Sadly, the ACPT has been canceled this year as a result of the current public health crisis. I was looking forward to meeting some of you there, but Will and company are investigating the possibility of holding it later this year. Stay tuned.
In anticipation of being at the tournament, I prepared a full-size puzzle this week since I was going to take the week off next week. I’m going to post that one today anyway, and I’ll return next week with a Brief Therapy puzzle. It’s a 4/5 difficulty and I hope you enjoy it.
In addition to following all the advice about washing your hands, not touching your face, etc., please take time to care for yourself psychologically. Consume enough news to keep abreast of the information you need to know, but please moderate your consumption. Turning the news off and solving some puzzles is just what this doctor orders. Be well, and take care of yourself and others. We’re all in this together. Peace.
I'm a husband, father, psychologist, musician, and crossword constructor living in Catonsville, MD. My puzzles have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times and its syndicates, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Andrews McMeel Universal Syndicate, and crossword apps such as the Redstone Crossword Puzzle App on iOS and Google Play. All of that means I've been published in every newspaper in the United States and many others around the world. And now I've been published here at Grid Therapy, which allows me the amazing freedom to let who I am shine through. Maybe it will occasionally rub you the wrong way politically. I don't know. But in this space I get to not care. I hope you enjoy your time here on the crossword couch! I'd love to hear from you if you have comments or suggestions. If you're interested in having a custom crossword puzzle created for your event or organization, email me at drtrent (at) gmail.com.
