Division of Academics, Researchers & Teachers in Psychology


Division of Academics, Researchers and Teachers in Psychology (DARTP) promotes the professional interests of academic psychologists.

We aim to develop psychology as a profession and as a body of knowledge and skills. We help support division members with training and advice, have regular events, and contact members with updates and news throughout the year.
