Staying “up-to-date” isn’t easy in today’s practice environment. In these lean economic times, training budgets are often the first to be cut. On the other hand, trying to separate the “important” from “irrelevant” in our information-rich age can be, as Mitchell Kapor once observed, “a bit like trying to get a drink from a fire hydrant.”
Enter the ICCE—a web-based community of professionals dedicated to improving the quality and outcome of behavioral health services worldwide. Every day, in forums ranging from “research on psychotherapy” to “marketing and media,” members from around the world meet to learn from and share with each other. What’s more, groups have been created for practitioners working in specific countries (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Netherlands, and so on). Crucially, in these forums members are able to address issues relevant to the specific environment in which they work and do so in their own language.
In the latest issue of the Psychotherapy Networker, internet and media consultant Elizabeth Doherty Thomas, identified ICCE as one of the “best clinical resources on the internet”—high praise when one considers the tens of thousands of websites featuring content related to behavioral health practice.
