We are looking forward to an exciting, high-quality Conference with a multitude of activities. This year’s Convention will focus on
issues related to psychological practice and intervention.  Programs from Academicians, Clinicians, Researchers and Students are welcomed.

There will be a variety of themes and learning opportunities to address these interests with clinical, academic, and community-based colleagues encouraged to present. All submissions are welcomed to include issues related to diversity, treatment and intervention approaches broad to specific, research/academic questions, integrative care models, population health, forensic & neuropsychological issues, professional responsibilities, ethics and much more.

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.

CPA demonstrates our commitment to educating the psychology community about matters of equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging.  We are proud to offer Diversity Track Programming throughout Convention.  Our esteemed colleagues will present thought provoking work and research and will engage in critical dialogues around issues of race, social justice, neurodiversity, gender identity, disability, allyship, and more.  Professionals of color are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.
