Dr. Panch. Ramalingam
Hearty Welcome to the Members of InSPA Family!
It gives me an immense pleasure to welcome all the members to create a true family of psychologists to strengthen our InSPA with highest commitment towards services to the children of the country, in particular and global in general. My journey started with the professional activities of Indian Academy of Applied Psychology (IAAP) way back in 1991 and I attended IAAP conference at JNV University, Jodhpur in 1993. In the same continued spirit, our First InSPA Annual Conference was organized at the same University in 2011.
Prof. B. Mukhopadhyay is the person who sowed the seed for School Psychology in India through me in 2009. As per his aspirations, I planted and nurtured InSPA to this level with the guidance and support of Prof. G.P. Thakur, First President of InSPA and Prof. B. Mukhopadhyay, outgoing President of InSPA. They are our mentors in several respects to develop this Association. We have just completed a very meaningful and successful Decennial journey (2009-2019). As of now, we are passing through a very tumultuous phase with the challenging demands created by the pandemic COVID19. At this juncture, we the members of InSPA will continue our dedicated service to the society and especially, the children, our hope and future!!
Presently, we are collaborating with APA, ISPA, NASP, and APSPA for various academic ventures which would bear fruits in years to come. This three-year period of our term of office will strengthen the relationship between members and community. The action plan (2020-2023) will provide guidance to not only the members but also educationists, psychologists, and policy makers.
We welcome constructive suggestions from the members for future initiatives.
