Message from the 2015 President

Cathy McDaniels Wilson, PhDWelcome. Our division provides political advocacy for SPTAs and state issues within the governance structure of APA; it facilitates communication among SPTAs, their staffs and their members; it also promotes and recognizes the activities of individual SPTAs and their representatives.

Outstanding Leaders

Since 1992, Donald McAleer, PsyD, ABPP, has held various positions in the Pennsylvania Psychological Association governance. During his presidential year (2001-2002), he worked with others to franchise the doctoral students of Pennsylvania, drawing them into the larger professional organization. Together they formed the Pennsylvania Psychological Association of Graduates Students, a student organization that bolsters the advocacy and leadership skills of its members and winner of the 2004 APAGS/CAPP/Division 31 SPTA Award.
