    The more, the merrier. We GoodTherapy visitors could help by inviting as many people as we can to this. Let’s all support this excellent website and help spread the word. Digg it, Tweet it, add it to Facebook etc. I will be doing whatever I can to give back.

    That’s a very valuable topic to kick these free web conferences off with too! We could all certainly do with knowing how to pick a suitable therapist. Thanks for introducing this initiative.

    I have always had the theory that you just know when something is right but this may offer more insight than just that of intuition. Sounds good for anyone who might be thinking of adding a therapy regimen to their lives.

    This is a great way to educate people. Some people do not know or care much about therapy and those who do , do not know how to find a therapist that is good for them. This kind of a thing is bound to help.

    It would be fantastic to have some guidance before selecting a therapist. How can an ordinary person judge who’ll be good to work with and who won’t? I guess we’ll find out!

    I was thinking the same thing Elle. It can be very tough for a person to judge especially so when he or she is having trouble , which is the reason why he or she is looking for a therapist in the first place.

    Excellent! I’ve marked it on my calendar and told the family to give me peace during the web conference. My spare room that houses my computer will be out of bounds for the duration of it. I don’t want to miss a thing!

    I attended this conference and thought it was excellent. The information was thorough, thoughtful and balanced.
    Noah, I think the reason there were not more questions is that you covered the bases so well and so clearly that a ton of questions weren’t needed.
    I appreciated the personal anecdotes you included; those are always fascinating to hear about.
    Kudos and thank you!
