Growing in Community with Deborah Kuzmin, LCSW
What is health? Is it just the absence of being sick or is there something more? What is freedom? Is it the absence of being locked up or is there something more?  What is peace? Is it simply the absence of conflict or is there something more? Welcome to the Something More hosted by Origins Behavioral Healthcare.  In this episode, we are so excited and lucky to talk with Deborah Kuzmin, LCSW. Deb is the Vice President of Clinical Services at Origins Behavioral Healthcare.  She is a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed psychotherapist.  Deb is married and their blended family includes 8 children ranging in ages from five to eighteen. Her mother lives with her family and they also have 3 dogs. She grew up in Cleveland, Ohio.  Deb is such an inspiration to us all. She has a true heart of gold. She is always looking for the very best in people and loving and serving them from her fullness. In this episode, Deb shares the journey of how she became a social worker, her love for helping others, and how her mom knew about a very young age she was meant to be a social worker.  We talk about giving from fullness, inspired change, and the importance of a healthy community.  Find yourself in a healthy community, it is the best way to grow.  We really are meant to be together.   Show Notes: [00:41] We are excited to welcome Deborah Kuzmin, LCSW, Vice President of Clinical Services [01:51] Deb is a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed psychotherapist.  [02:12] Deb is married and their blended family includes 8 children that live with them most of the time.  [03:30] Deb shares her journey of how she got where she is today.  [03:51] Her mother believed she was born to be a social worker because every night at bedtime she wanted to read Shel Silverstein’s book The Giving Tree.   [06:44] The reality is that you can have two people doing the same thing.  One is coming from a healthy place and the other is coming from a very unhealthy place.  When we are giving out of fullness that is good and right. [07:43] There is something so special about giving when you’re not expecting.   [09:07]  Service is a way we helped people stay in a recovered state.    [09:32] Deb has a desire and passion to really see the good and love for every patient.   [11:21] Two people, one experiencing the healthy and one experiencing the other can look exactly alike from the outside. [13:39] It doesn’t matter how many years, what our background is, how many letters we have behind our name, or that it is our first day.  We all need the support and guidance of continually learning and supervision.   [15:07] If we decide one day that we know what we know then we might not be doing the best treatment for the person sitting in front of us.
