PROFESSIONAL SECTIONS

For members

WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL SECTION?

A section consists of MIND members who are researching or working  on a common  topic or field related to MIND’s projects, or  want to pursue research or work in such  a field (e.g. psychotherapy). Each section consists primarily of professional members and may, upon application, accept students and friends as well.

Each application for a given professional section is reviewed by the MMA board and needs to meet the standard that section has set for its members.

Each section has a minimum of five members who adhere to section statutes and are in line with MIND’s objectives and goals. Sections have the opportunity to apply for funding from MIND to develop their own projects and will report to one of MIND’s associated departments.
