I will let you know. I wonder whether he is already aware of this phenomenon. He isn't super computer savvy.

Re. the China project - this sounds very interesting. I'm curious how cultural differences play into the therapy. My therapist went to Japan for a period and saw patients while he was there. From my understanding of Japanese culture (and perhaps this also relates to Chinese culture to some degree), there is more openness about bodily processes (sex etc.) than say in the US. This is apparent in Japanese art, for example. On the other hand, personal strength and perseverance are central - you are of your own making - and so are your short-comings - so I imagine admitting one has mental illness is very difficult and unacceptable - plus the strong bond of families, and respecting ones elders and upholding family honor.
