Southeast ECO is a regional extension of the Society for Community Research and Action (SCRA, http://scra27.org). ECO conferences are organized by graduate students and allow community psychologists and other folx from applied settings to gather. We welcome cross-collaboration, including but not limited to community organizers, public health, social work, the arts, and technology.  The theme for the conference is "Architects of Humanity: Decolonizing the Future of Community Psychology." We are guided by a call to explore worlds where those who are most marginalized thrive, humanity is affirmed, and communities’ well-being is reflective of a commitment to liberation. The conference will include storytelling, poster presentations, research talks, and teach-ins. We encourage multidisciplinary work and work that centers marginalized communities. We invite submissions that acknowledge and include strengths and knowledge from multiple perspectives. Join us as we bring together scholars, community members, writers, health professionals, educators, scientists, and artists for teaching, workshops, storytelling, and the practical application of psychology to communities.Topics may include, but are not limited to:
  • Community Empowerment
  • Decolonizing Efforts and Practice (Health, Psychology, Education, Arts, Technology, etc.)
  • Prevention, Intervention, Sustainability 
  • Intersection of the Arts and Psychology
  • Community Healing and Public Health
