Welcome to PsycIQ, the APA Member Center
Monitor on Psychology
APA’s exclusive membership magazine featuring news and trends in psychology. A must-read for psychology educators, scientists and practitioners.
APA Fellow Mary Karapetian Alvord, PhD, is an established authority on resilience, which she defines as "the ability to cope with challenges." Social competence and self-regulation are two key components of resilience, according to Alvord, which people can learn over time but it takes effort.
"The analogy I use is learning a musical instrument," Alvord says. "You can learn about how to do it, but unless you actually practice, you're not going to get any better."

Why I'm an APA Member
Being a member of APA is invaluable to my teaching. Attending conferences and reading their publications allows me to keep my classroom lectures, activities, and assignments current.
By becoming a member of APA I have been exposed to a variety of research areas I would have otherwise never experienced.
