Call for Proposals on the theme of "Building bridges, building power: Interdisciplinary collaboration to empower diverse families and communities"
Div. 43 invites program proposals for APA's 2020 convention. While all proposals relevant to couple and family psychology research, practice and training will be considered, we encourage the submission of proposals that address the theme of Building bridges, building power: Interdisciplinary collaboration to empower diverse families and communities. In particular we are interested in programs that discuss:
-Collaborative practice: How do multidisciplinary teams work to enhance the biopsychosocial outcomes of diverse couples, families and communities.
-Interdisciplinary research: How can scientists from various specialty areas in psychology (e.g., clinical, law, brain research, community) share their expertise to advance knowledge about diverse couples and families?
-Advocacy: How does collaborative practice and interdisciplinary research advance the translation of knowledge into policy decisions and actions that empower and improve the well-being of couples, families and communities?
