  • HiTOP Call for Papers
    We're excited to announce that the 2024 HiTOP Conference will take place in-person March 16-17 at the Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, CA. The conference will include a number of different presentations and activities, including a plenary speaker, symposia, individual talks, workgroup updates, trainee flash talks and posters, a mentor-mentee lunch, and a trainee breakfast.
    We look for submissions that include symposia, individual (i.e., paper) talks, flash talks for the Trainee Showcase Symposium, or posters reporting on completed studies or works in progress. We also will solicit nominations for a potential plenary speaker. We encourage submissions on diverse HiTOP-relevant content areas using varied research methods. We are especially excited to highlight presentations that emphasize HiTOP across development; diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice (DEIJ) issues; and dissemination and/or implementation. We particularly welcome submissions from women, researchers from other underrepresented or epistemically excluded groups, and early-career scientists. Submissions must come from HiTOP members/trainees or be sponsored by a HiTOP member. Abstracts are due by November 15th, 2023 at 11:59PM PST and can be submitted from the HiTOP website (https://www.hitop-system.org/hitop2024), which also has more information on presentation types and submission formats.

    Notification of submissions chosen for presentation will be provided by mid December. Please note that all presentations and posters will require in-person attendance. 
  • Education & Training Interest Group

    This year, the Education & Training Interest Group invited anyone submitting a symposium to present at SPA to reach out to us if they would like help finding a discussant for their symposium. Specifically, we offered to help identify an expert in the field to talk about the important implications of the author’s symposium for the next generation of psychologists and the future of assessment. We received one request from a symposium focused on assessment gaps related to exploring the relationship between interpersonal traumas and social relating/death awareness in diverse populations of adults and children survivors. The themes of this symposium include “interpersonal traumas (including neglect and abuse) in unexplored areas of cultural diversity, death anxiety, paternal influence and projective assessment of aggression.”

    We are looking for an individual with knowledge and/or expertise in one or more of these areas that would like to serve as a discussant for the symposium (if the symposium is accepted). If you are interested, or can recommend someone, please send an email to the interest group co-chairs: Scott (scott_schwartz@med.unc.edu) and Adam (apn017@shsu.edu).
