Members of the Women and Psychology Interest Group are kept informed on upcoming activities, issues and major projects through the Interest Group Upcoming Events section and email alerts.

The state groups sponsor presentations seminars and discussions on psychological issues that affect women and girls. Currently the most active groups are in Victoria, NSW and Queensland, but we'd love to assist members in other states to gather locally. Some of these activities are accredited professional development points. See Events and PD page.
