Workshop Description:

We invite you to "Preach to the Choir" of International LGBTQ Psychology researchers. What do you want to share with others in the field of LGBTQ Psychology? What methods, research questions, samples, and findings are important for moving the field forward and ensuring that our research collectively remains on the cutting edge? Where will the field be in 5, 10, 20 years? What can be learned from the history of this new field?

In order for LGBTQ Psychology to be an effective scientific discipline, it must achieve two goals:

1 - Disseminate LGBTQ Psychological Research to a broad academic and clinical audience in order to improve the uptake and utilization of research findings;

2 - Advance the field of LGBTQ Psychology as a separate and valid area of inquiry within the broader field of psychological science.

Meeting these two goals can require separate approaches to research dissemination. While the first might require presenting a form of your research that can be understood and used by a broad, non-LGBTQ-expert audience, the latter requires that researchers in the field learn from each other in order to advance methods of best practice within the field and generate dialogue concerning the field's challenges, debates, and controversies.

The 2018 Conference is designed to meet both of these goals! The pre-conference invites you to "Preach to the Choir" and move the field of LGBTQ Psychology forward, while the general Congress provides the opportunity to reach more generalist audiences in other areas of Psychology from around the world.
