Dear Colleague Psychologists in CANPA Member Associations:
On behalf of CANPA's Executive Council, I want to give voice to our sadness, empathy and sense of solidarity with to those of you, your families, friends, villages, towns, cities and countries that have been impacted by the recent hurricanes which swept across our region. Many of the countries represented in CANPA have been reeling under the impact of Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria, and will be bearing the continuing trauma of these events for some time to come.
CANPA will endeavour to keep on our front burner the responsibility to devise ways in which we can and must respond to help and to stand in solidarity when our small island developing states are impacted beyond our normal capacity. We will also work to articulate the vulnerability of our environments to the global effects of human behaviour in more developed spaces.
