AP-LS Pre-Conference Workshops 2015
On Wednesday March 18th the American Psychology-Law Society (AP-LS; Division 41, American Psychological Association) will be holding a day of pre-conference CE workshops at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego and we would love for you to join us. A total of 4 full-day and 2 half-day workshops will be presented by experts in the field. Workshops fill up fast so register today!
The AP-LS Annual Meeting is being held from March 19th-21st at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego. This meeting provides an invigorating glimpse of new developments in research, law and policy across a broad array of topics (e.g., forensic assessment, children and the law, jury decision-making, victims and trauma). Students and young professionals can network with those who have made distinguished contributions; practitioners can keep abreast of the latest clinical and legal advances; and all can enjoy a conference and social program tailored to their interests. Please consider joining one of our committees to keep AP-LS responsive to members’ professional needs, as well as pressing social problems. We hope to see you there!
