Sometimes it helps to share your goals and setbacks with others in similar straits. That's sort of the theory behind the Maryland CASH Campaign's financial coaching program that will start in June. The program will be open to 10 to 15 Baltimore-area residents who will set a goal and meet weekly for six weeks for group coaching so they can reach their target. Just as some people manage to shed pounds through weight-loss programs with group support, some people achieve financial goals in a group setting, too, said Robin McKinney, director of the Maryland CASH Campaign.  "Some prefer the accountability you have with a group.

Gay rights advocates and the state legislator who introduced legislation this session to ban so-called "gay conversion therapy" in Maryland have withdrawn the bill, saying they will instead pursue regulatory oversight of the controversial practice. "If we can do this without legislation, I am all about it," said Baltimore County Del. John Cardin, the bill's sponsor, in a statement Friday. "I am not interested in the glory. I'm interested in solving problems. " Cardin's bill would have banned mental health professionals, but not unlicensed church clergy or therapists, from engaging in efforts to change a youth's sexual orientation or gender identity.

A chain of more than 50 mid-Atlantic physical therapy clinics that rebranded itself Pivot Physical Therapy earlier this month has added five clinics in West Virginia, officials said Wednesday. The chain has 37 facilities in Maryland, some of which were known as Maryland SportsCare & Rehab.

Christopher Doyle says he doesn't think there is anything wrong with being gay, but he also believes he can help children and others rid themselves of "unwanted same-sex attractions" through therapy sessions in a tidy suburban home in Bowie. That has made the licensed psychotherapist the target of intense criticism over the years - so much so, he says, that he closely protects the address of the International Healing Foundation, the nearly 25-year-old nonprofit he runs. "Unfortunately, we get targeted by activists," Doyle said in the home on a recent morning.

Four out of five patients who said they had sex with their psychotherapists after therapy ended suffered psychological harm as a result, according to a study to be published this fall in the journal Psychotherapy.The finding may bolster an emerging movement to ban sexual relationships between therapists and clients "in perpetuity." While sexual relationships are currently forbidden in all states during therapy, only Florida has an in perpetuity ban. A few states limit such relationships for varying periods after therapy.

On a sunny summer day, 14-year-old Julianna Lupacchino is riding a horse on a Fallston farm. At first glance, the scene seems like nothing special - Harford County is horse country, after all - but at Chesapeake Therapeutic Riding, the occasion is very special indeed; Julianna more frequently uses a wheelchair. Julianna is one of 23 therapeutic riding clients at Chesapeake, where trained staff, volunteers and medical professionals use horses to facilitate physical and mental therapy.

William Smith's disease has grim milestones. At 2, the Gambrills triplet known as Mick couldn't walk or talk as well as his siblings. In kindergarten, he started losing language and motor skills.

This is Robin Williams Week in America; we are mourning the death by suicide of an extravagantly talented man who made us laugh and think. Here are some thoughts, starting with the words of an old friend whose father killed himself: "Suicide inflicts far more pain than it relieves. " My friend said this 20-plus years ago during a long overnight drive through Virginia, after the conversation had shifted to the guy topics of middle age: depression, alcoholism, women and children, and a mutual concern that we were in the process of becoming our fathers.

"Step therapy" is a perfect metaphor for corporate capitalism's continuing assault on human well-being (" Putting doctors back in charge of health care March 24). According to commentator Gene Ransom III, private health insurers can overrule a doctor's prescription by not paying for it until the patient has first tried a less costly therapy. In fact, however, the insurer can insist upon several less costly "steps" before paying for the prescribed medication, all in the name of cost containment -- or in other words, profit.

"Therapy," by David Lodge. 321 pages. New York: Viking. $22.95David Lodge is a funny man with a slight case of monomania. Most of his 10 comic novels are about middle-aged married men whose lives have gradually become unsatisfactory, and whose sex lives are similarly unsatisfactory; these men invariably contrive to have rip-roaringly hot extramarital affairs, and are thereby brought back to life. Lots of other amusing things happen in Lodge's books, but the equation Midlife Crisis + Illicit Fornication = Bliss is never very far from center stage.

It's a fairly simple concept: When ill, you seek effective treatment from your doctor. Despite efforts by some Maryland health insurers to insert themselves into the middle of the physician-patient relationship, lawmakers are poised to make this simple idea - that doctors are the correct people to decide treatment for their patients - a reality for Maryland patients. Important patient protection legislation is working its way through the Maryland General Assembly after clearing key hurdles in both chambers and should soon end up on the governor's desk.
