XIIth European Congress on Work and Organizational Psychology

Handan Kepir Sinangil
Organizing Committee Chair

The XIIth European Congress on Work and Organizational Psychology will take place in Istanbul, Turkey at Grand Cevahir Convention Center, between 1215 May, 2005. The congress is jointly hosted by Turkish Psychological Association (TPA) and European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP). The congress theme is Convivence in Organizations and Society: Living Together in Organizations and Society. From the beginning of the discipline, work and organizational psychologists dealt with organizational convivence in terms of living together in the work environment where individuals spend most of their life time and invest energies, thoughts, emotions, and hopes. At the same time organizational convivence should be considered as the ground to start building projects, realizing goods and services, managing the present, and preparing for the future. Considering the dynamics of change and globalization, the theme covers all the topics of industrial, work, and organizational psychology including the emerging topics for submission.

We are expecting considerable submission of symposia, individual presentations, thematic sessions and posters, interactive sessions, and precongress workshops that will make this European Congress an excellent opportunity to interact, exchange, and debate new directions in work and organizational psychology.

The congress is intended for psychologists, academics, PhD students, trainers, educators and other professionals working in the field of work and organizational psychology. The official language of the congress is English. Simultaneous translation will NOT be provided. All the abstracts must be in English. Submissions for symposia, individual oral presentations, posters, interactive sessions and round tables in the topics of the congress are invited. Also joint EAWOP and SIOP symposia are encouraged to be submitted for information exchange of researchers across the continents.

Abstracts (max. 1800 characters) must reach the congress secretariat by September 30, 2004 and must be delivered online. Full details about the congress can be found at www.eawop2005.org. For further information on submission and the organization, please contact sinangil@boun.edu.tr.

American Board of Organizational and Business Consulting 
Psychology Becomes 13th ABPP-Affiliated Specialty Board

Good news! It is again possible for members of SIOP to gain diplomate status in their specialty. Further, there is a senior option for those who are 15 years beyond the doctorate. 

The American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) was incorporated in 1947 with the support of the American Psychological Association. The ABPP is a unitary governing body of separately incorporated specialty examining boards, which assures the establishment, implementation, and maintenance of specialty standards and examinations by its member boards. Through its central office, a wide range of administrative support services are provided to ABPP boards, diplomats, and the public.

The ABPP serves the public need by certifying psychologists competent to deliver high-quality services in various specialty areas of psychology. Board certification (awarding of a diploma in a specialty) assures the public that specialists designated by the ABPP have successfully completed the education, training, and experience requirements of the specialty, including an examination designed to assess the competencies required to provide quality services in that specialty.

Over the years the ABPP has grown to grant diplomate status in 12 specialty areas. One area, industrial and organizational psychology, was dropped from recognition due to lack of interest and participation in 1999. Since early 1999 an ad hoc board has been working closely with ABPP to re-establish this specialty as the thirteenth specialty, the American Board of Organizational and Business Consulting Psychology.

The specialty of Organizational and Business Consulting Psychology is defined as the practice of psychology applied to organizational entities, especially business settings. The practice modality of the specialty is primarily one of consultation and development support for organizations in order to improve their effectiveness based upon the discipline and profession of psychology. Typical areas of practice include organizational training and development, organizational effectiveness, assessment, selection, placement, and performance measurement in organizations, consumer analysis, human performance in complex person-machine systems, and other emerging areas of practice in the specialty.

For more information please visit www.ABPP.org or contact American Board of Professional Psychology, 300 Drayton Street, Third Floor, Savannah, GA 31401, 1-800-255-7792, Fax: 912-644-5655, E-mail: office@abpp.org.
