Reprint Permission"I recently read one of your articles and was wondering if I could use it on my own site / company newsletter / magazine. Is that okay?"
I’m always flattered and appreciative when people like what they see on my site and want to share it with others. However, because About.com is owned by the New York Times, they have their own policies for reprints, and handle the issue on a case-by-case basis. If you’re interested in referring people to my articles, I would love it if you included a blurb or a few quotes on your site, and then linked to mine. If you would like to reproduce the entire article, or a large portion of it, please visit our reprint permission page to get full permission.
Ask A Question"I am having a personal problem that’s causing stress in my life. Can you help?"
I welcome emails from readers, and love helping with problems. If you email me, I will do my best to respond within a few days. However, due to the large volume of mail I receive, I can't guarantee a response to every email. Therefore, I’d like to encourage you to post questions in the Stress Management Forum first, though. This gives the benefit of having advice and support from a variety of perspectives, as well as mine, and may provide you with a quicker response as well. However, either venue gives your email the opportunity to be an FAQ on my site!
Request an Interview"I have a radio show / write for magazines / am working on a book. Do you do interviews?"
I love doing radio and magazine interviews. I’ve been interviewed for CNN.com, Inc.com, Good Housekeeping, and other magazines, have been a guest on Playboy Radio and other national radio shows, and am the ‘Resident Therapist’ for Super Human Radio. I currently don’t speak at conferences due to the expenses involved, but that may change at some point. However, I love doing interviews! If you’re interested in an interview, please email me, and I’d love to talk to you.
Suggest An Article"I like what I’ve read on your site so far, but I don’t see anything on a certain topic that interests me. Can you send me whatever you have on the topic? Can I suggest you write about the topic in the future?"
I love article suggestions from readers! Please email me with your questions, and I will send you whatever I currently have, or put it on my list of future topics. (Your questions often inspire FAQs on my site!) However, if you want information right away, type your topic into the search box on the top right side of any page on my site.
I'd also like to suggest that you read this article on how to stay connected on this site; I'd love to see you join the community and make the most of the offerings here.
