Monograph of the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work,
Published 2016, Issue 1 (Vol. 1.)
Letter from the Co-Editors
We are pleased to introduce two new on-line features to our professional community: The Monograph and The Salon. These innovative, virtual venues are available to AAPCSW members for publishing and disseminating our writing electronically. Accessible on our website, both venues promote AAPCSW and encourage members who have not written papers for presentation to do so.
The monograph appears as a compilation of articles on a single specialized subject. Our premier issue, The Art of Listening, serves as a vehicle for larger exposure of papers presented at our 2015 conference of the same name.
This material may be used freely in the spirit of open access for teaching, discussion with colleagues and personal use as long as attribution to the AAPCSW monograph and its authors is included.
Comprising various subjects and writing modalities, The Salon is designed to function as a virtual gathering space for members, a place where thoughts may be easily shared. It offers opportunity for reflection on and expansion of ideas and associations generated by having attended or presented at our national and local conferences and workshops.
We are excited about our inaugural issue of each venue and look forward to receiving future submissions. Please contact us with any questions you might have. Comments may be sent to: administrator@AAPCSW.org.
