Congress Chair Welcome Message

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the first Australian Psychological Society Congress. The Congress represents a unique event on the psychology calendar as for the first time in our more than 50 year history, all of the Colleges, Divisions and Interest Groups of the Australian Psychological Society will come together to explore world’s best practice, to share knowledge across the entire discipline and to provide quality professional development opportunities for all delegates.

The Congress will take place in Australia’s vibrant city, Melbourne, with its cafe society, fine dining, exciting arts precincts, shopping, sports madness, and is the stepping off point to the exciting natural wonders of regional Victoria and the South Coast. The Congress comes at the end of the APS’ 50th year of celebrations and focuses on the theme of “Psychology United for the Future”. The 2016 APS Congress celebrates the unity and strength of the profession developed over the last 50 years and allows all psychologists to explore the rich psychological tapestry of Australian psychology and emerging from this, to discuss and launch into an exciting and well-informed psychological future. It is the must attend professional development event for all psychologists and for other allied professionals in 2016.

Join us for this stellar event!
