By way of introduction[edit]

I guess this my current source page until otherwise, as it is hard to know where to put personal data in the wiki-sphere.

Current[edit]

I am finishing a masters in psychotherapy, and it seems my talent is with the youthful crooks (to be blunt) as I kind of "get them" (and, most important, "accept" them) as a life-long urban dweller.

Empathy as emotional communication.[edit]

I developed a lot of text that I will place in a temporary article: User:John Bessa/Saving Constructivism to prepare for a page Constructivism which I will begin from the bottom up by annotating the source material: it will be here-and-now-oriented, only showing older information only as it supports current information, or constructions. (Outdated, orphaned matieral will not be included). I accept that collaboration in the wiki-sphere is really at the level of the wiki and rarely at the level of the data, so I expect to do this work solo with a little encouragement, and perhaps a few hassles, which is not a problem.
