Friday, July 17th, 2020: Maria Espinola, Psy.D. “Diversity, Trauma, & Ethical Issues in Psychology” LIVE WEBINAR
July 17 @ 8:30 am - 12:45 pm$100 – $125
With the many unknowns regarding the current situation/COVID-19 virus, CAPP has made the difficult decision to move the August 14th workshop to a webinar format and to move up the date to July 17, 2020.
This webinar will be held LIVE July 17, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. We are currently researching platforms to determine which platform is most user-friendly, interactive, and best suited for this event. While this may take us a few days to pin down, we wanted to get the word out to you as soon as possible for planning purposes. As an added bonus, our speaker, Dr. Maria Espinola, is quite skilled with LIVE formats and we promise you will enjoy the presentation. If you’d like to see some of her other live presentations, you can see many of her videos on YouTube. Here’s one of many examples:
We realize that one of the many benefits of CAPP is networking with colleagues and peers. Therefore, we are saddened that we won’t be able to get together in person. Obviously, the health and welfare of attendees is our utmost concern; however, we look forward to the day that we can once again meet in person.
Thank you for your understanding and support. As soon as we have details regarding a platform and sign on procedures for July 17th, we will be in touch
