AusAPT is an independent, non-profit organisation focused on furthering the understanding, ethical use and application of Psychological Type.
AusAPT membership opens the door to the field of Psychological Type and a global network of people interested in research and learning about the theory and applications of Type.
This network includes researchers, practitioners, authors and enthusiasts of Type from all around the world. You might be curious to learn more about Psychological Type, whatever your background or experience. Our community provides connection and information via conferences and other local events. These events feature the opportunity to engage with people with extensive experience in Psychological Type.
With a 30-year history of regular in person and online conferences as well as local events, including our upcoming in person conference in Brisbane, From Shadows to Showtime, on 1-2 September. It is just $75 for membership in 2023/4 and you receive an $80 discount on the conference as a member.
Our conference program spans a diverse range of sessions from Australian and international presenters, with new faces alongside familiar names from across the wide world of psychological type. As our keynote speakers we’re honoured to present psychologist and author Dr Angelina Bennet from the UK and the world-renowned Australian type luminary Mary McGuiness.
We also offer in person and online sessions that are free or discounted for members as well as Members Only programs such as the current Psychological Types Reading Group with Peter Geyer, custodian of the AusAPT Type Research and Practice Collection.
Membership of AusAPT can help you regularly update and refresh your knowledge of Psychological Type through exposure to local and international experts. For those interested, there is also an opportunity to share and publish your knowledge and expertise in recognised forums such as our conferences and via publication online. AusAPT conferences and local events are opportunities for members to present their own ideas and work and learn with others.
