APA Collaborative Programming for the 2015 APA Convention

2015 APA Convention to be held Aug. 6-9, 2015 in Toronto, Canada

APA Division 15 wants to alert all its members to a new, exciting opportunity for the annual convention. Starting at the 2014 convention, APA launched their new collaborative programming. The goal of collaborative programming is to present work that cuts across multiple APA divisions. These submissions must include at least two divisions and address current issues in psychology through an innovative, creative, and scientific approach. These submissions are due earlier than the regular deadline. Collaborative submissions are due at 5PM (EST) on October 15th, 2014 at www.apa.org/convention.

The deadline for regular (non-divisional collaboration) proposals is at 5PM (EST) December 1st, 2014. In the event that a proposal submitted by the October deadline is not accepted for the new collaborative programming, it will be returned to the divisions for consideration under the traditional division programming process.

Special consideration will be given to proposals consistent with the following 2015 APA Convention themes:

  • Competencies at the Intersections of Diversities
  • The Promises and Pitfalls of Technology
  • Disparities in Health, Wellness, Justice, and Education
  • The Psychology of Work and Group Dynamics
  • Emerging Areas of Science, Practice, and Education: Lifelong Training for Psychologists
  • Violence, Bullying, Victimization, and Trauma
  • Embracing Interdisciplinarity: Reaching Out Beyond Psychology

Your ideas and questions are welcome! Please contact the APA Division 15 Program co-chairs, Scott C. Marley (Scott.Marley@asu.edu) or Martin Jones (martinjones@unm.edu), if you have any questions.

We will send a separate flyer with information about the regular division 15 submissions in early September.
