“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
With the holiday season leaving as quickly as it arrived, we face a new year with a clean slate—and a new look. Based on feedback from you, our readers, we refreshened the feel of the publication. Although the visual changes are subtle, our goal is to better highlight and provide the information you want and need to know to stay up-to-date with the latest in psychiatry.
In this issue, for example, you will find information about potential new treatments in schizophrenia. In the cover article, our editor in chief, John J. Miller, MD, shares his excitement regarding the additional options and formulations to further enhance patient care and improve outcomes. Of course, as Auld Lang Syne reminds us, old friends should not be forgotten as we look to progress and new tools.
With that in mind, our CME article focuses on another type of tool—recovery-oriented cognitive therapy (CT-R). Paul M. Grant, PhD; and Ellen Inverso, PsyD, explain how CT-R promotes wellness and empowerment for individuals experiencing serious mental health challenges, as well as provide strategies for using such in your practice.
Poet Edith Lovejoy Pierce once said, “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” Although nobody is assured a happily ever after, we hope that cover to cover, Psychiatric TimesTM can help you in writing this book, complete with some great plot twists.
