How to write a paper for publication: Free Writing Workshops

 Registration is closed for this event
Free writing workshops for members to learn about writing a paper for publication.


Saturday 29 January 2022

10.30am-12 noon with Alex de Rementeria, JCP Editor in Chief and Gillian Sloan Donachy, Joint Course Lead for the child psychotherapy training at Human Development, Scotland

At the Journal of Child Psychotherapy, we would like to support potential authors with thinking through ideas for possible papers. Potential authors may be newly qualified, with qualifying papers or theses to work from, or they may be experienced clinicians who are out of the habit of writing.

Our aim is to offer an opportunity to explore the issues and challenges in the process of writing for publication, particularly when it comes to writing about clinical work. Some of the issues we will cover in the workshops are:

Why write and for whom?

Aims and scope of the Journal of Child Psychotherapy

Ethical publishing, issues of consent, the clinician/patient relationship and tone

Writing about research in the Journal of Child Psychotherapy

Structuring a paper

Common problems with submitting papers

Please come along whatever stage you are at. These workshops will offer a confidential space where you can bring writing or ideas to discuss. So, if you have a plan or some material that you would like help thinking about, bring that to share with the group. It is also fine if you just have an idea to explore and want to know more about consent or any other issue around writing and the publication process.

The first two of three planned workshops will have a general focus, while the third will specifically focus on writing about research, including papers emerging from doctoral theses, and it will be run by our Research Digest Editor, Rachel Acheson. Date for the further two workshops will be announced closer to the event dates. 

The workshops can accommodate a maximum of five attendees each, and this will be run on a first come first serve basis.
