Pre-Convention PD Workshops

Pre-Convention Professional Development Workshops: 3-Hour/3-CE credit and 6-hour/6-CE credit

It is important for the educational opportunities offered by the CPA carry the maximum impact and take advantage of opportunities to provide current, evidence-based topics that are of interest to all constituencies represented by the CPA: clinicians, researchers, educators, and students.

Beginning this year, the CPA will not be accepting submissions for Pre-Convention Professional Development Workshops. Instead, our team will be actively seeking out presenters and topics for the Pre-Conference Education Day. We hope this will result in subject matter that is better connected with the needs and interests of members and attendees.

Materials will still be built on a foundation of innovation and information, with a specific focus on relevance to psychological research, teaching, learning, and practice. We are taking this new approach based on an analysis of attendance patterns for recent Pre-Conference Workshops, in response to member suggestions, and with an eye toward relevant topics of interest.

The Pre-Convention Professional Development Workshops will be built around a solid core of specific subject areas that will be available each year starting in 2024, along with a selection of relevant and timely education opportunities that will be renewed annually.

Suggestions for workshop topics are always welcome – if you have an idea for a topic you would like to see, please submit it to

Attendees will still be able to register for 3-hour and 6-hour Pre-Conference Professional Development Workshops and the full Convention program using a single transaction.
