Dear New Member:

Welcome to Division 42!  We’re delighted to have you join us.

This is an exciting time to belong to 42 as we expand our services and benefits and pursue creative ideas for practice enhancement.  Whether you’re an experienced practitioner or relatively new to independent practice, 42 offers useful tools, tips, and resources for launching, sustaining, and growing your practice – especially during challenging economic times.

To allow you to begin taking advantage of all that 42 has to offer, we recommend joining our dynamic listserv and website.

  • To join the listserv, send an email to with the subject NEW MEMBER.  Once you are added to the listserv you can post questions and comments and seek input from hundreds of colleagues across the US and Canada.  The list also is a great place to find and give collegial support and experience a true sense of community.
  • To receive website login information please contact Rick at with the subject NEW MEMBER (also, please add to the email your acknowledgment from the APA of your new membership).

Watch for our digital newsletter the Independent Practitioner – you will receive a link via email when it is available. The Independent Practitioner (IP) is another Division 42 benefit that showcases thought-provoking articles, essays, and informative skills-based articles. The IP is published four times a year.  Division 42 members are welcome to be active contributors to the IP by submitting a manuscript for review.  Once you join the website you will have access to back issues of the IP.

Another outstanding member benefit is our journal Practice Innovations. Take a sneak peak here This journal is “clinician-friendly” focusing on the enhancement of clinical practice and highlighting the possibilities of utilizing our skills sets in a variety of settings with a variety of client populations.

Division 42 also has a mentoring program, mastermind groups and virtual learning hour opportunities.

We value and appreciate every member and will continue to work hard to be your partner in practice!

Welcome to the home for practitioners!
