SERD Symposium Presenters Win APA Award for Syrian Refugees Program at the 2016 APA Conference
Clinical Psychology students and faculty recently presented at the 2016 APA Conference in Denver. Students Lauren Weisberg, Chad Lazzari, and Sarajane Rodgers, and Dr. Gargi Roysicar, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director of the Multicultural Center, gave their respective presentations at the APA Conference. Their research, which began last November, resulted in a proposal that was accepted by APAGS (American Psychological Association of Graduate Students) and sponsored by several APA divisions.
It was recently announced that their program, “Syrian Refugee Crisis: Psychologists’ Responsibility for Human Rights and Mental Health,” is the winner of the 2016 Stuart C. Tentoni Outstanding Professional Development Program Award. The award was determined after the careful review of the impressive APAGS-accepted convention program proposals, review of the SERD symposium presentations by members of the APAGS Convention Committee, and review of the participant evaluations collected following the symposium.
SERD is a Support Group for Ethnic and Racial Diversity, an arm of the Multicultural Center for Research and Practice in the AUNE Clinical Psychology Department.
