APA Annual Convention,
July 31-August 4, 2013
2013 Division 46 Convention Program :
Media Psychology and Technology:
Avatars, Telehealth, Twitter, oh my!
From the big screen to the mobile technology device in your pocket, media continue to contribute, and arguably change, how we relate to the world around us and each other. This year, we seek research, case studies, and dialogue on both traditional media and emergent media technologies for the academic, applied, and practicing psychologist.
Division 46, Media Psychology, is looking forward to a dynamic and informative convention in Hawaii for 2013. Our division has a long-standing interest in topics within the field of media psychology including technology, telehealth, and the articulation of psychology through various media channels. For the 2013 convention we are concentrating on newer media technologies (such as augmented reality, virtual reality, and social media) and how they can be used and studied through the lens of psychology and mental health care. Research, case studies, and application are of particular interest and focus..
New for 2013 – in-suite programing!
We will be providing demonstrations of technology applications, tools to try out, in-depth discussion, and presentation important to the psychological community on topics such as social media strategy for professionals, augmented reality, blogging and website design.
Sponsors are welcome and encouraged. Several have signed on already. Please let us know if you have any potential presentation, demonstration, or sponsors for the in-suite programming. All sponsors will be recognized formally and informally in society related materials and publications.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or ideas
