A. Deep-Ecology
This mailing list is sponsored by The Institute For Deep
Ecology, and The Institute For Global Communication (EcoNet ®).

The Deep Ecology On-line Project is about encouraging the
use of communication technologies to facilitate discussion
among the deep ecology community. It is an opportunity to
discuss issues, books, and ideas, build resources, and meet
others interested in deep ecology.

Deep ecology is about transforming our way of life. It is a
movement of people waking up to the root causes of our
society's degradation of nature and peoples. As it seeks to
heal contemporary alienation from self, community, and the
Earth, deep ecology encourages a fundamental shift in the
way we experience nature and how we respond to the
environmental crisis.

Deep ecology arises from a belief in the essential value and
interdependence of all forms of being. Supporters of deep
ecology are committed to minimizing humanity's destructive
interference with the rest of the natural world and to
restoring the diversity and complexity of ecosystems and
human communities.

Ecopsychology is an emergin g, multidisciplinary field, where
psychology and ecology are used to examine the psychological
and spiritual roots of the environmental crisis.
Ecopsychologists view humanity as interdependent with all
other life forms, including Earth itself.

The ecopsychology mailing list is for sharing artful,
spirited and scientific discussion on a wide range of topics
related to this newly emergent field. This is an opportunity
to meet with peers for personal and professional development
through our inherent shared affinity with nature. An in-
depth exploration of our relationship to each other and to
Earth is encouraged, as well as a discussion of how to
develop ecopsychology into a thriving profession in
education and elsewhere.

E. Feedback
FEEDBACK is an email-based newsletter organized by Ron
Hogan, intended to keep its subscribers informed of new and
interesting books, dealing with issues that effect
contemporary society. In the next few months, I hope to talk
to you about such issues as race in America, national
identity (for a wide variety of countries), religion, human
sexuality, the pursuit of scientific knowledge...

I'll try to tackle a variety of issues through a combination
of reviews and author interviews. Perhaps, over time, you'll
see a pattern emerge out of my reading habits; interests may
begin to coalesce and return in cycles. Within those cycles,
however, I'm hoping to take on a broad range of material.

The list is one-way; FEEDBACK isn't a discussion group about
books. As I say, it's more of a newsletter in which I
periodically write to you and tell you about books that I
think are making interesting statements. Please feel free to
write to me with comments, suggestions, and so on, at:

M. Psychotherapists in Training (PIT-D)
Psychotherapists in Training has been created as a forum for
discussion for Psychotherapists in Training. Participation
by those not in professional training for the practice of
psychotherapy is discouraged, as is participation by those
in charge of professional training. Appropriate topics
include: challenges in supervisory relationships;
integration of theory, research and practice; challenges in
the role of new therapists; as well as emotional and
existential crises in professional training.

Also, I really want this list to be a source for mutual
support, and a place where folks can process their reactions
to clinical training.

We welcome anyone interested in the Rorschach and we have
beginners as well as experienced researchers and clinicians
on the list. Most of us are strong proponents of the list
and while discussion of validity issues is certainly in
order, this is not an appropriate forum to argue over the
Rorschach's value.

Conference announcements and reposts of pertinent material
from other lists are welcome. Brief discussions of other
projective techniques are also invited although the prim ary
interest here is the Rorschach. Posts of complete protocols
or score summaries as well as interpretations are also

This is not intended as a list for laypersons and
appropriate technical language is fine. Subscribers are
assumed to be psychologists, psychiatrists, graduate
students, or allied professionals.
