The APS connects journalists everyday with APS psychologists who are experienced in media relations. The media referral service features more than 200 APS psychologists from universities, government and non-government agencies, consulting firms, and private practices. These psychologists add psychological insight into popular culture and trends, and provide psychological expertise on human behaviour and relationships, as gained from evidence-based research and people's experiences.
