Public Education and Media Dissemination Committee Interest Form

Public Education and Media Dissemination  Committee

The Public Education and Media Dissemination (PEMD) Committee is looking for contributors for our Briefing Book initiative. This project provides journalists and members of the public with accessible & evidence-based information. Our first Briefing Book on Suicide is available here:

Why does ABCT publish briefing books? Much of the cutting edge science in our field is locked behind a paywall, meaning journalists often don’t have access to the most up-to-date information. So, if you’ve been looking for a chance to contribute to public education and science communication, this is it! 

We need contributors to help bring these books to fruition. Contributors write 1500-2000 words on a subtopic of their choosing. Currently we are planning Briefing Books on Gun Violence and Bullying.  One time contributors, as well as contributors interested in joining the committee long term are welcome. If you have expertise in the areas of gun violence, peer victimization or bullying and would be interested in this project, or would like to learn more, please reach out to PEMD chair,  Emily Bilek ( for more information. 

If you are interested in joining the Public Education and Media Dissemination (PEMD) Committee, please fill out the information below!
