Respectful Dialogues and Beyond: What Are We Doing?

WELCOME! The Counseling Psychology Program at Western Michigan University is proud to host the 31st annual Great Lakes Regional Conference on April 13-14, 2018 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

We are excited to be ushering in the 4th decade of the longest running annual regional conference of the Society of Counseling Psychology. The theme of the 2018 conference is “Respectful Dialogues and Beyond: What Are We Doing?” that celebrates counseling psychology’s role in engaging in difficult conversations, often around challenging topics and in times of controversy and great need, with an emphasis on doing. Reflecting the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” we ask the question “What are WE doing?”

We welcome presentations that address innovative ways in which counseling psychologists and students in training are making a difference and seeking to have a positive impact in their communities, on our field, and with underserved populations. The conference theme also echoes an initiative of our current American Psychological Association Division 17 President, Dr. Arpana G. Inman, of Lehigh University, who will be a keynote speaker. We look forward to productive and respectful dialogues and a celebration of the good work we all are doing.

We invite undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff to attend the conference and submit a proposal. Proposals related to this year’s conference theme will be given special consideration, while we also welcome those addressing other contemporary professional and practice issues in counseling psychology.
