Ecopsychology #Diagnostics #Genogram

So, I want to talk about the way I am using all I was taught up at Pacifica Graduate Institute in tandem with experiences as an Intern on a case by case basis. But since we are all stuck in this miasma of year 2022, why not do the research and try and figure out a treatment plan that is for the WEB. What I am most interested in, is when kids have access to the WEB itself, so we are using the genogram for that, and then using concepts from Depth and Ecopsychology. So back to the timeline with Academic questions, and proofs.

So, looking at the history of the computer via Wikipedia.

Using this date along the genogram.

1922———————————-1972—–1992———————–2022.

So from personal experience working at a newspaper, in the 1980’s, by the late 80’s we are all familiar with computer systems and they are part of our jobs. My guess is that the men have them for “toys” at home? That can afford them. Across the entire globe. So in glancing through the above article, for me 1995 is the year I actually buy one. I will use it to learn to write papers and it is pretty simple. This is the first one I ever saw that was “Fun” and in the Art Department of the paper, so 1984, and it was an Apple, with fun fonts and things.

So let’s assume that many Dads work with them, in the year that is 1984, and they are being used at home for “fun” by parents? But what year do the kids start using them.

Let’s talk about the father’s childhood, in say, 1964, versus the child born into this world at 1984. Of course Dad will teach his kids how to use one? How much access to information did they have? Was it too much, for someone so young? That is how we want to think about this. Just as a diagnostic.

From the Wikipedia ”

In 2001, 125 million personal computers were shipped in comparison to 48,000 in 1977. More than 500 million PCs were in use in 2002 and one billion personal computers had been sold worldwide since mid-1970s till this time. Of the latter figure, 75 percent were professional or work related, while the rest sold for personal or home use. About 81.5 percent of PCs shipped had been desktop computers, 16.4 percent laptops and 2.1 percent servers. United States had received 38.8 percent (394 million) of the computers shipped, Europe 25 percent and 11.7 percent had gone to Asia-Pacific region, the fastest-growing market as of 2002.[73] Almost half of all the households in Western Europe had a personal computer and a computer could be found in 40 percent of homes in United Kingdom, compared with only 13 percent in 1985.[74] The third quarter of 2008 marked the first time laptops outsold desktop PCs in the United States.[75]

As of June 2008, the number of personal computers worldwide in use hit one billion. Mature markets like the United States, Western Europe and Japan accounted for 58 percent of the worldwide installed PCs. About 180 million PCs (16 percent of the existing installed base) were expected to be replaced and 35 million to be dumped into landfill in 2008. The whole installed base grew 12 percent annually.[76][77]

I am very concerned about the kids, so let’s watch a video. This is a mother talking about losing her son in the teen years. I want to trace the timeline of how the DSM changed.

So we are going to look at the Wiki on what her son was diagnosed with, and we are going to look at the criteria for.

We can see that 1995 is a key date so questions along that timeline really matter. How many young kids (especially boys) were medicated. This was one of my teachers up at Pacifica on all that.

So as I looked at the pictures of the emo heart, and because I was an Art & Narrative modality when working with kids in the years 1996—-2003, at Family Service Agency and other places here in town, and because I have many concerns about what might have happened to an entire generation?

The timeline is prescient, because at WordPress, the founder was born in 1984. The thing for me, is that I was never a tech wizard like all of you. So you are the kids of those fathers, in 1984 and on down the line. I have looked at a few vids of the metaverse concept, and that is the world being created. By your generation. You are really smart, and “logos” is what all of you have in spades.

So the childhoods of 1984, along this line:

1922————————————–1984——1994 (cognition age ten)– 2022

What 1994 looked like, for the little kids who were 10 that year.

Advertorial, research, storytellers, WordAds, Demographics, continued…

So, more research yesterday for the art of Advertorial and Testimonial ads here in WP.   Gutenberg is story, and provides the vehicle for that.  A good piece on the lost art of copywriting here.

So I tried a test based on something I put through FB yesterday to see what happened after reading here in WP about the FB/WP dilemma at the WP blog.  I wanted to see if anyone clicked through from FB over to WP, they did not and I took the pix to prove that.  So I am going to try again today with that link as a cut and paste and ask European friends if they can see.

There seems to be so much going on with the social media companies it’s hard to keep up, or keep things straight.  Anyway, I am using a new system now.

Stats on yesterday:

Friends could see and remark when I put this photo, but it was as if the WP post was invisible to them?

So I am not really using anything but WP right now.  I’m not sure which of the social media companies can be trusted at this point, besides WordPress, given the news about FB and Twitter.

WordPress is calm, smart, and lovable.

Not sure what to say about the others…

Doing a test this morning to see if still invisible FB using a link.  This was a post on advertorial yesterday,  renewed for today:

So this was a test to see reach on a link from last night.  I was only making reference to a story, but this is the way I would use linking in Portfolio.

Today I will write something up on that.  Yesterday I looked around at sites and will show what I mean by demographics.

This is what I always loved as a scholarly writer – the ability to link.  In the case of Advertorial and storytelling, this is the most important function.

So seven people have come by and one clicked through.

That would be a click where advertorial could run a product.  Going to do a mockup for that and run a test through.  I will do that in FB too.

So this is this morning, a friend has been by, but I don’t know if she clicked through.  She has read my children’s book “Heart of Clouds” and loves it.  I want to market that globally, and I plan to do that from here in WordPress.

I love WordPress, and  I never fail to promote it.  Across the globe, with other writers.
