Division 51 will be having our annual men's retreat and Division Board meeting as a part of the APA Conference on Immigration in San Antonio this year.
The Board meeting is Friday evening, Feb 3.
The Annual Midwinter Retreat for Men of Division 51 will be on Sat, Feb 4. at the St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. This is a long-standing and very rewarding experience for Div. 51 members. The experience traditionally begins with a continental breakfast at 8 AM and continues to 5 PM with a lunch break. The focus is on sharing the challenges and rewards of being the unique men that we are through a facilitated group experience.
Through his "focus on family" platform, APA President-Elect Dr. Gerry Koocher plans to spotlight three areas that span all of psychology's constituencies, one of which is: Diversity in Psychology: "Our society is becoming diverse in ways that couldn't have been imagined 20 years ago," says Koocher, noting that not only are minority populations growing, but so are transracial marriages and international adoptions. "Psychology has the potential to help to move America in greater acceptance of multiculturalism."
