    It took me a little bit longer then I would have liked but the audio recording of the webinar with David Schechter and Arnold Bloch is now ready. This was a great event, and I really enjoyed hearing both Dr. Schechter and Arnold Bloch's take on TMS and what it takes to recover. If you have a few minutes give the following a listen. I would also love to hear what people think of this.

    I found the webinar to be helpful, especially when the talk got to specific TMS causes... guilt, anger, perfectionism.
    Good work, Forest. Thanks very much.

    I am glad you found the recording helpful. I looks like we are over our bandwith limit with box.com (We have so many great audio programs now!), so you may not be able to download it from the above option. Not to fear, I recently uploaded the recording and you can download it at http://tmswiki.org/dl/SchechterBlochWebinar.mp3 . All you have to do is click the "Save Page As" button and it will download to your computer, allowing you to then upload it to an mp3 player. If you have any questions about this feel free to ask.
