SPSSI - The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (Division 9 of the American Psychological Association) - is hosting "Honoring Black Women: Remembering Breonna Taylor with Social Justice Research, Activism, and Teaching" this Friday, December 11 at 11 am CT. This webinar will focus on Black women's unique experiences with police brutality, where it occurs, and how to address it. It will highlight the ways in which police brutality affects Black women's well-being and provide solutions for academicians to develop strategies that support Black women and the Black Lives Matter movement overall. This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Dionne Stephens (Florida International University) and feature several panelists, including: Ms. Thema Campbell (Girl Power Inc / World Literacy Crusade), Dr. Kecia Thomas (University of Alabama at Birmingham), and Dr. Sasha Panaram (Fordham University). Advanced registration is required here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_nTBrM2yMRPekUzYMd6sgDg
This 2017 article from SPSSI's Journal of Social Issues discusses the clinical implications of applying trauma theories to police violence, as well as diverse ways racially and ethnically marginalized persons have coped with and resisted these acts. There is attention given to the need to attend to the intersecting identities of persons who are targeted, such as ethnic minority women. Click below to read more.
***Call for Papers: Public Psychology: Cultivating Socially Engaged Science for the 21st Century*** American Psychologist invites submissions for a special issue on psychology’s role in social transformation, including research, advocacy, and practice that foregrounds psychologists’ roles as agents of positive social change. The goal of this special issue is to animate scholarly reflection on the theory and practice of "public psychology." If the "citizen psychologist" initiative encouraged psychologists to re-imagine their individual responsibilities to pursue the public good, public psychology suggests a paradigmatic shift in how psychologists cultivate the relationship(s) between science and society. The aim of this issue is to provoke, analyze, and explore the shape and content of public psychology as an emergent framework for imagining psychology otherwise, and for opening creative spaces for charting the future of the discipline with a renewed commitment to the promotion of justice, health, and equity across registers of social life. Important Dates -- 2-page abstract due: May 1, 2020 -- Invitation to submit a full-length manuscript will be sent: June 1, 2020 -- Deadline for manuscript submission based on approved abstracts: September 1, 2020 https://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/amp/call-for-papers-public-psychology
