Abstract

This initial pilot survey was designed to examine the degree to which a random sample of the 1984 American Psychological Association (APA) membership agreed or disagreed with the organization's involvement in societal or professional issues. In general, the data suggest that respondents supported APA's involvement in both types of issues. However, an analysis showed that the members who responded (or 38% of the sample) supported APA's involvement in professional issues significantly more than they supported involvement in social issues, independent of whether involvement meant simple advocacy or included resource expenditure.
