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.
The Social & Personality section will be hosting a pre-conference on Thurs. June 20, 2024, in Ottawa at the Westin Ottawa (day before the main CPA convention begins). In addition to the invited speakers, we are also hosting a data blitz event (~4-minute presentations). Check out the pre-conference webpage for more information! The call for submissions for the data-blitz presentations is now open and ends on March 20, 2024.
The call for student applications for the 2024 Kenneth Dion and Brendan G. Rule awards is now open! The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2024. Check out our Social and Personality Section Awards tab for information.
