The 2022 SPSSI Policy Workshop Preconference
[Working Title] Learning from Puerto Rico: Policy Lessons for Advocacy-Minded Psychologists
Thursday, June 23, 2022
Royal Sonesta San Juan
Registration fees: $25 for Students | $40 for Non-students
The registration fee includes breakfast and lunch.
Description. This full-day event is being planned by SPSSI's Policy Committee in partnership with SPSSI's conference planning team. Sessions will highlight what attendees can learn from psychologists who have used research and advocacy to shape public policy in Puerto Rico on a variety of issues (e.g., reducing child poverty, reducing gender-based violence, ending conversion therapy, promoting fair elections). We also hope to bring in the perspectives of local policy stakeholders (e.g., lawmakers, community partners) and provide opportunities for attendees to connect, share their own experiences, and build a network of policy-minded colleagues. This event will be of interest to people at any career stage.
More information will be posted to this page as the agenda is confirmed.
