CPPP Spotlights: Sleep Special Issue, Challenge Case Special Section

History in the making—triple-partnered, coordinated special issue on Sleep! Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology, Journal of Pediatric Psychology, and Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics have partnered to produce a coordinated set of special issues focused on sleep in children with developmental or medical conditions. Each journal’s special issue has a particular focus. Consistent with its goal and vision, CPPP articles focus on clinical implications and interventions. Issues should be delivered soon and articles are available online. A huge thank you to Lisa Meltzer (CPPP), Dean Beebe (JPP), and Carolyn Ievers-Landis (JDBP) for their efforts in producing this unprecedented coordinated set of special issues.

Please consider submitting to CPPP’s newest section focusing on Challenging Cases. Paul Robins will be action editor for this section that is intended to address the clinical needs of pediatric psychologists working with challenging intervention cases in medical inpatient and outpatient settings. Each case will feature a challenge or challenges leading to poorer than hoped or negative outcomes, including: premature termination, difficulties using or applying an EBT (e.g., application within a primary care setting), patient, family, or setting characteristics (e.g., developmental delay, poor access to care, treatment team issues). One to two invited commentaries will follow, focusing on alternative clinical conceptualizations, treatment planning, intervention techniques, or outcome assessment. Please contact Dr. Robins if you would like to discuss a potential submission at robinsp@email.chop.edu.

Plan to attend the CPPP Editorial Board meeting at APA on August 4 from 12:00-12:50 p.m. at Hyatt Regency Denver Hotel Mineral Hall F. Hope to see you there!
