We had another success mid-winter board meeting this year in Washington DC. We worked diligently for a day and a half to identify ways to continue to serve and support the Division’s members and field of Group Psychology. All of the submitted committee reports are available for members to view on the APA’s MyCommunities site. After logging in, you will find a heading called “My Neighborhood.” Underneath that, you will see a link for “Division 49” which will take you to the Division’s page of materials. In addition, we have a list of the mid-winter board minutes available here.

We identified that the Division’s listserv is an underutilized resource for members. We discussed the benefit that could come from using this forum to create a community among us, where you could solicit and provide resources related to research, practice, consultation and teaching. The email address is: and is currently moderated by Dr. Lee Gillis and Dr. Joe Miles. You are encouraged to begin using the listserv today.

keep-calm-i-m-a-group-therapist-2I am looking forward to seeing or meeting you at this year’s convention in Toronto. Given the hit of our “Keep Calm, I’m a Group Therapist” buttons last year, our Division buttons will be returning! Please find a board member, or come to any event at the Division Suite to get your free button.
