PARTICIPATE IN NETWORKING
Dear Division 52 members – please read the attached and consider signing up to participate in FAST-CONNECT – the D52 program for connecting students, ECPs, and senior psychologists!
Hello Div52 Members! As many of you may know, the FAST-CONNECT program has been a success since its 2013 launch. Fast-Connect has provided visibility for Div52 members, has facilitated networking, and has fostered collaborations and mentoring. All of these activities combined have further united Div52 members, creating a sense of family.
The Fast-Connect Committee has completed 32 Fast-Connect threads, updated 32 profiles, and connected 96 members. Gradually, we are getting to know the expertise of Div52 members and their rich diverse cultural backgrounds. We are now looking at using Fast-Connect as one of the tools of Task Force 5. The efforts of this Task Force are directed towards expanding the reach of the division by connecting with new partners (groups, divisions, and associations in the US and abroad).
How does the FAST-CONNECT work? With the assistance of a facilitator, a student, an ECP, and a senior professional connect via phone, email, or Skype (The senior member interviews the student; the student interviews the ECP member; the ECP member interviews the senior member) Each interviewer writes a brief paragraph about his/her interviewee (Note: This is not a professional BIO. The objective of Fast-Connect is for you to share your interests, areas of work, languages, international work, and for us to know also a little about you, as a person and member of this international family). All this information needs to be contained in just 160/180 words. Each author sends the paragraph to his/her interviewee so that it can be edited. Each author sends the edited paragraph and the photo of his/her interviewee to the facilitator. The facilitator formats the thread and then sends them to APA Div52 Listserv and Facebook. A copy of the thread is archived on Div52 Website.
