Forums
 
 
Addiction Medicine - This forum is devoted to the discussion of topics related to addiction, and behaviours that can be viewed with an addictive model.
Affective Disorders - Considers clinical, research and theoretical issues related to mood disorders.
Anxiety Disorders - This Forum was established by three leaders in the study and treatment of Anxiety Disorders, Andrew Baillie (andrewb@crufad.unsw.edu.au)and Justin Kenardy (kenardy@psy.uq.edu.au)from Australia and Peter Perlman (pperlman@acpub.duke.edu)from the US. We are in their debt for their hard work. The PURPOSE of the Forum is to provide a resource to professionals studying or treating anxiety disorders. It is also for academics to teach and train the next generation of researcher and practitioners. Thus, colleagues may send out message to alert others about an upcoming conference, a new book just out, a recent discovery, or other important information. Sometimes, though, the discussion is rather informal and lacks focus. The overall purpose, though, is to collectively add to our collective knowledge about anxiety disorders. However, the Forum is not restricted to these profesionals, teachers, and scholars. Members of the general public are welcome to join us. They often have important insights often lost by professionals. At the same time, the purpose of the Forum is not to seek advice or reactions to personal problems. There are many, many excellent lists established for this purpose.
Attachment Issues - The ATACH Forum was created to facilitate the understanding, elaboration, testing, and application of Bowlby and Ainsworth's attachment theory and the sizable body of research it has generated.
Behavior Analysis - There is a very exciting new development on the Internet for those interested in behavior analysis, psychology, and the application of behavior principles to clinical issues as well as everyday life. Behav-An, the original and premier Internet list for behavior analysis that I started over 5 years ago has moved to the Behavioral Virtual Community (BVC) of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies. The list is dedicated to behavior analysis, incorporating discussion of basic research and clinical issues, especially the interrelatedness of behavior analysis to clinical psychology and psychiatry and other interdisciplinary areas. The list is also dedicated to basic discussion in behaviorism and society

Computers in Mental Health - CIMH is about the use and experience of computers within the field of mental health. It is not a discussion list about mental health. The topics discussed include billing and management programs, assessment and treatment programs, ethics, confidentiality, and sometimes we stray a little and discuss useful www sites, online psychotherapy etc but there are other lists that cover those areas in more detail. If you are looking for general mental health information this list is probably not for you.

Announcements are welcomed as long as the person making them does contributes to the ongoing discussion. It does not have a commercial agenda.
Object Relations Forum - "It would be a pity to predetermine the scope and emphases of this forum, but its inspiration is an interest in Klein, Post-Kleinians, Winnicott, Fairbairn, Guntrip and other and more recent writers in the object relations tradition within psychoanalysis. There is an existing list on Bion and there is an object relations web site, but there is no forum or web site specifically dedicated to this particular stratum of psychoanalytic theory. This forum and its associated web site are designed to fill this void."
