1.Welcome to share, discuss and practice SELF HELP ideas -by and for pws.
2.It is a mixed pan India group. Observe courtesy and a polite tone at all times.
3.This group is first and foremost meant for TISA to share with you:
A: Upcoming Hangouts, Communication workshops, NC: any relevant and important TISA Announcements
B: Announcing the release of self help articles, videos, resources etc.
C: TISA appeals for volunteers and other help etc.
D: Creative expressions from pws. (stories, poems, paintings, song, music etc.)
4.This group is also meant to discuss and share self-help ideas in PRACTICE (not “theory”) as promoted by TISA. It is not meant for discussion on paid/ professional/ untested therapies/ cures. So, you may share these :
Your experiences while practicing tools and techniques;
Your creative approaches to dealing with your problems;
Your problem solving skills in real life,
Your wisdom born out of stammering life
5.No discussion on Religion, Politics, Sexist, Racist or Communal themes.
6.No greetings on any festival, No inspirational messages, No “life changing video” forwards etc. since they fill up the space and are of little practical use to a pws. But if you do a 90 meter bungy jump and want to share your own clip of 30 secs, it is OK!
7.You will not advise other members (“You must try my technique”). Only Admins may offer well considered and qualified advice to members occasionally.
8.You can share your own videos, highlighting TISA themes of acceptance, rising above the fear, communicating at a deep level (instead of superficial fluency), addressing a group, making a presentation etc. You can certainly repaste your own Mooc core task videos here.
