APA offers four Advanced Training Institutes for summer 2017

Intensive, five-day training programs immerse psychological scientists in state-of-the-art research methods.

The American Psychological Association will sponsor four Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) in the summer of 2017. These intensive, five-day training programs are hosted at research institutions across the country. They immerse psychological scientists — new and established faculty, postdoctoral fellows, nonacademic scientists and advanced graduate students — in state-of-the-art research methods. Participants also have the opportunity to meet and network with other scientists who have related interests.

The four ATIs are listed below. Complete information about these programs can be viewed on the Advanced Training Institute website.

Developed in response to expressed interest in these research methods, these ATIs draw many participants and consistently generate highly positive feedback.

The ATIs on structural equation modeling and big data will be held at Arizona State University in consecutive weeks. In order to help make it feasible for people to attend both of these ATIs, participants who are accepted and register for both sessions will receive a 20 percent discount on their tuition for each institute.

Tuition for each ATI ranges from $375 to $1200, with students, postdoctoral fellows and APA members paying lower tuition. Participants may also apply for financial assistance.

APA arranges for on-campus or nearby lodgings and encourages all ATI participants to stay at the same location. Prices for lodgings have been negotiated at competitive group rates.

Note that ATI application deadlines are in March and April. Applications are available at the Advanced Training Institute website and must be submitted electronically through each institute’s webpage. For more information, contact ATI or (202) 336-6000.
