The Latest News From the American Psychological Association

On Jan. 13, 2023, the American Psychological Association (APA) reported the results of research finding that “[t]he stress of following daily political news can negatively affect people’s mental health and well-being, but disengaging has ramifications, too. … There are strategies that can help people manage those negative emotions—such as distracting oneself from political news—but those same strategies also reduce people’s drive to act on political causes they care about. …”

On Dec. 22, 2022, APA shared research on gender bias that found, “Men are less likely to seek careers in early education and some other fields traditionally associated with women because of male gender bias in those fields. … Bias against men in health care, early education and domestic (HEED) fields has been documented in prior research, and the current study sought to gauge the impact of that bias.”

On Dec. 8, 2022, APA reacted to Congress passing the Respect for Marriage Act, with the association’s president Frank C. Worrell saying, “The American Psychological Association is gratified that Congress has passed a bill that will codify marriage equality for all Americans, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or race. … APA has long been a strong advocate for marriage equality, based on the psychological research indicating that marriage provides substantial psychological and physical health benefits due to the moral, economic and social support extended to married couples. Conversely, empirical evidence has illustrated the harmful psychological effect of policies restricting marriage rights, particularly for same-sex couples.”
