APA announces Advanced Training Institutes for summer 2011

The American Psychological Association will sponsor four Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) in the summer of 2011.  These intensive training programs are hosted at major research institutions across the country.  ATIs expose advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, new and established faculty, and other researchers to state-of-the-art research methods and emerging technologies.

This year’s ATIs are listed below.  Complete information about these programs can be viewed on the Advanced Training Institutes website.

  • Research Methods with Diverse Racial & Ethnic Groups
    Michigan State University
    June 20-24, 2011
    Application Deadline: March 30

  • Non-Linear Methods for Psychological Science
    University of Cincinnati
    June 20-24, 2011
    Application Deadline: April 6

  • Structural Equation Modeling in Longitudinal Research
    University of California, Davis
    June 20-24, 2011
    Application Deadline: March 30

  • Exploratory Data Mining in Behavioral Research
    University of California, Davis
    June 27-July 1, 2011
    Application Deadline: March 30

The content of each ATI has been updated to include the most current methods and approaches.  For example, the 2011 institute on Non-Linear Methods will include expanded coverage of multifractals and distribution analyses.

The ATIs on Structural Equation Modeling and Exploratory Data Mining will be held at UC Davis on consecutive weeks.  In order to help make it feasible for people to attend both of these ATIs, participants who are accepted and register for both sessions will receive a 20% discount on their tuition for each institute. 

Tuition for each ATI ranges from $300 to $1200, with students, post-docs, and APA members paying lower tuitions.  Participants may also apply for financial assistance.

APA arranges for group rates at nearby lodgings and encourages all ATI participants to stay at the same location.  Prices for accommodations have been negotiated at competitive group rates. 

Note that application deadlines begin in March.  Applications are available at the Advanced Training Institute website and must be submitted electronically through each institute’s webpage.  For more information, contact ATI or (202) 336-6000.
