The Dictator Cometh: The Psychology of Rising Authoritarian Strongmen

Fathali Moghaddam

Georgetown University, United States of America

Many major societies have experienced a decline in democracy, and a rise of authoritarian strongmen, in the 21st century. In order to better understand and reverse this trend, psychologists must explore what I call 'political plasticity' (how much and how fast political behvaior can change) over the long term. This talk is based on three books, The Psychology of Dictatorship, The Psychology of Democracy, and Threat to Democracy: The Appeal of Authoritarianism in an Age of Uncertainty. I explore the springboard to dictatorship, and the psychological characteristics of the citizen capable of supporting and sustaining democracy.

11:00am - 12:30pmSymposium: Climate Justice
Virtual location: Zoom Link Day 1
Moderator: Erinn Cate Cameron, Fielding Graduate University, United States of America

Perhaps the most urgent crisis of our time, climate justice is both an ethical and political issue and disproportionately affects vulnerable and marginalized populations. This symposium will address psychology’s interaction with climate justice and psychologists' role in providing solutions.

 
 

Decoloniality, Epistemic (In)Justice and Climate Psychology: Views From Below

Garret Barnwell

Unaffiliated, South Africa

By drawing attention to the coloniality underpinning climate change, I argue that psychologists are able to resituate themselves more meaningfully in relation to global social struggles that seek not only to avert the climate crises but to address climate/coloniality. This decolonial option is fundamental for the flourishing of a pluriversal world.



Climate Justice and Survival - Lessons learned from the COVID-19 crisis

Thalia Magioglou1, Sharon Coen2

1University of Westminster; 2University of Salford

Drawing on the COVID-19 crisis, we argue that Survival is an Hegemonic Social Representation, a matrix whose elements are dynamically defined and constructed by different groups. The definition and establishment of the elements of the matrix could be key to whether actions promoting climate justice are supported and implemented.



Five Roles For Psychologists In Addressing Climate Change, And How They Are Informed By Responses To The COVID-19 Outbreak.

Stuart Whomsley

NHS, United Kingdom

Five areas where psychologists can help address climate change are: (1) Changing behaviors causing climate change. (2) Increasing human connection with nature (3) Advising leadership for planet protecting good governance. (4) Psychological interventions for those affected. (5) Preparing for bad outcomes. Responses to COVID-19) give insights for climate change responses.

Jessica Au1, Anthony Santoro1,2, Sonia Suchday1

1Pace University, United States of America; 2Columbia University, United States of America

Due to recent increases in Anti-Asian violence in the U.S., this study aimed to examine relationships among Asian identity, acculturation, stress, and belongingness among 166 East-Asian American emerging adults. Findings suggest a heightened awareness of racism is associated with increased stress and decreased feelings of belongingness among participants.



Recognizing the Role of Environmental Racism and Justice in the Climate Justice Conversation

Sheila Ann Turner

Fielding Graduate University, United States of America

The climate change conversation has focused on climate justice, often excluding environmental justice and racism. The attempt has been to ignore climate justice’s foundation within the environmental justice framework. Schlosberg and Collins (2014) conceived three concepts that confirm the intersectionality of the two to explore in more detail.

Interactions Between Demographic Characteristics, Loneliness And Psychological Wellbing Of Old People In South

Anathi Nomanzana Ntozini

University of Pretoria, South Africa

South African newspapers are laced with reportage of abuse of the elderly across the nooks and crannies of SA. There are also scientific/empirical evidences to support this claim. The stydy showed that physical abuse was more common among men while emotional, financial and sexual abuse were most common among women.



#MaskMadness: Implications of Mask Wearing Stigma on Mental Wellbeing in a Polarized Political Climate

Jaylee York, Clara O'Brien, Ashley Righetti, Lynette Bikos

Seattle Pacific University, United States of America

The practice of wearing a mask is a behavior that prevents disease transmission. Yet, mask-wearing has become politicized. As such, we will test a model of moderated mediation where frequency of mask-wearing mediates the relationship between experienced stigma from wearing facemasks and positive affect.

Symposium Overview - On Decolonising - Psychology

Polli Hagenaars

C5, Netherlands, The

This symposium discusses the meaning of decolonising for

  • Psychologists as persons - Decolonising the minds
  • Psychology in theory and research - Decolonising Psychology
  • Society - Decolonising Society

There is a growing awareness of the influence of colonial history on theory, assessment and practice of psychology. Also, the effects of former colonisation are still felt today, in global economic relationships, in social relationships, in attitudes and prejudices, and also in the transgenerational transfer of traumas to children of survivors.

How can psychologists on a global base, in representations, in epistemology, in practices, in relationships, work on decolonising minds, psychology and society?



Decolonizing Psychology In Developing Societies

Rama Charan Tripathi

Allhallabad University

Developing societies are often characterized as valuing ‘relatedness’ compared with privileging individual achievements. In most developing societies of the East, cultural knowledge is used to construct ‘relational selves’ that contrast with the "othering" imposed by coloniation. Psychologists in developing societies need to develop ‘glocal’ psychologies, incude construction of ‘local universals’.



Psychology and Pan-Africanism in Decolonial Times

Shose Kessi

University of Cape Town, South Africa

This presentation traces some key moments in the development of psychology as a discipline that has been both implicated in and resistant to forms of oppression and inferiorization across the globe and how a Pan-African lens to psychological research may contribute to the decolonial turn in the social sciences.



Sunt Lacrimae Rerum: coping with material traces of European colonialism

Giovanna Leone

Sapienza - Università di Roma, Italy

Insights on the role of objects in memory processes – traced back to classic descriptions of the human mind –, allow psychologists to better understand conflicting reactions to material traces of colonialism still present in the contemporary European environment. Such a research may give a specific contribution to decolonization processes.

Symposium Overview - Achieving Health Equity

Mary Beth Kenkel1, Zeinab Hijazi2, Jennifer F. Kelly3, Vikram Patel4

1Florida Institute of Technology, United States of America; 2UNICEF; 3American Psychological Association; 4Harvard Medical School

Health equity is achieved when people are able to attain their full health potential and are not disadvantaged from doing so because of environmental or social factors. Health inequities are reflected in differences in the length and quality of life; in rates of disease, death, and disability; in severity of disease; and in access to treatment. This symposium will identify the barriers to achieving health and mental health equity and describe strategies to reduce barriers to achieve equity.



Child and Adolescent Mental Health & Wellbeing

Zeinab Hijazi

UNICEF, New York Headquarters

Gaps in mental health care stem from historic lack of investment and action promoting positive mental health, prevention, and care for children, adolescents, and caregivers with mental health problems. This presentation will showcase UNICEF's multi-sectoral and multi-layered approach which reframes mental health as a lifespan asset.



Achieving Health Equity: Psychology’s Role

Jennifer F. Kelly

American Psychological Association, United States of America

Health disparities are preventable differences in the burden of disease, injury, violence, or opportunities to achieve optimal health experienced by socially disadvantaged populations. These systematic and avoidable differences are intensified by political, economic, and social influences. This presentation will address the contribution that psychology can offer in achieving health equity.

Interfacing Scholarship and Action in Promoting Gender Equality

Fanny M. Cheung

Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong S.A.R. (China)

Elaine Rogers

University of Limerick, Ireland

Disabled people are over-represented in less favourable social environments, under-represented in valued environments, and have reduced participation in decision making. This talk will consider this claim and reflect on some of the ways that psychologists can support disabled people.



Rethinking Disability Research: Moving the field forward

Rhoda Olkin

Alliant International University, United States of America

Despite important disability laws there are no changes in implicit attitudes toward disabled persons. To address this core issue we need research that informs a more widespread societal approach to improving conditions for disabled people. This talk focuses on specific suggestions for researchers and clinicians to move disability justice.



Disability, Invisibility, and the Unfinished Work of Transformation

Leslie Swartz

Stellenbosch University, South Africa

Despite a constitutional commitment to disability inclusion in South Africa, people with disabilities are left behind and subject to abuse and even death.

I suggest reasons for continuing exclusion. My particular emphasis is on the politics of inclusion and vulnerability in light of race and class struggles.
