Division 49 Proposing New Journal for “Group Practitioners”

A proposal for a second journal for Division 49, Society of Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy, was presented at the Board’s August meeting in Washington, D.C. Based on survey results conducted earlier in the year among Division 49 members and the discussion at the Board meeting, there was strong support for a second journal. Discussion highlighted the preeminence of “Group Dynamics” as the esteemed journal of Division 49 but a second journal, focused more upon group work practice, would address an important need in our field. The immediate task at hand, then, is to complete the proposal, present it to the Board in January 2015 and then submit the proposal to an interested publisher. Due diligence requires processing several important details to ensure a successful outcome. We welcome questions and suggestions, so please contact the proposal committee chair or committee members.
