The APA Board has approved the recommendation to create an Exploratory Committee for Applied Psychology for 2020-2022. The group will explore how applied psychology should be represented and promoted within APA and the field of psychology and serving in an advisory role for planning and operations of the Office of Applied Psychology.
This is an important success in Division 19’s agenda of enhancing the voice of all types of psychologists inside and outside the Division and APA. Our own President Eric Surface participated in the Advisory Group for Applied Psychology that made the EPAC recommendation. More information will be forthcoming as EPAC develops.
