The APA Continuing Education Committee (CEC) is accepting workshop proposals that represent the lifelong learning needs of the APA membership for the APA convention in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2015. During each convention, the APA CEC and the Office of Continuing Education in Psychology (CEP) offer approximately 70 workshops — half-day (four hours) and full-day (seven hours) — on a range of topics (ethics, assessment, geriatrics, psychopharmacology, trauma and marriage/family, among many others). An emphasis is placed on interactive workshops that actively engage participants with a variety of different modes of learning and that facilitate the translation of new knowledge and skills into professional practices and services. We seek new and innovative proposals each year that represent the lifelong learning needs of the APA membership and we encourage you to share your expertise with colleagues at this highly attended event.

CEC seeks proposals that:
  • Are new and innovative and represent the lifelong learning needs of the APA membership.
  • Are relevant to psychological practice, education and science.
  • Enable psychologists to keep pace with emerging issues and technologies.
  • Allow psychologists to maintain, develop and increase competencies in order to improve services to the public and enhance contributions to the profession.

The CEC is committed to gender and ethnic diversity representation among workshop presenters and all proposals should address these issues in the content and format of the workshop.
