SSCP Student Social at APS Convention

We would like to formally invite all students attending APS to a special SSCP Student Social event! The event will be hosted at the New York Beer Company (a 2 block walk from the convention hotel).  A big thank you to our SSCP Campus Representatives for helping plan this event! 

We have ordered appetizers and pizza for lunch (including vegetarian and gluten free options), so join us and take a break from the convention, chat with leaders in the field of clinical science, and network with other graduate students!  

The following SSCP board members will also be attending this event for an informal Q&A: 
  • Bethany Teachman, professor of psychology at the University of Virginia, studies cognitive processes that contribute to the development and maintenance of anxiety disorders.  She is the past president of SSCP
  • Doug Mennin, professor of psychology at Hunter College, studies the application of affective science to the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders with a focus on the most complex and severe forms of these disorders.
  • Mitch Prinstein, professor of psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, studies developmental psychopathology and how interpersonal experiences in adolescence contribute to depression, self-injury, and poor health behaviors.  Mitch is the current SSCP president.
  • Stew Shankman, associate professor of psychology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, uses multiple methods of assessment to better understand links between anxiety and depression and familial transmission of emotional disorders.
  • Sara Bufferd, assistant professor of psychology at California State University, San Marcos, studies developmental psychopathology with a focus on the onset and course of emotional and behavioral problems in young children.
This event is open to all students, so please feel free to bring your friends so they can learn more about the many benefits of student membership! 

If you plan to attend the social, please RSVP to Rosanna ( by this Friday, May 15.  Please include if you plan to bring any friends with you to the social so we can estimate a total head count.
