Case Study Writing in Today's PsychiatryNovember 1st 1998
The poet must remember that it is his poetry which bears the guilt for the vulgar prose of life, whereas the man of everyday life ought to know that the fruitlessness of art is due to his willingness to be unexacting and to the unseriousness of the concerns to his life. The individual must be answerable through and through: all of his constituent moments must not only fit next to each other in the temporal sequence of his life, but must also interpenetrate each other in the unity of guilt and answerability-M.M. Bakhtin, 1919
Bosnian Student Survivors at Home and in Exile: Findings and ReflectionsMarch 1st 1998

They welcomed the new school-based initiative of the adolescent mental health clinic in Sarajevo.
