Why I'm an APA Member

Kristin Weber, Student Affiliate
Membership in APA is important to me as a clinician. Access to the latest research is essential for clinical practice. Not only does APA offer resources to enhance clinical care, they also serve to advocate for the profession and those who struggle with mental health concerns.
—Kristin Weber, Student Affiliate
Sharon Malinowski, Student Affiliate
Since joining APA, I have been given opportunities to be a part of division leadership, advocacy events, professional presentations and mentoring. APA membership has assisted in the development of my professional identity and conceptualization of the discipline of psychology.
