Institutes Description

As part of their inaugural conference, APA Division 12 is excited to announce a pre-convention day focused on professional development and mentorship for early career (up to 10 years post-graduation) and mid-career (11-20 years post-graduation) professionals. This pre-convention day will take place on the day before the conference (Thursday, February 1st, 2024) from approximately 8:30am-4:30pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of programing applicable to clinical psychologists of diverse backgrounds and practices.

In line with the conference's focus on the future of clinical psychology, the institutes are tailored to helping early-career psychologists deepen their clinical skills to set themselves up for professional success and assisting mid-career psychologists in enhancing their leadership skills to maximize their impact on supporting the field in successfully navigating the myriad challenges it faces.

Morning sessions will feature mentorship activities, followed by a lunch mixer, and workshops in the afternoon.
