Course description

Publishing Your Work: Translation, Transition and Technique with Ann Scott

During your training you will have spent many hours researching and writing your clinical papers and dissertation. How can you turn this work into something suitable for publication? It can be particularly concerning thinking about the use of clinical material.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This workshop is open to trainees in the final year of their training and qualified counselling and psychotherapy practitioners.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

During this half-day workshop you will:

  • Learn about the process of translating existing work into a submission for publication.
  • Learn about the process of peer review in journal publication.
  • Understand the nature of publication anxiety and how we can work through it.

Training Course Content

The workshop will begin with a presentation by the tutor, Ann Scott, Editor-in-Chief of the British Journal of Psychotherapy. The BJP regularly receives submissions which are based on MA or MSc dissertations, and on occasion final-year qualifying papers. What is a journal looking for when these papers are received? How does writing in a training context differ from writing for publication? How is work written for one, largely individual purpose translated into work that can find its place in public space? The transition from writing as a trainee to writing as a prospective published author can stir up anxiety, and Ann will make use of Ron Britton’s well-known paper on publication anxiety as a way in to this theme.

Practical aspects – such as how to select which journal to submit work to; how the process of peer review works; how to integrate one’s writing with other parts of one’s life and work – will also be covered.

There will be ample opportunity for discussion. Attendees will then have an opportunity to work in pairs, mapping out their ideas for a submission (or more than one submission, if the existing work is a master’s dissertation). There will then be discussion in the full group, with a focus on next steps, and an opportunity to reflect on the experience of the morning.
