Planning Workshop 2 at Clark University, Worcester, MA
April 17-19, 2008
The following topics emerged from the Luxembourg gathering in 2007, and we intend to build on them in our gathering in April at Clark University:
- An increasing differentiation and integration of academic and other psychologies.
- An increasing orientation toward a more applied, or at least a more user-based and user-oriented, psychology (reaching more critically and productively into areas such as ‘conflict resolution,’ 'mediation,' ‘consulting,’ ‘public debate’).
- Reflecting critically on the relationship between psychology and public opinion.
- Confronting more directly the challenges set forth by increasing trends toward globalization and simultaneous localization, and orienting toward practical solutions.
- A new teaching of psychology that is more stratified (e.g. less text-book oriented, more culturally, ethnically and racially sensitive, and broadening new training horizons to meet challenges of life in a global era).
We are planning to use the same presentation format as in the gathering in Schengen--maybe with a slight variation in the form of breaking into two groups on the second day of our gathering.
