    Helping Hands

    This thread is where anyone can select an individual to talk to at their will. Each name will be linked and beside each name we will eventually have a symbol for gender. The names of the members available will eventually be in blue to make them easier to see if they are online. To sign up, please copy and paste the below list and then post it onto this thread. It will then (eventually) be linked. You must refresh this at the start of each month or send me a PM to show that you are still able to help, and I'll keep your name and info refreshed. Also, the availability point is not needed to be altered whenever you are on or off line but rather is a means of letting people know if you can currently help when you are online. If you are too busy are away, or cannot help for another reason, please change your availability status. Thanks

    Have you completed official training in counseling or a directly related field?


    No formal training, but I work in a high school library, and spent 18 months volunteering for the LiveJournal Abuse Team, and am familiar with a number of resources and options from those settings (as well as a background in some relevant legal issues.)

    How many years have you been helping others formally or informally?

    8 or so in different contexts. The longest is in poly-related conversations and discussions.


    Demographics


    What age group do you fall under? I'm 29.

    Approximate area of residence: Twin Cities, Minnesota.

    Are you fluent in any language other than English? No.

    PM
    Instant Messenger: either AIM or Yahoo (I'm jenettsilver on both) but I rarely turn them on: I'm glad to if asked, though.
    E-mail (jenett@gleewood.org)


    Are you comfortable with giving advice, IF the one you're counseling requests it?
    Yes.

    What age groups would you be comfortable helping?

    16-20 (There are some conversations I'm uncomfortable with with those under 18. If one comes up, I'll say so and do my best to find someone else to help.)
    21-25
    26-30
    31-40
    41-50
    51-60

    A lot of my experience is in talking about relationship issues and helping people figure out what works for them. Specifically, I'm poly, female, and heterosexual (but have a number of friends who are bi or gay, and know several people who are transgender). I'm familiar with resources and other options in these areas in general.

    Also, while I don't do much with BDSM myself, I'm reasonably informed, non-biased, and don't freak out easily on the subject. I'm also aware of good resources in this area.

    Any other relevant comments:

    I'm almost always online weekdays between about 4:30 and 6:30am, and 5:30 to 8pm (Central US time). Weekends vary a lot more.

    Email is the fastest way to reach me - I usually see it within an hour, often less, if I'm awake. I rarely have IM programs on by habit but can load them if someone wants to talk.

    I check in at MW about twice a day most days, morning and evening.
