The Massachusetts Psychological Association had a very successful conference in November co-chaired by Lorraine Mangione, PhD and Wendy Vincent, PsyD (Antioch 2010). It had a decidedly Antiochian flavor to it with time for self-reflection and looking at possibly contentious and difficult topics, as well as being rooted in a sense of social justice and concern for humanity.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Samuel Sommers, a social psychologist from Tufts University, set the stage well with his talk and interactive demonstration on The Science of Stereotyping and Implicit Bias. Lorraine Mangione wrapped up the day with a discussion session entitled Where Do We Go From Here? Reflecting and Moving Ahead.
