Issue Themes for 2014/2015  

  • Winter 2015:  Thinking: The winter 2015 issue of Psynopsis will focus on thinking. Articles can be focused on any aspect of cognition from how children learn, how people make judgements and decisions, intellectual functioning, how memory works as well as any of the factors or conditions that potentiate, degrade or remediate how we think.
     
  • Spring 2015:    Crisis Response / First Responders: We are inviting submissions from researchers and practitioners that offer information and perspective about the issues, factors and considerations when psychologists and other stakeholders respond to crisis and engage in crisis management. The focus is more on first response (crisis management) rather than tertiary response (treatment for PTSD). First response can include a diversity of responders and settings – policing or other correctional service response, health community response to medical crises (e.g SARS), social or health service response to environmental or political crises, health provider and educators responses to crises and issues within school communities.
     
  • Summer 2015:  Suicide
