2017 Annual Convention

Trauma: Helping our Clients, our Communities and Ourselves

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 2-4, 2017

Marriott Schaumburg Hotel
Schaumburg, IL

You are invited to submit a proposal for the Annual Convention of the Illinois Psychological Association to be held November 2, 3, and 4, 2017. Recent events in the news serve to highlight the many traumas that have an impact on our patients and our communities, as well as on psychologists in all of the roles in which we work. We therefore invite program proposals relevant to this topic to educate and prepare psychologists to better understand trauma in all its aspects, including its impact on the treatment of adults, children and families as well its impact on our communities related to social justice issues, the political climate and diversity issues. We also encourage submissions that address the effects on clinicians, those who work in communities and first responders. Finally program proposals relevant to the changing healthcare climate would give further context to this import and relevant topic.
