Make the most of your CPA membership and the Colorado psychological community by contacting Nathaan Demers, the CPA programming chair to set-up a happy hour, informal research discussion, and/or other professional events. Nathaan and the programming committee are happy to brainstorm with you and work to create an event that keep you and the CPA community personally and professionally sharp, connected, and refreshed.

ACCA is an advisory committee to BPA whose mission includes:

  1. Recognizing and investigating the unique occupational vulnerabilities of psychologists and their need for colleague assistance to promote effective coping strategies, wellness, prevention, and the self-care that is ethically required,

  3. Developing proper, informed relationships between state ethics committees, boards of examiners, and colleague assistance programs for the benefit of the professional and the public. 

Participation in ACCA requires a significant time commitment including one meeting per year in Washington, DC, work on individual projects, virtual meetings and conference calls.

There are two (2) seats available on ACCA for a three-year term beginning in January 2019. ACCA will review materials and forward its recommendations to BPA for its review and approval.

ACCA is particularly interested in applicants sharing their personal/professional qualification experiences with qualitative research/data translated into the professional wellness or in another particular area; articles focused on self-care and resilience area(s); any experiences or interest in social media and development of web content; as well as your own personal-professional self-care journey. Both BPA and ACCA seek candidates who will enhance the diversity of the advisory committee while also being mindful of the need for varied geographic representation as well.

APA Appoints Task Force To Study Accrediting Master's Programs

Posted: September 24, 2018

Group to make recommendations to governing Council of Representatives

The American Psychological Association has appointed a task force to develop a blueprint for the association to accredit master’s programs in health service psychology.

“Given the increasing number of states that are licensing psychology providers at the master’s level, the association decided it makes sense for APA to create a roadmap to add master’s programs to its accreditation portfolio,” said James Lichtenberg, PhD, professor emeritus in counseling psychology at the University of Kansas. “APA has long been the recognized leader in accrediting doctoral programs in psychology so it makes sense for the association to apply its expertise to master’s-level programs.”
