2020 SPPAC Continuing Education
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:
- 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.
- Providing a forum for individuals at all levels, from students to established investigators and clinicians, to facilitate consultation, collaboration, and mentorship.
- Promoting the role and value of pediatric psychology in a changing healthcare environment nationally and internationally.
There are 13.25 scheduled hours of Introductory to Advanced level CEs for psychologists offered at SPPAC 2020, with additional CEs available for those who attend the preconference workshops and Lunch & Learn (up to 7.5). Sessions that have been approved to receive CE credits are marked with a CE on the conference schedule.
Documentation of attendance will be made available electronically through the SPPAC User Portal (http://convention.societyofpediatricpsychology.org/) to those individuals who met the requirements of full attendance based on scan in/out information) and timely completion of an evaluation (by April 6, 2020). Please remember: In order for SPP to maintain approval to sponsor continuing education, we cannot award credit for partial attendance at a session. Participants are responsible for ensuring they scan in and out on time for each session. Our volunteer student ambassadors make this process possible, so please be respectful of them.
Please contact Dr. Chad Jensen, SPP Member-at-Large for Continuing Education.
The Society of Pediatric Psychology (Division 54 of the American Psychological Association) is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Society of Pediatric Psychology maintains responsibility for this program and its contents.
