Illuminating Intersectionality – The World Within the Individual and the Individual within the World: Interconnected Identities in Science and Practice

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 14 – 16, 2019
Doubletree by Hilton-Lisle
Naperville, IL

Proposals are invited that address the broad  theme of intersectionality or the complex multidimensional lens of interconnectedness as individuals within societies. Our identities are shaped by intersectional bonds of gender, class, ethnicity, residence, lifestyles, perceptions of positive or traumatic memories, parenting, childhoods, education, work, family…the list itself is extensive.  The term “Intersectionality” reflecting multiculturalism, diversity, inclusion, or cultural competence was coined in 1989 by Kimberlé Crenshaw, a civil rights activist and legal scholar and published in a paper for the University of Chicago Legal Forum. It has since morphed into its present concept of multidimensional connectivity. Please ensure your proposals are complete and submit on the downloadable form below.

Thank you,

Program Committee Chair and IPA President-Elect

2019 Convention Sponsorship Opportunities

We anticipate that approximately 300 psychologists and psychology graduate students will attend this year’s convention. Additionally, we host an Annual Luncheon which will be held on Friday, November 15th. During this event, awards will be given to prominent figures in government, the media, business, and psychological practice.

Our convention offers a variety of ways to advertise your product to psychologists. They include:

  1. Exhibiting at the convention
  2. Placing an ad in the convention brochure
  3. Sponsoring a refreshment break
  4. Placing a stuffer ad in the convention portfolio

Psychologists are interested in products for their practice, but they are also academics and business owners. They want to know about health, life, and liability insurances, billing, legal services, psychological test material, office supplies, computer products, books, office space, inpatient hospital and outpatient treatment programs, and investment information (and this is not an exhaustive list).

Please consider showcasing your products with us. For questions regarding sponsorship, contact Marsha Karey at 312-372-7610 x201

Risk Management Workshop, Sequence IX: Complex Clinical Conundrums: Ethics & Risk Management

Presenter: Amanda D. Zelechoski, PhD., JD
9am-4:30pm

For almost 25 years, The Trust has been providing continuing education workshops and individual consultations, with a focus on improving psychologists’ risk management skills and strategies. These workshops have evolved from basic concepts and strategies, to a more applied, integrated, and strategic approach to help you protect yourself fromadverse disciplinary and legal actions.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Program reviewed data from 70,000 consultations provided to date in order to determine which issues and questions are most pressing for today’s psychologists. Topics will include boundaries and multiple relationships, challenging terminations, working with children in the midst of family
conflict, coping with disciplinary complaints, psychotherapy patient requests for legally-related documentation, and, time permitting, working with clients in other jurisdictions.
