Andrew Craig, PhD, elected president of American Psychological Association’s Behavior Analysis Division

Andrew Craig, PhD, assistant professor of pediatrics, behavior analysis studies, and neuroscience and physiology at Upstate Medical University, has been elected president of the American Psychological Association’s Division 25 (Behavior Analysis). His four-year term will begin in January 2025 and will include service as president-elect, president and past-president.

Craig, who joined the Upstate faculty in 2019, also serves as director for research at the Golisano Center for Special Needs, a multidisciplinary clinic that provides comprehensive services for pediatric populations with specialized needs such as IDD, developmental delays, and physical disabilities.

Craig’s research is aimed at developing more efficient and effective strategies to treat substance use disorders and other behaviors of concern.

The American Psychological Association’s Division 25 promotes basic research in the experimental analysis of behavior, encourages the application of the results of such research to address socially important issues, and cooperates with other disciplines whose interests overlap with those of the division. It publishes the Division 25 Recorder, a newsletter distributed two times a year to all division members and affiliates. The division participates in the APA annual convention, sponsoring individual speakers, symposia, and special events, such as receptions and an annual dinner.
