Webinar: Int’l Engagement in Applied Psychology in the Americas

International engagement can advance psychological science and improve service provision as long as it is done in a manner that is ethical, emancipatory, non-oppressive, affirmative, respectful, and mutually beneficial. In other words, such engagement must be collaborative, or as the joint task force’s report on APA’s Role in International Quality Assurance from the Board of Educational Affairs and the Committee on International Relationships in Psychology puts it, parties engaged in international collaborations must be “learning partners.” Furthermore, international exchanges in psychology have been predominantly along the East-West corridor, with a historical European focus and more recently an East Asian focus. This webinar seeks to expand such focus by highlighting challenges and opportunities in the North-Central-South corridor of the Americas and by offering a critical analysis of various modes of international engagement.

Division 52 Midwinter EC Meeting

On Wednesday March 2nd, the Division 52 Executive Committee gathered at Pace University in New York City for the division’s Midwinter Meeting. We began a Strategic Planning process to promote membership outreach, revisiting of the division identity, and expansion of the division’s international presence.

Jean Lau Chin (Division President, 2016) commented that the strategic plan will be a blueprint for our division’s future to identify “Where have we been?  Where are we now? and Where might we go?, and to actualize the division’s potential on international psychology”

Craig Shealy (2016 President Elect) commented on the outcome of the meeting adding “If we pool our collective suggestions, perspectives, and expertise, draw upon the extraordinary knowledge, experience, and connections of our distinguished leaders, create a prominent space for our students and early career colleagues to contribute and be heard, stay focused, supportive, and constructive, and listen deeply and respectfully to one another, we have every reason to believe that we not only can fulfill our potential as the division of international psychology, but chart a dynamic course together over the next two decades.

As a first, this EC meeting was made available through online video conferencing for those who could not join us face-to-face.  This is how we intend to engage our members more actively in the division. The International Leadership Network, presidential initiative of Jean Lau Chin, is a concrete example of what the division can do for its members. The Division 52 leadership looks forward to engaging with membership to achieve our goals and invites you to join the ongoing discussion through the open forum on the Div52 Listserv. If you are not currently a member of the listserv, please send a request to lforti@pace.edu.
