The APS Congress is a major showcase for Psychology in Australia. The first congress held in 2016 "Psychology United for the Future" was a show of unity and strength of the profession celebrating growth of all the constituent sectors of psychology within Australia over the last 50 years. The congress program contained rich content, developed in collaboration with the Colleges, Divisions and Interest Groups of the Australian Psychological Society and we look forward to bringing you an equally exciting program in 2018.
Since the APS has aligned its continuing professional development (CPD) requirements wuth the mandatory CPD requirements sets down by the Psychologists Board of Australia (PsyBA), members are responsible for making their own decisions as to which sessions attended at the APS Congress conform to the PsyBA's CPD requirements.
Members are also responsible for keeping their own record of which congress sessions they have attended, the number of hours and type of CPD activity. This can most easily be achieved by marking the sessions in which you have participated on your congress program so that you can enter the relevant details into the APS CPD logging system. Delegates who attend the entire congress can accumulate approximately 24.5 CPD hours.
More information about the APS CPD requirements is available on the APS website.
