As part of APA President Norine G. Johnson's Presidential Miniconvention, "Psychology Builds a Healthy World: New Markets, New Research," three distinguished psychologists will give presentations on building better workplaces, families and communities:

  • James Campbell Quick, PhD, on "Working together: balancing head and heart," Monday, Aug. 27, 9 a.m.
