CLINICAL SOCIOLOGY NEWSLETTER – FEBRUARY 2019

ISA RC46

    ~~ from the International Sociological Association’s RC46 ~~

RC46 websites: https://www.isa-sociology.org/en/research-networks/research-committees/rc46-clinical-sociology

Dear RC46 Members,

Wishing you the very best (and the same for the world!) in 2019.

This newsletter contains reports from our vice presidents and secretary-treasurer.  Conference information (2019 and 2020) is available from vice president Tina Uys and there is a special request from board member Natalia Erokhova.  Natalia would like you to look at our RC46 Statutes to see if any changes need to be made.  Weizhen Dong welcomes our new and returning members, Jacques Rhéaume provides international news, Melodye Lehnerer discusses certification and careers, and Mariam Seedat Khan has developed some profiles of our members.  Sharon Everhardt would like you to contact her to discuss membership recruitment.  Michael Fleischer provides some information about program accreditation.  If you are interested in having your sociology or interdisciplinary practice program (e.g., clinical, applied, sociological practice, engaged public) or track accredited, please contact Michael.  Gianluca Piscitelli hopes you will submit an essay for publication online in Italy.

    ISA has been accepting grant proposals from the RCs.  We submitted our request for a little over $1000, the highest amount an RC of our size can request.  Thanks to the officers and board members for their help in developing the proposal.  The officers and board members also have responded to a request from two members of the ISA Executive Committee about ways in which ISA can increase participation from individuals whose countries are classified as B and C economies.

    This newsletter contains a number of requests for assistance.  Please respond as soon as possible.  I also hope you will attend our annual meeting in Oregon (USA) later this year.  And please remember to send me any items you would like included in our next newsletter.  We want to know about your publications, presentations, new positions, interests and concerns.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Jan

RC46 President

Submissions for RC46 Conferences in 2019 and 2020

Submitted by Tina Uys, Vice President for Programs

2019 (October 17-19)

RC46 will meet in 2019 with the annual meeting of the Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology.  The meeting will be held October 17-19 just outside of Portland, Oregon (USA). The AACS conference theme is “The Profession of Sociological Practice.” 

In the last quarter century, applied and clinical sociologists have marshalled significant momentum to “professionalize” sociological practice.  Join sociologists who serve the public in many different kinds of occupations.  The conference is open to all sociologists, social and behavioral scientists, and professionals who use social and behavioral science in business and industry, government, and academia.  AACS annual meetings attract practicing sociologists and other professionals from around the world who know how to make a difference.

AACS likes to say that it doesn’t just “present papers.”  AACS looks for innovation and creativity in content and presentation form.  Consider leading a professional development workshop, panel, roundtable, or poster session.  Proposals that address teaching with an applied or clinical focus also are invited  Program participants may submit papers based on their presentations to the Journal of Applied Social Science, AACS’s official peer-refereed journal, for publication.

AACS has a reputation as a student-friendly association.  Its annual meetings offer mentoring opportunities for students.  Students who attend AACS annual meetings are encouraged to submit their papers for the Undergraduate and Graduate Student Paper Competition.  Student teams also are welcome to participate in the Client Problem-solving Competition.

AACS pre-conference professional development workshops are available on Thursday afternoon for a modest additional charge for non-members.  Registration includes welcome and closing receptions, complimentary breakfasts by Embassy Suites with stay, keynote and presidential luncheons, and refreshments.

 The deadline for submissions to Tina Uys at tuys@uj.ac.za is May 15, 2019.  Tina will develop the RC46 program for inclusion at the AACS conference.  For more information, please visit AACS at https://www.aacsnet.net/, and explore the Conferences tab. If you have any questions regarding your proposal or presentation, please contact Tina.

The 2019 meeting of RC46 and AACS will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Washington Square; 9000 SW Washington Square Road; Tigard, Oregon, 97223, USA

Tel (503) 644-4000.  Tigard (the name of the community) is just outside of Portland.  

Reserve your room, using code XAA, for the special AACS Group Rate by 9/14/19.

Request for Assistance regarding Membership Recruitment

Submitted by Sharon Everhardt, Vice President for Development

     As I mentioned in our last newsletter, we are officially launching our new RC46-Clinical Sociology publicity campaign! We have updated our promotional materials and hope to start using them in the very near future. We need to recruit new members, which means we need all of our members to help promote our incredible and supportive group of researchers and changemakers. 

     In August 2018, I made a plea for help from our members, especially our Regional Representatives. Unfortunately, I did not hear from any of you. I am hoping that my second plea for input will drive some replies to my inquiry. We really do need your help with recruitment. This is not a job for one person or even two people. As Members (particularly those who are Regional Representatives), you are best suited to tell us what we need to be thinking about in terms of the different regions of the world.

      I need your ideas and cultural understanding of publicity needs in your respective areas of recruitment. I am requesting answers to the following questions from all our RC Members:

1) What do you need from us to promote RC 46?

2) What cultural issues do we need to be thinking about in the development of materials?

3) What languages need to be used in the materials?

We hope to be able to start sending out promotional materials in March 2019. So, I would appreciate answers to the above questions and anything else you are thinking about in terms of recruiting new members by March 1, 2019. Please send your response to severhardt@troy.edu with a copy to the RC46 Regional Representatives Coordinator Suava Zbierski-Salameh (USA/Poland) smsalameh@gmail.com   Thank you for your assistance!

Invitation to Members

From Gianluca Piscitelli, RC46 Regional Represenative (Italy)

     I would like RC46 members to know that our publications (including those about clinical sociology) are downloadable from the website http://www.homelessbook.it/collana/sociologia-clinica/25   The publications are very popular among Italian professional sociologists, social workers and social operators. We are continuing to translate, into Italian, essays by foreign scholars and professionals; and meanwhile, we are proceeding to translate into English some essays written in Italian that we think are of interest for an audience wider than the Italian one. That’s why I am enclosing here a link to the first of these essays. 

Sociologia clinica – Homeless Book www.homelessbook.it Consapevolezza, adattamento creativo e crescita (brossura) Per una sociologia clinica dell’innovazione, del cambiamento migliorativo e del well-being

     We also would like to invite, through the RC46 newsletter, professional and scholar clinical sociologists all over the world to let our audience known about their work.  Please send us some short essays or articles (no more than 30-40 pages each).  Please write to me at gianlucaldebaran@gmail.com  I look forward to hearing from you.

Careers and Certification

Submitted by Melodye Lehnerer, Board Member

Careers in Clinical Sociology

The diversity of careers in clinical sociology is best characterized by a three dimensional matrix of clients, settings, and activities (Rebach and Bruhn 1991). The term clients refers to those persons on whose behalf intervention is conducted. The term settings refers to the various social and physical settings in which clinical practice takes place. Finally, the term activities refers to actions taken by clinical sociologists. Clinical sociologists fill many roles when actively involved in social change. Below are some examples of the roles these practitioners fill.

     Counselor: The clinical sociologist in effect practices “sociotherapy” that is allowing “the problems, their explanations, and the strategies and techniques for treatment to emerge. . . [from] a process of interaction in which disclosure and discovery lead to an understanding of the social context out of which the problems emerged” (Swan 1988). Counseling/sociotherapy takes place in many social settings: hospitals, mental health clinics, halfway houses, and private practice. Clients can range from those with physical and/or mental health problems to those experiencing life course crises/family disruption, to those with criminal behavior problems.

     Organizational Consultant: Clinical sociologists often work with organizations. When working with organizations, clinical sociologists focus their interventions on roles, relationships, organizational structure, and the environments in which the organization functions (Glass 1994). As intervention agents, clinical sociologists applying sociological methods, theory and knowledge can provide research and policy recommendations to solve problems related to such issues as power and authority, communication, as well as resource distribution and use.

     Mediator: Some clinical sociologists have become involved in conflict intervention, particularly mediation. Mediation is a flexibly-structured process in which an impartial third party helps disputants identify their individual and mutual interests and perhaps reduce or solve their differences. Mediation also is referred to as “facilitated negotiation.” Clinical sociologists, with their humanistic approach to improving programs and people’s lives, bring the following to mediation – multi-level system intervention, cultural competency, empowerment, and redefining the situation (Fritz 2003).

As a member of RC 46 how does your interventionist work fit into the matrix above. How is your work characterized? Are you, for instance, a consultant, mediator, educator, community consultant, or program evaluator? Consider sharing your work by engaging in the AACS certification process. A brief description of the process follows with contact information.

AACS Certification

The Certified Clinical Sociologist and the Certified Sociological Practitioner designations are awarded by the Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology (AACS) to experienced professional sociological practitioners who demonstrate excellence in their practice of applied, clinical, or engaged public sociology.

As part of the certification application process, applicants identify the designation they seek – Certified Clinical Sociologist or Certified Sociological Practitioner – in their application/portfolio materials. To help the applicant make this decision the working definitions of applied sociology, clinical sociology, engaged public sociology, and sociological practice are provided in a document titled, What Best Fits My Practice Experience (see the AACS website/certification http://www.aacsnet.net/).

To become certified, applicants submit application materials that include a Curriculum Vitae/Resume, portfolio, samples of work and/or publications, letters of reference, and academic transcripts. Application materials are evaluated by a certification review committee.

Practicing sociologists with either a Master’s or Doctoral degree may apply for certification. Those practitioners with interdisciplinary degrees are also eligible if their practice features a strong sociological component.

Major practice content areas include community development, conflict intervention, criminology/criminal justice, organizational development, gerontology, health, counseling, and social policy. In addition, many sociologists have developed unique practices which the certification process may accommodate.

Certification as a Clinical Sociologist or Sociological Practitioner indicates that your background, current practice, attitudes, ethics, and skills have been examined by certified professionals in your discipline and that AACS has decided that you have  met the standards for sociological practice as an applied, clinical, or engaged public sociologist. Please note that certification is not state-sponsored licensure.

You must be a member of AACS to apply for certification. Annual Membership fee for U.S. citizens is $90 USD; international membership fees are on a sliding scale. Please refer to the Membership form on AACS website (http://www.aacsnet.net/ ). The Certification Application Fee is $200 USD and is due at the time of application. The Portfolio Demonstration Fee is $100 USD and is due at least 2 weeks prior to the Portfolio Demonstration.

For more information about Certification, please contact: Melodye G. Lehnerer, Ph.D., C.C.S., AACS Certification Chair at melodye.lehnerer@csn.edu

REPORT FROM SHARON EVERHARDT, VICE PRESIDENT FOR DEVELOPMENT
We are officially launching our new RC 46-Clinical Sociology publicity campaign! You are the most important resource we have for the recruitment of new members! It is my belief that many sociologists are doing clinical work and do not even realize it. We need to encourage them to join on wonderful group. I firmly believe that clinical sociology is the future path of our discipline. We need to demonstrate to the world why sociologists are so important in addressing the world’s issues. This group is doing that. Therefore, we need to recruit like we have never done before. There is power in numbers!
Before we can launch this, we need the help of RC members, especially our Regional Representatives. What we need from you is your ideas and cultural understanding of publicity needs in your respective area of recruitment. We are requesting answers to the following questions from all our Regional Representatives and RC members:
1) What do you need from us to promote RC 46?
2) What cultural issues do we need to be thinking about in the development of materials?
3) What languages need to be used in the materials?
We hope to be able to start sending out promotional materials by the end of October 2018. So, we would appreciate answers to the above questions and anything else you are thinking about in terms of recruiting new members by September 30, 2018. Please send your responses to severhardt@troy.edu with copies to the Regional Representatives Coordinator Suava Zbierski-Salameh (USA/Poland) smsalameh@gmail.com and jan.fritz@uc.edu

REPORT FROM TINA UYS, VICE PRESIDENT FOR PROGRAM
It was great meeting so many RC46 members in Toronto during the XIXth ISA World Congress. RC46 participated very successfully in the World Congress, where we held 18 paper sessions during which 53 papers were presented by scholars from 12 countries. One of these sessions focused on “Getting Your Sociology or Interdisciplinary Program Accredited By CAPACS (the Commission on the Accreditation of Programs in Applied and Clinical Sociology)”.

CERTIFICATION
Report from Melodye Lehnerer, Board Member: Certification and Careers

Certification Demonstrations at World Congress
This year at the XIX World Congress Meetings in Toronto two RC46 members successfully completed the Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology Certification Process. This was the first time certification demonstrations were held at an International Sociological Association meeting. The formal demonstration lasts 45-50 minutes and is followed by a 30-minute question and answer period. Those who participate in Q and A are a very important part of the demonstration process. Specifically, the Q and A period is a vital part of the demonstration because it allows the applicant to move outside the formal demonstration by interacting with peers and bringing in the passion which is so often a part of sociological practice. The key to a successful demonstration is for the applicant to illustrate competency in the use of theory and methods to bring about positive social change in an area of specialization. Both applicants achieved this goal.
Professor Lindy Heinecken’s certification demonstration titled, Researching the Military: From Theory to Practice, covered her sociological practice work with the South African Military. Professor Heinecken’s research focuses on the relationship between the armed forces and society. Her research aims to inform policy makers and military practitioners on issues of strategic importance.
Professor Mariam Seedat-Khan’s certification demonstration titled, SMART: A Learning Intervention, covered her clinical intervention work in the field of education. Professor Seedat-Khan utilizes teaching and learning intervention methodologies and practices to assist clients to process information effectively. The aim of Professor Seedat-Khan’s intervention is to teach clients how to maximize their learning capabilities to achieve positive academic outcomes.

Consider AACS Certification
As a RC46 Board Member and AACS Certification Chair, I encourage RC46 members to consider certification. A brief description of the process follows with contact information.
The Certified Clinical Sociologist or the Certified Sociological Practitioner designation is awarded by the Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology (AACS) to experienced professional sociological practitioners who demonstrate excellence in their practice of applied, clinical, or engaged public sociology.

As part of the certification application process, applicants identify the designation they seek – Certified Clinical Sociologist or Certified Sociological Practitioner – in their application/portfolio materials. To help the applicant make this decision the working definitions of applied sociology, clinical sociology, engaged public sociology, and sociological practice are provided in a document titled, What Best Fits My Practice Experience (refer to AACS website/certification
http://www.aacsnet.net/).

To become certified, applicants submit application materials that include a Curriculum Vitae/Resume, portfolio, samples of work and/or publications, letters of reference, and academic transcripts. Application materials are evaluated by a certification review committee.
Practicing sociologists with either a Master’s or Doctoral degree may apply for certification. Those practitioners with interdisciplinary degrees are also eligible if their practice features a strong sociological component.
Major practice content areas include community development, conflict resolution, criminology/criminal justice, organizational development, gerontology, health, counseling, and social policy. In addition, many sociologists have developed unique practices which the certification process may accommodate.

Certification as a Clinical Sociologist or Sociological Practitioner indicates that your background, current practice, attitudes, ethics, and skills have been examined by certified professionals in your discipline. By awarding certification, AACS indicates that you have met the standards of sociological practice as an applied, clinical, or engaged public sociologist. Please note that certification is not state sponsored licensure.
You must be a member of AACS to apply for certification. Annual Membership fee for U. S. Citizens is $90 USD; international membership fees are on a sliding scale. Please refer to Membership form on AACS website (http://www.aacsnet.net/). Certification Application Fee is $200 USD and is due at the time of application. The Portfolio Demonstration Fee is $100 USD and is due at least 2 weeks prior to the Portfolio Demonstration.

Josh Klein (USA) is a new member of RC46. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice and Sociology at Iona College (New York). He is putting together a multi-nation
research/educational group that will draw on the work of Euro-American radical Thomas Paine (1737-1809). Among his ideas are to establish a Paine Social Justice Center at Iona. The Center would publicize research, education and community deliberation focusing on social justice. One of the projects would be multi-country surveys regarding social justice and how Paine’s ideas about freedom, justice, truth and egalitarian issues are faring today. There are also ideas to have community members give their ideas to government representatives and to have student exchanges. If you are interested in discussing this project with Josh, please contact him at JKlein@iona.edu
