As a physician board-certified in Psychiatry, Addiction Medicine, Addiction Psychiatry, Sexology, Traumatology, and with credentials in Massage Therapy, EMDR, and as a Forensic Examiner, I have worked in almost every practice setting imaginable and with a broad variety of patients. Having been based from a hospital, community clinic, halfway-house residence, private office, Veterans Administration Medical Center, training institution, and doing outreach on the streets, I am clinically familiar with the behavioral challenges of children, adolescents, young adults, old adults, couples, families, and groups manifesting acute symptoms and exacerbations of chronic disorders, with and without chemical dependency, physical problems, and sociological impairments. I like to teach trainees, do interactive lectures, travel and experience ‘difference.’ It is thus that I have found myself a settled homeowner on Saipan, a Manhattan-sized island that, as part of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (U.S.), is the farthest-flung American overseas possession. Always the outsider; here among the various tan tones of complexion found among the indigenous of the western Pacific, I have experimented with several interventional strategies, both to establish rapport and some trust and also to start creating that unique and culturally competent treatment modality that will foster growth among my patients. Cognitive-behavioral approaches generally work better than insight-oriented ones because of the ‘here-and-now’ mindset of Chamorros, Carolinians, Yapese, Chukese, Pohnpeians, Kosraeans, and Filipinos who comprise the population base here. Let me briefly discuss one fascinating case. Twenty two year old Chamolinian woman, married and with three young children was involved in a minor motor vehicle accident. This accident was a spinoff of a more serious one primarily involving two other vehicles. In a large truck (Toyota T100), she was not hurt, and the two children riding with her were also unharmed.
