Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology

Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology ® (CPPP) is a scholarly journal of the Society of Pediatric Psychology publishing peer-reviewed papers representing the professional and applied activities of pediatric psychology.

Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology will:

  • Describe the breadth and richness of the field in its diverse activities.
  • Complement the scientific development of the field through highlighting applied and clinical activities.
  • Provide modeling that addresses the ways practicing pediatric psychologists incorporate empirical literature into day-to-day activities.
  • Emphasize work that incorporates and cites evidence from the science base.
  • Provide a forum for those engaged in primarily clinical activities to report on their activities and inform future research activities.

The first issue of Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology will appear in spring 2013. Articles will include a range of formats such as commentaries, reviews, and clinical case reports in addition to more traditional empirical clinical studies. Articles considered for publication will include but not be limited to the following:

  1. Professional and training activities in pediatric psychology and interprofessional functioning.
  2. Funding/reimbursement patterns and the evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of clinical services.
  3. Program development, organization of clinical services and workforce analyses.
  4. Applications of evidence based interventions in ‘real world’ settings with particular attention to potential barriers and solutions and considerations of diverse populations.
  5. Critical analyses of professional practice issues.
  6. Clinical innovations, e.g., emerging use of technology in clinical practice.
  7. Case studies, particularly case studies that have enough detail to be replicated and that provide a basis for larger scale intervention studies.
