Pedro from Counselling Connection (CC) sent through some details on recent updates to their site. The full list of updates are detailed in this post, but most notably, Pedro has organized a large proportion of the CC content into “Post Series” making it easier for readers to access groups of posts in specific topics.
CC have also their latest e-book – AIPC’s Counselling Dilemmas
This 52-page publication showcases 18 professionally-written counselling dilemmas, followed by comments from qualified counsellors, psychologists and mental health professionals. AIPCâ€™s Counselling Dilemmas eBook has been divided into three main categories: Relationship and Family; Ethics, Values and Boundaries; and Situations of Risk.
Over at PsychAntenna I have provided a brief update on some work I (and the cre8d-design) team have been putting in on a database of psychology, mental-health and neuroscience RSS feeds. RSS is one of my passions and I have a strong desire to see more psychologists using RSS as a way of keeping up-to-date with developments in the field. Never one to sit still I am pushing to have the largest publicly available collection of psychology-related RSS feeds ready before the end of the year!
Counselling Connection is a favourite here at PsychSplash. Editor Pedro is generous and enthusiastic and always keen to promote the work the AIPC does. The blog offers a lot of free content and subscribing to the blog entitles readers to access special offers like this one:
I have featured Medical News Today previously on PsychSplash. They provide an extensive medical news service with multiple mental health and psychological disorder categories. Browsing recently, I noticed the front page has changed, the navigation has tightened up and a range of new (i think!) sections and tools have been launched including health videos and health professional-specific sub-sites (e.g., psychiatry). The same extensive range of news categories still exist with RSS feeds available for all sections.Â A very neat and attractive facelift indeed.
Doing the rounds on a few blogs is a link to this WikiHow article on how to make an anatomically correct brain cake. I struggle to bake a round cake that doesn’t have some kind of serious deformity. I’d be frightened to apply my cake making skills to such a delicate operation!
Counselling Resource (featured previously) has just had a facelift and is sporting a clean and efficient new interface. Counselling Resource, by Dr Greg Mulhauser has always been an extensive and ever-growing source of information for consumers of psychological knowledge. It is also an excellent starting place for online therapists to obtain resources, tips, supervision around growing their online practice (check out the “training and supervision” and “in practice” sections). I know Greg has been working on the changes for a while now, and even consulted with his trusty “International Advisory Board” of which I am a member on some of the changes before going live. Wishing Greg all the best with the new vibe, and I encourage all readers to check out the new site. It is definitely an improved user experience.
