The Disability and Advocacy Research Network is for folks with disabilities in psychology at any career stage (including students).
We also welcome allies and those who study, work with, and/or teach about disability. Following a social model perspective, anyone who identifies or is viewed by others as having a disability can be considered to have a disability. This includes but is not limited to physical, sensory, cognitive, invisible, chronic illness, and mental health conditions. DARN facilitates community building, mentoring, professional development, and resource sharing.
Additionally, we have two special interest subgroups
DARN Research Subgroup
Co-led by Jordan Rubin-McGregor and William Meese
A group for folks in psychology interested in researching disability or researching while disabled.
DARN Teaching Subgroup
Co-led by Kathleen Bogart and Nicole Rosa
A group for folks in psychology interested in teaching about disability or teaching while disabled.
DARN is made possible through the help of outstanding volunteers.
Thank you Thomas Dirth, Emily Doffing, Nazanin Heydarian, Jordan Rubin-McGregor, William Meese, Hannah Mundinger, David Myers, Joan Ostrove, Nicole Rosa, Carolyn Shivers, and Katie Wang!
DARN was founded in September 2021 when it was funded by a Community Catalyst Grant from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology.
