PPA2017 Theme: Striving to Overcome Interpersonal Violence

PPA2017 will carry on the theme started in 2016 of Overcoming Interpersonal Violence. This important theme permeates all aspects of our society, with technology heightening knowledge of these forms of interpersonal violence, and shedding light on action and inaction that occurs at all levels. The pervasive nature of interpersonal violence has long-lasting impact on everyone involved, including the attainment of developmental stages, positive interpersonal relationships, and healthy coping skills. Areas that will be addressed as we strive to overcome interpersonal violence during 2017 are community violence, human trafficking, domestic violence, Title IX/campus violence and bullying in all forms, including cyberbullying.


The goal, as it was in 2016, is to establish strategies to help our communities move from cultures of detachment and violence to cultures of cooperation, peacefulness, and nonviolence. Topics will seek to identify ways to highlight psychology’s value in homes, schools, workplaces, and our communities at large. We, as psychologists, can become change agents by working with other professionals and agencies to identify causes that fuel violence and develop concrete tools that address and remedy these issues. Nonviolence can be promoted through advocacy and the dissemination of educational tools that reinforce an evolving view of cultural differences, self-awareness, violence, and trauma.

The legacy continues at the world-class Springs Eternal Spa incorporating treatments with mineral waters, and a magnificently restored golf course. From the luxurious guest room accommodations and delectable dining venues, to cutting-edge conference rooms—they have preserved all of the original historic charm with the addition of modern creature comforts.

Located in South Pennsylvania’s scenic Cumberland Valley just 90 minutes from Pittsburgh, 2 hours from Washington, D.C. and three hours from Philadelphia, Omni Bedford Springs Resort is 3 miles off the Pennsylvania Turnpike at Exit 146.
