Recognizing Diversity

The Diversity Committee of the Society of Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy is hard at work evaluating applications for our first ever Student Diversity Award. The winner will be announced at the Division 49 Business Meeting at 2:00 PM on Friday, August 4th at the 2017 APA Convention in Washington, DC. Thank you to all who nominated students for this award!

The Diversity Committee will be meeting on Friday, August 4th at 12:00 PM in the Division 49 Hospitality Suite at the 2017 APA Convention. We will be sure to wrap up the meeting in time to head to the Division 49 Presidential Address at 1 PM. If you are interested in joining the Committee, please email Joe Miles at, or join us at our meeting in the Hospitality Suite on August 4th!

Finally, we would like to highlight two programs relevant to diversity and social justice in group work at this year’s convention.

  • 10:00 AM: Symposium: Group Therapy with Diverse College Women (1 hour)
  • 2:00 PM: Conversation Hour: A Dialogue about Dialogue: Implementation of Intergroup Dialogue on College Campuses (2 hours)

We hope to see you there!
