2020 Convention - Call for Proposals


CPA 2020 Convention 

April 23-26, 2020
Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa
Newport Beach, CA

Psychology in Action -
Synthesizing the Culture, Art, and Science of Our Profession

We are looking for experts who can share their knowledge and experience with fellow psychologists at the 2020 California Psychological Association Convention. We are seeking proposals that illustrate the application of psychological research, science and principles to the many areas of psychology such as cultural diversity, advocacy, training & education, clinical interventions, technology, and psychology as it is applied in organizational settings.

We want dynamic speakers who will engage their audience during the presentation and give them take-home skills that deepen their understanding and provide new tools to use in the work they do as psychologists.

Some things to consider when thinking about submitting a proposal:

  • We know that our attendees prefer interactive learning, so please consider how you will offer an experiential learning environment during your presentation.
  • We select intermediate to advanced level proposals - please no introductory level content.
  • You may submit a maximum of two proposals.
  • If you are considering a panel format, there may be a total of four presenters, including the moderator or discussant.
  • We have a separate proposal process for posters with a deadline later this year; this invitation is for educational sessions that meet our objective of providing useful tools for practice in a variety of settings.
  • All presenters must register for convention (with some exceptions for individuals who are not psychologists, on a case by case basis).  We do offer a discounted registration fee for presenters.

The firm deadline for proposals is August 16, 2019Please note that we do not review incomplete proposals, so be sure your proposal is complete before submission.
