Dear IPSO Members,

Welcome to the new online edition of our newsletter! We hope it will bring you the information you need and inspire you to become involved in the IPSO activities in your (or in any other) region. There are many upcoming events, as you will hear from the Vice Presidents of Latin America (LA), Europe and North America (NA). More in-depth reports from the past events can be found on our website. You will also see reports from the Treasurer and Editor and a Visiting Candidate Program Report. 

In the meantime, I would like to announce and welcome your participation in the newly developing IPSO Cross Regional Study Groups. We are organizing groups of 5-6 members from each region who will meet each month to work with clinical material. We intend for the groups to be open, and hopefully, you will meet and form working relationships with your international colleagues that will enable you to share, learn and become enlightened, ultimately enriching your work into the future. Please contact me if you are interested. The first groups will be in English, but if you are interested in working in another language, let me know and I will inform you when there is a group for you.

The Executive Committee (ExCom) is already working on the plans for the next
IPSO Congress in Boston, 2015. We look forward to receiving your submissions for paper presentations and supervisions. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions. Although there are numerous opportunities to meet before Boston, this will inevitably be the main event and the place where more of us will be able to study together. We will offer raffles in each region for the chance to have your registration paid. Please stay posted for more announcements.

Best to all for a good summer or winter depending on where you are!

Debra Zatz
