         A highlight of the 66th ICP 2008 convention in St. Petersburg Russia was a special tour of
Pavlov’s laboratory on the grounds of his family residence. We enjoyed a private showing of where
Pavlov worked, slept, and conducted experiments in stimulus-responses in animals. Pavlov’s neice was
gracious to allow us to experience the early scientific laboratory, which is not the exhibit open for
general public tours.
         When psychology celebrated it’s official 100th birthday, 1979, 30 years ago, Frances
Culbertson was serving as President with Peter Merenda as President Elect. ICP met in Leipzig where
the first psychological laboratory was established by Wilhelm Wundt.
         Many academic curricula include time working with lab-rats and many important treatment
protocols have resulted from laboratory researches. For example, based on studies undertaken by Nate
Azrin of Florida Atlantic University, new treatments were developed for self mutilating children as
well as leading into discoveries about brain function information useful in understanding human stress
reactions.
         This year, we gather in Mexico City to celebrate the global advances in establishing
psychology as a mature discipline with ever-broadening applications and with widely shared
systematic methods for evidence collection, as well as for differentiating treatment outcomes in diverse
client populations. Evidence based psychology is gaining a voice in the community of psychological
associations and we are gradually learning how to incorporate the findings, the insights, the wisdoms
from the full range of cultures and multi-cultures.
         Times of economic stress, of ongoing and new inter-national hostilities, and of media spread
tales of local tragedies and trauma call for psychologists to stand tall and to teach and practice the
lessons learned from our historical and contemporary experts in human behavior and interpersonal
dynamics. Knee jerk panic reactions to world events and groupthink mentalities too often handicap
clients, patients and mental health specialist. The 67th ICP convention will be a time of reflection on
knowledge foundations we share, considering how to become more effective in melding information
into educational programs, and, yes, how ICP can enhance its own structures and operations to make a
meaningful contribution in the years ahead.
         All interested in making a suggestion for the updating of ICP procedures, [see March and May
2009 IP issues] or in volunteering to work with a committee or can take on a task in 2009-2010, please
send a statement of your interest to annoroark@bellsouth.net


                                                                                                                                   6

        Not all suggestions or interests can be accommodated, or can fit into the nature of the
organization, but knowing of your willingness to give time and talent to ICP is important. There is
plenty to be done by those who take opportunity to learn about ICP and our unique face-to-face, value
oriented association.

                               ICP SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM
                                      July 4-7, 2009
                                    Mexico City, Mexico
         St. Augustine, Florida. June 9, 2009. A final convention program book is almost ready to
go to press. The enthusiasm and anticipation that precedes each ICP gathering is high. Those able to
make the journey will gain a wealth of insight and knowledge. An especially strong set of invited
addresses include: Why We Need Scientific Psychology at the International Level, Ruben Ardila,
Columbia; Organized Psychology in Latin America: Reflections of the Past, Present and Future,
Marcello, Urra, Chile; International Perspectives on Women’s Mental Health, Joy K. Rice, USA;
Longitudinal Neurocognitive Assessments Following Exposure to Chernobyl Radiation, Gerald L.
Gamache, USA; Mexican Ethnopsychology: Idiosyncratic Data for a Better Understanding of
Universals, Rolando Diaz-Loving, Mexico; Progress Toward Internationalizing the USA Psychology
Curriculum, Michael J. Stevens, USA.
         Four quite varied workshops will be available for a $10 per hour fee: Technological Advances
in International Communications: Educational and Professional, Mercedes McCormick and Richard
Velayo [on line, on screen], USA; Psychological Effects Of The Crisis. Intra And Cross Cultural
NonVerbal Communication: Reality In Analytic Group Psychotherapy, Jorge Cappon Gotlib, Mexico;
Adaptation Of EMDR & Brief Therapy. Client Focuses To Change Negative Perceptions Of Trauma,
M. Consuelo Barreda-Hanson, Australia; and, Bio-Psychosocial Model with Eating Disorders,
Artemis Pipinelli, USA.
         For the first time, ICP will be awarding ICP World Continuing Education Credits to those
attending the workshops. Those who wish may request to receive APA Continuing Education credits.
Mercedes McCormick who is chairing the CE Committee this year introduced the ICP WCE concept
last fall to accommodate persons who do not need the USA/APA credits but would be interested in
establishing a track record of continuing education in international and global learning.
         The amazing array of papers and symposia come from Africa, from Ireland, from England,
from Mexico, and many part of the USA. Participants can hear about assessment techniques, about
treatments for depressions, about care for incarcerated women, and about neuro cognitive treatments.
The outline of the program is presented for preview. As always, there may need to be room changes
on-site, so check with the registrar to confirm session placements or changes.
         Special appreciations go to the Convention Registrar, Nancy Quatrano, and to the On-site
Registrar-Facilitator Dr. Beverly Stevens. None of this could have come about without the constant
efforts of Local Arrangements Coordinator Dr. Elisa Margaona. She has prepared a grand “fiesta”
gathering for ICP.
         Looking forward to seeing you on July 4th!

                                 Sociology meets Psychology

                   The Asia Pacific Sociological Conference, Bali, Indonesia
          Improving the Quality of Social Life in Asia Pacific: A Challenge for Sociology
                   Sonia Dhaliwal, M.A. Pacific University, Forest Grove, OR

                 The Asia Pacific Sociological Conference 2009 was held in Bali, Indonesia, drawing
                 professionals from all over the world. Professional’s specific to the fields of Sociology
                 and Psychology attended and presented research on a variety of issues pertinent to
                 improving the quality of Social Life in Asia Pacific.
                        As a burgeoning psychologist it was refreshing to witness the fields of
Sociology and Psychology come together to discuss issues that affect each of us on a global level as
well as on a personal level in terms of how we react to and/or respond to the consequences of our
human actions.
       This conference was focused around social and political issues affecting individuals residing in
the South East Asian regions of the world. Social inclusion and exclusion were discussed, including
issues of class, socio economic status and the invisible caste system that inevitably binds us and causes
a great deal of internal suffering. I had the great privilege of presenting research which examines self-
construals in both Thai and American college student populations. The idea of a self-construal
identifies the way in which one views himself in relation to the individuals around him/her. This topic
was relevant given the context of the conference as the general idea was to look at how we view our
actions and ourselves in relation to others and how this may impact our actions and/or the actions of
others. The topic generated a great deal of discussion in a room that was almost filled with
Sociologists. Questions and comments were well received and the overall consensus was that
psychologists and sociologists may have more opportunities to work together in collaboration in order
to identify the root causes of much of the current human suffering in the world. It is this hope of
collaboration between the two fields that should encourage professionals to embark on research and
examine the unknown in hopes of providing a more thorough understanding of the causes and
maintenance of human struggles and strife on global, as well as a personal, level.
       Overall, the conference tackled issues that were both pertinent and sore for a lot of the
attendees as these are social issues that they have to contend with on a daily basis. I think that if we



                                                                                                       24
        Vol. 49, No. 5         International Council of Psychologists       June 2009



remain open to the possibility, sociology provides a context and understanding that can further help us
as psychologists understand the motivations behind human behavior. My hope is to see more of a
relationship between the fields of Sociology and Psychology in contributing to the greater good of
humankind through a multifaceted lens. I would like to end with a quote by Pat Riley who said that
“great teamwork is the only way we can create the breakthroughs that define our careers.”

                 Featured Poster Presentation in Mexico City




              Abstract

              Depression seems to be under-diagnosed in primary care all
              over the world, particularly in ethnic minority populations. This
              may be explained by the unsatisfactory ‘Western’ definitions of
              depression, that cannot easily fit in among the cultures, with
              different interactions between patient and doctor, linguistic
              barriers, different somatic presentations and use of cultural
              idioms of distress.

              A finer definition of depression is probably needed, taking into
              account the specific peculiarities of the cultures in order to
              identify such disorder among people from different countries.
              The present work aims hence at reviewing some diagnostic
              issues about, with particular regard to the difficulty to define a
              compelling definition of this disease.

                 Reports from ICP Liaisons to Other International Organizations

Richard S. Velayo, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: APA Division 52 (Division of International Psychology)

Current & Future Activities: In my capacity as webmaster for APA Division 52 (International
Psychology), I include announcements and events related to the 2009 ICP Convention (Mexico City)
via the Division 52 listserv announcements. I continue to promote the ICP website (ICPweb.org)
which contains announcements and resources that may be of interest to both ICP and Division 52
members. Note that given certain difficulties associated with this website and the inaccessibility of this
site during the past few months, I had to create a temporary website for ICP –
http://rvelayo.com/icpweb. Those who subscribe to the old address are automatically directed to the
temporary website.

I plan to continue promoting activities between members of both organizations and to encourage
membership in both. Two online surveys have been created for ICP as follows:
(1) Membership Survey -
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=LqzMFcq9djKTD_2fBT_2fikDwg_3d_3d
(2) Member Background Information Survey -
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=0tUM_2btvX6bcKT61mFthFug_3d_3d

In November 2009, the second “Psychology Day” event was held at the United Nations Headquarters
in New York City. Both ICP and Division 52 were represented among other international psychology
organizations. ICP information brochure and application forms were distributed.

Joy Rice, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: World Federation for Mental Health

Current & Future Activities: I continue to represent the International Council of Psychologists for
WFMH, receive their various bulletins and publications and pass these along to ICP board members
when appropriate and keep WFMH informed about new organizational or programmatic developments
for ICP and vice-versa. I also renewed our 2009 organizational membership in the World Federation
of Mental Health.

News from the Liaison Organization: The 2009 World Congress of the World Federation for Mental
Health will be held September 2-6, 2009 in Athens, Greece with the cooperation of the Society of
Preventive Psychiatry and the Hellenic Psychiatric Association. The theme of the conference is
"Working Together for Mental Health" and the venue is the Hilton Hotel in Athens. To register, go to
www.wmhc2009.com.

In 2009, the WFMH sponsored a number of important initiatives including:

      The WFMH Africa Initiative Addressing the Mental Health Consequences of HIV/AIDS. With
       a Ford Foundation grant, the organization was able to convene a group of 23 leaders in Cape
       Town, South Africa for an international experts’ forum that will chart the course for
       implementing the Initiative.
      World Mental Health Day was held in 2008 with the theme of “Making Mental Health a Global
       Priority”: Scaling UP Services through Citizen Advocacy and Action and over 7,500 campaign
       packets translated into 7 languages were distributed worldwide.
      WFMH brought online through its website, the first Global Online Directory of Mental Health
       Consumer/Service User, Family Member and Advocacy Support Groups and Organizations. It
       will provide people around the world with good referral and resource information.
      WFMH is merging with the World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders. An
       outcome will be the establishment of a new WFMH program office, - the WFMH Center for
       Family and Consumer Advocacy and Support.
      In the depressed global economy, WFMH faces serious financial challenges in realizing these
       new initiatives and endeavors.

Florence L. Denmark, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: International Organization for the Study of Group Tensions

Current & Future Activities: We have given out information and membership forms to encourage
joining ICP and attending the convention.

News from the Liaison Organization: The International Organization for the Study of Group
Tensions (IOSGT) held various meetings during the past year culminating with our most significant
event held during the Psychology Conference at Pace University. IOSGT’s Co-Presidents, Herbert
Krauss and Florence Denmark, presented the Benjamin B. Wolman Award to Dr. Harold Takooshian.
Harold, a life member of ICP, organized an International panel at the Conference. The Wolman Award
was named in honor of the founder of IOSGT, Benjamin Wolman, who stressed the importance of
contributions, however small they might be, to resolving conflicts.

Michael Stevens, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: IUPsyS, International Union of Psychological Sciences

Current & Future Activities: I was appointed to serve as ICP liaison to the IUPsyS in late May of
2009. I have served as co-editor of the IUPsyS publication, Psychology: IUPsys Global Resource for
five years and in that capacity have worked closely with the officers of the organization. I will
undertake to promote the ICP within the IUPsyS forthwith.

News from the Liaison Organization: Abstracts of the XXIX International Congress of Psychology
in Berlin Germany have been reproduced by Psychology Press in the 10th edition of the Global
Reso8urce CD-ROM (www.psypress.com/books/search_new.asp). A recap of the 2008 congress can
be found on the IUPsyS web site (www.am.org/iupsys/arts/index.html). Plans are underway to convert
the CD-ROM into a web-based resource. An editor(s) has yet to be appointed to replace Danny
Wedding and Michael Sevens, who served from 2005-2009. Likewise, the search for a new editor of
the IUPsyS journal, International Journal of Psychology, was not completed as of June 1, 2009.

The XXX International Congress of Psychology will convene in Cape Town, South Africa from July
22-27, 2012 (www.icp2012.com/site/home). The congress theme is “Psychology Serving Humanity.”
No bids have been received to host the 2016 international congress.

The 2009 Southeastern Europe Regional Conference of Psychology, co-sponsored by the IUPsyS, will
meet in Sofia, Bulgaria from October 30 – November 1 (rcp2009.wordpress.com/). The conference
theme is “South Eastern Europe Looking Ahead: Paradigms, Schools, Needs and Achievements of
Psychology in the Region.” The 2011 regional conference is planned for an English-speaking country
in the Caribbean.

The General Assembly of the IUPsyS elected a new slate of officers and Executive Committee
members in 2008 at the International Congress of Psychology in Berlin:
    Rainer Silbereisen – President
    Kan Zhang – Vice-President
    Michel Sabourin – Treasurer
The appointments of Secretary General Pierre Ritchie and Deputy Secretary General Merry Bullock
were extended two years in order to facilitate the IUPsyS’s decision to reorganize. The IUPsys
conducted an international search to fill the newly created managerial position of Executive Officer,
which will necessitate the reconfiguration and duties of officers. As of June 1, 2009, an Executive
Officer had not been named. The 2008 General Assembly Namibia admitted Namibia as the newest

national member and ARUPS as the newest organizational affiliate of the IUPsyS. Finally, the
Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists was approved by the 2008 General
Assembly (www.am.org/iupsys/resources/ethics/univdecl2008.html).

The Advanced Research Training Seminars (ARTS), co-sponsored by the IUPsyS in collaboration with
the IAAP and IACCP, was a success (www.am.org/iupsys/arts/index.html). Three seminars were
conducted in conjunction with the International Congress of Psychology in Berlin on structural
equation modeling, use of large databases, and qualitative and mixed methods research in cross-
cultural research. The IUPsyS’s ARTS coordinator and capacity building committees of sponsoring
organizations are engaged in fundraising to ensure the viability sustain ARTS and in evaluating its
immediate and long-range (multiplier) effect.

Strategic planning efforts launched in 2004 reached fruition with the approval of the IUPsyS’s
Strategic Plan y the General Assembly at the 2008 International Congress of Psychology (see
www.am.org/iupsys/newsletter/09-Ritchie.htm for a description of the plan and its development). The
plan articulates five strategic priorities and activities: capacity building, international representation,
service to national members, service to the discipline (development of psychology’s common core),
and communication and dissemination. Standing Committee on Strategic Planning has been charged
over the next quadrennium with oversight of three major tasks: (1) operationalization of the current
strategic plan, (2) development of strategies for implementing tasks and (3) preparing a revised
strategic plan for the next quadrennium.

Elizabeth Bishop, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: International Society of Clinical Psychology

News from the Liaison Organization: I have tried to keep in touch with ISCP by occasional emails.
This is rather difficult since the organization has had no regular meetings, has no known officers, and
no longer maintains a list serv or a web site. I will research whether the organization is no longer
active and if there is any point to ICP maintaining a liaison.

Anna Laura Comunian, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: Federation of National Psychologists Associations in Europe

Current and Future Activities: EFPA is the leading Federation of National Psychologists
Associations in Europe. It provides a forum for European co-operation in a wide range of fields of
academic training, psychology practice and research. There are 32 member associations of EFPA
representing 200,000 individual members. The psychologists in the member associations include
practitioners as well as academic and research psychologists. The Federation has as one of its goals the
integration of practice with research and the promotion of an integrated discipline of psychology. The
member organisations of EFPA are concerned with promoting and improving psychology as a
profession and as a discipline, particularly, though not exclusively, in applied settings and with
emphasis on the training and research associated with such practice.

         Vol. 49, No. 5         International Council of Psychologists       June 2009



The 11th European Congress of Psychology (Oslo, Norway 7 – 10 July 2009) theme is “A Rapidly
Changing World – Challenges for Psychology”. The themes are: Peace, Human Rights and
Psychology; Contemporary Changes and Diversities in Everyday Lives; Teaching Psychology and
Organizational Psychology. The congress venue will be located in the city center of Oslo, at the
Oslo Congress Center, Radisson SAS Plaza Hotel and Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania. There is only a
five minutes walk between these three places. The opening ceremony will be held at the brand new
Norwegian Opera building, by the seafront, close to the city center. Workshops will also be held at the
Norwegian Nobel Institute and the Nobel Peace Center

News from the Liaison Organization: The field of psychology is rapidly expanding across European
countries, and requires comprehensive training and evaluation of skills and competence. Fields of
application include mental health, occupational fields, human factors, decision-making and accident
prevention, crisis and disaster intervention, work with refugees and displaced citizens, work in schools
to reduce educational and social exclusion. With the impact of major societal, technological and
economic changes in Europe, and changes in employment, patterns of work, and the workplace, there
are increasing needs for psychologists to work both at an individual client level and at an
organisational level. There is further a need to develop the transparency of qualifications and to
develop new approaches to the specification of knowledge, skills and competencies required by
psychologists.

A common qualification which enables psychologists to practise as such and a specification of the
knowledge, skills and competence required by psychologists will promote free movement of
professional psychologists in Europe, and guarantee a high standard of qualification and practice, as
well as protecting a frequently vulnerable public. This European Diploma would be granted to all
psychologists who have training in psychology that fulfils the criteria that are designed to be the
European standard in psychology. The criteria are an undergraduate degree, a Master’s degree or
equivalent level university training in psychology and at least one year of supervised practice, adding
up to six years. For more details, see the websites www.europsych.org or www.efpa.be.

Joan Chrisler, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: Division 35, Society for the Psychology of Women

Current & Future Activities: The only thing that I have done this year is to announce the Division 35
Executive Committee list serve and the Psychology of Women Resource List serve (powr-l; a joint
project of Division 35 and the Association for Women in Psychology) that Nancy Felipe Russo was
chosen as ICP's Denmark-Grunwald Award winner for 2009. In that announcement I mentioned the
Mexico City convention and noted that Dr. Russo would give an invited address there. As I have done
so little in recent years, and as I may be leaving the Division 35 Executive Committee in August, I
suggest that I be replaced with someone less overcommitted, who might be able to do more.

News from the Liaison Organization: Division 35 will again have a large and varied program of
activities at the APA convention this year. The division's Global Women’s Committee will have a
joint meeting with Division 52’s International Committee on Women, which will be held in the
Division 52 Hospitality Suite in the Intercontinental Hotel on Thursday, August 6th, 3:00-4:30 p.m.


                                                                                                      32
        Vol. 49, No. 5         International Council of Psychologists       June 2009



Anyone who is interested in attending is welcome. Division 35's main activity this year was its co-
sponsorship of the Multicultural Conference and Summit, which was held in New Orleans in January.
Ellen Cole is the incoming president.

Sarlito Wirawan Sarwono, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: Asian Psychological Association (APsyA)

News from the Liaison Organization: At the 2nd Convention of Asian Psychological Association in
June 2008, Sarlito Sarwono been appointed as the President of APsyA 2008-2010. Jas Laile
(University of Malaysia) is the Past President, and Kate Moore
(University of Darwim) is the president elect. The next convention will be held at Darwin, on 4-8 July
2010. Non-Asians who are interested in Asian psychology are most welcome.

 Henry L. Janzen, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: Canadian Psychological Association

Current & Future Activities: This year, as many other years, I worked hard to promote ICP and
encourage membership. Our efforts at conferences and through internet have kept ICP visible, yet
without the added membership, or the added interest in attending our conferences. As we “youthify”
our membership, I feel the strength and numbers will grow. This will be my last report as Canada
Chair, given my retirement. I have, however, found a person who wants to serve ICP - Dr. Martin
Mrazik. Canada will be well represented.

News from the Liaison Organization: As liaison to the Canadian Psychological Association I can
report that CPA is growing and representing the interests of researchers, teachers and practitioners.
Their recent efforts to strengthen Canadian psychology programs through revised accreditation
guidelines will interest graduate students from around the world. CPA continues to be a strong
supporter of international organization, including ICP. Once again, with my retirement, perhaps Dr.
Mrazik could take on this role, or Dr. Troy Janzen. Troy can be reached at tjanzen@ualberta.ca. I will
continue to be a member of ICP despite my retirement.


Sandra Neil Ph. D.
ICP Liaison to the Australian Psychological Society

Current and Future Activities: I put out a call from the International Council of Psychologists to all
the members of ICP who have been involved in the International Relations and Human Rights Interests
Group to be involved with the ICP at the 27th International Council of Applied Psychology (ICA)
Convention in Melbourne from 11-16 July 2010. The convention will be hosted by the Australian
Psychological Society (APS). The Scientific Committee for the Melbourne convention invited
submissions for symposia to be presented at the Congress. This premier International Forum for
Applied Psychology will be hosted in Melbourne next year. The deadline for the symposia submissions
is 30 June 2009 and thus far, we have had replies from various distinguished psychologists including
Professor Noach Milgram and Drs. Anna Laura Comunian, Natividad Dayan, Sarlito Sarwono, Beth


                                                                                                    33

Hedva, Florence Denmark, Ann Marie O'Roark, Merima Isakovic-Cocker, Ludwig Lowenstein, Gail
Berkove, Sherri McCarthy and myself, Sandra O'Neil.

News from the Liaison Organization: The 27th International Congress of Applied Psychology will
be hosted by APS and held in the newly established Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, and
it was a bid that was hotly contested, and APS won the day. The Congress is a scientific program of
global significance and regional relevance. The scientific program will consist of state of the art key
note addresses invited addresses, invited symposia, and individual papers. ICP is fully intending to
present one of our Human Rights World Summits and forums which have been presented in almost
every country since 1982 beginning with the Philippines in Manila: in Winchester in England; in San
Diego in the USA; in Melbourne, Australia; in Taiwan, the Republic of China; in Jinan, China; in Tel
Aviv, Israel; in California, the USA; in Padua, Italy; in Lisbon, Portugal, and many other areas of the
world.

The Australian Psychological Society has been vitally involved with a review of internet based
psychological products. The review aims to provide members with a range of psychological and
health related sites and services available by the internet. The APS National Conference in Darwin
2009, will be in the Northern Territory, Australia. Topics include peace, human rights, refugee rights,
and various conferences on alcohol, drugs, interpersonal psychotherapy, motivational interviewing,
connectedness, and an introduction to neuroimaging.

Other concerns in Australia have been related to with many international issues. At the moment there
is some cause for extreme feelings of racism from the Indian community. There have been new bids
for Aboriginal rights in Australia. There has been excellent ongoing work at the Royal Children’s
Hospital in Melbourne on immigrants, refugees, and children’s health.


Ann M. O’Roark, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to International Association of Applied Psychology

Current and Future Activities: The 2009 ICP-IAAP Alliance Agreement states the purpose of the
continuation of the alliance formed between ICP and IAAP in 2005 to be to strengthen the voice of
individual psychologists through inter-association information exchange, liaison representation at
Board meetings, and coordination of conferences and congresses offering program time and member
registration rates, and member rates on journal subscriptions. All outsourcing services for dues
collections through the Wiley [Blackwell] Publishing firm end with the 2009 dues management. A
letter of appreciation was sent from President Consuelo Barreda-Hanson to the Wiley staff stating
ICP’s appreciation for their assistance during a time of transitions in ICP. The 2009 Alliance
Agreement, which has been reviewed and approved by presidents of both Associations, is presented
below. Suggestions and comments are welcome. A correspondent is needed to send ICP information
for publication in the IAAP newsletter and to assure that IAAP information is included in issues of the
International Psychologist (IP). Please let me know if you are interested in this appointment




                                                                                                     34
        Vol. 49, No. 5         International Council of Psychologists       June 2009



IAAP AND ICP support an Alliance Agreement (originally the “Tandem Agreement”) to explore ways
to increase administrative efficiencies and to schedule activities in tandem while both organizations
continue to function, as they have historically, as independent, autonomous associations. The
following agreements form the basis for the alliance and are guides for association decision making
and planning:
Inter-Association Information Exchange and Liaison Representatives
    1. A Liaison from ICP will sit with the IAAP Board and a Liaison from IAAP will sit with the
        ICP Board.
    2. Regular exchange of association information will be included in each association’s newsletter.
        Reports to be submitted by a newsletter representative assigned by each association are to
        include summaries of association activities, conference materials such as the call for papers,
        registration and hotel information, eligibility for awards, and when available, background
        information about board members and association history, policy, values. The Alliance
        Agreement will be spread upon the website and Board Liaison Names listed with those of
        appointed leaders.
    3. Primary communications exchanges will take place between the association Presidents, or the
        Liaisons appointed as agent of the Presidents. Information reports are exchanged between
        newsletter editors. Queries and Interim Issues regarding potential Administrative efficiencies
        will be channelled through the IAAP and ICP Secretary Generals, with copies to each
        association President and the Board Liaison(s), and other parties involved ad hoc.
    4. At least every four years, prior to the ICAP congress, Alliance Agreements are to be reviewed
        for updating and agreement re-affirmation. Interim adjustments may be presented by the
        executives of either association as needed. After a six month interval following announcement
        of an adjustment by either association and without objections of concerns being raised, the
        recommended adjustments are in effect.

Conference and Congress Scheduling:
   1. In as far as feasible, the ICP conference held the same year as the IAAP congress will be
       conducted in the general vicinity of the IAAP congress (ICAP) held every four years and
       scheduled eight to twelve years in advance. ICP conferences will be scheduled soon before or
       after the ICAP, and as occasion arises, may be accepted by IAAP as in embedded conference
       within the congress program.
   2. ICP’s President will notify the IAAP President of sites selected for their annual conferences as
       soon as Board decisions are completed. IAAP’s President will advise the ICP President of
       congress plans with annual updates.
   3. Member registration rates will be accorded for congress attendees to members of ICP and
       IAAP.




                                                                                                    35

Judith Gibbons, Ph.D.
ICP Liaison to: SIP (Sociedad Interamericana de Psicología), Interamerican Society of
Psychology

Current and Future Activities: All I did this year was to circulate information about the upcoming
ICP congress on the list serves of SIP.

News from the Liaison Organization: The 32nd Congress of SIP is coming up shortly. It will be held
from June 28th until July 2, 2009 in Guatemala. The website is at: www.sip2009.org/

The 2011 Congress will be held in Medellin, Colombia, dates to be announced.

Tara Pir, Ph.D.,
ICP Liaison to: Iranian American Psychological Association

Current and Future Activities: The board of directors and members of IAPA welcome and
appreciate our collaborative relationship with ICP and sharing the mutual mission and goal of
promoting mental health on global level. The Iranian American Psychological Association was
established in 2005 and has membership both locally in Los Angeles and nationwide in the USA.
IAPA provides an annual conference and quarterly community education seminars and publishes a
newsletter and announcements.

ICP and the upcoming international conference in Mexico City has been promoted in all of IAPA’s
events and publications. Also, the promotional information about ICP has been published through the
IAPA list serve and many ethnic media outlets in different languages. In addition, ICP’s global
activities and upcoming international conferences, was promoted in e-News of Los Angeles County
Department of Mental Health, which has the networking scope in the State of California.

Also, I presented at the United Nation UNESCO conference on the anniversary of “Human Rights for
All: The Universal Declaration at 60,” in Paris, France in September of 2008. I represented our
institute and IAPA. In addition, I was able to promote ICP’s activities.

News from Liaison Organization:

IAPA is planning on providing a series of international / film analyses seminars, both for professionals
and the public, each in appropriate method of delivery. The rational for this choice is the fact that
production of feature films has been influencing both the public’s mind and behavior, and being
influenced by the public’s thinking and actions. The focus of these educational seminars will be to
identify and analyze the contributing factors to mental health issues, such as: the impact of stigma,
culture and diversity, social policies and others.

PADUA
Padua was the second biggest university city in Europe (during
the 17th century Galileo Galileo researched at the Padova
University). Its medical faculty was one of the most ambitious in
Europe. The heritage of that era can still be found all over the city,
with works by masters like Giotto, Mantegna and Donatello (who
originally came from Florence ) as treasure pieces
