Participants interested in undertaking an independent writing project will have the option of working with a consultant. The topic selected may be theoretical, clinical, or applied, and may be on research already in progress. Some students may choose to write memoir, fiction, or poetry. Participants can select from an international roster of consultants; the current panel. Program advisors will help the participants to select appropriate consultants. In addition, we will make available bibliographies of the consultants’ writings to assist in consultant selection. Work with the consultant may include discussions of how to define the research area, finding resources for background study, the elaboration of the concept, and review of successive drafts of the paper. Collaboration may be conducted by mail, phone, fax, e-mail, or, where possible, in person. The participant will pay for the consultant’s time.
