This hands-on, four hour workshop will help participants learn the basics of professional publishing either in journals or books. It is aimed at clinicians, academicians, and other social workers interested in sharing their knowledge via publications. Following a didactic lecture, structured exercises will be used to help participants learn how to move from having a "germ of an idea" or an interesting topic to having a publishable paper or book. Participants are encouraged to come with an idea of what they would like to publish or an actual draft of a paper. The workshop will assist participants in clarifying publishing goals and objectives as well as gaining specific guidelines and tips that will help them become published authors. [Registration is limited to 20 participants].
