OAMHP is currently seeking members to contribute to our bi-annual publication of Psychologica magazine!
Psychologica is welcoming submissions for the next (summer-autumn) edition.
This will be a special edition addressing our professional response to COVID-19.
Here are some suggested themes you might wish to explore, but please do not feel limited by them. They are simply ideas to help get the creative process started.
What is the impact of COVID-19, or the consequences of safety restrictions in response to it, upon…
(i) our clients’ mental health,
(ii) ourself as a mental health provider, or
(iii) a unique or marginalized group,
that can inform our therapeutic response (best practices).
You may wish to describe the paradigm you approach you work from and how was it particularly well-suited to support your clients through this unique crisis.
How are you adapting your practice during this period? What have you learned: new techniques, considerations, methods, technology, or, importantly, ethical considerations as a consequence?
What concerns and/or opportunities arise in this crisis for our clients, for ourselves, and/or for our society?
For questions concerning submissions to Psychologica please see our guidelines. If that does not fully answer them, we welcome any specific questions you may have. Feel free to contact email@example.com
