Please widely distribute this announcement and encourage interested students to submit.
Do you want to have your work read by academics, clinicians, students, and affiliates who share an interest in trauma psychology? If so, here is a wonderful opportunity to submit an abstract for an article for publication in Division 56 Trauma Psychology Newsletter!
The Trauma Psychology Newsletter (TPN) covers advances in theory, research, clinical practice and policy within the field of trauma psychology. It is also a forum for sharing Division 56 news and information about professional activities and opportunities.
This is a call for abstract submissions for future issues of the Student's Corner section of the Trauma Psychology Newsletter, which features selected articles authored by graduate students on topics of interest especially relevant to the field of trauma psychology. Although the goal is to highlight student perspectives and experiences in the field, we strongly encourage use of empirically supported references pertinent to the current trauma literature to support your article. Creativity is also highly encouraged!
Interested students should email an abstract of up to 100 words detailing your proposed article to: Amy Berman, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Melissa Duguay, M.A. (email@example.com) by the deadline of April 28th, 2017.
The final word count for articles selected for publication will be a maximum of 1,500 words. Please note that authors do not need to be members of the APA or Division 56 in order to contribute, and submission of an abstract is not a guarantee of publication. We encourage you to review past issues of the Trauma Psychology Newsletter’s Student’s Corner at traumapsychnews.com.

Given our interest in immigration policy, I want to let you know that APA has sent the attached letter to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to express our serious concern about his proposal to separate undocumented immigrant families at the border. APA has long based our immigration policy and related advocacy efforts on keeping families together, so it was important for us to send this letter with its evidence-based arguments. You will notice in the letter that we are also requesting a meeting with the Secretary to discuss this matter in further detail. I am pleased to acknowledge the contributions of Division 27 (Society for Community Research and Action – Community Psychology) in drafting this letter from its inception. Our APA advocacy efforts are strengthened by such collaboration with our divisions. Sincerely, Tony ... See MoreSee Less
