The intimate violence list will serve as a networking
system devoted to all aspects of family violence.  While
various other lists may explore the topics of child abuse or
violence within the family, the intimate violence list is
unique in that it serves a wide range of areas that
constitute the definition of intimate violence.  Our list is
designed to encompass all areas of interest regarding
family violence rather than limiting discussion to one
interest.  While welcoming responses generated from
research as well as intervention perspectives, the intimate
violence list will consist of discussion and debate
concerning the following topics:  physical child abuse,
sexual child abuse, child neglect, spousal physical
violence, spousal sexual violence, psychological abuse
and dating violence as well as any other areas of intimate
violence that subscribers may wish to explore.

On behalf of the Division of Clinical Psychology (Division
12) of APA, I am pleased to announce that we now have
an official division net open to all current members of
Division 12 and graduate student affiliates.  This new list
is not the same as the mailbase clinical-psychology list
(which is an open list).  If you are a member of APA
Division 12 or a graduate student affiliate, you are
welcome to join the list, and become an active contributor
to the net.

This list will provide an opportunity for the world-wide
membership of Division 12 (Clinical Psychology) of the
American Psychological Association to disseminate and
share ideas concerning the Division and Clinical
Psychology as a scientific endeavor and area of practice.

A committed group of clinical psychologists willing to
share their ideas and interests will enhance the scope of
this List. The topics of discussion will reside in the
members of the List.  All List members are encouraged to
be active participants.  Members will also receive a
weekly Digest which summarizes the topics of List
discussion for the week. CONTACT: Joe Plaud
(Plaud@Badlands.NoDak.Edu)

3B:     TUTORIALS ON PRESENTATIONS
        --------------------------
Jeff Radel, at the University of Kansas, has developed
some useful reminders about preparing posters and slide
presentations and placed them in hypertext format on the
Web.I've also developed two (so far) tutorials aimed at
introducing students to the concepts necessary to create
effective visuals and to design poster presentations -
admittedly with the added aim of reducing the amount of
time faculty spend repeating the same information to
different students.  If you have a hypertext browser (i.e.,
Mosaic) and Ethernet access to the World Wide Web,
check out these sites.  I'd be interested in your feedback.

3C:     TASK FORCE ON DISPLACED PROFESSIONALS
        -------------------------------------
The National University Continuing Education Association
(NUCEA) has established a Task Force focusing on
higher education's response to the education and training
needs of displaced professionals.  In many states,
especially here in Maryland, the tremendous change in
the nature of work, due to many factors (e.g.,
restructuring, infusion of technology, mergers,
international competition,etc.) has resulted in massive
and continual displacement of professionals.  The Task
Force has developed a conference to focus on this
important issue.  The conference is titled "Careers in
Transition:Higher Education's Role in Serving Displaced
Professionals" on January 26 and 27, 1995 in Washington
D.C.  Presenters include representatives from  Higher
Education, industry, and the U.S. Department Labor.
Please call NUCEA (202-659-3130) for a complete
brochure.  A portion of the conference will highlight
successful programs addressing the needs of displaced
professionals (e.g., needs assessment, training,
counseling programs, etc.).  If you would like information
about the call for papers,please contact Mary Kay Cote at
Penn State University (mkc1@oas.psu.edu)

Finally, the Task Force has established a listserv Dispro-L
to enable interested individuals to discuss higher
education's response to the needs of displaced
professionals.  We especially want to focus on
programming ideas, relevant readings, national and
international trends, research, and funding sources.
