We invite you to write an article about a day in your life for a series of articles about psychiatry and self-disclosure, with the help of the editors at Psychiatric Times and Editorial Board member H. Steven Moffic, MD.
With the help of the editors at Psychiatric Times and Editorial Board member H. Steven Moffic, MD, we invite you to write an article about anything, from a day in your life to a transformative experience, for a series of articles about psychiatry and self-disclosure, “Portraits of a Psychiatrist’s Life.” It is meant to give a sense of the conflict, complement, and/or overlap between personal and professional lives and how one can seep into the other.
The article should convey a lesson learned or offer readers ideas to consider in their own lives and daily struggles and possible growth. Although the articles aren’t clinical per se, authors should feel free to use references and/or an additional-reading list. The goal is to help psychiatrists, so any additional information and resources could prove useful. Of course, we always need to be careful about confidentiality. Obviously, authors are aware these will be published after review, but if you are contributing stories that include patient information, the patient’s identity should be obscured.
Please submit your 1200-word manuscript and CV by December 31, 2018, for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Portraits” in the subject line. This is not a contest and selection is at the sole discretion of the editors. We cannot promise print publication, but if selected, your article will appear on our website.
