Since Kali Munro's in Toronto, I was thinking about including her. But then the focus would be online groups rather than advice for therapists. How about that? A "workshop" like this?

> Online Peer Support Groups -- and Support Group Members
> The Internet empowers patients by connecting them not only to information, but also to each other. This workshop introduces participants to two specific online peer support groups, one small and private, the other large and public. The moderators of the groups explain how the groups function, including what the goals of the groups are, how the group members interact, what topics are discussed, how the moderators moderate, and what the pros and cons of the groups are. The focus of the session, however, is small group discussion with group members about their experiences with this type of resource. In this workshop, in other words, patients are empowered to teach doctors. All participants regroup for concluding questions and answers.

And what if she's not available and it were just us?

If people who couldn't be there wanted to contribute something in writing, maybe we could work that in somehow?
