SoAP promotes the advancement of research, clinical practice, and professional training within the broad range of addictive behaviors. Our 2013 theme is “Applying Clinical Neuroscience to Addiction Psychology", but we welcome proposals on a range of interests and perspectives in addictive behaviors. Symposia submitters are encouraged to include early career professionals as co-chairs and to strive for diversity of presenters. Symposia submissions that include researchers and clinicians are especially welcomed. As in previous years, SoAP will collaborate with Division 28 (Psychopharmacology & Substance Abuse) as well as other APA divisions with overlapping interests.

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions and seeing you in Honolulu!
