Travel with APA
Initiated in 2012, the APA International Learning Partner Program is designed to promote an understanding of psychology and psychological issues in countries outside the United States. The program advances these goals through international collaboration in research, education and scholarship. This program is open to psychologists and graduate psychology students who are interested in building professional collaborations with colleagues in Cuba.
