Can’t access premium content on the new APA Practice website?

It may be because you haven’t yet upgraded your password to comply with APA’s increased security

February 28, 2010 — The new APA Practice Organization website, Practice Central offers practicing psychologists access to a wide variety of information, resources and products. The annual Practice Assessment paid by practitioner members of the American Psychological Association (APA) provides funds that support this new site, as well as the many other services and activities of APAPO that advance and protect the practice of psychology.

Among the benefits of paying the Practice Assessment, members can access restricted, premium content at Practice Central that is not available to other site visitors. As soon as you log in to “MyAPA”, either through the main APA site or at Practice Central, the system recognizes you as a member who is eligible to view all content.  Those visitors who do not have access to premium content on the site will receive a message explaining that the premium content is available to APA members who have paid the Practice Assessment for the current year and directing them to further information about the Practice Assessment.

If you are a 2010 Practice Assessment payer and you are unable to access the premium content on Practice Central, it may be because you haven’t yet upgraded your password to comply with APA’s increased security.

To upgrade your APA password, login to MyAPA and then click on "Upgrade my Password Now.”
