USQ TAG session Fri 20 May

Exciting times for the TAG community. We’re expanding (just a little, but expanding nonetheless).

Data: The data we will be looking at is authentic suicide risk assessments and comes from psychological and psychiatric consultations where the client and clinician are talking about the client’s suicide ideation and suicide attempts.  Some TAG members may find listening to such talk distressing and may not wish to attend this session.

 

Room: Building B – 210.  Building B is where the School of Psychology and Counselling staff are located.  If you go in the big glass doors on level 2, walk toward the lifts, turn left and it is down the corridor on the right after my office.

 

Parking: I’m not sure how many of you are driving but there is limited public parking on campus.  You can park in P1 in the Psychology and Counselling Clinic car park spaces.  If there are no spaces, go around to P2 and park in the UQ Health car parking spaces.  They are after the speed bump. This is a link to the campus map http://www.usq.edu.au/ipswich/directions/map

 

RSVP for Lunch: My HoS has kindly agreed to shout us lunch so if you are coming along on Friday please let me know by COB Wednesday so we can get this organised.

 

If you have any problems my phone number is below and my mobile is 0409639148. See you on Friday.

 

Kind Regards

Andrea

Updated members pages and new events

The members page has been updated the inactive members have been removed and some new faces have been added. If you have been taken off in error, or you are new Australasian academic or research student please let us know at aiemca@aiemca.net and we can add your name to the list. There is no cost to join and all we need is your website address (academic preferably, but a simple bio website will do). Research students are encouraged to join.

Some upcoming conferences, the International Sociology Association World Congress, July 11-17, 2010 in Gothenburg Sweden and the International Communication Association Conference in Singapore June 22-26, 2010 in Singapore. Both are expected to include significant EM/CA contributions, submissions for each close soon so check the websites and book your flights!

Members page added

The members page from the legacy AIEMCA site has been transposed across to the new AIEMCA page. Users familiar with the previous site will note that biographical content hasn’t come across with the page. Individual members can have links to their biographical information on university or personal webpages. To update your information please email aiemca@aiemca.net. If you’re not a member yet and you would like to be email us a short (one paragraph) biography including your research interests and publications (if any) in the field.

Also thanks again to Alec McHoul and all his hard work on the previous website, hopefully by now revelling in his hard earned semi-retirement.

Members can also advertise their EM/CA publications through the website. Email us with the abstract and link to the publication and we will include your article on the monthly list of AIEMCA member publications.
