Brugges

Yesterday I had the honor at presenting at the First International E-Mental Health Summit 2009 in Amsterdam, where I’ve spent the week exploring the wonderful cities of Bruges and Amsterdam in my first visit to northern Europe. It …

  1. Hi John,
    I do hope that you will be our ‘ace’ reporter, supplying us all with the new and innovative evidence-based developments, research studies that exist in the field of e-mental health as we know it today. –
    Enjoy your ‘jolly’ I mean research and have a safe journey home.

    Take care

  2. Hi John,
    I would be really interested in reading some feedback regarding a few of the presentations;

    “The future of sustainable mental vitality”. Heleen Riper, PhD and Lucien Engelen.

    “Guided Internet treatment”. Prof. Gerhard Andersson.

    Are they offering any podcasts?

    If you get the chance visit the “Van Gogh” Museum; Paulus Potterstraat 7
    1071 CX Amsterdam, you will not be disappointed.

    Regards
    Dawn Pugh

  4. How nice to see a picture on a blog I follow, of the town where I’m living in! :o) I live in Bruges and yes, I agree, it’s a wonderful place to see. I still like it here very much, since I came here +/- 3 years ago. I hope you had a good time in Bruges and maybe you have eaten the wonderful Frensh (actually, Belgian) fries of one of the 2 green frietkotjes (Chips stands) on the marketplace (the one of the picture)…

    greetings from Bruges!

    “Hi, Lucy. Part Two:

    As to best of web from PsychCentral, Grohol went over to the dark side some time ago. He has been Dawdy’s chief legitimizer since day one. Grohol gets a weird kick out of hanging out with the bad boys. Grohol frequently cites Dawdy as an authority, and at least twice he has bashed me citing Dawdy as the authority and linking to his blog and not mine. Screw that for a joke. Grohol can burn in hell. In July, Grohol actually handed out an outstanding journalism award to Dawdy.

    You and I and other intelligent people can see right through Dawdy. For instance: Dawdy spent two years telling people about this Zyprexa story that HE worked on. All he did was re-report a NY Times piece. Grohol fell for it and handed him an award. Where Grohol gets off thinking he can hand out awards is beyond me. Like Dawdy, he doesn’t know his ass from his elbow, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t get out in the real world.

    Grohol tries to set himself up as the middle-of-the-road commentator, which is a lie. At least with Dawdy, what you see is what you get. Grohol should just declare himself in the antipsychiatry camp once and for all, but then his advertisers would desert him.”
