AASP's Research Development Committee is excited to announce the launch of the AASP Research Listserv. The purpose is to provide a platform for AASP members to share research ideas and collaborate on projects. Members may log in to the Member Area and click on "Join AASP Research Listserv" under the Member Items heading to sign up.
With AASP's adoption of a new ethics policy that addresses and sanctions ethical violations by its members, the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has announced that they will accept AASP membership as one of the 3 requirements to be considered for their sport psychology registry. Applicants must have (1) a doctoral degree, (2) hold a current Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) credential and (3) membership in either AASP, APA or ACA.
The most recent development in AASP's transition to the new certification program is the new title: Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC). Applications to the new Certification Program will be accepted starting October 1, 2017, and additional Certification Program Updates can be found here.
