The Last Word

Gratifying was the response to our new design, but disappointing that we received no controversial or critical written comments to place on our Letters page.  We're either doing everything right or you're too polite to tell us.


We hope it's the former and we hope you enjoy the current issue.  The next paper issue will appear at the end of March 2003.




This issue has introduced the Potions, Notions and Ancient Remedies section that we mentioned previously, and our current intention is to continue this theme in the next issue if sufficient interest is forthcoming.  We also began some themes in the Brief Therapy and Language sections and hope we will get some contributions on both those subjects.



For future issues we are still considering:


Groups and Groupwork.  Encounter groups, Gestalt group process, the large group experience, establishing boundaries, working with organisations and teams.  Having two or three book reviews in the current issue on this subject, we will probably introduce the theme in our April online issue.


Other, future ideas, include:

Nurturing Ecological Potential - how the environment - general, personal, and domestic - may be preserved and enhanced. 

Bridging Cultural Differences - Class, Religion, Ethnicity, Education - the status quo versus innovation, as applied in our personal and professional aspirations.

Only Connect.  Networks and networking and their potential for self- and group-development.
