Welcome to Marsden Therapy | Social Media for Psychotherapy, Teaching and Business | Scoop.it

Welcome to this Marsden Therapy topic, a collection of news items, articles and blog posts about business, social media and information technology. It combines several of my interests: business development (how to grow a counselling practice), developing a counselling practice and communication using social media and the use of open educational resources and new technologies in teaching and learning.

Winning by Sharing

Winning by Sharing | Social Media for Psychotherapy, Teaching and Business | Scoop.it
Slides from the talk I gave at the BBC's Creative Diversity Network in December 2012 on how to brand yourself online.
marsdentherapy's insight:

Seeing this blog and Slideshare has been timely for me. I spend a lot of time sharing links, writing posts and creating resources for my students and to build my reputation as a counsellor who is passionate, committed and knowledgeable about the profession of counselling. I have evidence from students, clients and colleagues that this is successful, but your blog and presentation has helped me to be patient, focus on the process rather than the outcome and to remember that influence cannot always be measured by immediate reactions and change. In fact these principles apply as much to client work in counselling as they do to my involvement with social media. And the fact that I am now thinking, 'This could make a good blog post' shows how much I have begun to think in terms of creation, curation and sharing.


For further reflections check out my blog post:

VoiceThread - Group conversations around images, documents, and videos | Social Media for Psychotherapy, Teaching and Business | Scoop.it

Upload a batch of pictures, then individual students can comment on each one either with words or with an audio recording.


Via russeltarr, Deborah Millar
marsdentherapy's insight:

I was looking at the Voice Thread website the other day and I realised what a boon it could be for me and my counselling students at UCBC. They can video themselves counselling each other and then the whole group and their tutors can watch the video and comment on each intervention that's used throughout the session ... excellent! Think I might need a premium subscription to use it most effectively though

Ernesto Sirolli: Want to help someone? Shut up and listen! | Video on TED.com

TED Talks When most well-intentioned aid workers hear of a problem they think they can fix, they go to work. This, Ernesto Sirolli suggests, is naïve.

Not sure this is relevant to social media but it's a good talk.

Backstitch is a great personal start page that is a great replacement for the soon to be shutdown iGoogle.

Backstich is a nice personalized homepage that allows users to personalize the content delivered. The design of the website stays the same.

You can use Backstitch to have your Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, RSS feeds and more all brought to one page. The content, which you can see an example of below, is all displayed in a simple, similar format.

Backstitch is a great start/landing/personal web page to make your day a little easier and more organized. It is currently in free Beta.

Evernote Clearly for Chrome gets some great new features! | Social Media for Psychotherapy, Teaching and Business | Scoop.it

Evernote, one of my favorite web apps (along with Google's many apps), has a great product, Evernote Clearly which is a browser extension for Google Chrome (other browsers will be added soon) that allows you to read online with less distractions. You simply click the extension and it hides all the distractions from blogs and articles, allowing you to read with less distractions and more easily. It use it a lot, especially on sites that I want to clip to Evernote (it keeps all the junk from getting clipped too).

Getting More Out of Student Blogging | Sue Waters Blog | Social Media for Psychotherapy, Teaching and Business | Scoop.it

While there is a wide range of reasons why educators use blogs; there are four main blogging approaches taken when educators use blogs with students.

These are:

Class blog only – the educator publishes all the posts on the class blog and the students may respond by leaving comments.Class blog only – the educator and students both publish posts on the class blog.Student blogs only – each student has their own individual blog and there is no class blog.Class blog and student blogs – the educator publishes all the posts on the class blog and each student has their own individual blog.
