Apologies for taking a few days to get back to you - we've been discussing your suggestion! Thank you for getting contact with us about this. We've chatted about the Book Discussion forum and we are looking at moving it to the Moving Forward forum, where it will be more geared towards discussions about healing and further self-learning and hopefully more visible to members. We aim to keep the Resources section for information about crisis centres and hotlines, which is why we decided not to move the forum in there. The Resources forum is also a public forum, which could restrict some members who aren't comfortable in those forums from engaging in discussion about the books.
As for the links, have you ever seen the Links section of the site? It's a place were members can post helpful links they have come across, separated out into various categories. We have one category called "Topic Specific Support
" - we would be more than happy to create a category within it for torture or any other kinds of links you are wanting to post.
You might have noticed that in the Essays and Articles section we have some externally hosted articles from other sites. If you ever come across an article that you feel is well written and informative, please don't hesitate to pass it along to us so we can decide if it will fit in with our collection of articles and can ask the author for permission to link to it. In fact, please do send them along because we would love to expand our library in this area!
We also value members writing up their own articles, outlining information about a topic and if they want to, sharing their own personal perspective. If you would like to write something about the healing process of being a survivor of torture, please feel welcome to send a draft along for us a check out. We've all had such a great range of experiences and have so much to offer each other. If you don't feel ready for that right now though, there is absolutely no pressure.
