Annual Convention & Fall/Winter Workshop

The Convention & Continuing Education Committee members believe that maintaining high standards in professional development requires a keen blending of topics from our science and practice, as well as insight into psychologists’ changing roles. We accomplish these continuing professional development goals within LPA through many ways including our annual conference and Fall/Winter Workshop. Our annual conference is a two-day event typically scheduled in the Spring and our Fall/Winter workshop is a one day event on a particular specialty or emerging area in the field. Please see our previous CE events page for past professional meetings and contact Dr. Julie Nelson, Convention & Continuing Education Committee chair for questions or if you would like to become an event sponsor. Additionally, LPA often records its educational events. These tapes are available as home study for members by contacting Dr. Nelson.

Join with us to enjoy a variety of training sessions, presented by local and national experts, that span assessment, psychotherapy, and innovations in psychological theory & practice. We include critical topics in neuropsychology, psychopathy, suicide risk assessment, psychotherapy, nutritional mental health, organizational development, health disparity, rural health, and legal and ethical issues, and many more.

Enjoy one of the highest rated events, the popular “Lunch & Learn” experiential training with colleagues. Have breakfast and lunch on us during the community Poster Session and Science Café.

Explore with us how today’s psychologists make a difference and all the ways professional psychology, with our rigorous, scientific training and extensive knowledge, can make a more meaningful impact on others and our communities.

One of our former convention keynote speakers, Scott O. Lilienfeld, wrote: “…professional organizations must continually underscore the point that trained psychologists are virtually unparalleled among rival professions in one crucial respect: our ability to apply scientific reasoning and rigorous methodology to assessing, evaluating, and alleviating human problems, whether they be mental health difficulties, such as depression or anxiety disorders, or broader societal difficulties, such as prejudice or blind obedience.”
