Continuing Education

The Division of Psychoanalysis is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. Division 39 maintains responsibility for these programs and their content.

CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR NON-PSYCHOLOGISTS

Division 39 is approved as a continuing education provider for licensed master social workers and licensed clinical social workers in the state of New York. Otherwise, participants from professions other than psychology should consult with their respective licensing boards regarding the acceptance of American Psychological Association- approved Certificates of Attendance as documentation of continuing education.

AMOUNT OF CONTINUING EDUCATION AVAILABLE

For programs sixty minutes in duration or longer, one credit is awarded for each hour of CE activity, with additional quarter-increments of CE credit awarded beyond one hour; for example, attending a one-hour-and-forty-five-minute program will yield 1.75 CE credits. 50-minute programs are not available for CE credit.

Participants have the ability to accrue up to 21 CE Credits by attending programming throughout Thursday to Saturday. For all CE-eligible programs, there is no partial credit for attending only a portion of an eligible program.

DESCRIPTION OF WORKSHOPS

CE-eligible programs (title, presenter(s), learning objectives, instructional level) can be found in the program tab of this website. This will be the most complete source of information about CE-eligible programs, and participants are encouraged to check this site regularly for updates and/or additional information when making decisions about attending the Wednesday Master Classes and/or Spring Meeting programs offered from Thursday to Saturday.

 

CE Information for PreRegistration 2018

The Division of Psychoanalysis is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor continuing education (CE) for psychologists. Division 39 maintains responsibility for these programs and their content. Wednesday Master Classes and Spring Meeting programs are open to all mental health professionals, and participants may receive CE credit for attending these programs. Participants from professions other than psychology should consult with their respective licensing boards regarding the acceptance of APA-approved Certificates of Attendance as documentation of CE. For programs sixty minutes in duration or longer, one credit is awarded for each hour of CE activity, with additional quarter-increments of CE credit awarded beyond one hour; for example, attending a one-hour-and-fifty-minute program will yield 1.75 CE credits. 50-minute programs are not available for CE credit.

Wednesday Master Classes require registration separate from general registration for the Spring Meeting and are offered for additional fees. At the conclusion of Master Classes, participants will receive a paper certificate of attendance upon completing a paper evaluation form.

Each CE-eligible Spring Meeting program is identified by a letter/number code (e.g. TH-1, FR-3, SA-5, SU-2) indicating the day of the presentation and its order in that day’s schedule. For all CE-eligible programs, there is no partial credit for attending only a portion of an eligible program. Attendance of CE-eligible Spring Meeting programs will be confirmed using a scanning system. Participants will be required to have the barcode on their badges scanned both at the start of the program session and as they leave at the conclusion of the session. To receive a Certificate of Attendance for any CE-eligible program, it is necessary to (1) register for the Spring Meeting, (2) attend the entire program, and (3) submit evaluations of each program through Express Evaluations, the Division’s online evaluation and certificate service. Please note our transition away from paper evaluations to online evaluations! Instructions about using Express Evaluations or any additional procedures will be available at the Registration Desk during the conference.

Division 39 is committed to accessibility and non-discrimination in its CE activities and will conduct these in conformity with the American Psychological Association/s Ethical Principles for Psychologists. Presenters of CE-eligible programs will address, whether during the program or via a list of references, the utility of the presentation content and the basis for their statements about this utility as well as the limitations and risks (common and most severe) associated with the program content. Presenters and participants are asked to honor the need for privacy and confidentiality throughout these programs. If program content becomes emotionally distressing, participants are encouraged to process these feelings during discussion periods. If participants have special needs, we will make reasonable attempts to accommodate them. Please contact Natalie Shear (natalielewis@natalieshear.com) with requests for accommodation. Please contact Benjamin Rubin (Chair of Division 39’s Continuing Education Committee) at div39ce@gmail.com for additional information about presenters, questions and/or complaints.
