                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
             moderated group sci.psychology.psychotherapy

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the change in
status from unmoderated to moderated for the Usenet newsgroup,
sci.psychology.psychotherapy. This is not a Call for Votes (CFV);
you cannot vote at this time.  Procedural details are below.

Newsgroup line:
sci.psychology.psychotherapy	Practice of psychotherapy. (Moderated)

RATIONALE: sci.psychology.psychotherapy

Since this newsgroup was created a year ago, it has acted as a
dumping ground for any miscellaneous article an author feels is
appropriate, without regard to the group's charter. Instead of
becoming a niche for professionals and laypeople alike to discuss
psychotherapy techniques and similar topics, it has become a foggy
mirror of sci.psychology.misc, hosting discussions on topics ranging
from sex with children to the ever-popular scientology topics.
Personal e-mail, changing followups in threads, and posting the
charter on a regular basis has done little to dissuade the
off-charter topics that regularly appear and overwhelm the newsgroup.

Individuals, too, have used this and similar groups as a soap-box
in which to preach their particular gripes against psychotherapy,
or more generally, science and psychology. While certainly criticism
of psychotherapy is appropriate to this forum, dozens of articles
posted every day from the same people also are overwhelming the
group's ability to sustain and propose other appropriate topics.
Dozens of professionals who have contacted me in the past year
have stated their desire to utilize the forum for discussions of
psychotherapy topics, but are fearful to do so because of the flames
and personal insults they have observed on it.

It is therefore proposed to moderate this newsgroup with a broad
range of moderators, to help reduce the overwhelming noise on
the group and bring it closer to the intentions of the original
charter.

CHARTER: sci.psychology.psychotherapy

This newsgroup is for the discussion of all different modalities of
psychotherapy, their efficacy, and their acceptance within the
psychotherapeutic community. All forms of psychotherapy as
practiced by a wide range of disciplines (psychology, psychiatry,
marriage and family counseling, social work, etc.) are
welcomed here, as are all clinicians in varying fields. Emphasis
is placed on discussing psychotherapeutic methods, rather than
research or theory, since these latter topics are covered in separate
newsgroups.

Examples of appropriate topics for this newsgroup might be discussion
of techniques used in interpersonal therapy, cognitive-behavioral
therapy, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy, marriage and family
therapy, client-centered therapy, rational-emotive therapy, etc.
Ethical issues in practice as well as specific psychotherapeutic
techniques may also be discussed. Case discussions, as long as
anonymity is ensured, are also welcome. Participants are reminded
always to be careful of confidentiality and ethical issues when
posting such questions.

Individuals seeking help or information on a specific emotional,
psychological or related physical problem or disorder
may also post questions about specifical psychotherapeutic
techniques and treatments. Individuals are encouraged, however,
to seek out answers to these types of questions elsewhere first.

Advertisements for any products, as well as discussions on:
psychopharamalogical interventions, whether psychology is a
"science" or not, scientology topics, whether X behavior is
"normal" or not, and on any research or theoretical areas
outside the purview of psychology or psychotherapy would remain
on other existing newsgroups and are examples of topics that are
inappropriate for this group. "Flaming" and personal insults are
also not appropriate to this newsgroup.

Moderation Guidelines:

This is a loosely moderated group, moderation mainly being
used to screen out irrelevant, non-psycotherapy articles, personal
attacks and arguments, irrelevant political debate, and other
topics as warranted.

The purpose of moderation on sci.psychology.psychotherapy
is create a collegial forum for the discussion about
psychotherapy -- in all forms and as practiced by any clinician.
For purposes of moderation, psychotherapy is used in a broad
sense.  It includes the discussion of topics that overlap with
other academic disciplines along with nontraditional areas and
approaches to psychotherapy. Similarly, "related issues" and
"applications" are defined broadly.

Moderation of sci.psychology.psychotherapy is not the Usenet
equivalent of editing a journal; it is meant to work as a filter.
The moderation is conducted in a spirit of inclusiveness and
collegiality.  Authors are encouraged to keep the content of their
articles directed toward applications of psychotherapy.  Authors
are also encouraged to cite relevant references in the literature
or provide some documentation for claims when and if possible.
When disagreeing with another poster, authors are encouraged to
concentrate on the others' ideas.

Submission Guidelines:

Articles should be checked for spelling and
  formatted with a line length of less than 72 columns,
  or else they will be automatically rejected. Articles
  will be edited for length and clarity.

Articles will also be automatically rejected if they are
  crossposted to non-psychology related newsgroups. Please
  resubmit the article and post it only to sci.psychology.psychotherapy
  and other sci.psychology newsgroups if this happens.

Articles requesting a literature search or references
  on a given topic will automatically be rejected out of
  hand, unless it is shown such a search has already
  been done and was fruitless. This includes the typical
  "Does anybody know anything about topic X?" or "Where
  do I look for information on topic Y?" The answer, of
  course, is in your local library.

Followups-To: and Reply-To: headers
  will be set to the appropriate address or newsgroup
  at the moderator's discretion.

If accepted, the article will be posted to
  sci.psychology.psychotherapy in a couple of days.
  (Please be patient.)

Since most articles are written and sent to us
  through newsreaders and various mail transports
  across the Internet, it is recommended that authors
  hold onto a copy of their submitted article in case of loss.

If the article is not accepted, a moderator
  will notify you of the rejection and give a brief
  explanation of why it was not accepted. Articles
  can be resubmitted for further consideration.

If an author would like a resubmission to be
  considered by the entire set of moderators, it
  should be noted in the mail to moderator.  If the
  majority of the moderators approve of the article,
  it will be posted in a couple of days.

Threads may be terminated and/or new articles may
  be rejected on these threads if there are many
  submissions saying essentially the same thing.
  Specifically, if an article has 80% or more same
  content as a previously-approved article which was
  posted in the past 30 days, it will be rejected.

Any person who _repeatedly_ abuses the
  charter, the group, the moderators, netiquette,
  etc., will not have articles approved,
  regardless of the content, until they can show
  good cause that they have changed their behaviors
  to conform to this charter.

END CHARTER.

                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
             moderated group sci.psychology.psychotherapy

This is the second formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the change
in status from unmoderated to moderated for the Usenet newsgroup,
sci.psychology.psychotherapy. This is not a Call for Votes (CFV);
you cannot vote at this time.  Procedural details are below.

Newsgroup line:
sci.psychology.psychotherapy	Practice of psychotherapy. (Moderated)

CHANGES SINCE THE 1st RFD: sci.psychology.psychotherapy

Where appropriate, changes since the 1st RFD are noted by
asterisks. A summary of these changes follows:

1. A rationale was added for moderating the existing group
   over adding an additional newsgroup on the same topic.
2. Two new tentative moderators were added to the moderation
   team.
3. Psychpharmacology was removed as an objectionable
   topic in the charter and is now considered an appropriate
   topic for discussion in the proposed newsgroup.
4. Submission guidelines were edited for clarity, to ensure that
   it is understood that the proposed moderation is to be "loose."
   Specific changes include reducing the ability to edit a submission
   before approving it, removing objectionable language, reducing
   power of moderators to act individually or in an abusive manner to
   censor one poster, making acceptance criteria more liberal and
   clarified editing guidelines and language.

* An additional newsgroup for discussion of psychotherapy topics

* (less than 200 per day) and its relative age (created less than
* a year ago). No current topics on sci.psychology.psychotherapy
* which discuss psychotherapy or therapy in general would
* appear to be inappropriate to the proposed moderated version
* of the newsgroup, according to the revised charter below.


CHARTER: sci.psychology.psychotherapy

This newsgroup is for the discussion of all different modalities of
psychotherapy, their efficacy, and their acceptance within the
psychotherapeutic and broader worldwide community.
All forms of psychotherapy as practiced by a wide range
of disciplines (psychology, psychiatry,

of techniques used in interpersonal therapy, cognitive-behavioral
therapy, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy, marriage and family

* Psychopharmacology topics are also appropriate to this newsgroup,

techniques may also be discussed. Case discussions, as long as

HOW TO VOTE:

Follow these instructions *exactly*!  Votes are counted by computer.
You should send E-MAIL (posts to a newsgroup are invalid) to:

    [email protected]

Please do not assume that just replying to this message will work.
Check the address before you mail your vote.  Your mail message
should contain one and only one of the following vote statements:

    I vote YES on sci.psychology.psychotherapy
    I vote NO on sci.psychology.psychotherapy

    Voter name:

If your mail software does not indicate your real name (for example, AOL and
Delphi do not), include _exactly_ the statement above on a _separate_ line
and add your name after the colon.  Having your name in your signature line
is NOT enough!  Do NOT join the lines together or remove the words
"Voter name"!

You may also vote ABSTAIN (which does exactly that) or CANCEL (which
removes any earlier votes).  ABSTAIN does not affect the final vote count
in any way but is listed, whereas CANCEL is not.

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES:

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One person, one vote.  Votes
must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.  Anonymous,
forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI
forms are considered to be anonymous votes.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may
mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker
about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote
is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of
the most recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will
be published in the final voting results post.

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of

RATIONALE: sci.psychology.psychotherapy

Since this newsgroup was created less than a year ago, it has acted as a
dumping ground for any miscellaneous article an author feels is
appropriate, without regard to the group's charter. Instead of
becoming a niche for professionals and laypeople alike to discuss
psychotherapy techniques and similar topics, it has become a foggy
mirror of sci.psychology.misc, hosting discussions on topics ranging
from sex with children to the ever-popular scientology topics.

Individuals, too, have used this and similar groups as a soap-box
in which to preach their particular gripes against psychotherapy,
or more generally, science and psychology. While certainly criticism
of psychotherapy is appropriate to this forum, dozens of articles
posted every day from the same people also are overwhelming the
group's ability to sustain and propose other appropriate topics.
Dozens of professionals who have contacted me in the past year
have stated their desire to utilize the forum for discussions of
psychotherapy topics, but are fearful to do so because of the flames
and personal insults they have observed on it.

It is therefore proposed to moderate this newsgroup with a broad
range of moderators, to help reduce the overwhelming noise on
the group and bring it closer to the intentions of the original
charter.

An additional newsgroup for discussion of psychotherapy topics
does not appear warranted at this time, given the relatively low
volume of articles on sci.psychology.psychotherapy
(less than 200 per day) and its relative age (created less than
a year ago). No current topics on sci.psychology.psychotherapy
which discuss psychotherapy or therapy in general would
appear to be inappropriate to the proposed moderated version
of the newsgroup.

CHARTER: sci.psychology.psychotherapy

This newsgroup is for the discussion of all different modalities of
psychotherapy, their efficacy, and their acceptance within the
psychotherapeutic and broader worldwide community.
All forms of psychotherapy as practiced by a wide range
of disciplines (psychology, psychiatry,
marriage and family counseling, social work, etc.) are
welcomed here, as are all clinicians in varying fields. Emphasis
is placed on discussing psychotherapeutic methods, rather than
research or theory, since these latter topics are covered in separate
newsgroups. However, research and theory discussions related
to psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic methods are welcomed.

Examples of appropriate topics for this newsgroup might be discussion
of techniques used in interpersonal therapy, cognitive-behavioral
therapy, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy, marriage and family
therapy, client-centered therapy, rational-emotive therapy, etc.
Psychopharmacology topics are also appropriate to this newsgroup,
in relation to a broader discussion on aspects of mental health treatment.
Ethical issues in practice as well as specific psychotherapeutic
techniques may also be discussed. Case discussions, as long as
anonymity is ensured, are also welcome. Participants are reminded
always to be careful of confidentiality and ethical issues when
posting such questions.

Individuals seeking help or information on a specific emotional,
psychological or related physical problem or disorder
may also post questions about specifical psychotherapeutic
techniques and treatments. Individuals are encouraged, however,
to seek out answers to these types of questions elsewhere first.

Advertisements for any products, whether psychology is a
"science" or not, scientology topics, whether X behavior is
"normal" or not, and on any research or theoretical areas
outside the purview of psychology or psychotherapy would remain
on other existing newsgroups and are examples of topics that are
inappropriate for this group. "Flaming" and personal insults are
also not appropriate to this newsgroup.

Moderation Guidelines:

This is a loosely moderated group, moderation mainly being
used to screen out irrelevant, non-psychotherapy articles, personal
attacks, ad hominem arguments and irrelevant political debate.

The purpose of moderation on sci.psychology.psychotherapy
is to create a collegial forum for the discussion about
psychotherapy -- in all forms and as practiced by any clinician.
For purposes of moderation, psychotherapy is used in a broad
sense.  It includes the discussion of topics that overlap with
other academic disciplines along with nontraditional areas and
approaches to psychotherapy. Similarly, "related issues" and
"applications" are defined broadly.

Moderation of sci.psychology.psychotherapy is not the Usenet
equivalent of editing a journal; it is meant to work as a filter.
The moderation is conducted in a spirit of inclusiveness and
collegiality.  Authors are encouraged to keep the content of their
articles directed toward applications of psychotherapy.  Authors
are also encouraged to cite relevant references in the literature
or provide some documentation for claims when and if possible.
When disagreeing with another poster, authors are encouraged to
concentrate on the others' ideas.

Submission Guidelines:

Articles should be checked for spelling and
  formatted with a line length of less than 72 columns.
  Articles may occasionally undergo *minor* editing
  for punctuation, subject header, etc. Any significant
  changes to the content of an article will not occur,
  without prior approval and permission from the
  original author. Followup-To: and Reply-To: headers
  will be set to the appropriate address or newsgroup
  at the moderator's discretion.

Articles may be automatically rejected if they are
  crossposted to non-psychology related newsgroups.
  Please resubmit the article and post it only to
  sci.psychology.psychotherapy and other psychology
  or relevant mental health newsgroups if this occurs.

If accepted, the article will be posted to
  sci.psychology.psychotherapy in a couple of days.
  (Please be patient and do not resubmit the article.)
  Since most articles are written and sent to the
  moderators through newsreaders and various mail
  transports across the Internet, it is recommended
  that authors hold onto a copy of their submitted
  article in case of accidental loss.

If the article is not accepted, a moderator
  will notify you of the rejection and give a brief
  explanation of why it was not accepted. Articles
  can be resubmitted for further consideration.
  If an author would like a resubmission to be
  considered by the entire set of moderators, it
  should be noted in the e-mail to the moderator.
  If a simple majority of the moderators then approve
  the article, it will be immediately posted.

Articles which have 75-80% or more same content as a
  previously-approved article by the same author
  (not including quoted material) which was
  posted in the past 30 days will be rejected.
  Authors are encouraged to trim quoted material of
  articles to which they are replying, to highlight the
  relevant points in the quoted material.

Abuse of the moderation process in the form of
  mail-bombs, personal threats, etc. will result
  in the abuser's Internet service provider being
  notified. Additional action(s) may be taken if
  the moderators unanimously agree additional
  action(s) are necessary and warranted.

Changes to moderators, including removing and adding
  new moderators, will be determined at a later date
  by the moderators in consultation with the newsgroup.

END CHARTER.

HOW TO VOTE:

Follow these instructions *exactly*!  Votes are counted by computer.
You should send E-MAIL (posts to a newsgroup are invalid) to:

    [email protected]

Please do not assume that just replying to this message will work.
Check the address before you mail your vote.  Your mail message
should contain one and only one of the following vote statements:

    I vote YES on moderating sci.psychology.psychotherapy
    I vote NO on moderating sci.psychology.psychotherapy

    Voter name:

If your mail software does not indicate your real name (for example, AOL and
Delphi do not), include _exactly_ the statement above on a _separate_ line
and add your name after the colon.  Having your name in your signature line
is NOT enough!  Do NOT join the lines together or remove the words
"Voter name"!

You may also vote ABSTAIN (which does exactly that) or CANCEL (which
removes any earlier votes).  ABSTAIN does not affect the final vote count
in any way but is listed, whereas CANCEL is not.

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES:

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One person, one vote.  Votes
must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.  Anonymous,
forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI
forms are considered to be anonymous votes.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may
mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker
about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote
is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of
the most recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will
be published in the final voting results post.

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of
persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from
disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute
this CFV.  If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted
to news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise
edited copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud.
When in doubt, ask the votetaker.
