CAPP Membership Benefits
WEBSITE: CAPP maintains a professional and user friendly website at cappnet.org. The website offers a very easy mechanism for consumers to search for a psychologist in the Cincinnati area by specialty area, special populations served, ages treated, psychologist practice location and languages spoken by the psychologist. Only CAPP members are listed in our online search directory. As such, it is a good resource for generating referrals. We do not list our student affiliate members in the search directory. Our website is also a go to place for registering for our continuing education events. Each CAPP member is assigned a username on our website and can manage their own public information and account settings on the site.
DIRECTORY: The paper Directory is currently published every other year and includes the names of licensed psychologists who are CAPP members, their addresses, office phone and fax numbers, and practice areas of special interest. We do not list our affiliate members in the directory. It also includes a geographic locator based on office address and a cross-reference section for specialty areas to make it a more useful guide for professionals who use it to make referrals to psychologists. In the past, the Directory has been sent to over 1900 area psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, hospitals, and attorneys. We hope that it serves as an important referral source to these professionals.
As a CAPP member, you may purchase advertisement space in our published directory.
REFERRAL SYSTEM: A referral and information service is maintained by CAPP. All CAPP members are part of this system. Referrals are made on the basis of clientele served, specialty area, and geographic area. We try to give each caller the names and office phone numbers of three different CAPP members and suggest that they call each to see who may best suit their needs. Every effort is made to rotate the names of CAPP members given to consumers.
CONTINUING EDUCATION: We offer continuing education dinner meetings and workshops at a discounted rate to CAPP members.
NETWORKING: We offer frequent opportunities to informally interact and network with fellow practicing psychologists at dinner meetings, workshops, and our social events.
MENTORING: We offer the opportunity for newly licensed psychologists to be paired with a mentor to help with the complexities of establishing a professional practice.
SPEAKERS’ BUREAU: We occasionally receive requests for speakers from schools, churches, civic organizations and businesses. If you so choose, we will put you on our list to be contacted when we receive such a request. Our policy is that CAPP members will do this as a community service and ask for no fee or honorarium. When a request is received, the CAPP administrative assistant will contact members to see who might be interested in a particular speaking engagement. If you are interested, you will be given the name and phone number of the person requesting the speaker so that you may contact them directly to work out details.
NEWSLETTER: A quarterly newsletter is published on our website and is filled with timely information on working with insurance companies, billing information, ethical dilemmas, educational opportunities, OPA news, available therapy/educational groups, and other timely tidbits.
ADVOCACY: CAPP serves as an advocacy and support system for all of its’ members to ensure an accurate and fair portrayal in the media, to guard against unethical or false practices, and to support all members in attaining fair treatment.
