ABP-L, Email Discussion List
ABP-L is a confidential email discussion list, hosted by the ABP, exclusively for the ABP membership. The primary goal of this discussion list is to facilitate and promote information sharing, brainstorming, and communication between ABP members on all levels. This includes the discussion of current research, questions related to casework, and networking students with similar minded professionals.
When posting messages to ABP-L, the following guidelines must be observed:

- Members may post relevant commercial and non-commercial training and conference announcements.
- Members may post regarding past, current, or future cases that are in the public domain. Discussions referring to cases or case information that is not in the public domain must be appropriately sanitized, with the proper level of confidentiality observed. If a list member recognizes the case in its sanitized version, confidentiality is still expected to be maintained.
- Members may post regarding past, current, or future research interests or findings.
- Members may post regarding ethical issues.
- Members may post critiques and questions regarding published material.
