The Executive Board of Div. 49 is pleased to announce its first Div. 49 Institute. The goal of the institute is to raise attention to the cultural, social, and political contexts that are a part of group psychology and group psychotherapy. By striving to counteract historical oppressions and marginalization, we hope to envision a subdiscipline, and our larger field of psychology, as one that honors and uplifts all people. This can only be accomplished by understanding issues of oppression and marginalization from the perspective of those who are a part of these groups.
- Participate in leadership trainings concurrent with APA’s 2020 annual convention
- Observe and participate in portions of these Board meetings (2022 Mid-Winter meeting January 28–29; 2022 APA convention in Minneapolis, August 4–7).
