SAMPLE WORKER'S COMPENSATION
REPORT (REDACTED WITH PSEUDONYMS)
Richard Mascolo, Ph.D.:
Sadly, Dr. Richard Mascolo passed away at home on March 29, 2022. He worked with us for 26 years. He was truly a brilliant independent thinker who greatly helped my understanding of psychometric testing, complex systems theory critical thinking, and epistemology in mental health. He introduced me to important literature and research of Paul Meehl and Scott Lillenfeld. He was as much and avid learner as teacher with a gentle and generous heart to all of us, who treated colleagues, staff and patients with dignity and compassion. We will miss you greatly, Richard.
Rest In Peace,
Your friend and colleague, Jim O'Brien
