Sorry for the confusion. I offer four arguments in defense.
1. As Chairman of the Public Information Committee for TIRA (the governing board of Metapsychology), I have permission to post this article. See http://www.tir.org/metapsy/contactus.htm Also, my wife is President of TIRA as you can also see there.
2. A WHOIS search will note that TIR.ORG is maintained by me and in fact has been in my house since 1996.
3. I also have verbal permission from the author, Frank A. Gerbode, M.D. with whom I have been friends for 20 years.
4. www.healing-arts.org is a mirror of TIR.ORG which is the "original" source of this document.
Please reply with the appeals process and a pointer on how to avoid problems in the future. Thank you
Victor R. Volkman

Is there some reason why the biography does not mention that Frank Gerbode was formerly a scientologist? https://tonyortega.org/2013/04/13/the-saga-of-david-mayo-scientologys-banished-tech-wizard/ JON: A small group of former high ranking Scientologists got together in Santa Barbara, in 1983, and set up their own alternative to the cult — the AAC. They included Mayo and his wife Julie, former Executive Director International John Nelson, and Harvey Haber, who had produced the tech films and paid St Martin’s Press to publish Battlefield Earth (the cult bought the first 40,000 copies and gave $250,000 for promotion). Bob Mithoff, brother of Mayo’s replacement, was also there from the start, but it turned out that he was there to spy on them for Scientology. It’s worth noting that even with a spy in their midst, the AAC failed to be shut down by Scientology, which says a lot for the AAC’s high standard of ethics. Eventually, it was the pressure of litigation that closed the place. Mayo had moved to the Institute for Research into Metapsychology, run by psychiatrist Frank Gerbode (the only psychiatrist in Scientology!).
Duplicate citations: preferred book edition
I've given a moderately thorough read to the citing sources documentation and am unclear if there is a preference on using the first edition of a work or if all editions are of equal "value". In this case, Gerbode cites is own work as 1989 when he writes about it in Gerbode, Frank (May 2006). "Traumatic incident reduction: a person-centered, client-titrated exposure technique". Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment & Trauma. 12 (1–2): 151–167. doi:10.1300/J146v12n01_08. Skilfullycurled (talk) 17:38, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
Misleading redirect to TIR
I'm new to editing and the procedure for managing/changing/deleting redirects is pretty extensive so I'm not sure how to go about it.
The redirect for the definition of Traumatic incident reduction (TIR) leads to the section on the page Abreaction called Abreaction therapies.
1. It meets both qualifications (the second at the very least) for item 10, of the reasons for redirect deletions, "If the redirect could plausibly be expanded into an article, and the target article contains virtually no information on the subject.
2. I believe this could also be considered for deletion under item 3 regarding confusion. While there isn't a topic under the therapy types for Abreaction, there is a therapy example from Scientology. Gerbode used to be a Scientologist, and appears to have been informed by his time as one. However, TIR is not a therapy from scientology. It is listed as an evidence based theory, which has appeared in books and peer reviewed journals (see citations on this pate). Skilfullycurled (talk) 18:26, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
