Guide to the Internet for Psychotherapists and Psychoanalysts

Robert M. Young

The First Thing to say is that this document is already becoming obsolescent. Things change so fast on the internet that anything that is in print, by which I mean hard copy like a book or periodical, will be likely to be at least partly out of date by the time it appears. The thing to do is to subscribe to a service which will tell you about new things and changes to old things as they occur. Fortunately, there is just such a service (called an egroup). It's called human-nature-info, and you can subscribe to it for free by sending an e-mail with no message to

You will thereafter (until you unsubscribe) get an email whenever anything of interest to psychoanalysts or psychotherapists turns up on the internet. The accumulating archive of the egroup is a listing of sites, forums, egroups and other relevant information available on the internet, as well as useful information about other things on the net which you may find helpful, for example, search engines which will find things for you, and anything else I think people who practice and/or study psychoanalysis or psychotherapy might appreciate knowing about.

I have written this essay to make the internet accessible to psychoanalysts and psychotherapists. Some are already well versed in it, but they are a small minority. Many know that there is stuff on the internet of potential interest to them, but they are not sure how to find it. Others know a bit about finding it but are anxious or unsure and are therefore prone to give up easily. My aim is to make it easy. I'll begin with a short exposition of what you will need. In terms of machines (hardware) and programs (software), then I'll move on to ways of finding things and close with some lists of things I know about which you may want to make use of.
