Fellowship is an
honor bestowed upon Members of the American Psychological Association
who have demonstrated unusual and outstanding contributions or performance
in the field of psychology.Nominations to Initial Fellow status
are made by APA Divisions
. See the Division 56
(Trauma Psychology) web site. Go to the public
site at the APA web site for a description of the APA Fellow status.
Division Members who believe that they
have made a significant contribution to trauma psychology should consider
becoming a candidate.
If you are already an APA Fellow in another APA Division, the process is quite easy: Just complete the official Uniform Fellow Application and at the bottom note how you qualify for Division 56 Fellow status by attending to the Division Fellows criteria adopted in 2008. A copy is attached below.
If you wish to apply for APA Fellow Status in the Division and you are not currently a Fellow, also review the Division's Fellows criteria below and go here.
Fellow candidate application materials are reviewed
first by the Division Fellows Committee. If approved the Candidate's application
is forwarded to the Division's governing council. If approved, the application
goes to the APA Membership Committee, which has the responsibility of
making recommendations (based on criteria established by both the APA
and the nominating division) to the APA Board of Directors. The Board
recommends nominee election to the APA Council of Representatives, which
then elects nominees to Fellow status.
