Discounted student registration (no CE)

GPPA in partnership with Chatham University Psychology Continuing Education offered a variety of educational programming events (with up to 7 CE credits available) as well as activities and events that promoted well-being at Chatham University’s beautiful Eden Hall Campus. The focus on safety, both physical and psychological, was the uniting theme that linked our presentations on inclusion and diversity, supervision, neuropsychology and mindfulness, feminist psychology, ethics, and suicide prevention. Practitioners who sought mandatory credits for coursework in supervision, ethics, and suicide prevention were able to fulfill these requirements.
