Regional APA Psychological Associations

APA has seven regional psychological associations (see below). Each of the regional associations typically has STP related programing. Additionally, annually each regional conference will have either a Harry Kirke Wolfe Lecture, G. Stanley Hall Lecture, or an STP sponsored Speaker. Each regional has an STP coordinator and they develop and facilitate teaching of psychology programming. We encourage you to attend and present STP related programming at regional APA conferences. 

For questions regarding STP programming at regional APA conferences please contact
