Search results are ranked: the better matches are closer to the top. 

You can type in any range of words or sentences you want to look for.

There are 3 ways to enhance your search:

  1. You can add a '+' sign between words if you want the search to be for both words only when they are found together. (If you don't add a '+' sign, the search will include results for either word found alone.) Using the '+' sign will give you fewer results. For example, searching for 'harvey+jackins' will give you fewer results than 'harvey jackins.'  
  2. If you are somewhat familiar with programming you can use '&' or '+' for AND and '|' or 'space' for OR. 
  3. If you are more familiar with more complicated programming: you can use '(' and ')'. You can use these in combination with each other.

  • Rational mit "Gefrorenen Bedürfnissen" umgehen 

    Rational mit "Gefrorenen Bedürfnissen" umgehen, Charlotte Lowrey. Das Verständnis davon, dass wir "gefrorene" Bedürfnisse haben, war lange Zeit ein Teil der NC-Theorie, aber ich glaube, dass sie viel bedeutsamer sind, als wir angenommen haben. Vor kurzem begann ich zu mutmaßen, dass vieles von dem, was unser chronisches Material aufrecht erhält, von nicht entlasteten gefrorenen Bedürfnissen stammt.

Perhaps more important, how can getting present assist us to better use RC? I got involved in RC in 1973.

    Completing an Early Triumph, Tim Jackins. My picture of it is that just about every child—and this means you—arrived thinking there would be somebody to meet. They’d been inside hearing about life through the wall, and they thought they were coming out to people, to creatures like them, who would be just as interested in life as they were and would look right at them.
