Participation Policy

2021 Annual Meeting

The American Psychiatric Association's policy is to promote an environment of mutual respect, well-being, and collegiality at its meetings. APA values and benefits from the diverse opinions its members hold on the issues with which the Association and the psychiatric profession are confronted. All individuals at the meeting agree to conduct themselves in a manner appropriate for health care professionals. This includes respect for the intellectual property of others and the avoidance of aggressive or inappropriate behavior towards others. Individuals participating in APA sponsored meetings agree to listen respectfully to all views presented, be courteous to others regardless of whether you agree or disagree with the views presented, and to exhibit the professionalism and collegiality expected of psychiatrists. Postings, messages, and any other content submitted by participants during the meeting may not contain promotional materials, advertisements, special offers, job announcements, product announcements, solicitations for service or any similar content. You may not record, broadcast or otherwise transmit in any format audio or video of any educational session, presentation, or other content of the meeting unless granted permission to do so by APA. You may not record, copy or take screen shots of any text from within the meeting virtual space (including Q&A and chat activity) unless granted permission to do so by APA. Your registration for the meeting is unique to you; you may not sell, trade, or otherwise share your personal event registration access information with any other individual. If an individual believes that these rules have been violated or acceptable social decorum has otherwise been breached, he or she shall contact APA staff to help with the situation. APA reserves the right to remove any posted content and to remove meeting access rights of any individual violating this policy and will not provide a refund. By registering for this meeting, you agree to abide by the Participation Policy as described above.
