RADPSYNET RETURNS TO APA


Dennis Fox
RadPsyNet Co-coordinator

The Radical Psychology Network once again plans to meet at the American Psychological Association's summer convention. This time APA meets in Toronto, birthplace of RadPsyNet three years ago.

We expect to be listed again on the APA Convention Schedule as a non-affiliated group. The tentative date for the meeting is Friday, August 9, from 5 to 7 pm (Sheraton Centre, Kenora Room). No doubt followed by a search for another great restaurant!

Last year many of us finally got to meet face to face for the first time. We took care of some business and had some fun along the way.

This summer we'll hear reports on RadPsyNet projects and decide on future directions. Please try and make it!



PLEASE NOTE:

If you will be presenting a paper or if you know of sessions of interest to RadPsyNet members,

Please send the title, date, time and location to Jackie Klosek at


She will list these sessions in the next RadPsyNews.


BOOKS AND PUBLICATIONS

Greetings Folks:

A friend just shipped me a copy of the book, ECOPSYCHOLOGY. A very quick perusal looks promising. The gist will likely be, "It's the bottom of the 9th folks and bases are loaded!" Unless we begin to think of the planet as the exterior manifestation of our collective interiors (and real soon) we're not gonna get it this time. Nothing new here and it suddenly occurs to me that some of you out there might be contributing writers. Anybody read this work? Anybody write it?

Steve Dickinson

PSA PUBLIC SPHERE WEB SITE

Call For Submissions to New E-Journal

When the e-mail forum, psychoanalytic studies@sheffield.ac.uk was launched, it was intended that it should be associated with a journal with the same name and scope: the academic, scholarly study of psychoanalysis and related psychodynamic approaches.
