Division 45 Program Theme:
40 Years of Cultural Competency Research: What Have We Learned?
Join us in Toronto for an outstanding and provocative program intended to discuss, analyze, and debate from a psychological perspective hot button issues dealing with race, ethnicity, and culture in American society including:
- What can we learn about the evolution of race relations from the election of President Obama?
- How can psychologists expand our focus to address structural racism and violence towards people of color?
- What are the cutting-edge approaches to prevention and intervention for vulnerable ethnic minority populations?
- How can we become more culturally competent in working with and studying people of different races, ethnicities, and intersecting identities?
These important questions will be discussed by leaders in the field as well as by researches, practitioners, and students. Many of the sessions will be interactive. This convention program has something for everyone and we hope you take the opportunity to participate as much as possible. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
Early registration ends June 30. The Division 45 Hospitality Suite, Business Meetings, and Social Hours will take place in the Intercontinental Toronto Centre Hotel.
