On Moment of Truth, Thursday, April 7, 2022 host Alvin Dawkins continues the conversation with Dr. Dicken Bettinger. (Catch Part 1 in the Moment of Truth Blogpost for March 24, 2022)

From the pandemic to a crisis of democracy, from political turbulence
to the climate crisis, how can we stay sane, be grounded in the
present moment, and in our mental health and well being – as we look
to see how to be in right action and response with and to what IS.

Dicken Bettinger, Ed.D., received his doctorate in counseling
psychology and has worked during his career as a licensed clinical
psychologist. Dicken’s entire career has focused on psychological
well-being. In 1986 he met Sydney Banks, who shared a profound new understanding
of the human mind called the Three Principles that unifies our
connection to a deeper intelligence called wisdom and our
psychological nature.

While living in Vermont, Dicken co-founded one of the first Three
Principles training, counseling, and education centers. Later Dicken
served as a senior staff at Pransky and Associates in La Conner,
Washington for 16 years, where he developed and led corporate and
university leadership trainings, team development, and executive
coaching. In 2012 Dicken founded his private practice, 3 Principles Mentoring.
He offers 4-day immersion retreats for individuals; practitioner
development; and advanced training programs. He enjoys leading group
seminars in the US and Europe. Dicken is the co-author of a book on
the Three Principles called “Coming Home: Uncovering the Foundations
of Psychological Well-being.”

Dicken has been happily married for 52 years. He has two adult
children and four adored grandchildren.  He enjoys photography,
hiking, canoeing, and exploring new places, especially in nature.
