[#DIV28SUPER] Revised Senate Health Care Bill Worse Than First Version, APA Says

Revised Senate Health Care Bill Worse Than First Version, APA Says

Two-tiered insurance markets would force most vulnerable into more-expensive plans

WASHINGTON — The latest version of the Senate bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, is more damaging than the original draft, since it would support the creation of bare-bones health insurance policies that do not cover mental health and substance-use treatment and other vital services, according to the American Psychological Association. ...

[#DIV28SUPER] Call for Papers-ECP Special Issue

Call for Papers: Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology

 

Special Issue for April 2018 on:

Neuroimaging Research: Understanding the Role of Neuropeptides in Psychiatric Disorders

 

This special issue will provide an overview of the current status of research using neuroimaging methods (e.g., task-based and resting state fMRI, PET, MEG, or EEG) to investigate the role of neuropeptides in psychiatric conditions; it will also address continuing gaps and challenges in this field. We encourage articles representing the broad area of preclinical and clinical models of psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, substance use disorders, and eating disorders. We also strongly encourage articles that address sex differences, which are often overlooked in this body of research. We would be particularly receptive to a collaborative position paper co-authored by a preclinical and clinical researcher addressing some of the strengths, weaknesses and possible future directions to improve the use of neuroimaging methods to study neuropeptide involvement in psychiatric disorders.

 

Laboratories engaged in research in this area may submit review articles or primary research reports to Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology to be considered for inclusion in this special issue. Manuscripts should be submitted as usual through the APA Online Submission Portal (http://pha.edmgr.com/), and the cover letter should indicate that the authors wish the manuscript to be considered for publication in the special issue on Neuroimaging Research: Understanding the Role of Neuropeptides in Psychiatric Disorders.  All submissions will undergo our normal peer review. Manuscripts received no later than October 1, 2017 will be considered for inclusion in the special issue. We strongly encourage individuals to contact the guest editors in advance with their ideas and a draft the title and abstract.

 

Questions or inquiries about the special issue can be directed to the Guest Editors of the issue, Stephanie Collins Reed, PhD, at sc2432@cumc.columbia.edu or Gillinder Bedi, DPsych, at gb2326@cumc.columbia.edu, or the Editor, William W. Stoops, PhD at william.stoops@uky.edu.

[#DIV28SUPER] SAVE THE DATE: 2018 Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction Meeting-- March 15-17

On behalf of the Planning Committee, I am excited to announce that the next annual Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction (CPA) meeting, hosted by the Society of Addiction Psychology (SoAP, APA Division 50), has been set for March 15-17, 2018 and will take place at the Le Meridien Hotel in Tampa, Florida.

 

TWO NOTES:

 

1.       Please note that we have changed the structure of CPA from a 2-day (Friday-Saturday) structure to a 3-day structure. We will begin early afternoon on Thursday the 15th and go until early afternoon on Saturday the 17th.

2.       Before the main meeting starts in the early afternoon of the 15th, we will be holding 3 half-day, pre-conference seminars on the morning of the 15th. We have secured two but have room for one more. The ideal session will aim to teach a clinical and/or research skill to attendees. There will be an additional charge beyond the registration fee for attendees to take part in this session, which would be divided between CPA and the session leader(s). If you are interested, please contact CPA co-chairs Jen Merrill (jennifer_merrill@brown.edu) or Ali Yurasek (a.yurasek@ufl.edu).

 

Further information including the call for abstracts, registration and hotel reservation information will be forthcoming, but for now, PLEASE SAVE THE DATES!

 

Looking forward to seeing you all in Tampa!
