Marriott Schaumburg Hotel
You are invited to submit a proposal for the 2018 Annual Convention of the Illinois Psychological Association to be held October 25-27, 2018. Psychologists are now taking advantage of technology to improve their practices. They are also looking for innovative practice tools, ways to make an impact on social issues, and ways to advance their careers. We therefore invite program proposals relevant to these topics that educate and prepare psychologists to streamline their practices, improve the treatment of adults, children and families, serve the community, and promote diversity. Please ensure that your proposal is complete. Incomplete proposals will not be considered.
