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 only lecture. 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 you proposal, explain how you intend to achieve this (1, 2, 3 hours). It is important that you include new skills that can be put into practice immediately whenever possible. Each person listed as a presenter must register for the Convention. (PD eligible)
