Salary: Voluntary

Role description:
The British Journal of Psychotherapy Editorial Board is seeking new members, to join the current Board members and representatives of the journal’s stakeholder organizations. Expressions of interest are invited from individuals with experience of analytic work with adults, children, groups or institutions, covering all the main analytic orientations. Individual expertise is welcomed, for example (but not exclusively), in qualitative and quantitative research, neuropsychoanalysis, intercultural therapy, disability, gender, diversity and trauma studies. We are also looking for a Board member to manage the annual Rozsika Parker Prize and Estela Welldon Prize.

These are absorbing and rewarding roles. Board members play a full part in all activities of the Journal, from peer reviewing to the development of journal policy and of special journal sections. A meeting of the Board takes place three times a year (currently on Zoom). The initial appointment is for three years, with a potential to renew for a further two years.

Board members need to be qualified and experienced clinicians, BPC or UKCP (CPJA) registered, and/or psychoanalytic academics. They are likely to have experience of supervision and/or teaching. Prior experience of writing, editing or publishing is desirable.

We encourage engagement with clinicians and academics from historically underrepresented groups, and wish to contribute to building a more inclusive and equal community of analytic practice.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Wednesday 1 June 2022. For a listing of the duties of an Editorial Board member, please contact Paula Potter, BJP Editorial Administrator (BPF). Expressions of interest should include a copy of your CV, and a one-page statement indicating why you would like to join the BJP Editorial Board and how you see your experience qualifying you for the role, and should be sent to Paula Potter: bjp@bpf-psychotherapy.org.uk Appointments will be made in consultation with the new Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, later this year.

If you would like to have an informal discussion about the role, please email Editorial Board members Joan Fogel (joan@fogel.co.uk) or Poul Rohleder (poul.rohleder@gmail.com)
