Are we Political Animals? 

The Role of Psychology and Psychologists in Addressing Sociopolitical Issues

Miguel Gallardo, PsyD

Professor of Psychology, Pepperdine University

The political landscape in the United States, and around the world, have compelled us to think more intentionally about what role psychology and psychologists play in addressing sociopolitical and cultural issues, understanding the distress experienced by clients, all while managing our own reactions.   As our nation represents a multitude of cultures, political views, and connections to deeply held values, our ability to engage in thoughtful and meaningful discussions, and to serve those most in need, remains ever present.  This keynote will address how psychologists can think about the intersection of psychology and politics, and more importantly, how we can understand our roles in alleviating societal distress at individual and communal levels.

An Examination of Historical and Methodological Trends in Diversity Research

 

Bina Parekh, PhD

 

Associate Dean, American School of Professional Psychology, Argosy University

 

The primary purpose of the workshop is to provide exposure to various aspects of diversity-based research.  The presentation will examine some of the historical roots of how diversity research evolved in the United States.  The workshop will also examine methodological concerns and challenges in pursuing and conducting diversity based research that may be directly tied to social and political factors.  In addition, a contemporary discussion regarding current trends in the recruitment of diverse groups into research protocols will be examined.  Current research on empirically validated instruments that are more culturally and ethnically sensitive will also be presented.   Lastly, the workshop will highlight how problems in diversity research directly impact access to medical and psychological resources for individuals from diverse backgrounds, thus creating significant health disparities between minority and majority groups.
