Night sky with monuments in Washington, DCAPA is introducing a new convention-programming model this year.  In efforts to develop relationships across divisions and offer interdisciplinary presentations APA has allocated over 100 hours of programming for this initiative.  To be eligible for the collaborative programing (CPG) at least two divisions needed to be represented.  With a little bit of hustle, strong networks, and multi-skilled members, Division 46 has a strong presence on the CPG program.  The sessions include:

Division 46’s programming also includes a diverse media and technology rich list of symposia and posters. Several of the sessions have been identified as for continuing education and the APA Presidential track.

Division 46 is co-sponsoring Expanding Our Reach: Building Media Skills for Counseling Psychologists presented with Division 17 (The Society for Counseling Psychology) and Storytelling for Public Good presented with Division 34 (The Society for Environment, Population, and Conservation Psychology).  We are also co-listed on numerous sessions with other divisions.

Our social hour will be on Friday from 5–7 pm at the Marriott Marquis Washington, DC Hotel in the Monument Room.  We invite you to come and bring along any colleagues that might share an interest in media psychology and technology.  Do not forget to share the news of our events by using #APA2014 and #DIV46 or receive up to date programming information by following us at #DIV46.
