Think especially of all the "helpers" you know: therapists,
counselors, clergy, all of the caring people. They know other people
who want this kind of information - and they can use this information
for themselves and in their attempts to help others. Therapy groups,
support groups, church groups, book clubs and nearly every other kind
of organization you might belong to may be interested in our healthy
I need your comments!

HOW EXPERTS CAN HELP
Your knowledge and skill can help.
If you are an expert in an area that applies to this site,
and if you are willing to advise me for free, that would be great.
Some of the experts I know I could use are:
COMPUTER EXPERTS - Sometimes when my computer isn't working, people
who want my help are stranded for a while. I need someone who is willing
to answer what might seem to them to be basic computer questions to
make my life easier. (I'm not computer illiterate. I just need someone
to call when I get stuck.)
PUBLISHERS - By now you probably know that my major motivation is
my belief that: "Everyone deserves to know what therapists know!"
You can help me with this if you know new ways to get broad exposure
for the information at this site. I am currently working with an editor/agent
who is looking into this for me, but your ideas and personal contacts
can also help. I would like to publish without a whole lot of new
writing, but I do understand that much work would be needed to organize
the material differently, to make editing and formatting changes,
ADVERTISING - I've done a pretty good job of getting listed on search
engines and on most of the large psychology sites, but I'm sure there
are other free and easy ways to advertise that I'm not aware of. If
you know about such things, please teach me.
CARTOONING AND GRAPHICS - It would be fun to work with someone on
a few cartoon-like animations for this site, but, although I love
to draw designs and weird stuff (see Fun
Stuff ), I can't draw anything that looks real! If you think you'd
Enjoy working with me on such a project, please let me know.
YOUR TALENTS - Your particular talents might be just what this site
needs! If you have ideas about how you can share your talents, let's
talk about it!
What I want most is for you to PARTICIPATE.
Participate in any way you like.
Your opinions and your kindness will always be greatly appreciated.
