Scientific research backs our experience that the effect of self help programs is maximized by following a defined order. That way, the modules help you to build up your knowledge and skills.

This allows you to practice in “real life” with what you learn online.
To be able to advance to the next session, you must first study all topics of the current session. You will have to mark each topic as “Complete” to be able to progress. You will also have to complete Assignments and Exercises to progress.

Code of Conduct
The HONcode is the code of conduct of the Health On the Net Foundation and is applied for voluntary health/medical websites. It was initiated in 1995 and has since grown to become the most widely used and best trusted ethical code for health/medical websites.

The Open Forest website is medical in nature and thus, may include health or medical information. This content is posted for informational and educational purposes only. Open Forest in no way engages in the practice of medicine and does not render medical advice.
Being a brand new kid on the block, we are in the process of applying for HONcode certification. As long as we are not certified, we are not allowed to say we follow the HONcode. Let’s just say we will proudly announce we follow the HONcode once we are through the certification process. For now we can claim that we do follow all individual HONcode principles.
