"Out on a Ledge, Stepping Out to Promote Psychology as a Science and Profession

October 28, 2011 
Ko'olau Ballrooms
Kaneohe, O'ahu, Hawai'i

E komo mai!

This year's theme Out on a Ledge, Stepping Out to Promote Psychology as a Science and Profession highlights Dr. Jeffrey Younggren’s progressive look at issues of practicing ethically and prudently in the age of digital communication for which participants will receive 6 CE credits. Dr. Younggren, a nationally-known expert on risk management issues is sponsored by APAIT and those whose malpractice insurance is provided by the Trust will benefit from a 15% reduction off their American Psychological Association Insurance Trust (APAIT) sponsored Professional Liability Policy premium for 2 consecutive years at policy renewal. Additional workshop and presentation offerings focus on challenges facing researchers and practitioners’ efforts to advance our profession in both the private and public sectors, with topics ranging from human trafficking, to conducting research and providing treatment to children in the public sector; from risk and resiliency in the Native Hawaiian population, to current and future challenges facing professionals conducting forensic evaluations. The convention topics allow us to both examine and take pride in the manner in which our profession is growing and evolving to meet the needs of a changing society. 

This is not only a time to immerse yourself in the convention’s educational content, but also to meet new colleagues, renew old relationships and rejuvenate and restore yourself. The presentations and events will be at the Ko’olau Ballrooms on the beautiful windward side of O`ahu. Please visit their website at 

The day will begin with a “Town Hall Meeting” discussion with Barbara Higa Rogers, Psy.D. (HPA President), Jeffrey Stern, Ph.D. (HPA President Elect), Jill Oliveira Gray, Ph.D. (Past President), and Nancy Sidun, Psy.D. (APA Council Representative). Join in this lively conversation to discuss professional concerns you feel are most important and to help shape the state and national agenda of the psychology profession! 

The winners of the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards (PHWA) will be announced at our luncheon. This is the 12th year that the Hawai`i Psychological Association (HPA), in cooperation with APA, has established the “Healthy Workplace” Awards in the State of Hawai'i. Several of our winners have gone on to achieve honors and recognition at the national level.
