APA 2022 Conference Highlights

Updated: Aug 10

We loved every moment of APA 2022, and it was so special for the division to gather together in person again and see faces that were both familiar and new. You can check out some of the highlights of this year's convention here!


We started out with a symposium entitled "Recent Theoretical Advances in the Psychology of Men and Masculinities," featuring contributions by Drs. Ronald Levant, Joel Wong, Shu-Yi Wang, and Ethan Hoffman and Ginelle Wolfe, M.A.


Next up we had a talk entitled, "Boys in School: Strengths, Challenges, and Solutions," by Drs. Andrew Smiler, Saed Hill, and Christopher Reigeluth and Shawna Pryor, M.A.

Next up we had our Division's poster session. We loved seeing our in-person attendees present their research and educate others on their work within the field of men and masculinities!

And a special congrats to Jessalyn Ellis and co-author Chance Dow who won the APA 2022 "People's Choice Award" for their poster, "'Real men' don’t wear condoms? The effects of threatened masculinity on the discounting of safe sex," which comes with a $250 prize. We're so proud of their hard work and for representing the division!


We kicked off day 2 with a Critical Conversation entitled, "Social Relationships Among Diverse Masculine Groups," presented by Kevin Ramseur II, M.A., M.S., and Dr. Kris Gebhard.


Our second talk on Friday morning, "Preventing Male Suicide: Five Things to Know and Do," by Drs. Fredric Rabinowitz, Christopher Reigeluth, Silvia Canetto, Andrew Smiler, and Jonathan Davies was a huge hit! Check out some of it's highlights (including a musical performance!) below:


Friday afternoon's talk, "This is Not Your Father's Fatherhood," by Drs. Brian Cole, Sonia Molloy, and Daniel Singley and Alyssa Dye, M.A. was well-attended and a huge success. Check out highlights here!


One of the things that makes our division so special is the sense of connection, openness, and laughter that its members share. Our social hour and annual division dinner were both a ton of fun, and we were so glad we could share these experiences with each other in person once again.


Saturday morning's critical conversation, "The White Elephant in the Room: White Men and Guns," presented by Dr. Christopher Liang and Sara Beachy, M.S., drew in a huge crowd! You can catch some highlights here:



And a big round of applause for this year's convention co-chairs, Pierre Azzam, M.D., and Callie Mims, B.S., B.A.


Thanks everyone for engaging with our programming - We'll see you next year in Washington D.C.!
