Release of Latest Resource from the Office on Socioeconomic Status

An announcement from The American Psychological Association’s Office on Socioeconomic Status:

“The American Psychological Association’s Office on Socioeconomic Status is delighted to announce the release of its latest resource, the Resource for the Inclusion of Social Class in Psychology Curricula. This new release explores how social class and socioeconomic status are largely absent from textbooks in psychology and from topic areas routinely covered in syllabi. This information offers a purposeful sampling of readings that are multidisciplinary but are focused on enriching teaching within the field of psychology by identifying materials on SES, social class and classism. There will also be guides intended to provide psychology instructors with resources and ideas on integrating public policy related to socioeconomic status (SES) into the psychology curriculum. A brief guide to understanding the legislative process, legislative codes and how to search for policies. In addition, we have compiled a brief list of legislation related to socioeconomic status and/or economic assistance within the past 10 years.”
