The AP-LS Practice Committee strives to meet the distinct needs of forensic clinicians who are members of AP-LS. To that end, the Practice Committee is excited to announce our 2nd year of partnership with The Society for Personality Assessment (SPA), the largest organization dedicated to the advancement of the science and practice of personality assessment for the betterment of society.

This partnership affords all AP-LS members the SPA Member rate for all of their workshops, as well as the SPA Convention, which is scheduled to be in person March 9-13, in Chicago, IL at the Westin Michigan Avenue hotel. AP-LS members save on average between $30-$75 dollars on registration depending on AP-LS membership level. AP-LS members will also get access to the discounted rate at the hotel. Room reservations must be made by February 14, 2022, more information on the hotel can be found here.

The Practice Committee members, Antoinette Kavanaugh, Danielle Rynczak, Lara Guzman-Hosta, Yenys Castillo, and Rebecca Rivas have joined with Dr. Barry Rosenfield as well as Dr. Tess Neal who is a member of both organizations to bring you the session titled Can We Talk? Facilitating a Dialogue between Clinicians and Researchers on Friday, March 11, 2022, at 1:30pm.

We're also recommending the following pre- and post-convention workshops that may be of interest to our members including their featured lecture with our AP-LS Practice Committee chair, Dr. Antoinette Kavanaugh:
