SAMD EVENT: "Toward Right Relationship with Native People”

Posted: March 21, 2019

Date: Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Parkhill United Methodist Church, 5209 Montview Blvd, Denver (NW corner of intersection at Montview and Glencoe)

This event is a monthly group conversation/workshop for individuals interested in participating in an open discussion of inter-racial issues.  There is an emphasis on current events within a historical context and how issues of race, ethnicity, gender and other aspects of our identity interact with the cultural communities in which we live. Ever respectful of differing opinions, participants are encouraged to discuss racial/cultural issues in an inclusive, nonjudgmental way. The activity for the April meeting as described by Boulder Friends is:

"An experiential workshop tracing the historic and ongoing impacts of the Doctrine of Discovery, the 15th-century justification for European subjugation of non-Christian peoples. Our goal is to raise our level of knowledge and concern about these impacts, recognize them in ourselves and our institutions, and explore how we can begin to take actions toward right relationship with Native peoples."

For those interested in attending this event, we ask you to come to the Omonoia Greek Bakery (free coffee or tea to the first 10 arriving) to meet with other members of the CPA community  attending this event.  If unable to attend the pre-event meeting, please join us at Parkhill United Methodist Church.  All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.

APA’s Testing Code Advocacy

Posted: March 26, 2019

APA has heard from many psychologists experiencing issues with reimbursement for psychological and neuropsychological testing using the new CPT codes that went into effect on January 1, 2019. APA is fighting for psychologists for timely and proper payment. They are collecting information about which companies/payers are not paying, paying very low rates, or otherwise creating claims reimbursement problems. 

APA is proactively contacting insurance companies to help educate them on applying the new testing codes correctly to pay psychologists. Current reports indicate Medicare should be operational, but there are reported problems with 15 states’ Medicaid plans and several commercial payers. Reports across the country indicate that many commercial insurers have been starting to process and pay claims.

Help APA collect data by participating in a survey to assess how the new psychological and neuropsychological testing codes are working. Please complete the survey by clicking on this link. 

 

Seeking Comments on Draft of the APA Guidelines for Psychological Practice for People with Low-Income and Economic Marginalization

The American Psychological Association seeks comments from all interested individuals and groups – including psychologists, healthcare professionals, researchers, APA governance members, and the general public on the draft of the Guidelines for Psychological Practice for People with Low-Income and Economic Marginalization.

The Guidelines are divided into four major domains: Training and Education, Low-Income and Economically Marginalized and Health Disparities, Treatment Considerations, Intersection of Low-Income and Economically Marginalized with Career Concerns and Unemployment.

We are seeking feedback on the content of the rationale and applications sections of each guideline.  In addition, we are seeking overall feedback on the readability of the entire document.

This draft was developed by an APA guidelines development task force. Your comments will provide valuable input to the task force as it works to produce the final version of the guidelines.

Comments must be submitted by midnight, April 23, 2019, Eastern Time.

Please submit comments and review the guidelines here: http://apacustomout.apa.org/commentPracGuidelines/Comment.aspx?siteCode=6

 

SAMD EVENT: The History of Psychology and Religion 

Posted: March 21, 2019

Date:
Wednesday, May 29, 2019
Time: 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Location: Ross-Cherry Creek Library; 305 Milwaukee Street, Denver 80206

Please join us for a presentation and panel discussion regarding the ways in which religion/faith and psychology are integrated to provide support to many in our client populations.  We as clinicians see individuals who look for solace from both the religious and mental health communities and as such, we have a professional responsibility to expand our knowledge and understanding of the roles both we as mental health professional and faith leaders play in supporting the wellbeing of our clients. All who are interested are welcome! Light refreshments will be served. 

Our panel will be comprised of religious representatives of Judaism, Islam, and both Eastern and Western Christianity. Areas of discussion will include such questions as: How do we see religion and psychology related to each other? What role do we play in our communities? Why and when do people turn to religion? Do you believe it is appropriate for mental health providers to discuss religious/faith issues with clients? Under what circumstance would it be appropriate for a mental health provider to reach out to a religious leader?  These are just a few of the questions open for discussion and are by no means exhaustive. Please join us with your own questions and ideas. Our program will be moderated in part by Klarissa Garcia Orellana and Danielle Xanthos both doctoral students at Denver University Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP) and members of the Colorado Psychological Association of Graduate Students (COPAG).


If you plan to attend, please RSVP: Reine Evereteze, Psy.D. (SAMD Chair) at 303-202-6143 x 5 or email: [email protected] by no later than Wednesday, May 22nd.

The American Psychological Association offers this webinar to help all psychology graduate students, in particular those affected by Argosy’s closure. This webinar will help you consider your options and how to plan your next steps with eyes wide open. While APA does not rank schools, nor can it provide explicit guidance in individual circumstances, we present this information in the hope that students will evaluate each of their options carefully, whether they were provided by Argosy or sought out independently. 

The webinar will feature Dr. Garth A. Fowler, the Associate Executive Director of APA’s Graduate Psychology Education and Training. Dr. Fowler will walk you through some tools to help you think about the best transfer programs for you. The webinar will be hosted by Dr. Eddy Ameen, Associate Executive Director of APA's Early Career and Graduate Student Affairs. Dr. Ameen will provide some introductory updates about APA's efforts to support members of the AU community and remind attendees about the updated resources at www.apa.org/apags/argosy. An extensive Q&A will follow.  

A recording of this webinar will be available to all who register, and the above registration link will also provide access to the recording after it airs.
