Videos on clinical writing

On this page we present 5 videos to inform and support your process of writing clinical papers for the journal.

The first is a brief introductory video from Amanda Dowd, Deputy Editor of the JAP.





We are delighted to have two videos and associated supplementary materials created by Suzi Naiburg, in collaboration with the JAP, on writing clinical papers for the journal. Suzi’s material, which makes use of some of the journal’s published papers, are based on her book, Structure and Spontaneity in Clinical Prose: A Writer’s Guide for Psychoanalysts and Psychotherapists (Routledge 2015).

Below you will find links to the additional resource materials related to her videos which are available for download.

Video 1 - focusing on the narrative axis of clinical writing


 Video 2 - focusing on the conceptual axis of clinical writing

Supplementary materials:

Writing exercises and examples for video 1: the narrative axis of clinical writing
Writing exercises, examples and additional references for video 2: the conceptual axis of clinical writing

Finally we have two videos from experienced writers and contributors to the Journal, Warren Colman and Mark Winborn, who each offer something of their own experience of writing as well as suggestions for what makes a good JAP paper.

The first is from Warren Colman, former Editor-in-Chief of the JAP.



The second is from Mark Winborn, former Editor of the Journal Reviews Section of the JAP.
