Seeking Psychological Counseling and Therapeutic Services in Virtual Worlds

Last friday at the Nonprofit Commons, we welcomed RJ Muni, licensed psychotherapist, to our amphitheater to talk with us about psychological counseling services he and his volunteers provide for Second Life residents at NewWays Counseling / Sunshine Garden.  We discussed other groups and individuals who were providing counseling and therapeutic services in-world, and I realized that it might be helpful to have a listing of those resources for others.

We have created a page on the Nonprofit Commons wiki here: http://npsl.wiki.techsoup.org/Counseling+and+Therapeutic+Services+in+Virtual+Worlds .If you know of therapists, mental health centers and others providing psychological counseling in virtual worlds, please provide that information to nonprofitcommons@ techsoup.org so those can be represented.  And if there are already listings of these services somewhere online, we’d appreciate the link. Psychological counseling using virtual worlds is a strong use case that helps us all in discussing these tools with the public.
