Society of Indian Psychologists Retreat and Convention June 22nd-26th, 2018
On behalf of the Executive Council of the Society of Indian Psychologists and the Department of Psychology at Utah State University, we are excited to announce the Call for Papers and Presentations for the 31st Annual Convention of American Indian Psychologists and Psychology Graduate Students (aka The SIP Convention) which is being held on June 25 & 26, 2018 at Utah State University. Our invited keynote speaker this year is Dr. John Gonzalez, Ph.D.
The conference is being held in the Taggert Student Center on the USU Logan Campus. Registration for the conference is $10 and includes breakfast both days and lunch on Tuesday.
There will also be a retreat prior to the conference at the Franklin Basin Horse Camp and Bear Lake Training Center Friday, June 22nd through Sunday, June 24th. Registration for the retreat is $10 and includes breakfast and lunch Saturday and Sunday, as well as dinner Friday and Saturday. The retreat is a great opportunity to get to know people before the conference in a relaxed atmosphere. Lodging (dorm-style rooms with bunk beds) is available at the training center and camping is available at the horse camp.
This includes poster abstracts. Posters are a great way to talk about and further inform our ideas. They do not have to be limited to typical research studies and can include well-developed proposals. We would like to continue to have more students submit abstracts.
Note: SIP applied to APA to become an APA approved sponsor of Continuing Education programs. This was in response to many states' regulations and requirements for CE credits. There may be a differential cost for CE credits pending our application review. If approved, the fees for CE credits can be paid onsite during the convention.
This convention is a great opportunity to learn more about Native culture and working with Native populations. It is a casual and welcoming conference and very inexpensive. Email Melissa (email@example.com) if you have any questions. We hope to see you this year!

To kick off the Division 45 webinar series centered on Radical Healing we invite you to join us on Twitter for a #RadicalHealingChat. We will discuss what radical healing is, what it looks like in our lives presently, and how we can spread more of it as mental health professionals. Join us Wed 3/28 from 8-9 PM ET!
Then, we are focusing on how students navigate challenging and/or oppressive spaces (e.g., graduate programs, internships, practicum sites) and practice radical healing during our first webinar on Fri 3/30 from 12-1 PM ET. Join the webinar by clicking here: paloaltou.zoom.us/j/504964954 . The video recording will be available at a later time.
The psychology of Radical Healing is grounded in collectivism and conceptualized as encompassing critical consciousness, strength, hope, and cultural authenticity as a means to resist oppression and strive for liberation (French, Lewis, Mosley, Adames, Chavez-Dueñas, Chen, & Neville, 2018). APA Division 45 President Helen A. Neville and colleagues look forward to being in community with you this year as we focus on PROMOTING HEALING THROUGH SOCIAL JUSTICE! Please see the attachment for additional upcoming webinars!
We would like to extend an invitation to you to serve as a reviewer for the 2018 American Psychological Association Division 45 Conference which will take place July 19-21, 2018, in Austin, Texas. We seek reviewers with scholarship and practice expertise in the psychological study of culture, ethnicity, and race to assess the quality of submitted work and provide instructive feedback on abstracts. We welcome those with a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree as well as Ph.D./doctoral level students to serve as reviewers.
The number of abstracts each reviewer reviews each year depends on the total number of abstracts and the number of reviewers we are able to secure. Our goal is to have enough reviewers so that each individual will review no more than 10 - 12 proposals. Each abstract of approximately 200 words is read by two reviewers, and the reviewers’ scores will be averaged. Please note that, although you may volunteer to be a part of the review process, not everyone who volunteers will be asked to serve.
All reviews will be conducted online, and reviewers will receive their assignment with instructions (e.g., rating system, criteria) no later than March 16, 2018. We request that reviewers send feedback on assigned abstracts back to us no later than April 3, 2018. Unfortunately, due to a fixed production schedule for the conference, there is no flexibility with respect to deadlines. Thus, at the same time as we encourage your participation, we ask that you verify that you can be available and have access to internet between March 16th and April 3nd.
We would greatly appreciate your contribution to the Division 45 Conference and to our collective discipline. Your constructive reviews will help ensure the quality of the research, practice, and professional development information that is disseminated to 2018 Division 45 Research Conference attendees. Also, a list of reviewers will be available in the meeting program book pdf.
If you would like to serve as a reviewer, please visit: convention2.allacademic.com/one/div45/div4518/ by March 16, 2018. On the submitter main menu, select “Volunteer to Review” and follow the prompts. If you have submitted a proposal for review, you are still eligible to volunteer, but you will not be assigned to your own proposal.
Thank you in advance for considering our invitation. Please share this call widely, and we look forward to hearing from you!
