Dr. Chris Stout

Dr. Chris Stout"I am most fortunate to co-chair with Dr. Kaslow and to be able to work within such a great Committee. We have been granted an extraordinary opportunity to move psychology forward, not only in “at-the-table” global discussions, but as collaborators and facilitators working beside our psychology peers and other united professionals.”

Chris is the Founding Director of the Center for Global Initiatives and Clinical Professor in the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has published over 30 books including a recent three volume set, The New Humanitarians (Praeger, 2009). He is the recipient of humanitarian awards from APA, IPA and PsySR and was named by Division 52 as the 2009 International Psychologist of the Year.

Dr. Florence Kaslow

Dr. Florence Kaslow“It is a privilege to be serving as co-chair with Dr. Stout and to be working with such a distinguished and hard working committee and outstanding staff to expand and implement APA‟s partnership and leadership roles in the realm of international, global psychology, and to support APA‟s superb NGO team at the UN. Our universal outreach and involvement through the OIA is one of APA‟s important endeavors, and it is an honor to be part of this.”

Florence is Director of the Florida Couples and Family Institute and President of Kaslow Associates in Palm Beach, Florida. She is the recipient of numerous awards for her contributions to international family psychology, including APA’s Award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology.
