Cate Bailey outlines the origin and goals of the new trainees' section of the BJPsych Bulletin. ‘Praxis’ will involve two components. The first will be clinically inspired and problem based. Trainees will have an opportunity to collaborate with experts from different disciplines to examine how existing literature and knowledge can be applied to practice, with a clinical scenario forming the basis for discussion. The second component will be made up of commissioned or proposed editorial-type articles on subjects which fall broadly under the heading of personal and professional development. This will offer a space for reflection on relevant contemporary topics such as resilience, burnout, supervision, and patient involvement and co-production.
