This year’s convention will address multiple areas of interpersonal violence, including the lasting impact of these experiences on the attainment of developmental stages, positive interpersonal relationships and healthy coping skills. Areas that will be addressed include child abuse, domestic violence, intimate partner abuse, school violence including bullying, workplace violence, elder abuse, and abuse of the disabled and sexual abuse across the lifespan.
The goal is to establish strategies to help our communities move from cultures of detachment and violence to cultures of cooperation, peacefulness and nonviolence. Topics will seek to identify ways to highlight psychology’s value in homes, schools, workplaces and our communities at large. We, as psychologists, can become change agents by working with other professionals and agencies to identify causes that fuel violence and develop concrete tools that address and remedy these issues. Nonviolence can be promoted through advocacy and the dissemination of educational tools that reinforce an evolving view of cultural differences, self-awareness, violence and trauma.

What is the VIP Rate?
Last year we introduced the VIP registration rate for members only and received an incredibly positive response! Just in case you missed it last year, the VIP Rate is perfect for convention goers who are interested in attending not just the educational sessions but the meals and social functions as well! The VIP rate includes your registration at the convention and everything that entails (all workshops and PPA events, including the Keynote Address and Town Hall Meeting), as well as all of the ticketed events at a special discounted rate! This year’s rate includes a special opportunity to network with our keynote speaker, Diane L. Rosenfeld, JD, LLM.

- All ticketed events, including:
- Give Back Luncheon

All this for less than what you would pay for these options individually! Select “VIP” during the registration process to take advantage of this great rate!
