuperating from an injury, Graff considered going to his personal injury solicitor in Cork and back to school to study for a master’s degree. Because of his past affiliation with joint law enforcement and education conferences, Graff was familiar with Argosy University/Orange County’s College of Education and Human Development, and later, with its American School of Professional Psychology.
“I had always wanted to return to school and further my education, with a focus and goal on assisting emergency service professionals with mental health issues, preferably as a police psychologist,” explains Graff. He was impressed that the curriculum at Argosy University/Orange County focused on the working professional, so he contacted them in his first step in achieving his goal.
Attending graduate school full-time and attempting to stay on track with a full-time job can be a tough balancing act, and Graff believes that Argosy University/Orange County’s education delivery model has served him well. Time is not the only thing Graff must negotiate.
His busy schedule includes serving as a hostage and crisis negotiator with the Ontario Police Department SWAT team, and he is actively involved in many professional organizations, including the American Psychological Association, Forensic Mental Health Association of California, the executive board of the California Association of Hostage Negotiators, and a peer support group with the Ontario, California Police Department.
As he finishes his course of study, Graff will apply for an internship with a specialty in forensic psychology. Upon completion of his Argosy University education, Graff wishes to pursue a career in police and forensic psychology, with an emphasis on providing mental health services to emergency service personnel.
“My experiences at Argosy University/Orange County have been rich and fulfilling, and I feel I have been given excellent training and education along the way. The school has afforded me the opportunity to pursue my dream, a dream that would have gone unrealized, if not for the school’s focus on providing a quality educational experience for the working student.”

DOCTOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION GRADUATE RECEIVES A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME CAREER OPPORTUNITY

(SANTA ANA, CALIF.) — When Dr. Neville Swaby, International Business graduate from Argosy University/Orange County received the opportunity to serve as an advisor to the president of Jamaica, he was extremely flattered. “I feel humble, yet honored,” says Swaby. “But the education I received from Argosy University has prepared me to take on such a challenge.”

The decision to attend Argosy University/Orange County was not one of great difficulty for Swaby – the school’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program offered everything that he was looking for in a school. “The DBA programs at Argosy University/Orange County combine sound academic theory and principles. The curriculum is well structured and fosters skills in research, communication, analysis, synthesis, problem solving and decision making. Argosy University/Orange County has excellent classroom and online collaboration with instructors who possess excellent industry knowledge,” says
Swaby.

Swaby has always strived for the best in his career, and his achievements represent the high standards he sets for himself. Along with being an advisor to Jamaica’s president, Swaby is also a financial manager and international business consultant, as well as an assistant professor at the University of Technology in Jamaica. “The structure and delivery format at Argosy University/ Orange County takes into account that working professionals have limitations on their time,” says Swaby. “The school’s DBA program is designed to offer a curriculum without the need for a student to take a break from his or her career.”

When asked how Argosy University/Orange County has aided his career, Swaby said, “Argosy University’s DBA program empowered me with the innovative leadership and critical analysis skills I need to successfully compete in today’s complex corporate environment. I utilized the multidisciplinary strategies acquired from professors in the International Business program to manage, to advise, and to coach others.”

Swaby serves as an excellent example of how successful hard work can make someone. He offers the following advice to other Argosy University students who are just as hungry for success: “Stay focus, study hard, and put in the extra time necessary in order to achieve your goal.”
