Women and Psychology

About Us

The goal of the Women and Psychology Interest Group is to have an active group in every State and Territory. Currently there are active groups in Victoria, NSW, SA, WA and Queensland.

Benefits of being a member

Members of the Women and Psychology Interest Group are kept informed on upcoming activities, issues and major projects through the Interest Group newsletter that is distributed two times a year (see Newsletters page).

The State branches sponsor presentations, seminars and discussions on psychological issues that affect women and girls. Some of these activities are accredited for professional development points and are also advertised in the APS State newsletters. (See Events and PD page)
