President's message

As president of APA's Div. 43, I think the most crucial aspect of my role is to support the health and longevity of the couples and family specialty area. Given that, the Div. 43 board must make decisions and start programs that will increase the likelihood of new psychologists learning best practices in treating couples and families. One way to support acquiring and maintaining couples and family psychology knowledge is through continuing education (CE). My mission as president is to establish an asynchronous CE platform that will allow Div. 43 members and non-members to learn from the leaders in our specialty.
