from Machiko Fukuhara, Interest Group Coordinator
Being apopinted by President Natalie Porder to serve as Coordinator for ICP's Interest Groups, I am encouraging friends and colleagues ofthe ICP, Inc. to create groups which facilitate scientific research on specific topics. To take a first plunge, Dr. Ann Marie O'Roark and I are initiating the creation of a new topic entitled "Cross-Cultural / Interdisciplinary Study on Wellness of Human Beings" which aims to study scientific approaches to Human Wellness.
In addition to carrying out research, ICP Interest Groups prepare proposals for presentations to submit to ICP, Inc annual Conferences, to interim Conferences (regional, etc.) and/or to National and Internartional Conferences held in various regions of the world.
Interest Groups are encuraged to invite colleagues from other psychology related fields who may be interested to collaborate on research in order to enhance potentials for putting scientific findings into action.
By being involved in this activity, I hope we will be able to continue the development of ICP's emphasis on "Human Dignity" and the importance of reciprocal respect with others.
Let us work together!
