For the 2018 APA Convention, APA will continue to implement collaborative programming across divisions as a means of highlighting its unique role as a unifying force in psychology. We invite Division 15 members to propose collaborative sessions that would be of interest to those in various psychological disciplines.

Collaborative session submissions can be on any psychological topic, but special consideration will be given to proposals consistent with the APA 2018 collaborative programming themes, found here: In their proposals, submitters must identify a minimum of two (or up to seven) APA Divisions relevant to the proposal content.

Collaborative session organizers from Division 15—or those interested in pursuing Division 15 collaborations—are encouraged to contact the Division 15 Program Co-Chairs, Peggy N. Van Meter and Rayne A. Sperling at before submitting so that the Co-Chairs can assist with securing cross-division collaborations.

Collaborative Submissions are due October 13, 2017 by 5 p.m. ET.
