(311) Spotlight: Find a Therapist

Post #311

Spotlight on a Great Blog

I have been perusing many therapy and mental health related blogs over the past few months and have found quite a number that I really like and have added to my blogroll.

Some of those blogs are of exceptional value to me — I feel compelled to call attention to them, as is the case with the blog I’m highlighting in this post. You may ask, “What qualifies as exceptional value?” Well, I value the following:

1) An overall focus on healing and moving forward — that doesn’t necessarily mean there is an absence of negative material; but rather, that it is balanced with solution-oriented insights;

2) Originality — while links to and reuse of enlightening material is good, original content is even better;

3) Relevancy — the majority of the posts are related to therapy and the therapeutic process;

4) Level of activity — the author(s) keeps the material fresh.

So, here is one blog that I feel qualifies as “highly valuable”:

Find a Therapist

This blog is a portal for therapeutic services . . . so, while it has a commercial purpose, it also provides great information about therapy in general. I have found valuable information here, over and over. Here is the introduction about themselves they publish on the blog:

“Find-a-Therapist, Inc. is the leading Web based provider of practice management services for mental health professionals and their clients. Since our launch on the Web in 1996, we have offered a solution to the problems of connecting people to the right therapist at the right time.

If you are so inclined, I encourage you to swing by this blog and enjoy!
