The Psychological Society of South Africa invites nominations for the Editorial Board of the South African Journal of Psychology (SAJP).

The three-year term for these honorary positions begins in July 2013. Prospective Editorial Board members will be seasoned researchers and academics with extensive records in academic publishing and peer-reviewed scholarly works. The positions involve providing an advisory role to the Editor and his team and conducting peer review assessments on at least three manuscripts each year. Please nominate only individuals who will be committed to providing this level of input to the SAJP. Nominations should be emailed to Ms Fatima Seedat at fatima@psyssa.com by 31 May 2013.

The overall aim is to use existing IUPsyS experience and its access to international scientific and APPLIED expertise on resilience in the face of stressful and traumatic events to help researchers, educators and practitioners in the Asia-Pacific region to increase their understanding of and ability to respond to the mental health consequences of disasters so prevalent in the region. A renowned international faculty of scientists will work with participants on most recent scientific and applied scientific evidence and knowledge, and show the constraints and opportunities of dealing with particular target groups such as children and adolescents. The workshop program will further address knowledge provision, education and training in academic programs of psychology, and help develop a regional network to support continuance in scientific research and training in mental health support following disaster. Click here for the full Announcement and Call for Application.
