With our new team of gung-ho editors, Kate White and Kerry Cerelli, we are about to embark on making the Journal more practice oriented and relevant to our readers’ interests. With that in mind we plan on creating sections within the Journal that will fall into the following categories: Research, Clinical Practice, Interviews, Reflections, and Book Reviews.
This section feature items in the news that are pertinent to prenatal and perinatal psychology. APPPAH does not necessarily agree with, or vouch for, the scientific worthiness of any of the news items mentioned here.
