ADVANCED RESEARCH AND TRAINING SEMINARS
ARTS is a program of international psychology (IAAP- International Association of Applied Psychology, IUPsyS- International Union of Psychological Science, and IACCP- International Association of Cross-Cultural Psychology) to provide training opportunities for scholars from low-income countries and to promote their attendance at the international congresses. In 2002 there were three seminars organized to be held on the campus of the National University of Singapore.
ARTS # 1: The Family: Culture and Psychological Functioning - July 4 - 6, 2002
Professor James Georgas, The University of Athens (Convener)
This ARTS received a good number of applications, and as a result the 14 participants selected to participate come from 12 different countries, some of which have never been represented before.
ARTS # 2: Emotion and Inter-cultural Adjustment - July 12-14, 2002
Dr. David Matsumoto, San Francisco State University, USA (Convener)
There are 13 participants in this seminar from eight different countries. The largest number come from India, which also provided the largest number of applications.
ARTS # 3: Work Place Safety, System Safety and Psychology - July 13-15, 2002
Professor Bernhard Wilpert & Dr. Babette Fahlbruch, Berlin University of Technology (Conveners)
Although one participant had to withdraw due to a last-minute illness, there are still 13 participants in this seminar from 8 different countries. A good number of participants come from India as the abstract for the seminar cited the Bhopal, India industrial accident as an example of a system-safety problem that psychology could address.
