2020 SPPAC Continuing Education

Continuing Education

Conference Objectives

The SPPAC aims to advance SPP’s mission to promote the health and psychological well-being of children, youth and their families through science and an evidence-based approach to practice, education, training, advocacy, and consultation by:

  1. Advancing the science of pediatric psychology and related fields through dissemination of cutting edge research; promotion of research that is culturally, ethically and developmentally sensitive and includes diverse populations; and education on evidence-based assessment, intervention, and emerging areas of research, clinical care, and policy.
  2. Providing a forum for individuals at all levels, from students to established investigators and clinicians, to facilitate consultation, collaboration, and mentorship.
  3. Promoting the role and value of pediatric psychology in a changing healthcare environment nationally and internationally.

CEs available:

We are in the process of revising CE documentation based on changes made during the transition to the virtual format (modified learning objectives, changes in content, etc).  We are planning to offer approximately 10.5 CEs, pending APA final approval! APA has been understanding and helpful to us through this process; we just need to follow the correct procedures to avoid any hangups.  There will be no CEs associated with poster sessions since they transitioned to Twitter sessions (but the new format will be fun!).  We will announce when all continuing education is finalized.

Documenting attendance:

Documentation of attendance will be made available electronically through the SPPAC User Portal (http://convention.societyofpediatricpsychology.org/), and more information will be available soon regarding this process. 


Please contact Dr. Chad Jensen, SPP Member-at-Large for Continuing Education.
