Dr. Christopher Bishop, Associate Professor of Psychology, presented at The Association of Black Psychologists Annual Convention in Oakland, California, June 29, 2018. The panel entitled, “Building for Eternity? Ethics Matters”, reviewed the Revised Ethical Standards and discussed how a new approach to ethics can provide a foundation for “building for eternity”. Based on African centered principles, the revision relies heavily on Ma’atian ethics which are more about building a “moral society” than about attributing blame or punishment.
Additionally, Dr. Bishop, alongside Trinity adjunct, Dr. Michelle Goodwin, presented at the Forensic Mental Health Awareness Conference on Friday, May 11, 2018, at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Washington, DC campus. The program titled, “A Primer to Understanding Juvenile and Adult Competency to Stand Trial Evaluations” provided the audience with a basic understanding of how competency to stand trial evaluations are conducted with adult and juvenile populations.
