GUIDELINES

Convocatoria: 70 años de la SIP – Libro de imágenes

PHOTOS BOOK PROJECT

Title: Photo collection: Psychology in the Americas
Editors: Miguel Gallegos, Viviane de Castro Pecanha, Rubén Ardila & Naomi Koerner
Publishing Company: Interamerican Society of Psychology

Rationale:
According to the ancient Chinese adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Images, such as portraits or photos, offer us different ways of representing events or special moments. Over time, these images tend to get forgotten, lost in a bookcase or memory box. Often when the photos are found the events and people portrayed are unknown.
The idea of the photo collection book is to identify the different historical moments of psychology in the Americas through the exhibition of various visual representations (photographs, portraits, images, photos, etc.), along with brief contextualization of the events portrayed and the historical meaning given to them.

The photo collection book project is motivated by the celebration of the 70 years of the Interamerican Society of Psychology (ISP; 1951-2021). This book will give information on images of events and people playing significant role in the history of ISP; although, it will also portray moments and events not directly related to ISP or the Interamerican / Iberian-America region. Graphic representations of events, conferences, awards, letters, institutions, social meetings, emblematic book covers, and many other images will also be included in the photo book. The photographs can be from personal archives, published in books, magazines, minutes, and memoirs. It is also possible to combine different materials (letters and photos) encouraging critical reflections to understand the historical moment(s).

Objective:
Collect the visual images (photographs) representing the different historical events of psychology in the Americas, linked, although not exclusively, to the development of the Interamerican Society of Psychology.

Format of the photos:
1. Scanned digital images / photographs (high resolution or best quality possible).
2. Provide title(s) and the date(s) of the events (i.e. photograph, letters, etc.).
3. Include description(s) to contextualize the image(s), and the people portrayed and/or the activities of the event(s) informing the historical significance of the illustrative material.
4. Maximum of 500 words to describe the material.
5. APA format references and citations.
6. Font: Time New Roman, 12, single space, justified.
7. Include: Name and Surname; Institution: Contact.
8. References (APA format): maximum of 5 images.
9. All images (past and current times) are welcomed, as long as they have historical significance.
10. Language: Spanish, English, French and Portuguese.
11. Accepting 5 contributions (photos, letters, etc.) per author.

Deadline to submit the material: December 15, 2021

Please submit the material to:
Dr. Miguel Gallegos: maypsi@yahoo.com.ar
Vice president South America (2021-2023)

Declaración de la SIP sobre la situación socio política de Colombia

Agradeceremos pueda apoyar con su firma la Declaración de la Situación Socio-Política de Colombia (La forma cierra el 15 de junio)

La Sociedad Interamericana de Psicología (SIP) mira con preocupación la situación sociopolítica por la que atraviesa Colombia, y llama a las instancias implicadas en el conflicto, a desarrollar estrategias que propendan por la búsqueda inmediata de salidas pacíficas y negociadas, con acuerdos que satisfagan las necesidades de la población y favorezcan la conservación de la institucionalidad.

Frente a los hechos ocurridos en los últimos días, donde se han observado expresiones de violencia provenientes desde diversas esferas sociales e institucionales, hacemos un llamado a la cordura, al respeto a los derechos humanos y a la búsqueda de acuerdos negociados, con una participación multiestamentaria, que posibilite la articulación de diversos puntos de vista, y la definición de planes de acción que se reviertan en estrategias para atender las necesidades apremiantes del país.

Desde la SIP consideramos que la vida, la seguridad y la integridad de los seres humanos deben ser veneradas y protegidas. Hechos como los que están sucediendo crean condiciones catastróficas en lo psicológico, social y moral para la población en general. La ocurrencia de estos hechos, puede tener incidencias traumáticas en las personas y daña las posibilidades de alcanzar una sociedad más justa y equitativa para todos los ciudadanos. Más aún, este tipo de situaciones perpetúa el daño psicológico creado por la desigualdad social, que se traduce en incremento del trauma, depresión y angustia, al tiempo que agrava condiciones corporales como la tensión, la presión arterial y los accidentes vasculares tal como lo atesta la nutrida investigación al respecto.

La SIP rechaza enfáticamente situaciones como las ocurridas, aboga por la resolución expedita y humanitaria de esta situación y ofrece toda su colaboración y recursos para aportar a la reducción de la inequidad, la estigmatización, el odio y la polarización ideológica, asociados a los hechos que acontecen en la nación.
