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 MyAPA.
- The Health Psychologist is the Society’s Official Publication; it is e-published three times a year and regularly includes committee updates, current news, conference information, and clinical and research notices. The editorial staff welcomes submissions from the membership at large. Check out the latest issue here!
SfHP invites outstanding health psychologists to present at the APA Convention each year, and welcomes symposia or poster submissions from students, early career professionals, seasoned researchers, and clinicians.
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 ([email protected]). Thank you for your commitment to the Society for Health Psychology!
