2018 Bulletin Editors’ Column 53(4)

Clinical Impact Statement: This issue has a little something for everyone, from Education and Training pieces looking at the professional development of trainees in supervision and the climate of clinical training, to considering the implications of diagnosis and assessment from an Ethics perspective, to considerations for working with clients with specific diagnoses, such as Borderline Personality Disorder or Autism Spectrum Disorder, to a review of the state of multicultural counseling competencies research for our Diversity Domain.

As the year draws to a close, we are pleased to bring you the final Psychotherapy Bulletin for 2018. This issue has a little something for everyone, from Education and Training pieces looking at the professional development of trainees in supervision and the climate of clinical training, to considering the implications of diagnosis and assessment from an Ethics perspective, to considerations for working with clients with specific diagnoses, such as Borderline Personality Disorder or Autism Spectrum Disorder, to a review of the state of multicultural counseling competencies research for our Diversity Domain.

We are especially delighted to bring you several Special Features, including a look at Psychotherapy: The Next 50 years by Drs. John and Rita Sommers-Flanagan; a discussion of professional competence and ethical practice when “going it alone” by Dr. Jeff Barnett and Kendall Corcoran; and three “Turning Points,” including a piece on retirement myths by Dr. Tom Barrett.

We truly appreciate all of the contributions from our authors this year, and join SAP President Mike Constantino in thanking our Domain Representatives, Contributing Editors, members of Governance, and all of the others who have helped make this year such a memorable one for the Society (please see the President’s Column in this issue). We also look forward to things to come—for a sneak peek, see the President-Elect’s Column, in this issue, as well.

We would also like to express our gratitude to Dr. Constantino and the members of the Publications Board for their ongoing support, and to our Editorial Assistants, Salwa Chowdhury and Cory Marchi, and SAP’s fantastic Web Team, Dr. Amy Ellis, Kourtney Schroeder, and Elizabeth Kilmer, for their amazing work. I (Lynett) would also personally like to thank Associate Editor Dr. Cara Jacobson for her invaluable assistance with every issue.

And our final “thank you” for the year goes to you, our readers! On that note, please consider writing for the Bulletin in 2019! Our submission guidelines can be found online  https://societyforpsychotherapy.org/publications/bulletin/about/), and our deadlines are:
February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.

Wishing everyone a safe and joyous end of 2018, and a wonderful beginning to the year to come.
