Hello Fellow SAPA Members,
I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you some of the exciting plans we have for CE opportunities in 2015. We have departed from our typical luncheon schedule this season in order to provide CE events that would help everyone fulfill their required CE's for the Arizona requirements.
On Saturday, February 21, 2015, Dr. Mayday Levine-Mata will be providing a 4-hour presentation that will meet the requirements for the 4 Child Abuse / Domestic Violence CE's. This presentation, Childhood Abuse & Historical Trauma: Understanding Interactions & Implications for Treatment, will be held at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel at Reid Park (445 S. Alvernon Way). Lunch will be provided. Registration is now open (https://sapatrauma.eventbrite.com). Thanks to Mayday for helping us with this!
On Friday, March 6, 2015, Dr. Andy Hogg will be providing a 2-hour presentation that will earn 2 Ethics CEs. His presentation, Ethics in Training and Supervision, will be held at the Child & Family Resources training room (2800 E. Broadway Blvd.). Lunch will be provided. Registration will be open very soon so check the SAPA website regularly (www.sapaonline.org). Thanks to Andy for agreeing to drive to Tucson to present for us and thanks to Eric Schindler for arranging space at CFR for us that day!
We have decided not to offer a CE luncheon in April since this would be so close to the renewal date that we know you will have all your CE's by mid-April and already sent your packet off to the board for renewal, right? :-) If you want something to do on our usual luncheon date (3rd Tuesday of the month), Child & Family Resources will be holding a luncheon that day. More news to come on that.
The CE Committee is excited about an event we are planning for the Fall. As some of you may know, Dr. David Lisak recently provided a short presentation at AZPA. His talk was very well received and there were many requests for him to do a full day event. We are very fortunate that Dr. Lisak agreed to do a full day presentation on Trauma for SAPA here in Tucson on Saturday, September 19th. Please mark your calendars now and save the date. We are planning a nice full day event to include lunch, partnerships with other organizations in Arizona, and several sponsors/exhibitors. We are hoping to reach out to psychologists, counselors, and a range of behavioral health providers in Tucson and Phoenix areas to attend this event. Of course, current SAPA members will receive an early bird registration option and a discount on the registration fee. We plan to open registration for this event in June. We are currently arranging partnerships and sponsorships for this event so if you have any suggestions for these, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Special thanks go out to Larry Morris for helping to make this event possible!
We plan to round out the Fall with 2 luncheons. We are still working out the details for these events and hope to hold them on our traditional 3rd Tuesday in October and November. However, we will be looking for a new regular venue for our luncheons due to a price increase and space limitations at The Arizona Inn. We will keep you posted on these plans. If you have any suggestions for venues, please email me at email@example.com.
I would like to end this message with a hearty thanks to all the CE committee members who put in a lot of time and effort to plan and run these events, and to Roxana and Johanna who help with many of the behind-the-scenes tasks. The CE Committee includes Andy Bernstein, Jenne Breslin, Jac Carlson, Jennifer Dvoskin, Jane Hamilton, Eric Schindler, Sarah Leone, and Larry Morris. Thanks team!!!
We hope to see you at some (or all) of these events.
Patti Beldotti, PsyD
CE Committee Chair
Have you been thinking about getting involved with SAPA activities or committees but don't want to get overextended?
Are you looking for a way to network with other SAPA members but only have limited time?
The SAPA CE Committee is looking for SAPA members (or student members) to assist with very specific CE Committee roles/tasks. This allows you to be involved with only a limited time commitment. Individuals may join the CE Committee to fulfill only the specific tasks they are interested in, rather than be expected to help with all tasks. Of course, individuals may be involved with more than one role if they wish, but it is not required. We hold 6-8 CE events per year. Attendance at all CE events is not required although it is desirable to attend some of the events.
Please take a look at the specific roles we are recruiting for below. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact the CE Committee Chair, Patti Beldotti (firstname.lastname@example.org) or any of the current CE Committee members (Jac Carlson, Jane Hamilton, Andy Bernstein, Jennifer Dvoskin).

What is Research Day?
Research Day is an opportunity for psychologists, psychology students, interns, and postdocs from Tucson and the surrounding areas, to share information about their ongoing or completed research projects with others in the psychological community. There will be options for oral presentations and/or poster presentations.
When & Where will Research Day be held?
Research day will be held on Saturday, May 3rd from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM at La Frontera (502 W. 29th St., Tucson, AZ 85713). This event is co-sponsored by The Southern Arizona Psychology Internship Center (SAPIC).
Will there be a cost to present at Research Day?
The event will be free for all presenters. There may be a small fee for psychologists from the community who are interested in receiving CE’s.
What can you do to help?
We are starting to gather information from individuals who may be interested in presenting at our first Research Day event. Please share this form with others who may be interested. You do not need to have the details of your presentation set up at this time, just a rough idea of your topic and type of presentation. We will have more formal applications in a few months that will ask for the details.

Hello SAPA Members,
I am writing to put out an invitation (and plea) for folks to consider joining the CE Committee. We are currently a small committee with much work to do in planning, coordinating, and holding CE events to benefit SAPA members. We could use a few more people to help with planning events, the registration process (which is much easier now with Event Brite being used), and help at the events, signing people in and so forth. Even if you are only able to help with one of these tasks, it would still be a big help.
Please consider joining even if you cannot attend every CE event. It is also a great way to meet other SAPA members and network. Please call or email me if interested or if you would like more information.
Thanks so much,
I wanted to let the SAPA membership know that we now have some updated guides for offering CE's.
If you (or your SAPA committee) are planning on offering a CE event, please contact me and I will send you an instructional guide that will explain the process and include all necessary forms that need to be submitted to the CE Committee. Please plan to submit all materials at least 2-3 months before your planned event.
Since we are currently in an APA-Audit year for our CE Approval, we want to make sure that all CE events meet the requirements put forth by APA.
Please contact me with any questions.
