The Council and Executive Committee of APA’s Division 56, the Division of Trauma Psychology, voted to propose 16 changes to the Division Bylaws. These changes are intended to:

  • bring the Division’s Bylaws in line with previous decisions made by the Division’s Council that had not been incorporated into the Bylaws;
  • bring the Division’s Bylaws in line with APA policies and procedures;
  • and to bring the Division’s Bylaws in line with non-profit best practices.

The proposed changes were approved by a member vote in September 2020. You can access the final version here
