AzPA offers many opportunities for student involvement. In addition to sponsoring a poster session at our annual convention, we actively recruit student representatives from Arizona universities for the Academic & Student Affairs Committee. The chair of this committee serves as the Graduate Student Representative to the Governing Council, encouraging a student voice be included in the leadership of the association. We also have graduate student members volunteer on other committees, providing them with hands-on opportunities to get involved with issues of special interest and to receive mentorship from psychologists in those areas.
The Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners is the licensing body for psychologists in Arizona. You can visit its website at http://psychboard.az.gov/, to learn more about the application process, supervision requirements, and testing.
The Arizona Psychology Training Consortium is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit subsidiary corporation of the Arizona Psychological Association (AzPA). The Consortium was created by the Arizona Psychological Association to develop predoctoral internship and postdoctoral residency training opportunities in the state. The Consortium brings together the resources of academic departments, community agencies, and independent practitioners to provide organized and sequential training for interns and residents. There are rural and urban training sites that reflect a breadth of client populations and intervention modalities. The Consortium provides intensive training in culturally responsive clinical practice.
AzPA students are invited to participate in the following at the AzPA Annual Convention.
