The dinner will be at the Chai Gallery of East is East (http://eastiseast.ca/), with a 7-8 course meal featuring cuisine from the Silk Road: Afghanistan, India, Persia, Tibet, and Thailand. An organic salad bar and dessert are included. They are able to accommodate food allergies upon special request. Dinner will be followed by our guest speaker, Dinner will be followed by our guest speaker, Dr. Sheila Marshall, from the University of British Columbia. She will speak on a range of topics of interest to SRIF members that emerge from her research and thinking on "mattering and identity." So, as you plan for the SRA conference, save Thursday evening for our banquet, and be sure to register in advance so you do not miss out on this exciting event.

You can pay your conference registration fees, banquet fee, and SRIF Membership fees on the 'Membership dues' page. In order to enter the 'Membership dues' area of the SRIF web site you must first create an account and log in.
Poster proposals should address key issues of concern to identity researchers and theorists. SRIF is an interdisciplinary organization and strongly encourages submissions from a diversity of fields such as psychology, sociology, family studies, and anthropology. Due to space limitations, preference will be given to those submissions presenting projects with completed data analysis, but theoretical and pedagogical presentations are also welcome. All methodologies appropriate to the discipline, the data, and the issue under study are acceptable (including small sample, single subject and descriptive designs). Submissions should summarize data already collected and must include sufficient report of data analysis for reviewers to evaluate it.
If you are interested in submitting a poster proposal, it is important that you read the directions below carefully and pay close attention to the instructions while you are preparing your proposal(s). If you have questions, please contact the program committee (listed below). Improperly prepared proposals will NOT be reviewed.
Please email proposals to: Andrea White firstname.lastname@example.org

HEALTHY IDENTITY AND INTIMACY SKILLS SAFEGUARD AGAINST DEPRESSION.
Kristina Houck and Janet Gebelt
Erikson theorized that identity cohesion must exist before entering into intimate relationships. Furthermore, both identity cohesion and intimacy skills should correlate with psychological health. This study examines the relationships among identity, intimacy, and depression. Participants completed Eriksonian measures of identity and intimacy and the Beck Depression Inventory. Simple linear regressions showed that level of identity cohesion predicts intimacy skills for both men and women. Hierarchical regressions showed that identity alone predicts depression and that intimacy adds further predictive power. This was true for both men and women. Results are discussed in terms of identity and intimacy being safeguards against depression.
We look forward to receiving your submissions!
