By Jennifer Shroff Pendley
Thank you to all who attended the editorial board meeting in San Diego. We had a terrific turnout, and there continues to be much enthusiasm for the journal. During the meeting, we discussed some new initiatives. W. Hobart Davies, PhD, will serve as section editor for a new section on ethics. We are interested in illustrations of best practices for ethical problem solving, reviews of specific ethical situations, empirical work addressing ethical perceptions and situations and review and commentary on specific cases. Inquiries regarding the special section are highly encouraged and can be directed to Davies. In addition, A ssociate Editor Paul Robins, PhD, is developing a call for papers for new section focusing on clinician treatment challenges in which the outcome was less than desired. Clinicians will present challenging cases, followed by one or two case commentaries. Be on the lookout for this call for papers later this summer.
Our special issue on training competencies will be coming out later this summer.Papers focus on clinical applications of specific training competencies. Thank you Tonya Palermo, PhD, and your work group for preparing this special issue.
For those of you attending APA in Toronto, we will have another editorial board meeting Saturday, Aug. 8 at 1 p.m. at Intercontinental Hotel, Grenadier Room. We encourage all editorial board members to attend as well as anyone else interested in the journal. Our managing director from APA journals will attend the meeting as well.
