The Psychology, Culture, and Religion Group:
|Working at the intersections of religion and psychology||
PCR is an informal association of scholars and practitioners in the fields of religion and psychology who share common interests in the relationship between religion, psychology, and contemporary cultures. The group's primary purposes are:
|Bringing together academic reflection, personal experience and supportive cooperation||
Participation by practitioners and theorists alike has brought together "real-world" political, social, and personal issues with careful and rigorous academic reflection and sensitivity to interpersonal processes in an atmosphere of friendly, constructive, and supportive cooperation. Among the group's traditions are AAR Annual Meeting sessions in which members have the opportunity to reflect upon the multiple identities and locations they occupy in academy, clinic, and church. These truly interdisciplinary and "inter-professional" conversations are one of the practices that make PCR so effective as an intellectual community. Many participants continue to remark on these sessions as a welcome variation on standard academic fare.
Membership dues in PCR support resources for audio-visual equipment at the Annual Meeting. These costs, imposed by the host city hotels, have been increasing steadily over the past several years. Feel the warm glow of knowing that you're helping to enhance PCR sessions, subsidize grad students' attendance at the PCR dinner and to distribute PCR-related information to scholars, clinicians, and clergy members interested in our work.
