Division 32 convention programming

Division 32 offers exciting programming options for the 2012 APA Convention; please review our forthcoming schedule for Orlando and have a great time

Two of our presentations are of historical significance—the symposium on the DSM-5 on Friday at 10 a.m. and the DSM-5 interdivisional meeting on Saturday at 10 a.m. These are the "cornerstones" of the our program, featuring notable individuals who, during the past year, have led the groundswell of concern among psychologists surrounding the proposed DSM-5. In addition to Division 32's official program, please keep in mind that we have a less formal gathering of humanistic presentations taking place at the Division 32 Hospitality Suite in the Peabody Hotel. It's a great place to relax, listen to stimulating ideas, and engage in conversation with the humanistic community.
