Several special interest area groups have been without chairperson(s) for several years and it is unclear if some groups have disbanded. As would be expected, SIAGs will change as the field and the needs of the society change; Some SIAGs may no longer be pertinent. Groups currently without chairs are Assessment and Diagnosis, Policy, Treatment Innovation, Occupational Trauma, and Psychopharmacology. If you are interested in chairing an existing SIAG, starting a new one, or your group is not listed, contact Deborah Ross at 847-480-9573.

The ACE study was conducted during a seven-month period at Kaiser Permanente's San Diego Health Appraisal Clinic.
