Un programa internacional a un clic de su email!

Saludos Miembros de la SIP,
Fast-Connect-Across-Borders es un programa que conecta a miembros de diferentes partes del mundo y organizaciones. Tiene como objetivo el de crear y mejorar el intercambio y colaboración entre estudiantes y profesionales de psicología. Las reacciones a un programa parecido, llamado “Fast-Connect,” que ya está funcionando hace más un año en la división internacional 52 de la American Psychological Association (APA), han sido sido muy positivos. “Fast-Connect” ha tenido un gran éxito y creemos que va a ser muy beneficioso para la SIP. Datos de la evaluación preliminar de este programa han demostrado entusiasmo de los miembros, satisfacción, y aprecio al programa. Vean un ejemplo del “Fast-Connect” y Fast-Connect-Across-Borders (Ven las fotos al final de esta presentación. A través del Fast-Connect-Across-Borders ofrecemos a los miembros de la SIP una oportunidad para colaborar con miembros de la APA Div52 International Psychology. Miren el sitio Web de la división 52: www.div52.org para tener una idea de la misión y intereses de la División.

¿Cómo funciona?

  • Con la ayuda de un gerente de relaciones, un estudiante (Student), un profesional en principio o mitad de carrera (Early Career Psychologist o ECP), y otro con más de 10 años de carrera (Senior) se conectan via teléfono, email, o Skype.
  • El miembro “Senior” entrevista al estudiante, quien en torno entrevista al miembro “ECP” quien a su vez entrevista al miembro “Senior.”
  • Cada entrevistador escribe un perfil corto de 160 a 180 palabras.
  • El autor del perfil envía al entrevistado el proyecto para ser editado.
  • El entrevistado hace una revisión rápida, reenvía el perfil editado, con una fotografía, al gerente de relaciones del trío.
  • El gerente de relaciones recoge y da formato a los tres perfiles y los envía a la lista de distribución principal APA Div52 así como a la lista de la SIP. Una copia del trío es archivada en la pagina web de la APA Div52 y también en la de la SIP.
  • Miembros de APA Div52 y miembros de la SIP reciben luego un email con el perfil del trio. Nota: En un trio siempre habrá 1 o 2 miembros de la SIP y 2 o 1 miembros de la APA Div52.

In Latin America professional training in psychology is typically based on the licentiate, a five-year program focused on academic and practical training in psychology. The degree is more comparable to a master’s degree than to a bachelor’s, and qualifies psychologists to engage in psychotherapy. For more information: Hernández-Guzmán, L., & Sánchez-Sosa, J. J. (2008). Practice and regulation of professional psychology in Latin America. In J. E. Hall & E. M. Altmaier (Eds.). Global promise: Quality assurance and accountability in professional psychology (pp. 109-127). New York: Oxford University Press. Please be aware that the category of “Early Career Psychologist” (ECP) means a psychologist, and/or academician, and/or researcher, and/or practitioner who is in his/her first 10 years of career, and the category “Senior” means that this individual has more that 10 years of career. These categories are for the purpose of Fast-Connect-Across-Borders.

Interviewed by Isabel Aponte, Student Member of SIP – Society of Interamerican Psychology

ISABEL APONTE GUZMAN

In 2014, Isabel Aponte started her masters program in psychology, with an emphasis on cognitive psychology, at the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico. Her interest in psychology emerged after she worked in school settings, assisting both parents and children. Isabel’s main interests, at the moment, are neuropsychology, physiological psychology, school psychology, and the application of different psychotherapeutic intervention models. Isabel also has a special interest in social psychology and particularly in research involving social experiments such as the Asch and Milgram experiments. In her practicum, schools refer most of her clients, but she also has access to a more diverse clientele, which she enjoys very much because it gives her a broader experience. Isabel’s professional goal is to specialize and acquire a doctorate in neuropsychology. More specifically, she would like to have the opportunity to develop, collaborate, and participate in the research of mirror neurons. Isabel would like to know more about neuropsychological testing and how she could pursue her goal in the US. She would welcome contact from other international professionals with similar interests from both Division 52- International Psychology and from the Interamerican Society of Psychology (SIP).
