Psychologists and other experts will gather in San Antonio on Feb. 2 to share research findings on the adaptation and adjustment of immigrant and refugee populations to new cultures.
Summit participants will also present findings on immigrants' social impact and contributions, and share information on the roles psychologists can play to better serve such populations. Featured speakers include Mary Pipher, PhD, an adjunct psychology professor at the University of Nebraska who studies refugees' experiences in the United States.
Other sponsors of the event include APA Div. 45 (Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues), Div. 35 (Society for the Psychology of Women) and the Texas Psychological Association.
