The enormous APA convention is not often the first conference that personality and social psychologists think about when they strategize about where to present their research. There is a perception that only practicing clinicians attend APA. While it’s true that the crowd is heavily clinical, there is also lots of great personality and social psychology that takes place as well. At the 2014 convention, our division put on talks by Jamie Pennebaker, Wendy Wood, Phillip Zimbardo, Rebecca Shiner, Brian Nosek, Keith Humphreys, and many others. There were symposia on implicit attitudes, emotion regulation, climate change, and personality development.
