A Message From The CPA President
Dear CPA Member:
Happy New Year! It is time to renew your membership with the Colorado Psychological Association (CPA)! We value our members tremendously and thank you in advance for your continued support of CPA, YOUR state psychological association! Your membership empowers CPA to work on behalf of Colorado psychologists in 2016! Here are a few things we CPA members accomplished in 2015:
- CPA continued to have an active presence at our State’s capital. In 2015, we were successful in passing legislation to initiate Continuing Education for psychologists in Colorado, joining the other 47 states that maintain this standard. Currently, CPA is monitoring updates from DORA regarding the implementation of this new law and will keep our members informed!
- Committed to providing high quality educational programming to our community, CPA hosted national experts all throughout 2015, including workshops focused on topics like Risk Management in The Age of the Affordable Care Act, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, and working with Bereavement in Youth and Families.
- To better reach psychologists across all of Colorado, CPA hosted a webinar event titled, Elder Abuse: Detection, Reporting, Prevention, and Legal Solutions in July.
- The Early Career Psychologists’ (Committee) enjoyed a successful year with the continued growth of the Mentorship Program – 35 mentors/mentees were paired during 2015!
- The CPA Student Division (COPAGs) is thriving and has a new Board Leadership with student representation from UNC, DU GSPP, DU CP PhD, and CU-Denver graduate programs! In 2015, COPAGs successfully hosted an event titled, Mental (St)ealth: The Live, Love, and Creative Practices of Dylan Scholinski with over 300 attendees! The event was cosponsored with UNC’s Counseling Psychology Student Organization, CPA’s SAMD, and KUNC campus public radio!
- The CPA Ethics Committee provides free, on-call consultation services to members!
Thank you for your membership to CPA, and your continued support and commitment to the psychological profession in Colorado.
