HOW TO WRITE FOR MASS MARKETS
The greatest way to get your name out there is to have a subject that appeals to “everyone.” Well, duh, that isn’t so easy, but what is easy is determining that many people need or want a therapist. But how to get the right therapist is the question. I dedicate this post to helping you, the consumer figure that out, then pass it on. You want someone who is well recommended, who you have already met at another venue, or who works with either talk therapy or cognitive behavioral therapy depending on the problem you present. If you have an addiction such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, etc. you will want a cognitive behavorial therapist–you will be “doing” something each session to enhance your power over your addictin. If you have more long term problems from childhood, and who doesn’t? you will want talk therapy. It works. You gain rapport with your therapist. And if he or she doesn’t talk too much, you will be able to present your story, find out where your feelings come from and gain control over them. More next time.
