LPHA: what a concept!
When I was in a staffing, new forms were passed out after this particular meeting. There was a line for me to sign that ended with LPHA. That was a foreign concept to me. "What is this?", I asked. I was told that it stood for "Licensced Practitioner of the Healing Arts". What a wonderful concept. I thought I was a physician and a doctor but the term "practitioner of the healing arts" had connotations of what I did for a living was to be gentler, more compassionate, more sensitive to another's need and pain. Indeed, I trained and was taught a healing art. What a wonderful concept. It is my prayer that God helps me to be more compassionate, gentler and sensitive.
