Division news

The primary purpose of the APA Archives is to collect, maintain, and preserve the records and information of permanent historical value of the Association and its affiliates. The APA Archives works to document the development of the field of psychology in America.

Tips from the APA Office of General Counsel

Every year, whether at convention or in January, APA Divisions change the leadership guard with some persons moving up, some persons moving out, and some staying put. With this comes a shuffling of many important elements to the function and history of the Division. Keeping track of these documents is very important not only for legal reasons but for archival purposes as well.

These documents can include:

Contracts (Publishing, Hotel contracts, employment contracts, consultant contracts, listserv agreements, etc.)
Corporate documents including bylaws and any amendments thereto, Division rules/policies and procedures, minutes of meetings
Listserv information
Financial statements
Investment statements
Annual reports
Copies of publications (journals, newsletters, books, etc.)

For other documents with historical value, see APA Archives' section below.

As there always is turnover within Division leadership and therefore home offices, it is essential that Divisions work to keep their documents in one place. The Office of General Counsel, working with Division Services and Archives, can help you by keeping copies of these documents whether in paper form or electronically. We can have them scanned and saved on our system, while keeping the back-up hard copies too. For documents that need to be archived, please see below.

Document destruction

Further, it is important to underscore that, under Sarbanes Oxley, if you become aware of a threatened litigation or governmental or criminal investigation or proceeding involving, APA, the Division or related entities, you should cease destroying any related records or documents (including electronic records or documents). Additionally, it is unlawful to alter a record or document in any way in order to influence an existing or contemplated action. Should you have any questions concerning this policy, please contact any lawyer in the Office of General Counsel. Please review the attached copy of APA’s Document Destruction Policy.

Please feel free to email or call me with questions: Jesse Raben (+1/202) 414-8074.

APA Archives

The primary purpose of the APA Archives is to collect, maintain, and preserve the records and information of permanent historical value of the Association and its affiliates. The APA Archives works to document the development of the field of psychology in America. It also serves as a research resource for Central Office staff, Association members, and qualified researchers.

The early history of the APA and its Divisions (1917-1985) reside in the Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress. While the time span covered is 1917-1985, the bulk of the records are concentrated in the period 1940-1980. A finding aid listing the materials available in the collection was prepared by the Library of Congress staff and is available in the Manuscript Division Reading Room, James Madison Building, of the Library and online at www.apa.org/archives/.

The APA Archivist is responsible for the collection, preservation, and management of all APA Central Office archival materials. The Archives assists Division officers in the determination of appropriate Divisional archival documents and serves as the official repository for said documents.

Archival records are those that have enduring value. Records or materials that are currently in active use are, by definition, not archival records. Division officers should note that materials sent to the APA Archives will always be available for review and use by Division officers and members. Division archival materials remain the property of the Division. Materials marked confidential will be treated as such and will not be available without special permission. Materials that should be considered archival include materials that reflect the historical growth of the division and/or the division’s contribution to the growth of the field of psychology.

Types of materials that should be sent to the APA Archives

  • Minutes of the executive, business and committees’ meetings

  • Membership and treasurer’s reports

  • Official correspondence sent to the Division and the official replies

  • Division published materials (books, journals, newsletters, brochures, booklets, posters, online articles, etc.)

  • Division’s membership meeting or conference call for papers, agenda and minutes, lectures and presentations.

  • Award recipients for the current year

  • List of elected fellows for the current year

  • Annual convention, division programming, hospitalities suite program

  • Rosters, membership directories and registers

  • Photographs of division events, officers and members (dated and labeled)
    Materials that are not appropriate for the APA Archives are non-historical items, such as meeting-room schedules, personal items, drafts, e-mail exchange, handwritten notes, blank and duplicate forms, circular instructions and guidance from the APA headquarters, etc. For assistance in determining the archival value of materials, please contact the Director of Archives.

Divisions should follow these archives procedures:

(1) A review of archival materials should be conducted by the appropriate officers of the Division with assistance, if needed, by the Director of Archives ( e-mail or (202) 336-5664).

(2) An Archives Record Inventory Form (click here for PDF and here for Word file) should be completed for each electronic transmission sent to the Archives by email or as a CD and a detailed list for the box of archival materials shipped to the Archives.

(3) Archival materials in electronic format can be sent as electronic attachments via Email or saved on a CD/DVD and mailed to the Archive address.

(4) Paper and other materials can be hand-carried to the APA Archives or mailed to APA Archives at the APA Address.

Materials received will be appraised by the Director of Archives and entered into the electronic database. A finding aid will be developed from this database. Materials deemed inappropriate for the Archives will be returned to the Division.

For more information, please contact APA Archives at (+1/202) 336-5664 or via Email.

Division 1 - News release: New Psychology Speaker Network

Starting in fall, 2008, a web-based new psychology speaker network is now available to students and community groups around the USA, to easily identify local speakers for their group activities. This national network was formed by a team of a dozen psychologists and others (listed below) working with three APA divisions--General (1), Teaching (2), and International (52). The network is accessible through these divisions’ websites, listed below. The current network of nearly 200 speakers is arranged by zip code, and covers all parts of the USA.

The speakers are all experts on their topics. Most are among the 4% of APA members elected a “fellow” of APA, based on their “unusual and outstanding” contribution to psychology. These include some of the premier psychologists in the USA--many leaders in their field, textbook authors, and at least four past-Presidents of the Association.

Their topics span the full range of psychology--science, practice, teaching, consulting, advocacy. Some topics are general--such as stress, aging, sexuality, child-rearing, faith. Other topics are very specific--such as crib death, airport screening, sleep inertia, laterality. Still others are highly practical for students and professionals--such as licensure, careers, teaching, ethics, publishing. Some are more off-beat--such as “How to fire your therapist.”

The network also includes instructions to international and US speakers who plan to travel, describing how they can locate a contact person at schools on their itinerary where they might offer to speak. This uses the zip-code websites listing 1,200 campuses registered with the two APA-affiliated honor societies, Psi Chi and Psi Beta.

Both APA and its divisions increasingly seek to actively “engage” their members in the work of the Association, this new network is a work-in-progress, designed to achieve several goals. Besides helping the experts themselves to accurately “spread the word” about psychology to students and the public (in contrast to “pop psychology”), it actively engages these experts in a new way in the work of the Association.

This network was made possible by two mini-grants from CODAPAR, the Committee on Division-APA Relations. Based on an evaluation of experiences with the network this fall, it may be expanded in size and purpose in 2009.

The network is accessed at http://www.internationalpsychology.net/Resources/PSYCHE%20speakers%20bureau%202008.doc, or through the homepages of Divisions 1, 2, or 52 at www.apa.org/about/division.html. It also includes links to more specialized speaker networks--such as mental health, human factors, and high schools. The web also offers regional lists of 1,100 campuses registered with www.psichi.org, and 150 two-year colleges registered with www.psi.beta.org.

Note: This network was constructed by Beverly Stevens (Illinois State). It was implemented by Richard S. Velayo (Pace) and Shay C. Mann (VCU). It was kindly funded by two mini-grants from the APA Committee on Division-APA Relations (CODAPAR) to the Presidents of three APA Divisions--International Psychology (Michael J. Stevens, Uwe P. Gielen), Teaching (William F. Buskist), and General Psychology (Thomas J. Bouchard, Harold Takooshian). The developers warmly thank many folks for their kind assistance, particularly Troy Booker of APA Division Services, Emily Leary of TOPSS, Lisa Mantooth of Psi Chi, Jerry Rudmann of Psi Beta. Direct any inquiries or suggestions to the current Director, Harold Takooshian, at (+1/212) 636-6393.


Division 17 International Counseling Psychology Conference a big success!

There were 1,,444 attendees at the International Counseling Psychology Conference (ICPC), which was held in Chicago March 6-9, 2008. The title of the conference was Creating the Future: Counseling Psychologists in a Changing World and it was sponsored by the Society of Counseling Psychology (SCP), Council of Counseling Psychology Training Programs (CCPTP), and the Association of Counseling Center Training Agencies (ACCTA).

The conference included keynote presentations by Drs. Andres Consoli, Nhlanhla Mkhize, Sandra Shullman, Nancy Boyd-Franklin, M. Eduarda Duarte, and Li-fei Wang. There were four rewarding days of symposia, roundtable forums, continuing education, and professional training, which was organized to promote interaction and collaboration among counseling psychology practitioners, researchers, and scholars, as well as psychologists in all stages of their careers from all over the globe.

Nearly half of the attendees were students, and over 115 international participants traveled from 40 countries to attend, including Liberia, Botswana, South Africa, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Israel, Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Britain, Sweden, Iceland, Venezuela, Guatemala, and Canada.

One of four inspirational opening presenters, Dr. Nhlanhla Mkhize from University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, encouraged participants to “incorporate indigenous worldviews in the Counseling Psychology syllabi,” view “human life as interconnected,” and see “human beings as forms in waiting.”

ICPC attendees formed over 21 working groups on a variety of topics, including: The Advancement and Enrichment of Counseling Psychology in International Settings, Best Practices of Prevention, Practicing Feminist/Multicultural Therapy in a Conservative Environment, International Research and Teaching Alliances, Responding to Hate in Institutions of Higher Education, Transgender Concerns, and Training Models. PowerPoint summaries of each working work are now available on the conference website.

At the closing session several attendees remarked that they finally felt included in a U.S. professional conference because of the global diversity of the participants and the international programming. The ICPC International Scholars and Students Group summed up the conference by identifying the four essential elements as four E’s: Enthusiasm, Excitement, Enrichment, and Empowerment!

Survey data, working group presentations, press releases, statistics, awards, and photos are posted at www.icpc2008.org.


Congratulations to APA’s newly elected 2008 initial and current fellows

Hats off to the 128 Initial Fellows elected by the Board of Directors and Council of Representatives at this years annual convention. We also want to send congratulations out to the Current Fellows nominated for 2008 as well. The 2008 Initial Fellows will be receiving their certificates from the Fellows Committee sometime in October.

A special note to the Division Fellows Chairs, give yourself the edge and get an early start by following these suggestions from the APA Fellows Committee: invite your division fellows committee to think about possible nominations, look at the division’s membership roster to identify possible nominees, and for those divisions that depend on nominations from the division’s membership, begin your announcements regarding call for nominations in your division’s newsletter. If you need help or have any questions, please contact Sonja Wiggins in APA’s Central Office at (+1/800) 374-2721 (ext. 5590) or via Email.

Council new business items – August 2008

The Committee on Division/APA Relations (CODAPAR) provides the following information to division officers to increase the awareness of and opportunity for division input to governance issues that are on the current agendas of APA boards and committees. What follows is a summary of new business items submitted between the close of the February 2008 and August 2008 sessions of Council. The Agenda Planning Group, which is made up of the chairs of APA standing boards, CSFC, CODAPAR (representing division interests), CAPP (representing state/provincial interests) and APAGS reviewed the items and referred them to APA groups for consideration. Divisions are invited to comment on these items. Summary statements for each item appear below, along with a list of the APA boards and committees to which the item was referred. The board or committee appearing in bold has been designated lead group for the item. Division comments on each item should be directed to the lead board or committee at the APA address.

The board/committee acronyms used in the listing are:
BAPPI – Board for the Advancement of Psychology in the Public Interest
BEA – Board of Educational Affairs
BPA – Board of Professional Affairs
BSA – Board of Scientific Affairs
CAPP – Committee for the Advancement of Professional Practice
COLI – Committee on Legal Issues
P&P – Policy and Planning Board

Item 34A: Best Practice Guidelines on Prevention, Practice, Research, Training and Social Advocacy for Psychologists
This item recommends that the Council of Representatives approves the document “Practice Guidelines on Prevention, Practice, Research, Training and Social Advocacy for Psychologists” as APA policy.

Referred to: BPA, BAPPI, BEA, BSA, CAPP and COLI

Item 34C: Membership in the American Psychological Association
