    5. Last we looked we were not pdocs
    (psychiatrists) or T's (Therapists) and we are not qualified to do
    psychotherapy. The board is for sharing and support, we recommend
    finding a therapist to work with too.

    6. There will be no advertising or soliciting.
    7.
    There will be no copying of the board of messages, what is posted here
    stays here. This improves confidentiality, and confidentiality improves
    trust.

    10. Please keep yourself and others safe.
    If posting potentially triggering material, use "TW" or "spoiler" in
    the subject. Do not describe triggering material in detail, we are all
    survivors and have vivid imaginations.

    Self Regulated Behaviour

    Post by krathyn on Thu Dec 23, 2010 8:52 pm

    An important aspect to creating a safe, learning, and supportive
    environment is for members to self-regulate their behavior while
    posting or chatting on this board. Self-regulation is often difficult,
    but practicing controlling our own behavior helps us learn to set and
    respect others' boundaries. Since gossiping, bashing members,
    administrators, other boards, or demonstrating similar, inappropriate
    behavior will not be tolerated here, we included tips for you to
    consider before logging into or posting here.

    1. Be in an adult state of mind thoughtful, kind, and supportive before logging in or posting.

    2.
    Before beginning a new topic, consider carefully what you need from
    community members. State your topic clearly, including spoilers, if
    appropriate. Post your intention (sharing experience, asking a question,
    or seeking support). Then, state what you need from members. Do not
    include several topics in one post. Break down the topics and post them
    in the appropriate areas within the board. These steps will help other
    members respond to your posts.

    3. Before responding to a post, read it a couple times and
    identify the important points the writer presents and determine their
    needs, be it support, information, validation, etc. Reply by responding
    directly to the member constructively and with their needs in mind. Try
    not to hijack posts making the post about you or changing the subject
    from the original topic. If you think of a subject that pertains to, but
    is not in answer to the original members post, begin a new thread. If
    something comes to mind that you would like to explore, start a new
    topic. All posts should be on-topic and directed to the original
    member's post.

    4. Recognize what triggers you. Do not read posts
    that you know are triggering. If you feel uncomfortable, walk away from
    the board and take a break. If you are feeling overwhelmed with new
    information, give yourself time to absorb before reading further on that
    topic. If you become triggered or overwhelmed while chatting, leave the
    room immediately.

    5. Agree to Disagree. We don't always agree with others' ideas,
    beliefs, or opinions and that is okay. When we disagree with another
    member's opinions, beliefs, or ideas, it is imperative that we respect
    and support their feelings and experiences as valid. Members may state
    opposite points of view by first responding with support and validation,
    then clearly and diplomatically presenting their opinion as their own,
    rather than presenting themselves as experts. Debates, arguments, etc.
    will not be tolerated.

    6. Do not, for any reason, attempt to
    recruit members, either through private mail or posts for any outside
    organization. If you know of any organization you would like the board
    to promote, please submit it to a staff member for approval. Once
    approved, they will be added to the resource section.

    7. If you
    receive private mail that seems intrusive, such as a member requesting
    personal information or unsolicited friendship, please copy the private
    mail and paste it to a moderators private mail to promote discussion
    between moderators and members concerning boundaries and safety issues.
    All information received and any discussions between admins and members
    is completely confidential.

    8. Do not read private mail unless
    in an adult state of mind. If any private mail is addressed to a member
    of your system who is under the age of 18, do not read it, but
    immediately send a copy to a staff members' inbox.

    9. Respect and support each other.

    11.

    Use of proxys and hiding one's online status are NOT permitted in this forum. We want a safe board and want to know who is on it and where they come from.
    Please refrain from the use of proxy or hiding online status. This can be punishable by banning.
