Spotlight on Section III
Spotlight on Section V
President Pam Remer, PhD, is an associate professor of counseling psychology at the University of Kentucky. Her presidential theme, “Advancing the Future of Feminist Psychological Practice: Education, Research, and Therapeutic Practice,” focuses on exploring the present status and identifying and advancing the future of feminist psychological practice. Her goals are to enhance SPW’s impact on the development of feminist practice and to increase the presence and use of feminist and social justice perspectives within psychology as a whole. Her presidential task forces address feminist perspectives on evidence-based practice, creation of an American Board of Professional Psychology certification in feminist psychological practice and identification of current and future models for feminist psychological practice.
Sponsored by the Society for the Psychology of Women, this blog uses a feminist framework to examine, critique and respond to the popular attitudes, images, music and other media that affect the psychological development of girls and women.
Happy 40th Birthday to the Committee on Women in Psychology
Going to APA in Hawai'i? Celebrate the Committee on Women in Psychology's 40th birthday during the Division 35 social hour Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013, at 3 p.m.
The Society for the Psychology of Women was established in 1973 as Division 35 of the APA. The society is devoted to providing an organizational base for all feminists, women and men of all national origins who are interested in teaching, research or practice in the psychology of women. Our purpose is to promote feminist scholarship and practice, and to advocate action toward public policies that advance equality and social justice. We are a voice of feminist issues within organized psychology.
It is not necessary to be a psychologist or a member of APA to join the society. All members receive the Psychology of Women Quarterly journal and the Psychology of Women Newsletter. Check out our "help wanted" section to learn about current position openings and volunteer opportunities to help the division. Once you become a member there are many ways to get involved in the society.
