Time is Running Out...Make Your Plans to Attend the APA Convention Now!
By Nicolle Singer
To help you take advantage of science programming at Convention, the Science Directorate has published a *Scientist’s Guide to the APA Convention* that is now available on the web. The guide highlights a wide variety of science-related sessions ranging from discussions on the controversial current topic of ethics and interrogations, to “The Search for Animal Consciousness” with Clive D.L. Wynne, to Phillip Zimbardo’s invited address on “The Lucifer Effect in Action.” Visit the APA Convention Web site to view the sessions that you won't want to miss. Paper copies of the guide will also be available during Convention at the Science Directorate’s booth in the Moscone Convention Center. Stop by to see us!
