APA Annual Convention – American Psychological Association
August 8, 2019 - August 11, 2019$920
The annual convention of the American Psychological Association is the largest gathering of psychologists and psychology students in the world. The convention each year attracts 11,000–14,000 or more attendees from all areas of specialization in psychology and from research, practice, education and policy.
Attendance at most of the sessions is covered in your registration fee. (There are extra charges for APA Continuing Education Workshops and for obtaining CE credits by attending CE sessions.) You will be able to attend any open session and often can ask questions of presenters, who not infrequently are world-renowned experts in their respective fields. You will also be able to connect with some of the world’s finest talent in your particular area of interest in psychology.
APA is not just a convention for specialists. This is the psychology convention where you can interact with specialists in your own field as well as with those from other fields in psychology. This provides the opportunity to broaden your understanding about how other areas of psychology can affect your own. The presence of researchers, educators, practitioners, and policy experts also provides great opportunities for synergy.
