For a long time, out of legal and ethical concerns, I’ve deprived myself of allowing comments on this blog. I had worries that clients might identify themselves or that people might share things in the comments that would make themselves vulnerable or which might require some action on my part or create an inadvertent clinical relationship between us.
But I’m going to begin experimenting with allowing moderated comments on some of my blog posts now and see how that goes. I plan to screen all comments before posting, not to be a heavy-handed control freak, but just to be sure that they contribute to the value of dialogue, community, and my site. Hateful, and abusive speech will not be approved.
I look forward to hearing from my readers and having conversations with you about my writing.
Thanks, as always, for checking out my site!
