Professional Organizations in the field of Psychology
Keeping in mind the careers and job positions you identified and discussed in past units, do a Web search and find a corresponding professional organization for a career of your choice in the psychology field. Add the link to that organization in your response (copy and paste the website address). You may not use the APA as your site, since you will be exploring that during Seminar this week. But you can use another other organization or any of the APA’s Divisions, which focus on the many specialty areas in psychology.
Some examples of professional organizations specific to your psychology degree include:
- I/O SIOP – Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://www.siop.org/
- Addictions – NAADAC – The Association for Addiction Professionals. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://www.naadac.org/
- ABA – Applied Behavior Analysis – Association for Behavior Analysis International. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://www.abainternational.org/
Once you find your own organization of interest, review what the organization has to offer and explain this organization could be useful to you as you pursue both an education and a career in the psychology field. My field of interest is substance abuse. Just has to be at least 200 words. Thanks
