Welcome to the Community Site for Psychodynamic Thinking.
This site is hosted and managed by APPCIOS to promote learning, sharing and collaboration amongst everyone interested in understanding how human beings relate to one another.
If you are new to this Site, you may want to know where to go for important information. This page provides a quick guide.
The Site has been designed to offer different spaces to fulfil different requirements.
Go here to find out about our private and public rooms, groups and spaces, and what each of them can provide.
But to get the most out of this Site you'll need to create your own account and log in. That's easy to do, and you don't need to be a member of APPCIOS to do it. But you may need some help along the way.
So here's a whole page devoted to instructional videos to help you to create an account, log in, leave your comments and post your own articles.
Go to the tab marked My Groups for a list of all the groups, spaces and pages you can access.
Go the tab marked Groups to Join for a list of private member groups, private discussion groups and private blogs.
If you want to join these you'll need to ask permission by sending an email to the administrator of that group. A series of clicks should get you to an email form. Don't forget to mention the name of the group you're trying to join.
