I posted the same type of message in the asylum, so sorry for the repost. Just in case my posts in the other forums have not been read I will introduce myself really quick. My name is Mark and I am a grad school student at Emerson college in boston. Currently I am in a class studying online communities, and I chose OT as the community that I would study. I understand that the nature of this forum is very serious, and I do not want to belittle that or expose anybody that does not want to be known. All I am curious about it if you have had a problem (dont care what is was) and if OT helped you deal with it? Was OT better than your offline peers? Was OT better than traditional help (social workers, shrinks, etc.)? Any reason to choose OT rather than other avenues? I will only include the information that you want me to include, if that means none, then I will say that userX said "this is..." Feel free to contact me on here or at my e-mail [email protected] I would like to thank you all in advance for the information that is provided and of course if any of you would like any additional information please contact me.
