BAPPS has a new venture with Psychodynamic Practice, an international journal published by Taylor and Francis. We have already raised our world profile through one of our first papers – ‘Countertransference and tolerating ambivalence in supervision’ – by member, Hanoch Yerushalmi, from Israel, whose paper generated interest in BAPPS from Italy and South Africa. We wish to continue to spread the good work of BAPPS through your creativity and understanding of psychodynamic supervision.
This is your opportunity to write an article about some aspect of supervision that has meaning for you. How have you found giving supervision in the shadow of Covid 19? How has your psychodynamic understanding informed your work during this time? Psychodynamic Practice takes ‘main papers’, formal arguments with references, which are peer reviewed, 8,500 words; ‘Open space’ papers that are less formal, more like Op-Ed pieces, about 3000 words; Book Reviews of 1000 words and Book Review Essays of 3000 words. These are extended reviews with a compare and contrast element of other books and ideas.
You may have students that are in supervision training, or doing an MA, MSc. PhD whose papers could be prepared for publication through Bapps. Or, you might wish to submit a paper to prepare the ground for an upcoming book of your own. These are possible ways of building on what already exists rather than writing from a blank page.
There is further information about how to submit an article to Psychodynamic Practice available from Jo, and/or Melinda Meigs. The editorial team at PP is also willing to help with the process. We look forward to reading your contributions.
