Default Welcome to Self-Help Ideas and Goal Setting!

The late Clay Tucker-Ladd, Ph.D. is the author of the fantastic free online book, Psychological Self-Help. Clay and I had been colleagues for many years, and I worked with him as the first self-help book ever to be published online. It's a great, in-depth work.

This forum is not just about offering support to one another, but to share experiences and techniques that have helped you out with specific issues and areas in your life.

We've also expanded the forum to help with goal setting as well. Set your goals publicly here, and then get tips on how to stick with them, even when you feel the most frustrated with reaching your goals.

Welcome!
DocJohn

I would strongly encourage you to go read a chapter of the book that you identify with. It will help ground the discussion somewhat and ensure everyone is on the same page.

This is a great idea!!! YAY CLAY!!!

Excellent book. I don't know how I found it, but I've been passing around the web site to friends & people in support groups & people at the local Mental Health Assoc. plus NAMI. Thanks for the reminder to go back & read some more.--Suzy

Thanks for the welcome, DocJohn.

It will take me a few days to catch on to some of the complexities on this forum. But it is an exciting possibility and I thank you for making it possible.

To all the Welcomers:

Thanks for the warm welcoms and sometimes poetic comments. I'd like to welcome each of you with equal enthusiasm.

Several of you promised to read more of my book. You probably know that it is 1750 pages and growing. It may be better to think of it as a reference book that covers many topics. So, much of the book can be covered by just reading about topics you want to know about right now. Topics of interest can be found by going to the Chapter that interests you and then look for specific topics of interest in the Chapter Index. Or better yet, go to the search engine at the top of any page and type in the topic you are looking for.

For our purposes on this forum, it is probably best to discuss "how to change this behavior or feelings or thoughts" as if we were discussing a treating some problem rather than discussing the topics covered in a given Chapter. So, bring some problem to the forum that seems to be resisting change.

Please don't expect me to come up with the answers. My wife gave me a nice plaque that quotes Michelangelo: I am still learning.

Clay
