Welcome Message from the Division President

Thank you for visiting the Division 52 website. As APA attempts to become more international, our division, the International Psychology Division, is critical to that effort. We understand and appreciate the diverse activities of psychologists worldwide. Among our goals is to facilitate and sponsor communication and interaction among the world’s psychologists. This year, our division is 25 years old! While that feels like a real accomplishment, it also reminds us that there was no such division in APA for the first 105 years of its existence. The United States of America, has sometimes been known as an isolationist country. Our division endeavors to open doors to better understand and appreciate the entire world.
