  • Liepa Vasare Gust and Natallia Sianko are the Washington Fellows of the American Orthopsychiatric Association for 2011–2012 and 2010–2011, respectively. Fellows address issues identified by an Association advisory group, and the general perspective presented is consistent with that of the Association. However, the specific opinions are official statements by the Association only if they are endorsed by a vote of the Board of Directors.

  • Inside the Beltway is written with the guidance of, and editing by, the chair of the advisory group, Gary B. Melton, who also serves as the Washington Fellow’s principal mentor.
