About Us

The Division on Adult Development and Aging (Division 20) of the APA strives to advance the study of psychological development and change throughout the adult years. We invite membership from psychologists who provide services to older adults, conduct research on adult development and aging, or are interested in learning more about or teaching life span development and aging. The division has a strong mentorship focus; we invite and encourage participation from students and emerging professionals who share our interests.

Division 20 offers several publications to members, including the newsletter Adult Development and Aging News, and the Guide to Graduate Study in the Psychology of Adult Development and Aging.
