Welcome to the last printed issue of Psychotherapy Bulletin! We are delighted to offer you a selection of articles focused on practice, research, education, and training, including three contributions in keeping with our continuing “difficult dialogues” theme. In this issue, authors explore the challenges and rewards of revealing diagnoses or sharing research with clients, practicing liberation psychotherapy or identifying as a feminist psychotherapist, and attending graduate school in psychology as a first-generation graduate or international student. Our new Contributing Editor for Ethics, Dr. Apryl Alexander, looks at current policy and ethical implications of conversion therapy, and we have a variety of interesting and timely columns, features, and updates (be sure not to miss the Student Award and 2017 APA Convention information). On a much more somber note, in this issue we also remember Dr. Eugene Gendlin, who died on May 1, 2017.
We join SAP President Jeff Zimmerman in welcoming our newly-elected Domain Representatives, and offer our hearty thanks to our outgoing contributors. It was wonderful to see so many SAP members in Denver for the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration conference in May (see below for a picture of our own Kevin McCarthy, PhD, receiving the Marvin R. Goldfried New Researcher Award). And for those of you attending to APA this summer, safe travels and enjoy.
August 1, 2017, is the deadline for our first digital-exclusive Bulletin format (you can find the announcement later in this issue and here: www.societyforpsychotherapy.org/bulletin-announcement), and we would love to hear from you with a contribution or idea. Submission guidelines can be found online, as can all kind of other wonderful content and information—check us out at: https://societyforpsychotherapy.org/publications/bulletin/about/ (and feel free to email Lynett and Cara directly with articles or feedback).
Thank you for your support of Psychotherapy Bulletin. Halfway through its 52nd year, the Bulletin remains a source of news for members, a place for the exchange of thought-provoking ideas, and a forum that welcomes experienced researchers and first-time authors, alike.
We hope you will join us on the next phase of our journey.
