  Message from the CPAGS Chair

My name is Sean P. Rose, and I am honored to be your 2019-2020 CPAGS Board of Directors Chair! Thank you for taking time to visit the CPAGS webpage!

Increasingly, the field of psychology is being called on to elucidate, make sense of, and provide alternatives to many different iterations of human behavior and functioning using our unique expertise and training in providing bio-psychospiritual-sociocultural services. At a time in which the world is so divided across sociopolitical lines and in which the global community grapples with the existential threat of climate change and a resurgence of xenophobic nationalism worldwide, these skills and expertise are perhaps more relevant than ever before as we are looked to for answers, relief, and a more constructive path forward.

I believe it has become increasingly important for us as prospective psychologists to integrate advocacy and a collective demand for social justice into our training and development as future psychologists. Fortunately, CPAGS aspires to not only provide opportunities for professional development as a prospective psychologist, but to also provide a community in which we can all feel more empowered and supported to act and defend the values of professional psychology as developing researchers, clinicians, and/or teachers to our society at large.

We can do much more and make much deeper an impact the more hands, minds, hearts, and cultural perspectives we have contributing! I invite you to join me in an effort to unite as many members of the next generation of psychologists in California as we can in the next year by encouraging CPAGS membership!

Together, our voices can boldly contribute to the solutions of daunting modern-day realities so that we might, ideally, fulfill one of our profession's most sacred functions: to inspire hope.

With all my very best,

 Sean P. Rose, M.A.
2019-2020 CPAGS Chair
