Division 45 of the APA’s Society for the Psychology Study of Ethnic Minority Issues, applying psychological knowledge and techniques to ethnic minority issues. The Division's purpose is to advance psychology as a science and promote public welfare through research, to apply research findings towards addressing ethnic minority issues, and to encourage professional relationships among psychologists with these interests. It also represents ethnic minority concerns within the governance of the APA.

“Being an African American and Female in the field of psychology can be challenging at times. I face challenges within the field due to my cultural background and gender that other individuals may not have/had to encounter. However the beauty of being a student at MSPP is being able to educate others and spread cultural awareness into the practice of psychology and our respective communities. Diversity and Difference at MSPP is not just a concept, I feel my voice is heard. More importantly, I am able to share the Division 45 message with the MSPP community and have it truly respected, and encouraged.”

My View: Egypt one year later
An interview with MSPP Alum, Yasmine Saleh | January 25, 2012

Is there really anything to celebrate in Egypt today?

On this, the first anniversary of the uprising in Tahrir Square, I find myself being congratulated on the revolution by well-meaning individuals. I am often asked about the positive changes taking place in my homeland.

I see disappointment on people's faces when I tell them there is nothing to celebrate yet. Except for the ouster of Hosni Mubarak and his government, you see, very little has changed.
