SASP Student Research Forum review

Includes a list of 2012 forum presenters

Thank you to all of you who were able to make it to the SASP Student Research Forum (SFR) and Social at APA. It was a very successful event, and we received positive feedback from all in attendance. We would especially like to thank Dr. Susan Swearer, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Dr. Michael Furlong, University of California-Santa Barbara, for their informative and motivating presentations on the APPIC internship process (PDF, 844KB) and positive psychology (PDF, 8.6MB). We would also like to thank Division 16 for their generous sponsorship of our APA events and our student presenters (see full presenter list below) — without all of you none of this would be possible! If you have feedback you’d like to share about this year’s SRF or ideas/suggestions for next year, please contact our Convention Chair. We hope to see all of you at APA in Hawaii next year.
