[#DIV28SUPER] APA Collaborative Program Deadline is this Friday (10/14/16)

Greetings everyone,

Just a reminder that the deadline for collaborative program abstracts is this Friday (10/14/16). More information is below, and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Warm regards,
Kelly Dunn, Ph.D.

The 2017 American Psychological Association Convention will be held from August 3rd – 7th in Washington DC.  As your incoming 2017 Program Chair for Division 28, I ask you to please consider submitting an abstract for the convention. You may submit abstracts for Collaborative Programming (described below, Due October 14), Continuing Education Workshops (Due November 14),  and conventional abstracts for posters or symposiums (Due December 1) . 

Full details are available in the APA Call for Convention Proposals (PDF, 5.8MB).

The link to additional convention information is available here:  http://www.apa.org/convention/proposals.aspx

I will send reminders as the deadlines approach. Please note that Collaborative Programs must be sponsored by more than 1 Division, so please consider contacting me with ideas you may have prior to your submission to help ensure your proposal will meet the requirements for review.
What is a Collaborative Program?

A collaborative program pulls together multiple perspectives on a topic significant to psychology and, where relevant, to society at large. It is a cohesive session that showcases multiple perspectives and involves more than one core area of psychology (i.e., science, practice, education, public interest). Psychologists frequently work in teams across interest areas and disciplines. Collaborative sessions are therefore encouraged to reflect interdisciplinarity and relevant aspects of diversity.

Collaboration goes beyond multiple divisions co-listing a program. Rather, a collaborative program is actively developed by stakeholders with diverse points of view. The overarching goal is to highlight the unique role of APA as a unifying force in psychology.

  • One- or two-hour proposals only.
  • At least two participants in addition to the chairperson of the session.
  • Innovative formats encouraged.
  • Proposals from all career stages, settings and fields encouraged.
  • Programs integrating psychological sciences and practices encouraged.
  • Identify a minimum of two or up to seven divisions relevant to the proposal content.
Review Criteria

Broad appeal, importance of work, current and timely topic, originality and innovativeness, interactive/creative format, scientifically/empirically based and attention to diversity.
