Online Etiquette Guide (Netiquette)
for Posting on the Alliance
Depth Psychology Alliance defines Depth Psychology as a set of psychological practices, ideas, and therapeutic methods designed to welcome in what has been repressed, dissociated from, or otherwise exiled from personal and collective consciousness and the prevailing culture.
We desire to provide our members an online space with a variety of opportunities to engage in conversations about what it means to thrive within the collective, while also striving to be self-reflective and committed to personal development. We are also committed to a particular kind and quality of communication that opens up topics for exploration according to tenets embraced within the broad field of depth psychology, as defined above.
We encourage members to share items and examples that are signs or symbols from the personal or collective unconscious of archetypal, hidden, or emerging material that we can all discuss and learn from. It is not surprising that in raising these issues, differing opinions, interpretations, and explanations will follow.
Whether you are posting something new on the Alliance, or responding to something another member has posted, before you post it, please ask yourself these questions around your own intentions and values:
Following is additional guidance for posting on the Alliance:
Note: It is impossible to anticipate every type of inappropriate action on the Depth Psychology Alliance, and we reserve the right to eliminate any post that in our sole judgment is unacceptable. We also reserve the right to block individuals whose posts continue to be unacceptable.

Thanks for posting this Craig. I have read it and accept it. It feels like a sound and inviting manner to approach dialogue here at the Alliance. Appreciate the work you and others have put into this.
Good afternoon Craig - thank you so much...this is wonderful and a welcomed resource! Peace + Love Linda
I think these are sensible, reasonable, and logical rules that promote intellectual curiosity while curtailing needless drama. Of course, I agree to them.
Seems reasonable and appropriate. Thanks for addressing this.
