|Issue 3, Vol.44||Psychology Careers
Psynopsis is calling for articles related to psychology careers. We would like to focus on the broad array of career pathways available to people with undergraduate and graduate psychology degrees – private industry, government, not-for-profit organizations, academia, research, health services, consulting, and more. Articles might relate to any of the following themes: the value of different training opportunities; mentorship options; the role of internships (practitioner and non-practitioner) in pursuing careers; challenges and benefits of different career paths; and the relevance of psychology study/training to success across different career paths and types. We also welcome articles on how psychology study/training can inform decision-making processes in private industry, government, health services settings, and universities – just to name a few. You can also describe your experiences pursuing different paths, lessons learned, and the contributions that psychology has made in your career.

|Issue 4, Vol.44||Societal Change
The “Societal Change” issue of Psynopsis will focus on the issues that can divide, polarize or contribute to conflict for individuals, communities and societies.
It will focus on psychology’s role in understanding, bridging, and/or applying evidenced based behavioural science on issues that are among the most challenging of our time; often issues about which people have a range of strongly held beliefs and opinions. These can include the climate crisis, identity politics, extremism, COVID-19 (masking, stay at home orders, vaccinations), medical assistance in dying, and privacy.
Guest editors: Dr. Kerri Ritchie, Ph.D., C.Psych and Dr. Meghan Norris, Ph.D.

|Issue 1, Vol.45||Disability Insurance
The Winter 2023 Issue of Psynopsis is focused on extended health insurance coverage of psychological services. As the readership is well aware, psychological services, provided outside of publicly funded institutions like hospitals and schools, are not covered by Canada’s medicare plans. People needing psychological services must either pay out of pocket or rely on extended health insurance plans, typically offered by employers, or covered through other insurance plans such as those associated with motor vehicle or workplace accidents. This issue invites submissions from members that focus on all issues and aspects of extended health insurance coverage including but not limited to:
Guest editors: Dr. Sam Mikail Ph.D., C.Psych and Dr. Carmen Bellows, R.Psych
