With the 2019 APA Convention underway, President Susan Regas, PhD, highlights exciting events and offerings for Div. 43 members. This issue also includes a discussion from Shelley Riggs, PhD, vice president for education, on the importance of broadening the general understanding of what constitutes families in her column on the diversity and complexity of contemporary families. In the vice president for practice column, Allison Hill, PhD, invites new fellow and President-Elect Shalonda Kelly, PhD, to discuss her role in couple and family psychology. Also in this issue, invited student author Marilisa Raju writes about sexual health and education disparities for Asian Americans in the student/early career psychologist (ECP) column, and Patricia Pitta, PhD, reviews the book Understanding Domestic Violence: Theories, Challenges and Remedies, edited by Rafael Art. Javier and William G. Herron.
As always, we hope that TFP will continue to be a resource for the members of Div. 43 as well as a forum for discussion. With this goal in mind, the editorial staff encourages you to submit articles, book reviews and APA convention related announcements for the fall/winter issue of TFP by Sept. 15. As always, we encourage submissions and collaborations from ECPs and students of couple and family psychology along with our more seasoned colleagues. Lastly, in the midst of the current political climate, TFP continues to welcome submissions about efforts to prevent and heal the pain of racism, sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia. Please send articles and reviews, or other materials directly to the editorial team via email, and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding submissions. Please send inquiries regarding book reviews to Reference Corner Editor Linda Berg-Cross, PhD.
