March with SPSSI

The tragic events of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting in Parkland, FL remind us of the vital need to address the gun violence epidemic in America. On Saturday, March 24, we urge our members to come together in Washington, DC and around the globe to support the "March for Our Lives." Learn more here.





Congressional Seminar on Genocide

Last week SPSSI held a Congressional Seminar featuring Dr. Johanna Vollhardt of Clark University discussing "Understanding the Psychological Effects of Genocide, and the Psychology of Post-Conflict Reconciliation and Healing." It was well attended by Capitol Hill staff and science advocacy partners.

The event was shared live on Facebook and is now available on SPSSI's YouTube channel. Watch the video here.
