Info for new members

Membership is open to people who are active in the area of psychological research in adolescence. Their activity must be evident through their contribution to the study of adolescence, for example, in publications, in contributions to international conferences, or by some other means which can be appraised by the committee. Students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate study qualify for Student membership.

There are three membership categories:

  1. Full members: Those who have obtained a doctoral degree or comparable qualification and who work in a European setting- academic or otherwise- which is involved with adolescent research.
  2. Associate members: Those who have obtained a doctoral degree or comparable qualification and are engaged in psychological research with adolescents in a setting outside Europe. These members have no vote in issues concerning the Association.
  3. Student members: Those who are currently working on pre-doctorate levels and whose research interests include adolescence. Such members have no vote in issues concerning the Association and its policy but are entitled to all other provisions of the Association.
