    I started a series called The Psychology Query several months back which I intended to publish weekly answering questions I received here and through other sites.  Unfortunately, many of the questions I get are more technical than would work on HP and there haven't been enough of the general interest ones to answer here.  If anyone has any questions about topics in psychology or self help issues and is willing to have them answered as part of an article I would really appreciate it if you'd pm them to me, post them here or on one of the previous editions of the Psychology Query.  Your name will not be used.  Thanks in advance for any help that may be forthcoming!

      But, why do you think technical ones don't work here on HP?
      I have been to some of those series, times back, and found them to be useful and wonderful guidelines. Keep up it going, anyway.

        The technical ones are more for health care providers and are about things like differential diagnosis or conducting assessments, psychometric, test construction and statistics.

          So the audience will be very low and laymen could not grasp it or show any interest. This is your problem, I hope.

    I will find such a series interesting as often, I ask my friends in the medical field to interpret for me some of those diagnoses, assessments and tests in their field. The technical part is often where we need help.

      Natalie just maybe people may have had enough of being made wrong or given a label or more labels.
      I, too, in my own way guilty of trying to work out what is "wrong".
      I dont know what is doable but what about losing seriousness for a while and noticing what is "working" or "what is right".
      We will never be "right/perfect" as being imperfect is what is human/himane about us. Or, it teaches us to be humane towards ourselves and hence, more humane towards others.
      Best of luck in whatever you choose to do. Cheers!

        Three keys that's the whole focus of my approach.  I was actually trained not to give diagnoses which worked managed care.  Is just like to have some questions that would be of interest to those reading on HP

        Vankatachari I do not mean to imply that the readership here is "low" or "laymen" can't understand.  I just don't think an article that discusses the derivation of a z score statistically with a history of how certain tests were noted and how are scores are transferred into standardized scores and normal ranges of score for men and women at different ages adjustments in score for children and adolescents scores for different populations then a of this all overuagain for 1SD above and below them again for 2SD above and below etc would be of general interest.  I don't think I wrote at a simplistic manner or in a way that suggests I think they can't comprehend things at a high level.  I really was just hoping for some questions of interest to people that I could answer in the column.  I've written 10 editions but they haven't been as close together as I would have liked.  With more questions I could write them more regularly. Thanks

          Okay, I understand it. But, you know, people do not like sharing personal problems openly and discuss them, like my own son. I find my son always frustrated and in depression but he does not like my enquiring him nor providing him advice of any kind. He wants me to leave him alone mostly.

            Again, it doesn't have to be personal problems and those I wouldn't answer publicly anyway. Check out the series to get a feel for what I've answered so far. Thanks.

              I've had friends with the same problem as Venkatachari M's son.  Here is my question.  What is the best way to approach someone who is obviously depressed but doesn't want to talk about it?  Is that the type of questions you are looking for?  I think I will find the series extremely interesting.

                Hi Kari - sorry it took me so long to get back to you.  Yes, that is exactly the type of question I am looking for.  Thanks for the help!  Anything else that might come to mind would be appreciated.  I will hopefully be able to get enough questions together to put out another installment before too long.

                  Another along the same line...What and/or what not do you say to depressed people about their depression?  This one assumes both people have knowledge of the depression.  I have people tell me to "look on the bright side" and similar.  This type of advice doesn't help me because I do try to look on the bright side.

            Venkatachari M - Sorry -  I think I misunderstood the point of your reply. Were you suggesting this as a question/topic as in how to help people you have difficulties when they won't share them?  Thanks.
