Discovering stuff and blogs in the blogosphere is an interesting experience. Googling or Dogpiling, as I prefer, for psychology blogs provides a limited list of the more well known blogs. However I like the way the discovery of many new blogs come through the author commenting on my postings or email in my inbox or a new listing on the blogroll of the other psychology blogs I read. There is a personal connection element to blogging I have discovered I really like.
A recent comment sympathising with my posting about creeping commercialisation in the blog world is a case in point. Annette is an Irishwoman with a psychodynamic focus on organisations. She has a very professional looking blog called: Interactions. She is living proof that Freud was wrong. Sigmund is quoted as saying the following about the Irish.
This is one race of people for whom psychoanalysis is of no use whatsoever.
Hat Tip: Modern Psychoanalysis.
While her blog focuses more on the business world she has interesting posts from time to time on psychotherapy.
This is set up as a discussion forum which is quite different from a blog setup. Topic headings are provided in a listing and you can dip into whatever takes your fancy. This forum has been around for quite a few years; however I only discovered it last year. For anyone using a CBT approach it keeps you up to date and thinking about things. James Pretzer who moderates the forum is very knowledgeable on CBT and keeps the postings regularly updated.
