MORE AND LESS EXPECTED: A conversation about careers in Psychology that are in and outside the box

  • William Pitt Union, 3959 Fifth Avenue (Oakland) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Historically, graduating with an advanced Psychology degree has suggested a specific set of professional opportunities: an academic teaching or research position or clinical psychotherapy in outpatient and inpatient settings. This event is designed to talk about the myriad of ways that Psychologists or those with an advance degree in Psychology have found meaningful career paths in both expected and unexpected ways. A panel of individuals has been invited that represent a wide variety of career paths and as always, plenty of time for questions and discussions is built into the program.  Snacks will be provided. We invite all attendees to join us afterwards for our November GPPA Social Event at Hidden Harbor in Squirrel Hill between 6-8 pm, where you will have the opportunity to network and meet with our board and other members.

PRE and POST-DOCTORAL INTERNSHIPS: A conversation about identifying, applying to, and completing the Psychology Internship processes

  • 4037 Howley Street Pittsburgh, PA 15224 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This gathering was conceived as a way to facilitate frank and useful discussion about the processes involved in finding and completing the mandatory predoctoral and post-doctoral internship experiences. Those available to speak include previous internship site-directors, current doctoral and post-doctoral interns, and early career professionals. Topics covered will include experiential accounts of these major events, tips and suggestions for navigating the application process, stories from individuals who have gone through APPIC and who have created their own internship experiences, and feedback from previous site-directors who can comment on applications and training from the training-site perspective. This will be a conversational and informal event. Dinner and refreshments (including vegan and gluten free options) will be provided.

Graduate Student and Early Career Professionals Workshop Series: Private Practice

  • Duquesne University Psychology Department (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Some of the most common questions we have received from graduate students and early career professionals are related to starting and maintaining a private practice. This forum aims to provide a comfortable and informal space to learn about experiences of local psychologists who have started individual or group practices, and for all attendees to ask any questions they may have about the process. Topics that will be covered include practical considerations (renting space, costs associated with a practice, malpractice insurance), insurance v. fee-for-service considerations, common challenges, building a clientele, and financial security. A panel of speakers with a variety of backgrounds will attend and plenty of time will be dedicated for question-and-answers. Snacks will be provided. We invite all attendees to join us afterwards for our first GPPA Social Event of the new board year at Sienna Mercato between 6-8 pm, where you will have the opportunity to spend time with our board and other GPPA members.
