I wonder if anyone can advise how I can properly use the search function for 'short' words? I have been trying to find posts about 'art therapy' and it does not let me search for that as words with less than 4 letters are not accepted and no results are shown.
Searching for the word therapy is WAYS to broad of course and would not really lead me anywhere close to the things I am looking for.

Any ideas or tricks on how I can make this search efficiently?

Thanks. flowers.gif

I had the same problem Jen when searching initially for threads on "Pap Test" or "Pap Smear". It would be good if those words could be searched in some way.

Thanks John. Maybe there is some way to 'fool' the system? If there is, I know you will figure it out. smile.gif

I also tried to search for pap test & gyn exam as Phoenixgirl some time back without success and I know others looked specifically for CBT or DBT approaches in the therapy forum but could not search for that either. The problem is that those specific terms are often not mentioned in the subject lines of the threats such it is very hard to find anything related.
