Fenichel, Michael publishes Current Topics in Psychology since 1996, which includes reports and resources reflecting psychology practice, research, and education since the pre-social-media days of the last century. (The goal remains "giving psychology away" as well as providing resources for students, colleagues, and interns.). New articles highlight the media/technology/psychology interface as presented by some of our colleagues, and include Rutledge et. al., TransMedia Story Telling, Rizzo's "Virtual Reality Goes to War" and Zimbardo's "Analysis of a TED Talk". Visit the main Fenichel website.

Klein, Roger (University of Pittsburgh) recently produced six videos for SAGE Publishers in the areas of Research Methods and Statistics. The videos feature SAGE authors and are approximately 6 minutes each. They will be used by faculty who adopt SAGE textbooks and will be available to their students online. Roger produced two videos with Dr. John Creswell (University of Nebraska) on Mixed Methods and Qualitative Research, two with Dr. Neil Salkind (University of Kansas) on Introductory Statistics and Statistics Anxiety, and two with co-authors Drs. Dahlia Remler (CUNY, Baruch) and Gregg Van Ryzin (Rutgers Univ., Newark) on Research and Public Policy. In addition, four of Roger's students (three undergraduates and one graduate student) presented media posters through Division 46 at the APA convention in Orlando (see photo).

Koch-Sheras, Phyllis, PhD, and Sheras, Peter, PhD. Lifelong Love: 4 Steps to Creating and Maintaining an Extraordinary Relationship (Harlequin, July, 2012). 260 pages. Paperback. A recent review stated that “unlike many articles on the subject of relationship, this book provides a lot of depth and a variety of perspectives that if considered are likely to make the relationship, the ‘couplehood,’ a rich, successful and long-lasting one.” (Echo, October ’12).
