Introduction to Workshops

TPA 2020 Annual Convention - Inclusion
November 12-14, 2020
Renaissance Austin Hotel
Proposal Receipt Deadline: July 31

TPA is pleased to announce its 2020 Annual Convention Call for Proposals. TPA is now accepting proposals for workshops, posters, discussions (previously symposiums), and our new category: data blitz sessions. TPA President Dr. Megan Mooney and the TPA Convention Committee encourage submissions from all individuals in all settings representing psychology. We especially welcome submissions relating to this year’s convention theme: INCLUSION.

Workshops are programs based on teaching direct skills and practical application of theory to workshop participants. Workshops combine theoretical and experiential approaches to help participants increase their understanding and skills in a particular area of current interest in psychology. An emphasis should be placed on interactive workshops when possible rather than lecture-only. We ask that you actively engage participants in a variety of learning modes and facilitate translation of new knowledge and skills into professional practices and services. In your proposal, explain how you intend to achieve this within your proposed time (1, 2, or 3 hours). It is important that you include new skills that can be put into practice immediately whenever possible.
