Abstract: George Miller, in his famous 1969 speech as the president of the American Psychological Association, suggested that psychologists to do that (Andersson & Carlbring, 2003) - for instance, by creating a public service Web site that gives guidance to individuals about how to prevent or overcome a psychological problem. How does one go about creating such a Web site? In this article I will describe the approach I used to create several public service Web sites for problems ranging from bereavement (Malouff, 2005) to child obesity (Malouff & Schutte, 2005). Altogether, the sites receive about 70,000 hits a year, with my two most visited sites in dealing with strategies for solving problems (Malouff, 2002) and methods of helping young children overcome shyness (Malouff, 2004).
