Student Poster Awards for Diversity and Social Justice in Groups
Div. 49 (The Society for Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy) will have a special, supplemental program at the Div. 49 social hour during APA's 2020 convention on Aug. 6-9, in Washington, D.C. We are soliciting proposals for student posters with themes central to the promotion of cultural diversity and equity. Student Poster Awards will be given to the top three posters: cash prizes of $300, $200, and $100 for the first, second and third place, respectively.
Posters may present research, practical/clinical work or advocacy efforts aimed at promoting cultural diversity in groups – broadly defined as small groups that may or may not be therapeutic (e.g., work/task groups, counseling groups, sports teams). The (first) author of the poster must be a student (or have completed the project while a student or intern) and must either be a student affiliate of Div. 49 or sponsored by a Div. 49 member.
The deadline for proposal submissions is March 15, 2020. To submit a proposal, please send an email to Lisa De La Rue with all of the following:
- Names, institutions, emails, phone numbers and APA as well as Div. 49 membership status for all presenters.
- Title of proposal.
- An abstract of no more than 500 words.
