SHORT BREAK/SWITCH PRESENTERS

HOLDING THE IDEOLOGICAL CENTER: HOW TO GET THINGS DONE AT WORK DESPITE EXTREME AND PARALYZING VIEWPOINTS
Speakers: Daven Morrison, MD

From professional service firms to public works departments, there has been an increase in tension and anxiety around language and psychological safety in the workplace.  When organizations make public statements, employees and managers often feel apprehensive about how they think, feel, and speak.  In our experience, leaders recognize emotions play a role but are often unable to connect them to values and ideology.  One model of affect theory creates very useful tool for understanding the conservative-liberal ideological continuum.  The workplace psychiatric advisor can play an important role in ensuring that ideological plurality promotes trust and cohesion at the workplace.  Daven Morrison, MD will review the normative and humanist models of ideology and how they relate to affect and psychological safety at the workplace.  The challenge of Truth Decay - and is special relevance for organizational leaders - will also be discussed.

Meeting Essentials

A Message from the President of AOOP
Seasonal Symposia

Due to safety concerns with COVID-19, we have decided not to hold an Annual Meeting in Chicago and instead hold four quarterly mini-meetings that will be called Seasonal Symposia. The same high-quality talks and discussions of organizational and occupational topics will occur virtually with about ¼ of the content traditionally delivered at the annual meeting. 

Our second AOOP Fall Symposium will be held on Saturday March 6th at 2:30 PM EST for approximately 2 1/2  hours.  The first symposium will not have CME associated with it, however following ones will.  We also will be staggering future meeting days and times to allow for different time zones and international members to more easily participate.  Presenters and topics are in the works and will be updated on the website soon.
