The Winter Roundtable is the longest running continuing professional education program in the United States devoted solely to cultural issues in psychology and education. The Winter Roundtable will continue its tradition of bringing together scholars, practitioners, researchers, social change agents and students interested in the intersections between race, ethnicity, social class, gender, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation in psychology and education.


This year's theme, "#hoodiesup2015: breaking cycles of violence, building alliances, mobilizing resources", celebrates 32 years of accomplishments, while beholding the promise of fighting social injustice by leaders in the fields of cultural psychology and education. 


We will emphasize research and interventions in community, school, and family settings, as well as individual development, regarding a wide range of topics, including language, literacy, access, wellness, cultural values, and experiences with oppression and discrimination.


The Winter Roundtable's legacy in honoring significant and promising research, practice, and training innovations in cultural psychology and education will include five highlighted conference features:


The presentation of the 12th Annual Social Justice Action Award
The presentation of the 25th Annual Janet E. Helms Award for Mentoring and Scholarship in Psychology and Education
The Student Scholarship Program
Pathways to Publication
Pathways to Practice

Dr. Miville speaks out on the conference theme of the 2015 Roundtable:    

"Like many of you, I have been deeply affected by several recent events indicating the ongoing and persistent impact of violence in its many forms. Being targeted and attacked simply for being a member of a group, as based on race (Ferguson), ethnicity (undocumented/unauthorized immigrants), gender (domestic violence, sexual assault), or sexual orientation (Tyler Clementi's foundation) has had a long history in our society. Many of the causes of these senseless acts of violence are linked with each other, and often are based on fear, hatred, maintenance of the status quo, unexamined positionalities, and sheer ignorance. Helping others to survive and thrive in the face of such horrific acts is what culturally competent psychology and counseling are all about...    

The theme of the Roundtable focuses on the types of violence affecting diverse communities, including both causes as well as effective strategies for counteracting violence at individual/personal, family, community, and institutional/systemic levels. We hope you can join us for a compelling and inspiring conference!"

Director of the Winter Roundtable
