Welcome to the Society for Health Psychology!
As a new member of the Society for Health Psychology (American Psychological Association Div 38), you will be automatically enrolled on our main listservs (div38 and div38INFO). Also, if you are a student, you will be enrolled on the Society’s student listserv (div38stu).
You’ll receive a monthly message from our SfHP President (Update for 38!), notices of jobs and internships, and announcements of special events. A number of other topic-oriented listservs are available here). As a member, you are free to sign up for additional listservs, raise questions, and benefit from the support and experience of your SfHP colleagues.
As a Society for Health Psychology member, you’ll receive two division publications:
Health Psychology is the official journal, published jointly with APA. Now published monthly, Health Psychology includes empirical investigations and reviews on a wide variety of basic and applied aspects of health and behavior, as well as special topic-oriented issues and several ongoing series (e.g., health disparities). The electronic version of the journal will be available to you by logging into your account at http://my.apa.org
The Health Psychologist is the Society’s newsletter; it is e-published three times a year. The newsletter regularly includes committee updates, current news, conference information, and clinical and research notices. The editorial staff welcomes submissions from the membership at large. You can find back issues online at: https://div38healthpsychologist.com/.
SfHP invites outstanding health psychologists to present at the APA Convention each year (read more about SfHP’s involvement in the annual convention here), and welcomes symposia or poster submissions from students, early career professionals, seasoned researchers, and clinicians.
Please take a look around and explore your interests! SfHP has many opportunities for involvement in leadership through diverse Councils and Committees.
Take advantage of our professional networking program, Health Psych Connections, which offers short-term mentoring for our members.
If you have questions, concerns, or if we can serve you better – please let us know. You may contact our Division Administrator at any time (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for your commitment to the Society for Health Psychology!
