[DIV28M] Winters PAB error New Announcement Marijuana

All. An apology; the previously uploaded PAB announcement was sent to me in
error. The correct and current request is below. Note that Dr. Winters is one
of the contact people.


Call for Papers
Psychology of Addictive Behaviors

Special section on:
Marijuana Legalization: Emerging Research on Use, Health, and Treatment


Marijuana policies in the US are shifting towards medicalization and
legalization, and as a result prevalence rates and health consequences may
increase. Research on the potential effects of this drug is critical to inform
the public health debate.

Psychology of Addictive Behaviors is seeking empirical (research, both original
and meta-analyses) and theoretical (review) papers examining trends in
marijuana use and use disorders and clinically-related research on the drug's
addictive potential and health effects. The special section's aim is to profile
emerging theory and research on marijuana in the areas of epidemiology,
physiological, cognitive, and mental health, and treatment.

Manuscripts should be submitted as usual through the APA Online Submission
Portal (http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/adb/). The cover letter should
indicate that the authors wish the manuscript to be considered for publication
in the special section on Marijuana Legalization: Emerging Research on Use,
Health, and Treatment. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and must
adhere to usual journal requirements. The deadline for consideration for the
special issue is January 15, 2015.

Questions or inquiries can be directed to the Guest Editors, Ken Winters, Ph.D.
at winte001@umn.edu or Nancy M. Petry, PhD at npetry@uchc.edu.

[DIV28SUPER] Sorry about that...

Hello all,

I just sent a message to this list that was not intended to go the entire list (Subject: Re: [DIV28SUPER] APA Div 28 revised 7/16/2014).  I am terribly sorry about that.  Please ignore.

Sincerely,

Rich Allen

[DIV28M] Special Issue Psychology of Addictive Behaviors

Posted for Ken Winters PhD (Departtment of Psychiatry, University of
Minnesota) and PAB

Call for Papers: Psychology of Addictive Behaviors

Special Issue on
Neuroimaging and Psychotherapy Mechanisms of Change for Addictive
Behaviors

Translational research that increases understanding of brain mechanisms
underlying effective psychosocial interventions is critical to enhancing
treatment effects. Psychology of Addictive Behaviors is seeking both empirical
(research) as well as theoretical (review) papers examining potential brain
mechanisms that may underlie effective behavioral interventions for addictive
behaviors, broadly defined (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, tobacco, eating disorders,
obesity, pathological gambling) and across development (e.g., adolescents,
adults). The goal of the special issue is to highlight emerging theory and
research in the field of translational neuroscience on proposed or empirically
supported brain mechanisms (e.g., structure, functioning) that may moderate
and/or mediate treatment effects for addictive behaviors.

Manuscripts should be submitted as usual through the APA Online Submission
Portal (http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/adb/). The cover letter should
indicate that the authors wish the manuscript to be considered for publication
in the special issue on Neuroimaging and Psychotherapy Mechanisms of
Change for Addictive Behaviors. All submissions will be peer- reviewed. The
deadline for consideration for the special issue is October 1, 2011.

Questions or inquiries can be directed to the Guest Editors, Sarah Feldstein-
Ewing, PhD at sfeldstein@mrn.org or Tammy Chung, PhD at
chungta@upmc.edu.

Hey Rich,
 
I just wanted to check that you were going to post the brochure to the D28 listserv, right? I thought I was a subscriber and hadn't seen it yet. Best,

Hello Meyer et al.,
 
Brede would like credit card info by August 1.  I'd like to have this sorted, if possible, so that it's not MY credit card info guaranteeing the charge.  I'm sure you do not know if we'll know by then, but we did talk about a back up plan.  Would it make sense to hand this over to the official "backer-upper" for guarantee of the payment (rather than little old me?)
 
Thoughts and opinions on how to proceed are welcome.
 
Sincerely,
 
Rich

[DIV28SUPER] Program brochures for APA 2014

Hello Division 28 members,

Attached to this message you will find two pdfs with programing information for events at APA 2014:

1) Div 28 Program Brochure Final.pdf – This handy one-pager lists all Division 28 programming (sponsored and co-sponsored) at the upcoming 2014 meeting.

2) Alcohol and Drug Addiction Research @ APA 2014 Brochure - Listserv.pdf – This is a brochure put together in collaboration with NIDA, NIAAA, Division 28, and Division 50. While it doesn't contain all Division 28 programming, it does contain more division 50 programming than our Division 28 brochure. It also provides more detail about the presenters, notably the Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour participants – information that is not found in the APA program.

We think that both documents will be useful to you if plan to attend the convention this year, August 7 – 10, in Washington, D.C.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,

Rich Allen
Division 28 Program Chair
APA 2014

I. Short Course on the Genetics of Addiction http://courses.jax.org/2014/addiction.html

Limited scholarships may be available to help attendees with travel expenses  


Application Deadline July 24, 2014

 

Aug 28 - Sep 2 | The Jackson Laboratory - Bar Harbor, ME

 

The Genetics and Molecular Neurobiology Research Branch at NIDA is pleased to support the Jackson Laboratory Short Course on the Genetic of Addiction http://courses.jax.org/2014/addiction.html. It is the hope that this course will help build a cadre of investigators who are able to map and characterize the function of genetic variants for vulnerability to addiction in animals and human. 

 

This course emphasizes genetic applications and approaches to drug addiction research through methodological instruction based on literature, data sets and informatics resources drawn from studies of addiction related phenotypes. The course includes plenary sessions on major progress in addiction genetics, and discussion sessions in which students present their work for discussion on applications of genetic methods. Students will leave the course able to design and interpret genetic and genomic studies of addiction as they relate to their specific research question, and will be able to make use of current bioinformatics resources to identify research resources and make use of public data sources in their own research.
