Public interest and diversity
Discover how couple and family psychologists are promoting diversity and social justice
Div. 43's quarterly newsletter and journal keep members up-to-date about the division and the field.
Welcome from our President
Welcome to Div. 43 (Society of Couple and Family Psychology).
APA's Div. 43 is one of the three organizations that represent the specialty of couple and family psychology at the Council of Specialties in Professional Psychology. The mission of Division 43 is to promote people’s wellbeing through the production, publication and application of evidence-based knowledge about the influence of diverse systems (i.e., intrapersonal, relational and social) on human behaviors. We support research that advances our systemic understanding of couple and family dynamics, how they influence mental and physical health, and how they develop from broader societal processes such as gender norms and poverty. We also support specialty training and education, and disseminate critical information about couples and families through our journal Couple and Family Psychology: Research and Practice, our website, and other social media.
