Div. 1: Society for General Psychology is concerned with creating coherence among psychology's diverse specialties by encouraging members to incorporate multiple perspectives from psychology's subdisciplines into their research, theory, and practice. Div. 1 welcomes membership from academic scientists, professional practitioners and psychologists whose main concern is the public interest.

Division membership includes subscriptions to its quarterly journal, Review of General Psychology, and the official division newsletter, The General Psychologist, published two to three times annually.
