News Date: Saturday, September 7, 2019 - 16:00

SoAP Box Sound Bites. In 50 words or less, please respond to the following prompt—What do you think is the most interesting or important area of research in addiction psychology and why? 

Show and Tell.  This is the place to show off your recent accomplishments, accolades, awards and/or to and highlight the cool ways in which you promote your lab (websites, Facebook pages, Instagram accounts, etc.). Send us a link and description of your current projects, awards, or media attention you may have received, and any other information that you would like to share with our readers. Please limit responses to 200 words.

Community Corner.  For the coming issue, I want to hear about ways in which you are using novel methods and approaches to actively engage your communities. Please limit responses to 200 words. 

Clinical Translation.  Do you have any recently published work that you wish you would have had more room in the manuscript to discuss clinical implications and applications?  We would love for you all to share recently published work and give us more information about how your research findings could be useful for clinicians.  Please limit responses to 1,000 words. 

Finding Success in Failure.  Finding Success in Failure. In line with the recent trend of prominent academics and clinicians sharing their “CVs of Failures”, we want to hear about a time in your career that things didn’t go your way. For this next issue, we want to hear about a time when you worked with a challenging patient/client.  What is your process for managing this experience, what did you learn from the experience, and what would you recommend to others who are working with a challenging patient/client? Please limit responses to 500 words.   

Ethical Issues.  In this column, we are looking for articles focused on describing ethical issues you may come across in your research and/or addiction-related clinical practice.  Specifically, we want to hear what the ethical issue was, how you handled it, and lessons learned. Some examples could be issues related to googling patients, how you handled it when a patient contacted you on social media, or what happens when you run into a research participant out in the real world. Please limit responses to 500 words.
