Education and Psychology
Elementary and secondary school teachers can apply a wealth of psychological research in their classrooms. Psychology's insights can help teachers manage behavior problems, motivate students, assist struggling learners, handle stress and support talented youth. APA also supports the teaching of high school psychology.
APA offers undergraduate psychology faculty and departments tools to improve classroom teaching, evaluate program quality and construct curricula. As one of the most popular undergraduate majors, psychology can prepare students to be successful in many different careers.
Advanced degrees in psychology prepare students for careers as researchers, academics or licensed clinical psychologists, among many possibilities. Changes in the academic and professional landscape require an understanding of career trends in academia, doctoral internship supply and demand, postdoctoral requirements and nontraditional career paths.
Programs available for CE and life-long learning for psychologists and other mental health professionals; as well as, information for organizations to become APA-approved sponsors to offer CE programs.
