Florida Psychological Association Response to Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

 

The Florida Psychological Association would like to offer our condolences to all of the victims, families, and the congregation affected by the tragic shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania yesterday.  When we face the senselessness of hate crimes in our personal and professional lives, we are reminded of the importance of access to mental health care and crisis response for those both closely and distally impacted.  A statement by APA President, Dr. Henderson, highlights how hate crimes are devastating to a community and that those affected can experience more intense psychological reactions to the tragedy (https://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2018/10/pittsburgh-shooting.aspx).  In support of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association, we would like to direct affected individuals to seek assistance through local disaster relief resources.  Psychologists across the nation stand in support of reducing and preventing violence.  Resources for those suffering distress or to better understand gun violence can be found online as well (https://www.apa.org/pubs/info/reports/gun-violence-prevention.aspx). 


Congratulations to the newly elected officers for 2019

Tom Bonner, PhD - President-Elect

Kristi Van Sickle, PsyD - Treasurer

With mid-term elections approaching and many changes on their way in Tallahassee, there has never been a better time to contribute to the Psychologists of Florida Political Committee. Your contributions help psychology and all Floridians with mental health needs to have a voice in Tallahassee. There will be a new governor and many new legislators.
