Psychologists from 40 Countries Pledged to Use Their Jobs to Address Climate Change

Posted: January 5th, 2020

The leaders of psychological associations from more than 40 countries signed a proclamation this week at a conference on psychology and global health in Lisbon, pledging to use their expertise as psychologists to “take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.”

Already, psychologists have recognized that climate change is a threat to psychological health. But with this move, psychological associations from around the world are signaling a desire to actually address the problem. 

The American Psychological Association, one of the groups whose leaders signed the document, made history in 2017 by throwing its weight behind a body of research that pointed to “eco anxiety” as a legitimate affliction. That year, the APA published a 69-page report that urged broad recognition of the connection between mental health and climate change: The changing environment is a legitimate source of distress already affecting many people, the report emphasized, and it has the potential to be psychologically destabilizing.

CPA Implementing a Modest Dues Increase to Cover Rising Costs 

Posted: November 20, 2019

 

Renew by December 15 at current rate

 

CPA values every member and we recognize it’s the members that make our association strong and vibrant. We thank all members for your past support and continuing involvement with CPA into 2020.

In the past few years, to bring members the most up-to-date technology and resources, we’ve launched a new, more user-friendly website; produced webinars and events throughout the year to provide continuing education credit opportunities at discounted member rates, including the highly successful Risk Management Workshop sponsored by The Trust; host an ethics hotline to provide ethics consultation across the state and online ethics resources; and more.

A large role the Colorado Psychological Association plays on behalf of its members is advocacy both at the state legislative and federal level of government. Our dedicated lobbyists work through each legislative session to monitor bills that affect your practice and the industry as a whole. In 2018, CPA proactively ran legislation allowing Colorado to join PSYPACT, an interstate compact for psychologists which allows for greater use of tele-psychology. The passage of this law brings more access to Coloradans in need of mental health resources, particularly in rural areas. Our lobbyist has also included a mounting an effort to defeat legislation to further legitimize the practice of Registered Psychotherapists in Colorado, helping pass groundbreaking legislation to prohibit conversion therapy for minors our mental health partners to support HB 1269: Mental Health Parity, SB 010: Professional Behavioral Health Services for Schools, and HB 1244: Expand Peace Office Mental Health Support Program. The 2020 legislative session is going to be of particular importance since the legislature is reviewing the Mental Health Practice Act. CPA has already spent five months preparing for this effort, surveying members, building legislative allies, and working with other licensed mental health professionals to ensure the best possible outcome. One of our greatest priorities is making sure we have your backs when it comes to laws and regulations and protecting your interests! And we have strength in numbers thanks to you.

While we’ve done all of this, we haven’t raised member dues in more than ten years. In addition to the undertaking of new products, services and events, we have experienced increases in prices for services over the same time. After careful consideration, the board voted to implement a modest 5% dues increase across all membership levels, to maintain the financial stability of the association and continue to provide outstanding service to members. 

The average dues increase is $9. If you renew before December 15, you can renew at the current dues rate before the change takes effect. If you have any questions, please call our office and we are happy to help you and provide any information you need.
