The Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) promotes the professional interests of occupational psychologists.

We aim to develop psychology as a profession and as a body of knowledge and skills.

We support our members by providing training and advice, by holding regular events, and by keeping members up to date with the latest divisional news.

Message from Dr. Roxane L. Gervais, Division of Occupational Psychology Chair 2015-17

Welcome to the DOP’s website. As the current Chair of the Division, it gives me great pleasure to greet you as you choose to find out a bit more about your Division. If you are not a member and accessed the website to get more information about the Division, I hope that you have found it of interest. Over the past year, we have published the DOP’s strategic plan for 2016 - 2020, which we posted to you and which you can download from the website. We have run a members’ career survey and will provide you with the results in due course; and have organised various activities to enhance your CPD or learning in general. We continue to collaborate with the other member networks of the Society. This involves, for example, having a joint leadership development programme (LDP) with the Division of Counselling Psychology. Further, we have been developing links with external bodies in order to enhance the discipline of occupational psychology at a national and an international level. Some of the associations with which we are forging links include the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology (EAOHP), the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), and the Society of Occupational Medicine (SOM). As the Division depends on volunteers to promote our speciality, I hope you will consider becoming involved when you have some time. You can contact me on [email protected]
