2A:            neuropsych in (HIV/AIDS) list / conference
List Serve:

The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum for
communication among mental health professionals who
are engaged in clinical practice with and/or research
regarding individuals with HIV disease. The HIV/AIDS
population is somewhat unique in the degree to which
neuropsychological dysfunction is likely to result from a
combination of neurological, psychopharmacological
and psychological factors. This will not be a forum for
current debate(s) and research about the etiology
and/or prevention of AIDS.

Membership will be limited primarily to those with an
M.D., D.O., and/or Ph.D in clinical or counselling
psychology. Psychology graduate students (clinical and
counselling) and others who: (1) currently are engaged
in professional research about (and/or supervised pre-
doctoral clinical work) with individuals who have
HIV/AIDS related neuropsychological dysfunction, or
(2) otherwise have substantial demonstrable facility with
the medical and/or psychological challenges confronted
by mental health care professionals who are working
with individuals who manifest HIV-related
neuropsychiatric dysfunction will be considered for
membership on a case by case basis. As in the
university setting, pre-requisites possibly, albeit
infrequently, may be waived in exceptional cases.

3A:       Scientific American
Please take note of the December issue of Scientific American.
There is an excellent article on peer review of papers created
for distribution on the internet, also models for researcher/
student interaction & the expanding role of libraries as
electronic information providers. It's on page 106 and
entitled 'The Speed of Write' by Gary Stix.

3B:       Asian Disaster Preparedness Center
ADPC works to assist countries in Asia and the Pacific region
in developing their policies and capabilities related to
disaster management. The subject of traumatic stress caused by
disaster events has not been a very high priority on our
agenda, but it certainly is one of the areas in which we do
have an interest.  It may also be interesting for some of the
members of the Traumatic Stress Network to know of a new
publication published in the Philippines: "From Victims to
Survivors. Psychosocial Intervention in Disaster Management".
By Dr. Lourdes Ladrido Ignacio, M.D. and Dr. Antonio P.
Perlas, MD, M.P.H, Manila 1994 ISBN No. 971-8982-00-0.
