SPSMM has a series of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) comprised of members, student affiliates, and professional associates whose professional and personal interests coalesce around specific issues. Taking part in one of these SIGs is a great way to connect with others in the Division who share your own focus.
Clinical Practice Special Interest Group (CP-SIG)
The Clinical Practice-Special Interest Group is intended to create conversations, share knowledge and experiences among SPSMM members engaged in the psychological treatment of men and boys.
Racial Ethnic Minority Special Interest Group (REMSIG)
REMSIG provides a forum for (a) clinicians to share ideas on clinical work with men of color, (b) research mentoring, collaboration, and exchange of ideas on the intersection of race, ethnicity, and masculinity, and (c) the provision of personal and professional support to members of the special interest group. In order to get more information or to join the REMSIG, you can contact Dr. Shalena Heard (email@example.com).
Sexual and Gender Minority Special Interest Group
Members of this SIG have focus on expanding our understanding of sexual and gender minority masculinities. For more information or to join this SIG, contact Will Elder – William.elder[at]utah.edu.
Student Special Interest Group (SSIG)
The SSIG section of the website is intended to be an informal but academic space for undergraduate and graduate students to learn and connect with others who have similar interests. If you would like to get more information or join the SSIG, please contact the Recruitment and Retention Co-Chairs, Ge Song – ges210[at]lehigh.edu and Maggie Korn – maggiekorn[at]gmail.com.
