How did the EDT Discussion List start?
This EDT Discussion List grew out of the efforts of The NJ/NY STDP Institute to bring together clinicians who practice various forms of STDP. For years, the institute had been holding conferences where practitioners of various systems present their work in an atmosphere of openness and collegiality. Discussions that began during a workshop in the fall of 1998 continued through e-mail, and expanded to include colleagues in the U.S. and Canada. This group of clinicians decided to open up the discussion to others. An informal e-mail discussion list was begun in Spring of 1998. In the Summer of 1998, list members decided to create a web site to host this information page, and make it easier for people to join, leave and ask questions about the list. It took some time to get the technical staff and details in place. The founders tested the list and site in December 1998. On January 1, 1999 the technical staff had completed the site and we were ready to open up the list. As the founders of the list, we hope that new contributors will help this list grow as an ideal forum for STDP networking on an international scale. The founding members include:
- Allan Abbass
- Michael Alpert
- Patricia Della Selva
- Diana Fosha
- Allen Kalpin
- Leigh McCullough
- Ferruccio Osimo
- Isabel Sklar
