Books and apps will be reviewed on a regular basis and all will be posted on the website. Of these, 6 books or apps / digital media per year will be reviewed and published in CPF. These books are considered to be those that are likely to have a major impact and / or map onto the topic of special issues. The topics need to have relevance to the clinical psychology profession, but need not be solely clinical psychology specific.
Publishers will make books and apps available to reviewers and Tony Wainwright (books) and Joe Judge (apps) will actively liaise with them.
One page of CPF per month is kept for either reviews or apps (alternating between apps or other digital media and books).
