A message from Cynthia, SIG Chair:
Welcome to the SPS Special Interest Group (SIG) page!
Here you will find the various special interest groups and their activities under the SPS. It is part of the “lifeline” of the Society where the different SIGs support the professional growth of their members as well as growing together as a professional body. In view of achieving this goal, the SIGs frequently organise activities, such as professional networking events to get to know their members, peer supervision events to grow together professionally and to align practices amongst practitioners, public events to promote relevant psychological knowledge to the public and community, and occasionally closed eventswhen the SIG feels the needs to address sensitive topics amongst its members.
So come and be part of a SIG today and let’s grow together PROFESSIONALLY and as a PROFESSIONAL BODY! Do find time to browse the various SIGs and see which one(s) interest you (however, please read their “Member eligibility criteria” too). See you at the SIG events!
SPS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) exist to support members in their professional development and facilitate the deepening of networks in focused areas of psychological practice.
Specifically, the role of a SIG includes:
- Promoting and encouraging the study, research and advancement of the science and practice of psychology in Singapore;
- Fostering discussion, cooperation and debate among members of the Society in the area of psychological interest.
