chronic_pain via http://www.ONElist.com/subscribe.cgi/chronic_pain
chronic_pain - a fully moderated peer support list

Chronic_Pain is a support resource for adults with problems 
resulting in chronic physical pain and an empahsis on helping 
to cope and 'have a life.' This is a peer-group list open to 
anyone with chronic pain and closed to *all* others.  
Commercial exploiters will be drawn & quartered.

The new 'Chronic Pain' list will be moderated to the greatest 
extent possible, but sometimes not fully moderated. This is 
being done because another active & valuable forum has shifted 
focus to broader political & other healthcare issues, and the 
need for peer support remains.

The moderator, who would like co-moderators to step up to 
the plate too, hopes to establish a self-sustaining forum 
for the support needed by others & himself.

The moderator & list-owner is Kenneth Turbin, who has 
faced chronic pain for a very long time & is a healthcare 
pofessional as well. It is important to understand that this 
is not a place for professional help, but for human understanding.

As there are a large number of individuals orphaned with this 
condition by the treatment establishment, should the list volume 
exceed manageability, sub-lists (sub-groups) will be formed for 
more personal interchange, & a more general parallel list will 
be made available to everyone as well.

DIVORCING on DIVORCING-subscribe@associate.com
Going through a divorce or been through one?

Welcome to Divorce Anonymous. If you are going through a 
divorce or have been through one, you are invited to 
put your thoughts and feelings down in writing -- in 
the safety of virtual anonymity.  Virtual has become a
kind of computer term.  Virtual reality; and that's the 
way life feels when a person goes through a divorce.  
Life becomes unreal. It's as if you are outside your 
body watching someone else.  It's a lonely path. Your 
friends don't want to talk    about it, your best friends 
likely just say what you want to hear, and your church 
may offer nothing but platitudes about the way a 
marriage ought to be.

Well... Welcome to the real world. Divorce is a reality; 
and all the pain and loss that goes with it.  Therapists 
will sometimes tell you to keep a journal as one of 
several methods to help recover from the trauma and 
grieving of divorce.  It is hoped that Divorce Anonymous 
can serve as a similar outlet and, perhaps, provide additional 
encouragement to help you on the road to recovery.  We 
only ask that you respect the feelings of others, keep 
in clean, and "what you see here, let it stay here."

Investigacion Etnografica en educacion

Preferred language: Spanish

The ethnographic research has meant a great reaction 
within the scientific field of the Social Sciences. 
But, once overcome the first moments of false confrontation 
in opposition to other research methods, we have reached 
a stagnation point: There is an imprecision in terms of
terminology, concepts, scientific foundations, theory and 
methodology which generates, in too many occasions, a 
kind of knowledge lacking contents.

The main aim of ETNOEDU is to guide the discussion of the 
scientific community interested in establishing some 
minimal procedural guidelines which ensure the necessary 
rigorousness for the application of this scientific method 
and organize a database about ethnographic research within
the field of the Social Sciences and, in particular, referred to
the school and educational fields.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease and CJD Voice
Cruetzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is a horrendous fatal 
brain-deteriorating disease for which there is no treatment 
or cure.  Often the victim first presents with psychological 
symptoms.  Also, some people, such as those who received 
human pituitary growth hormone which puts them at higher risk of
getting CJD, have to live with that hanging over their heads.  
People in either of these groups and their families may find 
themselves in a therapist's office.  Often CJD victims die 
at home and require home care.

CJD is more common than reported. In one study of Alzheimer 
patients 13% when autopsied were found to really have CJD.  
Also, it is infectious and can be spread by surgical instruments 
since normal sterilization does not kill the infectious agent.
Whether it is spread by blood is controversial.  However, many 
vaccines, such as measles-mumps-rubella and allergy shots, and 
in vitro fertilization cultures have blood products.

CJD Voice is an international e-mail discussion group.  
Most members have lost a loved one to CJD or currently have 
a loved one with CJD.  Other members are people who have 
taken pitutiary growth hormones which puts them at highter
risk of getting CJD.  It provides support to these people.  
CJD Voice also provides education about CJD and works to 
increase research funding for CJD so treatments and a cure 
can be found.  The CJD webpage has a message board, chat
room, links to other websites with CJD information and a 
list of CJD researchers accepting donations.

Jim Mancuso Web Pages
(A message from James C. Mancuso, Ph.D., Psychology Professor
Emeritus, University of Albany, Albany, New York, May 22, 1998.
Please assist with distribution.  Thank you.):

     Over the past years I have been working on an effort to
interpret the psychological processes of persons at the
interface of two cultures.  I have used a personal construct
psychology analysis of those persons whom other writers have
discussed as "marginal persons."

     I believe that a useful interpretation of persons at the
interface of two cultures must become more productive than those
which have been offered in the past, and I believe that personal
construct psychology -- which is compatible with modern
constructivist cognitive psychology -- offers a sound approach
to producing a more fruitful analysis.

     I have used Italian-Americans as the model case, since I
have built up a knowledge base on Italian-American history.
Further, it does make a very good case.  The offspring of
Italian immigrants have done very well in The USA, despite the
general illiteracy and poverty of their forebears.

     I have decided that I would not attempt to seek out
publishers, etc.  I am too advanced in years to spend my time on
that process, particularly since I have little confidence that
reviewers will resonate with personal construct psychology
approaches. Also, of course, I am not sure that a reader, no
matter his orientation, would find my analysis to be cogent and

     Therefore, I decided to publish my material to the

     The addresses of the two papers I have so far published to
the web are:
     (1) http://www.capital.net/~mancusoj/suzzpell.html and
     (2) http://www.capital.net/~mancusoj/torgrevu.html

Online Psychology Article Listing (OPAL)


I am writing to announce a new internet resource for the 
psychology community.  I've seen your web site of 
psychology links and I hope you will include this 
new resource in your list.


OPAL (Online Psychology Article Listing) is a searchable 
index of full-text online articles related to psychology.  
OPAL is a free resource that seeks to increase the 
dissemination and utilization of online research in 
psychology.  It is not a hosting service, but simply
a searchable database of abstracts and reference 
information that provides links to the original article.  
OPAL is different from existing resources in several ways:

* OPAL is searchable (by abstract, title, author, or year)
* OPAL only includes articles whose full text is available online
* OPAL only contains scholarly (empirical or review) articles

OPAL is in its early stages and at this time contains 
about 100 articles.  With participation from journals and 
individuals that make articles available online, the database 
will continue to grow.

I look forward to any feedback or suggestions about OPAL.

Social Psychology Network

Social Psychology Network now has a customized search 
engine that will permit full-text searching of:

   --Web pages from all 3,500 links listed in the network
   --PhD Programs in Social Psychology (e.g., by keyword)
   --More than 400 social psychologist home pages

This page contains a list of U.S. and Canadian clinical psychology 
programs rank-ordered by how well their graduates performed on the 
Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology between 
1988 and 1995 (adapted from an article in the APS Observer).

The Online Psychology Career Center has added several new links, 
including a page showing the relative size of the job market 
within subdisciplines of experimental psychology (something students 
often wonder about).  The data on this page are based on job 
advertisements appearing in the APS Observer Employment Bulletin 
between 1991-1996 (adapted from an article in the APS Observer).

Social Psychology Network (SPN) currently receives an average 
of 1,450 page accesses each day and recently passed a cumulative 
total of 1/2 million page accesses.  Please consider adding a 
link to the new resources above or to any other SPN pages that 
might interest your visitors, and please feel free to suggest 
pages of your own that you would like to see featured in Social 
Psychology Network.  I am hoping to expand SPN significantly over
the summer and would welcome your input.

Answering Earth's Call:  
Integrating Mind and Nature with Open Hearts

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.

This list is moderated.


Ecopsychology is an emerging, 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. By reawakening this consciousness, we act 
effectively to care for the Earth and all life.

Trauma Information Pages
The Trauma Information Pages have moved.

The correct URL for this site is:


This new domain name is now the permanent home of 
this important mental health resource for emotional
trauma, PTSD, and disaster mental health.

Please update your links, and accept my apology 
for this inconvenience.

The new address features a faster local search engine
(with detailed help file and search examples), as well
as easier navigation from sub-pages. There are also 
many added links since the February update.

The Trauma Information Pages site concentrates on 
emotional trauma, including Posttraumatic Stress Disorder 
(PTSD) and disaster mental health response, whether 
following individual traumatic experience(s) or a large
scale natural disaster.

The primary target audience is clinicians, researchers, 
and students interested in traumatic-stress, but 
information and supportive links are provided for trauma 
survivors (and friends) as well.  Much of the 
comprehensive information at this site can easily be 
translated into five foreign languages using 
Alta Vista's translation service.  This award-winning 
site began on 19 April 1995 (one month after the 
Oklahoma City bombing), and is updated monthly by 
a licensed psychologist specializing in emotiona 
trauma and related issues.

Working with Older Adults

APA has developed a information booklet for psychologists 
and other mental health practitioners working with older 
adults.  The 40-page booklet includes information on 
demographic realities of the increasing older population, myths 
and realities of aging for older Americans, psychological 
problems experienced by some older adults, psychological 
assessment and interventions for older adults, and broad 
professional issues of concern to psychologists working with 
older adults.  The booklet is intended for practitioners 
without specialty training in geropsychology.
The seven-person workgroup that developed this booklet 
in 1997 was convened by APA President Dr. Norman Abeles.
The APA publication is "What Practitioners Should Know 
About Working With Older Adults."  To obtain your free copy,
