we have much in common, I am extending to the
members of The American Academy of Experts
in Traumatic Stress a personal invitation
to be part of the Division of Peace Psychology
of the American Psychological Association. Hector
Betancourt, President of this Division, and many
of our members have followed the activities of
the Academy and have hoped for a closer tie.
The Division of
Peace Psychology exists to promote research, education
and professional activity with regard to issues
involving peace, nonviolent resolution of conflict,
peace building, and the prevention of violence.
Members often participate through one or more
of our working groups which include: Children,
Families and War; Ethnicity and Peace; Peace and
Sustainable Development; Public Policy and Actions;
Peace and Spirituality; International Alliances
and Ventures; Feminism and Peace Psychology; Militarism,
Disarmament, and Conversion; and Student Concerns.
Those who join Division 48 do not need to be members
of or join the American Psychological Association.
Peace and Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology,
a widely cited quarterly publication with a distinguished
international editorial board. Members will also
receive our newsletter. Most importantly, members
have the opportunity to work with others who combine
their work as psychologists with their hopes for
a just and peaceful world.
If you wish to
join, you may receive an application from our
membership office at:
Division of Peace
dues are $30.00 and $10.00 for students. If you
would like to contact our membership chair, call
Steven E. Handwerker, Ph.D., at (561) 447-6700
or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
