Good Morning REBT Mates!
Look for some very cool new features coming very soon!
This blog has always been a labor of love, an effort to give something back for all the benefits I have gained from CBT-REBT, and to create a well-organized, searchable, categorized archive where people can learn about the specific issues of CBT-REBT that interest them. I am really pleased with our blog so far, we get good page views, but are not attracting the type of participation I had hoped for that will allow our community to grow organically. Oh, well. Much of that is probably due to my amateur skill set as a blog designer and failure to introduce design elements that will get members more interested in leaving comments and becoming guest authors. I am learning, but there is a lot to learn.
However, new changes are in the works that will not only increase participation, but add value here in other ways as well. A few highlights
1. FORUM : We will be installing an excellent discussion forum (message board). On the one hand, forums and blogs are different animals, different venues, different media, one sense they are sort "strange bedfellows," but on the other, forums lend themselves to more thoughtful discussion than social media and they may provide a feeling of community and safety that blogs do not. We think you will enjoy and find it a valuable addition.
2. QUICK Q & A: We have found an excellent Q&A plugin that should make it easier and better for a lively exchange of idea. I think you will like it.
3. PROVIDER DIRECTORY : This one we are really excited about. It is going to be a world-wide directory of CEBT-REBT therapists, coaches, educators seminars, workshops, probably training programs as well. We will welcome providers from other approaches and schools of psychology as well. We want to particularly encourage listings form providers who do coaching/therapy at a distance or online via Skype, et al. This is going to be a robust, dynamic directory that will make it easy to find an appropriate provider closest to you, and baring that, someone you can work with online in some way. Stay tuned. This is a very important and exciting project.
