Best of Our Blogs

Happy Earth Day! And Happy Early Easter! We’ve got lots to celebrate as tomorrow is also our new monthly, “Ask the Therapist Live event” on Facebook.

Here are the details:

  • When? Saturday, April 23 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm ET (11:00 am – 1:00 pm PT).
  • What? Our Live event is your chance to “Ask the Therapist” your questions on everything from career to relationships.
  • Who? Our therapists from the Ask the Therapist page, me and you!
  • Where? Facebook. Read below for more information on how to join our Psych Central Ask the Therapist group to participate in tomorrow’s event.
  • How? Ask your question as a Facebook update and our therapists will respond in the comments.

This time I created an Psych Central Ask the Therapist group, which will help keep things a little more private. But of course anything on the internet is never 100% private. Keep that in mind for tomorrow’s event.

To join, click on this link or do a search for Psych Central Ask the Therapist group in your Facebook search box.

I will be closing the group when the event begins to keep the questions and answers private so make sure to join before 11 am PT and 2 pm EST on Saturday.

Also, if you want to avoid getting a continuous stream of updates in your inbox, make sure to edit your notification settings. I explain how to do so on our group page. See you there!
