SPA offers a few different opportunities for community generated content: workshops (either 4 hour or 8 hour extended learning opportunities where attendees can dive into a specific content area or program), webinars (virtual content occurring outside of the Annual Convention) or programs connected to the annual convention (both live and pre-recorded in a variety of formats). Continue reading to learn about these opportunities and make sure to submit your ideas before the stated deadlines.

Call for Programs & Papers

As we just finished out the evaluation of our papers and proposals, we have identified a few key areas where we need more content.
To round out our current program, SPA is calling for additional symposia, papers, or collected case studies that include multi-method assessment and integration of data, application of personality assessment in non-clinical settings (for example, organizational and health psychology), and topics demonstrating the utility of assessment.
This new call for papers and proposals will close on November 18, so please consider submitting a proposal today, as well as forward along this request to your colleagues proficient in these areas.

We welcome proposals that are responsive to emerging trends and the evolving challenges of psychologists and clinicians utilizing and researching assessments. Please visit the program formats page to learn more about the different proposal options, including our new Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice Track.
