The 2008 International Congress of Psychology in Berlin will include a number of workshops, symposia and speakers on lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) topics in psychology, as a result of efforts by multinational psychological associations focused on LGB concerns.
The International Network on Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Concerns and Transgender Issues in Psychology (INET), of which APA is a founding member, helped organize sessions such as "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transsexual/Transgender Issues in Clinical Populations and Clinical Settings," "Homosexuality and Mental Health" and "Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Health" for the upcoming congress.
"This will be the first international congress with a significant representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender psychology programs in its line-up, and INET encourages even more proposals from psychologists," says Clinton Anderson, PhD, director of APA's Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Concerns Office.
The congress will run from July 20-25, 2008, and attendees can submit proposals for additional LGB symposia until Oct. 31.
"[The congress] will allow psychologists from around the world to meet with us and learn about our work," says Armand Cerbone, PhD, APA's co-representative to INET and director of behavioral health services at Howard Brown Health Center in Chicago.
