The Summer Psychology Forum, now in its second year, is a two-day collaborative experience that crosses sub-disciplinary boundaries. The Summer Psychology Forum is based on the idea that we are strongest outside of our silos and partnered together to approach topics of our society and culture from multiple angles and areas of expertise.
Unlike the SPSP Annual Convention, the SPF is designed to be action-focused while propelling collaboration and networking. To this end, the Summer Psychology Forum should offer an intimate environment (up to 300 people). It is the goal for SPF attendees to return home with specific contacts from their cohort and actionable plans to initiate compelling research with colleagues they wouldn’t normally find easily at the Annual Convention. Attendees should leave their weekend with refreshed enthusiasm for the field, novel ideas and insights, and opportunities to pursue and continue contemporary research.
