Welcome to the penultimate issue of Psychotherapy Bulletin for 2018!
As you will see in this issue, the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy was well represented at the APA Convention in San Francisco this year, and we enjoyed seeing many of you there. Make sure to read SAP President Mike Constantino’s Column for Convention “thank you”s and highlights, including SAP Award Winners, as well as Governance election results.
This issue of the Bulletin has a little something for everyone, from students (don’t miss pieces by our two Student Excellence Award winners), to Early Career professionals, to those at later stages of their careers. First up, a Special Feature on disclosure and concealment among court-involved adolescents. In addition, we are pleased to offer a variety of submissions related to our Special Focus of “Turning Points,” including an excerpt from an upcoming web-exclusive piece in which Dr. Philip Friedman reflects on 50 years of psychotherapy practice emphasizing practice-based evidence and effectiveness, as well as a Psychotherapy Practice article with pragmatic tips on closing a private practice (and, if you find that helpful, please check out next issue’s piece on retirement myths). As always, don’t miss the announcements, Domain updates, and other SAP business found throughout the Bulletin and on our website (https://societyforpsychotherapy.org/).
Of course, some turning points are harder than others. We would like to thank Dr. Lisa Wallner Samstag for this issue’s thoughtful Remembrance of Dr. Jeremy Safran, and offer our condolences to the many SAP members, readers, and countless others whose lives he touched.
Please consider contributing your work and ideas to Psychotherapy Bulletin. The deadline for the final issue of the year (and the last deadline for our “Turning Points” theme) is November 1, 2018. Submission guidelines can be found on the website (https://societyforpsychotherapy.org/publications/bulletin/about/).
We look forward to hearing from you!
