PAP goes to Kadayawan!

In August 14-16, 2008, the PAP will be holding its 45th Annual Convention in Davao City. The convention will be co-sponsored by the Brokenshire College, and will have the theme “Facing Emerging issues and Building Better Futures: A Call to Psychologists.” The theme expresses the PAP’s recognition of the important role that psychologists can play in addressing important issues that the country now faces, particularly those that have a strong impact in shaping the future of the Filipino people.


The 45th Annual Convention will feature several plenary lectures by leading Philippine psychologists who will speak about current work in Philippine psychology that addresses some of the most important issues facing Philippine society today. Three issues will be highlighted: leadership and governance, indigenization and identity, and the environment. There will also be research paper presentations by psychologists from different universities and organizations in the country organized in thematic sessions. These presentations will showcase the most recent research investigations in the different subfields of psychology. Finally, there will be continuing professional education workshops that aim to develop the capacities in the different aspects of psychological scholarship and professional practice.


Last year, the annual convention was held in Tagbilaran City, Bohol with the theme, “One Philippine Psychology: Unity amid Diversity.” Susumu Yamaguchi, PhD from University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan was the keynote speaker. 


This year, it will be the second time that the national convention will be held outside Metro Manila. The convention dates will fall on the weekend before the Kadayawan Festival, when Dabawenyos celebrate and give thanks for the land’s bountiful harvest of fruits and flowers.
