Social and Personality Section

Social and Personality Section

Chair: Dr. Cheryl Harasymchuk



The section exists to further research in Social and Personality Psychology and to foster relationships among Canadian researchers in these areas. The section organizes a one-day pre-conference to the annual meeting of the Canadian Psychological Association. The line-up of speakers is always stellar, and the pre-conference offers students and faculty a smaller venue for presentation and interaction prior to the larger meeting. The section also sends out monthly announcements. As well, our section aims to recognize student excellence.
