    Connecticut Psychological Association
    30th Annual Convention

    October 28, 2016 at The Riverhouse, Haddam, CT

    The Connecticut Psychological Association is now accepting proposals for the Year 2016 Convention. Programs from Academicians, Clinicians, Researchers and Students are welcomed.

    Deadline: Abstracts must be postmarked by March 31, 2016

    The Convention Committee is looking forward to an exciting, high quality Conference with a multitude of activities. We will feature a well-known Keynote speaker, APA Past President, Nadine Kaslow Ph.D.  to highlight our day of diverse presenters.  The CPA Annual Convention is an opportunity to learn about your professional organization, exchange ideas, gain visibility, share successes and insights, enjoy being creative and renew professional relationships.

    TOPICS
    This year’s Convention will offer a variety of themes to address the array of interests expressed by our clinical, academic and community based colleagues. We seek to enhance the knowledge and interface of all sectors of our psychological colleagues.  Innovative approaches/interventions, research/academic questions and programs, forensic issues, integrative care models, ethnic diversity, geriatric and pediatric populations, collaboration with other professions/disciplines and neuropsychological issues are appropriate for submission.

    When submitting a proposal, please note the following:

    1. The curriculum vitae of all presenters must be included.
    2. All lead presenters need to pre-register for the Convention and pay the registration fee prior to the Convention. It is hoped that auxiliary presenters will register as well to attend the Convention.
    3. Final decisions regarding acceptance of programs, time allocated to each presentation and time of day for presentations will be made by the Convention Committee.
    4. All submissions will be acknowledged. If you do NOT receive a confirmation receipt, please contact Convention Chair at ilene4kids@aol.com.
    5. Proposal decisions will be determined by 5/1/2016.

    Given the large number of excellent proposals submitted in recent years we anticipate that not all proposals will be accepted. Proposals will be selected based on relevance to professional psychology and their “fit” with the overall program framework. Only proposals submitted before March 31, 2016 will be considered. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN PRESENTING AT THE CPA CONVENTION!

    In response to the Charleston rampage, the National Register of Health Service Psychologists has compiled a sourcebook of references on gun violence for psychologists working with individuals, policy makers, and communities affected by these tragedies. The sourcebook contains updated policy references from the American Psychological Association, American Bar Association, Department of Justice and a number of abstracts of recent publications dealing with clinical and policy responses to acts of terror. Many of these are in full text, and links to full-text resources have otherwise been provided as available.  We hope these references will be a valuable resource for psychologists working to reduce violence and ameliorate the pernicious manifestations of racism and intolerance in our country.
