misconstrued as on-line psychotherapy.

While this is not meant to be on-line psychotherapy, we hope
to provide the public with a glimpse of how mental health
professionals might respond to particular real-life

H. The MedInstrument Network
A new Online network to increase the awareness of medical
equipment, instruments, products, and services. The
MedInstrument Network contains a growing database of
manufacturers that supply almost any medical-related
products and services. Hospitals, biomedical researchers,
clinics, and distributors can access the MedInstrument
Network free to locate their medical product needs whether
it's pacemakers or mRNAs.

My goal is to house all medical companies under one roof in
order to facilitate the healthcare professional and allow
them more time for life-saving matters. As a student doctor,
I understand that time is precious and would like to see
healthcare professionals and researchers take advantage of
this service. If there are companies that are related to the
medical or healthcare field and would like to make a
presence on the internet, please visit our site or send e-
mail to: for more information.

My purpose is not to charge outrageous fees to deter medical
companies away from the internet, but to facilitate the
presence of the medical industry on the internet by
providing the lowest guaranteed rate.

PREP the Psychology Preprint Bulletin Board is a FREE
Psychology Preprint Bulletin Board; a free public service
bulletin board for authors of academic Psychology papers.

PREP is committed to the principle that all bona fide
psychology research is entitled to immediate, free,
worldwide publication.

Physics, Math and Chemistry (the hard sciences) have been
operating free preprint boards for several years and are
posting thousands of papers per month. Until the
establishment of PREP (the 1st preprint board in
Psychology) this type of service has not been available to
Psychology authors/researchers.

If you have any papers ready for journal submission,
currently in submission, awaiting publication, drafts, works
in progress or rejected papers- we urge you to take
advantage of this simple, convenient method of circulating a
PREPRINT of you paper to the Psychology community.

PREP is designed to handle text and illustrations in a
simple "click and read" format. No specialized equipment,
software or computer expertise is required--we optically
scan all illustrations free of charge.

If publication of your work is dragging on and on, you can
have your paper, even a preliminary draft with hand
drawings, in world wide circulation, free of charge, in 48


PS: Please do not email us for submission instructions.
Complete step by step instructions are on the PREP page.

A. Group Therapy Resources
Please help me find resources for brief focal psychotherapy.


* Physically ill (e.g., post-mastectomy, handicapped, AIDS)
* Psychiatrically dx'ed (e.g., PTSD, affective, anorexia)
* Behavior control (e.g., abusive, delinquent, gambler)
* Situational (e.g., parents of schiz, bereaved, victims)
* Location-based (e.g., school, inpatient, halfway house)
* Demographic (e.g., gay, elderly, cultural)


* Community agencies, self-help orgs ...
* Bibliotherapy, pamphlets, educational materials...
* Assessment forms, intake & outcome instruments...
* Lists of goals, objectives, problems, plans...
* Trainers, experts and consultants; local, national...
* National organizations, symposia, courses...
* Studies of efficacy, articles on leadership technique...
* Supplementary handouts, slides, videos...
* Electronic forums, newsgroups...
* Anecdotes, illustrative experiences...
* Reference works, bibliographies...

For example, what's a good source of pamphlets and what's a
good short story or novel to hand out to a group of men with
gender dysphoria? Where can someone find extra training for
leading short term group psychotherapy on the workplace
stresses of black white collar women?

I'd appreciate any leads or advice. Anyone who has put
together questionnaires or presentations for their own
groups, please tell me about it and maybe I could refer to
that material in the book.

B. Internet Neuroscience
A group of colleagues and I are to establish a Web based

capacity (administration, reviewing, programming, HTML
authoring, editorial board etc) please contact Ian Pitchford

C. Mental Health Organizations and Meetings
At the URL below is an improved version of the Mental Health
Organization and Meeting calendar resource, listing over 500
organizations and loads of symposia and meetings, accessible
by date, by city (NEW!) or by sponsoring organization name.
I have added an automatically generated alphabetizer to make
things easier.

It would be nice to list them by topic area if anyone would
be willing to help classify the meetings and organizations.
I'd appreciate suggestions for improving this WWW resource.

From: Myron Pulier, MD

D. PTS D Group Therapy Manuals
Through informal conversations with clinicians, we have
noted a consistent interest in group treatments for PTSD and
common comorbidities (e.g. depression, substance abuse,
sleep disturbance, anger, personality disorders, anxiety
disorders) and in having access to manuals with detailed
protocols that could be used for this purpose. We are aware
that many of our colleagues have not only developed group
treatment approaches (e.g. related to anger management,
sleep disturbance, PTSD memories) but have written manuals
that would assist others to start similar groups.

The National Center for PTSD Education Consortium believes
there is a substantial interest by other clinicians in
obtaining such materials if they could easily identify and
access the information. Our desire is to assist in this
effort by establishing a library of treatment and
psychoeducational group manuals that would be made available
to clinicians in specialized VA-based PTSD treatment
programs, and to other trauma specialists and clinicians on
a case-by-case basis. To accomplish this goal, however, we
need your assistance. If you have developed such a manual
and are willing to share it with others, we would appreciate
it if you would send a copy for the library to:

Please make certain that the name of the author(s) of the
manual is clearly displayed on the materials, along with any
institutional affiliation. When we receive requests for the
manual, we will take responsibility for duplication and
distribution to the interested party.

If you have developed such materials and are willing to
share them with interested clinicians, but would prefer to
be contacted directly by interested parties, we would still
appreciate having a copy of the manual for our library for
information purposes. It will not be duplicated for
distribution and all interested individuals will be referred
directly to you. We also realize that some manuals may have
been copyrighted and, therefore, will not be obtainable
through the library. Requests for these manuals would be
referred directly to the publisher or contact person.
However, we would like to have descriptive information about
your published materials as well.

Finally, if you are aware of others who may have written
manuals for their groups, we would appreciate their names,
addresses, and phone numbers so that we might contact them.

E. Self-Help & Psychology Magazine & Newsletter
Online (websites, newgroups, email lists) and offline
resource lists (books, bibliographies, self-help
organization addresses, hotline telephone numbers, etc.) are
being sought by Self-Help & Psychology Magazine &
Newsletter. Our resource lists typically average 15-20
lines. They are featured in our free newsletter distributed
via email.

Please submit your compilations of resources for either the
general population or professional community. For example,
we are interested in giving our readers lists they can use
to find support for specific problems they face (websites
related to seasonal affective disorders, chrone's disease,
ADHD, etc.). Another example might be online support email
lists organized by topics (fibro-m, depression-l)
Professional resource lists might range in scope from
offline journal article bibliographies to online websites
organized by topic.

Your resource lists will be posted in our free email
newsletter (available upon request only) and possibly in the
magazine. Professional resources will most likely be posted
in our online SH&P magazine's Professional Corner. In
exchange, we will happily acknowledge you as the source (if
you'd like).
