Please share a little about yourself by way of introduction. What draws you to Depth Psychology and what are you looking for from this community?
I have solved the enigma of anorexia nervosa and have written a book about this, The Queen of Wonderland at a web site of the same name. However, there is a taboo against understanding what AX is about, hence I have a problem with getting interest in my work.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Greetings Malcom and a very warm welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us! This is an exciting time for the Depth Psychology Alliance, as we are expanding and adding many features to this forum.
As you may know, we now are made up of 4,101 members from all over the world. I hope that as you have explored the community you have noticed what a dynamic group of like-minded people are here, all who are deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from many walks of life--artists, writers, doctors, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared.
I see you have already personalize your profile photo, which is great. If you haven't discovered this already, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to another member's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like.
Here are a few quick links to front page items that may be of interest to you. The Multimedia Library contains talks, videos and articles that may be of interest to you. The Depth Insights e-zine has articles, poetry, and images from past issues. And, then we have the Events page which contains calls for papers, upcoming conferences, and workshops. If you are wanting or needing a push with your writing, I offer free daily writing prompts that you might find helpful.
You can also weigh in on the weekly depth discussions by clicking the image and quote at the top of the home page. And here's a link to help you navigate the site for your convenience. I look forward to seeing your posts and comments around the various forums.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you around the community.
Welcome aboard. I glanced at your web page and decided I needed to make some time to take a closer look at it. In the interim I look forward to your contribution of some of your thoughts in a blog or in the discussion format at DPA. Anorexia Nervosa huh? hmmm
