The Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association (AIPA) has helped to set up two groups to provide both information and networking opportunities. Both groups are hosted on the social media platform LinkedIn.
The Australian Indigenous Psychology Group is open to anyone supporting the aims and objectives of AIPA. The group provides up-to-date information on news, events, workshops, consultations and other issues of interest. The group is open and members are encouraged to contribute. This group also provides the opportunity for those seeking the expertise of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander psychologists and others working in a culturally responsive manner for Indigenous social and emotional wellbeing to promote appropriate positions and contracts.
ATSIPSN is a closed group that is co-moderated by AIPA and the Australian Psychological Society (APS). The group provides a private forum for the sharing of information and support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students across Australia. ATSIPSN was established as part of the Australian Indigenous Psychology Education Project (AIPEP) and has grown to over forty members. As a result of the network the 2015 and 2016 APS national conferences have included opportunities for students to meet with AIPA members and participate formally in AIPA and AIPEP forums. Two ATSIPSN members are also representatives on the Indigenous Psychology Advisory Group (IPAG) to the APS Board.
To join ATSIPSN you should be an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander undergraduate or postgraduate psychology student and first join LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com). Then go to www.linkedin.com/groups/6878278/ and send a request to join.
