Using the material on the site
As you will notice there is a large
bibliography and reference
section in the site. This is because it is important to acknowledge
where ideas came from and the sources used for establishing what is
communicated. Watton on the Web provides all the material free for use but
would expect recognition in any serious work. Please read
copyright and disclaimer page for how
recognition should be given.
It is also, important to explain that if anyone is in any of
the situation described in the site they should go to a professional for help
such as their Pastor or Minister or a profession and recognised Counsellor,
